and Guys Kennel
puppies come from Sharon Munk's "BJ and Guys" kennel. Her family-owned kennel is located in
Menlo Kansas. Sharon started out in 1976 as a hobby breeder of Norwegian
Elkhounds. Once she perfected her breeding skills, she branched out
with more of breeds she enjoyed. She became a professional breeder in 1978.
Sharon served on a special Governor-appointed Kansas Pet Animal Advisory
Board. This board was instrumental in keeping Kansas the healthiest
state from which to purchase pets.
Sharon's kennel is licensed and inspected by the state of Kansas, the
USDA and the American Kennel Club (AKC).
Sharon's kennel has never failed a USDA or AKC inspection.
Sire dogs are all DNA-tested. These DNA profiles are used for genetic
identity and parentage verification.
Many of Sharon's larger breeds are OFA hip certified. OFA or the
Orthopedic Foundation for Animals Inc. has a staff of experts who evaluate
radiographs of dogs and give certifications on hip joint confirmation.
Dogs rated as "passed" by OFA have a good chance to not pass along genetic
hip problems to off-spring.
Each puppy we receive comes with a pedigree or family history.
Usually, photos of each parent are included with this pedigree. You get this
pedigree when you take the puppy home.
