We a very small but successful show and performance home that only has a litter when we want to add to our Angels. Our puppies are fed Purina Pro Plan Puppy Food, socialized, interacted with daily, groomed, and most of all part of our family. They are not brought up in kennel environment with limited human interaction and left outside in a run. Our Angels enjoy going to the Beach in St. Augustine, Swimming in our Lakes, and being part of our lives daily.
By the time our puppies leave, they will have traveled in a vehicle, gone on field trips, walked on a leash, held daily, watched TV, introduced to different sounds, petted, accept a cookie, stacked on a grooming table, introduced to sit, down, come, tunnel, wobble board, loved and so much more. We don't wean our puppies at four weeks but when they are ready depending on the mother and the pups..sometimes this can be as long as 6-8 weeks as we feel it is important for the mother to interact with them. After puppies are weaned we let the mother play with her pups again so they can continue to learn pack order. We do not let our puppies go until 8-12 weeks old. We sell them as limited with very few show/breeding homes. We feel a great family pet is most important first. We have a long contract and follow through on it to ensure our pups maintain a good quality of life. We guarantee our pups health and will support you the life of the dog. If at anytime you cannot give our dogs a forever home, we ask that you contact us first (as in our contract). We have the right to take the dog back first. At anytime we will gladly take the dog back even if it is very old and you cannot care for it. We do this because we don't want the Amstaff to end up at a shelter.
