About Green Mountain Griffons
Mickey Murphy has had a lifetime of raising and hunting , pointing bird dogs. Mickey's dad and uncles all had pointing bird dogs of many different breeds. During the 1980's most of Mickeys efforts were primarily with brittany spaniels. But Mickey's uncle Uncle Charlie Murphy got interested in the Wirehaired Pointing Griffon breed. He told Mickey that the Wirehaired Pointing Griffon was head and shoulders better than any other bird dog he had seen. So Mickey and his family acquired their first Wirehaired Pointing Griffon in the early 90's (Wiskers), while he still had brittanys. As the brittanys grew older Mickey gradually replaced his brittanys with Wirehaired Pointing Griffons, having his first litter of Wirehaired Pointing Griffons in 1995.
Green Mountain Griffons is a registered breeder with the American Wirehaired Pointing Griffon Association, and is a very small breeder only producing 2 or 3 quality litters a year. Unlike a "kennel" operation our dogs live in our house, not a kennel. Our pups are born and raised in our house and handled everyday to insure they are very well socialized and prepared to go to their new homes.
