Adopting a Puppy or Adult Dog
When adopting your next puppy or adult dog, please consider the impact that purchase may have on the long term welfare of the breed. Adopt your dog from a responsible breeder who cares about the breed's future. When consumers refuse to purchase from pet stores and back yard breeders, they are sending an important message to these enterprises and, we believe, it is ultimately through the consumer that change will occur.
If you are interested in adopting a puppy, please contact us about planned litters. We also occasionally have adult dogs to place. Click here to complete and submit an online application.
Adoption Agreement and Registration Certificates
Our written agreement outlines the basic expectations for the care of the puppy and what the new owner can expect from us. AKC Registration Applications are provided after a specified waiting period. This is outlined in the contract and bill of sale for each puppy. (Full details on AKC recordkeeping requirements and registration are available on line at http://www.akc.org/.) We strive to place each puppy in the home that is best suited to the specific temperament of the puppy.
