Hi Diane,

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

Holmes, Pennsylvania

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.


We invite you to come visit us and our pets at any time between the hours of 12 – 4, 7 days a week and if necessary, we can accommodate your personal needs of after hour appointments.

Puppies Playing


AubreyAubreyHi grandma! I started sleeping in he big bed and I'm doing great. No accidents!!!! Went and saw my great Gmom and it made her day! But I'm having so much fun!! Thanks Diane she is an amazing puppy ​!    Aubrey​

CoconutCoconutHi Diane – I wasn’t sure if I had shared these pictures with you…she’s beautiful and we are so happy with her.  She LOVES to take walks and play.  If you mention the word “walk” or she sees you with her harness and leash she goes crazy to get out.  She enjoys making friends at the “Puppy Park” and loves taking a ride in the car.  It’s so nice to come home and get greeted by Coconut with lots of kisses!!  We are really enjoying having her as part of our family – a great addition!   Thanks. ​   Miller Family​


ErnieErnieHi Diane, We bought our Boston, Ernie, from you last August. We just wanted to write to let you know how much we love our sweet boy Ernie. He just celebrated his first birthday. We are constantly stopped and asked about him, to take pictures of him, etc. He is so gentle, sweet, and loving. We could not have imagined a better dog for our family. Thank you so much for the joy you have given us in our puppy! I hope that you are well, all the best from our family! Cati

The Ottinger Family from Newark, De., adopted little Izzy, (formerly Stella) a Porkie ( Pomeranian X Yorkie) in May of this year 2015.  That little dog is having the time of its life and they say that she is "Fearless and Content all of the time."  We love seeing our puppies having such a great time with their new families.

This a picture of Breezy, a Shorkie-Tzu, belonging to Kelly from Milford, De.  and  Macy, a Dapple Dachshund, belonging to Noelle also from Milford, De.  Kelly and Noelle are friends so Breezy and Macy will grow up playing together.  This is right after, within a week, of the puppies going to their new homes.


Thanks Diane. I took her for a check up this morning and everything was fine. They did give me some deworming meds. My neighbor also got a puppy from you a couple of weeks ago so here is a cute pic of them together...breezy(her name was Lucy at your place) and Macy.

Murphy and Maggie, (Great Pyrenees Puppies from Thor and Louloo) are both doing extremely well and enjoy their house and yard.  They are pretty much inseparable.  A few pictures are attached.  Except for the hats, none of these are "staged".  At least one of these pics are going to be in a calendar for the Patient Kidney Association - pkanow.org.  So Maggie and Murphy will be famous.........  Jim & Mary,  Holyoke, MA

Happy Halloween from Gus

Hi Diane,   He is doing great. Super smart. He loves to show off. He is very proud to wear is costume. He is very active. Not real cuddly unless he is tired and ready for bed. Just learned to do steps last week so that's been entertaining. He knows when I'm getting his dinner ready he goes to his spot where I put the food down for him. Still working on the potty training but that will come with time. He is certainly a joy to our family.    Laurie Jenks ( laurie.jenks@gmail.com )

About Mike and Diane

Life is good!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.
