Once in a while, we do offer up a retired dog or two for adoption, or sometimes a young dog just didn't meet our standards for breeding--we only want the best of the best to be bred. Sometimes we have dogs returned to us because the owner's situation changed, or they can no longer care for the dog. (We will ALWAYS take our babies back, and NEVER want any of our dogs to end up in a shelter!) The dogs raised here have usually been raised as outside dogs, but would love to transition to being inside with a new family. They are good with older children, but are not used to a lot of excitement and roughhousing. They would be excellent running buddies, and have years of love to give, without going through the puppy stage.  They are always up-to-date on vaccinations and heart worm medication, and used to being crated inside at night, but are not fully house-trained. These dogs are very special, and we want only the best life-long home for them to enjoy. They are only available because we have other retired dogs now (Benelli, Sophie, Daniel), and we would love for these to have more individual attention. AKC papers are not included when we adopt one of these out, but if you are planning on some kind of show or event that you need those, please let us know.     

Elijah, charcoal boy, born 4/2016, is retired from making beautiful babies, and has been neutered. Eli is a fantastic running buddy, and has had a lot of hunt training but would need a refresher. He's e-collar trained. He's OFA good hips, so even though he's middle-aged, there's no reason he shouldn't be able to provide many more happy and activeyears. He gets along with other dogs, but doesn't like to share food, so will either need to be separated at meal time, or be in a home with no other dogs. I will be picky about his new home, and I don't mind him living out his retirement hereat home, but would love for him to have more personal attention. He is not house-trained, but would love to be inside as someone's best buddy. He does do excellent in the crate. Eli's adoption fee is $400.
