Why do you choose to send your puppies home with Breedsecure’s trial policies?

It is a simple fact that Pet Insurance is worthwhile for anyone that loves their pets and wants the best for them. Being caught with sudden expenses at a Vet Clinic is never good. Knowing you are covered by Breedsecure Insurance just makes good sense.

Can you tell us the story of how you began breeding?

Always since I was only knee high to a Jack rabbit, I have loved all animals. All of God’s living Creatures. My main interest for many years was breeding, raising and training horses with understanding Dog Behavior (both Hereditary and Man Made Behaviors) as my second interest. The more I worked with dogs and studied them, the more I realized I could not live without them in my life. I had become totally committed to being surrounded by their loyal devotion. Getting involved with raising the “Best of the Best” was a natural for me.

What makes you most proud of your breeding program/kennel?

I started out with raising only Registered dogs. Quite by accident I produced a couple of cross bred litters where I found the resulting puppies to be picture perfect. As a person who had worked with and for Veterinarians for years, I was aware that in a very high percentage of dogs, Cross Breeds are Healthier than Purebreds. The reason is by cross breeding, you open up the closed Genetic pools of both breeds. Thus stamping out a lot of the well known Hereditary/Congenital problems associated with many Pure Breeds. So by carefully breeding for Health and of course Temperament, my small size, cross breeds have excelled in anything asked of them from beloved Family pets to Agility to Therapy dogs.

What do you enjoy most about breeding?

Whelping puppies. An often exhausting time with little or no sleep for sometimes days, I am there for every Momma dog giving birth. It is holding the newborn life in my hands, watching a puppy suckle for the first time, the awe of the beginning of life.

Do you have one adoption story that stands out as your most memorable?

Because I also Rescue as well as raise small breed puppies, there has been so many wonderful memories created that to choose just one would be impossible. The best I can say is when adopting out adult dogs whether my own and especially Rescues, it is the joy of knowing it was a perfect match between people and dog.
