Pine Shadows

Established 1976

English Springer Spaniels

Producing a top quality English Springer Spaniel gun dog and a household companion within the same dog has been the goal of Pine Shadows since 1976.Puppies, Started Dogs, and Experienced Gun Dogs available from our ORVIS-Endorsed Hunting Dog Program.


  • Life moves quickly in the 21st Century. It seems everywhere you look technological advancements are improving our way of life. Some things, however, still require that old fashioned touch. Here at Pine Shadows we feel the best way to produce high quality English Springer Spaniels is to do it the way we have been for over forty years, with a lot of hard work, patience and love for the dogs.

    We take pride in knowing our dogs, making them a part of our extended family. This allows us to place our pups with specific families to ensure all those involved, both two and four legged, are satisfied. Taking the time to know our customers and our dogs has helped us to successfully place hundreds of dogs into loving, supportive homes over the years. We do not believe in rushing Mother Nature. It takes time to produce dogs with outstanding noses, trainability, retrieving skills, and dynamite personalities. It may take a little longer, but we think it is worth the wait.

    Inquiries about upcoming Pine Shadows litters are always welcomed. It is our goal to provide you and your family with a top notch hunter and companion. We feel its personality and natural abilities are what make it an excellent hunter and pet. We do require a deposit to secure a pup for your family. The $500 deposit is completely refundable if for any reason a pup from Pine Shadows is not selected.

    All our puppies are fully guaranteed (see the PINE SHADOWS Guarantee policy). Pine Shadows pups are all AKC registered with no restrictions.

From time to time people tell me, Lighten up, it is just a dog, or That is a lot of money for just a dog. They do not understand the distance traveled, time spent, or costs involved for Just a dog. Some of my proudest moments have come about with just a dog. Many hours have passed with my only company being  Just a dog, and not once have I felt slighted. Some of my saddest moments were brought about by Just a dog. In those days of darkness, the gentle touch of Just a dog provides comfort and purpose to overcome the day.  If you, too, think it is  Just a dog, you will probably understand phrases like Just a friend, Just a sunrise, or Just a promise. Just a dog brings into my life the very essence of friendship, trust, and pure unbridled joy. Just a dog brings out the compassion and patience that makes me a better person. Because of Just a dog I will rise early, take long walks and look longingly to the future.  For me and folks like me, it is not Just a dog. It is an embodiment of all the hopes and dreams of the future, the fond memories of the past, and the pure joy of the moment. Just a dog brings out what is good in me and diverts my thoughts away from myself and the worries of the day. I hope that someday people can understand it is not Just a dog. It is the thing that gives me humanity and keeps me from being Just a man or woman.  So the next time you hear the phrase Just a dog, smile, because they Just Do not Understand.
