about to enter the wonderful world of the Finnish Lapphund.
As one of the more popular breeds in Finland the "Lappy", as
we affectionately call them, is relatively new here in the United States and even more so in California. With the
of the breed itself comes many questions about them; what are their
personalities like, what kind of pet are they, what are their pros and
cons, etc. and we hope to answer those questions and provide you with
additional information within our site.
community is very protective of their breed and rightfully so as they have
worked hard for years to carefully nurture the breeds introduction here
and to keep it's heritage as true to it's origin as possible.
We are so very, very fortunate to have found the wonderful breeders who
endured countless questions and were willing to take a chance with their
beloved breed on a "newbie" in their world and take on that
huge responsibility of guidance and education.
Having been in "dogs" since 1976 when we started
to exhibit Siberians, we always put the welfare of the
breed first and our goal with our
Lappies is no different; to be responsible and ethical, to provide
education to those interested and above all to adhere to
our motto of 35 years . . . . . . . .
Quality never means Quantity"
