How our process works:
First send me an email (email@example.com) to inquire on upcoming litters.
We then can place on the waiting list for an announcement email on puppy arrivals. No one is ahead of anyone else on the waiting list, it is simply to announce the litter is born, thereafter its first come first serve. We answer emails in the order they are received.
A Deposit in the amount of $300 will reserve the pup(s) of your choice until they are ready for their new homes. The Deposit amount does go towards the purchase price of the puppy. We allow a few days for the deposit to arrive if sent by mail, after that we move on to the next buyer if it is not received, we also accept Paypal for deposits only, not for final payment.
All puppies are sold as *Pets Only* with Limited Registration. Breeding Rights are available ONLY to approved homes with an additional fee added to the purchase price of the puppy. If you are interested in Full Registration and the rights that come along with it, you will need to contact me and let me know before the sale of the pup.

GRAIN-FREE DIET MYTH OR FACT?
MYTH OR FACT?
Pet foods should be grain-free?
IT’S A MYTH
Many pet owners believe that grain-free foods are
easier to digest
and provide pets with better nutrition than pet foods containing grain.
The carbohydrates, proteins and other nutrients provided by grains add to both the nutritional value and structure of pet food.
Grains supply energy.
- Most cells in the body use carbohydrates as a primary source of energy.
- The nervous system (i.e., brain and nerves) requires the carbohydrate glucose to support normal functions.
Grains spare protein.
- If carbohydrates, such as those from grains, aren’t available, dietary protein is diverted away from its most important function--proteins synthesis—to make glucose.
- If carbohydrates are available, dietary protein is used to build and maintain muscle and tissue.
- Reproducing females, growing puppies and kittens, and active dogs especially benefit from diets containing carbohydrates.
Grains provide fiber and other nutrients.
- Grains provide fiber, which contributes to gastrointestinal health.
- Grains also contain essential fatty acids and other nutrients that contribute to a healthy skin and coat.
Properly processed grains provide needed nutrients as part of a nutritionally complete and balanced diet.
This information has been provided by the Veterinary Journal issued to us by our Veterinarian at HLMA who has seen the ill effects of the grain-free diet first hand.
We recommend that you have your puppy examined by your veterinarian as soon as possible. We will give you some guidelines for health care that is established for us by our veterinarian but realize that medicine is constantly changing and your veterinarian may suggest some variation from our protocols depending on where you live and what you intend to do with your dog in the future.
All of the puppies have been de-wormed for roundworms and hookworms every two weeks beginning at 14 days of age. Their mother is de-wormed at the same time.
We vaccinate for Distemper, Parvo virus, Adenovirus and Parainfluenza at approximately 8, 12 and 16 weeks of age and the first vaccine is administered at 6 weeks of age for the Parvo virus. It is best to also vaccinate for Bordatella, a contagious upper respiratory infection, during puppy-hood. In California, Rabies vaccine is required at 16 weeks of age. Additional vaccines, such as Leptospirosis, Lyme disease, Rattlesnake, etc., should be discussed with your veterinarian. Their use should be based on exposure and multiple types of vaccines should not be given together, especially in puppies. Vaccines cause a strong immune system stimulation and need to be evaluated carefully for each individual animal based on their life style and exposure risk.
