~1st Time Puppy Owner.

 If you are a first time puppy owner please be aware of "normal" puppy behaviors such as:chewing, nipping, jumping, running, barking, and periods of high energy as these should never be considered a fault. With maturity of the dog, proper training, patience and commitment from you these undesirable behaviors will soon pass and you will have your perfect family companion! 


~Which would make a better house pet, male or a female?

       I have no preference, both are equally intelligent, when a pup is spayed or neutered at a early age they are nearly identical in personality and traits. Based on my personal experience I find females to be more independent and males tend to be very affectionate. The idea that males or females make a better pet is a myth, it all depends on how you raise them. 


~If I already have another dog, what is the best gender to get?

If they are both fixed and you are getting a puppy, their should be no problem with either gender. Best bet is to make sure your dog that you already have is OK with other dogs before bringing home a new one. 


~NO-OBLIGATION waiting list? 

****BEFORE PUPS ARE BORN****

You must Submit Puppy Application if you wish to be placed on waiting list for a call back when pups are on the way.  I will message you within 48 hours to let you know I’ve received and approved your application. Be sure to follow us on Facebook for faster updates on litters.

Pick of pup will go in order of GENDER WAITING LIST on pick up day. 

 If the pup of your choice/gender is born/available, you have the option to remain in your current spot on the list until your pup is born, or if the other gender is available you are more then welcome to that pup.. 

I will take picture/videos weekly. Watch us grow on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/WestieLifeWesties



~Can we visit our new family member after birth? 

NO SORRY. My reasons why, mainly safety reasons. 

*Newborn pups immune systems are very immature, pups are susceptible to viruses and bacteria, disease (parvovirus, distemper, etc that can be brought in without knowing, the result of which is the death of litter. 

*A new mother is emotionally, Mom’s state of mind can changes rapidly. Panicked Moms hurt pups, if she feels threatened and moves quickly, Moms have unintentionally stepped on or crushed a pup. 

** We ARE NOT a kennel. Our pups are raised in our home underfoot with my family, If we allowed visits we would have a petting zoo going on everyday. (Safety reasons for my human family as well) I know nothing about you other then the information you have give me, I don’t know your real intentions, sad to say but that’s the world we live in. Tons of stories where people will come a look at pups and decide they don’t want one, later they come back a steal whole litter and momma.** I know what the INTERNET BLOGGERS says about breeders who do not allow you into their home, to TURN & RUN, trust me I get it, and I totally understand if you RUN.  

*I make it fun by posted ALMOST daily pictures/videos/Facebook LIVE VIDEOS. Puppy pictures will always be current. PLEASE BE PATIENT, I sometimes have to take 100 pictures to get one our two great ones. I post UPDATE picture/videos, LIVE Video to our FACEBOOK PAGE, NOT website.
