We are staying very busy with the children and the puppies...lots of fun times and great memories! Most of our girls come in heat in cycles together so we have lots of puppies at the same time, then no puppies for several months. This is such a fun time for us but also very time-consuming...I do wish at times they would be more spread out but nature has a mind of its own. This coming month is going to be a busy month for us delivering :-)
I work hard to keep pictures updated...you can always call to find out current status too.
WE DO NOT BREED EVERY CYCLE! There are times when a girl does come in heat early or unexpectedly and they do breed but we have years of history that shows we do not breed over-and-over. This is not what we are about. We want to only provide families with a good, solid, quality puppy that they can love for years to come.
We are very flexible with meeting you, especially since my husband and I work different shifts/schedules at work. I try to keep the website updated with as much information you need to make the best decision on which puppy is right for you. Call, text, or email if you require additional information...I am quick in replying.
At a minimum, your puppy has everything they need when they leave our home at 8 weeks of age (3 sets of worming, 2 parvo vaccinations, 2 full sets of puppy shots, and a bordatella kennel cough intra-nasal vaccination) including their own 2-sided brush, a steel comb, a toothbrush, a small bag of food, and their blanket with mom and litter mates scent on it. I give lots of extras too!
At around 5-6 weeks, they start following mom out the doggie door. By the time you get your new addition, he or she (hopefully) will have no accidents in your home. I have had great success in how I train my puppies!

I do hold puppies for that special time or when
you have your home "puppy proofed". When I hold a puppy, they live with
us and our children. I train them as if they were mine! See 'Testimonials' page.
It just happens this way for me but all my girls come in heat about the same time then all have pups about the same time. Kiddos stay busy but sometimes get overwhelmed. It would be nice if they are more spread out :-)
All of my girl come in heat all about the same time and then all have puppies at the same time.
I have several litters at a time then nothing for a couple of months. It's really just nature (and the weather!)
I try to keep the website updated (literally every day) so I can provide the best possible information to my new puppy owners.
How exact am I? I am pretty good :-) I know every one of my dogs in and out so any change at all I notice. I am able to be really-really close on my estimate on how many pups will be born.
How do I know how many puppies? No, I do not have an x-ray machine. I simply have the touch to know my dogs and what is going on. My husband and I sometimes get into little bets about how many pups and colors. I usually win :-)
Can I determine color? Most times, yes but Shichon "Teddy Bears" I have no clue until they are born.
Can I determine gender? No.
Can I determine how they will look? Absolutely! I can tell from past history and their pedigrees. I have had so many generations of the lineage over the years so I can usually give my best estimate on physical characteristics. Examples: smoothy faces, ear length, stockiness, coat thickness. I just know my lines and my dogs.
Can I estimate the pups personality? Yes. The pups personality is usually reflective of the momma (the one who raises them). If a mom is hyper then pups might be. If a mom is chilled and calm, then the pups usually are. The amount of pups definitely determine the personable nature of the puppy. I can usually guestimate early on how the pups will be.
Can I estimate size? Usually yes. Sometimes a pup surprises me and gets chunky. I can only do my part but how the are fed when they leave my home is really the biggest determination. How many times a day you feed...how much you feed...do you give training treats...what about table scraps (I hope not). This is all a factor. Also how many pups are born, if a mom has a lot of milk and the season it is (rainy, cold, hot, nice weather, etc).
