Frequently Asked Questions
Do you have puppies available?
Yes, we are currently reviewing applications and setting appointments with candidates. We anticipate rehoming around thee beginning of March.
What is the adoption process?
Interested parties must read the FAQ, online contract, and submit the online questionnaire. Eligible candidates that we find are a good match for our pups will be placed on a waitlist. Waitlisted candidates will be invited to set up an appointment to meet the pups. After meeting and making a connection, the puppy of interest will be placed on hold for several days, while both parties are encouraged to think about their commitment. When the decision to adopt is confirmed from both parties, the adopter must place a 10% deposit and set a rehoming date; generally, after the home is puppy proofed, essentials are secured, and the adopter has several consecutive days off for rehoming, crucial for training.
