Since 1986

For over three decades, we have watched our small family farm grow and develop into so much more than just a business. Since 1986 we have worked with hundreds of families to find them the perfect puppy match, all the while staying true to our commitment of excellence and true to our small, family-owned business roots. Our namesake, the infamous crooked rooster weathervane that sits atop our green barn, can still be found on our property to this day!  Our goal is not simply to be excellent in our field of breeding and raising healthy, thriving puppies, but to offer connection, education, and lasting impact for the people that welcome these dogs into their homes. We have witnessed and heard hundreds if not thousands of stories of how our dogs have enriched and transformed our clients’ lives, and we could not be more grateful to play such a significant role.

how our dogs are making a difference

Around 70% of our Coltrievers go into a variety of service, therapy, and rescue roles. We are honored to have our dogs play such an impactful role in the lives of their families and communities.
