Hans - Blue Merle Boy - Sold to Randi & Nate in MN

Hans is doing great!. He is cautious of the new baby, but adjusting well and he loves to lick her toes.  If you have any clients with concerns about how the pups interact with babies/small children, you are welcome to share our photos or give them my number to answer any questions! He is such a sweetie and very sensitive!

Lobor Of Love

That's all what it is!
As mentioned earlier, this is all a Labor Of Love. Considering the many hours around the clock it takes to raise a healthy active intelligent litter of puppies, we are not in this to turn a profit. Sure there are cheaper ways of breading and raising puppies, but that is not what we set out to do. We do this for those few families that understand and appreciate our efforts.
