We are so happy with Rosie (formerly Brandy) our new Papillon puppy. We were a little hesitant to pick a puppy online but after talking with Diane we were more comfortable. Since she was a Chrismas present it was so nice of you to send an updated picture before the holiday so we could show her to her new mom. She was thrilled Santa was getting her a baby of her own. We came to visit her at 5 weeks of age. We were impressed with the kennel, it was clean and all the dogs looked great. We got to meet her mom and dad. If we could of we would have taken her brothers and sister too (lol). Everyone we met was very nice. We even got to watch a puppy being born. At 7 weeks we came back to get her. She had a bath and the paper work went quick. We took Rosie to our vet and she was given a clean bill of health. He was impressed at how healthy and happy she was. She is now almost 11 weeks old and weighs 3 pounds(hopefully you can open the attachment).She is happy and healthy and very spoiled. We have two older papillons and Rosie just follows them around. We think she is the smartest puppy we ever had. We would highly recommend The Happy Woofer to any one looking to add to thier family . Over all it was a great experience.Thanks so much,
Peggy McAlister and family

Welcome to "The Happy Woofer"
THE HAPPY WOOFER is the home of your next healthy, happy, well-adjusted little puppy. We, Mike and Diane Sponaugle, are the owners of this fine establishment. Being in the pet industry, all of our near 60 years of life, we have the knowledge to raise your next puppy and the love for the dogs to do the job properly. In a farm setting of 25 acres, we and our animals have ample room to play and enjoy one another's company. Besides the dogs, we enjoy our goats, that we milk for a fresh supply of milk for our puppies; our chickens which produce fresh eggs for our dogs and puppies and our ponies, horses, donkey, duck, alpaca, kitties, potbellied pig, Macaw and Quaker parrot to enjoy. When you come to our farm, you are welcome to walk around and see all of these fine creatures, with our accompaniment of course. Our farm consists of a very friendly and acknowledgeable staff that can also help you with any answers and if they don’t know, they can find out for you.
When you visit, you will notice the very clean and healthy environment that we have established for the enjoyment of our dogs and your next little puppy. All of the love that is poured into these dogs and their care will surely reflect on their health and happiness when you take it home.
Please browse our website and read our testimonials that we update continually. These testimonials are a great way for you to get a feeling of what others thought of our kennel and their experience.
We can also board your pet at our fully heated and air conditioned facility. All of the pets have indoor/outdoor access and a large play yard for playtime, weather permitting.
Obedience classes are held on Tuesday nights with an ABC Certified Trainer. We always participate in the classes with either a puppy that is for sale or one of our own dogs.

Puppies, Testimonials and their New Homes
Hi, I've attached some recent photos of Clementine. She is doing great. She's pretty even tempered and easily trainable. She's pretty smart. We've never had any problems with inappropriate chewing or barking. She loves adults and kids, and other dogs of course and does well at doggie day care. She can be stubborn and has been known to ignore commands even if she understands them. She's highly food motivated and will do just about anything for chicken though. She's a bit of a couch potato but enjoys walks and playing with her toys. She's very sweet and affectionate and everyone falls in love with her within minutes of meeting her. We can't imagine life without her.

After losing our precious 12 year old Shih Tzu, Violet, who we think
came from a Pennsylvania Puppy Mill we were so happy to find the
Happy Woofer. Diane really cares about all the dogs and it is much
more than just a job for her unlike most places who are only in it
for the money. We reserved Dahlia (formerly Gem) a Shih Tzu puppy,
when she was only 4 days old. She had been born on our Violet’s
birthday. Diane sent weekly pictures of Dahlia including pictures
on my daughter’s birthday. We stopped by twice to see the puppies
and their Mom and Dad. All were well cared for and the staff was
more than happy to show us around. Right before we were to pick up
Dahlia we decided one was just not enough so we decided to reserve
Honey Rose (Rosie- formerly Bella) another Shih Tzu puppy and
Dahlia’s sister. After picking them up we took them to their 1st
vet appointment. Our vet was ecstatic about how healthy they were
and hearing how the Happy Woofer was run. Weeks after getting the
sisters we still text Diane questions and she is more than happy to
help. We would definitely recommend the Happy Woofer to anyone
looking for a happy, healthy, beautiful dog or 2.

Diane and Kate,
I just wanted to tell you that Gizzy is such a good dog! Thought you might enjoy seeing that he got a new kitty brother Charl and they love each other. Thanks for giving him a great start and socializing him when he was young. I attached a picture of them cuddling -- they play well together too! :)

About Mike and Diane
My wife, Diane, has been breeding dogs for around 32 years. Her experience with dogs has enabled us to specially choose each and every one of our dams and sires for their individual personalities and breed characteristics. We are very proud of not only the quality of the pups but also the state of the art facility we have for our dogs to live in....We know that choosing a puppy is a life time commitment not only in the monetary sense but also a commitment of the heart so we hope to provide a puppy of the highest standards so that you can enjoy each other for a long time....Some of our favorite terriers are the West Highland White Terrier, Yorkshire Terrier, Boston Terrier and the Miniature Pinscher. In the working class, we have the Pembroke Welsh Corgi, Bassett Hound and the Shetland Sheepdog; also known as the Sheltie.
