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

All our studs are direct decedents from Richard Purcell Llewellin, Esq. personal bloodlines known as his Dashing Bondhu bloodline. We are working with pure Dashing Bondhu bloodlines mainly imported directly from Mr. Humphrey and grandson Cris Sorenson of England with a small amount from Fr. Brannon of Ireland, and from a pure Humphrey male imported later from Belgium. Please keep in mind that they ALL originated from Richard Purcell Llewellin, Esq. personal kennel years earlier, and that Fr. Brannon and the Belgium breeder continued to work very closely with Mr. William Humphrey, who personally inherited all of Mr. Llewellin's Dashing Bondhu Setters in 1925 and bred them until his passing in 1963 and made 41 foot hunting Field Champions.

Mountain View Kennel is combining the purest Dashing Bondhu bloodlines available in the world WITHOUT the addition of ANY American Llewellin Setter bloodlines what so ever! We have tried for years to locate any more pure Dashing Bondhu bloodlines anywhere in the world and they represent all the remaining pure lines Dashing Bondhu left in the world. 

ALL our adult Llewellin Setters are shown on our website, so our customer's will know the size of our kennel. Some may think we have a big kennel. We maintain just enough of these wonderful Setters that are required to preserve and continue a healthy genetic breeding program of these OUTSTANDING, but rare  bloodline in a pure form. We also have NOTHING to hide and show 5 generation pedigrees of every dog so you can see they are pure without any of the American bloodlines. 

You don't have to be a knowledgeable dog breeder to see in their pedigrees first hand the many years of dedication and selective breeding of only selecting the very best Setters with the very purest bloodlines to continue to reproduce the very best natural foot hunting companion Setters ever developed in the world generation after generation.

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, 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" offical title on their registration papers. No dogs are added if any force training or electric collars are ever needed in their training. This assures our pups are out of only the most NATURAL pointing, retrieving, and backing bird dogs generation after generation. This is why we can provide a 100% Life-Time Satisfaction Guarantee!

As expected, Count is producing OUTSTANDING offspring, litter after litter. Like Ringo, Count is 100% pure Llewellin/Humphrey imported bloodlines. Count is not only second to no other Llewellin Setter in breeding, but also made an awesome "Natural" complete bird dog at a very young age. He is producing awesome, natural, sensible pups with awesome scenting, pointing, retrieving, and backing instincts. Count is also a gentlemen's dog deluxe, indoor or out, he is reliable, loyal, companion, that has a head full of sense and knows how to use it to please his master daily. Count is also, one of the few pure Humphrey studs out of the late Dashing CountOtho Bondhu and Dashing Rosie Bondhu.

Count's pedigree shows he is only a few generations from the last Llewellin Setter's directly imported from Humphrey's personal kennel in England in the 1960's.

GDC Dashing Bondhu Hank on point Kansas Pheasant 2012 hunt (5th season)
Color: Tri-Color (White, Black, Tan, & Ticked)
Our Hank was named after his famous grand sire H/F GDC Henry Princeof Pause aka OLN's Hank and was as born NATURAL and outstanding bird dog, with very strong pointing, retrieving, backing instincts, and a super strong willingness to please that has ever been created. There is simply no better example of what a pure Dashing Bondhu Llewellin Setter is supposed to be. He was the true essence of  'Man's Best Friend" and put that in every single son and daughter he produced, regardless the dam he was bred with.

He had outstanding scenting ability, pointing single native quail 40 yards at times. Very intelligent, and pointed solid on his first live bird (native wild quail) and made a perfect double retrieve after his first point. He continued to be an outstanding re
liable bird dog and BEST FRIEND day in and day out. We could never leave Hank home, because the guys all wanted him with us. He was DOUBLE bred Dashing Chess Bondhu (Blaze's litter-mate) and is truly a credit to his exceptional breeding. Basically, being a Natural was no mistake and either are his pups. Our Hank is also proving to be an OUTSTANDING reproducer of NATURAL pointing, retrieving, and backing foot hunting bird dogs. 100% outstanding reports on all his pups so far.

Our Family Annual Hunts will never be the same without him and he will be miss by all who ever knew him, or hunted with him. Thank God we have so many amazing sons and daughters around the world, these include, Hank's Royal Flush, GDC Dashing Bondhu Babe, GDC Dashing Bondhu Miss, GDC Dashing Bondhu HanksRingo, GDC Dashing Bondhu Hank II, GDC Dashing Bondhu Lady, Dashing Bondhu Rosette, and hundreds of other OUTSTANDING family companions and natural gun dogs placed around the world.

Hank WILL BE DEEPLY MISSED and our hunts will NEVER be the same without "Ole' Reliable"! His hunting buddy since day one  GDC Dashing Bondhu Ringo will also miss him, they brought the best out of each other and loved honoring each other, not only on point, but on the retrieve as well. They were the first dogs we ever saw honor both point and the retrieve. They were very competitive, but we could tell they had a great respect for one another's ability to locate birds and do their job well.

Hank's pedigree shows he was only a few generations from the last Llewellin Setter's directly from Humphrey's and  Fr. Brannon's kennels that were imported in the 1960's and 1980's.

GDC Hank's Champ Bondhu

Color: Chestnut Belton
The pictures above do not do Champ any justice. They were taken on a hot summer day when Champ was soaking wet, making him appear much darker and sloppy looking, we will be taking new photos of him soon, so you all can see how awesome looking he truly is. He has a beautiful coat without any grooming.

Champ was out of OLN's Hank's most famous son "Dash" aka"Hank's Dashing Bondhu" the star of OLN's TV series "Upland days with Dash"and Dashing Ringet Bondhu, daughter of Dashing Ringiet Bondhu, a Grand daughter of OLN's "Hank".  Champ is one of two of Dash's ONLY sons, the other being his litter-mate "Hank's Chance Bondhu". Champ not only has some of the most famous of today's Llewellin Setters in his pedigree, he was also an amazing "Natural" individual bird dog in his own right and outstanding PROVEN reproducer of the same. 
 


Champ on a classy high style Point!

Champ is also the great grand son of "Dashing Chess Bondhu", who is the dam of "Hank's Ringo Bondhu" and our "GDC Irish Bondhu Chess" and a litter mate sister of our "GDC Dashing Blaze Bondhu", and was one of the very few females ever selected to breed to "Hank".

Like his famous grandfather "Hank" and also his famous father "Dash", Champ was the whole package in a top stud and bird dog, a combination of the best proven Dashing Bondhu bloodlines available in the world. Exceptional nose, bird sense, loads of brains, unbelievable ability, strong willingness to please, extremely good looking, a proven reproducer, and the finest example of a true gentleman's foot hunting bird dog. It's no wonder that we paid the HIGHEST PRICE we have EVER paid for any bird dog to own him and he was worth EVERY DOLLAR!

He will be missed, but we still see him in many of our other pure Dashing Bondhu Llewellin's Setters, especially his daughter GDC Dashing Bondhu DutChess. He is gone, but will not be forgotten.

Champ's pedigree shows he is only a few generations from the last Llewellin Setter's directly from Humphrey's and  Fr. Brannon's kennels that were imported in the 1960's and 1980's.

GDC IrishKing Ashly Bondhu

GDC IrishKing Ashly Bondhu
Color: Tri-Belton
I had thought nothing could equal the 100% pure Humphrey bloodlines, but knew so many people who owned dogs out of the great "Hall of Fame IrishKing Bondhu Ashly" that I had to try a Double bred dog out of him and see it for myself and boy was I glad I did, our Ashley was as good a dog as anyone could ever own. 

Our Ashly was one of the classiest bird dogs we have ever seen in the field, simply beautiful high style picture perfect points every time. He also was one of the best bred Llewellin Stud dogs in the world and our kennel was blessed to own him. He was the perfect bird dog from A-Z. He was Double
"Hall of Fame IrishKing Bondhu Ashly" bred, meaning the famous IrishKing Bondhu Ashly (OLN's Hank's sire) was his Grandsire on both sides of his pedigree. His father and mother were both out of him and his grand mothers on both side were 100% pure Humphrey Dashing Bondhu bloodlines. He was produced to be IrishKing Bondhu Ashly's replacement as his name indicated and he proved at a very young age to be just that.

It is safe to say that "Hall of fame 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 Fame Henry Prince ofPause" aka OLN's "Hank", star of the most popular OLN sporting show "Hunting with Hank" who was just one of the many OUTSTANDING natural bird dogs that he produced across this nation and around the world. We believe Hall of Fame IrishKing Bondhu Ashly was clearly the best Llewellin Setter Stud in his generation and our Ashly had done the same.

Please note that Hank's dam was Dashing Janette Bondhu, a pure 100% Humphrey bred Dashing Bondhu female and that makes our Ashly's sire and dam genetically just like OLN's Hank. 

OLN's Hank was the perfect example of what you get from crossing H/F IrishKing Bondhu Ashly with 100% Pure Humphrey females. 
 


Hall of Fame IrishKing Bondhu Ashly
Our Ashly's Grandsire on both sides and the sire of OLN's Hank!  He is also in our new stud GDC Dashing Bondhu Ashly 4 TIMES!

So you can see our Ashly was a product of generations of careful selection of only breeding the very best, most natural to the very best, most natural. It not only shows in his outstanding pedigree and outstanding reproducing records, but also in his ability in the field as an OUTSTANDING bird dog and awesome family companion! He had sired our, GDC Dashing Bondhu Janie and GDC IrishKing Bondhu Bliss and many other outstanding natural bird dogs.

He is also the sire of our new Ashly stud "GDC Dashing Bondhu Ashly" who is out of GDC IrishKing Lady Bondhu making him "QUADRUPLE BRED" H/F  IrishKing Bondhu Asley". I don't know of any other stud in the world who has more "H/F IrishKing Bondhu Ashley" blood than him nor hunts, looks, and reproduces more like him. 

GDC Dashing Bondhu Ashley is also an outstanding NATURAL bird dog and proven stud, and just like his parents, is just as much a part of our family and as nice a personality as any dog one could own. Our GDC Dashing Bondhu Ashley is proving to do the same as his sire, grandsires, and great grandsires before him.

Ashly's pedigree shows that he was only three generations from the last Llewellin Setter's imported directly from Fr. Brannon's personal kennel in  Ireland. In fact, he and our Lady have the original imported bloodlines closer than any other dogs we own.

Color: White, Chestnut, & Ticked
Our Ringo is a true "NATURAL" outstanding flashy stylish bird dog, with exceptional strong pointing, retrieving, and backing instincts. He is exceptionally birdie, has unbelievable scenting ability, is super highly intelligent, and pointed and retrieved on his first live bird "Naturally" and has consistently been an outstanding bird dog day in and day out. He is truly a credit to his exceptional breeding and was as easily trained as our Dashing Blaze Bondhu. Basically, Ringo just needed to be put where there were birds. He adjusts to all hunting conditions, cover, and terrain.  Ringo is also a true gentlemen's dog. Very loyal, sensible,  friendly, and has a strong willingness to learn from and please his master. NO better Llewellin Setter breeding can be found in the world and the best and most important part about Ringo is his outstanding  producing record of producing pups as good and Natural as he is. 

Ringo's pedigree shows that he is only a few generations from the last Llewellin Setter's imported directly from Humphrey's personal kennel's in England. He is now the only living stud out of Dashing Jerry Bondhu and Dashing Othoette Bondhu, two of the best producing pure Humphrey Dashing Bondhu Setters of recent years.

GDC Dashing Bondhu Prince
Color: Chestnut Belton
We are really excited about adding this outstanding, beautiful, outgoing, flashy, high style, young male already showing us his strong NATURAL bird dog instincts. He has been pointing ever bird he gets a chance to and pointed his first quail 40 feet off solid and made a perfect retrive to my hand on it and every bird since, without any prior training what so ever. 

Our goal was to reproducr the same quality natural bird dog as our original Blaze and Prince is a clone of her in every way except for his sex. No training needed, does it all 100% NATURAL!

He was easily "Gun Dog Certified" before being used for stud and should be a dominent reproducer of his double grandsire Dashing Jerry Bondhu (100% Humphrey) in his pups. He is very high percent (97.5%) Humphrey bred with a touch (2.5%) of Fr. Brannon's bloodlines through OLN's Hank and IrishKing Bondhu Ashly on his mothers side. His outstanding pedigree is second to none and is proof that these line-bred Dashing Bondhu Setters are the healthest and most natural bird dogs ever created 140+ years later. Prince is a full littermate brother to Dandy.

Prince's pedigree shows he is only a few generations from the last Llewellin Setter's directly imported from Humphrey's personal kennel in England in the 1960's and Fr. Brannon's Kennel in Ireland in 1988.
