Our Dogs...

We are a small hobby breeder.

We dont have a lot of dogs or operate a kennel.

Our dogs live in our home as a member of our family, getting lots of attention and love.

 

Our dogs are health screened & genetically tested to ensure we are not producing puppies with any known

or preventable health issues. 

 

Our dogs exhibit calm, smart & attentive temperaments worthy of passing on.

~ Annabelle ~

This little beauty came to our lives when she was just 8 weeks old. I still remember the excitement of her joining our family and counting the days until she was ready to come home. She had to be flown to us and when we arrived at the airport to pick her up we didn't really know what to expect. When the attendant passed her crate to us and we opened the door, we all instantly fell in love. 

Since then she has nuzzled her way into our beds and hearts. She is such a funny, playful, and lovable pooch. No matter what we are doing, she is happy to be by our side. Whether we are on a long hike, puttering in the yard or relaxing on the couch, she is right there following our queue. 

She brings so much laughter and joy to our family, we simply can't imagine life without her.

~ Lilly ~

Lilly is our European gem. While researching the origins of the English Springer Spaniel, I also learned about the evolution of the breed in North America since its introduction here. I became aware that through selective breeding, we have altered the breed significantly. In fact, we have bred out many of what I find to be the most appealing traits. I also began to learn that most of Europe still has Springers that resemble the breed from hundreds of years ago. In Europe, their Springers compete in hunt and shows successfully. Their Springers have prolific ticking, long pendulous ears and a bit of a bigger stature. Here in North America, our Springers often lack any ticking, they either hunt or show but not both. That was the start of my desire to produce the English Springer Spaniel as close to its historic roots as possible. After much difficulty I was able to find a reputable breeder to work with and finally obtain a European spaniel here in Canada! It was not an easy process by any means but she was worth every bit of frustration and expense.

 

Lilly is a total sweetheart! She is easy going, laid back and fun. Everyone who meets this girl absolutely loves her.
