I carefully screen all potential puppy buyers and require a huge amount of information before deeming them an acceptable home. Yes, even for "pet quality" puppies.
I have and will refuse a sale, if I do not think the person
would make a good life-long home for the pup.
Starting with a 2 page application, then I call and visit local applicants and for non-locals, I google their address to see location and neighborhood.  I offer a 2 year written hip
and temperament guarantee.


Please know, most breeders dont breed for a medium drive
or therapy temperament, as we do.

While searching for your next furkid, make sure you ask about drives, health & titles. If any of their dogs or pups do schutzund, that is HIGH drive.
Not to say it is bad, as my dogs will do 2 of the 3 trainings in schz.  Tracking & Obedience, just not the bite work.
They learn it, but dont have the drive to title in that
discipline.


After Application is approved, a non-refundable, but litter transferable
deposit of $200 for a puppy is required.
 

I will NOT sell 2 puppies at the same time to the same home/family.
Or sell a puppy into a family that already has a puppy under 1.5 yrs old.

(I believe every pup deserves an undivided attention to learn, then they can help with the next pup)

$1200.00 (Limited Registration) 

Veterans, Firefighters and Police organizations receive a $100.oo discount




When contacting me, be persistant !
dont be offended if I dont get right back to you, call/email again, again & again.
As I put my dogs first, paperwork & emails get squeezed into the end of my days.

Week 4 
7/5/18        SHE DID HAVE MORNING SICKNESS< ALMOST OVER IT.
Morning sickness should go away and appetite return. One of the early signs of pregnancy is for the dam to 'adopt' a toy. Development of eyes and spinal cord and faces take shape.
The fur on the belly and around the nipples thins.
Week 5 
7/12/18      Belle weights  82.0 lbs
The doctor may be able to detect pregnancy (85% accuracy) by feeling the abdomen. Diagnosis by x-rays is usually possible after 45 days (95% accuracy for determining the number of puppies).
You may be able to feel the little puppies -they would be the small bumps in the abdomen.
Development of toes, whisker buds, and claws. Eyes now close and gender can be determined. The puppies are now considered fully developed miniature dogs.
She may be showing... She may also gain a little weight particularly if she is going to birth more than 1-2 puppies.
Week 6  
7/19/18    Belle weights  90.0 lbs
During the last several weeks, your dog’s nutritional needs nearly double. Feed small meals several times a day.
We recommend feeding puppy food through the end of lactation (nursing)..  Increase water.
Enlargement of mammary glands as nipples darken and enlarge.
Week 7  
7/26/18 
She may shred papers, blankets or bedding in an attempt at “nest building” in the last weeks.
During the last 2 weeks, your pet may become irritable and should avoid contact with small children.
Moderate exercise is the proper approach. Neither forced rest nor strenuous exercise is a good idea.
Short periods of gentle play and short walks are good..
You may feel the puppies now but counting them may be a bit more difficult.
Definite abdominal enlargement.  Abdomen hair will start shedding.

7/30/18      Belle weights  99.4 lbs

Week 8   8/2/18   
Dam begins to spend a lot more time grooming herself.  Her breasts become swollen as her milk forms.
Nesting begins as she looks for a place to have her puppies... Make sure you have her box or spot ready..
The dam may not have as big of an appetite during this period. Her abdomen can be crowded with puppies.
You can feel the puppies move now.  See if you can get her used to her whelping box
Week 9    8
/6/18      Belle weighs  102.0
Nipples and vulva should be gently cleaned with warm water, you might want to trim the hairs surrounding the nipples, to allow easier access for the puppies to suck.  She may express milk from her nipples.
Watch for her temperature to drop. You may take it rectally if you want but she's just plain old cool to the touch compared to what she has been the last 8 weeks.  She may also become restless, seek seclusion and in the last few days, soil the house. She will be 'nesting' 12-24 hours before the birth

Expected Date of Whelp. 8/9/18
Expected date of whelp. Average is 62 days but may take place from the 58th to the 68th day.
