Barrett Weimaraners is pleased to announce a planned breeding this Winter between GCHB Silversmith Cuervo Paloma CD BN RN JH SH CA CGC V, “Ranger” and Smokey Topaz ‘n Barrett’s Ruby Mountain, “Ruby.” The purpose of this out-breeding (COI over ten generations is low at 9.98%) is to preserve a beautiful, moderate and versatile Weimaraner with a beautiful headpiece, balanced structure and high bird drive.
More about Ranger. Ranger was bred by Silversmith Weimaraners and finished his Championship easily before moving onto other venues such as hunt tests, rally trials, obedience trials, agility trials, and more. In the field, Ranger is a bird hunting fool. At home he is friendly, outgoing, loyal, and laid back.
More about Ruby. Ruby was our pick out of Smokey Topaz Weimaraner’s Boulder x Lenka litter in 2017. From an early age, Ruby was a chowhound, and what Ruby wanted, Ruby got. With her parents wrapped around her paws, Ruby was treated to morning hunts, afternoon strawberry picking, and evenings snuggles on the sofa.
The best puppies out of this litter are expected to do very well in AKC conformation shows, as well as hunt tests and ratings. As companion dogs, we expect them to be active, loyal, and family-oriented.
- November 2021 – Breeding
- December 2021 – Pregnancy confirmation
- January 2022 – Puppies due
- March 2022 – Puppies placed with new families
A microblog will be started for this litter once puppies are born, and updates will be posted here at least once a week. At around seven weeks of age, puppies will be aptitude/temperament tested, introduced to live game birds, and evaluated for proper structure. Prospective owners will be notified which puppy will be coming home after the series of tests have been completed.
11/14/2021 UPDATE: No companion inquiries, please. At this time we are still accepting inquiries for show-prospect homes but the interest list for companion puppies is full/closed. For those interested in a future Barrett puppy (pet/companion, or otherwise), please feel free to check out our other planned breedings and submit a prospective owner questionnaire if there’s a litter you might be interested in getting a puppy from. Thank you!
