Why Choose Morning Star?

Love

We are a small family-run nursery in Rochester, NY. Our two females, Minnie and Korra (both parti-brindles), are our pets. Our puppies are raised in a loving environment with positive socialization. Your puppy will take a “momma-scented” cloth home to ease its transition.

Excellence

Our puppy line has over 44 champions and is exceptional in health, temperament, and snuggle-ability. They have excellent bites, legs, eyes, noses. None of our dogs have ever had a lasting health issue. The sire, Atticus, hails from Alfred, NY and is owned by Palmers Puppies. They have recently retired their website, but we are delighted to have had a wonderful relationship with their nursery. The line is on the smaller end of standard.

Support

“When you receive one of our puppies, you receive our support. Our AKC puppies come to you with first shots, worming treatment (routine), vet papers, health guarantee, and we are always just a phone call away to help you with any questions. We work closely with our veterinarian and have relationships with other breeders who combined provide decades of experience.
