MALE VS FEMALE
There is a preconceived notion that females are better pets and easier to house train than males. Although many people like the little females simply because that is all they have ever owned, males most often make better family pets. A male has a tendency to be less moody than a female and is just as sweet. It is a good idea to get them neutered at an early age. We recommend before 5 months of age. If a male is neutered early, they don’t have the tendency to mark their territory as so many people are afraid of them doing in their homes. We have many happy owners of male puppies that have never had any problems with them in any way. They make wonderful family pets and companions. Neutering your puppy will protect his health, help him to live longer and be a better pet, along with improving his house manners. Many people believe that females do not display alpha behaviors like “marking” and/or “humping,” that they are more docile and attentive than the males, and that females do not participate in fighting over dominance. This is so UNTRUE! Our males are very calm and love attention just like our females. They, just like females, will make every step you make and at the end of the day will snuggle up beside you and watch TV and never move a muscle. They make wonderful pets. Please keep an open mind when deciding on a puppy that is right for you. Make your decision based on size, health, and most importantly temperament; not just the sex of the puppy. And mostly on the one that grabs your heart!!!

"Won't you buy me? Not because I will be euthanized, abandoned, abused or given up because I wasn't important enough. Buy me because the wonderful person taking this photo brought me into this world after much thought and careful planning, sat up with me, night after night, to make sure I was warm, fed, and strong.
She played with me, introduced me to countless experiences, people and places. She sang to me, held me, kissed my face and my baby paws. She cried when my baby sister didn't make it in the first days of our lives.
She sat, scowl on her face, interviewing potential buyers, some of which didn't measure up. She will be there for me, for the rest of my life. She has guaranteed my health, and knows the dogs behind me, very well. She knows what those dogs have the potential to produce, both good and bad, and she willingly shares that with anyone who asks. She will cry when I go home with that carefully screened family, and she will think of me often.
Isn't that worth a minimal investment, something to cover her time and the money she spent to bring me into the world, and care for me like none other? A little something to enable her to continue her exceptional care of my parents, and the other adults she keeps as her own? A little token to keep her going, so she can continue to support the breed she loves, with all the care and planning with which she used to bring me into the world? There is no profit for her, though she works for the love of her breed. She is worth your investment...believe me, I know this for sure. Look at how clean I am, how I smile. Look at my bright and healthy eyes, my clean and tidy surroundings. Look at how happy I am, how much I love people, and love to play with my toys...all because of her.
When I leave her, I will hope and pray that my new family has the potential to care for me with the same kind of love and devotion with which she has cared for me over the last 8 weeks. I'm scared, but I trust her. She is a responsible, careful and loving breeder. There are many others like her. She carries a heavy burden, but she carries it because she loves me, and she's devoted to others like me."
There is 1 dapple male available from this litter. This pup is a true miniature. Joey weighs 6.6 lbs. and is very petite, Nick weighs 9 lbs. The pup has a very nice pedigree and will have a great disposition. He currently has dapples and shading on him now, however as he grows, the dapples will fade and the cream will get lighter and lighter. You can see in the photo how light Harley has become. He may end up with a little black shading around the ears and tail but he will be predominantly light.
I require a $200 deposit to hold him and he won't leave here until he is 8 weeks or older and has his first vaccines and appropriate wormings. I do not ship, so if you live a great distance you will have to come here and pick him up. I can drive part way to meet you. You can call or e-mail and I will be happy to discuss the adoption of this beautiful pup.

JUST A DOG
From time to time, people tell me, "lighten up, it's just a dog,"
or, "that's a lot of money for just a dog."
They don't understand the distance traveled, the time spent, or the costs involved for "just a dog."
Some of my proudest moments have come about with "just a dog."
Many hours have passed and my only company was "just a dog,"
but I did not once feel slighted.
Some of my saddest moments have been brought about by "just a dog,"
and in those days of darkness, the gentle touch of "just a dog" gave me comfort and reason to overcome the day.
If you, too, think it's "just a dog," then you will probably understand
phrases like "just a friend," "just a sunrise," or "just a promise."
"Just a dog" brings into my life the very essence of friendship, trust,
and pure unbridled joy.
"Just a dog" brings out the compassion and patience that make me a better person.
Because of "just a dog", I will rise early, take long walks and look longingly to the future.
So for me and folks like me, it's not "just a dog" but an embodiment of all the hopes and dreams of the future,
the fond memories of the past, and the pure joy of the moment.
"Just a dog" brings out what's good in me and diverts my thoughts away
from myself and the worries of the day.
I hope that someday they can understand that it's not "just a dog",
but the thing that gives me humanity and keeps me from being
"just a man or woman."
So the next time you hear the phrase "just a dog"
because they "just don't understand."
