From time to time we will have young adults or dogs retiring from our program available. Older puppies or Young Adults well started on training will be priced accordingly - they are neither free nor cheap! - and older adults retiring will have a placement fee - typically equivelent to their sexual alteration. By no means are these dogs that have been tossed aside; good breeders are always aware of their numbers. We can’t keep them all and still give them the quality one-on-one they need and deserve so we look for the perfect forever home. We know these homes take time to find, so we are patient. If as you peruse the website you think you see a dog you might be interested in, feel free to give us a shout; you just never know. 


Would you consider being a partner family? 

At minimal purchase cost to the new home, having partner families allows us to place females and occasionally males from our program with families where they can be loved as a cherished family member of a home. This allows us as preservation breeders to keep it so that all of our dogs are always valued family members first and foremost, getting the one-on-one attention they desire and deserve. 

What this means to a potential partner home is that we would have puppies from a female no more than once a year, and use males at stud occasionally. Typically a partner-home would be without their dog for a short period of time, but can be as involved with the process as much as they would like.

We pay all expenses related to breeding. Our partner family is responsible for day-to-day expenses including annual veterinary care, dog food etc, and for keeping the dog in suitable condition for show and breeding. Once the dog retires from our breeding program we will have the dog sexually altered at our expense, and we sign over full ownership to the partner family and the dog lives out his/her life with its family. 

If you are interested in being a part of our family and taking in one of our happy, well-adjusted dogs, please contact us.
