Thank you! Miley is doing AMAZING! She has got
to be the best pup I've ever had. She is such a good girl and just so happy.
I know this was random - asking about papers almost 2 years later but every
now and then I think about it and thought I'd try!! Here is the little girl!
She didn't get too big! Actually went to the vet yesterday - she weighs 43
lbs and she's doing great! Again- we love this girl! Her personality is just
amazing! Thank you for getting back to me!!! I can't wait until it's time to
get Miley a brother or sister!!!!!
I hope all is well. I can't believe it has been
4 months since we picked up Romano! He has grown so much and is a beautiful
dog. He is very smart, and sometimes very stubborn. I think he has adapted
quiet well to his new family.
My dog Sadie is 6 mouths old she is so smart and has a great personality. We are so lucky we found south side farm. They gave us a beautiful puppy....Allison (Washingtonville, New York)
My dog Sadie is 6 mouths old she is so much fun.
She as a great personal and very smart. We are so happy we found Southside
farm.....Allison (Washingtonville, NY)
Hope all is well and all the GSP pups that went
home are adjusting well. Our little guy Archer is settling right in at home.
His temperament is wonderful and he's so good with the girls. We couldn't be
happier! Thank you so much, you did a great job selecting our newest family
member. Sending along some pics. More to come for sure:) by the way, are you
in Facebook? If so could you reach our to me....Mike & Family (Rochester, NY)
Saoirse from Annie's December litter is now
almost 10 months old. She's now measuring 24' at the shoulder and 48 lbs.
Basically she is all leg and what an incredible athlete (the latter being
Hello again from Chicago! It's been a while so I figured we were overdue for an update. Saoirse and her Golden sister are still getting along famously, cuddling frequently. Saoirse even crawled into the crate on July 4th to keep Gwen company during the fireworks. Saoirse passed her AKC Star Puppy program with flying colors back in April and has been making great strides in all of her training since then. We couldn't be more proud of her. She's already a master at fetch and I feel like she might do really well in flyball! She's now seven months old and already 22" at the withers, so as expected she's going to be a big girl with an even bigger personality. She's a complete clown with such a serious little face. She has become mortal enemies with a rabbit that lives right outside the fence of the dog park and the bane of many pigeons. We're moving to California this fall so she'll soon be terrorizing all sorts of non-city wildlife, which will bring her great joy. I've already told my husband she's the love of my life; he doesn't seem too offended. But with that face, who could be?...Dani (Chicago, IL)
It has been awhile since we've connected (longer
than I intended!) but I wanted to share an update on Bennett and of course
some of our favorite pictures! He is 10 months old now, almost 60 pounds,
and loves loves tennis balls and his peanut butter kong. He plays everyday
with his "squad" of doggy friends on his group walks with our dog walker and
at night around the fields of our place. He runs every morning with Dad and
lots of snuggles at night with Mom. Summertime has brought around a love of
swimming with his life jacket and or course more squirrels and birds to
point at. We love him so much... he is basically our baby! We receive at
least 2 compliments on every walk we go on - he's quite the handsome boy.
Thank you so much for bringing him into our lives, we can't imagine our
lives without him. Furever grateful, Rachael & Mark (East Boston,
Happy New Year! I just wanted to share how our
puppy, Zeppelin is doing since we got him last month. He is growing like a
weed, loves peanut butter, sleeping on people's heads, watching tv and
snoring. He is potty trained, TEETHING and started puppy school. He adjusted
SO great once we brought him home. Our first nights seems almost too easy.
He learned 'sit' in a matter of two days and we taught him to ring a bell
when he needs to go outside. They truly are such a smart breed. We couldn't
have asked for a better puppy or experience finding him. Thank you so much
for all of your help and for bringing us together with our puppy! I will
send you a few updates as we grow!....Gina (Schenectady, NY)
Gunnar is doing excellent and growing fast he
had his 2nd vet check up Nov. 3rd and he was 23lbs!!!!!
The female puppy (Penny) we picked up on 3/30/14
is doing just fine. Her pointing instincts are great. We started her on a
duck wing tied to a string which she is pointing to in the photo. Can't
wait to start field training in October....Vic (East Coast, United
She is a wonderful dog and growing fast, she is
now 30 pounds as of yesterday and extremely healthy. She is a real eye
catcher, the center of attention where ever we take her and she knows it lol.
I will send some
We are so very thrilled with our GSP. She is
beautiful, smart, and very

Update My husband, Dennis, and I came to you and left
with our dog, Buddy, 2 1/2 years ago. We wanted to send you a few updated
pictures and to thank you again as he is a wonderful addition to our family.
Buddy has an extremely active life. He runs/walks on the average of 25+
miles a week with Dennis. They are an inseparable pair. Buddy is a fantastic
hunter. Dennis has hunted with all our previous german shorthaired pointers
(we had three prior to Buddy) and he is amazed with the "nose" on Buddy.
Dennis takes him every fall and they flush pheasants and grouse. Buddy has
literally taken a bird out of the air on his own... He loves the water and
travels extensively (since I retired a year ago, Buddy has been wintering in
North Carolina). There is an area by Lake Ontario that Dennis takes him to
and Buddy has found painted turtles and runs with them back to the car.
Dennis puts them back and without fail, the next time they go to that area,
Buddy finds another and another.
I thought I would send you a few updated pictures so you can see how

Dena, Dennis and Buddy (Pulaski, NY)
I know you deal with many people in relation to
your dogs and puppies, but, I hope you might remember my husband, Dennis and
I. We contacted you and came to see your beautiful kennels this past fall
looking for a german shorthaired pointer puppy. We had lost our wonderful
friend and companion, Cozmo, (german shorthaired pointer - our third, 13
years old) a short time prior to that.
Here are 2 pictures of "Cooper". Michael made the round trip to bring him home that Thursday without a hitch. Cooper is probably the most calm, loving, sociable, and when he wants to be, intelligent dog we've encountered (I've owned several different species along the way). When we asked for a puppy that would acclimate quickly to our plethora of pets & family we didn't think it was possible to determine at "puppy" age their personalities, but this one is right on target. He is quick to learn and enjoys both people and other dogs (especially our neighbor). He's growing at a good clip and his markings are getting more pronounced. We are stopped very often while walking him, as not many people own these type of dogs down here in south Florida. Everyone comments how beautiful he is. He has finally gotten used to our nasty thick grass and the very hot concrete/asphalt . Now if we can only get him to stop chasing our cats! I'll send more pictures as he grows as I am sure he will be more handsome as he grows....Peppi & Michael (Sunrise, South Florida)
Cooper's birthday present was a real hit!
Cassie arrived just in time to celebrate. Cooper has not been able to get
enough of her and frequently has to be reminded she is just a baby. He
tries to play tug of war, "Indian giver" with his toys, and has agreed to
share a portion of his pillow with her. Although she has only been with us
for a week now, she is beginning to go to the door to let us know she's
"gotta go". We have a cow bell that Cooper used to ring when he wanted us
to hurry up and she's rang it once or twice. She's quite different than
he, as she is a very confident dog (except for the 1st day). She walks
proudly with her tail straight up and is calm around other dogs and
people. Cooper is very excitable and loves to jump. We are hoping that she
will wear off on him as well as drain some of his enormous amount of
energy! On the flip side maybe his loving nature and funny antics will l
cross over to her. When we get ice from the fridge, Cooper comes, as well
as Cassie (even if she's in a deep sleep). We give him a cube and she sits
under him waiting for the pieces to fall. It's a hoot!
UPDATESeason's Greetings from Cooper and Cassie
We were hoping to have you update our spot on your web site with our "favorite" GSP' for all to see. I was wondering if you got a chance but in any event I hope you had a wonderful holiday season and are managing with all the winter storms you are having. I love the seasons, but it is weather such as yours that makes me happy I'm not in New York now! Take care and I've added another picture of our grandson and Cassie.
|They are the best dogs ever, and we love them so much. We knew from the moment we arrived at South Side Farm and saw how well it was maintained, and how healthy all the dogs were, that we had found the right place. As you probably know, we came to you for a Vizsla, but when we saw the German Shorthaired Pointers we fell in love with them too and had to have one. We came very close to getting a Weimaraner too! But three puppies at once... Maggie and Gordon are best friends. They play with each other all the time. Great to watch them playing tug of war with the same toy, one getting the toy and bringing it to the other so that they can play. Wonderful, healthy, happy dogs who have brought so much to our daily family life! Thank you....Steve K. (Bedford, NY)|
Thought you'd like to see what a beauty Dory's
grown into. Here, in
our back yard, she is looking for the local flock of turkeys that has
been making the rounds of the neighborhood. She's a great family dog
and we're very happy with her. Thank you!...Dory S. & Family (West Sand Lake, NY)
|Dear South Side Farm, Hello, I just wanted to give you an update on "Jack" the 10 month. old GSP formerly known as Trevor. We adopted him from you about three weeks ago, as you know. We couldn't ask for a better dog - he fit right in with the family as soon as we brought him home. Everybody comments on what a beautiful dog he is. He is very intelligent and learns things quickly, he listens very well (most of the time!), and is great with all the family, neighborhood kids, dogs etc. He loves cats but they are not real fond of him! The kids walk him each day, and take him to the ball field to run each day as well, then I take him jogging with me each evening, so he is getting plenty of exercise - and loving every minute of it! I have also started some field training with him as well. We have been working with some Pheasant dummies, he learned to retrieve perfectly to hand in about 2 days, and he has a great nose, he always finds the dummy quickly no matter where I hide it. On behalf of my family, I would just like to thank you South Side Farm for keeping your word, and holding on to Jack for us until we returned from vacation, as you promised you would. I know you probably could have gotten more money for him, and I was impressed by the fact that you were more concerned with finding Jack a good home. We will send pictures soon. Thanks again South Side Farm for everything - we'll keep you posted....Allen & Jill M. & Kids|
I felt an obligation to write this letter to
sincerely thank South Side Farm, Lisa and the entire staff of South Side
Farm Dogs. At the
time of this letter our German shorthaired pointer, “Kava” is four months
old. South Side Farm promised that he would select the perfect puppy to match our
family’s lifestyle and I’m pleased to say that he far exceeding our
expectations. Kava is the most handsome Shorthair that you have ever seen.
He has the proudest walk and perfect body lines. Every time we take him for
a walk or to the pet store people ogle over him. His solid black color and
distinct body draw attention every where we go. Our veterinarian and his
staff call Kava their “Black Beauty”.
Kava has never littered indoors and from the first week we had him, he has let us know when he needs to go outside. He is a happy and energetic puppy and he has a great personality that you just fall in love with. He is extremely bright and eager to learn and please us. I belong to a sportsmen’s club in Connecticut, I started to field train Kava at 9 weeks old and he has progressed into an extremely good sporting dog already. He has a great nose and loves to work in the field. He holds point without any check cords or other restraints. Many other members of my club asked to accompany me during our training exercise to witness the 16 week old pup working birds like an old seasoned veteran. Kava has become a local legend already. My family and I could not be happier with our choice to purchase a puppy from the fine folks at South Side Farm Dogs. Thank you so much for doing what you do....Michael M. (Oxford, CT)
Thank you again! Jake P. (Ringwood, N.J.)
We would like to thank you so very much for such
a wonderful experience with all of you and the "new addition to our family",
Colby (the puppy)! He is such a pleasure. We had him completely house
trained after 4 days in his new home. Not only is he adorable, but very
smart! He already knows how to sit, and give us his paw, and loves his
treats! We can't stop hugging and kissing him! His personality is
exceptional. He's very affectionate, and eager to please. Everything you
said he would be, he is, and more! He's been to the vet once since he's with
us, and the vet couldn't believe what a beautiful pup he is, healthy, and
said he had to come from an exceptional breeder. He is so right! You are the
best, and we can't thank you enough for our new family member. We are
considering a playmate for him he's so great! Thank you all so much! You are
terrific!....Dale, Jesse, Nicolas and Colby S. (Elmsford, NY)
Well, the above family did decide to give Colby a playmate and this is what they wrote to us:
Thinking about all of you @ SSD, and thanking you for our 2 pups who are enjoying life at the San Marco Household!!!! Enjoy the picture! Thanks again!
Just an update on South Side Farm Jake. He is the most amazing dog we have ever had. He is so smart (and sometimes stubborn!). He has a great disposition, when you talk to him he answers with a groan as if he is talking back to you. He is 20 weeks old and weighs 34 lbs. You were right, the Royal Canin food is the best. As you can see in the attached pictures, he is a beautiful specimen! We thank you for Jake everyday and could not be any happier with him. He is a wonderful addition to our family. Everywhere we go people stop and play with Jake and ask where we got him and of course we tell them about you and South Side Farm Dogs. Hope all is well and I will update you on Jake frequently....Karin & Tim (Hillsdale, NY)
Here is a South Side Jake update! Its been a long time! Jake is now almost a 1 1/2 years old! He is a wonderful companion. Smart, sometimes too smart for his own good. I have attached a few pics so that you can see how he has grown into a beautiful and loving companion. He is our pride and joy!....Karin & Tim (Hillsdale, NY)
Hi South Side Farm, It's been about a year and a half
since we picked up our GSP pup, Griffin, (11/13/06 litter) and we wanted
to let you know that he's doing well! We adore him. We wanted a pointer,
in part, to keep us active, and he sure does. We love that we can
rollerblade with him, and he runs right along side our bikes. We didn't
expect him to be such a swimmer, but of the 4 or so hours we were on the
lake yesterday, he swam for about 3 of them! He loves the boat and loves
the water, but most of all he loves to cuddle. We love that he's able to
go where we go, and at the end of the day he's mush with us on the couch.
Griffin was an early arrival for us because we were anticipating the April
litter that year, but we can't imagine a more perfect pup for us. Thanks
for thinking of us for him!....Jaime and Randy (Malta, NY)
Just wanted to take a moment and Thank You all
for bringing our new child into our lives. His name is Reilly, a German
Shorthair pointer. He was born on April 9th, 2009 and accepted into our
family in the beginning of June. He is now almost 9 months old, and is
everything that South Side Farm and his co-workers stated. He is a beautiful
animal, very intelligent, full of energy and has passed all of our Vet’s
check-ups with flying colors. The real test is that I wanted to wait and
see how he developed. Bone structure, so far is fabulous, and he is
still growing. Ears are perfect, nice and long as they should be.
Character, is exactly and maybe slightly exceeding our expectations.
Awareness, Reilly could be a family dog as well as a good hunter, for us
he is family. Personality, South Side Farm, you labeled him a “Brat” and that was
right on and always looking to get into trouble like a little boy. He is
worth every bit of this. Reilly carries himself beautifully and has a
fabulous gait. My wife and I have always had purebreds; we have been
very attached to each and every one of them. They say mutts are
healthier, but I never see the personality or character like that of a
well bred canine, as long as you pick the breed that fits your
lifestyle.Late March 2009, we had to put down our Weimaraner “Oliver”
due to cancer “Lymphoma”, he was not purchased at South Side Farm. It was a
sad day; our children are grown, and walking into an empty house after
that just outright sucked. So onward we went, I checked breeders online
from coast to coast and border to border. After speaking with South Side Farm on
the phone, South Side Farm was on our Top-5 list. From there I dug a little
deeper and eventually decided to give South Side Farm a visit to see if this
was the place that our next puppy would come from. We were pleasantly
surprised, the mountain setting was great, and the facility was
fabulous, clean, grounds were immaculately manicured. South Side Farm and his
people were very friendly and answered all my questions professionally.
All documentation on our new pup was up to date, and great advice was
passed on upon the day of delivery of Reilly to us. There were no
surprises or demands out of the ordinary that you could get from other
breeders. In the near future my wife and I plan to get another Weimie as
well. South Side Farm had two fabulous looking studs in the kennel, of which I
would love to have a puppy from. If not this year, definitely next year
we will again make the 3.5 hours trek to New York State. I have been so
pleased with South Side Farm, his people and the new addition to our family, that
upon request he may give our unlisted home number out as a reference to
interested parties. Happy New Year to All, and South Side Farm, I apologize for
the latency of this testimonial, but I did want to evaluate Reilly
thoroughly before sending.Here are a few pictures of Reilly, enjoy.Your
Friends....Kim & Karen
My wife and I purchased a gsp puppy from you
31\2 years ago. Reese is an amazing dog, I own a large hunting preserve in
upstate NY and Reese is a perfect fit. He is an outstanding hunting dog,
and a great companion. My clients are always amazed at his skills and raw
hunting talent. He will go for hours non stop and when were finished he's
ready for more. We began taking him to AKC hunt tests 2 years ago, and he
literally hunts circles around the other dogs. He constantly has a crowd
of people stopping by to admire him, these events usually have people who
judge dog shows attending, our last hunt test two of them told us he is
the most perfectly put together shorthair they have ever seen. He is
absolutely the perfect dog, great in the field, great in the house, great
with kids and great with other animals One of my guides just lost his GSP
to old age and is looking for another, he is wondering if Reese's parents
are still breeding, I believe his mother is Bosslady and father Vom
Riverwoods Pop. Please let me know and i will have him contact you. I
attached a picture of Reese at his last hunt test....Brian
We just wanted to send you a recent picture of Cooper and Cassie. It's hard to believe that they both were small puppies when we got them. We always get many compliments whether we are walking them or at the dog park. They are quite a pair and have become very attached. It was the best decision to add Cassie to our family and we realize Cooper (as well as Michael & I) (are) is happier. They manage to keep each other occupied, constantly playing and when exhausted they sleep next to each other. Cooper is a mild, sweet, and very sensitive dog while Cassie's nickname is "kevlar". She doesn't let anything or any dog get in her way. She is always happy (her tail is always wagging) and very affectionate. They both have those qualities that you'd want in your "best friend". Thank you again for our beautiful dogs!....Michael & Peppi (Sunrise, Florida)
I wanted to show you the most recent pictures of Gunnar. He is our GSP that we purchased from you back in the winter of '07. He is 2 1/2 now. Gunnar is spoiled beyond belief but in a good way. We love him more than any person can love a dog and in return he showers us with just as much love. He goes to work everyday with my husband to the office. Gunnar truly is one of the family members. He has to be by far the sweetest dog I have ever encountered! Gunnar is a superstar wherever we go. He gets a lot of looks from people. I absolutely love the black color on him! I want another GSP in the worst way but my husband doesn't want to take 2 dogs to the office. So as soon as we get our own office building we will be getting another pup.... you can count on that. These pictures are from the Outer Banks, NC. We recently vacationed there just for Gunnar! He had a blast. He loves to swim but I think he prefers lakes to oceans. He still got wet though. He loved the pool too! So I just wanted to say "thank you" for all the wonderful work you do and "thank you" for providing us with this wonderful animal Thanks Again....Beth (Syracuse, NY)
