Why are you interested in one of our dogs rather than a puppy from another breeder?
All of our puppies are extensively temperament tested. Each puppy is matched by the breeder with each individual family. Please write a short summation about your family’s needs in a dog; please be as specific as possible so that we can find the right puppy for you. A good example would be a person who needs a tolerant dog for high energy children, or a dog that can fit in with other pets, or an energetic dog for agility.
Are there any questions or concerns that you have about the breed or about our kennel?
