Elante consistently produces sound, typey, healthy dogs that will excel in the show ring or be your "best friend".  As a dedicated breeder with over 30 years experience, my commitment to you and your dog does not end when you acquire your puppy.  Owners are encouraged to call at anytime with questions or concerns for the lifetime of the dog.  I am always willing to assist.

Puppies and young adults are occasionally available to qualified homes.  If you have any questions, or would like additional information, please feel free to call or e-mail us.
