When can we take our new puppy home?

Puppies are sent home to families no later than 8 weeks. This gives the puppy time spent with the mother and the rest of the litter. Doing this starts the foundation for the puppies’ social skills as well as learning life skills from the mother.

How Are they delivered?

We offer recommendations for both plane and ground transporters. Contact us so that we can discuss this further and get an estimate.

Are the tails docked and dew claws removed?

Tails will be docked at 1/3 of the tail between 3 – 5 days after birth. We do not remove the dew claws of our puppies.

Are puppies vaccinated?

Our puppies will make regular visits to the vet to ensure good health as well as receiving their shots. Puppies receive shots based on the age of each puppy. Between ages 6 weeks - 17 weeks, puppies receive core vaccines (DHLPP). Rabies vaccination will be giving to puppies that are at least 14 weeks of age. All puppies will be dewormed.
