Most of our dogs are retired between 3-5 years of age. 

Our females have 1-3 litters, but some of our lucky boys get a bit more fun than that, before they retire! Once retired, these wonderful companions are spayed or neutered and live out their days with the same family that has been their family since they were pups. 

That is right! All of our dogs live with their own families, and come back to us briefly for breeding. 

We call this arrangement our Guardian Program. 

This is great news for our breeding dogs! It means no one lives in a kennel. It means all of our mothers and fathers are pets too! However, if you are looking to adopt an adult dog, we often do not have any.

Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge

When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.

All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor. Those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind. 

They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent. His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster. 

You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart. 

Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....
