Beginning November 16, 2013 I will be joining a very large number of other breeders across the U.S. in no longer shipping puppies. Due to a change that was made in federal regulations that was supposedly intended to only affect breeders who are unlicensed and uninspected, anyone who ships even ONE puppy will have to be licensed through USDA. State licensed and inspected breeders like myself were not exempted from this ruling. All sales must take place at the breeder's premises.

This ruling is going to seriously curtail the choice of those wishing to buy the puppy of their choice unless you are willing to drive to your breeder of choice regardless of distance. As written this will also affect service dogs being made available to those in need.

While we do understand the need to track down those who operate illegally, don't properly care for their breeding dogs and sell sick puppies, we already have state and federal laws that address those things. If you would like to help us fight this bad choice of regulation policy, please contact me or your breeder of choice to see what you can do to help. It is YOUR right to be able to buy a puppy from whoever you choose and to pick up personally or have your puppy shipped to you or to meet your breeder at a mutually agreed upon place to save you travel time and it SHOULD remain OUR right to offer you those choices without government interference !
