Our site should not be viewed as an "advertisement" to "sell" puppies .We like to help "educate" those looking to add a puppy as a family member.Our site is meant to be helpful and informative for those looking for show prospects as well as family pet members! It is our goal to be selective in breeding sound show prospects as correct to the "standard" as possible and placing "non-show" prospects in "pet homes"

OK!..So you have decided you might be interested in adding a puppy to your household..lets talk briefly about "what you can expect" as far as what your puppy needs before he or she is ready to come home!
Puppies are vet checked at birth and re-checked before they leave for their new homes. All puppies are BAER/JHC tested before they leave for their new homes. An OFA(documentation form ) will be included stating that your puppys hearing has been "cleared" as well as its JHC(DNA test for juvenile cataracts)A microchip will be included to identify your puppy in case it should ever get lost/stolen(heavens forbid!) We supply copies of all health testing of the parents along with pedigrees ect.Unless you are purchasing a show puppy limited registration will be provided . Limited registration means that although you are still getting a wonderful,quality puppy it will not be eligible to use for breeding purposes and instead will be placed in an approved ,loving ,pet home! If you are purchasing a show puppy a "show" contract will be provided (to be discussed) vaccinations are given at 4 weeks (neo-natal neo par) then at 6 weeks and 9 weeks.Wormings are done at 2/3/4/5/weeks (nemex) then 7 weeks with Panacur(5 days) Testing for internal parasites is done at 6 and 8 weeks.Baer tests are done between 7 and 9 weeks.A thorough vet written health check is provided before any puppy leaves the premises!..NO PUPPY MAY LEAVE BEFORE 8 WEEKS!! NO EXCEPTIONS!
We start to "potty" train puppies to a litter box or "potty pads" before they leave for their new homes! Show puppies will be accustomed to "stacking" before they leave!
We feed "Orijen" dry kibble and some "raw" food...diets will be discussed and provided with each puppy..
A puppy "pack" of goodies and a one year written health guarantee (for life threatening congenital disorders) are also provided as well as lifetime support!
We have so much information and much to talk about when deciding to add a puppy to your family so please know that communication with us is strongly urged before you make a decision!
Adding a new member to your family leaves room for many questions and we are here to assist you...
