one of the best things about having our own
website is it gives us the opportunity to publicly thank 
all of the people whom we are tremendously grateful to 



  • to all of the owners of the dogs we have bred..........

    thank you for providing such wonderful and loving homes for the puppies we've brought into this world.  we sleep easier at night knowing they are sleeping with you.
