Join PRL in helping you learn how to raise your bird dog pup! We are committed to seeing that all our pups succeed. We are here for you every step of the way!
RESERVING A PUP FROM PRL: All current puppies and planned breedings are listed on this page. Please read and scroll down. We are always accepting reservations on current and future litters. A nonrefundable deposit of $600 is required to reserve a Paint River Llewellin Setter puppy. In the event that you have a late reservation and there are more reservations than pups born, your reservation is automatically transferred to the next litter where pups are available or you have the option to wait for your female’s next litter. Please understand this might be one year later. All PRL puppy purchasers are required to purchase the PRL Vimeo On Demand video series. We want to insure that every step is taken by us to help your puppy succeed not just in our efforts in our breeding program but in our raising program.
PRL CLIENT SALE POLICY: WE DO NOT SELL TO INDIVIDUALS WHO INTEND TO BREED OR COMPETE IN TRIALS AND TESTS WITH THEIR PUP. WE SELL OUR PUPS TO FAMILIES THAT ARE LOOKING FOR A LOVING FAMILY COMPANION THAT HAS EXCELLENT BIRD DOG POTENTIAL ON WILD BIRDS. WE WILL RETAIN BREEDING RIGHTS TO SOME OF THE MALE PUPPIES/DOGS WE SELL, WHICH WOULD BE DISCUSSED PRIOR TO BUYER MAKING A DEPOSIT. THERE IS A “NO BREEDING” CLAUSE IN OUR SALES CONTRACT WHICH YOU CAN READ BELOW ON THIS PAGE IN THE PDFs LISTED.
DUE TO THE SOFT INTELLIGENT NATURE OF OUR SETTERS— PRL PROHIBITS THE USE OF FLANK COLLARS IN TRAINING STEADINESS AND CLASSIC FORCED FETCHING METHODS ON OUR PUPPIES IN THEIR DEVELOPMENT. THESE METHODS WORK WELL COLLECTIVELY FOR MANY BREEDS AND TYPES WHEN DONE PROPERLY. HOWEVER, CERTAIN LINES OF SETTERS, INCLUDING OURS, THAT HAVE A SOFTNESS AND VARIABLE TRACKING/STALKING/POINT STYLE THAT DOES NOT DO WELL WITH CERTAIN TRAINING TECHNIQUES. WE BREED SETTERS THAT WILL STALK AND SET AT TIMES. FLANK COLLARS STAND THE POTENTIAL TO DISALLOW OUR SETTERS TO BE SETTERS TO A DEGREE. WE WANT TO INSURE THAT ALL OUR BUYERS ARE ENCOURAGING THEIR PUP TO BE WHAT WE HAVE BRED THEM TO BE.
PUP DEPARTURE: In the event PRL plans on keeping a pup(s) from a litter, PRL may not select clients’ pups until 12 to 16 weeks of age. Otherwise pups are scheduled to depart or be picked up by their new owners around 8 weeks of age. Litter schedules and details are listed individually below and updated as litters are born and decisions are made.
OUR DOGS ARE OUR FAMILY: We breed for quality, not quantity— there are only so many litters in a given calendar year and we look for the very best hunting-family homes we can find.
PRL HEALTH GUARANTEE: Our Llewellin puppies have their dewclaws removed, receive several dewormings, and one or two vaccines depending upon age at the time of pick up. Paint River provides a three-year health guarantee, providing you follow our health and replacement puppy guidelines, on any congenital diseases that visibily impact the dog’s health.
COMPREHENSIVE GENETIC & HIP SCREENINGS: PRL uses Embark Veterinary (click on this link to learn some more) the leading advanced DNA testing company in the country. Embark Veterinary is a research partner with the university of Cornell. Our Breeder Kit tests for 175 different genetic disorders, inbreeding coefficients, genetic relatedness for mean kinships, cross referencing levels and locations of homozygosity and so much more! All our breeding dogs undergo this testing in addition to a vet exams for overall total body health for heart and eyes, in addition, with the OFA and PennHip certifcations. That’s not all! We are well educated in canine genetics through many courses including but not limited to many of the courses offered by the Institute of Canine Biology (ICB).

OMIIMII BY ZHINGOS LITTER
DUE DATE EARLY JANUARY.
Omiimii is a grouse finding machine. She hunts like a cat as much as any I’ve ever seen. She has an average nose but my most stealthy tracker that has incredible focus and over the years has trailed hard running ruffed grouse over hundreds of yards into a beautiful point for the perfect shot opportunity. Omiimii is very cautious in the grouse woods with incredible natural staunchness. Omiimii naturally honors. This little girl is a fantastic grouse dog. She checks in often and hunts for the gun beautifully in a quick and slow manner. Omiimii’s range is 0 – 50 yards (first season range was up to 90 yards), averaging 20 – 40 yards. She is my most heat tolerant girl of the entire pack. She has produced the very best natural retrievers PRL has produced to date. Every friend and client that has hunted over all my dogs all favor Omiimii in the grouse woods. She is such a fun dog to hunt behind. Omiimii weighs in at 30 pounds.
This is a repeat breeding. In their first litter they had eleven pups and the reviews overall have been outstanding. Pups are spread to all four corners of the country and excelling. PRL’s favorite Omiimii litter and we felt the need to try it again. Pups due to whelp early January.
See more photos and learn more about Omiimii on our Dams page and on social media as you scroll back during the hunting season months.
FOR WINTER/SPRING 2019/20
Widget is one of the most incredibly intelligent dogs I’ve been around with one of the most emotional personalities, which has both its pluses and minuses. Around the home, she is known as my dog-wife. Widget is a serious talker, in my experience a sign of great intelligence. She’s a dominant girl with a huge ego. Widget’s hunting abilities are second to none— with a superior nose, incredible staunchness, she is a very cautious cold nosed cat-like hunter in the grouse woods. She is an exceptional natural honoring dog. She is one of the greatest grouse dogs I’ve seen in my hundreds of dogs in the woods. She checks in often and hunts for the gun beautifully at a nice slow steady pace. Widget’s range is 0 – 60 yards, averaging 25 – 50 yards. She produces a high percentage of good quality natural retrievers. She weighs in at 42 pounds.
See more photos and learn more about Widget on our Dams page and on social media as you scroll back during the hunting season months.
STELLA BY DUNCAN LITTER
DUE DATE EARLY JANUARY
Stella is a phenomenal grouse dog. Quality nose, naturally points, backs, and retrieves. Stella’s range is 0 – 75 yards, averaging 30 – 50 yards. She checks in every few minutes and hunts for the gun nicely. She has a beautiful gait and moves smooth through the grouse woods. A very true dog, if she goes on point the bird is usually going to flush soon thereafter. Stella has a very soft mouth when handling birds. Just a pleasure in every respect. Stella is a calm, quiet, sweet girl that doesn’t care in the least about social status among other dogs. Stella weighs in at 38 pounds.
This is repeat breeding. In Stella’s first litter she only had one pup via A.I. She had a very easy whelp and was a fantastic mother. “Uno,” The singleton pup is doing terrific in Canada pointing ruffed grouse and blossoming in the Northwoods at a very young age. This has been a very successful A.I. process this time around and we look forward to hopefully a decent size litter out of these two great grouse dogs.
See more photos and learn more about Stella on our Dams page and on social media as you scroll back during the hunting season months.
FOR WINTER/SPRING 2019/20
Missy is a spectacular grouse dog. She has an exceptional nose, naturally points, backs, and retrieves. Missy’s range is 0 – 60 yards, averaging 20 – 40 yards. She checks in every couple minutes; if ever out of sight in the first place and spot on hunts for the gun. She’s unbelievably light on her feet. Missy’s hunt style is more cat-like and may stalk and point in closer to the bird to set up a shot opportunity. Missy is a calm, quiet, sweet girl that doesn’t care in the least about social status among other dogs. Just a real gentle nature about her. Missy has a very soft mouth when handling birds. Missy weighs in at 38 pounds.

FOR WINTER/SPRING 2019/20
Azaadi entered her first grouse season at just turning 5 months old. She could not have shown more promise.

Her second season has been outstanding and she continues to show that she has all the tools for a high quality grouse dog. Azaadi is a true dog and sticks birds hard and fast. Azaadi’s range is 0 – 90 yards, bouncing between 30 – 70 yards. She’s an intelligent, fiery little girl that hunts at a very quick pace. Super nose, incredible retriever and great stamina.

TO ALL PUP INQUIRERS: Serious inquires only, please. All great family dog homes will be considered that are able to provide active recreational lives for these pups.
