WELCOME TO SNOWSHOES
My name is Jean and I live in the village of Fivehead in rural Somerset in the south west of England. My home and kennels stand in three acres of land backing on to the R.S.P.B woodlands, where I live with my husband and young family. I have over 30 years of experience in breeding dogs, but I have always preferred the larger breeds and decided after much research that the Alaskan malamute was the breed for me. I started off with a black and white bitch, which I called misha. She had the loveliest temperament and all the family instantly fell in love with her, but she did turn out to be a bit on the large size.
I liked the malamutes in France, as they were smaller, and so I went on to import my first boy named Takara. He was a wonderful dog and sired my first snowshoes puppies. I kept three girls from this litter: Storm, Sasha and Phoebe.
Always looking to keep good blood lines, I then imported a dog and a bitch (Tango & Roma) from Gloria Urbani of the Del lago Degli Orsi kennels in Italy. This enhanced my breeding and established a good type and sound temperament.
All my dogs are hip scored, eye tested and PN tested. They are well exercised and very much a part of our family life.
I hope you enjoyed looking at my web site and if you are interested in owning one of these very special dogs, please research the breed first and make sure it's the right dog for you. As it's very sad when they end up needing to be rehomed due to no fault of their own.
This is usaully when the novelty has worn off or lack of training has been put into the puppy.
I am always here to give advice and help if possible before and after buying a puppy.
