Thank you, once again, for our adorable and much loved Teddy Bear puppy, Chablis.
Thank you also for your total openness and complete honesty from our very first phone call. This continues to this day even when I call with a question of any nature. You are a wealth of knowledge!
When we took Chablis in for her first visit to our vet, he was so impressed with her quality and her health. He commented several times as to what an overall healthy puppy she is.
When I shared with you in our first phone visit, the fear and anxiety that I had purchasing out of town, sight unseen, because of a tragic experience we had with a breeder, (a puppy that we had less than a year due to defects and health issues), you relieved my mind and it wasn't "all talk and salesmanship". It was and is total truth.
When Chablis arrived, with her baby blanket you provided, she was exactly as you promised AND even more! Your professionalism, your knowledge, your quality of puppies, just everything combined to make for a good puppy bonding is second to none, Rene'.
I wish that you would share my name and number to ANY prospective puppy purchaser for a reference and recommendation. I can't say enough on your behalf.
Marsha and Bud Howlett (and Chablis too!)
We are so overjoyed and feel totally blessed to have purchased our precious little TeddyBear from you. It's been two weeks since we picked "Wrigley" up. His presence in our lives has changed our family dynamics TOTALLY. We love our little fluffy bundle more than you can imagine, and he gives great love in return.
As you know, I did extensive research for over a year to find the "perfect" family pet. When I finally decided on the TeddyBear hybrid, it was because of the mix, temperament, adult size, physical strengths, and recommendations from those who already own these dogs. I did call your clients also and they did nothing but rave about you Rene' and their fantastic dogs! My next step was to research top breeders in the US. Needless to say, there are many breeders of the Shichon/Zuchon/Bichtzu/TeddyBear mix. I immediately "weeded out" those who bred other types of dogs besides the TeddyBears; I feel concentration on just one mix makes for a much healthier line of dogs.
Secondly, I contacted many breeders who could not assure me their breeder dogs were purebreds, i.e., purebred Shitzu (mom/dad) and purebred Bichon Frise (mom/dad), or exactly how many times they were bred in a year. Happily, you shared that you only breed your bitches once a year, and that both parents are purebreds. After visiting you, seeing these beautiful healthy dogs and watching their behavior, I was sold hook, line, and sinker. Your personal interaction with each puppy made me realize how devoted you are to your TeddyBears, how much you enjoy raising them and, thus, the reason for their happy, outgoing, and loving nature. I've seen many photos of "so-called" TeddyBears, and they look nothing like my Wrigley. He is everything you promised. He has beautiful perfect coloring, outgoing personality with EVERYBODY, not a barker/yapper, shockingly intelligent and learns very quickly, and doesn't shed AT ALL (meaning I've never pulled out one hair yet by brushing which I do twice daily). My father is extremely allergic to dog hair/dander, and he can actually hold Wrigley up to his face with absolutely no reaction which is amazing. What I love most though is that he actually senses people's "feelings". Twice since we've had him, I have cried and he just wimpers to be close to me and won't leave until he must think I'm okay. During this time, he'll paw and lick my face as if to assure me everything will be fine. In some ways, he's more human than dog!
Our first visit to the vet confirmed what a beautiful, happy and healthy puppy we had. His tail wagged the entire duration of our visit. The vet wrote that he was in great shape and it quickly passed through the office how cute Wrigley was so staff members just had to "drop in" to see him! I have to agree - he's gorgeous!
Rene' our thanks to you for giving us the best gift of our lives, our precious little Wrigley. We are extremely happy with him, and especially you for always being available to us! Some put all their stock in having to own a purebred, which is fine, but they should definitely consider one of your TeddyBears if they want what I call the "perfect pet"! God bless you Rene'. I'm available for referral anytime to anyone!
