Professional breeders, do more than just breed and sell puppies. They temperament test their puppies, they collect information from prospective owners, and they evaluate their puppies and then select the puppy that has the personality that matches the prospective family. This ensures that each puppy will thrive in their new home and bring joy to their new families.
My main focus is to ensure lifetime placement, that can be achieved by matching the right puppy to the right family. For example, alpha pups will do best with children of a certain age, then with toddlers. A pup that is a little passive will thrive best with an empty-nester or a family with older children and so on.
One of my greatest responsibilities is to make sure that each puppy is given the best opportunity to live and grow with the right family. This works to your benefit as well. Therefore, placement of our puppies is always at breeder’s discretion. This requires your flexibility in regard to the color and sex of the puppy. Families are still encouraged to share their preferences but ultimately, as the breeder of your puppy, I make the decision as to which one will best suit your family. What you tell me about your family and lifestyle, is essential to the selection process.
Having a very specific preference for color is not recommended, this breed is renowned for its variety of colors, particularly among puppies of the same litter.
I will make selections and notify each family when the puppies are between the ages of seven and eight weeks. At eight weeks, when possible, we will hold an Open House*.
* Open Houses will not be held when we an additional litter of puppies younger than eight weeks old in our home.
