About Us
If you would like to purchase one of our puppies, please contact us first to make sure that the puppy is still available. Almost always if its still showing as available, it is, as we try very hard to keep this site updated. Occasionally though, we do fall behind and we wouldn't want anyone to get their heart set on a particular puppy and find out its gone already.
I recommend text/emailing us over calling. We are all very busy with the dogs and puppies and seldom near the phone. We do check our voice mails/emails often throughout the day/night so leave a message and we'll be in touch as soon as possible.
We require a $100 deposit to hold a puppy. The deposit is non refundable unless something happens to the puppy while in our care. The balance must be paid by the time the puppy is 8 wks old unless other arrangements are made. Once we have discussed you sending a deposit, we allow 4 days for the deposit to reach us by mail. If it is not received by then, the puppy will be offered for sale again.
The purchase contract needs to be mailed, emailed or faxed to us at the time the deposit is made. You need only to fill out the part with your name, address, phone number and email address. Click here for the purchase contract
We accept payment for deposit by in cash, money order or paypal For paypal deposits we will send you a invoice to pay which includes a 3.5% fee to the total(about $3.50 per hundred) to cover charges to us by paypal.
If you are unable to pick up/receive  your puppy up by the date he/she will be ready, please contact us immediately. We will as a courtesy to you hold your puppy here for a additional week at no charge. After that date you will be responsible for any charges for additional care including vaccinations, dewormings. If after two weeks of the agreed pickup date you have not paid in full, we will place the puppy back up for adoption and the deposit will be forfeited. This can be avoided simply by keeping in contact with us and letting us know whats going on. We will work with you as much as possible. So please keep in touch with us!
Your puppy must be picked up in person, we do not ship! We may be able to meet you part way with your puppy depending on location. Please contact us to discuss this option.

We welcome potential adopters to visit our puppies. You will be visiting our home not a kennel. Visits are by appointment only. If you are unable to keep your appointment please call or email, our time is important too!

Please do not bring your dog with you when you visit. I get asked all the time if people can bring their dog so they can see if they like the puppy. Unfortunately, it won't work like you think. Your dog will be nervous being in a strangers home where he can smell/see/hear other dogs and there will be puppies running all over the room. Your dog will not be comfortable in that kind of enviroment, trust me. Some of the nicest dogs in their own home have become nervous enough with all the action going on here that they've actually snapped at the puppies. Introducing your new puppy to your current dog on his own turf is best. If your dog gets along well with dogs its used to chances are it would be fine with meeting a new puppy when properly introduced in their own home. Dogs are pack animals and do tend to like other dogs and would most likely welcome a friend. Proper introduction is key
.
Children are welcome to visit too. Please supervise them with touching and holding the puppies.
And Finally- Please limit visitors to no more than 4 people including yourself when visiting. Too many people at once is stressfull to our mothers and puppies.

Keeping our dogs/puppies happy healthy and safe is the #1 priority! You wouldn't want it any otherway, right?

I've lived and worked with dogs most of my life. My mother has raised Dachshunds for as long as I can remember. I grew up helping out with her dogs/puppies so it was no surprise when I decided to do the same. I choose a to work with Shihpoo's instead. I love their personality, their looks and as a allergy sufferer, I really appreciate their minimal shedding!

I am a small breeder and do not always have puppies available. Our puppies are raised in our home where we can always keep a close eye on them.

As a certified vet asst., I have extensive knowledge in animal husbandry, which helps me raise healthy, happy puppies. However, I still rely on my veternarian to check each puppy over before they leave us to ensure they are healthy and ready for their new families. Puppies leave here up to date on shots, are dewormed and come with a 1 yr genetic health guarantee.

We strive to give the best customer service possible and will answer any questions you have now and after you purchase your puppy. Since we began this adventure, we've met some wonderful people who have adopted puppies from us. We love to recieve emails, pictures , letters, etc. from you so please stay in touch.
