Prices  * Guarantees  *  Shipping
​PRICE:
PRICE IS DETERMINED BY THE COSTS ASSOCIATED WITH a) purchasing initial breeding animals  b) cost of annual health testing that breed  c) cost of raising the litter.  Some breeds are more expensive to breed than others, some breeds have small litters. 

 I STRIVE TO KEEP MY PRICES LOW TO ENCOURAGE you to buy health tested, well bred pups, not backyard bred animals but not so low as to attract those horrible people who buy inexpensive dogs than "flip" them for more money.

Cairn Terriers - full AKC reg:
$1500

Dobermans - full AKC reg:
$2200

Boston Bulls - full AKC reg:
$1600



I prefer to place my pups locally, however I will ship pups within the United States.  Pups sold to other countries on a case by case basis. No dogs sold to Asian or muslim countries

Shipping will be from Portland, Oregon (PDX) and I prefer non stop flights, though I understand sometimes one stop will be required. Buyer will be charged for the cost of shipping and the crate I will pay for the health certificate. 
What Does It Cost To Produce A Good Pup?

AND WHY ARE MY PUPS LESS EXPENSIVE THAN MOST KENNELS THAT DONT EVEN BOTHER TO HEALTH TEST?

Because I am not a commercial kennel. I breed for myself and sell the surplus pups because I feel very strongly that the public deserves well bred, sound, health tested animals at a fair price. This is my hobby, and I don't feel a hobby has to "make money". I want to "give back" to dogs, because they have been such an important part of my life. If I can offer healthy purebred pups to those who want them I feel I am doing my part.

 The price of a pup does not come close to paying the costs that are "behind the scene" so to speak.  Adult breeding dogs must be heath tested annually and this can run into the thousands of dollars.  Providing safe and comfortable housing, fencing as well as above average dog food runs into the thousands of dollars each year.  Done well, dog breeding is an expensive hobby! Add to that a pup I bought might grow up to not be able to pass its health certifications - now I am out the cost of that pup, its shipping, all its care and feeding PLUS the cost of buying a new prospect, paying shipping veterinarian costs, etc. 

Stud fees are generally about $1500 to $2000 for live breedings, much, much more when frozen semen is used.  Then there is the cost of shipping the bitch to the stud, which runs several hundred dollars. Getting working titles on the dogs costs money! And on it goes.  So the choice is yours - support a breeder who does right by the dogs, or one who charges AS IF they do!

I encourage you to compare what I offer for the protection of the pup as well as for your piece of mind with ANY other kennel. Doing everything possible to produce healthy pups and protect them for life is more important than money in the pocket. 

NOTE: On occasion I have to use a stud dog not owned by me. In this case the dog may not have all the health testing I have on my dogs. Please ask me about this if you have any questions!
​A WARNING!

Here are  "Red Flags" you should watch for when dealing with breeders.

First: those who claim they "do not need to health test" because their dogs are "healthy". The fact is, many serious diseases can ONLY be determined by DNA  or x-ray tests. And, some don't appear until the dog is older. There are as many excuses for why a breeder won't spend money on health testing their dogs as there are "backyard breeders". 

Health testing is the number one difference between reputable breeders and those in it just for cash.

Second, beware kennels which will not ship their pups...  New government regulations prohibit "commercial kennels" (like puppy mills) from shipping pups. This is a giant warning sign folks!
