Driving Directions-Plan A Visit!
HOURS: We are normally open for pet pickups 6 days per week by appointment only, including most Sunday mornings! Call to schedule a facetime, facebook messenger live session, or a curbside puppy pickup- (336 ) 957-3609. To protect our pets from human bourne infections, and to reduce unexpected veterinary expenses for our puppy buyers, we raise the puppies in strict quarantinue. Buyers must choose a pet by first viewing their puppy online and requesting additional facetime with it if needed. Due to the risks of Covid 19 exposure for humans, we began to show pets electronically with visitors picking them up curbside. The unexpected wonderful results of this have been fewer health problems in our puppies! We have learned through Covid quanitine that the respiratory or other viruses from past years have been brought mostly by kids with runny noses petting the puppies, or by puppy shoppers visiting sick puppies owned by other breeders before coming to see us and sharing viruses with our pets. A puppy virus can mean an expensive visit to the emergency vet, so a wise buyer like you would not want to buy a puppy from a seller who allowed public to play with it before they might choose to take it home anyway! Because viruses are highly contagious to other puppies, we have decided to continue to raise the puppies in strict quarantine, show them electronically, and not allow visitors to play with them until they come for curbside pickup. Personality is not an issue with a properly bred dog. The purebred dogs that have neen 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! Because neither of us can afford to have sick puppies, we will continue to offer curbside pickup and possible deliveries only! Our normal business hours are 10am til 4pm six days per week 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 my religious views on you, but posted so you understand our business days and hours, and so you are less likely to think I'm crazy:) If you don't want to know, then skip the remainder of this paragraph. 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, I take my bible study very seriously! SO, in obedience to truth after thousands of study hours, 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). These counterfiet days come from Satan and paganism instead of the Bible. The Roman church and government inserted the pagan God worship days into the Gregorian calendar 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, AND continue to practice Satan's inherited counterfeits even today. The true Bible sabbaths are the seventh days within the moon cycle calendar that God established at creation. The scriptures tell us that Christ was crucified on Passover and arose on First Fruits, as determined by God's original moon cycle calendar-not Gregorian Calendar Friday and Sunday. The seventh days within the Gregorian Calendar are NOT his sabbath. 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! Yes, google and dig. You will discover that it is your sabbath too!
We will be closed the following days in 2021. Fridays 7-10-21, 11-12-21, 11-19-21, 11-26-21, 12-3-21. Saturdays , 7-17-21, 7-24-21, 7-31-21, 8-7-21, 12-11-21, 12-18-21, 12-25-21, 1-1-22. Mondays 8-16-21, 8-23-21, 8-30-21, 9-6-21. Tuesdays 9-14-21, 9-21-21, 9-28-21. 10-5-21. Thursdays 10-14-21, 10-21-21, 10-28-21, 11-4-21.
It is important to be prepared when you come pick up your pet, or to facetime and choose a pet. Please do not visit here if you have a respiratory infection in your family group or if you have visited other puppies. You can be a bio hazard risk. 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, and can be a pneumonia risk. 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 don't make a virtual viewing appointment until you, 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 that you are financially prepared to have a puppy. Please do not visit here after visiting others to see puppies.
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 walk behind our home and down to the basement area under the home. Please call me when you arrive. I am here to help! (336) 957-3609
