Hi we are Bob and Carol Whitcomb of Award Art Kennels in the beautiful western foot hills of West Virginia.
tell you about how we came to run a family operated kennel.
before we ever met myself and Bob both had a love for
dogs well all animals are dogs are part of our family. We were both breeders and didnt know about each other we have been
breeders for more than 40 years.
Bob loved and breed large dogs and my passion and love was the smaller breeds.
for when I met Bob I wanted to be sure my dog loved him so I gave him the dog test at the time I had a very loving Maltese
named Chipper if chipper did like Bob I knew this would nerver work out but no worry Chipper loved Bob as Bob loved Chipper
was on Bob's lap the whole evening. We have been married 28 years Chipper knew what he was doing a very Smart dog.
of all the breeds Bob had bred our Old English Sheep Dog, captured his heart so sice we have been married we have both small
and large dogs..
The old English is the only large breed we breed Yorshire Terriers and Papillons but I love many small
Breeds of dogs.
we breed our dogs for quality this is very important to know when getting a new puppy we are very particular
that our pups go to homes that love them as much as we do our pups are cheked by the vet and are have a bill of good health,,

Right now we have Our Boston Terrier
Truly an "All-American" dog, the Boston Terrier is a lively and highly intelligent
breed with an excellent disposition. Conveying an impression of determination, strength and activity, he is short-headed and
compactly built, and must be black, brindle or seal with white markings
A Look Back
Following the Civil War, the Boston
Terrier breed was developed in the stables of Boston, Massachusetts. An imported dog known as "Hooper's Judge" (sold to a
Boston man in 1870) became the ancestor of almost all true modern Boston Terriers.
The breed is an American creation,
resulting from a cross between an English Bulldog and a white English Terrier. In 1891, the breed became known as Boston Terriers,
taking the name of the city where they originated.
Right Breed for You?
The Boston has been nicknamed "the American
Gentleman" because of his dapper appearance, characteristically gentle disposition and suitability as companion and house
pet. They require only a moderate amount of exercise and a minimum amount of grooming. The breed is easy to train and they
are easy keepers, preferring to remain by their owner's sides.
