I dont want a show dog; I just want a pet.
This is one of the most pervasive sentiments that puppy buyers, especially families, express when they're looking for a dog. What they really mean, of course, is that they don't want a show BREEDER don't want to pay the high price they think show breeders charge, don't want to go through the often-invasive interview process, and think that they're getting a better deal or a real bargain because they can get a Lab for $300 or a Shepherd for $150.
I want you to change your mind. I want you to not only realize the benefits of buying a show-bred dog, I want you to INSIST on a show-bred dog. And I want you to realize that the cheap dog is really the one that's the rip-off. And then I want you to go be obnoxious and, when your workmate says she's getting a puppy because her neighbor, who raises them, will give her one for free, or when your brother-in-law announces that they're buying a goldendoodle for the kids, I want you to launch yourself into their solar plexus and steal their wallets and their car keys.
If I ask you why you want a Maltese, or a Lab, or a Leonberger, or a Cardigan, I would bet you're not going to talk about how much you like their color. You're going to tell me things about personality, ability (to perform a specific task), relationships with other animals or humans, size, coat, temperament, and so on. You'll describe playing ball, or how affectionate you've heard that they are, or how well they get along with kids.
The things you will be looking for aren't the things that describe just "dog"; they'll be the things that make this particular breed unique and unlike other breeds.
That's where people have made the right initial decision they've taken the time and made the effort to understand that there are differences between breeds and that they should get one that at least comes close to matching their picture of what they want a dog to be.
Their next step, tragically, is that they go out and find a dog of that breed for as little money and with as much ease as possible.
You need to realize that when you do this, you're going to the used car dealership, WATCHING them pry the "Audi" plate off a new car, observing them as they use Bondo to stick it on a '98 Corolla, and then writing them a check and feeling smug that you got an Audi for so little.
It is no bargain.
Those things that distinguish the breed you want from the
generic world of "dog" are only there because somebody worked
really hard to get them there. And as soon as that work ceases,
the dog, no matter how purebred, begins to revert to the
generic. That doesn't mean you won't get a good dog the magic
and the blessing of dogs is that they are so hard to mess up, in
their good souls and minds, that even the most hideously bred
one can still be a great dog but it will not be a good
Shepherd, or good Puli, or a good Cardigan. You will not get the
specialized abilities, tendencies, or talents of the breed.
If you want a purebred and you know that a rescue is not going
to fit the bill, the absolute WORST thing you can do is assume
that a name equals anything. They really are nothing more than
name plates on cars. What matters is whether the engineering and
design and service department back up the name plate, so you
have some expectation that you're walking away with more than a

|Future puppy parents. Please make a note that Littlehorse will no longer support the use of Heartworm prevention that also prevents fleas. You must have your dog on heartworm prevention so ask you vet for one that is only for heartworms. Trifexis is a killer. So far 700 dogs have been reported to have died because of it's use and of course the company Elanco is denying it. This is not including the tens of thousands who have been reported ill. Many vets will neither confirm or deny. If you use this drug you will void your guarantee as we have seen first hand what it can do and wish to spare you and your puppy the pain and heartache.

Below are some of our past puppies.
The Gentle Giant at his best.
I get asked frequently if Great Danes get along with other dogs. Above is a picture of Phoenix who is a young stud dog next to Angus who before his genetic neurological condition rendered him crippled and incontinent would bark and growl and carry on like he was going to rip Phoenix's throat out from behind a fence. Angus has no use of his rear legs at all. My husband moves him from place to place during the day for a change of view. He barks all the time because he wants attention. That is where Phoenix comes in. It seems that Phoenix has taken Angus under his wing and feels sorry for him so he constantly lays next to him so he isn't alone.
Sorry the picture isn't any clearer but I had to take in through a dirty window so they wouldn't see me.

What people are saying about our dogs.
This is Gus. He belongs to the Kelly family and celebrated his second birthday on Sept. 30th. Dam is Rain and sire is Spanky. Thanks for sharing guys.
This is Bailey. She is half sister to our newest litter. In this photo she is 8 months of age and 90 lbs.She is a quick study, and has picked up the basics for fetching (will be used for retrieving objects) and nudging (used to turn on lights, opening doors, etc.). She has a lot of fun! She is being trained as a service dog. Many thanks to her owners the Corbett's of California for sharing.
This is Wasabi in his San Antonio Rampage shirt. He just won a years worth of free dog food from their contest. Bet they weren't counting on feeding a Great Dane for a year. :) He belongs to Adriana Hernandez. Sire: Phoenix, Dam: PoPo
Hi Melody and Family,
Well, we made it! Here are today's pictures of Paloma on her 10th Birthday.She was in the Ides of March litter out of Willis & Kimmy.Although much grayer, and oh so slowed down, she is thriving for an "Old Girl."These were taken just before we went on our daily walk, which over the years has been shortened from 2 miles,to about 200 yards. I'll be thrilled if I can send you pictures on her 11th birthday but even having her be a part of our livesfor the past ten hearts has been a blessing. She began life in Texas, lived out most of her prime years in Alaska runningon the beaches of Homer and now, like me, is spending her twilight years in the warmth of the desert sun.Betsy and I thank you for bringing her, and her litter mates, into the world, and want you to know how fortunate we feel thatyou saw fit to allow us to nurture Paloma for her time on this earth.God Bless you, and your family.We wish all her litter mates a very joyous 10th birthday.
Gary, Betsy, & PalomaMesquite, Nevada March 15, 2012
