|Welcome to Bur-Way Stars Kennels|
| NOTICE!!! Beginning November 18, 2013, I will be joining a very large number of other breeders across the U.S. in no longer shipping puppies. Due to a change in Department of Agriculture regulations for pet breeders that USDA itself has interpreted in contradictory ways, it is impossible for most persons who sell dogs to know whether it is legal to ship a dog that the buyer has not already seen at the seller's location. Violations of this rule carry severe penalties. For our safety, ALL sales must take place at the breeder's premises.|
This ruling is going to seriously curtail the choice of those wishing to buy the puppy of their choice unless you are willing to travel to your breeder of choice regardless of distance. As written this will also affect service dogs being made available to those in need.
While we do understand the need to stop those who don't properly care for their animals, and who knowingly sell sick puppies, we already have state and federal laws for those things.
If you would like to help us fight this bad choice of regulation policy, please contact me or your breeder of choice to see what you can do to help. It is YOUR right to be able to buy a puppy from whoever you choose and to pick it up personally or have your puppy shipped to you or to meet your breeder at a mutually agreed upon place to save you travel and expense. However you only have that right if it remains OUR right to offer those choices.
We raise, show and perform with our Rat Terriers, Toy Fox Terriers and American Hairless Terriers! We have two Doberman Pinschers that we love as well. We co-own several American PitBull Terriers, however they do not live with us. We are a medium breeding, showing kennel operation. Both myself and our daughter work together to keep things running smoothly. We are right in the middle of North Central Texas...almost to the Oklahoma border. We live on a beautiful, 60 acre ranch, where our Rats are allowed to hunt and play...the entire day through.
|We feed a RAW diet with some grainfree kibble occasionally used...our dogs get plenty of exercise. Pups are born in the house...with lots and lots of socialization. |
We do OFA/Penn-Hip testing for LCP, CHD, Cardiac and patellas, all our breeding dogs have been DNA tested for PLL(Primary Lens Luxation). We are very proud to say we have Rat Terriers here that have 4 generations of fully tested dogs behind them.
All our dogs are dual registered with UKC and AKC. Our Rat Terriers have just recently been recognized into the AKC-FSS program and we are in the process of insuring that all of them are dual registered as well.
We are proud members of the AHTA (American Hairless Terrier Association) we attend as many seminars related to dog behavior, training and working with dogs that we can each year. We try to stay active in doggie performance events...and you can see some of our dogs in the agility ring, obedience ring, weight pull arena as well as Terrier Races...Much like the UKC motto..."Our Dogs Do Stuff"...
Stop by and visit with us for awhile...and give us a call...we love talking Rat Terriers, AHT's, TFT's (Terriers of any sort really) and DAWGS! 940 239-5029 or e-mail email@example.com
