Can I Visit the Puppies?

 

Sorry but the answer to the question is NO. There are many reason why we do not allow anyone around newborn puppies between birth and 8 weeks of age, all of which are to protect the litter, your new family member and our other dogs from illness and/or disease. Newborn puppies do not regulate body temperature for the first two weeks of life so we limited all outside traffic. During this time puppies will be a temperature controlled environment which often includes time in an incubator along with the heated whelping nest. Should veterinary appointments be necessary in the first 2 weeks, we have a portable heated incubator for transport to clinic. 

 

Did you know most illnesses and/or diseases are innocently carried on people’s shoes and clothing? Entire litters of puppies can be wiped out within 48 hours by the puppy killer parvo virus. This disease could be picked up unknowingly by people in a school yard, a park, or on a sidewalk, and this is only one disease. We cannot risk exposing our dogs and your puppy to diseases that could destroy them.

 

We know you are excited and invite you to follow the updates on Instagram. We have been planning this litter for years and are taking every precaution necessary to ensure healthy puppies!
