"Why Rufnit Kennels, LLC...
There are several appealing components of your breeding program!!
One of the most appealing is being able to see what your breeding stock has accomplished
in addition to being able to see what their progeny are accomplishing!
I found this of the utmost importance since I'm not acquiring your stock, but I am acquiring their progeny...
 my decision was confirmed, we couldn't be happier with our Rufnit Companion!!
Shari, Thanks so much!"

First and foremost my congratulations to you, Shari, with your dogs running trials and all the young ones that have been tested through NAVHDA you have an excellent breeding program.  Without question you, Shari, have made some very judicious choices.  Your young ones taking the NAVHDA test, they are very good looking dogs.
You, Shari, have united the best lines that we have created to date.
I am glad that the US started from a great base and you will have the best BB's yet!

It has come to the point where our progeny success has created the desire for others to
perform various infringements and imply that they are affiliated with Rufnit Kennels, LLC.

Plagiarism and imitation are the ultimate forms of compliment,
but Rufnit Kennels, LLC believes the public should be aware of what is and is not
a part of our elite Braque du Bourbonnais enterprise.

It is encouraged to contact us personally before trusting such information and insinuations.
