We are Rick and Sherry Rhoads. We live on 17+ acres north of Mineral Wells, Texas with our dogs.
Both Rick and I have had dogs our whole lives. I had wanted a Mastiff for a very long time and finally in 2000 we brought Harley, our first, home. Harley led to our interest in showing dogs, and we added more Mastiffs over the years. We competed in AKC conformation events, achieved prestigious awards and really enjoyed the competition and comradery.
Later we added two sporting breeds to our dog show family. Rick had always hunted labs, and I was drawn to the calmer hunting nature, the look and the personality of the Spinone. We continued with conformation and added AKC Hunt Testing with our sporting breeds. In 2016 we added a Norwich Terrier to the family. She earned her AKC championship in one weekend and has recently been exploring Barnhunt as an extracurricular activity.
With encouragement from and the tutelage of a breeder friend, we bred our Spinone and produced lovely puppies over the last several years. Some of our puppies have gone on to achieve their AKC Championship, many are accomplished hunters, and all are beloved companions.
Our website is under construction. Come back, soon for information on the breeds we love and our dogs.
