We are Diana and Sean Heathcote. We are located in sunny southern California in the city of Palmdale.
It all started with two dogs. Our first Löwchen, Balki aka Monster and our Giant Schnauzer, Sherman GCHB Skansen's Hbo RN FDC CGCA CGCU TKE TT.
Balki came into our lives in 2005. He taught us how amazing the Löwchen breed is. He lived to the age of 15.5 years old and lived everyday like it was an adventure that was to be celebrated.
Sherman was our first show dog. We got him July 2010. We have had many firsts with him, from our First Champion and Grand Champion to our first #2 Giant Schnauzer, #1 male Giant Schnauzer in the USA. He started our love of the conformation ring. He still loves to show and compete for titles even as senior.
We got Freya on November 28, 2016 from Alicia Schmidt and Kim Schmidt of Kiji Kennels. Freya is exceeding our expectations in the show ring and as a mother. We are so thankful to Alicia and Kim for entrusting us with her and having them apart of our Löwchen family and future.
Diana is currently serving on the board of the Löwchen Club of America as Pacific Director and enjoys being involved in the club and promoting the breed.
