HOW IT ALL BEGAN

 

After my third child was born, my 9-5 job became much more difficult. My middle child struggled with sickness and spent a lot of time in the hospital.   We finally came to the decision that it made more financial sense for me to stay home with the kids. Even so, we found ourselves in need of some extra income. After some thought we decided to try raise a litter of pugs and a litter of beagle.

To be quite honest, I knew nothing about raising puppies, so it was a learning experience! During this time my vet was a God-send for their valuable education.  I crossed the breeds and had my first litter of “puggles”, falling in love with puppies.  In addition, I felt so blessed to be able to stay at home with my children.Through the years, I’ve watched these beautiful babies go to new forever homes and make families happy and lots of memories.

That alone fulfills my heart.  At this point in my life (as life changes), I am a single mom and kids are just about raised and out the door. Through the difficult times, my puppies and dogs have kept me going. To have a reason to get up and take care of animals everyday is really a blessing.  I love the adults and every time a baby is born, it is still truly magical.  Never would have dreamed that this would be the road I took in my life, but it sure has been a blessing to me in many ways.

OUR SERVICES

All puppies begin potty training at two weeks old, learning how to use a doggie-door to go to the bathroom outside by the time they are 8 weeks old. From the time the puppies are only a few days old, they’ll receive daily socialization and hands on play. They will be introduced to environmental complexity such as smells, home sounds, objects and flooring textures.  We believe in letting nature takes its natural course, therefore the mom is allowed to wean her puppies herself which decreases stress but also teaches submissiveness and dominance- making training much easier.

All puppies are up to date on puppy vaccinations including a Parvo booster, they are dewormed bi-weekly and microchipped. We offer a one-year health guarantee against any congenital defects, a health certificate, and report for Veterinary Exam indicating good health.

DELIVERY

Transportation anywhere in the USA or Canada is optional via air or ground. We’ve been transporting puppies for over 16 years which is very safe and fast.  We deliver the puppies generally at St. Louis Lambert Airport and they will fly out early morning, unless a later flight is requested. You will receive an airway bill number to track the flight. The puppy will arrive in the cargo facility of your airport and will be ready for pickup 45-60 minutes after arrival. The puppy is never touched by human hands and remains in a crate large enough for the puppy to turn around comfortably. The crate has bedding, food and water. No toys are allowed inside the crate. We highly recommend waiting until you get home to take your puppy out of the crate due to nervousness and risk of diseases (Parvo) on public flooring.  All paperwork will be taped to the top of the crate (Vet report, vaccination/deworming record, microchip information).
