We do work side by side with Beach Bum Pugs. So if you are interested in a Pug just let us know.
Deworming: We are doing our best to use natural dewormers such as Diatomaceous Earth. However it does not work as well as I would like it to for small puppies especially when they have not been weened yet. So at this time I am using Nemex 2 to deworm mom when the pups are 2 weeks old, so they get their deworming through mom's milk. At 4 weeks they get their dose of Nemex 2 as well as a good probiotic. Once they begin to ween, usually around 4 weeks old, they will be getting a small amount of DE in their diet on a regular basis to control parasites. I am trying to get off of the chemicals and back to natural rearing.
let's be careful here. Remember that these puppies are very small
If you are interested
in more please let me know and I'll give you links to them as well.
Also please let me introduce you to some very knowledgeable people
with a ton of great information concerning this issue.

All puppies receive Early Neurological Stimulation to help them adjust better to situations as they grow. If you are interested in what this means you can go to the following website.
All puppies are also aptitude tested at 5 weeks to help us determine their method of training and personality. If you are interested in what we do and how they are scored you can go to the following website.
We do not take deposits on puppies until they reach at least two weeks old and are thriving. At that point we will start taking $200 deposits for the puppy of your choice. I have first choice, breeders choose next and then pet owners will be choosing by who puts down a deposit first and has handed in thier application. All choices must already have been made when you put a deposit on a puppy so that everyone doesn't have to wait while someone makes up their mind.
At this time, pricing is as follows:
All puppies sold as pets only (limited registration without breeding rights) unless previously approved before putting down a deposit. No female puppies will be sold with breeding rights if it is expected to be under 5 pounds at it's adult weight.
Our puppies are micro chipped before they go to your home. We pay for the lifetime registration of the microchip for you. Ears standing hopefully, tails are no longer docked, dewclaws are no longer removed. AKC registration pre-paid!!! They will go home with great puppy packs. A contract must be signed stated that these puppies are not to be resold or left at a shelter or abandoned. They are to be returned to us for the lifetime of the puppy if you cannot take care of them.
Our prices may not be the same each time. It highly depends on a few factors.
1.Our effort in raising the litter. Breeding and raising puppies is a 24 hour job. Some need to be bottle fed, some mom's need emergency c-sections, some need an incubator (which I am currently working on putting together and am very exited about having finally!!), staying up for a week with no sleep as babies have to be fed every two hours. We need to have pens for each litter and beds for mom's that want privacy. We feed vitamins and minerals and the best dog food we can get to each puppy once they are weaned. Each mom is given extra nutrients and exercise daily to help promote good health for pregnant moms. All litters are registered with AKC and are micro chipped through AKC Reunite. We pay for your lifetime registration of that microchip so you never have to worry about it. Some moms get milk eclampsia and require emergency care to stop them from having seizures and die. (We did have one girl that continued to have milk eclampsia no matter what we did. She is retired and not breeding anymore so we can enjoy her for years to come.) There is so much more that goes into raising and breeding these babies that the list could take me pages so I will stop here. If you would like to know more please call us and talk and we can answer questions you may have.
2.Market Value. We try to remain below market value for our puppies. Only because some prices just seem outrageous to us. However, we do our best to get the best sires and dams for our breeding program. We have paid anywhere from 1400 dollars to 2800 dollars for a puppy that we believe will be a great addition to our pack. We try to keep your prices lower so that you can enjoy these babies. However, we cannot go too low below market value as then we run the risk of “Puppy Flippers”. Puppy flippers make a career out of buying puppies below market value and selling them for a higher price to anyone that will pay for it. They don't care about the puppies and never keep track of where those puppies go. So, this is one reason you might see our prices fluctuate, as the market changes so will the price of our puppies.
3.Also, to be honest, we deserve to be paid market prices. We put so much effort in to raising our pups. We do our best to stay on top of current medical research and spend so much time learning, take courses, studying genetics, and anything else we can get our hands on to better our knowledge and understanding of dogs, breeding and raising puppies. I do everything I can to give you healthy, happy puppies that have been raised in a happy, healthy environment.
Please remember that what you are getting here is a living
being. Just like adopting a child we cannot guarantee you that this
puppy will never have problems. You may experience things such as
luxating patellas because the puppy jumped from too high of a platform
or was dropped, worms or fleas, collapsed larynx because the puppy
was pulling on the leash when you went for a walk. (This is also
why we highly recommend using a step in harness for your puppy.
Please do not attach leashes to collars and please try not to use
normal harness that sit too high on the chest). By the way a step
in does not cost more so is absolutely worth it to purchase one.
You are responsible for vet bills once the puppy leaves out home.
We do have doggie family reunions every year if possible. You are invited to come and we love seeing each and every puppy grow and then get back together with their litter mates and mom and dad! We also get to visit and have a good time and you get to meet the other puppy parents as well!
You will also be getting a pamphlet from us titled Before You Get Your Puppy and a Puppy Checklist to help you obtain whatever you may need and be prepared for your puppy to come home with you. These will go out to each person as they put down a deposit.
Email us and chat! We love to talk about our dogs and puppies and if we haven't answer any questions you may have here we can definitely try to answer them for you ! Thanks and have a wonderful day! Congratulations on your new little puppy.
