"Whoever said you can't buy happiness forgot little puppies." Gene Hill
"Puppies are nature's remedy for feeling numerous other ailments of life." Richard Allan Palm

Please note:  Raising wonderful, healthy, socialized pups is an expensive and time consuming hobby. We occasionally need
to raise our prices as costs go up for food and supplies.
We currently ask $575 for pups that are picked up, no matter what sex, coat or color.
It does not cost anymore for us to raise a unique coat/color combination and we think  
all our babies are special and beautiful. If you cannot make a trip here, we can often drive closer to you,
but will charge a reasonable amount to do so, depending on how far we are going.
We charge only as much as we need to in order to afford us the pleasure of
continuing our breeding and providing our dogs with the best nutrition and care.

If you are determined to get a top quality pup and our price is beyond
your budget,  we accept monthly payments if
a lump sum is hard on your budget.

We do not take deposits on pups unless you have had a chance to meet the pup
and we have had a chance to meet you.
If you are unable to come see us, we can often arrange to come closer to your location.
You can look at the "Colors and Patterns" page to see some adorable pups from
past litters in case you'd like to get on a waiting list for a special kind.

We keep our babies with us until they are at least 8 weeks of age,
had 3 to 4 wormings, bordatella vaccine and the first vaccine.
Most our adult dogs are duel registered with AKC (American Kennel Club) and ACA (American
Canine Association). AKC is geared towards breeding and showing,
while ACA is the largest veterinary health tracking purebred canine registry.
To help cut costs, all puppies sold as family pets will come with ACA registration only.
If the pups come from champ lines and have show possibilities, we will be
happy to provide AKC registration if you want to pay the additional cost.

Our pups go to their new families with a puppy pack that includes their
own blanket, some of their favorite toys, Eukanuba small
breed puppy food, treats, AKC or ACA registration papers,
shot record and signed guarantee. See the written guarantee on this site.

Our puppies leave us with a basic understanding of potty training
(paper, pads or outside). I have put together
some very good written information on crate training and housebreaking,
basic training for puppies and
dealing with "problem" behaviors that will also be included in your puppy packet
Here are some of our pups in their new homes. It looks like they have made lots of new friends
and are all getting plenty of love.
See our Happy Homes page for more fun pictures.
There are no available pups, and at this time I am hesitant to add any new
folks to my waiting list.
We breed our dogs and raise our babies carefully, and as some of my dogs
reach retirement age the litters will decrease and breeding will eventually stop
altogether. If you are currently on our contact list, you can be assured that we
will check back and see if you are still interested in a pup when any are
available, but with the high demand it's unlikely that we'll be able to satisfy
everyone already on the contact list. Preference will be given to families who
already have one of our pups.

We appreciate the patience of our waiting families. If we leave a message and
you are no longer interested, please let us know so we can contact the next
waiting family.
