Welcome to Mountain Crest Pomeranians.  We are

David and Carlene Gilstrap, located in South Eastern

Tennessee, Bradley  County, 20 miles north of Chattanooga.  

We have been breeding Poms for over 25 years. 

We're very proud of our accomplishments as we've  bred

over 100 champions, multiple Group winners,

Best in Specialty winners and Best in Show winners. 


We've always had a love for animals, that is actually how

we met some 50 years ago.  David had a horse boarded on

Carlene's father's farm, both teenagers at the time.  David

was a friend of Carlene's brothers who invited him  out for

a visit.  The rest is history. 


We lived in Middle Tennessee for a while where the neighbor's kidded and said they were going to put a sign at the post office "go to the Gilstrap's they feed well."  Stray animals seem, somehow,  to find our home and they are never turned away.  We now have 3 cats that just found us and have  been here for years.


Over the years we've been very involved in many dog organizations.  We are presently members of the Chattanooga Kennel Club, Greater Atlanta Toy Dog Association and The American Pomeranian Club.  We've both held offices in each of these clubs.  David is a board member for both Chattanooga Kennel Club and the Greater Atlanta Toy Dog Association.  He serves as delegate to the American Kennel Club for the Chattanooga club.  Recently he obtained his  AKC Judge's license to judge Pomeranians.  Carlene serves as Show Chairman for the Chattanooga Club and is on the Board of the American Pomeranian Club.
