About Us

Health is the top priority in our breeding program. We screen for the appropriate traits before breeding, and we are very proud of our stock. We are State of Missouri and USDA licensed dog breeders, and we are in good standing with the American Kennel Club (AKC), and the American Pet Registry, Inc. (APRI).   Many of our dogs have champions in their bloodlines.

Our dogs are kept in a state-of-the-art indoor facility, with the option of going outside whenever they please. Our expecting dams are kept indoors our new puppy “nursery.” Our dogs are provided with 24-hour around-the-clock care, and they are exercised once a day in one of the 9 large outdoor fenced areas. We also have a photography studio where we take all of our wonderful puppy pictures that you see on our website.

We have an indoor puppy play ground, which we use to conduct our “Puppy Kindergarten”. Our puppies that are 6 weeks or older get to spend 2 hours a day in “Puppy Kindergarten”, which is taught by our professional dog trainer who is part of our staff. The puppies are started with their potty and leash training, and simple commands. But most of all they start getting very “spoiled by us“. That way when our clients adopt one of our puppies they are very socialized.

It is important to us that your pup be loved and treated as a member of your family. We take great pride in what we do, and we have worked very hard to raise only the highest quality pups possible. Potential buyers need to realize the responsibility of caring for a pup involves providing a safe, clean, healthy and loving home. Each pup needs to be fed a proper diet and needs to be held and played with daily.

Our puppies all come with a written health guarantee, vet check, current vaccinations, worming schedule and health certificate.

We will be happy to arrange for the safe shipping of your new Boston Terrier, Shih Tzu, French Bulldog, Frenchton, Yorkshire Terrier or Silky Terrier to the airport nearest you.
