About Us/Contact

At this time, all 2018 puppies are spoken for.  Please email bluestemkennels@gmail.com to inquire about future litters.

The voice of Bluestem Kennels is Charity Upchurch.  I consider myself a full-time mom of dogs and kids and a part-time English teacher and hunter.  I am also in charge of the kennel, so I raise and place the pups.  My husband Charles is a serious hunter when he isn’t doing his upper management thing in financial services.  Our primary hobbies are hunting and training dogs together.  We have 3 kids: our sixteen year-old daughter, Cordelia; our thirteen year-old son, Conrad; and our eight year-old son, Caleb.  Please see the About Our Dogs page for information regarding our current and retired breeding stock of dogs.

When we aren’t hunting or dog training, we love to travel and have adventures.

We are members of the Heartland Chapter of the North American Versatile Hunting Dog Association (NAVHDA) http://www.navhda.org/ and the AKC breed parent club, the American Wirehaired Pointing Griffon Association http://awpga.com/.  If you are interested in the future of the Wirehaired Pointing Griffon breed, we encourage you to join and get involved with these organizations!  We are the only Wirehaired Pointing Griffon kennel inspected and licensed by the Nebraska Department of Agriculture and are dedicated to producing quality AKC/NAVHDA registered hunting Wirehaired Pointing Griffon puppies.

Please see our Puppies page for information regarding future litters.

We only breed spring litters for the express purpose of hunting our dogs during the fall and winter. You can follow our puppies, training, and hunting here at bluestemkennels.com. We are also on Facebook as Bluestem Kennels~Wirehaired Pointing Griffons.  You can also search Bluestem Kennels on YouTube for our videos.

We are located near the Missouri River, in the Loess Hills of the Fontenelle Forest in Bellevue, Nebraska.

I haven’t added the past couple of years of hunting photos, so feel free to peruse our Archived Posts for additional pictures.
