We are breeding for family pets so we want dogs/puppies that are sociable and happy. People are welcome to come see our parents.
Puppy's tails & dewclaws are done by our vet by 5 days of age.
All puppies will be wormed several times and they will have at least their first puppy 5 way vaccine (DHPP).
Ears are left natural. Some say natural means ear infections; however, we have not had that issue. We do not pluck the hairs in the ears. If needs to be removed then gently trimmed.
All of our breeding dogs are AKC registered. We are happy to provide pedigrees to people.
Between 6 and 8 weeks we take the pups to our vet for a thorough checkup. We have a form that our vet is gracious enough to use and if they find anything then it is documented. If you are interested in a puppy we disclose any abnormalities. This vet check is not only for new owner's but it is for us so we know that are pups are healthy when they leave. If issues come up we discuss with our vet how to proceed with our breeding plans.
As we know that genetics pulls from many generations, we do not try to "breed out". We are fortunate to have a team of vets working with our breeding program. We value their opinion and if they say a dog shouldn't be bred then they are not used in our breeding program. One of the biggest things we learned with breeding Min Pins for so many years is that parents are only a part of the genetics. We have seen where things have come from many generations back. Example, in order to get a chocolate, both parents must carry the chocolate gene. We had a black male and a red female produce a few chocolates. The chocolate was 4 generations back in the red female's pedigree.
