Our Story

We were both raised on local dairy farms. Various animals (including different breeds of dogs and puppies!) were part of our lives from little on up. The dog animal lovers we are it seemed empty without animals about the place when we started housekeeping. Trina, a purebred chihuahua, solved that problem and added some spice to our lives. In 2018 we added the first pugs, and as the saying goes, the rest is history. They were soon followed by more adorable mischievous playful characters in furry coats.

As a family, we enjoy working together to raise healthy well-socialized puppies. It the rewarding to assist helpless squirming newborns to grow into bouncy inquisitive playmates. We start with gentle handling at young ages. Around 4-5 weeks their personalities really emerge and they are ready to explore the world about them. Our sons play with the dogs and puppies daily introducing them to many and varied experiences. Toy dump truck rides, wagon rides, bundling in a blanket for a live dolly, exploring the sandbox, and generally being involved in the latest excitement are typical occurrences.

Sonshine Acres is licensed with USDA (# 35-A-0519) and the State of Wisconsin (#513734). Unannounced inspections and routine veterinarian visits are in place as we strive for optimum health and well being of our dogs and puppies. OFA evaluations on heart and patellas are part of the ongoing pursuit of raising healthy, happy puppies… from our home to yours!
