To adopt a puppy can be a seamless and joyful experience.

I hope to have the opportunity to unite you with a new puppy/dog. I have arranged for hundreds of puppies to find their new homes over the last number of years. All the puppies have been under my direct care, allowing me to know each puppy’s individual temperaments, personalities and matching them up with the appropriate adopter.

It’s a privilege for me to share their companionship however brief, and a delight to witness them move onto their permanent loving homes. I love them all! I ask anyone who is considering adopting a dog/puppy from me to be in the same mind/heart and will treasure and respect their new friend’s life.

I have come to know and understand with greater depth, the nature of the dog through my own personal experience of having cared for many puppies and dogs over the years as well as having read many books and articles. Through expanded awareness I love and respect the dog more deeply as I see and connect with these magnificent animals.

I’m inviting you to not only open your home to a dog/puppy in need but to have an open heart and mind as to the possibilities of what the relationship/ connection with your new best friend might have to offer.

Please contact me if you have interest in a specific puppy that is posted and or if you are looking for a dog/puppy that I might help you locate.

"Dogs have given us their absolute all. We are the center of their Universe. We are the focus of their love, faith and trust. They serve us in return for scraps. It is without a doubt the best deal man has ever made"
