Adult dogs are often ideal for mature adults who dont have the energy or desire needed to train a puppy.
We have several adults; French Bulldog, English bulldog, Westies, and Cavaliers, who will be available in late 2020! 2 Pugs will retire in 2021.
Please email if interested in one of our future adult dogs. 2 other adults are on the rescue page. Some were in very dire need when they came here. The 2 previously rescued dogs need a real home desperately. Tide and Izzy.
See French Bulldog parent page for more information and photos on the retiring adult Frenchies pictured and listed here.
None of them have had any health issues. They are 2 to 5 years old $1200. to $2000. to adopt. They will all be spayed or neutered, current on vaccinations and microchipped prior to adoption. Merlin Jr (available this summer/fall) has been used as stud dog and may need to wear a belly band to prevent making until hormones wear off. They also much prefer female dogs and would be best without a male dog in the house. Both are higher energy and very fit. They can be very around strangers at first. When they grew up when we were building a house for my mom and aunt they did not get the usual socializing we do with the dogs.
Merlin Jr is a chunk and we love him, but we have several of his offspring so we are considering retiring him. We have not made the final decision. He also has OFA hips, patellas, heart and eyes. Very hard to get in a Frenchie! All the others have OFA eyes and heart and some also hips and/ or patellas, or are not tested yet.
I retire all our mom dogs after several years of breeding.
It works great for us, for our retired moms, and their new families. They are healthy, housebroken (and/or crate trained), crate trained, and come when called already. They all walk on a leash and stand great for grooming.
They will take some adjusting into a new home but they are so easy many families keep in touch for a long time letting me know what a great Westie they are and how happy they are to have one of mine. They are wonderful for the person or family who wants a companion, without all the time and energy a puppy requires.
Some have not been loose in the house very much but they never potty in a crate, and most automatically go to the door when they need out.
If you are looking for an adult who has had a kind and warm family life a retired adult would be perfect for you. Contact us for current information to find out when a retired adult dog will be available. I don't keep this page updated as often as needed since I have a list of families waiting for an adult. Please feel free to email for current info.
Our retired moms are usually 6 years old and $650. (Except Frenchies which vary in cost.) They will be spayed, teeth cleaned if needed, microchipped, and current on vaccinations. Please email if you would like to be on the list for an update when an adult becomes available.
We occasionally have older puppies available. They are crate trained, and have the benefit of being able to wait longer to potty for those families who work, or are gone longer then a young puppy can wait. They also learn and remember quickly, since they are a little more mature. They easily move right into their new family the way a young puppy will. Please check on the breeds available puppies page for them.

We have retired Westie moms who will be available in summer 2021.

We have 1 who will retire summer 2021.
We only breed the French Bulldogs a few times if they need c-sections. Unlike dogs having puppies naturally they should only have about 3 to 4 c-sections before being spayed. Needing a c-section is one reason the cost of puppies from these breeds cost so much more. They take just as long to mature yet they get retired much younger, with more vet bills. Amazingly they don't act much different after having a c-section compared to having puppies naturally.
6 months to 4 year old girls. We kept sisters back for picking which of the 2 is a bit better quality for breeding. We seriously prefer to improve the breed and not just breed any because we like them but have health testing one and then go from there. We are now deciding which sister to keep, and which to adopt out. They are $1400 to $2000. and will be spayed already, or on contract to be spayed within 30 days.

Uncle Al's Pugs
He only has a few adult female Pugs, none are retiring at this time. He does have a few younger Pugs. His first retiree, Sugar he kept. She is is favorite.
We hope to have some of them in foster to adopt programs, please contact us if interested! (See Program Below.)
We will have more adult French Bulldogs available summer/winter 2020/2021
We are trying to decide which ones, we love them all!
All super happy dogs. Please email if interested.
Price varies if they are going to be pets we will neuter and they are available at half the price as with full AKC.
For any of our adults if they are not already we will spay/neuter any adopted for pets before adoption. Also all crate trained, walk on a leash and they do not potty in the large kennel inside, although some may not have been loose 24/7 in the house as we usually crate our dogs at night and when we are not watching them.
We are going to have more available soon as we will have our annual health clinic in April 2020. We keep a lot of sister pairs to determine who is the better one who passes health testing better to improve the breed. Well they all passed cardiac and eye exams! So many Frenchies have so many health problems because people breed anything and do not do heart testing and don't care if the nares are so small the dog cant breath. Health and happiness of our puppies is top priority. Every dog should be born able to breath with ease, not bred to what looks the most cute, because it is so far deformed it cant hardly breath and needs surgery, or cant do stairs due to back problems. All our dogs are tested for DM and we avoid any pairs who may have puppies who are DM positive. Many breeders do no testing at all!
Foster to Adopt Program.
We offer a contract to approved homes who are interested in having one of our female puppies / dogs.
The family must live close enough to us that transporting her here a few times a year would not be a problem.
Basically the dog will be owned by us, but live with a family. She would be here anytime she is in season (about once, or twice a year), for health testing once a year, and if pregnant to deliver and raise the puppies until 8 to 9 weeks of age. When she is retired she will be spayed and stay in her adopted home as a pet. Ownership will be transferred to her family at that time.
We have several families with dogs in the program now. Its a great way to be involved with the joy of puppies without any of the expense, stress of the puppies, or finding terrific homes for the pups. Plus we will babysit her when families go on vacations if needed and then she is in a familiar environment and lives with us, even sleeping with us if that is what she is use to.
