Showroom Mascot

I was born in Allendale Michigan to a breeder named Aaron Silver on October 28, 2014. My Mom was a black and white Border Collie and my Dad was a Blue Merle like me. One day my owner Rich and his father in law came to see me and my Mom and Dad. Nice guy that Rich, a few treats, a little exchange of money and I was taking my first trip in a car, to Northville Michigan. Ever since then I have become an expert level Frisbee catcher, a hell of a Deer chaser and a squirrels intimidator. If you have a little time to play or a lot of action to deliver then I’m your man, ready for action. I come to the office on Mondays and Friday or by special request. PS: I like herding little kids (it’s in my family heritage you know) but I have never bitten anyone or shown an ugly face to another dog. Border Collies just want to have fun.



Showroom Mascot

Marcella is a small Feist mix that is timid and curious. She was born in the southern US, and Jen adopted her here in Michigan. She had a rough life before being adopted, so she takes a little while to warm up to people. Once she does, though, she will be your best friend. She loves to run and play, and then sleep! Be sure to say hello when you visit.



Showroom Mascot

Libby is a Doxon /Basset Hound mix who is figuring out how the world works. Everything is new and exciting and all the smells must be smelled! She is sweet and snuggly and a wee bit noisy, but she loves people. She will wriggle her way into your heart when you stop by to see us.




Originally from Cadillac MI, Courtney moved downriver to be with her sweetheart. Her happiness is adventure, soaking up the sun, kayaking, and bonfires with family and friends.
