Ii wanted you to use me as a reference if you wanted to Newt may very well be the best pointer I have ever owned, your description of what he did didn’t do him justice he does tons more. For example when my other dog is on point and he doesnt see her all I have to say is back and he hits the breaks!! His nose is excellent and he is very intense and as you know when you say whoa its dead stop not take ten and then stop lol as far as his personality its definately the best Ive ever seen in a pointer I can even bring this dog in the house after a hard day of hunting and he sits right beside me the whole time. This is saying lots coming from me I hardly ever am pleased with a bird dog but Newt is really a cool dog I am so glad I called you and decided on Newt thanks also with your patience with me as you know I asked and called you numerous times calling from across country thanks for your honesty you were spot on with Newt we will do business again I wish there were more of you in the bird dog business bryan from missouri
Craig, Just a note letting you,and anyone intested, that I have now recieved my second pup from your kennel and I am very satisfied. My conversations with you about what I was buying and what I recieve turned out to be very consistent. I first bought a young dog that is a direct daughter of honky tonk. craig was insistent that her quailities and drive would fit my need for a birdy, stylish and biddable hunting dog and NSTRA competitor. He was right. I later went right back to craig for another HT pup. This would be from the maniac/heartbreak breeding. This pup also shows good style, health and socialization. Everyone knows that a well bred dog requires proper attention to achieve it’s greatest level of performance but starting with a dog that is healthy, sound and well socialized is an important aspect. These dogs have it. I would recommend craig and his kennel. He is a straight shooter and very helpful with the travel arrangements. DAVE in Nebraska.
I would like to thank Craig for the honesty on the Honky Tonk Female. She is
everything and more. Also, I would like to thank Craig and his wife for taking
care of the flight arrangements!

I bought one of the HONKY TONK HEARTBREAK puppies and Duchess from Craig Shaw and could not be more happier with them I took Duchess up in Northern Oklahoma the Sat. after I got her and we killed 20 pheasants over her she is Very easy to handle and a joy to hunt with. The pup is a VERY outstanding looking dog, its hard to believe that a six week old pup points the way he does I am sure that he will be a joy to hunt also it just shows that good breeding goes a long way Matt H.

I personally have two of his pups. They are out of Duchess Charmer, They are 3 mos. old now and show all the potential you would ever expect. Bold. Friendly. Very stylish. Excellent line of breeding. The Breeder takes excellent care of the pups prior to sale. Clean facilities. The pups are handled on a daily basis.
Being a Professional Trainer myself from the South, and having trained many dogs for years, it is easy for me to see the promise of these pups. I would recommend any of these pups. As I say, I have two of them. Ralph Russell Texas
We own several English Pointers from this Breeder He has some of the finest dogs I have ever owned.
We are now in the process of finishing off one as a Champion. If you can get one of his dogs, you will be well pleased.

Thank you Craig for the heartbreak puppy he is every thing you said he was and more, it is a pleasure doing business with an honest breeder.
After buying english pointers over the years and being burned by dishonest breeders I was reluntant to by another dog out of state, but a friend of mine recommended Craig. After talking with him on the phone and pictures thru the email, I felt he ws shooting straight with me, I recieved my male pup and have been working with him, I am more than pleased with the pup and Craig for his knowledge, this pup is more than Craig said it was I highly recommend this breeder to anyone wanting an outstanding dog.

I wanted to let you know how much I enjoy our Heartbreak pup we got from you, he is an outstanding dog.
I have him started on quail and he is pointing with a lot of intensity. I really appreciate all the help and your honesty, you sure made it easy.
Buying a dog over the internet is a scary proposition. But I have to say that this purchase was one of the best decisions I have ever made, I would recommend you to any one who is wanting to buy a quality pointer.
