Puppies and Adults
" A puppy is one of the most appealing
creatures on earth. He's the embodiment of exuberance, humor, and affection.
But there are a great many things that a puppy is not, and these negative
aspects deserves some thought before you bring a puppy home".
A puppy is not a toy to be enjoyed while
he is a novelty, then set aside in favor of a new distraction; A puppy is
not a teaching aide guaranteed to instill a sense of responsibility in
children; A puppy is not cheap. Whether you pay a nominal fee at the city
humane shelter or what seems to be a king's ransom for a really special pup,
the money paid to make the pet yours is a mere drop in the bucket compared
to what it will cost you to keep him; A puppy is not a spur-of-the moment
purchase, or at least he shouldn't be; A puppy is not a gift unless the
purchaser is certain that this particular pup will be wanted; A puppy is not
self-cleaning. There will be puddles on rugs, vomiting occasionally, dog
hair on clothing and furniture. There may be worms to be dealt with. If
these prospects are intolerable to the housekeeper of the family, then
perhaps the pleasures of owning a puppy will be overshadowed by the tensions
it will cause. A puppy is not an adult dog. He has neither the physical nor
the mental ability to perform as an adult dog would; A puppy is not a puppy
for long. Before you succumb to the charms of a clumsy ST. Bernard pup, or a
sad-happy hound, or a limpid-eyed cocker, be very sure you want not only the
puppy he is now, but also the gangly, unattractive adolescent he is about to
become, and the adult dog who may fall short of what you hoped he would be."
"If you've faced all the negative aspects of puppy
ownership and still want him, chances are good that you and your new dog
will be one of the lucky ones who finds a permanent happy home. And you will enjoy the rewards of planned-parenthood dog ownership - rewards which will far over shadow the drawbacks."
We only sell our dogs/puppies to approved loving caring homes where they will remain for life.
All companion dogs are sold on strict spay/neuter non breeding agreements/contracts and will be required to be spayed/neutered at the appropriate time. Proof of such will be required.
I am very careful of where my intact dogs go so dogs that are sold to show homes (price will vary depending on age of dog) will only be done so upon reference checks, home check unless I have really good reference checks and on co-ownerships only.
We reserve the right to refuse sale to anyone we deem an unacceptable home for one of our puppies.
Completely fenced secure yard a must for all dogs, no exceptions
