We are fully dedicated to preserving the integrity of the

Our dogs enjoy conformation shows, some obedience

All of our dogs are registered with the American Kennel Club
and must pass their health and genetic clearances in order
to make it into our breeding program. Health
clearances include OFA hips and elbows, hearts cleared via
echocardiogram by a board certified veterinary cardiologist,
eyes cleared from inheritable eye disorders by a board
certified veterinary ophthalmologist (AVCO). We also
test for other inheritable disorders that include EIC, HNPK
and the dilute gene.
