"We are so pleased with our boy, Lucky! He is so smart, loving, and a blessing to our family. We have had Lucky to obedience classes and even the trainers can't believe how smart and friendly he is. I would highly recommend Your Kennel as a breeder - you have great dogs!"
Hello Ruth and Cephas!
Just wanted to say thank you again for our puppy, Charlie (Shamrock.) He is the love of our life, and is truly a blessing in our home! I am constantly getting compliments on how well mannered dog we have. For only being 4 months old, he is so smart, and has been easy to train. He gets along with everyone he meets, and loves to go to the dog park and play, swim, and run with other dogs! He's so friendly. I was really worried how he would react to my 5 year old nephew. He has cerebral palsy, and can not walk yet. So he crawls on the ground, and at first, Charlie thought he was playing with him, but then quickly learned that that is how my nephew gets around, and is now cautious, and patient with him. He really is the best dog. I was also so pleased when I first brought Charlie to his first ever vet appointment. Our vet couldn't say enough about him. She said from head to toe he's healthy, happy, and a great dog. She also said that all of that has to deal with well he was bred, which is always so great to hear, especially when choosing a breeder in the search for a puppy. We couldn't be happier with our choice to go with your Kennel, and wouldn't trade our Charlie for the world! Thanks again
