Frequently Asked Questions
Southern Colorado in Penrose
Begin by filling out the puppy application, I will then contact you if I have puppies available
My puppies start at $2000 to $2500 depending on bloodline and Limited AKC Registration.
I would notify you when it’s safe for the puppy to go to their new home - for my program that is usually around 9 weeks to ensure they have adequate immunity from their shots
I use Venmo for payments and ask that a deposit be made when the pups are two weeks old and I know they are good and strong with full payment due before you pick up the puppy.
Yes, since I sell pet Corgis, not for breeding purposes. On occasion, I may allow a pup to be purchased for breeding but there are a much higher fee and a serious background check. Too many people have decided that Corgis are a money-making machine and are breeding not for the love of the breed, but of the money they think they can make. If you see elsewhere on my site a breakdown of what it costs to raise a litter, you’ll see very little profit if it’s done right.
I will continue to send photos weekly so you can watch the growth of the puppy you’ve chosen and will keep you updated on your puppy’s growth. When the puppy reaches 8 weeks old I will arrange a time for you to pick up your puppy the next week.
Full registration means you have the right to breed your puppy when it’s old enough, but I sell pet Corgis, not for breeding unless an agreement is worked out ahead of time and an additional fee paid. So 99% of all puppies will have Limited registration, that ONLY limits breeding, you still have all the benefits of the AKC for shows, trials, information, clinics, etc..
No, I don’t believe young puppies should be shipped. However, if you can’t pick the puppy up yourself I would contact the airlines and find a flight nanny, who will fly with your puppy in the cabin, to its destination. During Covid, I believe the only safe way is to plan on picking the pup up yourself.
All my breeding Corgis are DNA tested before I ever breed them to ensure your puppy is not at risk for DM, vWd, EIC, has good hips and eyes, and have a thorough examination done on the puppy at birth, at time of the first shot, and before you pick him/her up. Their Mom is fed the best feed possible and I continue to feed the puppies either Royal Canin or Hill’s Science Diet Puppy with a small dose of fish oil with Omega 3.
Yes. I encourage that. Or if in Colorado I can arrange to meet you at a central location.
On occasion. If one of my females has issues with breeding or difficulty delivering, I will retire her and if she’s young enough to adapt easily to a new home, I will consider it. But it’s not something I do often. The person/family still has to go through the adoption process as if they were doing it for a puppy.
Absolutely and I encourage every puppy buyer whether they adopt their pup from me or another breeder to ask for references, especially from their vet.
I use Venmo for payment for my puppies and ask that you set your account up (it’s free) before time for the deposit. They charge no fees and it’s very simple and safe.
I DNA test ALL my breeding Corgis, to ensure your puppy is not at risk for DM, vWd and EIC.
I do, to ensure no misunderstandings or confusion.
The color that the puppy is at birth will change somewhat. The Red and White Corgis are all born with a sable coloring that most often fades as they grow.
I will always take your Corgi back, for any reason. I will re-home your puppy and any and all rehoming fees will go to the person surrendering the puppy after the new adopter is approved.
Absolutely! I wouldn’t allow them to leave until I know they have immunity.
No, but I give the owners information on how and where to get that done. It is up to the buyer to decide that. I do encourage it, however.
My puppies are all fed either Royal Canin Puppy or Hill’s Science Diet Puppy.
Probably not. Although I try to start them on puppy pads and encourage them to go while outside, they will not be completely housebroken when they leave.
Yes, crate training is essential, since that is their sanctuary when they are tired or nervous about something. I leave the door to the crate open all day so that they have access to it, but keep them shut in during the night so they don’t get into trouble.
Not at this time. COVID has changed a lot of the “visiting” trends and you can ask for photos that I will be happy to send, but no in-person visits at this time.
