Is Onpoint Vizslas in Ontario still in business?

Our wonderful dogs came from Onpoint. Their website was taken down and replaced by a single page.

Thanks

I actually phoned today and got the answering machine. Their web site says “site under construction”. I’m hoping for a call back as I am looking for a new dog after several years. My previous V was an Onpoint dog.

Hi there. I am also in Ontario and asked my breeder about Onpoint - she has not heard anything about them for a while, so I'm not sure what the status is. If you are looking for an Ontario breeder, please let me know if I can help in anyway. I've had a V from Ferngold Vizslas and my current pup is from Lienroc Vizslas (sire is a Ferngold).

So I just returned yesterday from Onpoint and met John to pick up my new English Pointer. He is retiring after 35 years, and a fellow will be taking over but not in the same location. He said he will get the info up on a new website soon. Still going to be called Onpoint. I didn’t get another Vizsla but boy is my new pup a good guy. Very similar to my V in appearance and personality except for the colour.

Boss Kennels has some every nice English pointers, I've had my eye on for the last year. Shine was just to young for a second puppy, and I have 5- 6 dogs at my house on any given day. It was 8 dogs a week ago (only 2 are mine), so I'm improving.
It's probably been around 35 years, since I had an English pointer in the house that was mine.

Not all those who wander are lost.

Life is just a leap of faith.
Spread your arms and hold your breath and always trust your cape.

Two things define you. Your patience when you have nothing, and your attitude when you have everything.

I had to check them out on the AKC website. They are VERY similar, with the Pointer not being so velcro/needy. How can that not be a good thing?

I believe they still are around. I found this posted 21 days ago: https://www.kijiji.ca/v-dogs-puppies...0500?undefined

After being home with Chunky for 4 days now... he is very much like a V... just finding his place here in his new home.

I spoke to John Reid in person picking up CHunky last weekend... he’s retiring as of December 16th. The new owner is in the process of taking things over.

He’s still very much liking to be around me and the family. Mainly myself, as I take him to work every day and for a good 45 to 60 minute run after work.

But yes, he’s somewhat not as needy so far. As I sit on the bed writing this, he’s sleeping over on the floor. My V would be right beside me, lol.
