What's That Doggie in the Window?

These are a few categories that our most popular breeds fit into. We carry many more breeds and mixes than what are listed. Please stop in or call today for a complete list of the puppies we currently have available.

Hypoallergenic Dogs

Poodle, Bichon Frise, Maltese and Shih Tzu

There are only four hypoallergenic dog breeds. These breeds are considered hypoallergenic because they do not shed; however, this does not mean that you will not have an allergic reaction to these dogs. There are many factors that cause allergies; coat type, dander, shedding, and saliva are only a few. Be sure you have addressed any allergy concerns before purchasing a dog.

 

There are a number of breeds that are considered low allergy. These are dogs that shed very little and may not cause the same reactions to sensitive people as shedding dogs do. Low allergy dogs typically have wiry hair, like terriers. Havanese, Yorkshire Terriers and Soft Coated Wheaton Terriers do not have wiry hair but are considered low allergy as well.

 

It is important to remember that a mixed breed is not a hypoallergenic dog. Any time two breeds are crossed there is no way to predict what attributes it will inherit from each parent. The only way to be certain that a mixed breed is hypoallergenic is if it is a cross between two or more of the four hypoallergenic breeds. If you are concerned with allergies a mixed breed may not be the best choice.

Pocket Pups

Maltese, Chihuahua, Miniature Pincher, Yorkshire Terrier, Toy Fox Terrier, Italian Greyhound, Pomeranian, Papillion and Miniature Dachshund

 

Small dogs have big personalities. They can fill your home with energy and spunk. Most small dogs are oblivious of their size and can bite off more than they can chew or try to rule the house. These little dogs can make wonderful family companions if socialized and trained properly. Petite dogs can often be fragile and are not always the best fit for every family. Take into consideration training and family needs before bringing a pocket pup into your home.

Family Friends

Beagle, Bichon Frise, Boston Terrier, Boxer, Cairn Terrier, Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, Cocker Spaniel, Golden Retriever, Havanese, Japanese Chin, Labrador Retriever, Poodle, Pug, Schnauzer, Shetland Sheepdog, Shih Tzu, Soft Coated Wheaton Terrier

 

These dogs all range in size, coat type and exercise needs. The one thing they all have in common is that they all will make a loving addition to your family. These dogs do well with children and would love to have a group to run and play with. Be sure to consider the specific needs of each breed before making the decision to bring a puppy home.
