Our Adoption Process
When looking for the perfect family for one of our puppies or retired adults we carefully select promising candidates through interviews and information provided in our adoption questionnaire. Once the family and puppy/adult had been matched by the family's lifestyle, activity level, gender preferences, show/pet career, character and temperament we would set up a video call to cover all the details and answer additional questions prior to in-person kennel visit. If the family is selected but no adults or puppies are currently available the application would be added to our waiting list (subject to a waiting list fee). Please note we only accept puppy visits once our puppies are at least 6 weeks of age and had their first round of vaccinations. If you would like to bring your current dog for a meet and greet you must provide a recent vaccination veterinarian certificate which must include all core vaccinations and kennel cough. Once all details have been confirmed and the pick-up date scheduled the puppy/adult will be groomed and health-certified prior to leaving our kennel. Please note our puppies only leave our kennel premises and are separated from their parents after a minimum of 8 weeks of age. We do require a non-refundable deposit for the adult/puppy of choice once one is selected and adoption is approved.
