​If you prefer to call we are probably home but often in and out of the house so much we often miss the phone.

I gave up on the answering machine. I could rarely understand the call back numbers even after listening to the message over and over so I turned it off. I can be dyslexic with numbers and between fast talkers and my poor hearing I decided its better people know I didn't get a message, because they couldn't leave one, then to assume I simply was not calling them back after a message was left. Sorry for any inconvenience!

(Please call back, if no return call. My mother has dementia and takes partial messages, I may not get for days.)




Vistors welcome by appointment only. We often have dogs out and need to know if someones expected so we can have time to put any loose dogs in the house.

Thank You for your interest! 

feel free to use the form below,Triple check your email as 1/4 of the emails bounce back when I try to write and I then have no way to contact unless there is also a phone number. You can also email directly and not use the form, or call.

I always love to take about dogs!!  

I am not good with computes so have set something up incorrectly. I am mostly only getting emails from those who have sent me emails in the past. New ones seem to be bouncing sometimes. Please call if you do not get a reply from me. So sorry for the inconvenience! 

If you have any questions that you feel you cannot find on the website or would like to get information about purchasing/adopting one of our lovely puppies, or one of our terrific rescued dogs, or cats please contact me by using the following information 

Emails are answered usually same day unless there is a computer issue (often I'm the problem and have accidentally messed something up.) (or lately we have lots of emails that the email address must have been typed a bit incorrectly that bounce back.) If you don't get a return email please try again, or call. 

Art and I work 24/7 with all the babies, rescued dogs, other critters, my Mom and Aunt moving in and trying to build them a house that I sometimes can't get to the computer. 

Please don't assume I am getting emails. Sometimes I delete them on accident, or I may have never received it.
