It is our goal as a breeder to produce puppies who are sound in both body and mind, while maintaining the outstanding
temperament each of their respective breeds are so well known for.  We have carefully chosen each of our Purebred
Parents to ensure they are from quality, healthy lines with consistent beauty.  We have the parents of every puppy on
the premises.  
We stand behind every puppy we raise and expect to be a resource to their new owner, both before and after the puppy
goes to it's new home.  Whether your experience with the dogs goes back many years, or if this is your first puppy, we
are glad to help you with any questions you might have.     
Thankfully, our careful breeding produces healthy, well adjusted puppies.  However, we offer a one year written health
warranty on each of our puppies to ensure their new owner knows how serious we are about standing behind our
breeding.   
Why an F1 Hybrid dog?
Years ago people who wanted a dog had two choices. Get a purebred or a mutt. In the last 10 years  there has been the
introduction of a third option. Intentional Hybrids. People who decide upon Intentional Hybrids such as the  Maltipoo,
Poochon (Bichonpoo) or Maltichon have done so for many reasons.  A high percentage of the people choose a hybrid
for the reasons that are outlined below.  

A hybrid puppy has two purebred parents of different breeds.  This intentional mix of breeds allows us to have the
predictability of the purebred, while maintaining the genetic diversity of a mixed breed dog.  A hybrid puppy's
characteristics will fall within the range of the two breeds his parents are from.   All of our  puppies are first generation
(F1) crosses.  The F1 hybrid is the healthiest cross possible due to “hybrid vigor” or genetic diversity.  We carefully
select each purebred parent for the characteristics that would result in puppies with the most desirable pet qualities.  The
hybrids are bred just to be a perfect pet for you


What are the advantages of having a purebred dog?
Purebreds provide predictability with respect to size, color, coats, temperament and traits. If you want a friendly dog or
an aloof dog, a high-energy dog or a low-energy dog, a small dog or a large dog, a dog with lots of fur or a dog with
very short fur, you can choose a purebred that tends to have those characteristics.  The parents produce offspring that
are totally predictable.......they will be just like their parents.

Disadvantages
Over 300 genetic health defects have been documented in purebred dogs, the incidence of defects is extremely high.     
Reasons for this include:

Breeding dogs to a detailed standard of appearance. Breeding to some standard is how breeds are developed in the first
place, but eventually it results in loss of genetic diversity, which leads to problems with health and vigor.  The only way
to get dogs to produce true to type (produce puppies that look like themselves) is to inbreed.  Health and temperament
can be sacrificed for a certain type of hair, eyes, etc.
A limited and closed gene pool. Without the introduction of new and unrelated genes, in the long term all living creatures
suffer "loss of genetic diversity," which inevitably leads to weaker animals with health problems.   Even when trying to
breed unrelated dogs, there will be a few common ancestors in almost every pedigree.
Breeding the same champion dogs over and over. This floods the breed not only with the same sets of good genes, but
also with the same sets of bad genetics. But when the same few dogs are bred repeatedly, as is done with the most
successful show dogs, their particular defective genes become more common throughout the breed. Then the chances
are much greater that two dogs with the SAME defective gene will get bred together -- and the defect gets expressed.
Breeding for unnatural builds. Breeds with short faces (such as Pugs and Shih Tzus)) are sweet dogs, but they can't
breathe normally and are prone to many health disorders. Breeds with long bodies (such as Dachshunds) are prone to
crippling back problems and paralysis.
According to AKC statistics, there is a 40% mortality rate for purebred dogs in puppy hood.


What are the advantages to a Mutt?
Because their genes are usually unrelated, the chances are good that the parents of a mutt puppy did not both have the
same defective genes. It is the pairing up of the same defective genes that cause some of the worst health problems seen
in most purebred dogs. Most mutt dogs have good genetic diversity, which tends to promote overall health and vigor.

Disadvantages
A mutt isn't usually intentional. It is almost unheard of for a mutt dog to have even one parent who has been tested for
any genetic disorder. With a mutt, you have to put your faith in his genetic diversity, rather than in medical testing and
breed specific traits.

If you get a mutt which looks like a combination of two breeds, does not assure that only those two breeds created the
puppy or, for that matter, those breeds were involved at all. A mutt could have many many other combinations of breeds
to create the dog. Thus, you might be able to have a hint as to the temperament of the dog, you also might have a hint on
how large or small the dog will be, or what type of fur the dog will have, but you will never know for sure until the dog
has fully matured.  You must be willing to accept whatever size, coat type and shedding your puppy has, as all their
characteristics won't won't be evident until they are adults.

A mutt all too frequently has not had the benefit of a good start in life. Proper medical care, proper socialization and
breeder knowledge can be missing in an unintentional breeding.

What is a Designer Dog? A "designer" dog is a cross between two
purebred dogs aka f1 Hybrid Dog. A purebred dog is one that has been bred
over many generations to breed true. Meaning each puppy that is born looks
and has the same temperament and characteristics as one another. In most
cases a standard is written and breeders must follow this written standard.  
When one breeds purebred dogs great care must be taken to insure the lines
to not become too thin.
F1 + Purebred-A = F1b Hybrid Dog
F1 + F1  = F2 Hybrid Dog
F1 + F1b = F2b Hybrid Dog
F2 + F2 = F3 Hybrid Dog
