Our Llewellin Setter Dams!
The Purest Llewellin's Dashing Bondhu Bloodlines Available in the World!
All  Dams and Studs are fully trained and
"Gun Dog Certified"


All our dams and studs are direct decedents from Sir. Richard Purcell Llewellin, Esq. personal bloodlines named by him as his "Dashing Bondhu" bloodline. We are only working with 100% pure "Dashing Bondhu" bloodlines imported directly from Sir. William Humphrey of England plus Machad Ambassador from Fr. James Brannon/Humphrey bloodlines from Ireland, and  Dashing Remus Bondhu a pure "Dashing Bondhu" bred male imported later from Marie Therese a Goes of Belgium. Keeping in mind that ALL these bloodlines originated from Sir. Richard Purcell Llewellin, Esq. personal kennel many years earlier, and that Fr. James Brannon and Marie Therese a Goes continued to work very closely together with Sir. Willaim Humphrey who inherited Sir. Llewellin's personal Dashing Bondhu Llewellin Setter's.

In fact, Sir. Humphrey and Fr. Brannon vacationed at each others homes many summers and Marie Therese vacationed with the Humphrey family many times and enjoyed hunting their falcons together over these Setters. Mr. & Mrs. Bloodgood of Mountain View Kennel are combining only the purest surviving "Dashing Bondhu" bloodlines available in the world WITHOUT the addition of ANY American Llewellin bloodlines in their pedigrees! 

We know that they are 100% genetically sound and other than their color and markings, they are virtually like clones in temperament and natural outstanding ability, assuring their pups will satisfy their customer's over 99% of the time.

ALL our adult Llewellin Setters are listed on our website, so our customer's will know the size of our kennel. We have the largest pure gene pool remaining in the world and because of this, we must maintain enough dogs that are required to preserve and continue a healthy genetic breeding program of Sir. Richard Llewellin's personal pure "Dashing Bondhu" Setters. No other Kennel or breeder in the World has the genetic diversity of working with 100% Humphrey and all other remaining pure "Dashing Bondhu" bloodlines. They also show 5 generation pedigrees of every dog, so you know they are 100% pure.

You don't have to be a knowledgeable breeder to recognize, first hand the many years of dedication and selective breeding that Mr. & Mrs. Michael J. Bloodgood have devoted in selecting only the very best and purest "Dashing Bondhu" Llewellin Setter bloodlines from the very best breeders left in the Setter world to preserve and continue the very best bird dogs and loving companions ever developed in the World for generations to enjoy.

We have not been able to distinguish the reproducing qualities between our Setters. Believe it or not, ALL studs and dams have produced equally well, no matter how they were bred to one another. This is a testament to the quality of Mr. Llewellin, Mr. Humphrey, Fr. Brannon, Al & Drenda King's, and our breeding program since 1996.

All our studs and dams are Gun Dog Certified "GDC" before they are used for breeding. They must  prove to an IPDBA inspector that they will hunt (search), hold point, be shot over, retrieve shot birds to hand, and will back (honor) another dog pointing to the inspector's satisfaction to receive a "GDC" official title, proving each dog is not just a brood dog. 

On a personal note, NO dogs are added to our program if any force training or electric collars are/were ever needed in their training. This assures that our pups are out of only the most "NATURAL" at pointing, "NATURAL" at retrieving, and "NATURAL" at backing (honoring) other bird dogs generation after generation. This does not mean they cannot be pro trained, but we have found that we get the best results when only natural training methods are used with pups starting at 10-15 months old. Please, ready how easily all our Setter are trained on How to Train our Dashing Bondhu Setters webpage.




The Late
GDC Dashing Blaze Bondhu
In Loving Memory!
(1996-2007)

100% Humphrey's Dashing Bondhu!
She was of the Purest Dashing Bondhu Bloodline found any where in the world! Litter mate to Dashing Chess Bondhu and Dashing Humphrey Bondhu. Her sire Dashing Ringold Bondhu was clearly the best producing pure Humphrey sire of his generation and is a major link of all Llewellin Setters who carry the Dashing Bondhu bloodlines today, including his grandsons, Hank's Ringo Bondhu and Dashing Jerry Bondhu! Just look how many times he is found in all our dogs pedigrees today!

My personal
painting of 
GDC Dashing Blaze Bondhu
painting by
Michael J. Bloodgood

Color: Orange Belton

(lightly ticked)

Above is my personal "PAINTING" of "Dashing Blaze Bondhu", a pure Dashing Bondhu Llewellin Setter I owned from a pup and trained. It is also used (faded) in our background as a dedication in her loving memory. That was her exact stance on point and is just what she looked like in her prime. We have been told by several dozen people that our painting of her looks just like their setter. Most don't mean anything when they say she looked just like their female Setter, but a few diehard FDSB people have decided to take it a step further and when ever my name comes up they attempt to discredit us personally by saying we are using a picture of someone else's dog on our website.  

The ironic thing is we lived near the Kennel for over 9 years and knew them and their Setter's very well and was very good friends with there brother Mark for 9 years who even purchased a few of my dogs. In fact, he asked me to train bird dogs for his father and brother, but I refused because I had no interest in the bigger running type English Setters.

I don't remember EVER seeing the picture before, but do agree my painting of Blaze does look like the dog in the B&W picture at first glance, but anyone without an agenda can clearly see......

#1. It is clearly a COLOR PAINTING and NOT at all a black & white photo.
#2. It is a female in the Painting and the B&W picture is clearly of a male. Or maybe they don't know how to tell the difference?
#3. Blaze was slimmer, longer bodied, and more refined, like in the painting and like most females. If the dog was a male in the painting, then he is missing something very important to a stud dog :)
#4. They both are in a field of grass, but backgrounds are very different. Example: The horizon is higher and there are NO woods or a
visible hedge row  in the color painting, but the lower horizon and woods can be seen clearly in the B&W photo.
#5. We also have many eye witnesses who personally knew Blaze and know what she looked like and EVERYONE of them recognized the painting AS BLAZE!

I was tempted to show the differences on my website and put them side buy side, or even do an over lay, to prove them as the lairs they are, but then I would have to take and use the photo and they would accuse me of copyright infringement. 

Marie says I should take it as a compliment that my painting looks like a photo, but the sadist part about it is, that someone would try and discredit us over a painting of a loving deceased dog that was simply put on our website in her loving memory. We never used her for profit and we surely could have had a website without it, but I think it shows how petty and low these people will stoop to try and discredit someone they are simply jealous of and cannot find anything else to say about. I can say they have never owned one of our great Setters and never will, I can assure you that. The fact is, they have to make up things because they cannot find anything else to discredit us with in over 47 years of us breeding gun dogs. Our good Lord knows the truth and I will leave it in his hands.

Now, about Blaze, she was our first pure 100% Humphrey Dashing Bondhu bred Llewellin Setter we ever owned and she was the most natural bird dog we had ever seen in over 35 years of owning, breeding, and even professionally training a vast number of different pointing breeds and strains of bird dogs. 

Blaze was an orange belton but appeared almost completely white with just a few light orange ticks. She started very young and was naturally steady on point and retrieving reliably at only 4 months old.  She was totally NATURAL without any force training necessary and was so outstanding that she pointed and retrieved over 200 native Kentucky Bob-white Quail and several Woodcock her first season on her own. 

Even as a pup, Blaze was so superior over our great line of German Short hair Pointers we had bred for eight generations that we completely ended their long breeding program the following year. Even though we had a long waiting list for their pups, we could no long say they were the best bird dogs. Blaze became our main bird dog and aided in training our other Llewellin Setters we tried even some older than she was at the time. 

Believe it or not, no one who hunted with her can remember Blaze ever breaking a point, losing a downed bird, missing a retrieve, dropping a bird on retrieve or not naturally backing other dogs on point. She continued year after year to amaze everyone who hunted with her with her extremely strong scenting ability, all day stamina, and beautiful high style, always pointing confidently with an 11-12 o'clock tail and head held high. 

She was so beautiful to watch coursing and methodically working a field, always keeping us in her line of sight, swinging wide in open ground and hunting close as any dog in thick cover, making her an expert at locating quail coveys and then equally well at working single birds one at a time, no matter how thick the cover became. I regret that she was never used for Ruffed Grouse, but take it from a 30 plus year Grouse hunter, she would have been awesome on them and did do awesome on hunting fall woodcock in our area.

She was extremely intelligent, naturally knowing how to back off of running birds and to swing around them to get a head of them to cut them off and pin them down between herself and the hunter.

Blaze was also the first bird dog of any breed to achieve "Gun Dog Certification" in 1996 and did it on native wild birds to lead the way in IPDBA for bird dogs. 

Unfortunately, we waited to long to try and get pure Dashing Bondhu pups out of her, but she did prove herself as an exceptional reproducer even when out-crossed twice on a very good King's Bomber III bred male that we had owned and hunted with her at the time. Even though all 21 of her pups from two litters completely satisfied their owners, none were kept by us for future breeding because of them not being of the pure Dashing Bondhu strain.

Fortunately, Blaze did have many outstanding litter mates like Dashing Chess Bondhu and Dashing Humphrey Bondhu and her Sire Dashing Ringold Bondhu had produced hundreds of outstanding dogs making it possible for us to preserve and reproduce the same quality pure Dashing Bondhu  bloodlines through several of their offspring. It is our opinion that, Mr. Llewellin's and Mr. Humphrey's 100 years of combined breeding of their personal Dashing Bondhu's are by far the most natural foot hunting gentleman's bird dogs ever developed and using Humphrey's quote, "perfected" and is the reason we dedicated in only breeding the purest of these bloodlines found today. 

Blaze passed on to the happy hunting grounds in spring 2007, but will always have a special place in our hearts and with those who knew her at our home or in the field. She blessed us and all the many friends and family that hunted over her for 11 awesome years on native wild Kentucky and Georgia Bob-White Quail. Yes, we made trips to Georgia to hunt native Georgia quail with friends there and she always did a phenomenal job at locating, pointing, and retrieving them day after day, month after month and year after year. 

Blaze will always be missed, but we are so pleased to be able to see her continue to live on through her same quality pure Dashing Bondhu bloodlines we have here at Mountain View Kennel today. Just one look at any one of our dogs pedigrees will show how much of her breeding is maintained in our dogs and you can see in her pedigree below, she is closely related to all the dogs we own today and is of the purest 100% Humphrey Dashing Bondhu bloodlines left in the world. 

It should be noted that Blaze was out of one of the most awesome Llewellin Setter litters we have ever heard of in over 35 years of breeding gun dogs. All her litter mates were OUTSTANDING NATURALS, here are named just a few of her famous litter mates Field Winner Dashing Houdini Bondhu, Dashing Humphrey Bondhu, Dashing Chess Bondhu (was bred to OLN's Hank) and Dashing Chessy Bondhu (sold to Russia). Her pedigree of all Dashing Bondhu's is a list of who's who of direct decedents from Llewellin's and Humphrey's personal kennels. 

As you will see we have done an amazing job in preserving Blaze's bloodlines through Irish Chess Bondhu and Hank's Ringo Bondhu a daughter and son of Dashing Chess Bondhu (Blaze's litter mate) are in our dogs many times.

GDC Dashing Bondhu Janie
Color: White, Chestnut, and Ticked
Janie is a beautiful, awesome, female and is a half sister to our "Dashing Bondhu Bell". She has some of the rarest Dashing Bondhu bloodlines found in the world on her dams side. She, not only has the pure Dashing Bondhu bloodlines of Humphrey and Fr. Brannon, but also has pure Dashing Bondhu bloodlines imported from Belgium in her pedigree. What makes her bloodline so rare is to find pure Dashing Bondhu bloodlines from Belgium, because like in American almost all imported Dashing Bondhu's were used to improve other lines and were out crossed and not kept 100% pure. Janie is also a small female, only about 35 pounds.

We are very excited about this female and what she adds to our family, breeding program, and to our hunting crew. She is out of our own stud "IrishKing Ashly Bondhu" and is a fine example of what he produces. She has March 2010 pups with our GDC Dashing Bondhu CountOrtho (100% pure Humphrey).

Bliss is also a small female only about 35 pounds and as beautiful a blue belton Setter could be. Pictures don't do her justice and she is the great grand daughter of OLN's Hank and Dashing Chess Bondhu (Blazes littermate)!

Odette makes it possible for Mountain View Kennel to produce Double bred Hank's Ringo Bondhu when bred to our GDC Dashing Bondhu Hank and Double bred Dashing Othoette Bondhu when bred to our GDC Dashing Bondhu Ringo. We plan to breed her to Ringo first to produce spring 2011 litter of Double bred Dashing Othoette Bondhu pups that will make a litter of 99.2% Humphrey and .8% Fr. Brannon.

GDC Dashing Bondhu Rosie

Rosie is 100% Humphrey directly from the 1960's England imports to Dr. Stephenson's kennel. Majority of ALL pure Humphrey Dashing Bondhu bloodlines were imported by Dr. Stephenson from William Humphrey's Grandson Chris Sorenson. They all go back to Llewellin's original kennel. VERY FEW of these are left in the world without any Irish or Belgium blood added. NO better bloodlines can be found in the world than the pure Humphrey's imported directly from Chris Sorison to Dr. Stephenson. 

We have plans of breeding her to GDC Dashing Bondhu Ringo who is also 100% Dr. Stephenson's imported lines from the 1960's. This will make more of these VERY rare 100% pure Humphrey Dashing Bondhu Llewellin Setters, in the fall/winter  of 2010 or spring 2012.

GDC Dashing Bondhu Chess was named after Blaze's Litter mate sister Dashing Chess Bondhu who was a phenomenal reproducer of outstanding bird dogs, no matter who the stud was. She is also the grandmother on both sides of our Chess's pedigree, making her Double bred Dashing Chess Bondhu

DB Chess is another born "Natural", beautiful tri-color heavy ticked female, with a strong instinct to please her master. Top breeding, ability, brains, bird sense, willingness to please, and high style makes her the total bird hunters dream package. She is a pleasure inside or outdoors and is a true gentleman's dog and loyal companion in or out of the field. She is also a litter mate sister to our GDC Dashing Bondhu Hank who was much the exact same.

Our Chess has proven herself not only as an awesome bird dog, but more importantly as an awesome reproducer of 100% the same. We have received outstanding reports on ALL her pups pointing live birds and retrieving solid, some as early as 11 weeks of age. Our choice pup from her first litter was GDC Dashing Bondhu Freckles and has proven to be as "Natural" as any bird dog we have ever seen.

Pointed solid and retrieved her very first live bird which was a beautiful cock pheasant without any help and made a retrieve to my hand after running into and then being lifted over a stock fence.

Lady's pedigree also carries some unique and rare pure Dashing Bondhu Llewellin Setters imported from England by Dr. Stevenson in the 1960's and are not found in our other dog's, not out of her, like Dashing Lunette Bondhu, Tallman Lady Bondhu, John's Boy Bondhu, Stephens Lady Bondhu, Nutcracker Bondhu, and Dashing Inda Bondhu, to name a few. Her unique but outstanding bloodlines assures us that her pups and grand pups, etc. will be the best quality, genetically sound, both in the field and in the home. She has proven to be one of the best dams in the field and reproducing of her generation!

It is safe to say that her double Grand sire "H/F GDC IrishKing Bondhu Ashly" was one of the most natural bird dogs ever born and produced more "natural" outstanding Llewellin Setters then any other Llewellin stud in the last 20 plus years. His most famous son was "Hall of Famed GDC Henry Prince of Pause" aka OLN's "Hank", star of the #1 OLN's sporting show "Hunting with Hank" who was just one of hundreds of OUTSTANDING natural bird dogs that he produced. So even though Hank is not in Lady's pedigree, Hank's sire and bloodlines are through out it all.
 


The Great legend 
H/F GDC IrishKing Bondhu Ashly

Lady's Grandsire on both sides and the sire of OLN's "Hank"
So you can see, Lady was a product of generations of careful selection of only breeding the very best to the very best. 

We are very pleased to be able have had Lady as part of our breeding program, and hunting family.

Lady's sire and dam were outstanding dogs in every way and her pedigree shows that she was only a few generations from the last Llewellin Setter's imported directly from Humphrey's and Fr. Brannon's personal kennel's in England and Ireland. In fact, she has the original imported bloodlines closer than most other dogs we have own. We preserved her bloodline in her amazing offspring like, GDC Dashing Bondhu Ashly and GDC Dashing Bondhu Lady.


Sire: IrishKing Bondhu Paul
(Double Bred Machad Ambassador) 

Dam: Dashing Lunette Bondhu
