Dear Prospective Puppy Buyer:
I'm writing this letter because I, like you, did extensive research into the breeds of dogs that would be most appropriate for my family.
After my husband and I made the decision to expand our family of 4 to a family of 6 (by adding 2 puppies – not more kids), I began my mission to weed out the breeders from the notorious puppy mills. It was during one of my infamous "searches" that the Martin Ranch website came up, over and over and over again because, well, I did several searches! I read their website thoroughly and it was Peggy's candor that prompted me to give her a call. She and I talked extensively to work together to match the right personality of each puppy to that of both of my children, my husband and quite frankly, me! I honestly feel that only a breeder would have known her puppies as Peggy did and does. She could not have been more on target in her selection of Riley and Max for us! They are thriving and adapting beautifully and that comes from spending the appropriate amount of time with their mother in an open and protective environment and being lovingly cared for. When I read how Peggy and her crew "...gently roll the puppies over on their backs to let them know that had a loving boss..." I knew she genuinely cared for her puppies (I even thought about signing up for that job)!
Walking about the ranch and seeing the dams and sires, as well as the puppies, we immediately knew these dogs were at home and would comfortably adjust to our home. It is the Martin's dedication to the care of their puppies and grown dogs that set them apart from not only the puppy mills but other breeders as well. I encourage you to do your own research, talk to Peggy and then plan a trip to Fredericksburg to pick up your puppy. It's worth the drive and it's a great little getaway!
Tim and Kim, Noah and Lana – Max and Riley too!
