I am getting a lot of inquiries about puppies so here is what’s in store for 2017.
Libby should come into season in the late winter (February/March). We will try again to breed her. If it works puppies will be born 9 weeks later. Depending upon the size of the litter there may be puppies available for placement. We do not make any final decisions on which dogs to keep for competition and which are available for new homes until they are at least 12 weeks old. This also allows us watch them grow, perform temperament tests and health screenings, and complete initial vaccination protocols.
So, realistically and in the most optimistic situation, puppies would not be available until the summer of 2017. Frankly, summer is a great time to bring a new dog into a home as you have the easiest weather for housebreaking and training.
Check here and on my AKC Marketplace page for updates. I will start a formal wait list if/once pregnancy is confirmed by ultrasound and potentially take deposits for 1-2 puppies depending upon the estimated litter size.
Also, I am still considering placing Dante in a new home after he completes his AKC championship. I will be following up on inquiries about the young boys I mentioned in an earlier post. Pedey will be heading to his new home in a few weeks after reference checks are complete and he is neutered.
