We no longer allow visitors to our Farm due to the increased amount of animals & dogs that have been stolen in our area and for liability insurance purposes. We will meet with you at a local prearranged place to allow you to meet a pet that you have shown interest in if the pet does not have a deposit already placed on it by another person. Puppies must be at least 6 weeks old for Maltese before we will arrange to meet with you. We do not hold any puppy without a deposit. We also do not accept deposits without an established pick up date (on/after wean date) at time of deposit. Deposits are non-refundable and all sales are final!
"5 star Great folks! Very knowledgeable and take time to talk with you and help explain to us novices...healthy and great looking animals..hope to meet with them again in the future!"
"Awesome great people! They take the time to teach you and they know and love their animals. Our Aussie Silas is a great addition to our family. When I need another puppy I'll be calling them again."
"They are the nicest people and breeders you will ever meet! They truly care about their dogs and what homes they go to. Our dog derby is so well mannered and smart."
"We named our little male Aussie “Rusty”, and he is not so little any more! He is super smart and a really special dog. We just love him to pieces! He has been to Puppy Socialization classes and will graduate this Saturday from Basic Obedience. He is a great addition—our 9 year old Jack Russel Terrier enjoys playing with him. He has brought new life to our family!...At 4.5 months he is over 25lbs.....Thanks for your help with the crate! Suddenly our little Rusty turned into Big Rusty! We found a large crate with double doors and pad at our local pet food store and ordered the cover on Amazon as you suggested.
You are certainly welcome to use those comments on your web site! We are planning to start him in pre-agility soon, although I am pretty sure it is not recommended that they start jumping until nearly 18 months. We have some jumps already set up with the bars on the ground, and he likes “going over”. My point in telling you this is that as he advances in obedience and agility, I will get back in touch with more testimonials. He is a rock star in our dog obedience class!
We are certainly having fun with him! We don’t use a dish to feed him. He eats some of his food in food toys which require him to work for it and the rest he gets as rewards for obedience games. Now our Jack Russell wants to work for her food, too. House training has been pretty easy, partly because he is so smart and also we have a dog door on the porch. He just goes out when he needs to. We maybe had a total of 4 or 5 accidents from day 1. He seems very happy here!
Many thanks for an outstanding dog!"
