Guardian Opportunities Now!
The one time payment is $800.
For an extremely discounted price, you can own one of these incredible dogs. We are looking for guardian families that live within an hour of Winter Haven, Florida. We need to get to know you, since you will be an important part of our lives! You get a pick of the litter puppy with this program!
Since we do not believe in kenneling dogs and in order for us to expand our breeding program, we have implemented the guardian home program. This ensures that all of our future breeding dogs will be raised as a family member in a loving home environment as our dogs are raised here in our home. Your puppy will be “pick of the litter” chosen by us to be a breeding dog and we will retain breeding rights for the life of the Guardian Home Contract.
Our breeding dogs live in our home as family members and we would expect the same with a guardian home.
A guardian family must be willing and able to loan the dog back to us for health testing, breeding, whelping, and raising puppies. After the dog is finished with their breeding career, they will be spayed/neutered at breeder’s expense and the ownership of the dog transferred to the guardian home family. Any costs relating to health testing and breeding will be the responsibility of the breeder. Normal yearly wellness care is the responsibility of the guardian home. As a breeding dog, the name will be chosen by us, or we can choose a name together that we agree on.
