Freiheit Kennels ~ History

Anne Cullen, Freiheit Kennels, Chagrin Falls, Ohio

I have been involved with purebred dogs and horses since childhood in Ohio. I would conduct neighborhood "dog and horse shows" with my best friend Eve. My Cocker Spaniel "Buzzy", and my American Saddlebred, "Copper" were the stars of our shows!

Throughout high school and college I have always owned dogs and horses. I showed American Saddlebreds in Equitation and Saddle Seat, Thoroughbreds in Hunter-Jumper competition and dogs in Obedience.

After college I moved to Chicago, and worked for The First National Bank of Chicago. I moved back to the Cleveland, Ohio area in the early 1980's and I became involved with German Shorthaired Pointers and in the '90's, Pointers.

GSP, Pointer, puppy, puppies, AKC, east OhioI have owned, bred, shown and also participated in field activities with my dogs under my Freiheit Kennel name and also have co-bred with Paladen Pointers & GSPs, of Riverside, California.

I currently reside on the east side of Cleveland in the country with several English-style bred Pointers and German Shorthaired Pointers.

Annie Tormey, Pointer Puppies
If you're alone, I'll be your shadow.
If you want to cry, I'll be your shoulder.
If you want a hug, I'll be your pillow.
If you need to be happy, I'll be your smile.
But anytime you need a friend, I'll just be me.

somebody else's dog around.
