Puppy Health

Our dogs are carefully chosen to be as free from genetic faults as possible.  They are screened for hip displasia and eye problems.  All the puppies are evaluated by a veterinarian, have had their tails docked and dewclaws removed.  They have been microchipped and vaccinated.


Hip Displasia

Our dogs are x-rayed and checked by PennHIP or OFA.  PennHIP is a scientific method to evaluate a dog for it’s susceptibility to develop Hip Dysplasia.  Research has shown that the degree of looseness of the hip ball in the hip socket when the dog’s muscles are completely relaxed is an important factor in determining susceptibility of development of degenerative joint disease (osteoarthritis) later in life.



All of our puppies are microchipped for identification when they are vaccinated.

Why Microchip my Pet?

Microchips provide a permanent, unremovable means of animal identification that will not fade or be lost over time as can occur with a tattoo or ID tag. Owner information can be accessed immediately through the recovery database associated with the microchip. This ensures the quick and accurate identification of a lost pet, avoiding the delays and sometimes misinterpretations found with other forms of pet ID. It is also a system that knows no geographical boundary and is applicable throughout North America, making it the best insurance you can provide your pet in the event it becomes lost.
How Does the System Work?
When a lost animal appears in a shelter, humane society, or veterinary clinic, it will be scanned for a microchip. If one is present, a specific alpha-numeric code will be displayed. With that code number in hand, a call will be made to the recovery database using the 800 toll free number. That code number can be traced to the pet owner listed in the database files, 24 hours a day 7 days a week.





CANADACHIP is a national pet rescue program offered by The Canadian Kennel Club. The program consists of 2 components:


  • the first is a 24 hour recovery hotline which is linked to a national database of dog/owner information.

the second is the availability of microchips and scanners through The Canadian Kennel Club.



At six weeks, the puppies are rechecked by a  veterinarian and vaccinated with "4 Way Vaccine" against Parvo, Distemper and Adenovirus.
