Guardian home is the term used for a family who has one of our amazing breeding dogs living in their home full time. The dog is placed with the guardian home at a minimal initial cost for the guardian, and stays with the guardian for the majority of his/her life. The guardian dog is the full-time pet of the guardian home except for when he/she is being bred, or whelping puppies. We do allow visitation during these times. We have exclusive breeding rights, so he/she can’t be bred to males or females outside our program. After a certain number of litters (6 for females, likely more for males), your pup will be spayed/neutered at our expense and continue living out the rest of his/her life with you-- the FURever family.
We love all of our dogs. We want to snuggle them, play with them, and get to know their personalities as we enjoy their company. In a perfect world, there would be no such thing as too many dogs! However, while that may be true for us, having all the dogs in our home is not always what is best for our dogs. Guardian homes allow each of our dogs to receive all the personalized love, attention and care they deserve. It gives our dogs the best lives possible—years spent with families who love and adore them as the family’s number one pet priority. It keeps our dogs out of kennels, and allows them to be pets first and foremost. They have two families looking out for their best interests- their guardian home family and our family. The guardian home program is fulfilling for the guardian family, the dog, and us, and it gives everyone peace of mind knowing our dogs are in the best possible situation they could be in.
Our guardian homes must meet the following requirements:
We will decide to whom our dogs are bred and when they are bred.
Female Dogs: The female dog will come to us for breeding (between 3-14 days) and return to the guardian home for the duration of her pregnancy (about 63 days). She will return to us within a week of her due date and remain with us while she whelps her puppies (8-10 weeks). When her puppies are weaned and join their forever families, she will return to her guardian family until she is ready to be bred again.
Male Dogs: The male dog will come to us for breeding (between 3-14 days) and return to his forever family until he is needed for a future breeding.
Guardian homes are responsible for:
Our guardian home families all sign legally-binding contracts agreeing to the terms described on this page. Before being matched with a dog, all potential guardian homes may be required to participate in a home visit, undergo a background check, or meet us at a point half-way between our homes.
