And We Have Two…

January 31st, 2012 · 2 Comments · Latest News & Litters

We have two beautiful girls still available from Belle’s 2011 litter (photo gallery). Everyone else is spoken for but please don’t rule these two girls out.

First, we have our little girl Twinky. Twinky in a dark brindle with a cute white spot on her chest. If you remember, Twinky was our little girl who insisted on nursing upside down. She likes to do things her way. Can we say BOUVIER?! Twinky is a very sweet girl who loves to snuggle, play and just be downright cute. She does not have much work drive so if you want a great pet and are not looking to do obedience trials, rally or agility, Twinky may be the perfect girl for you.

Second, we have Gingersnap who is anything but small. Gingersnap is a big, bold red fawn female with great confirmation. If you are looking to show or do some sort of performance trails, this is the puppy for you. Gingersnap has a big, blocky head and is the largest puppy in the litter at this point. This girl would be great with a family that has had prior Bouvier experience. Don’t let this girl pass you by if you want a spectacular Bouvier to show.

If you are interested please contact us via our website or call us at 610-285-4682. We love talking about our Bouviers.


Bouvier in the Spotlight: Grady

October 18th, 2011 · 7 Comments · Bouvier in the Spotlight

Before I started dating Paul, I had never even heard of a Bouvier. His parents’ 9 month-old Bouvier rescue named Calvin reminded me of some sort of Jim Henson puppet. And one that enjoyed hopping around and eating flip flops at that. Coming from a Lab household, I had a hard time accepting that this crazy fluffball was an actual dog!

About a year after Paul and I got married, I finally acquiesced to his pleas for a dog. Although I was hesitant to bring another Calvin (who, to his credit, has settled down a great deal in the past four years) into my life, Bouviers were the only dogs that seemed to fit all of our criteria: big, non-shedding, hypoallergenic, easy to train, etc. Some of our friends and family thought we were crazy to get a dog, and we heard more than once, “Don’t get a puppy! Just have a baby. They’re way easier.” Boy am I glad we did not listen to them!

Although we briefly considered a rescue like Calvin, we ultimately admitted that we really weren’t ready to take on a dog with “baggage,” and figured that for our first dog, we should probably start with a blank canvas. I researched a few different breeders in the area, but as soon as I stumbled upon the Mohr Bouviers website, I knew they were different. I spent an hour reading every single article (including their forthright and honest “Raising a Litter- Our Philosophy”), checking every single update, and gushing over every single picture in the picture galleries. I sent an email just to express my interest, but certainly did not expect to receive a phone call from Linda just a few days later!

Linda told us that we’d be put on a waiting list, but that they’d likely be having another litter in the Fall and could always check back then. As a teacher, I knew the summer would be the best time for us to bring home a new puppy, but I trusted that things would work out the way they were supposed to. Sure enough, we worked our way up the waiting list, and when I finally arrived at my first Puppy Play Date to meet the new litter, Linda informed me that we would not only be getting a puppy, but a little boy at that (which made Paul very happy!).

I am continually amazed at Linda and Karl’s ability to analyze the personalities of both puppies and humans. They knew that sensitive “Chandler” would be the perfect fit for our child-free (for now) household. They knew that he just needed an opportunity to come out of his shell, and that for whatever reason, Paul and I would be the ones to give him that opportunity. It seems silly to me now that I actually cried on the way home from one of our visits because I didn’t think that the newly re-named Grady liked me. If only I had known then that I would have to step over him at least eight times every time I cooked dinner because he is always at my feet!

I cannot even begin to express what a blessing Grady has been to our lives. His personality has truly blossomed into one that is incredibly outgoing and playful, while still maintaining his sweet and sensitive nature. When I open his crate door at 5:15 in the morning, the first thing he wants to do is crawl right into my lap to cuddle (and he no longer fits as well as he did a few months ago!). Sometimes it is a downright struggle to get him out the door for his walk! Leaving him every morning still breaks my heart, but pulling in the driveway and seeing his sweet little head resting on the windowsill puts it back together again. No matter how stressful my day was, his cheerful exuberance never ceases to lift my spirits.

I could probably fill a book with funny Grady stories, from the time he built himself a little “fort” out of fallen branches in the front yard, to the time he got into my knitting bag and redecorated the living room with yarn. He also loves to jump in the car and explore new places! Just this morning I took him to a local arboretum where he took off running and leaping over logs and streams. At one point he got running so fast that his little legs wiped out from under him and he barrel-rolled right into some branches. Before I could even ask, “Are you ok?” he stood up, covered in leaves, with a huge smile on his face, almost as if to say, “That was AWESOME!”

Needless to say, we could not even imagine our lives without Grady. Thanks to Karl and Linda and all of their encouragement and support, our little family is complete (for now!). We look forward to watching him grow along with our family and becoming the stately gentleman we know he will be. For now, we are just enjoying every entertaining moment of puppyhood.


Available Bouvier Puppy: Reagan

September 22nd, 2011 · No Comments · Latest News & Litters

Update, 9/28/11: Reagan has a new family!

Reagan is a 10 month old red fawn female with natural ears. That is her physical description but what is so absolutely wonderful about Reagan is how sweet this little girl is. She ABSOLUTELY loves life. She bounces with joy when I come downstairs in the morning, ready to meet the new day and all that it has in store for her.

Reagan knows basic obedience. She is crate trained, completely housebroken and knows to sit and wait for her food. When out for a walk she does use an Easy Walk Harness which she responds to nicely. She is a very smart girl who would do well with an activity such as agility or fly ball. Reagan loves to please which makes training a breeze.

We would love to find Reagan a home that will offer this wonderful Bouvier lots of play time, exercise and love her just the way she is. I can honestly say we will miss this little girl when she goes to her new home. She has found a very special place in our hearts.

If you are interested in Reagan you can contact us at 610-285-4682 or email us through our website.

New Litter Announcement – Lola 2011

May 18th, 2011 · 7 Comments · Latest News & Litters

Lola decided early Wednesday morning (5/11/11) that she was ready to introduce us to her latest, sweet puppies! Which meant Karl and I had to scramble to get ready quickly since she decided to go early! So started our exciting somewhat nail biting Wednesday.

I am pleased to announce that we ended our day with a very proud and tired Lola with three little girls and two boys by her side. At this point it looks like we have one fawn female, one fawn male and the other three are brindles.

Thursday morning brought their first road trip down to visit Dr. Rossi at North Penn Animal Hospital. After a good once over the puppies left with their new Bouvier tails.

We will keep updating our website with pictures and videos as they babies grow. For now they are sleeping, eating and snuggling with Mom. But we know that will not last long. Before long they will be exploring the whelping box and then onto the living room.

Update 8/7/11 – All the puppies have been spoken for.  We’d like to thank those families whom have welcomed our puppies into their homes!
