My husband Larry and I (Jean) live out in the country. We are row crop farmers on a large acreage nestled in Southeast Iowa. Our children are grown and all live within 15 minutes of us. One daughter only lives a quarter mile away across the field with some of our grandkids. They spend a lot of time here and of course the puppies are the center of attention. Instead of being empty nesters, now we have our four legged children and their babies. We are very family orientated, not only with our two legged children but with our four legged children. The dogs are a very big part of our everyday lives, and share everything with us, our kids and our grandkids.
When you take one of our four legged babies home with you, you will be taking one of our sweet children. They have been loved and well socialized by all of us. Our adults and puppies all go on rides in the car depending on the weather. Our puppies will have ridden in the car several times before eight weeks of age. I don’t open my car door with the dogs running loose as they’ll all pile into my car, with Scout behind the wheel. He thinks he should be the driver!
Would you like to know a little more about us and our family? I understand how buying a puppy off the Internet can be worrisome. I am free to talk with you about us and our puppies. Of course I want to know things about you and your family too. I want to protect my four legged babies just as you want to protect yourself. I want you to be comfortable with us and I want to be comfortable with you. I've had people tell me they feel like they know me, and that is one of the reasons they did buy a puppy from me. If you would like to know more, please use our Contact Us page.
