Our lives revolve around dogs.  We breed, show, train, live with and love our dogs.  We feel fortunate to have shared our lives with several wonderful breeds over the years.  Currently our beloved French Bulldogs and congenial Cardigan Welsh Corgis fill our lives and our hearts. 

The challenges of breeding are rewarded by the laughter and joy each of our dogs brings to us every day. We are happy to share our love, our experience, and occasionally our puppies, with other like-minded “dog people”.

Our breeding program is limited to a few litters of French Bulldogs per year. Each breeding is carefully planned for health, temperament and type in order to produce sound, athletic puppies for ourselves and for select show and companion homes. All pet quality puppies are sold on limited registration with spay/neuter contracts. We welcome visitors, and are happy to answer breed questions by phone or email. We do not ship.

Please note: the dogs pictured on our website are our own. They are not available for sale. Inquiries about current or future litters are welcome. If you are interested in being considered for one of our puppies, we will be happy to send you an application.

We love showing our dogs and having them win.  Nevertheless, this quote from an unknown but very knowledgeable person embodies our philosophy:

"Let's not measure a breeders success by the amount of winning their dogs do in the show ring, but by the number of dogs that stay with the family that purchased them as a pup and that die in the arms of that same family 14 years later.  In that case, we have three winners, the breeder, the family and most importantly, the dog"

Additionally we are proud to offer boarding services to our friends and neighbors in the Bryson City/Swain County community as well as to the many visitors to this special area.
