About Us

Located in Arlington, WA, in the beautiful Pacific Northwest, Desperado Leonbergers is owned by Leonberger Enthusiast, Lori Taft. Passionate about preserving Leonberger breed characteristics and producing healthy, well-socialized puppies, Lori started Desperado’s breeding program in 2005, and has been an active ambassador and educator of Leonbergers ever since. In addition to being listed by the Leonberger Club of America as one of its member breeders, Lori is recognized by the American Kennel Club as a Breeder of Merit for going above and beyond on health issues, temperament, genetic screening, and the individual care and placement of puppies in responsible homes.

“As a breeder, my goal is to breed for type, health and temperament. My motto is ‘Quality, Not Quantity’,” said Lori. This holds true as Desperado Leonbergers breeds no more than 2 carefully planned litters per year.
