Thank you for visiting our website,
we are Karen and Tony, we live in Suffolk with our Finnish
Lapphunds and three Alpacas.
I first discovered the Finnish
Lapphund in 1999, two puppies joined a dog training club that I used
to attend with Robyn, our German Shepherd and Jess, our Chinese
I was really taken with the Lapphund
puppies and enjoyed seeing them every week. I told Tony about the
breed, he agreed they would be a breed he would like to own but the
timing was not right. At that time Lapphunds were a rare breed, we
had a young child, two dogs and two cats.
We lost Robyn to cancer
and a German Shepherd Puppy, Kelly needed a home. Then we lost Jess
and we took on a fabulous Rough Collie Travis. It seemed like when I
was ready for a Lapphund Puppy another dog needed a home so the
Lapphund dream continued.
In 2008 I decided that I would like
to get another dog for agility. I wanted a Finnish Lapphund puppy
this time and this was when my search for a Lapphund puppy began. I
was on a few breeders lists, had joined a club, attended events,
went on walks however it just didnít seem to happen and after about
eighteen months I was all for giving up. But, a twist of fate meant
that within a week of getting Isla, my long awaited Finnish Lapphund puppy, I found myself
collecting Rufus an older Finnish Lapphund!
