About Judy Maassen

Judy Maassen, and her husband John, started raising puppies in 1997. Since then, they have gained extensive knowledge of the dog world, which they have applied and continue to apply, to produce the quality, exceptional puppies that they do. This was something Judy had always wanted to do, and along with this dream, she was able to be a stay-at-home mom for her 5 children, who also share in the love for these small bundles of joy.

Raising quality puppies is something they take very seriously, and it gives them pleasure to share the joy there is, in the love of a happy and healthy puppy. Even though a healthy puppy is a happy puppy - happy puppies should also have a gorgeous color and coat, sparkly eyes, and bouncy (although sometimes shy) personalities. Dogs are really no different than people when it comes to emotions and personalities. Each one is different, and each one is unique!

Judy & John’s personalities are what really shines through when it comes to their business. Their love for their family runs deep, and they take pride in helping run their business together, as family, and as husband and wife. They believe in teamwork and working hard. They enjoy facing the challenges of their business to continue with their dream. The outcome from their passion, are their beautiful, quality, happy, and healthy puppies!
