Puppies will be ready to go home at the end of June when they are at least 8 weeks of age. If you are interested please reach out to us.
This promises to be an excellent breeding using dogs with strong drive, style and great temperaments. This litter will be with our Juno and a fine stud dog named named Seymour. Together they bring a unique outcross with bloodlines from the US, Australia and Europe backing to proven field performance and conformation pedigrees.

- Juno – Tamdhu Miliko Celtic Tempest, has maternal lineage back to our first Gordon in 1992. She is just a few points from completing her bench Champion, having her required majors in hand. She has demonstrated a keen hunting instinct, natural strong pointing instincts, good drive and is biddable. We were shooting ruffed grouse over solid points at 9 months of age. She retrieves game birds, including woodcock and jumbo wild pheasants to hand, naturally. She loves water and will swim and retrieve bumpers or game happily. You’ll observe Juno’s pedigree backs into our traditional lines from the US on the dam’s side, and to Australian lines on the sires side. She’s a nice modest size, at 48 pounds today.
- Seymour – CH Munroc The Black Watch SH is moderately sized and biddable true to his European lineage, he handles nicely for his owner at Munroc Farm. Seymour is working on his Grand Championship and is near to completing his Amateur Field Champion title. His UK and European bloodlines contribute genetic diversity and valued characteristics for health, longevity, beautiful heads, heavy bones, rich colors, and outgoing dispositions. Link to Amscot Gordon Setters for more about Seymour’s heritage. Seymour weighs in right around 70 pounds in field condition. We are fortunate to be able to access Seymour and thank Rhonda for making it possible. Seymour’s photos on this site are credited to Rhonda.
- A Tamdhu Gordon Setter will hunt true to its heritage and is bred for health and temperament.
- We believe in providing quality early development and socialization to our puppies. We breed infrequently, with quality our primary goal, We plan our litters carefully with several objectives in mind. These objectives are to preserve and improve hunting drive, stamina, style, trainability, conformation, temperament, and health. This means the we often reach out and select from the best available dogs in the breed (as in this litter) and not just use what happens to be sitting in our kennel.
- We are active members of the Gordon Setter Club of America. We donate our time and resources to support Gordon Setter Rescue, Field Trials, Hunt Tests, Specialty Shows, Supported Entries, and field training days.
- We expect our Gordons to be great companions. Temperament is extremely important to us. Our dogs make their homes in busy households and are exposed to a broad range of experiences. We expect these puppies will be excellent pets but you must provide a rich, varied environment for them to develop fully sound temperaments. This is particularly important in that first “golden year” of the puppies life when their emotional development and adaptability is greatest.
- If you are looking primarily for a pet please understand every dog needs a job. Something more than just laying around the house 24/7. Recognize these are sporting dogs and they need physical exercise and a highly engaging environment to remain happy and healthy. If you are not already inclined, please consider becoming active in some facet of field work, obedience, agility or other activity that will enrich your relationship with your Gordon Setter.
- Do not be put off if you are a great distance away. Our puppies have found homes in many corners of the US. We can help arrange transfer of your puppy at the appropriate time.
- You should know in recent years only a couple dozen litters of Gordon Setters are registered with AKC. There is a greater pool of unregistered Gordon’s out there. If quality matters to you, your research and patience will be rewarded with a Tamdhu Gordon Setter.
- If you simply must have a Gordon Setter today and can’t wait for a Tamdhu puppy then we wish you luck in your search. Do your homework, study some pedigrees and ask lots of questions. Ask us and we may be able to provide a referral to an appropriate breeder for the style of Gordon Setter you seek.
- Being a hunter or show person is not a requirement for owning a Gordon Setter from Tamdhu. Being a great pet owner is.
