Alvin and Emma,
I just wanted to write and thank you for our pug. We got him from you in November and named him Poncho. He has been an amazing dog and we are thrilled with him. Since getting him we have heard from many people with pugs that had gotten a dog from you and they also loved the experience. The vet loves his personality and says he has great joints :)
We will be looking for another Pug at some point. If you all ever get a dog returned to you that needs a home, please feel free to reach out to us. And if you ever start to think of retiring PLEASE let us know before you do so.
Thank you again for the work you do. You are amazing people.
It is with a broken heart that I am taking BlackHawk/Poogey in today to be put to sleep. He has had 2 seizures today and is barely walking. For right now he is resting peacefully snuggling on the couch with me and all of his blankets. Just wanted to let you know.
Thank you again for entrusting him to me. He had my heart the second I saw him! He has been the most special little guy. I thank God and you both for the time that I have had with him and only wish it could have been longer.
Kera Brannen, RT (R)
~ Good bye Black Hawk (as HHK knew you). Thank you for being such a huge blessing to so many families across the country. You have brought so much love and joy to many homes with your beautiful babies. You are loved by many and we still smile when we think about how you spun around on your front feet while pottying. Thank you also, to the Brannens for giving him a wonderful retirement home. We appreciate all you did. ~ Emma for HHK
Hi Emma, I have been meaning to drop you a note and let you know that Bandit is doing just great. He is an absolute delight and has fit into our family like he was always there. I cannot believe how sweet and smart he is! Attached are some pictures of him as he is growing up fast. Hope all is well with you. many thanks, Leyla
Well Emma we have had our PJ for 10 days now and he has been such a blessing. I want to let everyone know that we own a pool and the pool has basically 3 decks it's got a lower deck one that you step up on and it's got like a small little bridge in it and an above ground pool with a deck around it and gate. I need to let everyone know how smart Alvin and Emma can raise their pugs. I have yet to have 1 accident in my house and have had him for 10 days. And while we were out at the pool playing with the bigger dogs cause they jump in-and-out of the pool he was watching well he did this all on his own... he went through the slats in the gate down the little bridge and down the deck and out to the yard to use the restroom. number 1 and number 2 in and he brought himself backup on the deck and backup to me. These pugs are so bright that a is just amazing me the things it this little guy can do he is definitely learning to keep his own here in the house he loves to play with his big sister and they play together very well because she is a border collie Aussie mix and she plays very gently with him so just to let you know I think he is got the best life a little pug could have but I needed the let everybody know how amazing this little guy is about no accidents in the house he has done very well so thank you very much Alvin and Emma for bringing us such a bright beautiful wonderful little pug he has definitely filled our hearts with joy and definitely help now heal that major sorrow of losing our last pug PC. I would give Howling Hills Kennels a 10 star rating but they only allow 5 so yes a 5 star rating with plus 5 more stars. This is PJ's swim vest. He has been in twice and seems to like it.
We have now had our PJ for 3days now and he is such a blessing he is helping to help heal the pain we have from losing our PC ( a pug to ) 2 1/2 most. ago. We have had zero accidents in the house. He is so much fun....loves playing with his big sister ( border collie/aussie mix ). I would highly recommend this kennel to anyone and everyone looking for a well bred pug. Thank you Emma for helping to heal our broken hearts.
Thank you so much for bringing us our little bundle of joy. We have had him now for 24hrs now and we have had no accidents in the house...YEAH!!!!!!! We lost our PC 2mo.agoand it left a huge whole in our heart that PJ ( PC Junior) has now filled. Thank you to howling hills kennels.
Ketchikan Jack is doing wonderfully well! He spends most days greeting tourists on his walks to my radio station. He seems to have an affinity for British and Australians? But really everyone fawns over him constantly. Also, he loves to socialize, and has been to several local events, like our big Solestice Celebration. He also really loves playing with Lily the Beagle at the Radio Station, too. What a great guy! He took his first boating outing, has been walking the docks, and has even been on the radio. Of course he is spoiled rotten, and sleeps with me every night (snoring all the way) He is super smart, and found a way to get into the Beggin Treats and hide them in the cushions of the sofa and chairs for later consumption. I just wanted to thank you again for such a wonderful addition to our family! To say that we love him is a huge understatement.
Good evening! Just wanted to let you guys know that Mily is settling in really well. She loves Yoda and does everything he does. She is becoming quiet the snuggle bug and the transition into the house hasn’t been bad at all. She is so sweet. Thanks so much for suggesting her. She’s the perfect fit. ❤️ Erica
PS. Mily was retired from HHK
Good afternoon! I have been meaning to email you ....we have a puppy from booty and woodys litter he is apricot and over 2 years old he has been a pleasure ...we think he is the best dog ever ...loves to cuddle his hiney shakes when anyone comes home and then we are attacked with kisses he plays with tons of toys enjoys a quick walk and rings a bell to go outside he is friendly to all (loves tummy rubs)I just wanted you to know we are so happy we came to you we felt like the training period was relatively quick since he went out on his own from day one ....thank you!!! ❤️The Ruhl family
Thank you for breeding such wonderful pugs. I wanted to let you know I named my pug Sonny. He has all his shots and is scheduled for his neuter at the end of march. Here are some photos of him and I want you to know how much joy he has brought to my life. He is spoiled rotten. Thank you and I’ve told so many people about you! I plan on coming back in about a year or two to get another pug, if you are still selling at that time. I hope you are doing well. Thank you again, Sarah
Hey guys, Happy New Year! I hope are well! Do you have any appointments available for Sunday afternoon, for a visit to look at the males, from Gunner’s litter? We are the proud owners of Winston & Hunter, who both came from you. Looking forward to hearing back.
Hi Emma, Just wanted to check in and let you know Hazel is doing beautifully. She's settling in nicely, had her vet check today and looks wonderful. I'm attaching some pictures so you can see how she's doing. Hope her sisters have been picked up and are doing well in their forever homes.
Good Morning, Our family got a little guy from you Sept 2017, from Lucky and Bandits June 23, 2017 litter. He is such a joy and a cuddler and we love him so much that we decided we would like another:) Is it possible to get another puppy from the next litter from Lucky and Bandit? I know they recently had one and it will be awhile before they have another. I'm attaching a couple pics of our little guy, Xander. Thanks So Much and I hope you have a blessed holiday season! ~Meghan~
I am interested in being added to the wait list for a Boston Terrier female. My daughter and I purchased a Boston Terrier puppy from you about 5.5 years ago and he has been the light of our lives. We are looking forward to doing business with you again. This is Yoda and we couldn’t love him any more if we tried. He is one of Bozo’s puppies.
Good Morning! We just wanted to let you know how much we love Dickens! He's SUCH a good little boy! We have him on a schedule so his day is predictable for him. He, knock on wood, is sleeping from 10 pm til 6:30 am without tinkling in his crate at night. He is using pee pee pads in the kitchen is is learning that is the spot to go. We have not let our puggle and Dickens play together yet as the first time we tried it, Bella pounced on him and he yelped. She is getting more used to having him in her world and out vet assures us they'll be fine as soon as Dickens gets a bit bigger. Speaking of our vet, she adores Dickens and gave him a clean bill of health and said he was a fine example of a little pug. She was most appreciative of your shot and worming records. She tested a stool sample and he has no worms or other critters in there! He has a tiny eye drainage, so our vet put him on eye drops twice a day til it clears up. He is a JOY, and we are so happy that he's OURS!! Thanks for taking such good care of him for us! Warmest regards, Candy
This sweet precious little girl has brought so much joy and laughter back into our lives! Sofie came home with us on July 26. We love her so much. Each day brings a new adventure. She gobbles her food, hates her leash, chews everything in sight yo include daddy’s slippers! I’m so glad we found Emma and Alvin. They were great to work with and so kind to let us visit! As soon as we fully retire we’ll be back for another pug! Thank you!
Hello!I just wanted to send you a few pictures of PJ (Princess Jasmine), the sole female puppy from the February 23rd Booty and Gunner litter. She is such a sweetheart! She loves everyone and wants to be friends with every dog we meet. PJ knows sit and stay, and we’re working very hard on heel (she likes to lead the walks). I could not be more blessed to wake up to her cuddles every day. Thank you so much for such a wonderful puppy!!Sincerely,Laura Kelly
Our beautiful Charlotte! If you are considering bringing a new addition to your family—Howling Kennel is stellar. The effort Emma and Alvin put into breeding is extremely extensive. We’ve used other breeders in the past however, we would never consider another. Currently adding a new addition to our family. Yes, there is a wait list, but I strongly urge one to hang tight... Clearly, there is a wait list for a reason! Highly respected breeders and strong ethics. We adore you both and thank you for our beautiful girl! In closing, this is a stellar breeder. Lynne and Nicholas Griffin
(add on from HHK that Lynn emailed us. I think everyone should be able to chuckle with the Griffins) ...
Just a note; and forgive me for rambling—but she oddly swims, goes into the beach with a life jacket and rides a little surf board when we’re at our beach house. She’s been videotaped by on lookers who just laugh hysterically! I should start a blog or YouTube on her! Our lab and her best buddy is getting old and starting to show his age. I fear she won’t do well if anything happens to him as she needs a companion for sure.
Good morning! We are so thankful for our beloved Charlotte! Amazing character, stunning Pug and ready for a sibling! You were just amazing to work with during a difficult time after loosing our senior Pug. Would never dream of using another breeder.
We are in love with our Boston “Charlie”. He was from the litter of Cola and Dipstick last year 2017. Charlie and I have done 18 classes of obedience training and we earned the “Canine Good Citizenship” from the AKC. Part of the training was to take him to pet friendly stores for socialization. I’ve met so many wonderful people because of Charlie. I have highly recommended Howling Hills Kennel to people who have stopped us, loved on Charlie, and asked where he was purchased. Charlie has brought so much laughter into our home. He is my constant companion! We would love to have a playmate for Charlie. Please put us on the list for another Boston. We would like a puppy with mostly black markings. It doesn’t matter female or male. We understand it will be next year for a puppy.
Sincerely, the Nelsons
Hi Alvin and Emma— Just wanted to update you on “Stinger Male #2.” He is absolutely a joy. He easily transitioned into our house. We had been forewarned that Pugs are hard to housebreak— he has had his moments but 9 times out of 10 he makes it outside. At 13 weeks he was already heading to the door when he had to go out. Most importantly he is just a sweet puppy. We couldn’t be more happy to add him into our family. You do great work!Thank you,The Willens
This is Judah at about 9 weeks--one week after we got him from Howling Hill. He is now just about 3 months old and doing great! We love him so much. He has a middle name now--Maccabee! Such a big name for a little pug. This is our second pug from Emma and Alvin and we are overjoyed to have such beautiful, healthy dogs.
HelloI am a return customer. I bought a fawn pug puppy in 2015. He is such a loving and wonderful dog. Best dog have ever had. He brings such joy to us everyday.I would love to be put on your list to buy another pug puppy. I would love another male fawn.Thanks you so much.Kind regardsMary
Ziggy was born April 3, 2017 and she is now 9 months old. She is a joy!! Such a personality!! We had a very positive experience from start to finish. She is a healthy, happy pug. Emma and Alvin were very easy to work with and answered any questions we had and always got right back with us. When its time to get another Pug brother or sister we will definitely use Howling Hills.
Good Evening Emma and Alvin, My husband and I just wanted to thank you for giving us the most perfect pug! It has been a dream come true having our boy in our home. He’s been given the name Frank and he’s one smart boy. He is definitely my snuggle buddy and I just wanted you all to know how happy I am. Hope all is well for you guys and we can’t wait to bring Frank home a sibling one day. Thank you for all you do!Here’s some pictures of how Frank has grown!
I have three dogs from you guys. Two black pugs and one fawn pug which are the greatest puggies!The most recent dog I got from you is Dream. She was the mom of my sweet samarai. Dream adjusted to home life and is so sweet. All of my dogs get a long and make every day an adventure. Thank you and I will be back soon for a black pug pup.Susan Oliver
Austin has recently turned 2 and right from day one has been a great addition to our family. We have nothing but positive experiences from the day we first saw him to uhe day we brought him home. Thank you Howling Hills for a great addition to our family.
Hi Emma and Alvin! Have a wonderful Thanksgiving. Wanted to send you a couple of pics of Butkus. We love love love him. He has the best demeanor. Sweetest boy! Hope you all are doing great! God bless you all! Very best. Lynn and Rodney
