formerly known as Sugar Grove Farms Bordeauxs (See story on the "about us" page)
HOW WE FELL IN LOVE:
In August of 2003, I decided I wanted a new puppy. I did research on the many breeds that interested me. I wanted a dog loyal to the family, not just one person. I knew I wanted a large dog ( I currently had a Rottweiler and an American Bulldog), but I was wavering between a Burnese Mountain Dog and a Dogue de Bordeaux. After researching for almost 9 months, I decided on a Bordeaux for numerous reasons but first and foremost was the coat upkeep. I have a very busy lifestyle, so a dog with a really long coat was out of the question. I found a local Bordeaux breeder 2 hours away and drove down to hopefully pick up my very first girl. I arrived and I fell in love. Katie Lynn came home with me that night, and the rest is history. Her doginality (personality) was to die for. Loyal, loving, friendly....all the qualities I wanted in a dog.....and so much more.

Katie Lynn DOB 12/07/2003-3/14/2012
My first Bordeaux and the reason I decided breed.
Meet Katie Lynn! She is a smaller female (94 lbs) out of East Coast's Sarge and Sarsha. She was one of 18 in the litter. Katie Lynn is a wonderful family pet. She has the patience of a saint. My 2 year old daughter climbs all over her and she is happiest when the kids are using her as a canine jungle gym. She is great around people and other dogs as well as cats, horses, chickens and other animals. She is not a leash dog and runs freely on our 5 acre farm. She passes on her wonderful, loving temperament to her offspring. Her even temperament and loyalty are the reasons I decided to breed the most wonderful breed of dogue to ever touch my heart. She is a very attentive mom, the kind of Dogue you want to raise your kids...LOL... And your puppies.
Unfortunately, Katie Lynn lost her battle with cancer in March of 2012. We miss her every day but are thankful to have her 2 daughters, Angel and Fiona here to carry on her legacy.
