From my earliest memory I have loved dogs. In fact my mother often tells the story of my instant attraction to the first dog I ever met; a large Yellow Lab who luckily loved kids because I hugged him on first sight.
As a child I would look through dog books picking out my favorite dogs, the one I would have when I grew up or sooner if I could talk my parents into it. My first pick was the Afghan Hound because they where just stunning but I always thought the coat care would be too much and I heard they where stupid, which by the way is not even close to true. I never did talk my parents into a dog but when I moved out on my own the first thing I did was get a dog. Then I met my first Leonberger and I fell in love with that breed and then my daughter wanted a little dog and we found the Italian Greyhound for her and that little dog snuggled into my lap and my heart in very short order. Not long ago I saw a magnificent Afghan at a dog show and ... suffice to say my inner five year old has finally been satisfied Afghan Hounds are now a part of the Lewenhart family.
My passion is to breed dogs of outstanding temperament, beauty and health.
