My Name is Iris, I first bred this wonderful breed at the age of 21 years. I showed and bred miniatures then fell in love with the standards, both the size and temprement all those years ago. I believe the companionship and company they offer no other breed. is comparable. My dogs are a part of my life and live and share my home with me. Puppies are raised indoors and have contact with children, adults ( both sweet and cranky) and other dogs. When they leave home they have been fed lots of different textures and been exposed to noise and different environments.
