For Sale/Planned Breedings

March 3, 2018

For those who have reserved a pup from Sage and Rocky, I palpated her today and she is in fact pregnant. Once I determine a dog is pregnant, I stop feeling around so whether she’ll have 2 or 10 is anyone’s guess. Assuming all goes well, we expect pups to be born the first week in April.

Sage came into heat and has been bred to Rocky. Assuming the breeding was successful, we expect pups due around the first week in April. As soon as we know whether the breeding was successful, we will post it here and on our facebook page. I can usually detect if a dog is pregnant around day 26 after being bred. Let’s hope for a successful breeding and a nice litter of pups!!

FYI – This litter is sold out.

Our planned litters for 2018 are currently sold out. We will take a few names in the event there are cancellations. We have not decided what our breeding plans are for 2019 yet.


Predicting Breeding Dates and When Pups Will Be Available

The time period between heat cycles can vary considerably… Dogs usually do not come into heat every 6 months. It can vary from 4 to 10 or 12 months between cycles, so it is difficult for us to predict when one of our dogs will come into heat. I keep records of all heat cycles so I know when a dog had her last heat cycle, but trying to determine if that dog will come back into heat again in 4, 6, or 10 months is really a shot in the dark. So, when we post a planned breeding keep in mind that it could take place within a period of several weeks to a few months from our best estimate.
