The Versatile Samoyed
Many thanks to Jill Wilson for creating this video
Welcome to our home on the web. We hope you will enjoy your visit and introduction to some of our dogs.
We are Margaret and John MacFadden who have a small hobby kennel located in Bonshaw, Prince Edward Island, Canada, about 20 minutes west of Charlottetown.
Our goal is to produce beautiful healthy, sound Samoyeds that excel in breed type. Our Samoyeds make wonderful family companions, therapy companions, show/breed companions and are true to breed type and true to what a Samoyed should be.
We are very active in the sport of purebred dogs and extremely proud of the success we have had with our homebred Samoyeds. We are very proud to say that Margaret has breeder/owner/handled our dogs to Best in Shows, Multi-Best in Shows and many group wins. Obedience titles have also been earned on some of our dogs.
We are members in good standing of the Canadian Kennel Club and Marg is a member of the Samoyed Association of Canada and the Samoyed Club of America. We have also been very involved in Samoyed Rescue in both Canada and the USA.
Samoyeds are not our living – they are our love. We breed to improve the breed and only when we are looking for that special puppy to use ogram. We generally produce one or two litters per year. As such, we have puppies available occasionally to appropriately screened and approved companion homes. )
What to Expect from your Snowstar Puppy
All of our puppies are
raised in our home, underfoot, to ensure they are exposed to the goings
on of our life and to ensure that they are correctly socialized.
Our puppies have a
written guarantee that the sire and dam are clear of any hereditary
or congenital birth defects. Snowstar dogs are registered with the
Canadian Kennel Club, have been microchipped with CKC approved chips,
first set of vaccinations, vet checks. Puppies up to 26 weeks
will receive Pet Plan care insurance coverage. All companion
dogs are sold on a Non-Breeding Agreement which means they may not be
Our relationship with our new puppy owner does not end when the puppy goes to their new home. We are always available to offer support, encouragement or advice when needed. We strongly believe that we have a responsibility to puppies we produce for their entire lifetime. There is never a reason for a Snowstar puppy to be placed in a shelter or rescue ... we will always be available. In fact, our contract insists we be advised if situations in the home change or the dog needs to be returned.
As a breeder of these
wonderful dogs we stress the importance of health testing.
Prior to any breeding we ensure our dogs are properly health tested
(hips and eye certification available) to help us ensure that we are
breeding sound healthy Samoyeds.
Please feel free to email (email@example.com) or telephone (902-675-2752) (cell 902-626-7696) us at any time if you have any questions about our Samoyeds or the breed in general.
"IF DOGS RULED THE WORLD ...
We'd always find somewhere to bury our troubles.
Our spirits would be unleashed.
We'd stop barking up the wrong trees.
We'd always paws for reflection.
Beggars could be choosers.
We'd have faithful friends and loyal love.
We'd give a lick about each other."
