We are located North West of the GTA in Ontario, Canada.  We moved to the country with a goal of living a sustainable lifestyle.  We save some of our own heirloom seeds, preserve goods and root cellar our harvest.

Our focus is on minimizing our lifestyle and enjoying life around the homestead with our newfoundland dogs and Chantecler chickens.  Canada's heritage breed.

We have posted that we are not taking requests for our puppy list at this time, however are still getting quite a few enquiries.  Unfortunately, this year we lost our lovely Sassenach which has caused us great grief.  It is not only an egregious blow to our breeding program, but to our hearts.  Evey, was diagnosed with pyometra and was spay in the spring, and our little Shiny has had two TPLO surgeries since December. 


We are taking at least a year off to breath and just enjoy our beautiful breed as pets.  Thank you for your interest.  I hope to see you in the future.  7/14
