How do I see your puppies?Cody Vance2018-10-25T12:53:55-04:00
The owners do breed a few dogs (yorkies, dachshunds, and pugs), but most of our puppies come from outside breeders. All breeders are licensed by the United States Department of Agriculture, their state, and county. AKC also inspects and regulates our breeders.
Do you visit the parents of the puppies?Cody Vance2018-10-25T08:57:17-04:00
The logistics of being able to have pictures of all the parents of each puppy we sell is just not possible. This is also true of the rescue’s we offer as we may not have access to their parent’s pics or info. If your puppy is one that the owner bred, then we can send you a picture of the parents.

How does rescuing a dog work?Cody Vance2018-10-25T08:57:53-04:00
Hypoglycemia is a condition in young dogs when there are rapid increases or decreases in glucose levels. This is also known as Transient Juvenile Hypoglycemia. The condition is popular within puppies because they are still adapting and can be unable to regulate glucose levels the way that adult dogs are able too. Puppies need to eat often to help stabilize their glucose levels. Typically, a puppy will eat three to four times per day. Hypoglycemia is most common in toy breed puppies that are less than three months old.
There are several signs that indicate your puppy has hypoglycemia. The first is lack of energy. It is natural for puppies to sleep a lot. Like babies, they need to sleep so that their bodies can rest and grow. This is one of the most common signs that are associated with hypoglycemia. Glucose is necessary to provide energy for the puppy. If your puppy seems weak and listless then it is possible they have developed hypoglycemia.
Glucose also plays a vital role in the development and function of muscles and brain tissue. When these levels drop extremely low in puppies it can cause seizures. Seizures are dangerous for puppies especially because they are still growing and the shaking caused by the seizure can actually cause substantial damage to the puppy. It is also possible for puppies to become comatose as a result of dangerously low glucose levels. It is important that puppy owners watch for the first symptom of listlessness to avoid the development of worse symptom of hypoglycemia.
Lack of appetite and coordination including twitching, dilated pupils and trembling and pale pink or white gums are additional signs of hypoglycemia in puppies. This is not a hard condition to diagnose. In fact pet owners should notice a substantial deviation from normal behavior if a puppy has developed hypoglycemia.
Treatment for hypoglycemia in puppies is fairly simple. A veterinarian can help pet owners determine the best course of action to help bring the puppy to full health right away. Typically it involves keeping the puppy in a warm environment and implementing a feeding schedule of up to four times per day. The puppy will also need to be dewormed and maintain regular vaccinations. Hypoglycemia is easily treatable and will provide minimal damage to the body if it is caught in time. This is why it is important that pet owners pay attention to any changes in their dog’s behavior.
There are many challenges to owning a new puppy. Monitoring a puppy for changes in activity, eating, sleeping or behavior will help quickly identify if there is something going on. This is true for a variety of illnesses that puppies can develop. Your local veterinarian should have a variety of pamphlets on various conditions that young dogs can develop which includes signs and symptoms to watch out for. Generally, early detection and constant love and care are all that it takes to help bring a puppy back to his healthful state.
Will my puppy be potty trained?Angela Hilty2018-10-25T08:58:05-04:00
All of our puppies are potty trained in the “Puppy Housing Method.” This is the method that allows the puppy an area to “go potty” in while they are still in their kennel. From the day your puppy begins to walk, it is able to start being potty trained.
We accidentally discovered this method after our customers continued to tell us that our puppies were potty trained the day they got them home. We thought some of our customers were just over exaggerating until we continued to hear this news over and over again. Just read some of our testimonials and you will quickly see that most mention that their puppy potty trained very easily, or was already potty trained.
How it works – The “Puppy Housing Method” is a kennel that is set up with two sides. One side they can sleep in and they other side they can use the bathroom in. This is most easily done with a double doored kennel. Place a bed in one side and a potty pad in the other. Your new puppy does not want to potty where he sleeps, so he/she will walk over to the other side (on the pad) and use the potty. The key to this is when you are home, you leave the second door to the kennel open (the one that has the potty pad in it) and they will run in to it (with little or no training) when they have to go.
What if I do not want to use this method? The great thing about this method is that it can be re-trained to the outside. The fact of the matter is, the puppy knows that he/she has to go to the bathroom in a designated area. All you have to do is show them where that designated area is.
Sound simple….it is….because we have started them out the right way from day one.
