TIMSHELL FARM – in Texas and Arizona

The Texas address is our business address. Semi-retired, we divide our time between Texas and Arizona. While in Arizona, we work on our new “Pause for Paws” non-profit group to help get therapy and service dogs to volunteers and organizations that work with people in need. This can be at-risk children having suffered abuse; patients in hospitals and hospice settings; schools; library reading programs, etc. We are proud to have started work with Gabriel’s Angels in Phoenix, AZ. If you are a therapy worker and need a service dog, contact us and we’ll help match you with a great companion to join you in this important work.



Steve Rogers succeeded at startup and operation of several businesses; traveled across the U.S. as a Project Manager for major environmental engineering companies to manage multi-million dollar remediation contracts; and started/operated Timshell Farm. Steve established a beautiful, organic pecan orchard in central Texas, as well as building and operating our quality dog raising for specialty triple-crossbreed puppies. Steve owned and operated a very successful transmission specialty repair shop in Boulder, Colorado for 8 years, AAA Boulder Transmissions, and was voted Mechanic of the Year by Boulder residents in 1985. In 2001, Steve built our lovely pole-barn house on the farm, having never built anything besides a set of bookshelves! This home was built by hand, completely by Steve (including all plumbing, wiring, air conditioning, carpentry, the works!) Photo above, left. House was built with 90% recycled materials.

I worked as a technical editor and document manager for engineering firms; worked in the New Mexico State Senate and State Supreme Court; and co-authored butterfly breeding manuals with Nigel Venters and Paul Chesterfield. I enjoyed serving on the Board of Directors for the International Butterfly Breeders Association for a number of years. I love my current work now with my husband, Steve, with therapy dog organizations. Our son who resides in Texas manages the breeding program.

We have traveled together, and lived in many wonderful places like Santa Fe, New Mexico; Boulder, Colorado; Punaluu, Hawaii; New York; Houston, Texas, Corsicana, Texas and now Happy Jack, near Pine, Arizona. We have two grown sons, William and Matthew. Matt often works with us on the farm and loves the dogs and puppies. We have moved to the high mountains of Arizona and will add photos and information as time allows.
