Known adoringly as Taffy.
A gentle giant of a Beardie, Taffy came into our lives when we lost a beloved rescue pet from China. Heartbroken my family searched for a puppy suitable as a companion for the remaining rescue pining for his lost sibling.
We needed a gentle breed and I wanted a bitch to take the place of my missing rescue who had lovingly been a part of our family for so long.
An incredible lead saw me driving to Wales to meet Lynne Sharpe who breeds Brambledales.
The minute I saw Lynnes litter I was smitten, her beardies are the most incredible dogs. You really have to see them to understand how I felt at that time.
While I looked at the female puppy that I had driven so far to see a little male kept catching my eye. He was adorable and it was love ar first sight.

I will never forget the look on everyones face when I returned home with a sweet black and white bundle that happened to be huge. Everyone was waiting for me to walk in with a little female after all their searching for just the right puppy.
But I had fallen in love with the most gorgeous boy.
Our relationship and adventure into owning a Beardie had begun ......little did I know that Taffy would live all over the world with me.
He is a blessing .........and I am so grateful to Lynne and her Beardies for helping me fall in love with this breed.
