Ed was great to work with when choosing our puppy, he was very responsive, and answered all of our questions. His knowledge and experience was evident and we will definitely recommend him to friends and family.

Our family is extremely happy with our new puppy. She’s a beautiful Morkiepoo and is perfect for our family. She’s healthy, smart and even funny. We just love her. Ed made us feel welcomed, answering all our questions and concerns. Thank you for our precious little girl, Mia.

They have a wonderful staff base. Went to look at puppies and puppies and mother appeared very healthy, happy and loving. Establishment was clean and warm. Establishment had no knowledge I was coming and were very willing to meet with me immediately. There was no staging of the event. Met 3 staff members, all of which were very pleasant and easy to talk with. Very knowledgeable and mother of puppy was very affectionate and happy. Would highly recommend this Establishment!



don’t believe any of these glowing reviews there ALL made up.. horrible puppy mill should be shut down..


Laura Lefebvre

This “breeder” sold many puppies to a pet store several years ago where I purchased a Siberian husky. Not AKC registered, not tested for congenital abnormalities or even healthy. Two days after being home, she was bleeding from her nose, severely sick but I refused to give up on her. Then at only one year old, severe hip dysplasia and she could not even walk. After thousands of dollars and trips to the vet trying to save her, she succumbed to her “puppy mill” breeding and only lived for 6 years. Squaw kennels has BLOCKED me from further contacting them when I confronted them. They deny being a puppy mill but a simply google search will tell you all you need to know about their animals and who they are. A real breeder does not have 300+ dogs on their property unless it’s simply for money. Please DO NOT purchase a dog from them unless you plan to not become attached to animals and know they will not live a normal, healthy life. I miss my girl dearly.
