Shakira's Angus de Uno

Was awarded Therapy Dog of the Year!

We are ever so proud of him and his mama Joy!



Shakira is  a small, family kennel devoted to our dogs. It is truly a family affair, with my husband ,sons and I, all being an integral part of raising our dogs. We strive for not just beautiful dogs but healthy, long-lived, intelligent companions! We have puppies in homes that are therapy dogs ,others are working on obedience, agility & tracking !

We are much more concerned with finding life-long ,loving homes for our puppies than to have our puppies in a 'show' home. A dog is a life long commitment, showing is such a small part of that lifetime, that we will place those that have the references and shown to be committed homes at the top of our lists rather than a novice home that is 'interested' in showing.  Showing is a fun extra, just the icing ,not the cake!

We have chosen to import our dogs or have dogs from imported stock very simply because we love the style. Very much like Levis and Wranglers, some people love one -others couldn't be without the other!  There are differences from American bred compared to their European counterparts but it is all a matter of personal preference, there is no right or wrong as long as the dogs meet the standard of the breeds. All of our imported dogs are out of champion lines. We do show some of our dogs on a limited basis as we can due to job constraints and expenses.

No matter where you get your puppy , please always do your research by going to the breeds' parent club site, ask lots of questions and make sure that the parents have the appropriate health checks for their breed . There is never a reason why copies of this documentation cannot be shared. A pretty price tag does not guarantee a healthy, happy dog but buying a lesser dog at a savings will many times come at a greater cost.

 If I can help at all please feel free to contact me.
