Welcome to Oxford Kennels ! We are a small family kennel located just east of Atlanta on 16 acres. Our family has owned and bred purebred dogs for many years. Growing up my family’s focus was on Golden Retrievers while my husband bred German Shepherds. So both breeds are very special to us. We took some time off of breeding due to other obligations and are very happy to say that we are now able to resume our breeding again. With the addition of what we believe to be an exceptional German Shepherd our Athena will be our foundation dam.
Our mission is to breed to the highest breed standards possible while always striving to improve. All of our breedings require both parents be AKC registered and have OFA medical clearances. These OFA testings includes hips, elbows, heart and eyes. In addition to the OFA clearances we do additional DNA testing to make sure our dogs are clear of carrying genes that might predispose puppies to inherited diseases common to the breeds such DM (degenerative myelopathy). Health is of utmost importance to insure that our puppies live long, healthy lives. We want to assure our customers that every attention has been given to provide them with a healthy puppy. Equally, we place a very high focus on temperament, intelligence and conformation. Our puppies are socialized from the beginning which helps to establish wonderful family companions. We do minimal breeding. Our pups are a work of love for us. We are interested in finding family homes for them with the exception of a few that may go to show or specialty homes.
I am a member of the Conyers Kennel Club and sit on the Board of Directors. I am also a member of the Atlanta Golden Retriever Club.
Thank you you so much visiting our site !
