Bringing puppy home is a very exciting time for everyone, especially the puppy!
We keep our babies a little longer than many other breeders and do not allow them to leave until approx 12 weeks of age in order to give them the best start possible. Our Puppies are generally quite small and they normally require a bit more time with mom before they can be safely weaned. We also ensure that they have had enough time to get both 1st and 2nd puppy vaccinations which can not be effectively completed until around this age. And, by keeping our babies here a little longer, we are able to feel comfortable that they are psychologically able to handle the stress that a move to a new home can bring.
A lthough the average age is 12 weeks before our Puppies can leave, there are exceptions. Extremely tiny puppies, or puppies travelling long distances will need to wait a bit longer. We normally judge each puppy individually and therefore, cannot set specific take home dates far in advance.
W e appreciate that new owners are very anxious to welcome their new baby into their home, but we hope you will understand that we all want what is best for the Puppy!
