Lois Horan: Papillon Breeder
Message from Lois: I am extremely proud to be recognized by AKC as a Breeder Of Merit. The Breeder Of Merit Program honors breeder/exhibitors' dedication and hard work as we continue to produce dogs that are healthy, capable, and beautiful. AKC says: "The foundation of today's AKC, Breeders of Merit have the power to influence, guide, and teach future breeders, exhibitors, and all purebred dog owners."

I started raising and showing dogs in 1957 when I was in my teens.   I married a professional handler who later turned AKC Judge and put my professional handling aside (except for my own dogs) until his untimely passing in 2005.  In 2006, I went back to handling and was reinstated in the PHA.  I have shown most all breeds. 

I have owned, raised and shown Papillons for over 50 years.  Many of my dogs are the foundation of other show kennels.  I remarried in 2007 and continue to operate The Pines Papillons.  The other breeds that I have bred, raised and shown are Weimaraners, German Shorthair Pointers, German Wiredhaired Pointers,  Shetland Sheepdogs,  Pomeranians and Samoyeds.   I have raised and shown 2 National Champions.  I can boast having a homebred "Best in Show" Pom CH., The Pines Hells A Poppin who sired a "Best in Show" son.

We've sold hundreds of puppies over the years.  I can't post all their pictures, BUT here are some recent ones.  This feisty little girl, Monique, now lives in Louisiana where she trains every day for the Obedience ring.  The first pic is of her at 4 months before her ear feathers began coming in, and her mamma got this watercolor done of her at about 1 year of age.

These 2011 Christmas puppies, plus 3 others from another litter, made great Christmas gifts.

Now, don't you want one?  PLEASE, don't hesitate to Contact Me with questions about the breed, or to check on the availability of puppies.
