I love showing my dogs and I love my Miniature Pinschers! I breed according to the AKC Standard of the Miniature Pinscher and to date have produced or bred almost 50 AKC Champions. I have been involved with raising, breeding and showing dogs in AKC my entire life. I finished my first AKC Champion Yorkshire Terrier in 1979 and then 12 additional  Yorkies after that. I was involved with Old English, Poodles, an English Bulldog and some shihtzus also in the Conformation and Obedience rings. But for the last 20 years, my joy and breed of choice has only been  the Miniature Pinscher.  I enjoy this breed immensely as they are alert, active, zesty, loyal and interesting. Never a dull moment with their silly antics! What more could you ask for?  This is a wonderful blend of passion and a hobby to me.  I strive to produce sound, happy, healthy and beautiful specimens of the breed.  Pet or show, my dogs continue to be competitive in the ring and others enjoy their companion homes.  Occasionally, I have puppies available for pet/companion homes. The exceptional puppies are available to good show homes only.
