How long have you been raising puppies?

We’ve been raising puppies for nearly 20 years! We specialize in Miniature Poodles and Yorkshire Terriers.

Are your puppies socialized?

Yes they are! Our family is in love with our puppies. We start socializing them as soon as possible. Each puppy is held and played with daily. This makes a big difference when your puppy is ready to go home. A puppy that hasn’t been socialized will take longer to train and will tend to be more afraid of everything. Our puppies are fun and silly and will fit right into your family.

How do I know you are not a scammer?

Good question! There have been plenty of scammers that have taken advantage of people looking for a puppy. Here are a few ways to know if a website is a scam:
1. Is there a phone number prominent on the site and does someone answer the phone?
2. Is the website asking for full payment or just a deposit? Always look for an option to leave a deposit.
3. Does the breeder require payment only by check or cash? This indicates that the breeder (or possibly scammer) doesn’t want to deal with chargebacks on a card if something goes wrong.

What about puppy mills?

The term “puppy mill” can be a bit tricky to define as there is no “official” definition, however we define a puppy mill as any breeder that raises puppies in substandard conditions and places profits over the welfare of the puppies. This can include:

  • Filthy kennels
  • Puppies never left out of their cages
  • Too many puppies in a small area
  • No socialization or exercise
  • Disease or skin conditions in puppies or adults

This isn’t how we raise puppies and we want to help you avoid other breeders who don’t treat their puppies well.

How do I reserve a puppy?

We know it’s a big decision but once you’re ready, reserving a puppy is easy. We upload all our puppies to our website so you can see pictures and videos of all the puppies we have available. If you have any questions we’re only a phone call, text, or email away. Once you’re ready to reserve your pup, just click the “Reserve Me Now” button, enter your info, choose your delivery or pick up options, and pay the $199 deposit by credit card or PayPal.
