Emerald Acres

Our involvement with purebred dogs began in 1974. We purchased a Yorkshire Terrier named Weiter as a household pet when my daughter, Tricia, asked for a Yorkie and that spunky little dog captured my heart. Soon I became actively involved in the breed.

In the beginning, we wanted to use our initials for our kennel name... P.P.S. But when folks tried to pronounce them as one word we decided on using Emerald Acres as a tribute to our Irish heritage.

Since then, we have produced many AKC Champion Yorkshire Terriers.

In 1979 my other daughter, Seaneen, asked for a Golden Retriever, and our love affair with the breed was instantaneous. Our foundation female was Easy, a Breeze daughter and granddaughter of the historic Ch. Misty Morn's Sunset CD, TD, WC.

Goldens proved to be a much more difficult breed to excel in than Yorkies! Early problems with health issues forged the platform I still stand on today. Nothing is more important than good health, either to a breeder or to a pet owner. Success in competition was slow in coming, but we have to date produced champions in three different countries.

We remain committed to excellence in these two breeds, and our priorities will always be to produce physically and mentally sound dogs with delightful temperaments and outstanding personalities that are a joy to live with.



Emerald's Way to Go Guy


Guy is a Bree/Johnny son, born on December 7, 2012. He has been living with our family since he was 8 weeks old and is being offered as a fully trained adult. He is well socialized to other dogs, living with two females and another adult male golden. He has a sweet disposition and is very affectionate. His energy level is moderate to calm great in the house, but playful outside. Guy is fully house trained, crate trained, knows several tricks, walks on a leash, and loves to ride in the car. His absolute favorite activity is swimming and retrieving a ball, whether in the swimming pool or at the dog beach! With a little extra specialized training, you could quite possibly make him into an excellent therapy, hospice, seizure or any working dog you might like, he is that smart. If you think Guy would be a good fit for your family, please give us a call.
