Adopting Requirements & Process


Puppy Questionnaire

We require those who are interested in taking home one of our puppies to fill out our puppy questionnaire to assist us in getting to know you and your family. 

Responsible breeders will ask you to; explain why you want a dog, explain who in your family will be responsible for the pup’s daily care and training,where the dog will spend most of his or her time, sign a contract that you will spay or neuter the dog unless you will be actively showing him or her, sign a contract stating that you will return the dog to the breeder should you be unable to keep the dog at any point in the dog’s life. 

To fill our our questionnaire, please send us an email and we will provide you with the questionnaire if we have any available puppies. 

Puppy Agreement

We do require all buyers to sign a puppy agreement. 

We care deeply for our puppies and are extremely committed to their well being. The puppy agreement was created with the puppies' best interest in mind and after a few learning experiences with puppies/ families in past liters. 

*Currently updating our puppy agreement, please check back later or send us an email for an updated version*

*Please note there is a difference in the puppy agreement for those purchasing a puppy with the intent to breed and those purchasing a puppy as a pet. 


We require a $250 deposit, non refundable, to hold your puppy. The deposit does go to the purchase of your puppy. 

We collect the rest of the money when your puppy is ready to go home with you. 

Once we have your deposit, we will include you in a Facebook group for you litter and begin to update you on the litter. 

6 Week Meet & Greet

At 6 weeks old, we will have meet & greets. 

This is when you will be able to officially pick your puppy. This also allows for us to make sure that each family is a good fit for our puppies. 

Those who are purchasing a puppy for breeding/showing will have first pick based on deposits. Those who are purchasing a puppy as a pet will pick after breeding/ showing picks and will be allowed to pick based on their deposit order. 

Taking Your Puppy Home

Puppies are able to go home as early as 8 weeks old, NO SOONER. 

We do strongly recommend the puppies stay with us until they are 10 weeks old.
