Dog ownership is a MAJOR responsibility, and should not be taken lightly under any circumstances. We only want the best for our puppies, and want them in homes where they are considered important members of the family, not "just a dog". Please take the time to consider if you are ready to add a puppy to your current lifestyle. The following questions are being asked of you so that the right puppy and the right placement of each puppy is made by bringing the various requirements of both the puppy and his/her new owner(s) in perspective, BEFORE a choice is made. I hope you will agree that the dog's welfare must be our foremost consideration in considering a placement. Please remember, there are no right or wrong answers. Each situation is unique.
