Looking for a breeder?

 

The LKC Breeder Referral line is only for information on AKC recognized breeds. Requests for ‘designer’ or other mixed breeds cannot be replied to as they are not recognized. If you have any question on your breed’s standing please use this link to the AKC.

 



We'll be happy to assist.

 

  Dog enthusiasts, pet stores, puppy mills. It's all so confusing but we can explain.
