Frequently Asked
Questions & Answers

Holding Fees - Deposits
To hold  a puppy until its ready to go to its new home a NON-REFUNDABLE holding fee is required. We CANNOT hold a puppy for you without a holding fee. 
These deposits are NON-TRANSFERABLE.
Right to refuse...

We have the right to choose where our babies go, we also have the right to refuse our puppies to anyone we are not comfortable with.

Why do we charge what we do?
We put an enormous amount of time and care into our babies before we send them to their new homes. We raise all of our babies in our homes, not in kennels. We feel this makes all the difference in the world. We also keep our numbers low, which each family having just a few dogs. Puppies are very socialized, loved and cared for. We want them to go to the best homes we can find for them. We have them vet checked, on a deworming schedule, 1st shots, dew claws removed, Registration paper work, unless noted otherwise the list goes on. 
When do we let our babies go to their new homes?

Our babies are usually ready to go to their new homes when they reach 8-10 weeks old. In some cases we may hold one longer due to the puppy being too tiny to leave.

Do we ship puppies?

We will NEVER ship our puppies alone in cargo, please do not ask.  

We have put a lot thought into deciding the best options for delivering our babies across the country and have entrusted in our very own Puppy Nanny, Monty. He loves the babies as much as we do and is Stacy's husband. We decided our own family members were the best option to fly with our babies.  Monty has done a fantastic job for us!  Prices start at $650.  

We encourage you to come pick up your baby in person, when possible.  We are located in Fond du Lac, WI and Shawano, WI areas.

What is Hypoglycemia?

THE FOLLOWING IS THE BEST ADVICE I'VE EVER FOUND ON THIS PREVENTABLE CONDITION IN SMALL PUPPY BREEDS. 


HYPOGLYCEMIA, LOW BLOOD SUGAR, IS A DISORDER THAT OCCURS MAINLY IN SMALL BREED PUPPIES BETWEEN 6 AND 12 WEEKS OF AGE. IT IS OFTEN PRECIPITATED BY STRESS AND CAN OCCUR WITHOUT WARNING. IT MIGHT APPEAR AFTER THE PUPPY HAS BEEN SHIPPED, GOES TO A NEW HOME, MISSES A MEAL, CHILLS, BECOMES EXHAUSTED FROM PLAYING, HAS BEEN OVER HANDLED, OR HAS A DIGESTIVE UPSET. THESE UPSETS PLACE AN ADDED STRAIN ON IT'S ENERGY RESERVE AND BRING ON THE SYMPTOMS.


HYPOGLYCEMIA IS A REAL THREAT TO THESE TINY PUPPIES, WATCH FOR YOUR PUPPY TO BECOME TIRED OR DROOPY. THE FIRST SIGNS ARE THOSE OF LISTLESSNESS AND DEPRESSION. THEY ARE FOLLOWED BY MUSCULAR WEAKNESS, TREMORS, AND LATER CONVULSIONS, COMA AND EVEN DEATH. THE PUPPY MAY APPEAR DEPRESSED OR MAY BE WEAK, WOBBLY AND JERKY, OR THE PUPPY MAY BE FOUND IN A COMA.


IF YOUR PUPPY HAS ANY SYMPTOMS OF HYPOGLYCEMIA YOU MUST ACT FAST. IF THE PUPPY IS AWAKE, GIVE IT NUTRI-CAL OR KARO SYRUP BY MOUTH. YOU SHOULD SEE SIGNS OF IMPROVEMENT IN 30 MINUTES. IF NO IMPROVEMENT, THEN CALL YOUR VETERINARIAN AT ONCE.

PREVENT HYPOGLYCEMIA FROM HAPPENING BY ALLOWING ONLY 20 MINUTES OF PLAY AT A TIME, FOLLOWED BY REST OR SLEEP. DO NOT ALLOW THE PUPPY TO OVERTIRE OR BE OVER HANDLED AT FIRST. SUPERVISE CLOSELY WITH CHILDREN TO MAKE SURE THE PUPPY IS GETTING ENOUGH REST. KEEP PUPPY WARM, DON'T LET IT BECOME CHILLED. YOUR PUPPY IS A HOUSE DOG AND SHOULD NOT BE LIVING OUTDOORS.


 PREVENT ATTACKS BY FEEDING A HIGH QUALITY DIET. SEE THAT THE PUPPY IS EATING OFTEN. JUST BECAUSE THE FOOD IS THERE DOESN'T MEAN IT IS EATING IT. KEEP DRY FOOD AND WATER AVAILABLE AT ALL TIMES. YOU CAN GIVE 1/2 TEASPOON OF NUTRI-CAL OR KARO MORNING AND NIGHT FOR THE FIRST WEEK TO HELP PREVENT THE LOW BLOOD SUGAR THAT CAN COME WITH THE EXCITEMENT AND STRESS OF GOING TO A NEW HOME.
