WHAT IS A “BREEDER”?

I Am A Breeder

My food receipts for a family of seven and my dog food bills match. My water bill has doubled. My electric has tripled. It is I, a breeder, who when my fridge quit, saved the dog meds and let the food go bad. My feet find the way to the kennel before I have even grabbed a cup of coffee in the morning and the kennel is my last stop before bed. While my friends are on a cruise to the Bahamas and my family meets for Christmas, I am home delivering puppies. I haven’t had a real vacation in seven years, but maybe soon. All plans are made around heat dates, whelp dates and vet dates. I shower and 10 minutes later my grandkids say I smell like a dog. My clothes are all stained with fecal matter, urine, afterbirth or bleach. I have to remember to clean my shoes before church. Most of my friends breed dogs. Who else can you call at 3 a.m. for support? Who else has the experience I sometimes need, the med I sometimes need, or just an uplifting word I sometimes need ?

Who else would understand how it feels to have invested hours and hours and hours in a weak puppy to lose it? Or the joy in investing hours in one that lives? I have slept on the floor beside a litter until the crucial two weeks have passed. I have learned to be proficient at micro-chipping, vaccinations, sub q fluids, bottle feeding and tube feeding. My vet knows me by first name. The vet knows my children. The vet now knows my grandchildren. My vet knows it was I who added on the wing to the vet clinic.

I am a breeder

It is to me that 63 days takes on new meaning still excited by every new life. It is I who delivers all my pups, towels and heat lamps on ready, happiness and sadness sometimes intermingled. Even though it increases my work load, I look forward to the 10-day stage when eyes open, and puppies begin to emerge from the helplessness of newborns. Puppy breath, a first bark, and a heart for exploration. I am not uneducated, unemployable, illiterate or lazy as some animal-rights folks would imply of breeders. I am a conscientious lover of animals and I have found my niche.

I am a breeder

And although I feel no shame, there is a part of me that feels the need to hide from powers that could come to invade my home and take my dogs …maybe for finding a mild infraction, a leaf in the water dish? A kennel not yet cleaned for the day? A rash I am home treating? I tell my children and grandchildren to hush, do not tell others we are dog breeders, and I wonder when did breeding puppies go into the same secret place as criminal activity?I am a breeder and I am not cruel, dumb, uncaring or criminal. I am not raking in money while sitting on my butt. Every penny I make I earn through blood, sweat and tears. My greatest joy is a healthy puppy and a wonderful home. The cards of thanks and the pictures of my puppy with its new family is the fringe benefits of my efforts. I am an animal lover, nurse, midwife, heavy laborer, customer service representative, and marketer.

AND I am a breeder

I got my little mini schnauzer puppy here a few weeks ago. She was in great health (our vet confirmed) and fun temperament. The process was smooth, fast, and complete - with documentation. I would recommend a puppy from here. Thank you Whistle Hill!

We adopted our puppy about four months ago. She is a mini bernedoodle. When inquiring about her John and his wife were very responsive and honest. Our puppy was the runt of the litter and the last available. It looked like she might have problems with her vision so they had her eyes checked by their vet and was cleared. It was nice knowing they took that extra step and waited to put her up for adoption until knowing she was healthy. Since she was so small they carried her around and gave her a lot of love and attention which shows with how cuddly she is. She is smaller then the weight range but that is to be expected since she is a runt.I put my deposit down and picked her up three days later. I brought her to my vet in the next couple days and she was completely healthy. It was nice going to picking her up they gave us great directions and it was a cute farm.Also it might be a rare occurrence but she came almost completely potty trained since the puppies would wait to go to the bathroom until they went in the sunroom (where they were when they are newborns).She is a great addition to our family and we are very happy with Whistle Hill Puppies through the process.

My family and I got a miniature schnauzer in 2011, his birth name was Jeremy but we named him Max. We were so happy with the service we received from Whistle Hill. We were so blessed to have our furr baby for 9 wonderful years, he gave us so much joy. Sadly we lost Max on October 19, 2020. Thank you.

If you are thinking about adopting a puppy definitely get one from Whistle Hill. They provided me and my family with the best customer service and the most beautiful dog ever! 10/10

The Zook's were amazing to do business with. Before even meeting our beautiful Pomsky pup, I felt confident. They sent food with him, as well as a piece of fabric with his family's scent on it to help him transition. This is my first pet ever and I feel so blessed and honored to have gotten him from Whistle Hill. They took care of me in ways I wouldn't have thought of being a first time pet owner. I heard of them through word of mouth because I was looking around for a Pomsky. Some time in the future I will be getting another Pomsky and I will for sure go through Whistle Hill Puppies.
