Are your puppies and parents health checked? What do they come with?
All of our dogs (puppies and parents) are health checked. The puppies are up-to-date on their shots and worming. You get a copy of their vet records.
Do your puppies come with a guarantee?
Our puppies come with a 3-year health guarantee.
Can we get a puppy just from seeing it on the website?
We want you, a family member, or a friend to meet the puppy before taking it. We like to meet you to make sure this is a good fit for everyone. If at all possible, we bring our pups to you in person.
We show our dogs all over and you could meet us there if that works better.
Do you ship if we need that?
We DO NOT ship our pups. We DO make arrangements to meet you and your family and after making delivery arrangements with you, we hand deliver your pup.
What do your puppies eat?
We give you some food to start with and give you information about what kind of food to give them and how often to feed them.
Are your puppies crate trained?
Yes, our puppies are crate trained and paper, litter box or outside trained depending on the weather.
Can these dogs sleep with us?
These puppies would love to sleep with you if that is what you want.
