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, and a Pug who will be available in 2022! (See below)
Please email if interested in one of our future adult dogs. The rescue page needs updating. All our rescued dogs have found great homes!! We do have rescued cats and kittens who need homes! Some were in very dire need when they came here.
All our frenchie retired adults have been adopted at the time of this update. 10-2-22
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), and come when called. 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 dog 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 to double check availability after reading about each dog on this website. Sometimes this page isn't updated as often as needed since I have a list of families waiting for an adult that may have not responded yet. Please feel free to email for current info.
Our retired Westie, Cavalier or Pug moms are usually 6 years old and $650. (Retired Frenchies vary in cost and age, from $800. to $2400. from 1 to 6 years old)
All adults will be spayed, teeth cleaned (only if it can be done at the same time of the spay,) microchipped, and current on vaccinations. Please email if you would like to be on the list for an update when an adult becomes available after reading information.
We rarely have older puppies available unless I was unable to email due to being too busy, or had technology problems. See the puppy pages if any are available.
(See Program below on "foster to adopt" if you really want a puppy or older dog and can not find one, yet are willing to give a mom a great home and be in the program.)
We may have a retired Westie mom who will be available late winter 2023.
(See Program below on "foster to adopt.")
May have one after April 2023
We only breed the French Bulldogs a few times if they need c-sections. Unlike dogs having puppies naturally they should only have about 4 c-sections before being spayed. (The vet lets us know at the time of the c-section if they believe they need to be spayed, or are fine to have another litter.) 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 many more vet bills. Amazingly they don't act much different after having a c-section compared to having puppies naturally.

Uncle Al's Pugs
He only has a few adult female Pugs. He does have a few younger Pugs. His first retiree, Sugar he kept. She is is favorite. And now one of her daughter Sally, he has decided she will stay with him too.
It will probably be 2023/2024 before any will be retired and available.
Foster to adopt
We hope to have some of our breeding quality dogs in foster to adopt programs, please contact us if interested! (See Program at Bottom of page)
Retired parents price varies from $650. to $1800. plus tax, depending on their age and breed. All are AKC. Older puppies and young adults are the same or if well trained a bit more than the puppy price.
For any of our adults if they are not already done we will usually spay/neuter any adopted for pets before adoption. Also all are 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 will have our annual health clinic April 2023. If anyone does not pass they will be retired after appropriate spay/neuter procedure is completed, last time everyone tested with the cardiac and optomogoligist (OFA certified) passed making it hard to know who to let go! 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 deformed it cant hardly breath and needs surgery, or cant do stairs due to back, leg and hip problems. Most all our dogs are tested for DM and we do our best to avoid any pairs who may have puppies who are DM positive, although with frenchies positive does not mean a problem, just at possible risk.
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 (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 work 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 when she does have her puppies.
