We are Jack and Sally Phipps and our ranch is conveniently located 55 miles northeast of Dallas, in Leonard, TX.
We have always had a great love of animals, with an extraordinary passion for dogs. Twenty-five years ago we were very involved in Obedience Training with our Doberman Pinschers, and operated our own grooming business.

Rising Star Kennels began in 2005 when our granddaughter, Jamie, pleaded for a Yorkshire Terrier for her birthday. After our purchase, we discovered that the puppy simply was too much responsibility for a 10 year old with many academic activities. Therefore, little Gypsy came to live at Grandma and Grandpa's. The rest is history.
Rising Star Kennels is dedicated to producing healthy companions that are bred with particular attention to temperament, personality and beauty.

In addition to our beautiful American Great Danes, in 2012 we will be adding the majestic imported European, specifically German Great Dane, to our breeding program. Watch our breathtaking German Harlequin stud add his two cents to the kennel!

Thank you for visiting our web site.

Who knows . . .
perhaps your new companion is here waiting for you!
