I got my beloved wheaten terrier from Marie Larkin in 2001 and lost him almost six months ago. He brought me much joy and was the love of my life. However, I would discourage anyone from purchasing a dog from her. Christo was diagnosed with epilepsy at age 7, which may or may not be a result of puppy mill breeding. What is a result of bad breeding is the degenerative myelopathy he was diagnosed with. He carried both mutations of the gene as a result of breeding two parents who were carriers. Over the course of a year I watched him progressively lose the use of his back legs, ultimately dying of a blood clot related to the paralysis. This was truly heartbreaking, no wheaten deserves such a fate, and nobody should have to watch someone succumb to this disease.
I bought a westie from her in 2000, she lived almost 10 years. She started out very aggressive, but never had any major health issues. She was such a beautiful dog. I was very happy with her but again she had temperament problems early on. She turned out to be my favorite dog of all my dogs. I lost her in 2010, I'm still missing her.
Beware! – We purchased an adorable Yorkie from Marie in 2008.
Our puppy would not eat on his own and had to be hand fed. Ultimately we found out that our beloved puppy has inoperable liver problems. He is on a low protein diet, but must take medicine daily. His long term prognosis is not great, but we love our dog so much we would not give him up. Marie offered to take him back, but we were already bonded with our puppy, so we're staying the course.
I would not recommend purchasing a puppy from Marie Larkin.
Marie Larkin Emerald Puppies a must! – Marie Larkin Emerald Puppies is a wonderful breeder. She devotes her entire life in making sure her puppies are happy and healthy. Its hard to give any breeder a paws up of approval, but Marie is one of the best of the best!!! You are not "buying" her puppies, she is adopting them out to you. You go through a very extensive interview and she helps you pick out the puppy that is right for you. She is very invested in the pups emotionally and keeps welcomed contact with all of her puppy families. I cannot speak highly enough of this breeder! If you want to get a Yorkie...she's the person you need to call!
Thankful to have met Marie Larkin – My husband and I have wanted a Wheaten for years. We had looked and looked, and they were not easy to find. I finally learned about Celtic Irish Puppies. I quickly learned that I could trust Marie Larkin's company from her prompt service. Every question that I had, she responded to right away. Marie made the whole process so easy so I could just await my puppy. We love our Percy! Thank you!
Celtic Irish Puppies is recommended highly! – Celtic Irish Puppies has the best and cleanest facilities I have ever seen. They take such great care of all of their dogs/puppies and you can really tell the level of care by the setup they have. I would recommend Celtic Irish Puppies to anyone considering a yorkie or wheaten. Marie Larkin is dedicated to the breeds and educating owners/potential owners about the breeds. She is always willing to take the time to make sure everything necessary is known before purchasing a puppy/dog. Furthermore, she always is willing to help yorkies/wheatens in need and their owners whether they were one of his puppies or not. Any good breeder will care about the dog for the life of the pet, and I have seen Marie show this level of care. Highly recommend!
We love our Lola! – Our Wheaton Lola is almost one year old and is the love of our life. We're so thankful for Marie Larkin of Celtic Irsih Puppies! She was so kind and a great person!
I have had Wheaton's for years, Lola is our third and is the best dog I've ever owned. She's not just perfect in looks and coat, her personality is outstanding - literally. She is happy, joyful, friendly and outgoing. I take her everywhere with me and people are astounded by her nature. Happy, happy, joy, joy.
Celtic Irish Puppies gave me a great puppy! – New York, NY Any dog lover knows what it's like to live with, LOVE, and then even after a long life, lose them!!! OUCH!!......when it comes time to find another, Marie Larkin at Celtic Irish Puppies is the person to go to. For me, it was the YORKIE-and MARIE's family raises them in IRELAND where breeding standards are strictly enforced- NO PUPPY MILLS She has been bringing dogs from IRELAND for 40 yrs.,and is extremely caring and well versed in all aspects of nutrition and training...give her a call,and she will help you find your new best friend!
Great Experience – 8 years ago we picked up our wonderful little Maggie, who is an Irish Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier. Marie came highly recommended by our vet who has two of her Westies.
Maggie has been such a wonderful addition to our family. She loves everyone and everything and has been healthy from day one. Our vet told us he had several of Marie’s puppies in his practiced so he was not been surprised that she is such a healthy specimen of her breed.
The highlight of our visit to Ireland in 07 was visiting the family where she was raised and meeting her parents.
When we decided she needed a little brother, we contacted Marie again and now have Riley who is almost 8 months and he is just as wonderful.
I highly recommend Marie. Over the years we have met several people in town who have purchased Cavaliers and Wheatens from her with the same positive results.
A wolf in a sheeps clothes dont let her fool you! – I bought a west highland terrier from marie 2 years ago. My last name is omalley so she used her celtic background and brogue to beguile me. she also spun a tale of my puppies origin and birthplace to be at a farm in ireland with her son. A crib in her living room is where i first fell in love with what would become my childrens heartache and my devote loyalty to a very sick puppy. she is a scam artist and a very crafty liar in disguise as an old irish grandmother. after more than 2000 dollars in bills for kennel cough parasites and a breeding disorder called lions jaw, we are just as much in love with our baby as day one.. shame on you marie,a marauder, a sheep in lambs clothes for an extra penny. how do you sleep at night?It is my belief that one day, what you call your living, will come back to haunt you....in hopefully the cruelest way possible.P.S. Dr weinstein for you to back up this heartless villain makes you equally as guilty to get your business from perpetuating ill puppies to exist. you are both despicable.
