Hi , I'm Daryl with Legacy Puppies
My parents owned the business ABA Kennels. I have some stock from there kennel and have decided to breed dogs myself. I was raise with them breeding for over 25 years. My mother Judy Moore taught me almost every thing I know about taking care of the dogs from vaccinating to due claw removal and tail docking. I also breed some different varieties like beagles, pugs, malshipoos, maltipoo's, and a few other breeds I'm experimenting with. If your intrested in a certain breed that you would like to breed contact me at legacypuppies@gmail.com

Unfortunately ABAKennels closed in August, 2013. Sadly its owner, Terry Moore, passed away in January following heart surgery. Terry asked me to come to work with him in 2009 when his beloved wife, Judy, passed away. It was an easy decision to join my Uncle Terry in the puppy business. Even though he and I were uncle and nephew, we were the same age and thought of each other as brothers. I had a degree in Animal Science from N. C. State University, but had been working with computers for many years. I grew up on a farm caring for lots of livestock and pets and had grown tired of being cooped up in an office all day. Terry taught me so much about how to run a dog breeding kennel. During these past four years I have administered vaccinations, medications, and wormers, assisted with breeding adult dogs, assisted with puppy births, and of course helped feed, groom, exercise, and socialize all of the dogs and puppies at ABAKennels.

Since ABAkennels was closed, I had to decide whether to go back into computer work or start a breeding business of my own. Once again it was an easy decision to choose working with dogs over computers! Terry's family graciously gave me some of his best parent dogs to help me start my own kennel. I have been working hard to build a breeding business that produces healthy, happy, playful, and loving pets.

Please visit my website at: CMooreCutePuppies.com or email me at CMooreCutePuppies@gmail.com. I would love to help you find just the right puppy for your family!

We spent several weeks searching for a rescue and could not find a small dog anywhere. None of the rescue organizations responded to our e-mails and applications. They did not list phone numbers. Then we switched our search to find a designer dog breeder and located ABA. What a wonderful experience. Isabella, our malti-poo is two years old and has been an absolute delight. Easy to train, very friendly. Cute as a button! I still look at ABA's website every so often to admire all the beautiful puppies available there. Don't look any further for a great small dog with awesome service.

P.S. Very sadly, since we got Izzy, Judy has passed away. Terry and his family continue to run this wonderful kennel. While I know they are very sad, Judy has left them with a fabulous legacy to remember her by.

If you're looking for a pure bred or "designer" puppy go to google and search for local rescue groups. You wouldn't believe the number of these types of dogs that are turned into rescue, even to local shelters. Yes, even the little fru-fru dogs get turned into shelters.

There are puppies and adult dogs waiting in rescue foster homes to be adopted. Dogs in shelters aren't so lucky. When their time runs out they get killed.

Did you know when you adopt one of these type dogs (or any other for that matter) from a shelter or rescue group that the fee INCLUDES spay/neuter? Fees at a shelter are rarely above $100. Fees at a rescue can go up to $200 but remember, that includes spay/neuter and usually the pet is microchipped.

Support a backyard breeder or adopt a rescue dog / shelter pet. The choice is yours.

I have had my toy poodle for two months. He is doing great so far, very sweet, smart, and health. Though it took me hours of driving to get the puppy, I think everything worth it.Almost all of my friends that had seen him said he was a really great dog. If budget and time allowed, i would have bought another toy poodle from terry, so the brothers would stay together^^

I should have written this review and show my appreciation to terry long time ago. Because i have so much to thank for that i never thought i was prepared to write a review.

Thank you, Terry, for giving me such a great puppy and answering all my questions and concerns. I definitely will go to you again if i need a second, a third and even a forth puppy:)

Terry- wanted to let you know that CJ the Maltipoo is doing great. Vet was pleased with the number of wormings and vaccinations. Will continue to recommend you to others. Was in Petland at Arboretum last night, and they import their dogs from Missouri and ask over $1000.00 for these crosses. Thanks for all the help and patience.

When I began looking for dogs last year, I found the process overwhelming. After the first time I spoke with Judy, I knew that I had found the right place to buy my dog. My Maltipoo Lola is the absolute queen of my house. She is the best dog I could have ever imagined. Anytime someone mentions they are looking for a new pet, I always tell them to look no further than Aba.

Judy was extremely helpful over the phone - helping me choose what breed, etc. We drove down from DC to pick up the puppy and were very impressed with Terry and Judy's thoughtful advice and kind words. They are fantastic breeders who really care about the dogs. So far our pomapoo Winston has been a great addition to the family - we get tons of compliments every time we walk him and he's already learned a variety of commands (in 2 weeks time)! We are EXTREMELY pleased. Judy and Terry are excellent breeders - we would recommend them to anyone.

Terry and Judy were extremely gracious and helpful in making our dream of 2nd puppy come true. We recently purchased a little baby girl Malti-shih we named Tinkerbelle, and they answered all our questions, responded quickly, and were very knowledgeable about dog breeding and care. We would be very comfortable purchasing another puppy from them in the future.

Miss Judy helped me make my choice since I am a first time puppy owner. She stayed with me step by step and I am now the happy owner of Daphne a chocolate peekapoo. Judy still answers any questions I have even after the purchase was complete. The Aba Kennels made sure she arrived safely (via courier) and without stress. I appreciate Judy for helping me choose the right pup for my family and I'd recommend them for anyone searching for that "perfect" family member of their own. I know if I choose to add to my family at a later date I know where to go (Miss Judy). God Bless them for taking such wonderful care and providing much love for all of their pups while waiting for their journey to their new homes!
