Announcing Heilig and Mr. Darcy’s litter born March 23rd, 2019. There were seven puppies born. Three remain that are looking for their forever homes. The puppies are nicknamed after the movie characters from the Fantastical Beast. All puppies are thriving. The pictures below are of the puppies at 4 weeks.
Tina loves to be held and snuggled. She watches us and thinks things through. She picks her opportunities to engage with her brothers that are best for her. She is easy to train and will willingly learn whatever she is taught. She will be excellent as a companion or as a farmer helper.
Jake is engaging, inquisitive and enjoys staying with us. He loves to run and play. He is fair to his siblings and a smart puppy. He is a thinker and puzzle solver. Canine games, sports or farm chores would be excellent activities for Jake. He will be an outstanding companion for a loving family.
Credence is a teddy bear. He is calm, relaxed and enjoys playing with people and siblings. He has courage and patience. He is lovable and makes good eye contact. He could fit well in town or on a farm. He would do well with small children, seniors or someone looking for an engaging companion.

Our puppies are born in hour home where we can handle them all day long. We move the litter to our attached garage so daily romps are easy and they share it with a few baby goats too. That is pretty entertaining for them and good early training with livestock---just licking milk off faces and hearing/seeing how goats are. We have garage cats too, that help the puppies become familiar with critters. These two are ready to go to their new families where they will be happy for all their lives. They have so much to offer an individual or family. They could easily be on a farm or hobby farm, or in suburbia if given play time and training and a job to do.
