Great Companions

Miniature American Shepherds




I am a small hobby breeder who whelps and raises the pups in my home.  I do not have a kennel, but have my dogs in my home with me.  Many sleep in the bed with me at night.  I will gladly take back any dog that I have produced, and thank goodness, because I screen my families, my pups are not returned.

I run a pup camera from 3 days old until 8 weeks of age.  Anyone who visits my web page can find a link to the pups and watch them grow from day to day.  I have owners and viewers alike who get addicted to watching the babies as they mature and turn into pups and develop their personalities.

Please do not ask to vist my dogs or pups until the pups are 6 weeks of age or older.  After six weeks, I will allow people to come and meet the pups.  I will gladly let you meet the dam, and the sire, if he lives with me.

I do health testing on my dams and sires and use health tested sires when using a boy from another breeder.  I do not ship my pups, but have owners that fly from Puerto Rico, Michigan and NY to pick up their pups.  Owners have driven from from DE, VA, NC, SC, GA, and TX to pick up their pups.

I am the Recording Secretary for MASCUSA, Parent Club for the breed, and do everything I can to promote the breed and educate owners as much as possible.  I love to correspond and talk with prospective owners and educate them on the breed.  

If you are looking for a quality breeder who truly wishes to improve the breed, then I am the breeder for you. If you are looking for a bargain, you will not find one listed with Great Companions.  My goal is produce sound, healthy, offspring, building better structure and temperament than the generations that came before.  I microchip all my pups with a pre-paid registration for the owners.  No pup ever leaves here without being chipped.  I can rest assured that any dog that is lost or stolen can be traced back to me if found, because every chip I purchase is recorded by the company that I purchase from.

It is important that you as a prospective owner know about the breed and are willing to learn more about training your pup.  My pup owners love their babies, never put them outside alone, and never tie them out in the yard.  They become part of their families, sleep with them and usually go everywhere with their owners.

If you wish to know more about me or my pups, please ask.  Feel free to contact me, anytime.  Email is always the best way to reach me.

The Great Companions family all wish you a wonderful day!
