Who’s new name is Che
home in Washington, DC

Here’s a note from Che’s new owner ...

He is loving, secure, and an absolute charmer. Clearly a puppy who has been well-socialized and very loved, I am so grateful to you for the time and commitment that you have given in order to bring along a puppy who is ready to be part of our family. He’s a great dog and mightily loved.  I realize how lucky I was to find you.

I like everything I know about the people who run the kennel, and their "product".  They were straight, honest, clearly love their dogs and puppies, and seemed like "good folk". I really liked that they knew well the personalities of their puppies. We had lengthy conversations about the right fit ---Paul was funny, patient and got it.
Thank you, Lucinda.

All puppy eyes start out blue in color and will eventually change to their final adult color.  They have a protective film over the eyes which can take several weeks to be absorbed.  They can only see light and blurred shapes for awhile.  Hearing begins a few days later, and like sight, takes time before being able to discern where the sounds are coming from.  At about 4 weeks of age they really come alive, can’t get enough attention or playtime.  They squeal, howl, and practice barking.

Live Animal Acceptance Checklist (pdf file)
Gives standard requirements for all airlines to safely transport live animals.
Rest assured, your Puppy will arrive safely and in good health!

Visits after puppies are 5 weeks old is highly encouraged,
but not before due to health concerns.

Finding and choosing the right puppy can be a real challenge.
Here are a few things to look for and avoid:

“Objective studies by ethologists show that vital animal imprinting begins in hour one of life.  That puppies who are bonded to humans during both the neonatal (1-2 weeks) and transitional (3 weeks) period respond by developing faster mentally and physically.  They also exhibit greater confidence throughout the entire socialization period.”
The Joyous Havanese by Kathryn Braund

This being the case, it is vitally important to know all you can about the breeders practices, socialization, diet, nursery, care etc.  Who you choose is as important as which dog you choose.  Ask questions! 
Millions of puppy buyers purchase puppies who have been adversely imprinted during their early weeks, causing behavioral problems that are not seen sometimes till after 5 months or until an adult.  They can be difficult to live with and extremely hard to train.  Our dog pounds are full of these unwanted pets, through no fault of their own.

What is a Puppy Mill ...
(by definition)

- Puppy mills are breeding facilities that produce purebred puppies in large numbers. The puppies are sold either directly to the public via the Internet, newspaper ads, at the mill itself, or are sold to brokers and pet shops across the country.

- A place where several breeds of dogs are raised and the breeder always has puppies for sale.

- A dirty, trashy place where one or several breeds of dogs are kept in deplorable conditions and puppies are always available.

- A place where a single breed of dog is raised in acceptable conditions and puppies are always available.

- A place where lots of dogs are raised, where breeding is done solely for financial gain rather than protection of breed integrity, and where puppies are sold to brokers or pet stores.

Buyer beware, you usually get what you pay for!
