Default Grouse Ridge Setters?

Anyone know anything regarding recent activity at Grouse Ridge Setters, Oxford, N. Y.?

Attempts to contact them over the last 6 months have all failed. Rumors include they closed kennel operations and moved to Florida.

Any information would be appreciated.

Don't know and haven't heard anything of that nature, but since I've been out of the Setter loop since my great GRK Setter "Smoke" departed the planet, I couldn't tell you. A close friend of mine and I hunt public land literally over the hill from there and he goes up there frequently for real estate activities. I'll ask him to check next time he's up in Oxford.

I picked up a 2 year old started dog from him in September 2016. At that time they were selling off pretty most of their dogs and wrapping the operations up. He said possibly he might have an occasional litter, but pretty much he was done.

A friend of mine who has had two Grouse Ridge dogs, called them to get their response. The owner is dialing back operations, but will still have a few litters in the next several years before he retires. BTW, my friend's dogs are outstanding

That's what I had heard too.

I'm not looking for a breeder. I'm looking for information on Grouse Ridge, since they haven't returned any attempts at contact.

I don't doubt they are outstanding. I now have two dogs in the family with primarily Grouse Ridge blood, thus the interest.

Maybe try long gone setters. I donít
Know that much about them, but I think they have some common blood with grouse ridge and seem to breed to the same type.
