Our breeding program was founded in 1992. In the last 30+ years we have built one of the top breeding programs in the United States. Our prices reflect the years of work and commitment as well as huge investment we have made to build this program. There are cheaper prices out there, but remember you get what you pay for and will they be around if you need them to stand behind something or help you. Unlikely, most tell people to call us. We have been working dogs and training dogs since 1985. So when we say we have bred 181+ plus litters of pups, (1024+ puppies or average 5. 6 puppies per litter app over 30+ years of breeding) this means over the 30+ years (which calculates out to 6 litters a year, certainly not mass production) of breeding we developed a world class program, and not by mass production or cutting corners. We do not just hold back dogs for breeding because it is the cheap way to do it. I am constantly searching for new blood lines and traits dogs offer. Unlike most we also raise and train some of the dogs we breed, so we know first hand what we are producing and what they can be with proper training and work.
All Puppies are priced at $2500.00 in price, hips guaranteed to certify with OFA at 2 years of age. Males and Females all priced the same. $500 nonrefundable deposit (for any reason so please do not ask) required to hold a selection spot. Male and/or Female first pick in ALL litters may/ or may not be reserved for our foster program and we do reserve the option to keep first pick male/or female in any litter. If we choose not to keep a pup the person with #2 pick position would move up to first pick and so on. All puppies come with a full AKC registration application if the litter is AKC registrable Micro-chipped, and Vet Checked. All parents are on site (if living) as we OWN all the dogs in our program and use no outside dogs nor do we trade for breedings etc. We do have 2 females who live in foster families which are trainers and or Vet Techs. All puppies are named by us for registration purposes (you may use any call name, however official names are given by us based on tattoo number assigned by us).
