Owner Evaluation

Not only is it important evaluate the temperament and conformation of the puppy, we also look to evaluate and match the dog with the potential owner. We take the role of breeder seriously and are responsible for the puppies we produce. Our puppies are very special to us and will always have a place in our hearts and home. All of our potential owners are interviewed prior to receiving a puppy. By understanding what you are expecting in a dog, we can better match a puppy with owner. Please do not be offended if we ask as many questions of you as you do of us. The placement process is a shared responsibility and trust between breeder and owner.

Breeder Evaluation

Whenever you decide to purchase a puppy, remember, there are certain qualities that you should look for in a breeder. A good breeder can be identified by their placement practices, condition of their dogs and facility, and their willingness to answer questions. Responsible breeders will interview potential puppy buyers to determine responsible owners. Responsible breeders will encourage people who are not yet ready to care for a puppy to wait until they are truly prepared. Before purchasing a puppy, please understand the commitment that you are accepting. It takes time, patience, work and most of all love. We encourage visits to our kennel (by appointment only) to meet our dogs and for us to meet you.
