Curious Puppies: Meet our Family
Our young family has been fostering puppies since 2007 and has enjoyed many special breeds and hybrid cross breeds. We simply provide a temporary home to puppies before they are adopted by their forever families. Our children were 2 and almost 4 years old with our first litter, and have enjoyed spending time with various pups over the years. The puppies always enjoy the personal attention from the children as well as the other dogs in our family, and they are occasionally spoiled even getting to put the children to bed! The puppies also love being able to play with our friends and their children who visit, and it’s always great for them to be exposed to so many different people at the ideal ages.
We currently have Buster, born September 28, 2007, our Boston Terrier x Beagle (Boggle) that is absolutely the best “uncle” for our fostered puppies. He is a big boy, but very gentle and allows little puppies to be exposed to larger adult dogs and helps teach these puppies what their place is in the dog world outside of their litter. (Please note: Buster is our family pet and is not for sale)
We also have a purebred registered American Cocker spaniel, Georgia, who had her first litter of registered puppies for sale April 23, 2011, that was carefully planned along with her original breeder. Georgia had 6 healthy and very well socialized puppies for sale and did an amazing job with her first litter. (Please note: Georgia is our family pet and is not for sale)
We have since added a third (and final) dog member to our family! We have a wonderful Landseer Newfoundland dog, Dakota, who was born June 15, 2011. She is a stunning white/black Newfie and is an incredible source of joy to our family, as well as every one who meets her! At 8 months old she had weighed in at 105lbs at the vet, and we are curious to see where she will end up (now about 200lbs!)…Dakota is a joy in our family and a beautiful “big” sister to Buster and Georgia. (Please note: Dakota is our family pet and is also not for sale)
Why Do We Have Puppies For Sale?
Many people who are looking for puppies for sale will know how hard it is to find puppies that fit your criteria and are close enough for you to visit. Many people also want to visit multiple times before deciding on the right puppy, and many will want to spend even a few hours at a time visiting and socializing with the puppies to determine different personalities. This is part of the reason that we dedicate much of our time to families visiting in our home and taking all the time they need before deciding on a puppy for the next 10-15 years in their home. We never rush our families, instead we encourage them to take all the time they need.
Why Don’t The Breeders Sell The Puppies Themselves?
Our breeders all work very hard at their jobs, and caring for the puppies and adults, that they are not always able to give the families who visit the much needed time they require and should have access to. The puppies and adult dogs are able to play with the children of the breeders, however that doesn’t help prospective buyers when they need valuable assistance from an adult! Some have small kennels as well as full time jobs off their property, or work their farm fields as well and this all takes up much of their time.
Many breeders in fact have no access to the internet, and while that may seem strange to many of us, the beautiful farm lands they enjoy do not always allow this luxury. In addition, we have spent much time researching and experiencing so many different aspects of the puppy training process that we can give the buyer much valuable information on raising and training the puppy as well as telling them many of the things that do not work. We like to spend a significant amount of time educating our families and answering every question they have before they go home. We also love to stay in touch and watch the puppies grow up, through photos and email updates. They are treasured emails and phone calls for us, as we have put so much of our hearts into our puppies for sale.
