No. If I could break even on the dogs I would be thrilled, but I can't remember a year that has happened. Between the cost of purchasing dogs, raising puppies up for possible inclusion in the program, health checks, food bills, vet bills, training, equipment, competition, travel, etc selling an occasional litter of pups doesn't [...]
Yes, I will take back any dog from my breeding at any time in its life. I understand that sometimes "life happens" and people find themselves in a situation where they can no longer keep the dog. In these situations I will be happy to help you find a new home for the dog, or [...]
