This chapter of our lives began in 2009 when we decided on a move to southwest Michigan with our two boys. We were blessed to find a beautiful 108-acre farm in the middle of a great community where many of our family friends already lived. Over the past decade, we have been able to transform a once antiquated cattle farm into a well-managed row crop operation that produces corn, soybeans, and seed corn. Although the farm keeps our family busy, we could not be more grateful for the opportunity to live in such a place.
In seeking to share the blessings we had been given, our family prayerfully considered adoption for the longest time. Finally, after many years of preparation and multiple trips to Ukraine, we brought our beautiful daughter to America to join our family for good in 2019. Since that time, our family has again grown with the addition of a daughter-in-law and a brand-new granddaughter which we are obviously very proud of! More recently, we have welcomed a good friend from Ukraine to stay with us until the situation is resolved and he can return to the university.
Our introduction to the world of dog breeding began soon after we moved to the farm when we purchased several German Shepherds. After raising several wonderful litters, we eventually made the tough decision to rehome our adult dogs since we could not reasonably commit enough time to continue our breeding program plus manage all our other responsibilities.
Ultimately, we decided to use our experience to help other local breeders find homes for their puppies. Over several years, we were able to form good relationships with a few reputable breeders in our area and had the privilege of providing many families with great quality pets. Throughout the entire process we meet so many great people from all over the country and we remain grateful for each family that choose to welcome one of our puppies into their home!
Today we continue to provide our customers with a select few breeds of puppies from local breeders that we trust, focusing primarily breeds such as Yorkshire Terriers, Toy Poodles, Pomeranians, and Miniature Goldendoodles.
More recently, we made the choice to once again began a breeding program of our own! After years of experience and lots of customer feedback, we chose two breeds that we felt would be the best fit for our program, the Toy Poodle and Yorkshire Terrier. Our hope is to build a successful breeding program in the coming years and to continue providing our clients with exceptional service and support.
Thank you to all our past and future clients! To you we are grateful.
