We have never been anything but open with people who are interested in our pups. Breeding is something we have a love for. However, many of those in the shelter and rescue world do not love us. Personally, prior to the slander and defamation of character spewed out by some of these peope and the HSUS, we did not have any issue with the work they do, in fact, we appreciate it when they actually do something helpful for animals (which we are finding is seldom in the case of HSUS). Take a look for yourself: https://www.humanewatch.org. Follow this link to uncover more of HSUS true intentions.

There is a place for both rescue work and breeding. Good breeders do not populate shelters, pups from Got Game Bird Dogs do not populate shelters. We breed dogs for specific purposes. Shelter dogs are almost never a combination of papered, well bred, well treated animals. Papers are important for the sake of knowing what kind of dog you are getting, not for being flashy (explained because I know someone will have an opion of that component). If a person wants to rescue a dog from the shelter as their pet, that is fine, that is great, go do that. But what if you want a hunting dog with lines showing proven trainability? Or more critically, what if you want a dog that is safe to be used as a therapy or service dog for children, the elderly, or the disabled? Some of our pups are being trained and used as such with their new owners. What if you have your very own young children or grand children this pet is going to be in contact with? If any of those are you, you need to be careful, responsible, and thorough in knowing what pet you are putting in the path of such people. Certain breeds are not good for such purposes. Abused dogs and/or poorly socialized dogs can harm kids unexpectedly without warning. Food for thought.

Here is news coverage we had in an effort to be transparent and show that we do not belong on this awful list. We reached out and allowed these reporters came out to show our dogs are well cared for. https://www.ksnt.com/news/local-news/manhattan-breeder-pushes-back-after-being-named-among-worst-in-the-us/2005158623

Here are documents below showing we are in good standing with KDA, AKC, and our local head of facility inspections. They have actually met us and seen our dogs, pups, and kennel. Do we have dings against us during inspection? Sometimes. Are these things related to abuse, neglect, or endangerment? NEVER. Our dogs NEVER go without shelter. And if our dogs were seen without water in an isolated moment, it was because they had just run out….fat, healthy, active little pups who had just run out are not neglected animals. If they were, they would not be fat, healthy, or active. Pieces of information were taken out of context by the HSUS to provide justification in thier minds for tearing down a good breeder. And we have NO RESPECT for that. And on another note, yes, we advertise on puppyfind. This is where a lot of good people look for pups for sale. Are there scammers and puppy mills who also use puppyfind for their own agendas? Probably. Just like there are on craigslist, facebook, outlook email accounts, cell phone accounts, etc, etc, etc. We have a disclaimer to warn about scams and are transparent to show we are no mill.

Here’s what people who have actually seen our animals and our kennel have to say…HSUS has never contacted us or been to our kennel.

If we are putting on a show for everyone, it’s been going on since 1984 when I was 4 years old.  That is when my dad bought me my first love, “Casey.”  Casey was a beautiful chocolate Lab.  He was my best friend, went everywhere with me, and my childhood friends all, to this day, remember him.  We breed quality Labrador’s (Golden’s and Doodles) with the idea in mind that each pup could be some little girl’s (or boys) best friend.

When Casey passed away in 1996, I spent considerable time looking for someone to fill that void.  Jonny (pictured at top as a puppy) was my next love. Jonny “Jondog” finished high school with me, went to college with me, was there when I got my first teaching job, and stood at the door to greet me when I brought home my son from the hospital.  The pictures of both Casey and Jondog hang in our shop to remind us why we do what we do.
