A guardian home is basically a permanent home for one of our breeding girls or boys. We would place either a male or female dog (not spayed/neutered) into your home and retain breeding rights. After passing pre-breeding tests, a guardian dog will come back to us to whelp a litter of puppies. This is a way that our adult dogs can be a part of a family. Once the dog has whelped and raised her litter, she will return to the guardian family. After the contract has been fulfilled, the dog will be spayed/neutered and placed in the guardian family's home. Ownership will be transferred to the guardian family.
For the males, the dog will have to be available to us for breeding at certain times of the year. He can either visit us for a short time of the day or we can keep him here for a few days.
Is there a cost for a Guardian Home?
We do not charge for our guardian dogs, HOWEVER, you must be within a reasonable driving distance (up to 2 hours away).
How many litters will my dog have?
This depends on the age of the dog. Our guardian dogs have a maximum of 4 litters, and males are in the guardian home program until they are 6-7 years old.
How do I apply to be a guardian home?
There are requirements to be a guardian family. We don't just place our dogs with anyone hoping to get a free dog. We prefer that there is another dog in the family. This is not a requirement but a preference. We do however require that the dog is not left at home for 10 hours a day, 5 days a week. Home offices are a plus! Our preference is that someone is home for most of the day - a stay at home parent or a retired couple. Our dogs are used to someone being home for the majority of the day. They love attention and love all ages! Please send us an email or give us a call regarding becoming a guardian family!
Non-negotiable requirement - you must have a fully fenced yard; physical fence not underground. Please do not contact us for a guardian dog if you do not have a fence, as we will not change our minds. Sorry.
