Our clients love their dogs and have made them a part of their family from the moment they arrived in their home. They are proud to share pictures of the joy in their life. Please realize that I have over 20 years worth of pictures, so this is just a small part of our collection and we plan to change the pictures every few months. We hope you enjoy them with us.
Mary you are a great breeder! What you do and how you care for them shows in big ways! Thank you! We got three puppies over the summer from different breeders - there is no comparison, you are fantastic! You must have at least had the time to potty train the pups because out of the three yours was the only one that knew she was supposed to go outside. Thank you! Shannen L. - Califorina.
Carsten's Chihuahua's & Mary Carsten are A+. I've had chihuahuas for many years and experienced a variety of breeders. None compare to Mary. Mary is excellent to work with - from the initial inquiry to coordinating delivery and then checking in periodically after my puppy, LuLu, was getting settled. Mary provided all the expected paperwork and also a packet of information that included background on LuLu, a cd with pictures, and she also sent a a sweet puppy care package. My little LuLu is perfect. She's healthy, she's well adjusted, and its clear was well taken care of and loved before I got her. Mary was spot-on in her description of LuLu's disposition and temperament - I definitely got a sweet, calm, good-natured puppy. Thank you, Mary! You've laid a great foundation for LuLu in her forever home with me! Jane S. - Minnesota
Thank you for pkg. Thank you so much!!! Also, believe me, if I find anyone saying they want a Chihuahua I will be giving them your name. If all your puppies are like Chayela, you do an incredible job!!! To receive a new puppy that is basically house broken just doesn't happen. Chayela is a beautiful, cuddly, kissing machine. I absolutely LOVE her! Thank YOU!!! Heidi L. - Texas
We bought our third chihuahua from Mary about a year ago and we could not say enough positive things about our experience. You can tell right away the puppies are raised with a lot of love and care before they go off to their forever home. She sent a lot of pictures and videos of those first weeks before we received her and she even knew her name before we received her. As soon as we had a name picked out for her Mary started calling her by it so she would know it. The puppies are well socialized as well which is really nice. Mary really gives all of the puppies the best perfect start and sends a ton of information to get you started so you can make sure you raise a happy and healthy dog. I especially like the Facebook page so we can see pictures and posts of other pups related to ours, especially her brothers. I really think Mary breeds the cutest and sweetest chihuahuas and we feel incredibly lucky to have one. Melissa B. - California
I would highly recommend Mary Carsten’s chihuahuas. I got my little girl from her and she is wonderful! She is beautiful and very smart. I love that Mary's puppies are raised in her home, not a kennel. I think it makes all the difference!! My vet even said she is a happy healthy puppy. Birdie is the best part of each day; very loving and even though she is sometimes stubborn, I still love her temperament. I like that she is very protective of me. She loves to play and makes my family complete. Stephanie V. - Missouri
I got Sassi from Mary 13 1/2 years ago ! I couldn’t ask for a more living mild manner dog then Sassi ! The whole process of getting Sassi was a joy! We came down to meet Sassi's mom and dad, then came back and got Sassi at 10 weeks! The care and training that Mary provides is remarkable! We are getting our second fur baby from Mary next month. I’m so happy that we found Mary and her babies!!! Sassi was one of about 4,500 different sites and puppies that I looked at. Terri H. - Missouri.
When I started shopping for a dog for my son, I hadn’t even thought about a Chihuahua, but now I’m so glad I did. I made several calls and did many hours of research trying to find just the right puppy. I found a puppy from a wonderful breeder, and sealed the deal. Then, I received a call back from Mary Carsten. She began talking about her puppies and asked if she could send me a video. One look was all it took. I was seeing just about the most adorable little puppy ever. I couldn’t say no, and we ended up buying both puppies; one from another breeder and one from Mary. I could not ask for a better experience. The puppy arrived safe and sound to the airport, and in addition, a few days later, my son received a care package from Mary with a letter to my son as if written by our puppy. Even after the sale, and all has been said and done, Mary runs a Facebook group and we were able to see the family line of our little pup, plus meet other satisfied buyers. If you’re looking for a puppy, then start and end with Mary Carsten. Teresa L. - Connecticut
We Love Porcha she's Great! Everything regarding the process of getting her was very pleasant. Mary was great in allowing us to see how the dogs react in her home and that was important to us as well. The Carsten's love their Chihuahuas as anyone can see following them on facebook as I have for 3 years. They get lot's of love and care and that is very important! Tom W. - Michigan
When we lost our puppy and I was looking for someone that had Chihuahuas. We came across Mary and Robert Carsten‘s and we’re so happy we did, they are the most well mannered well tempered dogs and one of the smartest we have owned. They have the best well raised and lovable pups you would want. They do a great job! Darrel and Margaret F. - Missouri
We were lucky enough to get one of Mary Carsten’s little girl pups, Stella. I can’t emphasize enough how important the great start in life that Mary gives them is. Stella was lovingly raised with the other pups, and was socialized quite a bit when we got her. I am convinced that is why she gets along so well with other dogs. She is a beautiful, healthy, loving little girl. We are thinking about adding a male to our home, and I wouldn’t go to anyone else but Mary Carsten. As I write this Stella is curled up in my lap. She is a cuddler. We couldn’t ask for a sweeter, more loved little girl!!! Can’t imagine life without her. Thank you, Mary!! Kellie H. - Washington
This is our dog Creels Lil Aubie One. We got him from Mary in 2010. He is the best dog ever. He loves being with the family, traveling, walking and even playing with the cats. He is very smart and loves to do tricks especially when he gets a treat for them. Thanks Mary Eileen C. - Georgia
When we got our Chihuahua from Mary I didn't realize all I was getting! Not only did the puppy arrive wonderfully to Texas but we got a whole care package of information from Mary. We received a wonderful letter telling us about our pup and all the things he had been up to and how to care for him. We also joined a puppy play group on FB to keep up with all his siblings. We will definitely be adopting from Mary again! Robin H. - Texas
When we first saw a picture of Annie on Mary's website we was in love. She was even more adorable in person! She's truly an all around great Chihuahua. Non aggressive and doesn't have the 'bad' personality traits that a lot of other Chihuahua's have. She came socialized. Use to cats and dogs. Loud noises from normal daily house hold. Lots of hugs and kisses too. Mary even starts 'housebreaking' the puppies. They go outside and learn from the adults what to do. So it was a whole lot easier to house break lol. Annie came with all her shots up to date and Mary stays in contact with you even after you buy a puppy/puppies from her. Mary truly is a good hearted breeder/friend. Buy her puppies with confidence and you won't be disappointed. We will be buying another puppy from Mary in the future! Susan and Matthew, - Illinois
When we decided to get a Chihuahua Carsten Chihuahuas came very highly recommended to us. We really loved and respected the way that Mary had certain and very reasonable requirements before she lets you purchase one of her wonderful puppies! Mary really breeds beautiful healthy pups in her litters. We are blessed to have two brothers from her line. Our vet said our dogs came out of great stock and are very very healthy! Thanks Mary for allowing us to have two of your precious babies . Terrye O. - Missouri
By the way She is FANTASTIC, and Scott and I have been considering getting her playmate since she LOVES other dogs and loves the small dog park I have never seen a better natured Chihuahua!!!!!! Kellie and Scott - Texas
I am sitting here looking at my beautiful, well behaved girls... I'm SO glad I found you. You are exactly how every dog breeder should be- involved, loving, easy to talk to and fun! I wish people could SEE just how superior the temperament/personality in your chihuahuas are compared to the "Chihuahua stereotype!"Chloe looks like Gavin completely. She's talkative (yes, when she doesn't like something she moan/talks about it) and she looooooves to be held and cuddled.Daisy May looks like Dot but her markings are exactly like Gavin's. She is a bit more feisty and takes the dominant role, for sure! She's the kisser. Always wants to be somewhere kissing someone. And she's also the one who listens to commands. She can predict what's going on by observing our routines at home.. I am amazed at what good little dogs I have- I've not come across many who are this calm and personable.Thank you. Keep doing what you are doing. You are blessing families with amazing companions! Elizabeth R. Indiana
