A - Most of our puppies are 6-9 pounds at maturity. Although, we occasionally have a puppy who ends up a bit smaller or larger than that range.
Q - How many people are on your waiting list, and how long does it take to be able to bring my new baby home?
A - The number of people on our waiting list can vary throughout the year. People who are approved and join our waiting list usually get a puppy within a year. Most people who are open to either sex or color are able to have their new baby closer to 6 months or less from joining the waiting list. Email us for more information on the current number of names on the list.
Q - Do you ship your puppies?
A - No, we do not ship our puppies. We also do not like to do hired ground transportation services unless you are willing to hire someone who is making a direct drive to you (not making a round-half-the-country trip picking up and dropping off puppies along the route).
Q - What are the adoption fees for our puppies?
A - All of our companion puppies have the same adoption fee regardless of color or sex. Please email for the adoption fee. The adoption fees for show and/or breeding prospects can very based on age, training, etc. Trust me, you are almost always going to pay much less for a TFT from a reputable breeder than you would from a pet store. Pet store puppies generally come from puppy mills or breeders who do not care where their puppies end up. Breeders who care about their puppies want to be involved in the decision on where their puppies end up to better make sure they all go to good homes.
Q - What color of puppies are you expecting?
A - We usually have tri-colored (white, black and tan) puppies. We occasionally plan to have white and tan puppies as well.
Q - What health testing do you do?
A - We test for CHG, PLL, SCA, and DM. We also certify our dogs' patellas with the Orthopedic Foundation for Animals (OFA), and we test for liver function as well. We perform all of these test measures prior to breeding our dogs. Since we are talking about living and breathing lives, we cannot guarantee that other things can't go wrong, but we try our best to breed for healthy puppies.
Q - I have a male dog now, and I want to add another puppy to our family. Should I get another male or a female pup?
A - We recommend if you are going to have two dogs, that it is best to have one of each sex. We also have had many people over the years who have adopted two males or two females and have had no issues.
