2021 Breeding Plans

Gracie X Binck

Unfortunately, No Puppies

Gracie was artificially inseminated, but no pregnancy resulted. We are very disappointed.


This is an exciting breeding. Binck is a handsome boy with excellent conformation and is an active hunter in the Netherlands. Gracie is sweet girl and typical Drent living the good life in Southern California. Both of Gracie’s parents were born in the Netherlands and accomplished hunters. Both Binck and Gracie have wonderful temperaments and should produce beautiful, smart, and affectionate puppies with good household manners. Drents are an active breed that need appropriate exercise, training and supervision, especially as puppies and young adults. 

The California Drents’ lineage is distinct from other breeding lines in America. This is an advantage for genetic diversity and potential future breeders.

Gracie should come into heat in August 2021 with puppies ready to go home in early-December 2021. Of course, the timing is entirely up to Gracie. We will keep this page updated. 

Litter approved by Drentsche Patrijshond Club of North America
