Now offering a priority waiting list! With your holding fee of $300, you will be placed on a priority waiting list for the puppy of your specifications.  When I have a puppy that I think matches what you're looking for, you will be notified according to your position on the priority waiting list.  If you are happy with the puppy choice then you will be required to place an additional non-refundable holding fee to have the puppy reserved for you (equal to 1/3 of the purchase price.) The priority waiting list will always be published so you can check your position.  All holding fees are non-refundable but are transferable to another puppy ​and will go towards the price of the puppy.

​I require a short                                  to be completed and returned to me prior to accepting your holding fee.  Once you have been approved, I will send you a Priority Waiting List Agreement that should be completed and returned with your holding fee.  Once the holding fee and completed agreement is received, I will sign and email you a copy.

Listed below are families who have placed holding fees either on a puppy I have now or are waiting on their babies to arrive!

I believe that these dog babies are deserving of only the best homes – where a dog isn’t just a 

dog, but a family member. If you are looking to bring home a new dog baby and make it your

new family member, give me a call!

Families listed in blue are getting puppies I already have here.  They will be taken off of the list as they receive their puppies.  

SHIH POO -   Sparkle, 10 lb. red and white Shih Tzu, and Kosmo, 8 lb. red and white parti Toy Poodle have puppies!  There are 4 girls and 1 boy.  I expect these pups to average 8-10 lbs. mature.  One family is on the Priority Waiting List and will be choosing from the girls.  They should be ready the around the last week of March.  I can no longer ship Shih Poos in cargo.  You may fly in and take pup back in cabin, drive to pick up puppy or ask me to arrange for a nanny to fly your pup to your airport.
