Q: Should I buy a male or a female puppy?
A: Most male puppies neutered promply at 6 months of age will always squat to urinate like a female. Males are also often more confident than females, and are therefore less likely to urinate in the floor by accident when they get nervous or excited! With all other things in the environment being equal, male puppies seem to like women better, while female pups often prefer men! Although a high percentage of our puppies are likely to love most family members, there can sometimes be an advantage in choosing a pup opposite the sex of the pup's intended favorite person! So many women are in love with a look or with the idea of putting dresses on their pet or putting bows in its ears, that they improve the chances that the dog won't like them as their favorite person just because they bought a female puppy. The fact that so many of these female "girlie" pets are childish also contributes to this situation, because these are the pets that most often prefer men over female owners. It seems that every little girl thinks she wants a female puppy. I would recommend a male puppy for female owners, because females often like men better. I have had many complaints from women over the years that their female pet prefers a male family member, and doesn't like them! A male puppy neutered at the correct time is no more likely to raise his leg than the female is to be nervous and tinkle. It is also common for young girls to be in love with the idea of dressing female puppies in pink, putting bows in the hair, etc. A male puppy does not know that he is not a girl:) He will not mind that his clothes and bows are pink, and you don't have to tell your friends that he is not a girl! You can also save money by choosing a male also, since we often sell males cheaper (because 75% of our puppies are born males). It is also much cheaper to get males neutered than to spay females.
Q: When is a puppy old enough to go home?
A: Most puppy buyers are deceived to believe that it is OK for any puppy to go home as soon as it is no longer nursing it's mother. This is true for many large breeds, but can be a recipe for disaster for toy size puppies. The most common cause of puppies being taken to the emergency vet for thousands in energency IV's, etc, is being taken home too soon to endure the stress of travel, being handled excessively, and adapting to a new home. This happens most often when families try to make puppies fit into their vacation, work schedule, or special event gift giving plans. More and more parents try to give their children what the child wants with no regard for what actually works. A small child will often take home a puppy that would fit into their pocket if the breeder and their parents would let them; very often to watch it die after about 3 days. Most small breeds should be at least 10 weeks old before going home, but any age up to 6 months is an ideal time. A three month or older puppy is a great age to endure the stress of going to your home, playing with an existing pet, or with your child. You can also save hundreds by getting a puppy with the puppy shot schedule already completed and have the peace of mind in knowing that your puppy is not likely to get parvo virus! ! The slightly older puppies are most often available in the Fall when a few puppies remain because they were not taken due to vacation season and October syndrome- when hundreds of families won't buy til Christmas, when they all land here to fight over them at the same time. Yes, we will work with you to reserve a pet to go home at a specific time. We will gladly hold any pet for you if you place a deposit on it- up to 12 weeks for free; $5.00/day to cover our expenses between 12 weeks and the time you pick up the puppy!

We are a family owned nursery and rescue (not a pet store or brokerage service). Consumer research statistics suggest that 50% of American puppy buyers immediately spent more at the vet than they paid for their puppies, and 1 of 3 pups died after excessive vet bills. Up to 50% of puppies adopted from public shelters, and up to 30% of pups nationwide, have died from parvovirus alone because parvovirus vaccines were not done beginning at 5 weeks of age. It takes years of hands on experience to do a better job with health care for baby animals. Pet owners and other inexperienced care givers only know how to pet puppies, and may even lie about vaccines given. A huge vet bill is too often the result of buying from a scammer, pet owner, or from an inexperienced care giver. We at HealthyPups provide a care standard with more than 30 years experience! OUR pets receive 2 doses of Neopar parvovirus vaccine BEFORE going to their new homes. Vaccine sellers have repeatedly commented that Neopar is often the only vaccine that seems to consistently stop the spread of viruses in sick animal populations. Are OUR pets the ONLY pets that get 2 doses of Neopar prior to sale? Shouldn't YOUR puppy be a HealthyPup?
Shouldn't your new puppy come from a nursery with more than 30 years experience?

•Up to 50% of puppies adopted through public shelter adoption programs, and 30% of puppies world wide from novice care givers, die from viruses alone after huge vet bills. Some older pets in our nation are dying from distemper now, simply because their puppy shots were not done properly. Shouldn't your puppy be a HealthyPup with proper vaccines and wellness exam ALREADY DONE beginning at 5 weeks of age? Our record speaks for itself; 0 pets lost to viral illnesses for many years now!
•Our puppies have begun their proper CRATE TRAINING (NOT confusing pad or paper training in the home of an inexperienced pet owner).
•It is not a good idea to teach puppies to urinate on pads or paper unless you always want them to do so, because it can cause some pets to become confused and potty on rugs or other objects in the floor by accident later!
•It is also not a good idea to buy a puppy that was raised in a pet owner home. Most of these have already been accidentally pre-trained to urinate in the floor of their next home, unless you think buying pads and cleaning them would be more convenient for you than your pet going outside! We also raise many hybrid mixes, which are always easy to house train!

If visiting the kennel to pick up a pet in person, please PARK your vehicle in our concrete drive located beside our kennel sign. Please do not drive to the kennel unless you are handicapped and unable to walk. Your vehicle near the kennel can upset moms and cause them to accidentally injure or kill newborn puppies. Please do not wear flip-flops when coming to see pets, because these can slip on a concrete floor.
PUPPIES LOOK MUCH LARGER ON VIDEO THAN THEY ACTUALLY ARE. PLEASE WATCH THE ENTIRE VIDEO! I HAVE ATTEMPTED TO CREATE PERSPECTIVE. WE OFFER AN HONEST LOOK AT PUPPIES FOR SALE IN PRESENT CONDITION, ETC, NOT CUTE, PHOTOSHOPPED, MISREPRESENTED PHOTOS! I often have people visit to buy pets they have chosen on video, only to change their mind and buy a larger puppy when they see them in person, because many worry that the puppy they had chosen is too small and fragile.
For those of you have done a good job reading my material, I do apologize for repeatedly reposting some of this material. It is impossible to get some to read at all, and it is an even greater challenge to inform some folks to the point that we can be sure there's a reasonable chance we can have a mutually successful kennel visit!

Our care standard includes the following veterinary care ALREADY DONE at specific ages. Minimum recommended age of adoption is 10 weeks, with any pet older than 10 weeks being a better value and more secure investment because of decreased risk of disease and stress related adaptive issues (travel, playing with children or other pets, etc). 5 weeks-Neopar. 7 weeks-Nobivac 5way. 9-10 weeks-Neopar. 13 weeks-Nobivac. 16 weeks Nobivac. 20 weeks Nobivac. Rabies can be done at 16 weeks of age. Puppies also have had fecal analysis and correction for parasites and bacterial imbalances that can cause problems in the near future. They get Ivomec Topical to prevent Sarcoptic and Demodectic Mange, Ear Mites, Fleas, and Ticks. Specific wormers are also given as needed. Coccidiostat is used to prevent protozoa. Heart worm preventatives are also up to date. Because one of every three pups sold in the US die from parvo virus each year, and because Neopar seems to be the only vaccine that is protecting against mutated strains of the virus, our goal is that your pet get TWO doses of Neopar BEFORE it goes home, and does not need veterinary care until booster vaccines are due! NOTHING is more important for your puppy than 2 doses of Neopar. A wise buyer should not adopt even a free puppy that did not get 2 Neopar vaccines! For those who want a healthy puppy with no immediate vet bills, NO PUPPY, not even a FREE puppy, is likely to be CHEAPER than ours!
