Puppy Information

Puppies checking out the wading pool Puppy love

We strive to breed conformationally correct and handsome dogs that are lovable and loyal companions and excel in all the working fields. We have only one (or very rarely two) litters a year, so that we can raise the pups inside and give them all the attention and care that will give them the best start for their future careers. Our puppies are used in hunting, hunt testing, search and rescue, rally, agility, obedience, therapy, and police work. They are all primarily family pets!

We use only the best, proven working bloodlines. All animals used in our program have full information on health clearance status on eyes, heart, hips, and elbows, and come from lines that have good longevity. We sell our puppies with a health guarantee against certain inherited health problems. We do screen prospective puppy buyers but prefer to do this through personal email/telephone contacts rather than a fixed questionnaire. We also ask that all puppy buyers keep in touch and update us regularly on their puppy's/dog's progress and well-being throughout the dog's life.

Our Next Litter

Panda has been bred for her third and final litter and is due to whelp o/a 1/24/18. We bred her back to AFC HRCH Topbrass Hawks Red Wing MH CCA ("Red"), who sired Panda's excellent 2015 litter, and we plan to keep a female puppy so that we will have two half sisters as possible future breeders. At the present time, we have taken all the deposits that we are planning to take for this litter. Sometimes a puppy or two may become available if the sex mix of the litter does not meet the sex preferences of the deposit holders and they elect not to switch, or if the litter is larger than average. If you are potentially interested in a puppy, we urge you to contact us promptly. Our next litter will not be until 2020, after Zoey has a chance to grow up, prove herself in competition, and pass her clearances. For more information on future litters, it is best to be placed on our 'puppy notification list'. To get on this list, drop us an email at:, or give us a call at 865-376-3453. Working/ competition homes are preferred, but the quality of the home is most important and we are happy to place puppies in active pet homes.

You can see our pattern sale contract here; the one we actually use for any particular litter may have small modifications.
