PUPPIES for SALE
Our web site received an award in late 2011 from Pup City for excellence in content, good design, and good Search Engine Optimazation. We are working to win that again.
We maintain only 2 to 3 breeding females at any given time. Our goals determine our breeding choices. Our first priority is to have healthy puppies and second to that is work ability with disposition being just as important. Color is fourth in our list of priorities. Once breeding decisions are made, the rest is left to nature with some help from us.
HEALTH PROTOCOLS: When the puppies are 2 weeks old, we start our worming schedule. At 5 1/2 to 6 weeks, they get their first vaccination and are taken in for their Vet Check. They go to their new homes at 7 weeks.
When all puppies in a litter are sold, the papers are sent in to ABCA for registration. When the puppies are 49 days old or 7 weeks a Volhard or PAT Test is done on the puppies to assess their possible behavioral traits as adults. In some instances, I test at 6 1/2 weeks, since some of our puppies leave us before they are 7 weeks of age.They are handled daily and when they are able to move around, they are taken outside daily to get used to being in the grass and have room to run and develop their bodies. They have a doggie door that they quickly learn to use and by the time they are about 5 weeks they are all going outside to potty.
DEPOSITS: For a puppy to be held until it's old enough to leave, a non refundable deposit of $100 is required. The balance is due when you pick up your puppy. When you put a deposit on a puppy, pictures will be sent to you on a weekly basis so that you can monitor their development. I have set up a PayPal account for Deposits on a puppy.
SHIPPING: We do ship puppies via Continental Airlines. However, they have to be 8 weeks of age to be shipped. Shipping is extra and generally is $300, depending of the airline ticket price. In the last 2-3 years, we also used a couple of individuals for shipping VIA GROUND on her/his schedule. Price generally is $300-$325.
While Tootsie was out getting her exercise, I let some of Molly's and Mindy's puppies out to play. When Tootsie made her circle around the pens and across the porch, she saw the pups and wanted to check them out. However, when they saw Tootsie coming, they ran and hid under the deck. I couldn't resist the picture...it was too funny!
Doc is a Ghost Sable (a rare coloring). This coloring is sometimes called a "Seal" color. Here is a link that you can access for viewing what he will probably color out to look like. Scroll to the end of this link and you will see a slide show (taking you from 1 month of age to 1 yr.) of his probable coloring. To date, we have not had puppies from Doc yet. Molly does not like him and she is the only female we have that we can breed him to. However, she is so picky that we go with her choice.
It appears that Molly is not going to have puppies at this time. This is a disappointment since I was planning to keep a female for breeding. We will try again on her next heat cycle and pray.
On a more positive note, Daisy had her puppies today! She had 7 puppies and lost 2 due to her inexperience. This is only her second litter. Below are pictures of her puppies with the lone female first.
