About Us

Sweet little Punki asleep in Daddy’s arms

       My husband and I have been raising dogs for about 10 years, 5 years recently and about 5 years before our children. Within the last two years, we added a pair of Frenchies to our family.  We reside in beautiful east Tennessee and our Frenchies are our pets and live in our home.  We are not a kennel nor do we have a building out back or a ‘dog room’.  Our Frenchies are with us, under foot all day, and also enjoy a half acre back fenced yard with plenty of room to run with the kids.  We have 4 of our 6 children still at home and I’m a stay at home mom so we have lots of time and love to spend on our 4-legged babies.

       Our breeding plan is to raise the best Frenchies available by starting with the AKC standard.  To our great adult Frenchies, we add a holistic and healthy method of feeding and raising, and a very hands-on approach to caring for our adults and puppies. I’m also available after the adoption for ongoing support if needed.  All of our Frenchie puppies are from champion bloodlines.


       In 2010, I was reading about how small breed dogs, French bulldogs included, should be living to the age of 18-22 years and I realized that I hadn’t heard of any Frenchies living that long.  It was then, that I began my research to find out HOW we can raise our dogs to have an extended life-span. That is what we are doing now along with providing the ‘starter’ information to help new adoptive families make the choices that can enable their puppy to reach that exceptional life and health potential.

       From the beginning we have used a holistic food, one of the top 3 commercial pet foods in the world but since my research we have implemented 3 major changes that I believe are the foundation of raising French bulldogs, or other small breeds, to ADD about 4-8 years of life to the average life span, making the potential life span in the 18-22 year range or for the Frenchies because of their brachychephalic nature, I guesstimate 15-19 years.  As I prepare our adoptive families to welcome their new addition, I send them this basic info so they can be informed and continue preparing their new Frenchie puppy to enjoy an exceptional lifespan.

       Also, since we have been raising Bostons for over 10 years, we have references from around the country, so that you can see what other families have said about their experience with us and their puppy adopted from us.  We are now having families come back to get second puppies to be a sibling for their first one.

       All of our puppies are AKC registrable and come with a written Health Guarantee Agreement and HEALTH CERTIFICATE from our veterinarain.    Even though most of our Frenchies are adopted as companions, we raise them with the goal of correct conformation/markings in mind, and may consider a qualifying puppy for a show/breeding home for an extra fee.

       Our puppies also come with 2 health guarantees. First of all guaranteed to be healthy at time of delivery (and vet checked recently before delivery), also a 6 month genetic guarantee.  An additional optional health guarantee until 2 years (up to 24 months of age) if the new family will agree to a few things that we believe are vital for superb health and extended lifespan.

       We welcome your questions, and hope we can help you find your forever puppy.  Please feel free to call or email us with any questions you may have.  JanisLeee@yahoo.com  865.384.7631
