Quail Ridge Kennels began operations in September of 1995. In the beginning our goal was and still today is to provide sound, healthy, happy, quality puppies to our customers. Hello, my name is Sherry. I am a 61 year old wife and mother of two boys, Toby age 29 and Matthew age 24. My husband Paul and I have been married for 40 years and have made our home on our 120 acre farm for the past 38 years. In our spare time we enjoy camping with family and friends and riding our horses. Since childhood I have been awe struck with animals. As a child growing up in a residential neighborhood I would kidnap our neighbors pets and hide them out in our basement, loving and playing with them until their owners came knocking at our door. My junior and senior years of High School and 2 years following, I worked as a Vet Tech. During this time I devoted all of my free time to riding and showing American Quarter Horses. Shortly after marrying I completed a full year of Computer Science courses. In order to support my animal habit I entered the world of Accounting. I worked as a bookkeeper for 20 years. In addition to my bookkeeping practice I patented a product and started a company that marketed the product nationwide. I sold my company in 2000. I now have the best job in the world. My life has come full circle. I have a wonderful family and home. My kennel facilities where I get to love and play with puppies is a few steps above our old basement. My husband Paul retired in May of 2009 after 27 years as a natural gas compressor mechanic. His title here at the kennel is Head of Maintenance or simply Mr. Fix It. Since retirement he spends a good deal of time washing down runs, feeding and watering and just playing with the dogs. Paul and his sidekick Jack enjoy long rides around the farm on the golf cart, big bowls of popcorn an old Westerns on the TV. Toby, our oldest son is a graduate of Arkansas Tech University - Ozark Campus and is currently working in Odessa Texas. He is the father of the most amazing little boy, Trent and the sweetest little girl Gabby. They are the light of mine and Pop's life. Uncle Bear aka Matt is also pretty fond of the Wee People. Matthew is working for the US Forest Service as a Network Administrator while earning his Bachelor's Degree in Information Technologies at the University of Arkansas. Anything electronic, he has it covered. He is the electronics/technical advisor to our kennel. At age 12 he was building new computers using salvaged old computer parts. Matthew is also a major player of puppies.
