Our Zuchon Babies

Hi Carolyn, just wanted to let you know that Winston went to the vet on Wednesday and all went great! He weighed in at 3.2 pounds. She said his hernia is really small and can be fixed later on when he is neutered if needed, just like you said. 

Winston is just the best! So smart and loves to play and play! He is totally potty trained in the house. I have a puppy pad by each door, as well as in his play pen. Anytime he has to go he just heads over to one of the puppy pads. No accidents in days which is so surprising. He loves his play pen and will go right in there to eat, drink and sleep. I'll send a few pictures. He is too cute! We are so in love with our little guy!  October 13, 2022

Good morning!

I just wanted to give you a quick update on Ruby. She is fantastic and is adjusting well. Ruby just loves her BIG brother (75 lb lab) and he has been so gentle and patient with her. She’s sleeping in her kennel from 9-5 waking once for a potty break. She is having fun playing with her new toys and exploring her new home. Claire is so in love with her and is the best little dog mommy I know. 💕
We all are so pleased with the new addition to our family!

Hi Carolyn! 

Joanne and I just want to thank you so much for letting us adopt Ariel and Leroy. We could not be happier with the whole experience starting with meeting you and your husband!

We had asked you if we could come and visit your home where the Mom’s and Dad’s were raised even knowing you didn’t have any puppies for us to see.  You were so open and receptive to that and other breeders said we could not visit, they would send pictures.

Upon meeting you both,  and seeing how the dogs were part of your home, we knew Cavern Hill was our choice for a puppy.  

When you called in August and told us that one of Ariel’s puppies was available, we were ecstatic!  You told us that Ariel would be ready to go home with us when the puppy was ready – what a wonderful situation!

We can not tell you how happy we are with the new additions to our household which already has two small dogs.  They all get along beautifully and Ariel is the perfect Mother!  She brings Leroy toys, washes his face all the time and sleeps beside him in a bed next to his kennel.  Our vet has pronounced LeRoy to be the “perfect puppy”

Leroy and Ariel are both so sweet and love to kiss and sit on our laps – they are true joys and you trained them well!  

Thank you again and we will continue to send pictures!

Hi Carolyn,

Now that Chip is almost 7 months I thought I’d write and give you an update. First, he is the love of my life. I absolutely adore him. Everyone that sees him has to stop and comment on how cute and energetic (that’s putting it mildly) his is. I’ve been told that I should audition him for commercials  He feels his role in life is to be adored by one and all, and he is. 

He is extremely smart and very quick and intuitive. I joke and say he should be in doggy Mensa. He does have a little stubborn streak, but he’s a good boy overall. As soon as he got his rabies shot we started walking outside. Within 10 days he was completely housebroken. He tells me when he has to go outside, when he’s hungry or thirsty and haven’t put his food down. He eats twice a day now and he’s about 11 1/2 lbs. 

He knows the name of each of his toys and if I tell him to go get a particular one he’ll nose around in his toy box until he finds it. He understands so much that I can’t even list it all. 

He is brilliant. He’s be content to be scratched and petted all day long. He got his first ‘big boy grooming’ a few weeks ago and he looks great.

He has been THE best and sweetest boy in the whole wide world!  Children adore him, and of course I spoil him to pieces as you knew I would!  Thank you soooo much for the gift of his life and love to me!

Hi Carolyn,


Thank you so much for the pictures of our new addition "Mindy". It is so nice to be able to watch her growth from birth until the time we can bring her home. She's  adorable and we can't wait. We are all so excited! It will be so great for her big sister "Emma" to have a playmate and it is so cool that they have the same Mom and Dad. They will truly be sister.

Emma is such a wonderful dog. She really loves playtime  but will also always snuggleanytime someone feels like snuggling with her. She's such a pretty little girl and so smart. She was so easy to house train, especially when we figured out that she was trying to tell us she had to go out by pacing back and forth in front of the glass doors on our entertainment center. I was pretty sure you had sliding glass doors leading outside, but it was still comical to us when you confirmed it almost two years later. We could tell she received a lot of love and attention during her first couple months of life because she was very friendly and comfortable with everyone from day one.

We have never had any health problems with Emma. She really did aquire the best traits from both parents. Soooo, my family has become great fans of Zuchons. Your husband was absolutely right. They're the perfect dog in every way. We love Emma so much and could not be happier except when we get to bring Mindy home

Thank you so much for our girls!!!

 Dear Carolyn,

I am writing to tell you that I have owned many dogs, and have bred a few too, but your puppy, now mine, is by far the most well adjusted pup I have ever met. He was a joy on the ride home, (even stuck in heavy traffic for an extra 1  1/2 hrs) even ate his dinner and peed on the paper you provided.  That first night I put him in the crate and covered it with a light blanket, told him shhhhhhh and he slept through the night without a peep till 7. Then I put him in our x-pen and he peed and pooped. He has the best temperament and funny disposition and it seems as if he's been ours from day one.  He, is eager to please and learned to sit in one day.  Second night was the same. He has a wonderful recall, no matter who calls him. Thank YOU for that. He is wonderful with my 3 and 2 year old grandchildren, running after them and playing tug of war with their socks! I took him to my Vet today and he's up to 3 lbs at 9 weeks and she was very impressed with his good health. (And his pedigree and registration). I am so lucky to have called you at the perfect time. We are so thrilled with our new baby. Thank you again and again. I have absolutely no qualms about referring you to the world !

Coco has been a dream! Thank you so much! She goes everywhere with me and I have given at least 20 people your info. Thank you for a great experience and the perfect puppy! I hope all is well!

Sep 5 (3 days ago Thought you might like to see Maggie at 8 months. We were out on golf course for our nightly walk. She has completed her beginner Obedience class and I think we will do an Agility class next before coming back to obedience. She is such a happy dog and never meets anyone she doesn't like. Thank you again for raising such great dogs. Anna Joiner


Dear Carolyn,

Our family is so incredibly in love with our new puppy, Brady we purchased from Cavern Hill Zuchons. He has brought our family so much joy already and he's only 6 months old!

We cannot express our gratitude for your willingness and ability to arrange for Brady's delivery to our house on Cape Cod on Christmas Eve for my daughter who has several health issues.

We would also like to mention that Brady is the most lovable, intelligent an loyal puppy. His vet said he is extremely healthy as well.

Someday, we may want to get Brady a brother or sister and the Zuchon is the only breed for us!

Thank you so much!

Fantastic breeder that cares deeply about her Zuchons and future puppy owners. Carolyn sends photos of your pup from birth until its time for pick up. Puppy is very happy and healthy and came with loads of information for a smooth transition into a new home. She has also been very responsive to any questions. I would highly recommend Carolyn and one of her adorable pups.

It was wonderful meeting you and seeing your lovely home. Thought I would send you an update on little miss Dalia. Her visit to the vet went very well and they were most impressed with the information you included in the packet. She weighed 2.4 pounds and is scheduled for her next round of shots in about 3 weeks. 

Dalia is adjusting to her new home very well. As a she has become more comfortable, her personality has shone forth! She is very playful, energetic and inquisitive, but also very loving. She has adjusted to her play pen very well. In other words, we think she is perfect!

One question…how much should she be eating now? I am leaving food out for her all day, but she eats no more than one third cup a day. She seems to be satisfied and her bathroom habits are normal. 

Thanks again for raising such a cutie!
