About Sue and Lou LeCalsey

sue louLou and Sue bought their first Doberman Pinscher back in 1983 and started to show them in 1985.  We decided to downsize to Boston Terriers  (Lou was raised with them as a teenager) after Sue had back surgery.  And we bought our Foundation Bitch Jolie during the summer of 2000.  Jolie was shown in AKC shows, to become a Champion.

Jolie’s registered name is Ch Bleugras Jolie` Of Buena Vista, CGC, ROM* Jolie had 3 litters totaling 10 puppies, with 6 becoming AKC Champions.  I have finished to date 15 home bred Champions, mostly out of the Bred By Exhibitor class.  Jolie turned 12 years old on 2/5/12 and is still in great health.  She is now my little gray faced lady and still loves to play with puppies.

I usually have 1 or 2 litters a year and keep pick of the litter to show and then continue on in my breeding program.  The rest of the puppies are sold as pets on a spay/neuter contract to approved homes.  

I am involved in Health Testing of my Bostons and register those results with OFA for public review.  I do the CERF Eye Exam and the BAER Hearing test on all puppies between 10 and 12 weeks of age before leaving for their new homes.
I ask new owners to have their Patella’s examined when they reach 1 year of age.  I retest patella’s bi-annually and Cerf’s annually on all my Bostons.  I have also tested DNA for Juvenile Hereditary Cataracts on each of the dogs used in my breeding program and to date we do not carry that gene.  All of my dogs are micro-chipped for permanent identification prior to any health testing.

I presently serve as a Board Member for the Boston Terrier Club of Milwaukee, where I have been a member since 2002. We joined the Boston Terrier Club of America in 2001 and in 2003 I was asked to join the Health Committee , where I Chair their Health Certification Program.  We are also members of the Packerland Kennel Club in Green Bay, joining in 1997. We were members of the Doberman Pinscher Club Of America from1986 through 2006.  I sell premium quality dog food, so I am set up as an LLC business.
