Here are some answer's to our FAQ's!
Q: Do you genetically test your dogs?
A: Yes! We genetically test, and do all appropriate health screenings on our animals.
Q: How much are your puppies?
A: All of our puppies are $2000. Please visit our puppy page, and read the article "How Much for a Puppy" listed below before inquiring.
Q: What is your deposit requirement?
A: We require a $500 deposit to hold you place for a puppy. We always reserve 1st pick male, and 1st pick female at a minimum for our breeding program. We will not choose those pups until they are between 7-8 weeks. After that time, we will chat with you about which pup will best fit your family. The remainder is due 3 days before your puppy goes home.
Q: Do we get to pick our own puppy?
A: The answer to this question is yes, and no. While we reserve the right to first pick of each sex, sometimes we don't keep pups out of every litter. So you MAY get to pick your puppy, but it also depends on where you fall in line for your deposit and how many puppies we decide to keep. Also, we hand raise our pups and spend quite a bit of time with them. Therefore, usually we know which pup will fit best with your family and strongly encourage it. Please trust us. I hope that helps answer your question!
Q: Are your dogs AKC registered?
A: Yes, all of our dogs are registered through AKC. All puppies come with AKC Limited registration. This means they are sold without breeding rights. If you are interested in Breeding Rights, please reach out to us. We require everyone who would like full breeding rights to be active in some sort of conformation, hunt test, etc. We do not sell to dilute breeders.
Q: Are we allowed to come visit?
A: Yes! Please remember no one is allowed in our home until puppies are 3 weeks of age. Also, these puppies are raised inside our home (in our bedroom and living room) so you will HAVE to be flexible with our schedule. Lastly, we do NOT allow shoes in our home for sanitary reasons, and you must ALWAYS wash before touching anything. Please respect our rules. *UPDATE* Due to Covid 19, we currently are not allowing home visits.

ARTICLE :HOW MUCH FOR A PUPPY?
Let us say a few words to you, yes you, the person who writes an email to simply ask the price. The person who calls and after hearing a price surprisingly states: “I can buy a cheaper pup elsewhere”. We also address you; the person who doesn’t care about papers because I want “just a pet”.
No dog is “just a pet”.
Behind every pure bred puppy/dog is a BREEDER. We’re using capital letters to differentiate a breeder from a pet factory or mill. A reputable breeder does not breed dogs without papers, that does not protect the integrity of the breed. Registration (papers) are records of lineage that document bloodline and allow one to research any possible health issues present in the lineage. When you tell a Breeder you don’t care about papers what you’re really telling them is you couldn’t care less about the health of the puppy you just want the cheapest thing you can find! When you select to buy a puppy from a reputable and quality breeder, this breeder is responsible for the health of every pup ; both dogs owned and every pup they’ve sold for its lifetime. This breeder will skip holidays, miss sleeping, and most of their personal house space has been turned into space for their dogs . The truly passionate breeder who loves what they breed, puts their whole heart and soul into it. Not only in puppies that are sold, but also in each client who owns a piece of their heart and now is a member of their extended family. This does not take into account any puppy/dog who might get sick or need extra help to thrive. Breeders worry about their babies after they leave and will take one back without question.
A breeder will get their hands dirty, often covered in everything accompanied with birthing. Because that’s what life is about...In the middle of birth and death is life. The wheel that keeps turning. A breeder will do tests, echos, x-rays, analysis, emergency c sections, vaccinations, register litters, research pedigrees, de-worm, as well as microchip their puppies and get them evaluated by specialists.
Last but by no means least, a breeder CHOOSES the family lucky enough to have one of their puppies. Yes, you read that right. A true breeder chooses who they sell to because they are not making money off the sale. There is no compensation that can offset the investment a Breeder has made so they need to be confident it's the right fit. Many times saying more no’s then yes...A good Breeder will have different criteria for those wanting to carry on their bloodline, why? Because breeding is not a responsibility to ever be taken lightly, it’s a lifestyle choice set aside for ONLY the few devoted people willing to sacrifice.
Because a dog is never “just a pet” it’s the Breeder’s legacy, a little boy’s best friend, a little girls protector, an elderly persons therapy, a member of the family, someone’s whole world!!
