Super smart and love to play!

We lost our Bolognese about 3 months ago. Over the past few months we also lost a poodle and a yorkie. We knew that it would be hard to find a Bolognese because there are so few breeders and dogs in the US. However, we saw Lexi's website on the internet. After speaking to Lexi several times, we traveled from NJ to FL. Since we work with rescue we knew what we were looking for in a breeder. Lexi was all of that. Her dogs were treated as family and she makes sure they get all they need. They have the run of most of the house and a yard to play in. All the dogs were playful and friendly. This is an excellent place to find a Bolognese, Biewer or your special fur baby!  The puppy we adopted is a Royal Bolo Bi male, half Bolognese, half Biewer and they are a wonderful breed!

Great experience! We love our new family member!!

Extraordinary breeder and person

I am beginning a breeding program and bought a Bolognese female from Lexi who has divine dogs....Mine is breeding quality so she is perfection and is already potty trained, knows many commands, and is very balanced psychologically and a beauty.   I spent the night at Lexi's house and saw how hard she works to maintain her dogs in beautiful condition as well as giving them the best food and supplements.    If I were buying a companion dog, this is the breeder I would highly recommend.....she does it as a labor of love, not money.  My baby who is very high quality would have cost me much more had I bought elsewhere and not gotten the same quality.   

Such a Smart Puppy

Picked Mindy (a Royal Bolo Bi) up from Lexi yesterday. Lexi met me at the airport and gave me all the instructions I need to keep this pup healthy. She has bonded with me, my husband and our schnoodle, Max. Has pottied outside and knows the commands "get on your bed" and "come" already! such a sweetheart!!

BEAUTIFUL Bolognese Bianca and Bianco

Our beautiful loving playful and well adjusted puppies thank Lexie for there loving nature. We were purchasing but when we seen how friendly and loving they are also so smart we took brother and sister.thank you Lexie for all the work and dedication you put into raising these beautiful babies .

Loving and sooooo very intelligent!!

I recently put down my 11 year old, Louie, a Bichon/Maltese mix. I went onlineI looking to adopt another small dog. To my good fortune, I found a breed and a breeder.  Initially, it was the convenience of the breeder’s location that drew me to the sight. I got so much more than just a location.  I was introduced to an absolutely adorable breed, the Bolognese. The breeder, Lexi Preisser, of Starlight, is amazing. She is so knowledgeable and dedicated to her animals. No puppy mill here! She cares about each and every one of her dogs. Her website, Facebook page and blogs are full of great information. If looking for a Bolognese, I highly recommend Lexi. 
I am now living with an incredible, seven month old Bolognese named Romeo. He is such a lover! He is the joy of my life!
Thank you Lexi!

I had a great experience and have a beautiful dog.  Breeder is so nice and knowledgeable, that if you are buying a dog, you should get one from Lexi.  My dog, Milo, is the best things and a great new addition to my family.

Super service dog!

I got a little Bolognese from Lexi in December.  She sold him to me at a discount because of his overbite but he is amazing!  I got him as a possible service dog and he is incredible; his personality and ability as a service dog is unbelievable considering we haven't started training yet but he is learning commands from me and knows what I need.  He is tiny but knows when he is working.  Has no problem just sitting on my lap at apppointments but when we are home he is a puppy which is how it should be.  In the hospital he just stayed on my bed and hung out with me.  Most puppies would want to get down and check things out after a couple of hours, but not him.  He is so happy just to stay by my side.  
The thing that really impressed me was, he was on my bed one night in hospitaland tech came in to do vitals.  He was trying to chew on the cords and wouldn't stop, he was getting his adult teeth.   I picked up and had him look at me.  I said, Bo you are working, it's not play time. Lay down and behave and he actually did it! First time ever that I told him he was working. He laid down and turned and watched me and waited for my next command. So amazing especially with how young he is.  Of course, when he is home he is such a puppy and such a joy! When he is in bed playing with me there is absolutely nothing else going on, the world is so perfect at that moment in time.  Lexi is really an amazing expert on dogs; they are trained without being trained per se!

DrElizabeth Rose · August 26, 2017It's National Dog Day today and it's time to take a moment to thank Lexi Preisser and Starlight Bolognese! Just a week ago, I flew to Fort Lauderdale and brought home 3 lb., 13 week old Starlight Skyler. I am head over paws in love! Skye is cuteness personified, an absolute sweetheart, smart, loving, friendly, happy, and he loves to cuddle! I could not be happier with him. 

Lexi was wonderful from the start. She welcomed me for an initial visit and let me hang out with the pups for hours to get to know them and their parents. She picked me up at the airport when I flew to "fetch" Skye. She even took me shopping to some local pet boutiques when I needed a new carrier. 

Lexi is passionate about her Bolo and Biewer babies, has a wealth of knowledge and experience with dogs and other animals, and shares that knowledge generously. She has been a solid resource and support throughout the adoption process and I anticipate she will be there with continued advice and support for Skye and I whenever needed. 

Thank you so much, Lexi!

As dog lovers and owners for many years of various breeds, our beloved Havanese Max passed at the age of 14, pretty long in "dog years", leaving a tremendous void in our home. After some time we just couldn't bear the absence of a 4 legged best friend. After doing considerable research on all the related breeds, we decided to look for a Bolognese, the Italian cousin of the Havanese, We were delighted to find Starlight Bolognese right here in the Ft.Lauderdale area. We had seen pictures on the internet with puppies available for sale from only a handful of breeders of "bolos" across the country. However, the idea of buying a "best buddy" online was an iffy proposition-looks cute, but will I connect with that adorable puppy face to face. So we decided to take a ride on a sunny Sunday afternoon to visit Lexi. We were able to check out the situation, observing the puppies, their parents and how they were being raised. Needless to say, we were thrilled to see the loving environment they enjoyed as well as have a nice "sit down' with Lexi. Frankly, we were sure she was checking us out as much as we were her, making sure her babies were going to a loving home. We all passed the test. We saw Stigge, a 3 month absolutely loveable and affectionate little boy. Lexi had wanted us to wait until Stigge had finished having all his shots; instead, we took him home with us and met her at her vet's a few days later to complete the vaccinations still due. The vet commented on how every Bolognese she brought in was perfect! A nice, comforting bit of knowledge to have. Stigge is such a love and was already past the paper training stage and ready to pamper, all 3 lbs, 4 ozs. of him. We highly recommend Lexi's Starlight Bolognese; she's there for you if you're new to puppyhood and have any questions-just call or text her.

Love at first sight!!

Last month I drove to Florida to attend my Uncle's funeral. My cousin showed up with Nico a 5-month-old Bolognese. Nico reminded me so much of my little buddy of 15 years Jake. I had been thinking about getting a new puppy but I just could not bring myself to take the plunge even though it had been a couple of years since Jake passed. My cousin mentioned that Nico had a little brother so we drove down to Fort Lauderdale to Starlight Bolognese and I met the owner Lexi and my new little buddy Tebo. It was love at first sight for me. It has been such fun getting to know him. This little guy has the sweetest disposition. He is very quiet and shy, especially when meeting new people and fur babies around the neighborhood. He is such a sweetie that he is already the most popular puppy on the Block. I am so thankful that I picked up my sweet little puppy from Starlight Bolognese and I look forward to spending many blissful years with my Tebo. Thank you, Starlight Bolognese !

Sophie is perfect!!

A healthy pup with a huge personality exceeded only by her adorable face! After much research following the passing of our German Shepherd, Sabre, we decided on a Bolognese. We expended significant effort researching and talking with breeders from coast to coast. Starlight became our choice and we couldn't be happier. Sophie rode in our Motorcoach back to Georgia and by the time she arrived at home she was house trained. Very smart and well behaved! Our vet gave us a full thumbs up and we highly recommend anyone seeking a Bolognese puppy to consider Starlight Bolognese!

Mica is perfect!!

On Dec. 3 I flew to Florida to pick up our little girl, Fiona/Mica. Lexi kindly met me at the airport, afterwards Mica and I made our trip back to Oklahoma where she has settled into her new home beautifully. We think Mica is perfect, she has such a wonderful demeanor and personality, and has brought joy into our lives. Lexi truly cares about and loves her Bolo pupplies. She has always made herself available to talk with me, making it a pleasant and enjoyable experience purchasing our puppy. Lexi thank you, Ken, Donna and Mica.


I have had my wonderful, beautiful forever Fur baby for over a month now and she is absolutely fabulous! I could not have asked for a better puppy. Lexi is the best! She answers any questions I have and she is so knowledgeable!!!
