ADOPTION PROCESS

 

MEET THE PUPPIES

You have decided to add a new fur baby to your family! Congrats! The first step we take is meeting the puppies. We typically schedule appointments once the puppies are 4-5 weeks old. Once you find a puppy that is the perfect fit for you family we move onto the deposit. We require a $300 deposit to reserve your puppy until they are 8-9 weeks old and ready to go home with you. If you are unable to pick up your puppy at 9 weeks old, we do charge $10 per day to continue care for your puppy. Updated photos can be done by request every 2 weeks. 

 

 

PREPARING FOR PUPPY

While your little one grows there are some things you can do to prepare.

Make sure to have a veterinarian chosen for your new puppy. Call and schedule an appoinment that aligns within 10 days of puppies arrival. 

Puppy proof your home! Move all chemicals and cleaners out of puppies reach. Check floors for small toys and objects. Restrict access to plants that could be dangerous to puppies: Poinsettias, Azaleas, Rhododendrons, Dumb Cane, Japanese Yew, Oleander, and English Ivy.

Create a shopping list. Here are some basics you'll need for your new puppy.

food and water dish

crate and bedding

puppy shampoo and brush

toys!

We will be sending a bag of puppy food along to get you started. 

 

 

 

PUPPY COMES HOME

That special day has arrived! Bring plenty of blankets and towels along for the drive home. If you are traveling more than 1 hour bring a dish for water. Remember to take breaks on the drive home. During this apointment we will transfer registration into your name, activate microchip, go over health guarantee, amd sign the adoption agreement. 

The fist few days can be exhausting for a little pup. Make sure to take it easy and let your little one rest. If your new puppy is excited, or anxious, they may not want to eat much. Watch for signs of hypoglycemia. If you notice symptoms of weakness, low energy, loss of appetite, or disorientation it is advisable to seek a veterinarian immediately. Offering smaller fequent meals will aid in avoiding hypolycemia. 

Keep in mind that we accept cash only at time of pickup.
