Reservation and Deposit Payment
Great news! We are now accepting reservations for our next litter! To reserve a puppy, we require a non-refundable / non-transferable deposit of 1/2 down. This reservation fee/deposit will be applied towards the total price of your puppy when we finalize your purchase. See further details below.
Please Note: When multiple buyers are interested in the same puppy, priority goes to the individual who gets us their deposit first. This ensures our buyers get fair, unbiased treatment.
Please Note: We do not take reservations for unborn puppies at this time. All fees and deposits are non-refundable. We reserve the right to decide that a particular puppy is not fit for a specific home. In this case, we will refund you accordingly.
Puppy Deposit: 1/2 down
This deposit will go toward the total purchase price of your puppy.
Puppy Health Guarantee: The puppy is guaranteed to be free of parvo and distemper for 48 hours. After 48 hours the breeder is not responsible. These viruses are highly contagious. Please DO NOT take your puppy to places where it will likely be exposed to germs until it has completed all of its vaccinations. This includes parks, pet supply stores, and any other place where it could be exposed to people or other pets with viruses or germs. DO NOT let your puppy run around the airport or be touched by ANYONE at the airport. Feed him in your car on arrival.
Veterinarian Visit: You MUST take your puppy to the Veterinarian within 48 hours of the day you receive it. If your Vet finds any life threatening defects, I must be contacted at once. If I am notified at once of the defect, your puppy will be replaced. The health guarantee is good for 12 months. No Vet expenses will be refunded, and no shipping expenses will be refunded at any time. You must ship the puppy back at your expense and I will ship the replacement at my expense. This covers LIFE-THREATENING DEFECTS only! Genetic defects that are not life-threatening are not covered. These include underbite, overbite, or undescended testicles. (In the unlikely case of a known defect, it will be divulged BEFORE the sale.) If your puppy develops knee or hip problems after it has been in your care after 48 hours, that will not be covered. I do not guarantee against fleas, ticks, or ear mites. I will not be responsible for any Vet bills that you may incur. If you should need a replacement puppy, I will strive to make you happy with your replacement as much as possible. Should you place your puppy in a new home for whatever reason the guarantee is not transferable.
Feeding your puppy: Feed and water your puppy as soon as you get it in your vehicle. Do not let it walk on grass and other areas that may have germs or viruses! Your puppy should eat every 3 to 4 hours a day. I personally always leave feed out at all times. Make sure it is eating well. Low blood sugar leads to illness and death. Add water or can food if needed only long enough to get him changed over to complete dry food (approx. 10 weeks). Mild diarrhea often results from stress and food changes. If it becomes severe or bloody contact your Vet right away. Please notify me at once if you are having feeding problems.
House training: Some people prefer crate training. The internet will provide you with information about this. Expect accidents. My puppies are paper trained Always potty the puppy when waking up, before bed, after eating, and after playtime. Please do not over-handle your new puppy. Remember it will be ready for outings as soon as ALL vaccinations are completed.
I strive to breed the best pet quality puppy possible. However, no guarantee can be made as to size, disposition, or breeding ability.
The puppy is sold as pet stock only.
I hope you will be very happy with your puppy and love it for many years to come

WARNING for Dog Owners about raisins and grapes
Confirmed at: http://www.snopes.com/critters/crusader/raisins.asp
This week I had the first case in history of raisin toxicity ever seen at MedVet. My patient was a 56 pound, 5 yr old male neutered lab mix who ate half a canister of raisins sometime between 7:30 AM and 4:30 PM on Tuesday. He started with vomiting, diarrhea and shaking about 1 AM on Wednesday but the owner didn’t call my emergency service until 7 AM.
I had heard somewhere about raisins AND grapes causing acute renal failure but hadn’t seen any formal paper on the subject. We had her bring the dog in immediately. In the meantime, I called the ER service at MedVet, and the doctor there was like me-had heard something about it, but…. Anyway, we contacted the ASPCA National Animal Poison Control Center and they said to give I V fluids at 1 1/2 times maintenance and watch the kidney values for the next 48-72 hours.
The dog’s BUN (blood urea nitrogen level) was already at 32 (normal less than 27) and creatinine over 5 (1.9 is the high end of normal). Both are monitors of kidney function in the bloodstream. We placed an I V catheter and started the fluids. Rechecked the renal values at 5 PM and the BUN was over 40 and creatinine over 7 with no urine production after a liter of fluids.
At the point I felt the dog was in acute renal failure and sent him on to MedVet for a urinary catheter to monitor urine output overnight as well as overnight care. He started vomiting again overnight at MedVet and his renal values have continued to increase daily. He produced urine when given Lasix as a diuretic He was on 3 different anti-vomiting medications and they still couldn’t control his vomiting.
Today his urine output decreased again, his BUN was over 120, his creatinine was at 10, his phosphorus was very elevated and his blood pressure, which had been staying around 150, skyrocketed to 220. He continued to vomit and the owners elected to euthanize.
This is a very sad case-great dog, great owners who had no idea
raisins could be a toxin. Please alert everyone you know who has a dog of this very serious risk. Poison control said as few as 7 raisins or grapes could be toxic. Many people I know give their dogs grapes or raisins as treats. Any exposure should give rise to immediate concern. Feel free to contact me if you ave any questions.
