Puppy Buyer Etiquette
The Parade of Portugal and UKC Premier is over now but was wonderful!
A Portuguese Water Dog, Hi Sea’s Dr Romeo Macduff won BISS. Congrats to his owner Louise Glenda Newton on this wonderful win, under a Portuguese Judge Maria Amelia Taborda.
Our own McCoy was Best of Breed at PoP. We are very proud of her continued success and maturity.
During the Premier, an eye clinic was going on. Supporting health clinics is a sure way to see more in the future so we had McCoys eyes tested., and we are happy to report she has normal eyes and will soon be on OFA with her results.
We hope to have puppies in August. This litter is booked, but are also planning a fall breeding of either Quinta x Dourado or Unalakleet x Dourado.
There is also going to be a breeding in Virginia in August. I am happy to give you more details on this, both parents have had the required health tests done.
As the weather warms up so do our plans for the next TE litter. We feel this litter is currently booked, however, depending on how many she thinks is enough…this litter *may* have a spot open. The mothers love to prove me wrong, happily!
Contact us for more information!
*In June we will be in Kalamazoo for the Parade of Portugal. Our Top Ten girl McCoy will be there, but since she is currently pretty coatless, she may just supervise. We are doing the ‘coat dance’ daily in hopes she will sprout like a Chia Pet.
If you want to meet not only the Estrela, but other Portuguese breeds, head on overy to Kalamazoo for the show. We have a wonderful example of many native Portuguese breeds each year. see paradeofporutugal.com for more information.
*One of our grown puppies has just finished her health testing! The owner is hoping to breed her in August. If you would like information on the Penny litter, please contact us.
As we get back to puppy free life, with the Navy kids gone to their homes now, anticipation is building over our next litter! And we could not be more excited about this litter. Una is our own home grown girl! Our first to have puppies. She will be matched very nicely with Akaroa’s Dourado.
We picked up this handsome man on Feb 3rd. He will be staying with us until Una decides to come into season.
We are not sure exactly when this will be as she threw a wrench in the plans with a silent heat (or a psuedo) heat in November. So we will patiently wait for her to be ready.
We are proud of their health scores, please check out Una’s page and album. Dourado’s page, and album.
We do not breed untested dogs.
There are many bookings on this litter already, Contact us for more information.
