Our next generation HHLS Llew Crew is on the horizon!

We are currently raising and evaluating several new pups and reserved a future stud
from a prior litter that are potential candidates for our breeding program.


Hickory's Point of HOPE - "Skylar"
FDSB#  1673533 (Tri-Chestnut)

Skylar was whelped and raised here at HHLS in Litter S, born 03/22/17 out of Benelli/Jack, and is a 4th generation female out of Hank from the Hunting with Hank TV show. She has an amazing prey drive and lives to be outdoors hunting, pointing critters, running and leaping effortlessly with an amazing spring in her stride all the while holding a high and lively tail. She is the sweetest, cuddliest and most loving girl with a darling personality. She is very animated, talkative and extremely responsive to your interactions with her.

Bloodlines: Bondhu


Hickory's Hunting with Shaye - "Shayla"
FDSB# 1677004 (White/Chestnut)

Shayla came to us from Mitchell's Setters in Mississippi. She is also of Dashing Bondhu lines and is a 4th generation female related to Hank from Hunting with Hank, born 09/15/17 out of Macy/Ching. For such a young pup (photo taken at 12 weeks) she has lots of birdy drive and a stylish point. She is a well-built, solid dog that is all muscle, but has a soft, gentle and submissive personality with tons of affection to give.

Bloodlines: Dashing Bondhu


Hickory's Daybreak Shelby - "Shelby"
FDSB# (pending) (Tri-color)

Shelby came to us from Daybreak Llewellins in Michigan. She is also of Bondhu lines related to Highway Dan and Awbonnie's Bull, born 12/16/17 out of Pigeon/Tyrel. Shelby is a little lover and a real sweetie, she's full of affection to give and is all tail wags, but she is also a little "go getter" with boundless energy. She's always on the go and never slows down.

Bloodlines: Bondhu

Stay tuned for Skylar, Shayla and Shelby!



Hickory's Point of Pause - "Duke"
FDSB#  1664012 (Tri-Chestnut Belton)

Duke was whelped here at HHLS in Litter P (aka Pierce), born 10/10/15 out of HOPE/Jack and is a 3rd generation male out of Hank from the Hunting with Hank TV show. He is now in his second hunting season and has figured out his purpose for being in the field. He's a medium to long range runner covering about 4-5 miles per 1 mile walked by the hunter, naturally honors and is becoming a bird finding machine.

Bloodlines: Bondhu
OFA hips: ES-9801F26M-PI
OFA eyes: pending


Hickory's Huntmore Sawyer - "Sawyer"
FDSB# 1676969 (White/Chestnut)

Sawyer came to us from Huntmore Llewellins in Kentucky, born 11/05/17. Looking at his pedigree, he is the perfect combination of our foundation dogs Duchess and Splash with many common ancestors in both the Bondhu and Blizzard bloodlines. He's got a nice point with stylish 10 o'clock tail and he is a typical goofball and happy-go-lucky male with a sweet, laid-back, gentle and loving nature. He has been really easy to train and overall has been the BEST pup, we couldn't have asked for one with a better personality.   

Bloodlines: Blizzard/Bondhu


Stay tuned for Duke and Sawyer!



Hickory's HOPE for Birds - "Benelli"
FDSB#  1625703 (Tri-Belton)

Benelli was whelped and raised here at HHLS in Litter I, born 01/21/2011 out of HOPE/Tuck. She is a 3rd generation granddaughter out of the famous TV dog Hank. Benelli is a heavily ticked tri-belton dog with lots of birdy drive and is packed with natural hunting ability. Being out of Advie Tuck and half-sister to Bristol, her pups are extremely birdy and would be any hunter's dream, a true bird finding machine!

 Duchess of Adena - "Duchess"  DECEASED

Duchess was our most experienced hunter when she came to HHLS in August of 2005. She had been a guide dog with over 250 birds shot over her and was an expert in the field by the time she had her first pups, "Litter A". She had an uncanny natural instinct for working a field, along fence lines and into the wind. Even the most inexperienced hunter couldn't miss with Duchess along because she knew exactly what she was doing. She had the sweetest gentle personality, so now her pups are not only amazing bird hunters, but have also been used as therapy dogs working with disabled children and the elderly.  FDSB / DNA / OFA / CERF Clear

 Hickory's Advie Bristol - "Bristol"  RETIRED

Bristol was our "star" hunter, named in the TOP 5 coming out of Pea Ridge Llewellin Kennels professional training. Whelped in January 2005, the daughter of Advie Tuck and a great-granddaughter of Advie High Beam from Scotland, she exudes the traditional "Advie" look. She was over-the-top enthusiastic when the blaze orange clothing would come out of the closet and never calmed down until she reached the field and ran at gazelle speed for 10 minutes. She was extremely "birdy", enthusiastic and full of energy, fast in the field, and is a natural at honoring other dog's points, and readily retrieved birds to hand. A true hunting machine!  FDSB

 Sir James of Galloway - "Jimmy Jam" RETIRED

Jimmy is the nephew of our Duchess of Adena, her littermate brother Mickey is Jimmy's sire and the family resemblance is uncanny.

Jimmy is a beautiful tri-colored male with the ability to throw tri-color and tri-chestnut pups in every litter. He has amazing instincts and is naturally birdy with a very stylish point!

 Hickory's Dash O'Splash - "Splash" DECEASED

Our first stud and mascot, Splash was absolutely one of a kind! His soft and gentle personality made everyone who met him fall instantly in love. He was a real character (sometimes even a goofball) and had a way about him that was unmatched by many! He produced many good hunters as well as a few therapy dogs that have worked with physically challenged children and the elderly.

 Sillman's Hank Boy  - "Hank" DECEASED

Hank was a first generation son of the famous "Hank" from the TV Show "Hunting with Hank" and we were very fortunate to be able to know him and even have the opportunity to hunt grouse with him on occasion. Although he was not owned by Hickory Hollow, he was the sire of a few of our early litters (Litters "C", "D" and "G"). Hank was a Chestnut Belton, a stunning image of his famous father and performed superiorly in the field as well.   FDSB / DNA / PENN HIP
