Previously I have always been able to keep my retired females they are like my kids and the bond only strengthens when we spend those special moments together welcoming new lives into this world. Unfortunately due to the constraints of kennel licensing and the growing demand for our puppies, we can not ethically improve each generation and meet our waitlist demand while limiting our girl's pregnancies without making a sacrifice somewhere.

So we have to make the hard choice between keeping our girls the 10-15 years they are expected to live (only producing litters for a maximum of two of those years) leaving our waitlist in serious default, or doing like some and breeding the girls until it taxes their health which I could never do to them. The final option that most ethical breeders choose is trusting another family to be able to give our young retired adults the same love and standard of care we do. 

Many people are not in a position to start over with a small puppy but still have lots of love to give to a young adult already past the chewing, and crying stage. 

In a perfect world, I would have 1000 acres and I would keep them all!! This is possibly the hardest decision I have had to make as a breeder. I am trying to think of it like when your kids grow up and move off to college or get married you have to trust they will be OK. 

Because these are as much my children as the furless two-legged ones I want the best possible matches for them. The following are some stipulations based on how I raise my dogs that I feel will help make an easier transition for everyone. 

To adopt one of our retired adults it would be preferred if you owned your home, did not have carpet (they see carpet as a potty pad), have a fenced yard, have a working relationship with a vet already, and are willing to visit minimum every other year for family photos. Preference will also be given to families who have previously adopted one of our puppies. 

You can read more about their personalities, likes, dislikes, etc.. by clicking more info below their photo.
