Thank you for your interest in owning a Mythen Irish Setter!

If you would like to own one of our Irish Setters please begin the process by reading our purchase agreement and filling out the questionnaire below.

We always try to find the best possible home and environment for our Irish Setters. Due to various reasons, not all applicants are a good fit and some are not selected.

Please read our purchase contract page before filling out the questionnaire below. Also, please be aware that it may take us some time to get back to you. We are very, very sorry for the delay but we receive so many questionnaires, emails and calls it is just impossible to respond to everyone. We are also on the CKC Puppy List and receive many additional inquiries from there. If we feel we might have a suitable puppy coming up we WILL be in touch, so if you need to update your contact information, please drop us a line! REST ASSURED that we do keep every inquiry in date order and once we have a confirmed pregnancy we will contact people for further information. We prefer our first contacts to be via Questionnaire and email. This gives us something to reference at a later date because there are a lot of names and information to remember!

Many of you are aware that our planned litter for 2020 was cancelled due to the pandemic. Other than geographical logistics and difficulties with travel, etc. for both breeding, picking up or shipping puppies, we just decided that would be unwise to have puppies during a pandemic. It was our opinion that their socialization would likely be inadequate and once people's lives returned to some semblance of "normal" many of the pups may react to being left alone as people returned to work with attachment issues. On top of that, our planned 2021 litter from Whimsy did not work out due to timing difficulties and Mother Nature. Her most optimum day to receive artificial insemination interfered with the civic holiday Monday in August. Semen would have to be shipped on the Thursday prior or on the Tuesday (possibly Wednesday) after, meaning we had to give it a try on the Saturday rather than waiting until at least Wednesday (possibly Thursday).

All that being said, we are definitely planning a repeat breeding in 2022 (natural instead of artificial insemination) and, fingers crossed, we are pretty confident we will be breeding Gwynnie in 2022 as well. Normally I wouldn't do 2 in one year as we do thoughtful, purposeful breeding only, so our focus is on health and quality, not quantity. This means fewer puppies are usually available. Thank you for your anticipated understanding! 

Remember, if you complete the Questionnaire you will only hear from us once we feel that a suitable puppy will be available. You are free to email us at any time if you have any further questions.
