Great experience
"I found Amber Waves through the American Kennel Club when I was searching for a great Pyrénées puppy to add to our family. I was so pleased with the communication and all the Information that was offered by Debbie. She even sent me extra photos when asked as well as photos of the puppies parents. Our sweet little girl Teddi has proven to be an excellent puppy and addition to our family. She?s already following basic commands and has the sweetest mellow personality. We are already so in love."

First Time Pygmy Owners!

"Jim and Debbie were fantastic and took their time showing us around their amazing farm. We fell in love with two Pygmy does and two Pyrenees puppies! Debbie and Jim armed us with plenty of info, and even medications just in case as the day we brought our girls home was quite stormy. They PERSONALLY offer lifetime support for your Pygmies which is great knowing 30+ years of experience is just a phone call away! Thank you both for making a dream come true for us! I have always wanted these cuties!"
