John 3:16

Award for



1 Corinthians 13:4-7 NIV

4Love is patient, love is kind.  It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.  5It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.  6Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.  7It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

Welcome to AMAYLA KENNELS!  We raise and show Italian Greyhounds and Xoloitzcuintle in Central Texas.

Our home was severely damaged in a house fire in October of 2013.  Praise the Lord, we survived the fire and the insurance claim/rebuild process and we are now living in our beautiful new home!  Now, if we can just get everything organized and back to "normal" it will be totally amazing.  Thank you so much to everyone who donated money or dog supplies to help us get back on our feet right after the fire.  It really meant the world to us and we know that we are truly blessed to have great friends and family.  We will be working on our site over the next couple months to get all of our pages updated.  Keep checking back for upcoming litters and our show win pictures.

Our beautiful home was severely damaged by a house fire on October 31st, 2013.  Praise the Lord, we heard the smoke detector and all (including the dogs!!!) got out safely.  We are now working through the insurance claim process and getting our home rebuilt.  We do however, have several puppies available including some show prospects but we are not able to get to emails quickly or answer all phone calls.  My cameras were destroyed in the fire along with all the new puppy pictures on them.  My iPhone did survive so we will be taking new pictures of these puppies soon and getting them up here on the "Our Puppies" page.  Please try to call Paul first at (254) 977-4915 and then Amy at (254) 967-3206.  We do have some access to our email but it is mostly in the evenings.


Lilly is one of my puppies out of Flower and Saber although she is a year younger than Scimmy. My daughter and Lilly got their first win in Dallas, TX in early July 2011 and she finished her grand Championship in August 2012.  My daughter has trained and shown Lilly all by herself since Lilly was 6 weeks old.  =o)  We are very proud of both our daughter and Lilly!! Many, many thanks to Deb Dierking for all her help in showing us how to train and handle Lilly and Scimmy for the dog shows.   New updates will be posted on a new show page here on my site.

UPDATE:  Lilly finished her Grand Champion title in Southaven, MS at the Memphis Toy Dog Specialty taking Best of Breed for a 4 point major win.  She has been trained and handled exclusively by my daughter Kayla through every point she's ever earned.  We are so very proud of both of them and their success in the ring!!  We will breed her next year and we just can't wait to see what her babies will do in the ring!!! 

GCH CH Marchwind New Year's Resolution

We bought this beautiful boy from Lois March M.D. and he has been an absolute joy to work with!!  He finished his Championship in just three consecutive weekends and took two Group 2 placements in Best Puppy competitions during those weekends.  He also took Best of Opposite Sex in the Sweepstakes at the IG Specialty in Houston, TX in July 2012.  We call him Rezzy and he was a dream for Kayla to train.  She even uses him for her Junior Showmanship competitions starting when he was 7 months old.  He still loves being in the ring and everything to do with being a show dog.  Kayla and Rezzy will again be heading to Orlando, FL in December 2013 to compete in Junior Showmanship at the Eukanuba National dog show and she has also qualified to compete in Junior Showmanship in New York at the Westminster Dog Show at Madison Square Gardens.


Scimmy is one of my puppies out of Flower and Saber. He got his first major win in June in Colorado Springs, CO and it was a 4 point Major!!!  He showed really well and was in such a good mood that day. 

UPDATE:  Scimmy has finished his conformation title so he is a Champion of record with AKC!!!  He finished with 4 major wins.  We are very proud of him and his success.


All of our Border Collies are registered with the American Border Collie Association.  Our focus in raising this wonderful breed is intelligence and working ability.  We do not register them with AKC because we believe they are a working breed and that working ability, not conformation, should be the main breeding standard.


All of our Italian Greyhounds are registered with the American Kennel Club.  We strive for great conformation in our breeding program but we also want to produce loving and extremely social family members.
