Driving Directions-Plan A Pickup Date!
HOURS: We are normally open for pet pickups/viewings 6 days per week by appointment only, including most Sunday mornings! Call to schedule an in-person visit, facetime, facebook messenger live session, or a curbside puppy pickup- (336 ) 957-3609. I am proud to say that not one of our puppies has gotten sick with a virus in many years now since we quit allowing the window shopping public pet them without guidelines and supervision. No one wants unexpected vet bills! To protect our pets from viruses brought in by public here at Healthy Pups, and to reduce unexpected veterinary expenses for our puppy buyers, we raise the puppies in strict quarantine. Buyers may view an individual puppy or a small group of puppies in person OR through video chat. If you can view the puppies though video chat and decide which puppy you want BEFORE you come, we can bathe your puppy, do it's wellness exam, and fill out your paperwork so you don't have to wait when you come to pick up a puppy. Come without first telling us which one you want and you should be prepared to wait while we make the puppy ready to go home with you. This can take some time, especially if you come on a day when other families have already scheduled appointments. A wise person like you would not want to buy a puppy from a seller who allowed public to play with it before you might choose to take it home! Because viruses are highly contagious to other puppies, we will always raise the puppies in strict quarantine and only allow public to pet the puppy that they are taking home! I recently advised a breeder of Golden Retrievers on how to stop the spread of Parvovirus in two litters of her puppies. She said one family came and petted 5 different puppies, and all 5 of those puppies became sick with Parvovirus at the same exact time a few days later. Would you be upset if you bought a puppy from us and learned that another family had brought a virus from other sick puppies before you took it home? This is why NO ONE pets our puppies unless they are taking it home! Personality is not an issue with a properly bred dog. The purebred dogs that have been linebred for show purposes often have unbalanced personalities. ALL mixes have wonderful personalities and are very sweet after they have adapted to a new home. Love them and they will quickly return your affection! Our normal business hours are 10am til 4pm six days per week by appointment, with closed days posted below, but we sometimes work beyond these hours when there is no conflict with family events.
This paragraph is not to force uncompromising biblical theology on you, but posted so you understand our business days and hours, and so you are less likely to think I'm crazy:) A Christian is one who obeys Christ as their Lord and will stop at nothing to learn more about him; even when the truth is inconvenient! If you don't want to hear inconvenient truths that God may judge you for later, then skip the remainder of this paragraph. Acts 17:30-And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent. The age of excuses is over. Anyone who truly wants to know more about God can research and learn truths that were hidden from our ancestors. Many do not want to know. They are having fun in their traditions and cling to them. This is why Christ called fishermen instead of Pharisees! Many things that I have learned in bible study have broken my heart. Every person who identifies as Christian would like Jesus to be their Savior, but almost none will obey him as their Lord! This means they are hoping the scriptures are true, but don't really believe them. Most of these folks are more likely to obey the weather man. God says the Christian must worship in spirit AND in truth, SO when we learn the truth we must accept it or be judged for it "after having received knowledge," since there remaineth no more sacrifice (the blood doesn't cover) for the sins we refuse to forsake. Don't believe in God? How much more faith does it take to believe that you and I, and all we know, accidentally evolved from a pool of slime? Having been ordained as a Baptist minister and called to be a truth seeker, I take my bible study very seriously! SO, in obedience to truth after thousands of study hours and learning that no person living in rebellion was accepted by Christ in the scriptures, we close 4 days per month to observe the true Christian sabbath, which is not Deis Solis (sun god day) or Saturn's Day (first day of the week in the 8 day Julian Calendar of Bible culture, which interrupted the continuous cycle of seven days that began at creation). Because of Roman calendation, the new moon no longer occurs at the first of the moonth as God designed it. Saturday and Sunday as days of worship come from Satan and his pagan calendar so he cleverly steals the worship due our Creator, NOT from the Bible. Read your bible and you will discover that Christ was crucified on the Passover of the Creator's calendar, and arose on First Fruits of that original moon cycle calendar. This is the calendar that Yahuwah established at creation, saying it shall be for signs and seasons, and days and years. In the time of Christ, the Jewish people including Jesus himself used Yahuwah's moon cycle calendar, and the Romans used their 8 day Julian (Julius Caesar) calendar. Many things from that era bear both Jewish AND Roman dates. There is no way that Jesus used the Roman calendar instead of the one his Father commanded. It is easy to prove that 14 datable sabbaths occurring in conjuntion with given feast dates in the scriptures, some hundreds of years apart, occur on lunar calendar dates only, which would be impossible in our modern Gregorian Roman calendar which shifts one day per year! The Roman church and government inserted the pagan God worship day Deis Solis into the Gregorian calendar and made it first day of the week in 1572 to erase Jewish customs from their culture, and to attract former pagan sun worshipers to church so the government could control them. Most people refuse to change, having been marked by cherished traditions they have inherited from the beast, AND continue to practice Satan's inherited counterfeits even today. People have never wanted to change a tradition. Christ himself asked why do you break the law of Yahuwah because of your tradition? Touch NOT the unclean things (a conditional statement) and I will receive you! The true Bible sabbaths are the seventh days within the moon cycle calendar that God established at creation! The seventh days within the Gregorian Calendar are NOT his sabbath because day one of the Gregorian calendar began at the end of 8 day Julian calendar weeks, and Christ arose on first fruits of Yahuwah's calendar-NOT sun god day! No scripture read in proper context makes the sabbath not binding for modern Christians, as prophecy tells us that God's calendar and the 7th days within it are still kept in heaven and on the new earth, and Hebrews, a NEW Testament book, calls not keeping sabbath an example of unbelief! Yes, google and dig. You will discover that it is your sabbath too!
Because of this truth, we will be closed the following Gregorian Calendar days in 2023 because these are seventh days in the lunar calendar that Christ used as Yahuwah commanded. Sundays 7-2-23, 7-9-23, 7-16-23, 10-22-23, 10-29-23, 11-5-23, 11-12-23. Mondays 11-20-23, 11-27-23, 12-4-23, 12-11-23. Tuesdays 7-25-23, 8-1-23, 8-8-23, 8-15-23. Wednesdays 12-20-23, 12-27-23. Thursdays 8-24-23, 8-31-23, 9-7-23, 9-14-23. Fridays 9-22-23, 9-29-23, 10-6-23, 10-13-23,
It is important to be prepared when you come pick up your pet, or to facetime and choose a pet. Please don't request facetime with pups if you are not a serious buyer ready to reserve or take your puppy home. Bathing tiny puppies unnecessarily is not good for them. The bio secure way to view the puppies is through facetime, google duo, or through facebook messenger video chat. Please do a good job watching our puppy videos BEFORE you call to schedule facetime. Please CALL me at 8:00 am of the morning you want to view pups through facetime or come for curbside pickup appointments!
Did you know? 10 families per week get lost or waste much time when coming to visit here because they didn't read this page and made the mistake of thinking Mapquest or GPS can give better directions that someone who actually lives here.
The purpose of this web site is to educate you and give you the opportunity to learn about pet issues and try to decide what type of pet you will like better later before our virtual visit. Viewing the puppy videos will help you to determine which pets you like best before we begin virtual visits, and make your selection process easier.
Please make a viewing appointment AFTER your spouse, children, LANDLORD, etc, are in agreement THAT YOU CAN HAVE A PET, that you are reasonably sure of the type of pet you want, and you are financially able to have a puppy. For busy families who may have problems with everyone being home at a specific time to Facetime, updated video clips may be a better choice! We want to keep our pets healthy. Please do not come here after visiting others to see puppies. We love our pets and we love you, but we are not the puppy petting zoo.
Never come here without calling us before you leave home. We often take up to 50 telephone calls per day. This amount of communication can be overwhelming and can make it hard to remember appointments! Please call to make sure that we have had no unexpected emergencies and that we don't forget you! WE WILL BE AVAILABLE ON THE PHONE ALMOST ALL THE TIME TO PROVIDE ASSISTANCE IF YOU SHOULD BECOME CONFUSED OR GET LOST WHEN TRAVELING TO pick up your puppy, so don't drive around lost. I had much rather help you than wait on you:) Please turn in the main drive beside our sign, park your vehicle near the carport, and CALL me when you arrive. I am here to help! (336) 957-3609
