Idaho Outback Wirehaired Pointing Griffons

Hunting Dog Breeds Raised: Wirehaired Pointing Griffon

We live on a little acreage in the farmlands of Idaho. We are a family including 5 kids, animals, and always bird dogs. We have been owned by English Pointers, Setters and GSHs. Each earned a place in our hearts. Our ultimate bird dog would be an instinctual hunter, trainable, and mostly a great family dog and connected companion. Now we can share our secret we found the package deal in the funny Wirehaired Pointing Griffon. Enjoy our pictures and stories, everyone is OUTBACK bred.

Goals at Idaho Outback Griffons

My philosophy is to produce a puppy at the height of his potential. We start by carefully selecting our breeding stock. I use AKC registered, health screened, tested dogs, that perfectly fall within AKC standards, that gives us the best chance to produce a healthy, long lived dog.

My second goal is to raise our dogs like a house hold pet as well as a hunting companion and a best friend for my ch. When I select a potential breeding animal I am looking for the joyous attitude Griffons are famous for, not too meek not to dominant. You will not see a rows of kennels with Griffons in them at my place. Our dogs are part of our household. We Co-Own with friends, so other dogs in our breeding program have their own family life.

Lastly I want to retain and selectively breed for natural versatile hunting abilities. All of the dogs we retain for potential breeding animals range tight, hunt hard, naturally point, and honor, love water, and retrieve willingly. We are looking for animals that do all this because that is what their
owners are doing. Not just because they are hunting machines.

All puppies are sold with a 36 month Genetic Health Guarantee.

I have a fairly energetic BLOG as well as an associated FACEBOOK Page
The BLOG will follow the development of each litter. It also contains rambling news. I am told it is addicting, just to be warned.

We will be breeding a several of our females for fall 2019 and May 2020


I keep a running waiting list for these upcoming pups 208-532-4822 or email at
I want my puppy people to have a great adventure.
We pay attention to details.
Outback bred Griffon puppies take a little time to get, but some things are just worth the wait:}
Thanks Christy
