Duluth, MN - USA
WINTER at MIREPOIX 2013-2014
Mirepoix Kennel is located 20 miles north of Duluth, Minnesota. Our "quiet" woodland setting is a perfect environment to raise, hunt and train this active little hound. Mirepoix pups are whelped in the house and are first and foremost our family pets. Ross and I take special care to make sure our dogs have all the attention their individual personalities demand.
Currently we have 12 PBGVs (5 generations), a lovely Pointer (Quinn) and a labrador retriever (Jada) in our family. Our pups spend their days romping in one of many dog yards. This allows our "kids" plenty of room to hunt and play. They also love the water (we live on a lake) and we even have one boy, Louis, who loves water retrieve. AND of course, we cannot forget our beautiful grandchildren - Patrick (10), Zoey (7) and Aiden (6), Elliot (3) and Allison (5 months)...better update the pictures!!
All of our dogs receive extensive, ongoing health clearances. At 8 weeks the pups are examined by our Vet and by our Vet Ophthalmologist in Minneapolis for CERF exams.* At two years of age all dogs in our breeding program have received OFA exams for the following: Heart – Thyroid – Patella – Hips. As well as advanced eye clearances for Glaucoma. Our breeding decisions are then based on the results of those tests.
