If you’re looking for a champion-breed bulldog, look no further than DK. These dogs come from a long line of competition canines and they have the pictures and ribbons to prove it. You can be placed on a waiting list for a purebred English bulldog or Frenchie. While bulldogs may look intimidating, they are sweet-natured and rarely bark. They can also be stubborn and spend most of the day snoring on the couch.

For a smaller breed of dogs, consider bringing home an American Kennel Club-registered purebred Yorkshire terrier or Maltese. Both of these regal lap dogs are feisty and intelligent. Yorkies are known for their long, straight coats and are often adorned with bows and other hair accessories. The Maltese is playful and great at learning tricks. Contact Wee-R-Yorkies & Maltese to find out when puppies are available.

For every dog lover in Orange County, you’ll find an equally avid cat lover. If you prefer a furry friend that purrs, you can find a handful of breeders in the area that specialize in certain species of cats. Halestone Savannahs offers savannah kittens that are already socialized and taught good house manners and litter habits. Savannah cats are unlike any other domestic felines. Bred from an African Serval and a Domestic Shorthair cat, savannahs are long and lean with tall ears and bold spotting on their coats. They are playful and active and make great additions to the family.
