Applications containing incomplete answers will NOT be considered.  All of our puppies are sold as pets only.  They may or may NOT come with an AKC Limited Registration application.  They will all be sold with spay/neuter contracts. This means that the dog is eligible to be registered, (if papers are supplied) however, none of the offspring are eligible for registration. In other words, this dog is NOT to be bred. A dog with Limited Registration, as well as a spayed/neutered dog can compete in all AKC events except in the Conformation (Breed) ring. Full registration considered only for known and approved small breeding programs. We do not sell our puppies to large breeding programs, kennels, puppy mills, flippers, or brokers. A non-refundable deposit and a signed spay/ neuter agreement are required before the puppy is considered to be held for you.  Please see how to reserve a puppy on this site.
