ADOPTION PROCESS

chocolate labrador adoption
fox red lab puppy for sale

Adopting one of our Labrador puppies begins with placing your name on our puppy master waiting list.  We require a completed wait list form, questionnaire and $100 non-refundable deposit.  The non-refundable deposit does apply to the price of the puppy. When all 3 requirements are received, your name will be added to our master list in date order.  The master waiting list establishes pick order and holds a puppy until individual selections can be made during the puppy's sixth week of age.  To be added to our master list, please utilize this Waiting List Form or contact us directly. 


We must all understand that with animals, sometimes we see delayed cycles, females who come in early, have small litters and other factors that are not what we would have expected.  Once we confirm a pregnancy we initiate a Dam litter list, send out emails of interest to clients that have been pulled from our master list by date added and based on preferences like Dam, Sire, Dam/Sire pairing, color and/or gender of the puppy.  A client can confirm interest or decline.  If declined - you can stay on our master waiting list for a future litter. 


Once a litter reaches six weeks of age, each puppy is evaluated/observed on a daily basis after 2 weeks of age.  We keep notes on all the puppies and will share them with you to help assist with the selection process.  We assist  you in making puppy selections based on your preference for color and gender.  We have spent years with our parent dogs and countless hours with these puppies.  There is no "first pick" puppy that is best for all families.  Puppies will stay with the litter until they reach eight weeks of age and have been given a clean bill of health from a veterinarian.   


We ask that each prospective owner read through our list of Adoption Considerations before deciding to bring a puppy into their lives.  Information about how we raise puppies can be found on the Our Setup page and the How Your Puppy is Raised page. We are located in Olympia, Washington.  


Photographs and videos of each litter are shared every two weeks on our Facebook page and the current litters page.  Photos of our adult dogs can be found in the gallery as well as footage on the videos page.   Photos of past litters are available for viewing as well.   Information on pricing can be found on the pricing page.


Our puppies go home with the following: - Basic information and guidance packet-AKC Limited registration packet, Health certificate from a licensed veterinarian, 4 de-wormings and first vaccination, microchip, dewclaws removed, health records and two year health guarantee, sales contract, puppy food starter pack, a blanket (rubbed on litter mates), collar, toothbrush, toothpaste, brush, poop bag holder w/roll of bags and a few toys (ball, stuffie, etc..).     


We are always available for any questions that may arise after taking your puppy home. We provide breeder support for life and hope to be updated periodically on your puppy's progress.
