Our Story...

With us you can follow your puppies from birth until you bring them home!  Come visit, take pictures and video.  Leave special blankets and toys.  You have the opportunity to imprint on your little angel as soon as you can get here.  If you live too far away to visit be thankful for facebook!  We are sure to post weekly updates and pictures and video to make you feel like you really are here.  It's amazing seeing how quickly they grow and what they learn from day to day.  You can even share the facebook postings on your wall with friends and family.

Sometimes we go months with no puppies or litters on the way because we will never have more dogs than we have room for in our home. We will never change our standards to meet demand. We will never keep dogs outside, chained or kenneled and we will never have dogs that do not share our homes and our hearts.


Our dogs are our family; not livestock!


Waiting for a puppy from us can sometimes take six months to a year because we truly are home-raising these puppies. 


We don't turn out puppies like a puppy mill does and never would want to!

People want our puppies because of our philosophy on how puppies should be brought into this world and cared for. Our philosophy is that our dogs are our family.

This is our seventh year and we have gone through many changes. We first started out to breed labradoodles and we had a couple of litters of f1’s and a couple of litters of f1b’s. We also had the idea at the time to breed Shepadoodles, not to be confused with Sheepadoodles. We wanted to breed more of a watchdog personality. We had one litter of two puppies and I loved those babies so much. Since there were only two we kept them inside with us all of the time. Mondo became Mox and has stayed in touch and also came back to get a baby sister, a labradoodle named Zo. I have received pictures of the other baby and a few messages but his name escapes me now.


Then the family that I got my poodle puppy Valentino from was going through a transitioning stage and really wanted us to take Valentino’s parents, Diesel Anando and Josie Bella so that put us in the poodle business. We raise our babies in a pack/sister wife situation and one litter Josie decided she was going to let the other little mommas help her more than normal and that was Josie's last litter. I will NEVER breed a babe just to get puppies. Our little mommas really enjoy when we have babies and if or when they decide they are over it being mommies they won't have babies any more. We found wonderful homes for the dogs we started with: Willow Rainne, Sunshine, Adonis, Jorja, Meeka and Ava. Making sure each one went to families and homes that were perfect for them. Being an in-home licensed breeder makes it very easy for me to rehome our babes because they are potty trained and live in the house like all dogs should. Also people get to know them by watching our videos.


As Valentino got older he challenged his father and he was quite a bit bigger too. They had a horrible fight one night so we found a wonderful home for Anando because he was older and on the losing end of the fight. He was always a grump with the puppies too while Valentino takes great care of them. Anyway Anando is with a great family in Iowa City who had two other poodles and they have them as therapy dogs and take them into hospitals, nursing homes and even colleges to relax students taking finals. With him gone we were no longer breeding poodles since our poodle puppy is Josie’s son. We were  lucky finding Josie a home. She is a few miles away and living with one of the sweetest couples I have ever met. They love her so much and spoil her. We have gone to visit her several times and are always welcome.


We kept an f1b puppy from Raven's and Valentino’s last litter because he was the most beautiful puppy I had ever seen in my life. LoL  His name is Rocco Baltazar and we were going to breed him to our f1 girls that are not his momma or auntie for multigens. I recently found out that I had been misinformed and their puppies would actually be f2’s, second generation. The only reason I would breed f2’s would be if I was going to keep going until you get to f4’s which are the first level of multigens. So upon learning this we let him go to friends of ours that would breed him and take wonderful care of him like we do. We are a very small operation and want to keep all of the babes we have now . One day we’ll be old people with geriatric dogs one day but the house will be filled with a lot of love.

We are a family that loves dogs and we want our puppies to have the best lives they possibly can.  Our dogs and puppies are raised in our home and loved and socialized just like our own children from day one. From the moment they are born until they find a new home, our puppies are being handled, played with and treated with special care and attention every single day.  The vast majority of the time someone is home with them making sure the pups are getting the best care possible.  


Our mission is to bring the highest pet quality F1b Labradoodle puppies into this world so we and our other dogs and our family and friends will love them into the sweetest, most lovable little angels you could hope for!
