Do to the continuing craze the pandemic has created for people looking for puppies and kittens I anticipate many will be wanting to reserve puppies once availability is posted.  I do my best to be fair about the process.  Below explains how that works
Procedure once availability is announce to reserve a puppy. 
Once mom and babies are ready to have individual pictures taken I will do that and post them to my website.  This does not mean puppies are available to reserve but you are welcome to check out the babies and if you have questions about a puppy you can email me and I will get back to you with answers.
Once availability is posted then I will take requests.  Puppies will be held on a first request first reserve basis.  A $300 deposit will hold the puppy of your choice.  Deposits can be made by Zelle or a check through the mail.
If you see an available puppy contact me by email or phone.  I do not do facebook messaging nor do I receive text messages.
To be fair I will open and honor requests in the order they come into my inbox.  Obviously once on the phone it often stays busy.  So emailing is the way to get a time stamp on your request.  Phone calls will be placed in line with emails.  So if I have three emails in my inbox and someone requests a puppy by phone then I will check those emails prior to deciding availability to the person on the phone.  If as anticipated many will be emailing around the same time I advise if there is more than one puppy you would be interested in that you send me an order in which you would like to reserve a puppy.  If available I will assign the puppy that is highest of your picks.

If you do not get the puppy you had hoped for this summer, if you are patient, there will be puppies in the future.  At some point people are going to be done buying pandemic puppies and kittens but puppies and kittens will still be born.  As a breeder I realize the backlash for me is that in the future the demand for puppies will drastically drop off as people who maybe would have bought puppies over the next few years have jumped on the pandemic bandwagon and are getting them now.  I know it is hard to be patient but you will have these kids hopefully a long time so sometimes waiting out this rush might be the right choice as myself and other breeders will continue to have puppies and at a time where it is likely more of a leisurely way to reserve.

Upcoming Litters
Actual timing of the litters will depend on when the girls come into heat.
Once a pair has been bred I will update information about due dates.

Puppy arrivals will be announced on this site as well as my Facebook site. 
To receive updated information notices go to the above Facebook link and follow us.


Note: I do not maintain a waiting list nor accept deposits prior to availability being announced. 
To be kept up on when puppies arrive and availability is announced "follow" my facebook page to receive those notices.
Once puppies arrive I will post that to both my website and facebook.  Usually within the first week I will post individual pictures and availability. Once availability is announced then puppies are reserved on a first request first reserve basis.  The exception to that is if a past client is looking to add a puppy to their family they will have the opportunity to pick a puppy prior to availability being announce if they contact me in advance. 

A $300 non refundable deposit will hold your puppy until 8 weeks of age.


Rosie X Radar
Anticipate these puppies likely will be born around November

Puppies are given names for our convenience of identification.  You are welcome to change the puppies name and name him the name of your choice on his registration papers.  All puppies come with AKC registration papers.
 
**
ALL puppies are sold with limited registration unless other arrangements are made.  Full breeding rights registration is considered on an individual basis and for an addition cost.  Limited registration means that the puppy can not be used for breeding. 

A non-refundable deposit of $300 will hold a puppy. The balance of the price of the puppy is due at the time the puppy is 8 weeks old.  Personal checks will be accepted for deposits and for balances if payment is received three weeks prior to the puppy's pick up.  Balance paid at time of puppy pick up should be in the form of cash or Zelle transaction.  Please make checks and drafts out to Patty Black.  Puppies need to be picked up by 9 weeks of age unless other arrangement have been agreed too prior to reserving a puppy.

You are welcome to make an appointment to visit available puppies.
Shipping is not available.  Most airlines allow puppies to travel as a carry on if you would like to personally fly your baby home. 

All puppies are seen by our licensed veterinary prior to going to their new home.
