About Us

Todd and Amy Issleib have been individually involved in purebred dogs since the early 1980's. It wasn't until they met in 1990 that they combined their interests to produce quality miniature pinschers with sound and correct movement. In 1996 their interest turned fully to their children. It was 1998 when they moved the family to Missouri and by 1999 they had three appaloosa horses. In 2002 they purchased their first Paso Fino horse. In late 2005 they started showing Miniature Pinschers again and saw their first German Pinschers. In 2007 they got their first "G.P." and started Temerity German Pinschers.

"Over the years we have been so blessed with good friends,
good dogs, good horses and a loving, supportive family."

Amy (Putnam) Issleib
In 1981, she was going to college in Southern California when she was given her first dog, a Doberman Pinscher. She got intersted in showing dogs. In 1984, she was working on a thoroughbred racehorse, breeding farm when she got her first Min Pin and started using the Ampns kennel name (replacing Sterling which she had started using in dobermans).
After a couple of years she started showing a few other toy breeds for various clients.
In the years to come she would co-own and co-breed many champion min pins with Connie Wick, Norma Cacka, Dawn Bonelli and Shan Howard.
In 1988 she went to work for Bill Shelton (a Professional Dog Handler known for his expertise in Dobermans and Giant Schnauzers). She also started showing Bluehen Miniature Pinschers for Norma Cacka.
She partnered with Shan Howard to start the Oshan line of Brussels Griffons and with Nelda Haun to help her breed and show champion Affenpinschers under Nelda's kennel name Siblu.
In 1990 she was socializing min pins at a dog show and met a young sailor named Todd Issleib. Things just got even better after that...
