Our family lives on a hobby farm in southern Minnesota and breeds irish wolfhounds purely for family pets. Our two main criteria for breeding are health and temperament. As our dogs are not fancy show dogs, we breed our puppies to be friendly & healthy family pets. We have 5 dogs total (4 wolfies and 1 terrier) so they all get plenty of attention. Our dogs are a part of our family and so are the puppies. Puppies are born and raised in our kitchen and are well socialized with our 4 children, their many friends and many other animals.
My husband is a veterinarian and the puppies are kept current on their shots and worming. We have done OFA testing for hips, elbows & heart on our adult dogs. We have also done liver shunt tests on most puppies. All puppies leave with a 2 year health guarantee, a bag of food, and a towel which smells like us in case of homesickness. We also discuss care, feeding, recommended books and veterinary care for wolfhounds as it is much different than for other dog breeds. We are always available to answer questions, or discuss issues, either by phone or by email, as we feel we are responsible for the puppies we produce from the day they are born until their death. We are always willing to take a puppy/dog back at any time during its' life if you find yourself unable to care for it properly.
We have made the decision to slowly phase out of breeding wolfhounds and will not be replacing any of our breeding stock as they retire.
Our next litters are not expected until 2019 and we anticipate these will be our last ones so email to be added to the waiting list if you think you may want a Linden Acres puppy!
Itty Bit will be retired in 2018 and we don't anticipate any more litters from her.
