How do I adopt a puppy?
We typically work on a referral basis from our previous clients and therapists. For those that are new to the breed, please be sure to read the site to familiarize yourself with our breeding program and practices.  We are very small and the wait can be long, but the puppies are worth the wait.  In order to raise the quality of puppies that our families have come to expect,  we do have limited litters.  Feel free to email for current wait times.  Typically when we re-open the waiting list, it will fill up quickly.  
If you planning ahead and understand that we are ultimately in the hands of mother nature as far as litter timing-- the first step is to introduce yourself and fill out our adoption application on the site.  Once approved, a NON-REFUNDABLE reservation fee will be required to reserve your place on the waiting list.   
If I change my mind, can I get my reservation fee back?
All reservation fees are non-refundable under any circumstance.   If you have been approved for the waiting list and submitted your reservation fee, this is your commitment to us, and we are equally committed to your family.   
How can we receive our puppy?
We plan a special delivery trip to all Western Wa and Northern Or families!  This is our way of ensuring the puppies all have a safe journey and we also get to meet our families, too!  If you live long distance, we can arrange a puppy nanny service to deliver to you, or most families   fly into one of the nearby airports and pick up their puppy.  If we can arrange this on delivery day, we can meet at Seatac in Seattle.  During the week it will depend on schedules and where we happen to be at the time.  We can discuss this when its time! 
Where are you located?
We are in the PNW, we have two homes-- one in Eastern Wa, one on the Oregon Coast. Depending on the time of year, we can be at either location.  We always plan our delivery trips per litter-- so we have you covered!
How do we select our puppy?
We have pages on the site explaining the process in detail!  It's a fun process- we take pictures of the puppies when they are ready to be selected, after vet exams and completed assessments.   Then when this is complete and we have a full picture of each individual puppy, we contact the families next in line for the Selection Day.  For those needing therapy, service, ESA potentials, or with particular family needs, we are here to help you select the best option for your home and situation.   
How long is the typical wait for a puppy?
Depending on the time of year and how full the waiting list is, it can be six months +.  Of course if a family has a specific service need, this is something we have to be patient to wait for the right puppy to fill those shoes.  We do have many families that decide to wait for a different litter, and in that event we always contact the waiting list to let them know.  So there is always an opportunity to adopt sooner!  Remember, that if you waive your option to select,  that could mean a longer wait (if you are waiting for a particular color especially)-- we have no control of litter timing, size or colors.  While we do our best to have estimated timeframes, Mother Nature is ultimately in control.   Sometimes heat cycles can run late, or a skipped heat, breeding resulting in no pregnancy.  All of these situations are out of our hands and when you join the waiting list, that means you accept these factors and are willing to wait for your time to select.   We do expect our families to understand this.  We can't force nature! We promise, they are sooo worth the wait!
Do you have a guarantee?
Yes indeed we do!  We stand behind our dogs, and offer a 5 year guarantee against life threatening illnesses.
