Welcome to the Foster Home!


We are Joseph and Kristie Foster and we raise Wirehaired Pointing Griffons. In the fall of 2012, we decided to start looking for a dog that we could train as a retriever for waterfowl as well as a pointer for upland hunting. Our research led to the WPG and we haven't looked back since. We found Mavis down in Idaho and had her shipped north. We fell in love immediately. Not only has she exceeded our hunting expectations, she also fits perfectly into our family of five.
