    Teagan is from a some what reputable breeder.

    Mitsu who passed away in September is a dog that I privately rescued and decided to keep because she had a serious heart condition and Mitsu and Tyler fell in love with each other.

    Future Boerboel pup who is not born yet, but should be born this summer is coming from a reputable breeder from Ontario.

    After I get a Boerboel pup if the right terrier shows up in a rescue or a re home situation I might be all for it. Tyler would love another Pit bull or bully cross, but I don't see that happening any time soon. But we will see. He really meshes well with those Bullies.

    Ace was from a farmer in IA that had a couple of working aussies and he would have a litter every few years.
    Dutchess was a rehome of CL in CO.
    Sierra was a rescue from KS, her parents were left outside to breed at will and a girl stepped in to get them all into the collie rescue and offered us to take Sierra.
    Roxy was from a guy in AR that had working pyrs and had bought a girl for his sheep and she was preg when he got her.
    Gunner was from a byb in CO.
    Kiley is from a decent breeder in IA.
    Courtney is a rescue that was pulled from Canada and brought back to OK. She was kept in OK for a few years and then we took her home with us.

    Our next puppy is coming from a reputable breeder and our next puppy after him will either be from a reputable breeder or a puppy from our boy if he's as great as we imagine him to be <3

    Crossbone - Rescue 600 miles away!

    living with my parents -
    Jack - local rescue
    Mini - BYB

    recently passed-
    Micki (Mini's brother) - BYB
    Kyra (Mini's pup) - litter planned by my parents/BYB


    ETA - No next dog for a very long time. We're very happy with just Crossbone at this point. But I like young adult rescues.

    Tell him to consider a Deckers RT or a Patterdale, they share a lot of gamey pit bull traits.

    Byron my dobe came from a breeder on the east side of cleveland (think anyway, my mom drove) and she showed the parents and if I remember correctly health tested. I was just in pup crazy mode so thats all I cared. They were an accidental litter though and they were getting out of dobes and into weimaraners or I would have already gotten another dog through them! Byron has been great temperment and health wise and I could not ask for more. I think he is thirteen this year,I have to dig up his papers. Maybe twelve.

    Gizmo was from quarter horse congress but her parents showed to. I think busy B was her lines if I remember right? the lady I boarded with picked her up when she was showing her horse and she never could train her to do ANYTHING so my mom traded her for my horse:( Now I have a fifteen yr old cogri who just now has a recall......sometimes.

    Blitz was one one of many pets that a girl on a horse forum was going through. showed chaz the pic and we drove to VA in one day to get him. Got home at 3am.

    Future dogs?

    I plan to have another dobe when everyone passes and it will be from a breeder. Chaz loves corgis so I figure he will eventually get another one, we have a large corgi show here and he has talked to a few breeders. Dogs seem to just find us to though so who knows. If we have kids I will have a lab!

    Now, I believe you've been lacking in the photo department...

    Earl - GSD, was a BYB dog. Bought him out of the newspaper when I was in middle school

    Peco - Rescue. He was brought up from Texas by another family. After having him about 4 days they decided they didn't want him and were afraid that their kids would pick up hookworms from him, so gave him to a rescue. We picked him up a few days later.


    Hudson - ES. He is a breeder dog

    I'm not sure where my next dog will be from at this point (or what breed). I have/had some hope it'd be a Merlin puppy, but another dog in the next few years isn't particularly likely.

    Charlotte: Was a stray dog that ran into the open door of a friend's house that my husband was staying at in Nashville, TN. My husband got attached and kept her.

    Ma'ii: A former ranch dog in NY that we found on craigslist and adopted.

    In the future, it's up in the air really. I would like to atleast once in my life get a puppy from a breeder, but I firmly believe the best dogs are those that find you.

    Future dogs-not sure. I'd like a lab from a reputable breeder, but DH wants a whippet. We'd both like a retired racing greyhound. I can't rule out rescue though too. It really depends on where we are in life at the time.

    I bought Middie from my neighbors who are terrible dog owners. He's mellowed out and become a really well-behaved adult, but he was a monster when I got him. :p

    Future dogs will ideally be rescues, or perhaps even a breeder holdback. I don't want to get a puppy. I doubt I'll find what I want in rescue, though, as I'm going to be very specific about coat type.

    My boyfriend got Frag from a byb.

    Bailey (rehomed to my parents) was adopted from a shelter I worked at.

    Sir came from animal control.

    Recon came from a reputable breeder.

    I will probably never adopt another dog from a rescue/animal shelter again. I will likely only go to more reputable breeders because of the negative experiences I've had with adopting dogs, personally. It's just easier for me to start with a puppy with a knowing of what it will turn out to be. :)

    Dogs that we had when I was younger:
    Sam: BYB Lab. Passed now.
    Abby: Planned BYB litter by my parents out of Sam ^. Kept as a hunting prospect. Was actually a very skilled rabbit dog. Passed due to a heart condition.
    Oliver: DalmationxGSPxPit? Found on one of our farms, left by migrant workers. Passed.
    Jack: Cocker Spaniel, Rehomed to my sister who was showing in 4H by a friend who's son was done with dog showing. Came from a breeder, but don't know if it was reputable.

    Dogs I have now:
    Harlow: Boxer. BYB before I knew any better.
    Rider: ACDxBC. HeRD of WY rescue in Wyoming.

    Future dogs:
    Futurepuppy is an ACD from a reputable breeder planned for 2014. Josh is planning to get a Griffon sometime in the next 4-6 years from a local, reputable breeder. I will most likely always have a Bullie or a Boxer, always an ACD, and we will always have a bird dog for DH.
