Mocha x Titan 9 puppies Born
One puppy left! Sired by a nice tri male, Titan. Titan is a friendly solid temperament boy. Mocha is a goofy, fun, medium energy girl. She gets along well with other dogs and loves humans as well. Pretty bomb proof. Lovely temperament on both these parents.
Tequila is the quietest of the litter, not shy, but just a low energy nice puppy. Affectionate and curious, but could use some confidence building. She will excel in a home with another dog to learn from or in a home where she is center of attention and will get lots of socialization and positive experiences. She is ready to go home March 24th.

On Feb 10th, Velvet whelped 7 healthy gorgeous puppies with a very special boy. Last year Gus was bred to Milah and unfortunately we lost the entire litter due to a bacterial infection. I am beyond thrilled at being given the rare chance to use this boy again. Gus has an amazing temperament and this pairing is a breeding of my dreams. Gus is from Arkley's, owned by Rebecca Dayboll. Puppies due February 11th. 2023. I will be looking for a co own family for a puppy from this litter. The waiting list is likely full for Velvet litter. Puppies will be listed as Pending or On Hold until families on our waiting list (and myself) make our picks. Once that is done, any puppies still available will be listed as such.

Chloe x Dante
March 20, 2023
Chloe has a more laid back personality. Friendly and forgiving. Tolerates her younger female dog companion well who likes to lay on top of her. Chloe would make a great therapy dog. Dante is gentle and sweet. These two temperament combined is what I am striving for and so excited to see them grow. Chloe's waiting list is currently full, but I will update after pups are older and I've gone through the waiting list to see who may be going to who. I will also do evaluations around 7 weeks, and at that time there may be some available.

Shipping: Yes, I do ship puppies. I prefer using WestJet for domestic (Canada), or I can also ship using a reputable ground Pet Transport service which takes a bit longer. (I will consider International shipping) All shipping costs, crate, health clearances, brokerage fees, etc. are the responsibility of the buyers.
Want to be a part of a program that helps provide families with a happy healthy pet companion?
What is a Guardian home or Co-own home or Partner family....?
A male puppy would be your dog. I would simply "borrow" him for a few hours, perhaps a few days to do stud service. A co own agreement usually last about 4 years.
A female puppy would be your pet, your companion, forever. She would live with you and be your dog. When she was old enough, and after she cleared all her health testing, she may be bred. She would continue to live with your during her pregnancy. But she would deliver and raise her puppies with me, under my experienced care. Once her puppies were weaned, she would come back to you.
My puppies are raised by moms that live as pets in homes loved by their owners, they don`t live in cages, crates or cramped kennels just waiting to be bred. Without co own homes I could not, would not be able to raise wonderful, beautiful healthy dogs for families. On occasion, if the co owner is able, works from home or is semi retired, I may allow and assist the co owner to do part of the puppy raising.
FAQ....how many litters...how long is she away from home...is there a discount for a second puppy...do I need to do anything special having a breeding dog...etc.
I can answer all these questions and more. Also, I can give you references of current and past co owners.
The advantage to co owning...is, free health testing, you get the pick of the litter, you skip the long waiting list, you may pay less than half the price for the best puppy of the litter, or you may get incentives for puppies or stud services. You also get bragging rights if I decide to show your dog.
If you are interested in become a Partner home (co own home), and would like more information, please email me at followmemas@gmail. com or find me on Facebook as Lisa T Hartjes. You can also join my Facebook Group Follow Me Canine Companions. Keep in mind I prefer my co own homes to be no further than 2 hrs away. I am moving to Arden in about 2 years so keep that in mind. I would welcome a partner family in the Kingston Frontenac area.
The waiting list...
I often get asked how long my waiting list is and how does it work?
Well, its quite complicated, and though there may several people on my list...not all are getting puppies from the next litter and not all those people are pet buyers, some are breeders, some are potential co owners for pups that I will keep in my breeding program. Some have been on my list for over a year waiting for just the right puppy for them, others never go on the list but inquire about a puppy I have just made available, and get to take home right away. How is it possible that there could be a puppy suddenly available now, if there is a waiting list that has so many people on it? This is why...
When I have a litter, one or sometimes two of those puppies will be placed in co own homes and eventually be a part of my breeding program. I don't know which puppies those will be until they are closer to 8 weeks old! So therefore, almost all puppies in a litter are on hold for my program until I deem them pet quality, or I've not selected them to be part of the selection I"m looking at. Perhaps I am only considering keeping a female, and in that case I would make all the males available to deposit holders. Also...I may have a few breeders on my list, and some will want a certain gender or color, but they will want a show/breed quality puppy which will require waiting until about 7.5 weeks old when we do our official evaluations. So...at that time...some of the puppies will not make the cut and I will then go to the next person on my deposit holders list, as long as they are a match for temperament and preferences and make the puppy available to them. If no one on my list matches temperament or preferences...the puppy goes up as available. So while my list may be long at times, it is not impossible to get a puppy from the next litter. I can tell you, that merles are more sought after then tri colored so often tri coloured are available more often than merles, or at least quicker than merles. So if you get on the waiting list for a tri, you'll likely get one sooner than someone on the list for a merle. Average wait time on the waiting list once you have placed your non refundable deposit/waiting list fee is about 6 months.
