What Puppies do you breed?
Yorkies, Shih Tzu, Maltese, and sometimes Designer Puppies
What supplies do I need to take care of a puppy?
Are any of the breeds too small or fragile?
No they are not, as a lot of buyers have children and large breed dogs already in their home.
I have allergies, can I still purchase one of your puppies?
No worries!! All of our puppies are non-shedding, hypo allergenic and have no body oil or dander.
Should I adopt a male or female puppy?
I get this question all the time. I have no preference, my males and females are equally as intelligent and I’ve not found a difference with the potty training aspect. Some people worry about the menstruation of a female and “marking the territory” of a male. If you get your new puppy spayed or neutered aound 6 months of age you will not have to worry about any of those issues.
What are the benefits of spaying and neutering our dog?
Lives a longer and healthier life
Helps reduce uterine infections and breast cancer. Spaying your dog before her first heat offers the best protection.
No heat cycles, therefore eliminating bleeding.
Helps fight pet overpopulation
Eliminates unwanted pregnancies
Prevents testicular cancer if neutered before 6 months of age.
Reduces or eliminates the marking of territory and spraying
Prevents unwanted pregnancies
Helps reduce the roaming attributed to finding a mate. Therefore, reducing the risk of fighting with other males and injury in traffic.
Helps fight the pet overpopulation
Spaying or neutering does not make your pet over weight.
What age do you let your puppies go home?
They have to be at least 8 to 11 weeks old to go to their new home. The time may be different for each puppy, they will stay here until they are completely ready to go to their new home. My first concern is the welfare of the puppy. I do not want any problems for either you are the puppy when you get home.
Can I come see the puppies before I pay a deposit?
Of course, you are welcome to come see our puppy’s before paying a deposit but keep in mind we only show our litters after they have had a second vaccination and are over 8 weeks old. Early deposits are optional, not mandatory.
What size will my puppy be as an adult?
This is a one of the toughest questions that I get on a daily basis, because no one really knows for sure the size a puppy will be as an adult. I have also included the weight of the parents on the individual puppy page. Using parents weights to judge the weight of your new puppy is not always perfect. Genetics often come into play and the size of grandparents and even great grandparents can also be a factor. Because we have years experience with raising these sweet babies, I can always give you my estimation of a puppy’s adult size.

How do I know this is not a scam?
How do I potty train my new puppy?
Puppy Pad Training is all about consistent and keeping the same regimen every day for your new puppy. Also be very verbal and speak the commands to your puppy that you want them to learn every day. There are many different ways to house train puppies. One option for house training your puppy is to teach him to pee on a house training pad. Teaching your puppy to pee on a pad is very similar to teaching him to relieve himself on newspapers. Instead of newspapers you’ll be using house training pads designed for the purpose.
Choosing Where To Put The Pads
Always have a pee pad in your puppy play pen. In order to train your puppy to use house training pads you should place the pads in the area you have chosen for your puppy to use. Ideally, this will be a somewhat confined area so your puppy will have a smaller choice about places to go. We all have very big homes and whenever your new puppy is out and roaming, you should have a second pee pad in that room as well. Any room with a tile or linoleum floor is a good choice since floors of this type are easy to clean if your puppy has an accident.
Watch For Signs
Once you have everything set up you should help your dog get started using the house training pad. You can do this by spending time with him and watching for signs that he needs to relieve himself. As soon as you see the signs, take your puppy to the house training pad and give him a word so he can associate it with the pad such as “potty” or “papers.” Your puppy should use the house training pad as designed. Make sure you praise your puppy to let him know that he’s done a good thing.
Put Your Puppy On A Schedule
Although your puppy may catch on that he’s supposed to use the house training pad, he may still need frequent encouragement at first. You can help your puppy if you will put him on a definite schedule. Take your puppy to the pad as soon as he wakes up in the morning, right after he eats, when he wakes up from naps, and right after he has a big play session. These are all times when puppies usually need to potty. You should also make sure your puppy uses the pad before he goes to sleep at night.
Watch for accidents
Your puppy will almost certainly have a few accidents so don’t be surprised by them. He’s only a puppy and he will make mistakes. If you catch your puppy in the act of having an accident then you should clap your hands or make some other loud noise to startle him and let him know that this is inappropriate behavior. Carry him to the house training pad and encourage him to finish there. Then praise him. If you find an accident after it’s already happened, let it go. Puppies have a short attention span and if you punish your puppy for something that’s already happened he won’t have any idea why he’s being punished. Instead, take the blame yourself and make a mental note to watch for the signs more closely the next time.
Has my puppy been de-wormed and are they up to date on vaccinations?
Yes, your puppy will be up to date for their age on all vaccinations and de-wormings and the health record will be provided when you pick up your new puppy.
When should I take my puppy to the vet?
We require you to bring your new puppy within 4 days of your purchase to the vet for a complete head to tail check. This should be a wellness / health check and Fecal Exam only, no vaccinations are given at this time, as this is still a stressful time for the puppy and a vaccination could suppress the immune system. This is my recommendation per my veterinarian. Also keep in mind, on your health record, we will have the date for the next recommended vaccination.
What if my puppy gets nauseated on the way home?
Nausea sometimes occurs but don’t be alarmed! Puppies often get motion sickness in the car, just bring a towel, soft blanket and some baby wipes just in case. Eventually in the future as the puppy is older, they all usually become great car riders.
