Which of the puppies shown on the site are available?
We only put the puppies that are indeed available for adoption on our site. Those that have been reserved already are removed soon after the deposit is received.
Are the photos current?
Yes. I take new photos of everyone every two weeks. After you place a deposit, you will receive new photos of your puppy every two weeks sent directly to your inbox. I am a firm believer that care and socialization of the puppies always comes before photo shoots, but do my best to create a balance.
Can I see parents of the puppies? What about the pedigrees?
Yes. If you come on site you will be shown the parents upon request. You can also see photos of the parents right on our website. On the detail page for each of our “available now” puppies, you will find the names of his parents. Click Here to visit the “MEET THE PARENTS” page, simply type in the name of the parent dog in the space provided. If there is a match, this will bring up photos and the pedigrees of the parent dogs.
What type of guarantee do you offer?
We have a contract to protect you as a buyer and let you know what guarantee we offer. We do not believe in having you dance through hoops and turn summersaults to show us your desire to own one of our babies. We do however enjoy knowing a bit about your family and your living arrangements. I don’t require you to fill out any forms ~anyone can write anything they wish on a form so we find them unreliable.
Are there reviews or references that you can share with us?
We do have a section on our site where you can read reviews written by previous customers. You are also welcome to contact our veterinarian if you so desire. We hope that you too will someday serve as a reference for us.
You will find it is our dogs who are attending training classes. It is our dogs who are working as therapy dogs in our nations mentally challenged nursing facilities. It is our dogs who are working as helper dogs for cancer stricken patients. It is our dogs who have called 911 to save the lives of their companions. It is our dogs who are living in the homes with their autistic friends. It is our dogs who are bellying up to the puppy I bars. We would be thrilled to make one of OUR dogs, YOUR dog.
Male or female?
Just “food for thought”. I grew up in a home where we always had female dogs in the home – never a male. After reading many, many breed books it has been said over and over that the males are really the more devoted companions. So when my daughter fell in love with a little male born a few days early in the middle of Grandma’s dining room floor I decided to do a little more research. The vets just graduating from the nation’s top veterinarian schools have now been taught that early spaying and neutering (meaning at 10-16 weeks of age) is best for the puppy – less hormonal tendencies such as leg lifting, “humping”, etc. Our young vet was all for it and does neutering at 10 weeks of age. My daughter’s Digby is such a joy. He will always squat like a female to pee, never thinks of marking territory, and yes – is very devoted. I now always recommend that unless you are considering breeding to keep an open mind regarding the sex of a puppy.

Or, you can contact us and let us know that you will be mailing out a personal check or money order. You will find our address on the top of the health guarantee. Deposits are NONREFUNDABLE, although if something comes up in your life that you must put off the purchase of a puppy we will honor that deposit on any puppy of ours at any later time.
