Stella & Westley's Litter Planned for Spring
Stella & Westley have successfully honeymooned & are expecting puppies due April 18th-22nd! We will not be able to confirm pregnancy until about March 19th when an ultrasound can be done but we are thrilled to have a due date now & be able to plan for the arrival of these sweet pups.
Currently the list for this litter is full but there may be openings at birth if more than 8 puppies are born.
The pups will all be traditional tri color with medium/long soft coats. Stella is 90 & Westley is 85: I expect girls to be approximately 80-90 lbs & 85 - 95 lbs for boys. These puppies will be excellent family dogs as well as therapy & service dog candidates.

Stella's litter list is currently full, if more than 8 puppies are born I will update the list with the available spots. If the puppies are born & there are not enough puppies to provide you a puppy your reservation can be fully refunded or you may transfer it too my next expected litter.
My puppies are raised using a socialization program Puppy Culture & ENS. This program uses positive training to teach pups that new experiences are fun & safe not something to fear or be anxious about. The puppies will work on: potty training, crate training, going on car rides, visiting the vet, being groomed & having their nails trimmed. I have the puppies play with kids of all ages, adults, other gentle adult dogs of various sizes & our cat.
Puppy Health Care
The pups will be on a health care schedule supervised by my vet. Their first de-worming's are at 2, 4, 6 & 8 weeks & they receive their first Parvo/Distemper vaccination at 5 weeks & second vaccination at 7-8 weeks. Each pup has a microchip implanted & I pre-pay lifetime registration. They all have individual thorough vet checks before going home & you will receive a written exam report from the vet.
MEET THE PARENTS BELOW
Stella is a Berner girl with a kind & loving personality. She is 90 lbs & has great conformation, a beautiful silky coat & expressive brown eyes. This beautiful girl is quite the love bug. Her guardians are a family with kiddos that she adores & is very bonded too. Stella's favorite move is to walk halfway between your legs so she can get her butt scratched. She has a fun goofy personality & is very friendly & outgoing with everyone she meets. She enjoys getting loved on by her family who give her lots of scratches & belly rubs. Often she contentedly lays on the floor while the kids play card games on her back.

Westley is a very laid-back boy especially for his age.

His favorite treat is string cheese which he very delicately nibbles from my hand Westley is 85 lb. & his health clearances are:

DM SOD1A - Carries one copy out of two.*Degenerative myelopathy is inherited in an Autosomal Recessive manner in dogs meaning that they must receive two copies of the mutated gene (a copy from each parent) to develop the disease.
