Meet Our Dog Family!
We only have a few dogs living inside our home: The Poodles Nova and Sparkles, Ziggy our German Shorthair, and last but not least, Rumour our neutered St. Bernard. Mia and Bunker live with our parents on their ranch. By only having a few dogs in our home, we can avoid having a kennel setting and feel that we are able to give each dog the attention and love they need in a one on one basis.

Yes, we do genetic health testing and screen our parent dogs for genetic diseases and disorders, via OFA and other independent labs. Our dogs are also seen by our licensed Veterinarian twice a year and cleared for breeding.
Canine genetic health testing is very important to us. and we do it to ensure that your puppy is set up for upmost health, genetically speaking. Without testing, we feel that we would be gambling with your dogs potential future health outcome and potentially hurt your family in the process if something life threatening were to come up down the road. We test all our dogs through the Orthopedic Foundation for Animals, or OFA, as well as Embark DNA, prior to breeding.

Dance the Night Away in Pleasant Valley CGC TKN VSWB TDI
21.5" at the shoulder
Mia is out of our own Stella and an outside male we used for her litter named Apollo. She is energetic with high drive and tons of energy but knows when to settle down. She knows no stranger and although she is a smaller built girl, she is fearless and ready to go. Her size, if in Europe, would make her of the Moyen variety.
Mia's favorite pastimes include chasing any and every blowing leaf in the yard. She easily gained her Canine Good Citizen (CGC) and passed her Therapy Dog Exam and Evaluation with passing colors. She holds both titles with the AKC.
Mia is a fabulously fun and spunky girl and we love that her puppies seem to inherit her love of life attitude.
Mia's Health Testing
Agape New Star Under the Moonlight CGCA CGCU TKN VSWB
21" at the shoulder
Nova, whose name means "New Star" is our spunky and charismatic girl. She is a beautiful girl with "ups" like no other. She can literally jump 4-6' high starting flat footed, all four on the ground. She is a third generation pup of ours. Nova has endless energy and our kids adore her because she is always up for a game of chase and water play.
Nova has an amazing nose on her and now has her Beginner Scent Work title. We also hope to compete in FastCAT with her. We are hopeful that she will be just like her grandmother Stella and aunt Mia, and give us incredibly smart, driven and sound babies one day.
Nova's Health Testing:
Pageantry's Agape Shoulda Put A Ring On It VHMP
expected to be around 24-25" at the shoulder
and around 45lbs
Sparkles is all what her name suggests! She is outgoing, confident, bubbly, energetic, loud, fun, adventurous and the sweetest wanna be lap dog you'll ever meet! She will be showing soon in conformation and we couldn't be more excited for her. We know she will do very well! She has excellent extension and movement, paired with gorgeous structure. She loves the water and is extremely smart and loyal. She has moderate prey drive and loves to play a good game of chase with her pack. We have high hopes of some FAST CAT, therapy, scent work, rally and eventually obedience titles in her near future, aside from conformation.
Sparkles' Health Testing- coming soon...

CaanDoRumour Has It CGC CGCA TDHN
30" at the shoulder
Rumour is our St. Bernard. No, he cannot sire any litters, nor has he ever. He is neutered and is only the "foster dad" to our puppies. He takes this role seriously and teaches the puppies all about doing life in a BIG way.
He is currently a registered Therapy Dog . Everyone who meets Rumour, absolutely love him. We often times have to check to make sure he hasn't gone missing when people leave from visiting our home because everyone threatens to steal him!
