Why We Do What We Do... About Us:

In 2015, my husband and I adopted an American Staffordshire Terrier named Maxwell out of Butts County, Georgia through Survivor Tails Animal Rescue in Boston. Max was horrifically abused, underweight, and unaware of the love and compassion all animals are entitled to. After a life-saving surgery to repair a shattered femur, Maxwell began rehab and was required to walk on different surfaces and in crowds to gain his stability and confidence. I began walking Maxwell in downtown Boston so he could get used to the sounds and smells of the city. There, he learned that his confidence and good manners received attention from strangers, but his body still showed his scars of his horrific life before arriving in Boston. Max wore a slip-on bow tie over his collar in hopes to change the public perception of a "rough" looking dog. People loved him and his collection of bow ties! Every dog deserves the love and attention Maxwell received. Dog bow ties are creative ways to express your dog's personality. I hope your dog enjoys wearing their bow tie as much as I enjoyed making it!

I started Preppy Tails in 2017. My goal is to make accessories that feature your dog's unique personality regardless of size, breed, or age. I love seeing photos of your dog in their bow tie! If you have a custom request for a bow tie, please submit a custom request order. I'm happy to work with your vision to make something that meets you and your favorite four-legged friend's needs!

Maxwell passed away in October 2017 after a brief, but valiant, fight against an aggressive rare brain tumor. Although our time together was short, I am forever grateful to Survivor Tails Animal Rescue for their work in bringing Maxwell into my life. Therefore, 20% of ALL SALES will be donated to Survivor Tails Animal Rescue - a nonprofit 501c(3) organization committed to finding loving homes for abandoned, mistreated, or unwanted animals. Survivor Tails does not discriminate based on age, sex, or health status of any animal. There are many more stories like Maxwell's and there are many more dogs like Maxwell awaiting rescue in animal shelters across the country. Save a life and contact a local rescue organization for more information on how you can get involved.

Of course! Please contact me prior to your purchase to arrange for international shipping.
