Oreille was established in 1989, in North Carolina while I was serving in the United States Navy as a Hospital Corpsman Petty Officer specializing in Histotechnology. Oreille is part of the name of my first AKC registered dog, my Sommeil Oreille Languir, an adorable red and white Basset Hound. Oreille is French and means "ear". In my endeavor into Bassets I choose Oreille to be my kennel prefix and it has been ever since. I later purchased my first Pointer from Carol Jenkins of Winzlot and that would be my beginning into the breed. Oreille is pronounced -ORAY. The Oreille prefix is attached to every Basset (only 1 litter - 7 pups) and Pointer that I have bred with a few exceptions (i.e. some pups from co-bred litters). Our litters have produced only a modest amount Pointer puppies over a 27 year period in the breed. All sires are dams are generally AKC Champions and OFA'd for hips with only a few exceptions. We believe in QUALITY not quantity. I am a member in good standing of The American Pointer Club, Inc as well as a lifetime member. Oreille is also an AKC Breeder of Merit with many Champions to our credit. Oreille Pointers live all over the United States and in other countries as well. Watch for our Pointers in conformation rings, obedience rings, rally rings, agility rings and fields near you. In 1991 after completing my Navy career, I returned home to Tucson, Arizona then on to Phoenix to further my Histology career. In 1996 after receiving a great opportunity we moved west (more west) to Southern California and resided in Riverside County for over 9 years until the winter of 2005, after which point we (along with my mother) headed to the Ozarks (in the Branson, Missouri area). The southwest kept calling us back and in late 2013 we made our way back to Southern California to the Morongo Basin.
You can find Oreille and our Pointers at AKC, UKC, International (IABCA) shows and many other registry's shows too. We enjoy showing and we are interested in promoting our breed. Helayne is also am a licensed UKC conformation judge.
In 2016 Oreille was introduced to the world of showing purebred Somali cats. We have started a journey on that as well.
We invite you to come and visit us and our dogs and cats and see.....................
