Our Story
Kys' Creekside Kennel is a small state & USDA-licensed kennel located on a 23 acre farm in southwest Missouri.  I am a Registered Nurse, Real Estate Agent and a Professional Dog Breeder.  My husband is an Inspector for Jasper County. We have 2 children that love to spoil the puppies and socialize with all of our dogs.   

Our dogs have lots of space to run, our kennel has more than double the space required by Missouri law. All of our dogs and puppies are petted and cared for every single day.  Lots of the pictures on this site were taken at the lake, where many of our dogs have vacationed with us.    Our sole mission is to provide loving families with healthy, well-socialized pets that will be cared for and treated like part of the family.
We do not support puppy mills!

We are inspected yearly by the State of Missouri, USDA, AKC and our veterinarian.  This is the LAW!  Do not do business with breeders that are not licensed.  All of our puppies are on a strict vaccination schedule.  They are all current on age-appropriate vaccinations and dewormings.  We also give our puppies preventative treatment for coccidiosis and giardiasis before they leave for their forever home.

All puppies are examined by a licensed veterinarian at 6 weeks of age and every 2 weeks thereafter.  Each puppy will be issued a Missouri Health Certificate before they are shipped.  Our puppies also come with a one year health guarantee that covers genetic/hereditary defects for one year from date of birth.

We are AKC Bred with H.E.A.R.T breeders, all of our adults are also OFA tested for breed-specific genetic issues to help ensure happy, healthy puppies!

 Shibas make great family pets.  Please research the breed and make sure that your new puppy will make a good fit for your family.
