We have a couple of puppies still available, born 12-6-17 and we are starting the waiting list for our next litter in Spring/Fall 2018. Please contact me for more info on puppies.
All of our breeding dogs are A.K.C. Registered. They are all health tested before breeding. We do the health testing to ensure that we are doing our best to breed dogs that will better the breed. At 2 years of age, we do OFA hips, elbows, heart, eyes, vWd, and DM testing.
The life span on average is 7-9 yrs of age, due to cancers and other health issues that affect this breed. Good ethical breeders are working together carefully to try to breed dogs that are healthy with no orthopedic issues and a history of longevity in the lines. Beware of purchasing a puppy from a breeder that has not done the health testing, as it is so important to the future of this wonderful breed.
Never purchase a puppy on impulse. It should be a well thought-out decision. When you buy from a reputable breeder, you are embarking on a relationship that will last the entire life of the dog and beyond
These cheerful dogs love children. They are very intelligent, easy to train and are natural watchdogs, but not overly dominant. A friend for life. Self-confident, alert and good-natured. Socialize well as a puppy. Slow to mature, acting like a puppy longer than other breeds. Rather friendly with strangers, and are generally good with other pets and dogs.
