Feeding time at Andy's!! So far the grey speckled female has been spoken for, but there are still 6 pups left that will need a good, loving home when they are old enough. If you have room in your home to give one of these cuties a good home, start thinking about which one you'd like to adopt!


And one more.....


More puppy pics....


Here are some new pictures of the puppies at Andy's. They're growing, and are as cute as can be. He only has one that is spoken for already, so there are 6 more that will need good homes as soon as they are old enough to leave their mother.

[01/21/16]   Attention any of our local fencers planning to fence the Wang tournament in Dallas the first week in April!!!!!

Gigi and the pups are doing well! Here's an updated pic.....


The puppies are here!! We won't be able to touch them for awhile until they get older, but at least they're here!!


Puppies at Andy's!! Gigi, the latest rescue, will be having 8 puppies sometime between Christmas and New Years. Gigi is a bull terrior mix, and they have no idea what the dad was. Gigi is very sweet, calm, and loving.
