Southern California Breeders List

Here, I'm starting a list of breeders in SoCal, from the Mexican border to the Central Valley and Central Coast. I'll add to it as I go. Most will be what I believe to be good and reputable breeders, but there may be a few cautionary tales listed here, too. Feel free to add to my list.

A "*" means that I know the breeder personally and recommend them.
A "!" means that I would not recommend getting a puppy from this breeder.

All * and ! are my own personal opinions, as of the date of this posting, and may change after the time to edit the post expires.

Okay, here we go...

Thank you very much. I'm now going to request that the identical thread I started three years ago be locked. I spent a very long time putting that list together. I really appreciate that you have duplicated it so it can continue to educate and stand as a resource for members here.

And thank you for including me, since the mods suddenly deleted me from my own thread, which has been there for three years without a problem, until suddenly today it's a problem for some unknown reason. I truly appreciate your efforts, as I'm sure readers here will appreciate it for years to come.

All I did was copy and paste the original post per Dana. I have no idea what is outdated or not.

Oh totally, I'm just noting it if people are looking. There are breeders I would add to that list at this juncture as well as breeders who are on the list who are no longer actively breeding.

Smooch - CH Ridgeview's Last Kiss MBISS
Roxy - Hi-Tide's Endless Summer MBISS

Are you asking if you can be added to the original thread?

If so, no that thread was closed per your request. No additional posts can be made in it.

Your info is included in the first post of this thread, at least your FB page is which has a link to your website.

Members have 4 hours to edit a post, after that a member cannot make any changes to a post.
