We live on 10 acres off the Blue Ridge Parkway in North Carolina's beautiful High Country. With my Dad's unexpected passing we were reminded of how short life can be and decided to follow our dreams by starting our breeding program. In memory of my Father, John Michael Harrington, all of our AKC Registered dogs are named with the prefix JMH's. While working from home as a pharmacist and home schooling our children, we spoil our dogs and puppies throughout each day! Your new puppy will be given the love and nurture needed to go home well-socialized and ready to join your family!
Our parent dogs are from excellent bloodlines, have wonderful temperaments, and obtain extensive health clearances. Numerous hours are spent looking through Pedigrees and learning the quality and characteristics of our lines. At Above and Beyond Standards all of our dogs receive a complete panel of breed-recommended genetic tests and also have Heart, Hips, Eyes, Elbows, and Patellas evaluated by PennHIP or OFA if recommended for their specific breed. Our breeding goal is to produce beautiful, healthy companion puppies with exceptional temperaments. When purchasing a puppy from us you can be certain the health and temperament of your new puppy is Above and Beyond Standards. We provide all of our puppies with a 2-3 year Health Guarantee to support this.
