At times, we may be looking to place a puppy/dog in a guardian home.  In a nutshell, this is how a guardian home works.  We will place a puppy/dog with an approved family.  This may be a puppy born here, or may be one purchased from another breeder.  The puppy/dog will live with the guardian family as their pet but we will retain breeding rights on him/her.  This gives the family a quality puppy/dog and gives the pup/dog a forever home, while allowing us to have more diversity in our lines and/or to continue lines that we are breeding here.  In order to be approved as a guardian home you MUST have a securely fenced yard for the pup/dog!  This means a physical fence, not an underground one. As a guardian family, you will be responsible for maintaining the health of the dog by proper diet, exercise, socialization and vet care....and, most importantly, the pup shall be a beloved family pet.  When the dog reaches breeding age, any health testing (for breeding purposes) will be done at the expense of the breeder.  If the breeder finds that the dog is not of breeding quality, does not have the need to use the dog, or when the dog retires from breeding, the guardian home agrees to have the dog spayed/neutered, within a specified timeframe, at their expense.   To qualify as a guardian home for a male, you must live within a 1 hour drive from our house in Millersburg and be willing to work with  us and have the dog available when needed for breeding and/or travel to meet  us with the dog when needed.  For a female, you may live further than 1 hour away but must be willing to travel to meet us with the dog when needed.  A female will come here for breeding then will return to her guardian family until approx. 1 week before her due date at which time she will return to us to have her puppies.  The female will then return to her guardian family once she fully weans her puppies (she will stay here about 7 weeks total).  The number of litters a female will have depends on each individual dog and may be only 1 or up to 4.  We will board our guardian females while you go on vacation as we like to have them come stay with us so that they are comfortable when here having puppies.  If you would be interested in being a guardian home for one of our beautiful puppies/dogs, please email Molly at mjlafleche@hotmail.com
Thanks!

We have several guardian opportunities available for  pups/dogs!  Some young pups, some older pups and some adults.   Read the description below for information about being a guardian family.  If this is something you would be interested in doing,  please email Molly at mjlafleche@hotmail.com
Zola
Female, 2 years old, 65lbs, housebroken and well behaved in the house.  Has had some obedience training.  Dominant with other dogs so will do best as the only dog (and loves to get a lot of attention).  She has a lot of energy so will do great with an active person/couple.  She is a light shedder.
There will be more available (not pictured) so feel free to ask!
Leroy
Leroy is a purebred Bernese Mountain Dog.  He is almost 2 years old.  Leroy is the such a sweet boy, a big ole' teddy bear:)  He loves everyone he meets and loves getting hugs.  He would be a great addition to a house with or without kids.  He gets along fine with other dogs and is so gentle with my younger pups, just lays down and lets them crawl all over him.
