I just thought I should share with you the great things our vet said about Truman last week.
He was really impressed with all the features he inspected---eyes, ears, teeth, heart etc.---and was particularly impressed by Truman's lovely equable nature. So I thought I should pass along his congratulations to you as a breeder for having produced such a fine puppy! He goes back to the vet in about a week's time for his next round of shots.
We could not have wished for a more adorable puppy; he's really something special.
Hello again. This is Debbie in Michigan. I just wanted to let you that Bronco passed his Therapy dog testing with flying colors and will soon be visiting nursing homes, children's hospitals and libraries. I can't wait for them to see what a nice boy I have. He will brighten their day for sure. Thank you again for such an amazing guy!
Tonia, This pup is AWESOME. He is so smart, so affectionate and so willing to please. He's a charm to train! Everyone who meets him are impressed with his good manners and sweet, mellow personality. He and the Cat are coming to terms, he's learning respect (our Oonagh was a rescue cat, who had been declawed!). They are now able to sleep a few feet from each other, and if River gets frisky, Oonagh hisses and River quickly finds something else to do. He had some fun with his "uncle", my son's Great Dane. They got along famously. Thank you, so much. What a wonderful Pup. Lynn
Just thought I'd send you a quick hello. It's been over a year since we bought our pup from you. She is a great dog, and a wonderful protector. She is so friendly and happy, but when a strange vehicle pulls on the farm she knows to sound vicious and bark deep. It makes us feel so incredibly safe. She's wonderful with our kids, we are so grateful to have her. Still a little in her puppy stage, but doesn't realize she's not the size of a pup at all! She's a wonderful part of our family. :)
Just got back from River's vet, he is in excellent health, received his last distemper/parvo vaccination, he will have his rabies in 2 weeks. His vet was very impressed with River's personality, his sweetness and willingness to learn. This pup is just such a pleasure. I brought him to work after his vet visit and he, once again, behaved like a gentleman. Everyone loved him. He slept in my office for a couple of hours and got to play with the neighborhood dog when he wanted to go out, for a "break". Thanks, again. The trip to Ohio, thru some of the worst winter weather, ever, was well worth it. Peace, Lynn
Our little Mitchell is growing so fast. She is the best dog we could have ever imagined. She is so sweet and loving. These pics are from her first experience at Jacksonville Beach. We have recently moved to the beach so she will get to have the beach life too:-)
Hey Tonia I had bought a puppy from you back in February from Dixie and Rambo I think it was and i was just emailing you to show you some progress. Dozer has been nothing but a blessing to our home and we love him so much well along with everyone else that meets him. He is doing great in his obedience classes and quite the character which is why he is so spoiled & definitely a great breed of dog. He turned 6 months yesterday and is about 80 pounds of solid mass lol he is gonna be a big boy i am thinking but thanks again for such a great dog we recommend you to anyone who is interested!!! He has been wonderful around other dogs as well he kinda thinks he is a dachshund and my dachshund thinks he is a saint lol its like organized chaos in my house.
he is doing great we love him so much he is growing like a weed ha ha ... he is already house broken thank god lol we are so happy with him in about six months we would like to get a female everyone down home has been wanting him no way i say haha him and caleb get along great we are looking forward to haven him a very long time and hopefully a female here soon i will keep in touch and no thank you from the bottom of our hearts heather and caleb
A great big THANKS! for our little guy. He did great on the 3 hour trip home. He actually laid in my lap the entire time--sleeping 50% of the time and just looking around the rest of the time. We made 3 potty breaks and he went potty all three times. After arriving home, he scouted the yard for a short while. We brought him in, fed him (he ate well), another potty time, then he fell asleep in his kennel (which is close by)with the door open. After a short while he got up, stepped out of the kennel, laid on the rug which is directly in front of his kennel, and fell back to sleep. I think the trip home wore him out. He has been great.
We purchased 2 of your puppies a couple of years ago. The first "Hannibal" and the second "Hagrid" were both sons of Bubba. Wanted to let you know we love them and they are both doing very well. Both very healthy and happy together. They are a wonderful breed!
Shobie and Lili are doing great. They are so funny together, where one goes the other follows. Shobie likes to swim around in the shallow part of the pond, but Lili will just stand in the water so far. When I give each of them a pig ear, Ezzie buries hers, than takes one out of either Lili or Shobie's mouth, today she tried that, and they hung on for dear life, it was so sweet, Ezzie finally gave up and dug hers up!
Thanks, Tonia, for these great puppies, I just knew I could trust you for excellent breeding stock!
She is doing great, she is very playful and such a sweetheart! I am extremly happy with her

Sorry it took so long for me to reply.. The puppy did fine he was a little scared when they brought him out but that's about it... I recvd the paper work today. It looks like everythings in order. The family really loves him to death... we decided to name him "Harley"... tonia thank you so much, its been a real pleasure doing buisness with you...
Hi. Our trip went smooth and she is having fun with the other dogs and puppies.She is an awesome puppy and thank you for holding her for us.
Just to let you know that Elton has settled in really well into life here in Florida. My other two dogs play with him and he's even doing well with the toilet training. He loves running off with clothes and ripping-up my magazines - he is a lovely little character.
Thank-you for the very helpful Purina puppy guide and thank-you so much for our lovely puppy - he is a credit to you, he is so good natured,
I just wanted to email you to let you know the puppy has ajusted well. We decided to name him Dozer. Dozer loves Preston he follows him all over the yard. He has also been really good about letting us know when he needs to go potty. He has had no accidents in the house. Ya! Well thanks again and as soon as I get some pictures I will send them your way.
The puppy is so adorable and he adapted right away to his new home I am very happy with him I appreciate everything! I will keep you updated.
She goes outside to use the bathroom 90% of the time. Right now she is sleeping under my desk. She just came back in from outside to relieve herself. She is walking on leash very well. On command she sits, goes down; and shakes a paw. She learnt on the first attempt to do these. She is very intelligent. She loves the outdoors. I am very happy with your pup. If you are breeding soon let me know and I'll get a male from you.(show quality please). Let me know because I trust you to provide excellent pups. Can't say thanks enough, May; john
HELLO: I JUST HAD TO TELL YOU THAT I TOOK BOB TO THE VET THE OTHER DAY FOR HIS BOOSTER SHOTS. THE VET SAID THAT HE WAS THE MOST WELL BEHAVED PUPPY SHE HAD EVER SEEN. I HAVE TO TELL YOU THAT HE IS SOOOO GOOD. HE'S FULLY HOUSE TRAINED. NO CHEWING. WHEN HE WANTS TO GO OUTSIDE, HE JUST KNOCKS AT THE DOOR W/ HIS PAW AND LETS US KNOW. I HAVE NEVER SEEN A 3 MONTH OLD PUPPY SO WELL BEHAVED. AND HE'S AWESOME WITH THE KIDS TOO. HE JUST LOVES CHASING THEM AROUND THE HOUSE. OH, AND HE'S A FOOTBALL FAN. HE CHASES THE BALL ACROSS THE TV SCREEN. SO WE BOUGHT HIM A FOOTBALL AND NOW IT'S HIS FAVORITE TOY. GO FIGURE. ANYWAY, I JUST WANTED TO TOUCH BASE WITH YOU AND LET YOU KNOW HOW GOOD HE HAS BEEN DOING. AND THANK YOU FOR SUCH AN AWESOME DOG. I HOPE ALL IS WELL..
We are so happy having Duke as part of our family. We love him! However, we have another small dog in the house and we think Duke needs a larger playmate. Do you have any plans for breeding again the same parents that Duke has? We love his temperament and attitude so we really would like to have to same parents.
Update: Duke is almost 10 months old. He has completed beginner and part of intermediate training. Our son, Cale, will be showing him this summer in our 4-H Dog Club. The training that Duke is having is for becoming a Therapy Dog. He loves children and the attention.
Again, THANK YOU for breeding such an amazing animal. We love him and would like another.
The Cook Family
Chloe is doing great!! she has worked her way into the hearts of our entire family. She is very playful and has proven to be our little shadow. Potty training is excellent! We are very happy. I will keep you updated! Thanks again Kris and Dave
Hey, thanks for the checkup. He is doing great. The little guy is full of energy now. Loves chasing Courtney around the living room and is just always so nice. Thanks for such a great pup. We have decided to name him Samson 'Sam'. Will send some pics soon. Thank you - Eric
Just wanted to stay in touch! Bo is doing wonderful, he started puppy preschool last saturday (3 wk long class) and is doing great. He is the youngest in his class, at 11wks last week, and is just under the size of the 12 wk mastiff! HAHA he wis wonderful, we love him so much! He is spoiled beyond belief, but is very well behaved. He sits now and goes for short walks around the neighborhood, loves the kids around our sub and has a few doggy friends! I will send you more pictures soon, but most that I have now are of him sleeping, since when he's not he wants to play! There is a female Saint that lives around the block, but her parents don't let her play with Bo, I'm not sure why but it's a bummer :( She is beautiful, rough coat.
Bo is started to shed, but it's not too bad, he loves being brushed. I think he thinks he getting pampered! He has a great personality. I'd say he is potty trained he does a little wiggle when he needs to go out, or just stops whatever he is doing completely and stares at me, it's hilarious! We are working on play biting, he is doing very well, he is finally getting along ok with his crate - for when we leave. He sleeps in our bedroom and is a good boy, it's cute because when he is ready to go to bed for the night, he will stare at us and slowly walk up the stairs and lay down. He is THE BEST addition to our family, I can't even imagine life without him now.
Tonya, Just an up-date. River continues as the most wonderful pup! He is loved by everyone. His vet said, " We couldn't wait for him to come, today! He's been a Sweetie, from day one!"
He's well-behaved in all circumstances and settings. He Wants to please. And he is ultimately a loving dog.
He looks beautiful running in the woods, spectacular actually! He loves to swim! He lives to swim. His first swim was in the Hudson River, he saw that water and took off, full speed ahead, into the water. Then he ran, chest high, up the River, he just kept running! Finally, we reached 2 Geese, with babies, they were upset! I called River and he turned to me and came back, no questions asked!!! Good Dog! Then we ran down the beach, down river. He slept the minute he hit the back seat.
Thank you for breeding such fine temperament Saints. I will definitely share your kennel's reputation with anyone asking where I found River. He is a good emissary for Saints, and your kennels
Just sending another update on Suzie. She is now just over 15 weeks old and weighs 33 pounds!! She is the hit of the neighborhood. Everyone comes to see her and pets her when we are out walking. We even have cars stop in the middle of the street to ask us about her. She is very playful but learning her limits. She can sit, stay, shake, come and knows "go potty". Her leash manners are exceptional!! She has been a true blessing and a really great addition to our family!! Thank you so much for such a wonderful puppy!!
Tonia, This dog is awesome. He loves and protects his family, already. When Henry was running down a hill, full speed ahead (the outcome didn't look good!) and Iliana and I are yelling, "Slow down!!!!" River turns and looks at Henry and steps about 3 feet in front of Henry. Henry stopped, petted River, thru his arm around his neck and kissed him. Then finished his run down the hill, slower and with less hill in front of him. River is a sight to see, exploring the woods. He is beautiful and always looks up when we whistle, about 85% of the time he comes from far distances, when we call him. And if we change direction, when he is engrossed in some doggy thing, he Always comes.
He is great with other dogs, all sizes. He loves to ride in the car. He's come to work with me a couple of days. He loves meeting people. He is a gentleman. He is protective, barking if someone ventures up the driveway. He stops barking when we Shush! him. He actually enjoys his brushing/grooming sessions, which makes the job easy and fun.
Thank you for such a fine quality temperament dog. We love him. Peace, Lynn
I got Tiny from you at the first of July last year. And Daisy May from your Son. Just thought you might like to see some pixs. I LOVE my puppies! They are the
best. Thanks so much!!
GOod afternoon Tonia! I just wanted to give you an update on Optimus( My husband Donny got him on aug 27th i believe) He is doing very well. He received his last Parvo shot yesterday and weighs in at 50 lbs! He is such a sweetie and I really just wanted to say thank you once again for such a great dog. heres a picture of him w the kids . Well i will keep you updated! thanks again,
I wanted to send you some pictures of Marvel. She is doing great. We took her to the vet Friday to get her next round of shots and everyone loved her. She is a wonderful companion for Chewie. We have had so many people tell us she looks like a little panda with her dark brown eyes and fluffy coat! We love her color and her beautiful fuzzy coat. She is so sweet. She plays hard--running around the yard and wrestling with Chewie. Then she sleeps hard--finding a dark corner of the living room to hide in. She is already about 18 pounds. We love her and are so happy to have her. Thank you again! I hope you enjoy the pictures. I thought you might want one for your Saint Bernard wall. We will send more as she grows! Thanks again!
I just wanted to update you on our little guy. He is doing great! I am so impressed how his temperment is. It is just great. We just love him so much! I will send you some pictures here soon. We have named him Optimist. But once again thank you
Once again we would like to thank you. Niko is very smart and in good health and even our vet can't believe how fast he's learning things but he keeps advising us how big he's gonna get. We're ready for it and figure that's jus more baby to love.
