Our Story

It all started back in June of 1996. We had raised and shown Persian cats for nearly 20 years, accumulating numerous local, regional and national honors and recognition including “Cat of the Year” and five “Breeder of the Year” awards.

 

We had always wanted to raise dogs, and when an opportunity to purchase a facility came along, we decided to go for it, and our dreams became a reality. We fulfilled that life-long dream for twelve years, until May 29, 2008. On that night, an EF-3 tornado swept across the plains with Loe Kennels in its path. A big part of our family was taken on that fateful day – a significant portion of the beloved dogs that had been the foundation of our business.

Hearts were broken, and we decided it was time to move to a quiet home in the countryside. Slowly over time, the business was rebuilt with the dogs that survived. Then and now, we are dedicated to providing happy, healthy puppies that make quality companions.

 

Puppies purchased from a professional breeder are more likely to stay in a permanent home for life, and that's something to celebrate! There are many benefits from choosing to get your dog through a professional breeder:

  • A known animal history

  • Predictability

  • Top quality health care

While Loe Kennels is no longer in the dog-showing circuit, our goal has always been to provide happy, healthy puppies for our clients to enjoy. We consider them part of the family and raise them as such and celebrate when they become part of yours! All of our puppies are wormed and vaccinated according to our veterinarian’s instructions before they leave our care. This includes a full health-check from our veterinarian, who examines all puppies before they leave. All “designer” male puppies are neutered prior to leaving. Each puppy comes with an inserted micro-chip for safety purposes, a four-generation pedigree, and photos of the puppy’s sire and dam.

So there you have it, that's our story and we're sticking to it. While you're here, check out our available puppies, and let us know if you have any questions!
