We have helped families in Blacksburg, Richmond, Charlottesville, Fredericksburg, Alexandria, Maryland, Danville, Martinsville Greensboro, Charlotte, Raleigh and beyond find the perfect 4 legged addition to their family.
At this time, all litters are fully booked for many months. Our waiting list is currently full for 12 months. We are accepting applications for late 2021/early 2022.
With the holiday season in full swing and COVID cases on the rise, we are getting multiple emails daily asking for a pup within the next couple of months. We simply cannot fulfil this request at this time. Please do not reach out asking if we have something sooner or if you could fill the spot of someone who drops off my list. Our list is currently full for about 12 months, and if anyone drops out, the people who already have deposits on our waiting list will move up the list.
If you are desperately wanting a holiday pup for your young kids, we have several families who have opted to place a deposit with us, and plan to share the special news at Christmas with a stuffed animal. Then 2021 will be the year of education and preparation for the kids before a puppy joins your home. We recommend having a pup join your family when your children are between 8-12 years old. Though we work with all families, many with younger children, we have found that children younger than 10 struggle with sharing the daily responsibilities of puppy ownership, and can be overwhelmed by an active puppy with sharp teeth!
Typically I could refer you to another breeder, but all of my breeder friends are in the same boat. Best of luck on your search for a holiday or spring pup. I urge you to be very cautious, as there are many, many puppy scams out there right now. Remember to get a vet reference, ask about parental health testing, ask where the parents are kept and how many litters the mommy dog has, and where the puppies are raised.
