If you are interested in purchasing a puppy, please request a purchase application by emailing me at [email protected]. I request and check references before agreeing to sell a puppy. I will take back any puppy which I have bred at any time during its life if the owner cannot keep it for any reason.
I have owned or been owned by chow chows since 1990, when I acquired my first chow from a breeder in the Netherlands. I was living in Germany at the time for business reasons. Dixie v.d. Beerse Haj was the wonderful black rough girl that hooked me on chows. The weekend after Dixie acquired her International Championship, I moved back to the States. Shortly thereafter I acquired Dallas (Bearfoot's Dallas Moonshadow--a black rough male) as a companion for Dixie. Their pictures are on the Rainbow Bridge page.
I bought my first show potential puppy, Chester, in 2001. We learned about AKC dog shows and how to show in conformation together. Three years later, I acquired Nikki who finished her championship easily with me handling her for the most part, and then went on to win Best Chow Chow at the Westminster Kennel Club show in 2006, multiple group placements and two all-breed Best in Shows with professional handling by Michael Brantley and Holly Leftwich. With Nikki's success, I really became hooked on showing!
I currently have a small group of chows, both roughs and smooths, which I exhibit in conformation, barn hunt, and rally obedience. The older ones enjoy an easy retired life at home. I very occasionally will breed a litter of puppies. Please see the pictures on the other pages of this site.
