Cavaliers and French Bulldogs
We have young Cavaleirs at the moment so we thought it be awhile before any are turning 6 years old. Occasionally we will retire one sooner for a variety of reasons. Housebroken, crate trained, and as sweet as Cavaliers are.
We only breed the French Bulldogs a few times if they need c-sections. Only Suzie Q has never needed a c-section. Unlike dogs having puppies naturally they should only have 3 to 4 c-sections before being spayed. Its one reason the cost of puppies from a breed needing a c-section is so much more. They take just as long to mature yet they get retired much younger. Amazingly they don't act any different after having a c-section compared to having puppies naturally.
Fiona a cream colored Frenchie will be bred 1 more times at most and probably available spring 2018.
See below for Retired dogs available for forever pet homes.
I retire all our mom dogs after several years of breeding. It works great for me, for our retired moms and their new families. They are healthy, housebroken, crate trained, and come when called already. They all walk on a leash and stand great for grooming.
They will take some adjusting into a new home but they are so easy many families keep in touch for a long time letting me know what a great Westie they are and how happy they are to have one of mine. They are wonderful for the person or family who wants a companion, without all the time and energy a puppy requires.
Some have not been loose in the house very much but they never potty in a crate, and most automatically go to the door when they need out.
If you are looking for an adult Westie who has had a kind and warm family life a retired adult would be perfect for you. Contact us for current information to find out when a retired adult dog will be available. I don't keep this page updated as often as needed since I have a list of families waiting for an adult. Please feel free to email for current info.
We also occasionally have older puppies in any of the various breeds available. They are crate trained, and have the benefit of being able to wait longer to potty for those families who work, or are gone longer then a young puppy can wait. They also learn and remember quickly, since they are a little more mature. They easily move right into their new family the way a young puppy will. Please check on the available puppies page for them too.
Our retired moms are usually 6 years old and $650. they will be spayed, teeth cleaned if needed, and current on health care.
We probably wont have any other retired moms for a while. Although anything can happen that we would retire one early. We should have 3 retiring winter through summer of 2016/2017. We do have 3 families with deposits.
Please email if you would like to be on the list for an update when an adult becomes available.
We offer a contract occasionally to approved homes who are interested in a foster to adopt program for our moms. They must live close enough by that transporting her here would not be a problem.
Basically the girl will be owned by Art and/or I, but live with a family. She would be here anytime she is in season (about twice a year), for health testing once a year, and when bred to have and raise the puppies. When she is retired she will be spayed and stay in her adopted home as a pet. Ownership will be transferred to her family at that time.
We have 1 Shar Pei available for adoption, Boo Boo, has been spayed.
Boo Boo was a house dog for a long time until she learned the neighbors have chickens. She knew not to chase ours but being a smart dog figured we didn't scold her for chasing the neighbors chickens so it must be ok. Needless to say she lost having the freedom to roam the house and farm at will. She also likes to chase cats, if they run. If they don't run she wanders off.
Playful, cuddly, great with kids and adults and good with a large range of dogs both small and large male or female.
She does have some allergies.
Uncle Al's Pugs
He only has 3 adult female Pugs. He does have a few younger Pugs.
We hope to have some of them in foster to adopt programs. Dive lives with our vet tech on a contract. They both love the arrangement.
