about us

AR Kennel and  Wirehaired Pointing Griffons

We are a Midwest family, in the heart of Iowa, that loves the outdoors and passionate about all the ventures our life provides!.  It is a family event in developing the Perfect Dog for our family and for the field. We have a strong desire to share this with others. Kory is an avid hunter and is a current pro staff for Banded, Avery Outdoors and Avery Sporting Dog.  He has a pursuit for perfection and our Kennel's goal is to produce Intelligent dogs that are extremely versatile to earn the title of Supreme Gun Dog. Kamo has been with me on my journey to learn the field and be apart of the hunt. Kory and I have 3 daughters (Kyah 7, Kynzie 6, and Kalihan 6) and just welcomed our fourth and final - our Son Krew. We realize the importance of calm and loving dogs in the home. There is not a day that goes by that Kamo, Keeper, and Famke does not bless our family. We have been so fortunate to be able to share that with other families. We often get asked the question, is having a Griff too good to be true? Without question it will blow your mind. Able to be the most intelligent companion, loving personality, and a passion for the outdoors. Kamo, Famke and the pups have all proved to us that the Griff is something to be proud of. We are honored to be a part of your journey!

 Autumn Rush's Kamo is one of the matriarch’s of our Kennel.  She was our first Griffon and she has absolutely won our hearts on this amazing Breed.  She helped us welcome home our third little girl, is calm in the duck blind, retrieves to hand and is steady on point.  She has a series of titles that spread from hunting to obedience. She has one of the most amazing noses we have seen in a gundog and we have watched her pass that along to her pups. Although she has given us a reason to trust her, she proves it daily in and out of the field.  At 1 year old she earned a NAVHDA NA prize 1 112.  I have had the honor of working with Kamo and her multiple obedience AKC titles.  She has a great coat and is well mannered in our home and where ever we take her.  We have had other breeds a part of our family, and never knew the actual benefit of living with a low allergenic dog that rarely sheds and barks. We were blessed with her first litter in 2017 with 16 puppies. Kamo was an exceptional mother. We enjoyed the process along with her and treated each pup as our own. We are very hands on with each puppy and we take our role beyond the breeding process. We value our relationships with our forever families for each pup. There is not a week that goes by that we don’t have the opportunity to talk with or hear from a family.

This year we brought Famke VD Wielervelden all the way from Belgium - bringing a taste of the great European Griffs to Autumn Rush. This Best of Breed and multi-Champion has been such a beautiful addition to our our family and we are anxious to announce her 4th litter, first with us born April 25th, 2019. This was an epic pairing to International Multi-Champion Igor VD Wielervelden. Famke’s list of credentials and titles are located below, but has shown her strengths both in the home and in the field. Her tenderness as a nurturing mother and her kick in the field fits perfectly into the Autumn Rush mission.

We had the best experience getting our puppy from Kory and Sarah (Autumn Rush)! We are first time puppy owners and they made it easy and gave us guidance through the entire process. Our puppy is now over a year old and we couldn’t be happier!
