In addition, we have raised and shown
Papillons since 1998. After finishing a number of them, ours
and for clients, we started breeding Papillons in 2002. We have
bred a few litters so far and we are looking forward to establishing a Farleys D line of Papillons. We are
members of the Three Rivers Papillon
Club of PA where Terry is the founding President and John has
served as Treasurer and Vice-President. John is member of the
Papillon Club of America.
In the year 2000, John fell in love at first
sight with a Havanese which we named Lola. She was
finished in no time and became our first Havanese. Since then we
have acquired two additional Havanese, Eva and Tango, this time
from wonderful people and honored friends Pat and Sue of Glen Iris
in Williamsport, PA. During the first 5 years of being in the
breed, we have shown and finished many dogs and have been learning
about the Havanese. Our first litter was bred in 2005 and are
pleased to say we championed two puppies from the Bred-By class
from that litter and are looking forward to champion two more from
our second litter.

Banquet Dinner our girl Eva,
Ch Farleys D Evita of Glen Iris, was

Merit, for having produced 5 or more
champions. She also received the award of Brood Bitch of the Year
for having produced 3 or more champions in 2008.

We are members of Fort Steuben
Kennel Association All-breed club.
Terry has judged many AKC recognized A
and B matches and presented seminars for judges and aspiring judges
on topics such as Poodle genetics and Poodle breed type. He is
hoping to pursue his judging license in the future.
We are conscientious and
responsible breeders that breed for the purpose of producing dogs
to exhibit for ourselves, occasionally raising one or two litters
per year in Apricot, Red and Black Standard Poodles, Papillons
and/or Havanese. Our goal from the start was,
and still remains, to raise healthy, happy, well-tempered, affectionate
puppies that are also a good representation of the breed.
By carefully selecting bloodlines and characteristics
that complement one another together with extensive pedigree research,
networking and health testing we feel our puppies to be an
exemplary representation of type, structure and temperament the
Standard Poodle, Papillon and Havanese breeds require.
Our puppies are well-suited for
conformation, all-around performance, and to be beloved pets.
