Welcome to Penzance Pointers
Our puppies are excellent companions and ambassadors for Pointers
everywhere. We strive to produce sound, correct moving Pointers with
exceptional breed type. It is also essential that our dogs can perform in
the field. Our first Pointer, Emmet, AFC/Ch Kinnike Emmet's Antic's JH
achieved his championship and Amateur Field Championship being the 4th
Pointer in the history of the breed to accomplish both titles. Most of our
dogs have Junior Hunter titles and juvenile Field Trial stake wins and
placements. We take extreme care and consideration of our puppies'
temperaments. They are extensively socialized in many different environments
and prove to be stable happy pets. Many of our dogs participate as Therapy
dogs certified with both TDI and Delta Society. They visit schools, nursing
homes, and hospitals and participate as READ dogs in libraries and schools.
Penzance is a young kennel whose first litter was whelped in 2000. One of
our most successful show dogs came from that first litter, River, Penzance
Kent of Kinnike, who now has 16 championship titles from around the world
including Spain, Venezuela, Guatemala and Costa Rica in addition to his
American and Canadian championships. He also won the 2005 Spanish National
Pointer Specialty with an entry of over 60 dogs and was best of breed at the
2005 World Show in Argentina.
We are also proud to have co-bred Ethel, Ch
Kinnike Ethel of Penzance, the first Bitch to ever complete her championship
from specialty wins only including Winners Bitch at the 2003 American
Pointer Club National. Her sister Isobel, Ch Kinnike Isobell of Penzance JH
completed her championship entirely from the Bred by Exhibitor class winning
several Best of Breeds over multiple specials, and Winners Bitch/Best of
Winners at the September 2004 Pointer Club of New Jersey specialty. She also
won the Best Bred by Exhibitor award at the Eukanuba Invitational in Tampa
Florida January 2005. We are also proud of Penzance Enigma of Kinnike JH who
was Winners Bitch, Best of Winners and Best Bred By Exhibitor at the 2005
American Pointer Club National Specialty. Edie has also placed in nearly
every puppy field trial stake she was entered in.
We have the good fortune to co-own and co-breed with several reputable
breeders around the world including Erica Bandes of Kinnike Kennels in
Virginia, Carrie Sablone of Enigma Kennels in Florida, Julie Pullan of
Ontario, Canada, Linda Valentino of California, Dee Andrutis of
Massachusetts, Sarah Terns and Richard Rogers of North Carolina, Tuija Verho
in Finland and Jose Omar Gonzalez in Venezuela.
Penzance is also committed to rescue and Maggie is one of the co-founders of
the very effective and well run www.PointerRescue.Org organization that is now the American Pointer Club designated rescue. Maggie has fostered and
rehomed over 300 rescue dogs.
