Welcome to my page! The goal for our AKC Boston Terrier futures, is to breed healthy, sound Boston's
with correct structure, longevity, and the best temperaments.
Welcome to my page! My love for this wonderful breed began with a little black and white Boston boy named Buddy. I acquired him from a family member who could no longer keep him. That day changed my life forever and now I could not imagine life without being owned by a Boston Terrier.
I have found that the Boston Terrier breed best suits my home and represents my lifestyle the very best. This is a family affair and owned and operated by my mom and me as hobby breeders of quality AKC Boston Terriers.
On the traditional side of things..... I have acquired some very nice puppies of champion lineage for those who prefer the tuxedo style Boston Terrier. The main goal is to have the best of both worlds with both traditional lines, for some future show hopefuls and also non-traditional lines for the color enthusiast but most importantly, to produce healthy puppies from health tested parents of great temperament and sound structure... that puppy buyers can be proud to own and that I am proud to represent.
Our dogs are FAMILY FIRST...then breeding is a passion and done for the soul purpose of sharing that passion with others and for the love of the breed. The mission is to produce puppies of nice quality and conformation and sound structure focusing on health and temperament first and foremost regardless of color. Prices reflect the amount of hard work, blood, sweat and tears put into the breeding program as well as, the amount of health testing done on each parent prior to breeding, the care given and time and money spent to ensure buyers will receive the best I have to offer when purchasing one of my fur babies. I am continuously striving to improve with each litter, and offer a 2 year health guarantee for any genetic life-threatening disease and a lifetime of breeder support.
All of our dogs are AKC registered and tested to be clear of JHC (juvenile hereditary cataracts) before bred. I am a proud members of the AKC and participate in the AKC Bred with Heart program. I have very exciting things planned for the future and will continue to health test one dog at a time and future puppies as well. We are expecting some new litters this year, so please check the upcoming litters page to see when puppies are expected and for price and availability please call me over email as I do not check email daily. I can be reached at 931-625-1184.
All our dogs are registered with AKC (American Kennel Club). I do keep in contact, the best way I can, with all of my puppies owners and their families and hope the same of them. I want to see my babies grow and I welcome any questions, comments or concerns for the lifetime of the dog and thereafter. I don't just want to sell you a dog I want to become family with you and your family as well and keep in touch.
My puppies are mainly sold on limited registration under strict spay and neuter contracts. I do offer on occasion pups with full registration to very select homes with breeders I know and trust, and for an additional fee and often only when looking to add a new bloodline or trade out bloodlines with other established breeders. Through the expert advice and knowledge of mentors, and others more experienced and knowledgeable than me, we can continue to grow. I welcome constructive criticism and pointers on how to improve on the breed, however I will not accept bashing and being plain rude. I understand that breeding boston terriers of "color" is a taboo for some but I feel that is a personal choice and I respect the "breed standard" and do my best to produce as close to the standard as possible with the exception being color. I encourage buyers to research about the breed before buying and if I am not the breeder for you, I don't mind referring you to another reputable breeder I may know. However, I do not condone puppy mills, brokers or un-ethical breeders that have no regard for health testing or proper care of this fabulous breed.
I have incorporated into our breeding program that prior to breeding, or purchasing puppies from a breeder that the (parents and/or the puppies) at a minimum MUST be tested for DM, and JHC (juvenile hereditary cataracts). This is a very important, very inexpensive, and simple test to ENSURE your puppies, and/ or puppies I buy for the program will not be born blind or go blind within the first three years of their life. I am also testing one dog at a time for OFA Patella, (hips) BAER (hearing), CERF (eyes) and Cardio (heart) and they will be certified and registered in the OFA database once health testing is completed. I want to ensure I am producing quality, health-tested puppies of good temperament for you and your family and strive to improve and better the breed with each new litter produced here at Joyful Heart traditional or not. I am not offended if you do not support these decisions, you are entitled to yours as I am mine. I just would like you simply move on and not inquire or apply for one of my puppies if that is your choice. I respect your decision in doing so please respect mine. I am striving to breed to the best of my ability healthy, beautiful and correct temperament Boston babies for all the Boston lovers to enjoy.
I update my web page often with pictures of my dogs, and with the puppies in their new homes. I enjoy learning more and more about the Boston breed, and enjoy meeting new people...I am also a proud member of The ALL Color Boston Terrier Club of America. I believe in health tested parents and producing quality puppies of both tradional and non-tradional colors for you and your family to enjoy for a lifetime.
I do love sharing experiences with others and hearing about theirs. I hope you will enjoy the
site and feel free to email me with any questions or concerns
you may have. I am always happy to talk "boston's" and welcome you to
come and visit the home of Joyful Heart Boston Terriers.

OUR MISSION: At Joyful Heart Boston Terriers, my endeavor is to make the process of finding your next family member a safe and easy process for you. I will screen potential puppy buyers, check the puppy's health and equip you with information you may need to be a responsible puppy parent, I do not ship puppies, I do not feel it is in the best interest of the puppy and like to meet new extended family members. and encourage you to come and visit my home so you can see the parents/and/or/siblings of your new puppy and the place where your new puppy was raised. I also reserve the right to do home inspections before placing a puppyshould I choose to do so. I want to make sure that I have matched the right puppy to the right home and that the puppy is going to a safe and loving home and will not be sold to pet stores, puppy mills or backyard breeders.
I require all our puppies to undergo a health screening (which is conducted by our veterinarian) before they come home to you. My license veterinarian will fill out a comprehensive health evaluation report and that will be included in your puppy folder. I require this report to be completed as close to the date of your puppy coming home to you, so as to ensure your puppy's health evaluation is a recent one. The puppies will be up-to-date on vaccinations and de-wormed prior to leaving and be started on NuVet vitamins to keep the immune system healthy. I will encourage the new buyer to continue the puppy on this supplement and extend the health guarantee by doing so.
I also health test your puppy or puppy's parent for JHC (juvenile hereditary cataracts) before leaving my home to ensure your puppy is cleared from and/or a non-carrier of JHC. If puppy is found to be a carrier of JHC that puppy will be spayed/neutered before leaving and placed in a pet companion home. (not for breeding).
ALL my Boston babies are reared indoors and loved daily. I am a Christian who loves God first, my family and all of my pets. I am owned by young dogs, senior dogs, and of course, breeding dogs. I support and encourage Boston rescue and will be happy to refer you to one if you feel that a "new puppy" may not be the right fit for you or you are simply looking to help save the life of a precious Boston in need.
YOU can rest assured when choosing Joyful Heart Boston Terriers for your next puppy, I have provided you, to the best of my ability, a healthy, happy puppy that has been given lots and lots of LOVE! In return, I diligently screen potential buyers for the safety of our puppies and to ensure that puppy has found a lifelong friend and forever home! I sell my puppies on AKC limited registration. Full registration may require and additional fee to select like-minded individuals and established breeders only. If you are searching for a cheaper puppy, or non-papered puppy, then I may not be the breeder for you, but if you are seeking a quality puppy, reared with lots of love and given the utmost care and concern for health, look no further than Joyful Heart Boston Terriers.
