THIS IS WHO WE ARE
"You cannot do a Kindness too soon, for you never know how soon will be too late" Ralph Waldo Emerson
That quote is pretty much how we live our lives, at what our friends call 'Camp Williams'. Shakira is a small, family kennel devoted to our dogs. It is truly a family affair, my husband, sons and I are all an integral part of raising our dogs. Our grandchildren are now a part of our puppy training program! We strive for not just beautiful dogs but healthy, long-lived, intelligent companions. We have puppies in homes that are therapy dogs, others are working on obedience, agility and tracking.
We are much more concerned with finding forever, loving homes for our puppies, than to have them in a show home. A dog is a life-long commitment. Showing dogs can be such a small part of that lifetime. Our priority is to place our pups with committed families with references, rather than someone that is interested in just a show dog, Showing dogs is a fun extra, it's the icing, not the cake!
THIS IS WHAT WE DO
No matter where you get your puppy, please always do your research by going to the breeds' parent club site. Ask lots of questions and make sure that the parents have the appropriate health checks for their breed . There is never a reason why copies of this documentation cannot be shared. A pretty price tag does not guarantee a healthy, happy dog but buying a lesser dog at a savings will many times come at a greater cost.
If we can help at all please feel free to contact us.
