About Haley

We've had Haley since she was 10 weeks old. She is our soul dog. She grew up boating, camping and hiking with us. We didn't spay her because we had intention to breed her. Instead of breeding her, we got a puppy (Gabby) when Haley was 6. Almost 12 now, she is slowing down. She has arthritis in her spine and leg. Despite that, she hangs well with all dogs, even placing herself right in the middle while playing ball. She still enjoys easy-paced short walks. Haley is a very balanced dog and maintains a calm and confident attitude under all circumstances. We typically present her first to meet and greet dogs to set a calm tone for the visit. Haley is an intact female and is still going through heat cycles. He last cycle was in November 2017. We anticipate she will either come in heat in May 2018 or stop cycling this year due to her age.

About Gabby

We've had Gabby since she was 10 weeks old. Haley, age 6 at the time, welcomed her like her own. Gabby has a zest for life and is a medium energy dog. She is an equal play partner with high energy dogs and then settles down when play is over. Gabby is exceptionally affectionate and attentive and her feelings are delicate. She has separation anxiety which we've been able to calm through a variety of techniques. Gabby is an intact female. She comes from agility champion bloodlines and we did not spay her because we wanted to leave the option open to breed her. Gabby came in heat last in October 2017 and we anticipate her to cycle again in April 2018.
