Please contact me if you have any questions about our dogs or puppies or
would like to be added to our waiting list.
are obviously many factors to consider when looking for a dog that is
right for you and your family. Size, temperament and energy level
are a few of these factors. TFTs are small dogs ranging from 3-1/2
to 7 pounds and/or 8.5 - 11.5 inches tall. Although small in size
they are strong and rugged. They can adapt well to apartment or
farm living. Some say that TFTs are not good with small
children. I believe that if a pup is raised with small children
and if the children are supervised with the pup, there will not be a
problem. If you put an anxious young child with an older more
"set in its ways" TFT, you may have problems. The temperament in
general is frisky, energetic and playful. These dogs are very
loyal to their owners. They need to have exercise to burn off
their energy but do not need to "run all day long" to be healthy and
happy. These dogs can live to be fifteen years old or older so it
is quite a commitment.
Many people ask about
training. This is best done with repetition and positive
reinforcement. These dogs love to please their owners and if they
see that they have made you happy, they will try to do the same thing
again. Lots of our pups have been litter box trained in their new
homes and a few have been trained to ring a bell when they need to go
I have included pictures of previous litters
of puppies on this portion of the site. I will also have a
posting if a litter is due or if there are pups available. If you
are interested in a puppy, please contact me.
Please send me information as to why you feel the breed would be a good
fit for you, if you plan to breed or show the dog, your family and
living situation and other pets in the household. I am selective
in placing the puppies because they are like children to me and I want
to see them have a happy life.
On the other
hand, please feel free to ask me any questions you may have about me
and the dogs. We want you to know that you are purchasing a dog
from a reputable breeder who is breeding quality dogs and really cares.
