Meet Finn!

Finn is quite a “talker.”  He likes to communicate not through barks, but through different, very cute, vocalizations.  Finn will converse all day if you want, but you have to encourage him.

we sure had fun at the 2017 OC Pet Expo!

What a great event this year!  Our booth was very popular with event goers taking photos, sharing their personal doxie stories, helping us raise funds, and showing the love for our favorite breed. Best moments were with the younger kids!  All SCDR dogs on site were very friendly and showed their love for the youngsters by delivering lots of kisses and allowing themselves to be pet and hugged relentlessly.  SCDR loves future doxie owners too!



seniors are bff's!
