From time to time we do have adult dogs that we are retiring or we are rearranging our program and these dogs aren't what we will continue with in a line or breed. We love them, but, we cannot realistically keep them all and want them to find exceptional caring and loving homes. This is the very first item in this process. You must be caring and loving.
There are basic rules for adopting one of our adult dogs.
1. No other dogs in your home. Not only do we feel they deserve someone's undivided attention, but, they are used to this "pack" in our home. Us, the other dogs and cats - from puppy to adulthood and we cannot nor do we wish to have anyone involved work hard at assimilation to another home where another dog has already claimed as their territory.
2. You will introduce them into your peripheral world gently. They were raised in the country with us. If you live in town this will all be new. New noises, new people, new neighbor or friends pets. As much as you wish to submerge them into your lifestyle, our focus is their comfortable assimilation and your want or need to to show them off, rush them on your schedule and not theirs is, frankly, of no consequence to us. The dog comes first in this.
3. The rehoming fee is the cost of the spay or neuter, paid to our veterinarian and completed with 5 days of recoup here, in our home, prior to going to yours. This is not negotiable.
4. A fenced yard.
5. No small children in your home.
6. Continued use of food they are accustomed to and yearly vaccinations, monthly worming and all other forms of appropriate care. Grooming is essential. They will mat and need brushed daily and groomed professionally at least every 3 months.
7. They live their lives indoors and will not be yard dogs.
8. A commitment to this process. If you have any doubt that you can afford, be caring, loving and patient, will put the dog outside and leave it there, have no clue how to care for a dog, or, just want one and don't realize the responsibility please DO NOT continue with this process.
