Many times our dogs are wanted for a higher purpose - a family guardian, a service dog. 

We take our placements seriously.

At Skyview we value genetic diversity.  We have imported a total of four dogs and have shipped frozen semen from across the country and around the globe.  Introducing our newest imports ~~~ Nazik and Nikaia!!!! They came to us from Anne Hupel in France in January 2018.   Nazik became a Champion in June 2019!!  Nikaia became a Champion in November 2019!!  Both have passed their health testing!!!  We are delighted to have the genetic diversity and excellent examples of the breed for our program.
