We will place a puppy/dog with an approved family and the puppy/dog will live with the guardian family but we will retain breeding rights on him/her. As a guardian family, you will be responsible for maintaining the health of the dog and providing a loving home. When the dog reaches breeding age, any health testing for breeding will be done at the expense of the breeder. If the breeder finds the dog is not up to the proper breeding standards, full ownership will be signed over to the guardian family and they will be required to have him or her spayed/neutered. If the said dog is used for breeding, once retired, he/she will be spayed/neutered at the expense of the breeder and full ownership will be given to the guardian home at that time. To qualify as a guardian home for a male, you must live within a one-hour drive from Hastings, MI and have the dog available when needed for breeding. For a female, you may live further than one-hour away but must be willing to travel to bring the dog to us when needed.
If this sounds like a program that would work for you family please contact me to see if we have a puppy/dog that would fit your family.
Contact me if you are interested in becoming a Guardian Home for one of our babies.
