CAMP'S CASINO BOXERS

Are Boxers a good family dog?

ABSOLUTELY!!!!

A WELL BRED WELL TRAINED BOXER IS AN AWESOME FAMILY PET. THAT IS THE KEY HOWEVER.LIKE ANY DOG THEY NEED TRAINING AND SOCIALIZATION TO BE THE BEST THEY CAN BE. THEY CAN BE STUBBORN AND HAVE LOTS OF ENERGY . THAT ENERGY DECLINES SOMEWHAT AS THEY AGE BUT THEY NEED TO BE KEPT BUSY DOING THINGS. IF NOT THEY WILL KEEP THEMSELVES BUSY DOING THINGS. THE THINGS THEY CHOOSE TO DO MIGHT NOT BE WHAT YOU WANT THEM TO DO HOWEVER. REMEMBER A TIRED DOG SLEEPS, IT DOESN'T DO BAD THINGS . JUST LIKE A KID. IF A CHILD IS KEPT BUSY  BY THE TIME BED ROLLS AROUND THEY ARE READY FOR IT. EXCERCISE AND MENTAL STIMULATION MAKES FOR A HAPPY BETTER BEHAVED BOXER. BOXERS ARE RATED VERY HIGH IN THEIR TOLERANCE FOR CHILDREN OF ALL AGES AND THE FACT THAT THEY ARE ALL ABOUT BEING AROUND PEOPLE DOESN'T HURT ONE BIT EITHER, BUT KEEP IN MIND NO DOG NO MATTER HOW GREAT SHOULD NOT BE A BABY SITTER. DON'T EXPECT IT TO TOLERATE BEING HIT WITH STICKS , PINCHED, POKED OR TEASED. YOU WOULDN'T TOLERATE IT , SOONER OR LATER MOST DOGS WON'T EITHER. THIS KIND OF BEHAVIOR FROM A CHILD IS UNACCEPTABLE. THAT BEING SAID BOXERS LIKE TO BE INCLUDED IN FAMILY LIFE. THEY LIKE DRAPING THEMSELVES ACROSS A KID AND BEING DRAPED IN RETURN. THEY SEEM TO TOLERATE BEING DRESSED UP AND TOENAILS PAINTED. THEY ARE "ALL UP IN IT" WHEN IT COMES TO MAKING MUD PIES, PLAYING OUTSIDE, COLLECTING ACORNS ETC ETC. AND WILL HAPPILY PARTICIPATE IN GAMES OF ALL SORTS SO ENJOY THE FOUR LEGGED KID AS NATURE INTENDED :)

WHAT IS LIMITED REGISTRATION?

AKC REGISTERED DOGS COME TWO WAYS.FULL REGISTRATION (PURPLE AND WHITE ADULT PAPERS) OR LIMITED REGISTRATION (ORANGE AND WHITE ADULT PAPERS). BOTH MEANS THE PUPPIES COME FROM AKC REGISTERED DOGS, BOTH MEAN YOUR GETTING A REGISTERED PET, HOWEVER THE LIMITED PAPERS ARE SAYING THAT YOU HAVE PURCHASED A PET ONLY. YOU UNDERSTAND THAT BY SAYING YOU WANT A PET THAT MEANS YOU DON'T WANT TO BREED . IF YOU CHOOSE TO BREED YOUR DOG THOSE PUPPIES WILL NOT BE ELIGIBLE FOR AKC REGISTRATION AND YOU WILL VIOLATE THE CONTRACT THAT YOU HAVE SIGNED WITH US.LIMITED CAN BE CHANGED TO FULL (BREEDING RIGHTS) HOWEVER THAT WILL DEPEND ENTIRELY UPON THE INDIVIDUAL BREEDER AND WHAT THEY WANT TO SEE FROM THE DOG AS AN ADULT. SOME DOGS EVEN THOUGH THEY ARE GREAT, WONDERFUL HAPPY ETC ARE NOT BREEDING QUALITY. ASK YOUR BREEDER FOR DETAILS AS EACH ONE MAY HAVE DIFFERENT REQUIREMENTS, AND BE PREPARED TO PAY EXTRA FOR A BREEDING QUALITY DOG.THIS IS COMMON PRACTICE . "BUT I DON'T WANT A SHOW DOG" YOU SAY "ONLY A PET".. BUT YOU DO WANT A NICE DOG THAT LOOKS LIKE A BOXER AND ACTS LIKE A BOXER RIGHT. YOU SEE MY DOGS, LOVE THEM AND WANT YOUR PUP TO RESEMBLE THEM? WELL TO GET THESE DOGS I HAVE PUT LOTS OF TIME AND MONEY INTO BREEDING THE BEST THAT I CAN, FOR YEARS. THAT IS AN AT A GLANCE EASY EXPLANATION OF THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN WELL BRED BOXERS AND NOT.  LIKE PEOPLE... PUPS MOST TIMES LOOK LIKE PARENTS OR GRANDPARENTS. IF YOU LIKE THE LOOK OF THE RELATIVES CHANCES ARE YOU WILL HAVE A PUPPY TO BE PROUD OF EVEN AS A PET. I HAVE VERY STRICT REQUIREMENTS AND RARELY PLACE A BREEDING DOG.MY CONTRACT BELOW EXPLAINS FULLY WHAT YOU ARE BEING SOLD AT TIME OF PURCHASE.I MAKE NO QUALMS ABOUT THIS AND WILL ASK YOU SEVERAL TIMES. I WOULD ALSO LIKE FOR YOU TO KNOW THAT WHILE MY DOGS ARE AKC REGISTERED AND ALL ARE HEALTH TESTED AND VERY WELL BRED UNLESS OTHER WISE STATED YOU WILL NOT RECEIVE AKC PAPERS UNTIL TIME OF SPAY/NEUTER. I GIVE A TON OF INFO ON MY DOGS FROM COPIES OF THE PARENTS AKC PAPERS AND AKC PEDIGREE TO COPIES OF ALL HEALTH TESTING DONE ON PARENTS AND MANY TIMES GRAND PARENTS OR EVEN GREAT GRAND PARENTS. EVERYTHING I HAVE ON THAT PUPPY'S LINES YOU GET A COPY OF AND TRUST ME THAT ALL ADDS UP TO A BOOK, BUT I HAVE IN THE PAST HAD PEOPLE PAY FOR A PET PUPPY AND TAKE THOSE LIMITED AKC PAPERS AND GET A SECOND OR THIRD RATE REGISTRATION LIKE CKC ETC FROM THEM AND VOLIA NEXT THING I KNOW THERE ARE MY LINES THAT I HAVE BUILT OVER YEARS ADVERTISED ON THE NET WITH PUPS -THE DOG I SOLD THEM AT A YEAR OLD BEING BRED WITH NO TESTING OF IT'S OWN, AND BEING BRED TO A STUD WHO IS ONLY PET QUALITY (OR LESS) HIMSELF JUST BECAUSE THE PEOPLE THINK THEY CAN TURN A FAST BUCK OR HAVE THAT ONE LITTER OF PUPS FOR THEIR KIDS TO EXPERIENCE- BOTH OF THESE REASONS ARE BAD BAD BAD. THIS IS A TRUE STORY ON A WHITE FEMALE WE PLACED (IN FACT BECAUSE I "KNEW" THIS WOMAN I GAVE HER THE PUPPY AS A GIFT ONLY TO GET BIT IN THE BUTT OVER IT) AND ANOTHER SWEET BUT LONG NOSED LITTLE FLASHY RED FEMALE ABOUT 10 YEARS AGO.... AND BECAUSE OF A FEW BEING DISHONEST ALL MUST SUFFER :( ..THOSE PAPERS WILL BE SENT WHEN WE RECIEVE PROOF OF SPAY OR NEUTER .WE HAVE HAD VERY GOOD LUCK KEEPING THE BEST OF THE BEST FEMALES BACK FROM OUR MAMA DOGS... THIS WORKS WELL FOR US AS WE HAVE INDEPTH KNOWLEDGE OF WHICH MAMAS WERE THE BEST. WE DON'T LOOK WITH AN "AWWWWW HOW CUTE" EYE. WE ARE CRITICAL AND WATCH AND PONDER AND SOMETIMES SECOND GUESS OURSELVES. I HAVE KEPT GALS BACK THAT ENDED UP  PET QUALITY, TO BE PLACED WITH WONDERFUL HOMES. I HAVE KICKED MYSELF IN THE BUTT FOR PLACING A FEW GIRLS OVER THE YEARS THAT I WAS ON THE FENCE ABOUT AND THAT FINISHED JUST BEAUTIFUL, HENCE THE NAME "CASINO KENNELS" ...IT'S A ROLL OF THE DICE...BUT MORE ON BREEDING. JUST LIKE SOME PEOPLE, SOME ANIMALS ARE NOT GOOD MOTHERS EVEN IF THEY ARE THE BEST PETS IN THE WORLD. IT WOULD SURPRISE  PEOPLE TO KNOW THAT SOME MOTHER DOGS EVEN THO THEY THEMSELVES ARE SUPER...DON'T CLEAN THIER BABIES WELL, DON'T KEEP THEIR BABIES WARM. OVER LICK THEM AND CAUSE SORES, UNDERLICK THEM WHERE THEY STAY DIRTY ALL THE TIME, STEP AND OR LAY ON THEM. OUTRIGHT KILL AND OR EAT THEM. SOME DON'T HAVE GOOD TEATS OR PRODUCE GOOD MILK. SOME DON'T BREED EASY OR WHELP EASY. THERE ARE SO VERY MANY FACETS THAT INVOLVE A GOOD BREEDING DOG , NOT JUST LOOKS AND TEMPERMENT OUTSIDE OF THE WHELPING BOX. SO WE PLOT AND PLAN AND START WITH LOOKS AND ATTITUDE, CROSS OUR FINGERS AND HOPE FOR THE BEST.WE HAVE WAITED TWO OR MORE YEARS ONLY TO SPAY A FEMALE AND PLACE IN A PET HOME BECAUSE OF ABOVE ISSUES OR INFERIOR PUPPIES. IT'S VERY VERY HARD. WE PURCHASE UNRELATED MALES. WE ALWAYS TRY TO GET BETTER LINES WITH OUR STUDS.ALWAYS. EVEN IF THAT MEANS PAYING $2,000-$3,000 FOR THEM. I ALWAYS GET COMPLEMENTED ON MY DOGS BOTH MALES AND FEMALES , HOW NICE THEY ARE BUT PEOPLE WILL BALK AS THE PRICE SOMETIMES. "I JUST WANT A PET. THERE ARE OTHER BRINDLES OUT THERE FOR $300. THIS IS TRUE BUT YOU WANT A PET THAT LOOKS AS GOOD AS THE ADULTS YOU ARE VIEWING RIGHT (SEE ABOVE)? WELL IF YOU WANT QUALITY , JUST LIKE IN ALL THINGS THE PRICE WILL BE A BIT HIGHER. BECAUSE I DEMAND QUALTY FROM MYSELF AND MY DOGS I ALSO DEMAND QUALITY FROM THE RARE PUPPY WHO IS SOLD AS A BREEDER  AND THE PEOPLE I TRUST TO KEEP THE QUALITY UP ARE FEW AND FAR BETWEEN. THATS NOT SAYING THAT YOU AREN'T ONE OF THEM. YOU MAY VERY WELL BE BUT THEN IF YOU WANT QUALITY MY BREEDING DOGS ARE SOLD AT "THE GOING RATE" WHICH IS MUCH MUCH HIGHER THAN MY PET PUPPIES THAT I PLACE VERY REASONABLE. DO YOUR RESEARCH ON QUALITY DOGS. THEY ARE NOT $300 FOR SURE...WHY THE HUGE PRICE INCREASE ? BECAUSE YOU MIGHT BE TAKING "MY NEXT BEST THING" FROM MY BREEDING PROGRAM BECAUSE I WON'T SELL A PUP FOR BREEDING THAT I WOULDN'T WANT TO KEEP MYSELF AND MY EYE IS VERY VERY DISCERNING , THEN IF I SELL YOU THAT NEXT BEST THING I WILL HAVE TO ENDURE KICKING MYSELF IN THE BUTT FOR YEARS TO COME!!!!!   :) ...SO TO WIND A LONG WINDED SECTION UP. DEMEND QUALITY - BE EXPECTED TO PAY A REASONABLE AMOUNT FOR QUALITY - AND IF YOU WANT A BREEDING DOG BE PREPARED FOR A FEW HOOPS TO JUMP THRU. THIS IS TRUE FOR MOST BREEDERS OF HIGER QUALITY DOGS. I TRY TO BE NICE ABOUT IT -OTHER USUALLY ARE TOO BUT GOD HELP YOU IF YOU RUN ACROSS A JADED ONE!!!!! BOY DO I REMEMBER THOSE DAYS!

CAN I SEE THE PARENTS OF YOUR PUPPIES?

YES YES YES AND HECK YES!!!!   :)    I ALWAYS HAVE , AT THE VERY LEAST THE MOTHER ON SITE AND MOST OF THE TIME THE FATHER .SOMETIMES I MAY EVEN HAVE ONE OR MORE GRANDPARENTS TOO.  HERE'S A TIP FOR PUPPY BUYERS TO CONSIDER STRONGLY :   MOMMA DOGS CAN BE A BIT GROUCHY OVER VERY YOUNG PUPPIES BUT IF THEY ARE NOT BACK TO THEIR WIGGLY PEOPLE LOVING SELVES BY THE TIME THOSE PUPS ARE 3-4 WEEKS OLD YOU MAY CONSIDER GOING ELSE WHERE. BOXERS ARE SUPPOSED TO BE A FRIENDLY BREED.IF THE PARENTS SHOW MORE AGGRESSION THAN JUST YOUR ROUTINE "HEY THERE IS A STRANGER HERE" BARK OR GRUMBLE, IF THEY DON'T WARM UP TO YOUR WITHIN A FEW MINUTES, IF THEY ACTIVELY TRY TO BITE OR THEY WONT COME TO YOU AT ALL LOOK ELSEWHERE.DON'T ACCEPT EXCUSES ...SEE THOSE PARENTS! THE OLD "THE MOTHER IS PROTECTIVE OVER HER PUPPIES" EXCUSE DOESN'T FLY AS THE PUPS AGE BECAUSE BY THE TIME THOSE PUPS ARE 8 WEEKS THEM MAMAS ARE FLAT TIRED OF BEING WOOLED KNAWD ON AND HARRASSED BY A HERD OF TEETH AND TOENAILS. REMEMBER , AN OVERLY CRANKY OR SHY DOG CAN AND WILL PASS THIS TRAIT ON. BESIDES, IF YOU CANT SEE THE PARENTS IN PERSON HOW CAN YOU BE SURE THEY LOOK LIKE A BOXER IS SUPPOSED TO! TALK IS CHEAP BUT SAGGY BOOBS DON'T LIE ABOUT WHO THE MAMA OF A LITTER IS!

WILL YOU MEET ME TO SAVE ON GAS?

I AM SORRY I DON'T MEET PEOPLE AT ALL.THIS IS FOR SEVERAL VERY IMPORTANT REASONS.

FIRST OFF I AM VERY PROUD OF MY FACILITIES, I WANT PEOPLE TO COME AND SEE THE YEARS OF HARD WORK THAT HAS WENT INTO CASINO KENNELS. 

SECOND, YOU CAN'T SEE THOSE PARENTS! (SEE ABOVE)

THIRD,PUPPIES SHOULD NOT BE DRUG AROUND WHEN THEY ARE THAT YOUNG, THEY CAN PICK THINGS UP, THEY DON'T ACT LIKE THEIR NORMAL SELVES AND YOU CAN'T REALLY TELL IF THEY ARE JUST CAR SICK FROM RIDING OR REALLY NOT HEALTHY! THEY CAN''T SAFELY PLAY , YOU CAN'T TELL TRUE PERSONALITY AND IT'S NOT GOOD BREEDING PRACTICE. THAT BEING SAID I HAVE ON OCCASION HAD PEOPLE COME OUT AND PURCHASE A PUPPY AND WE HAPPEN TO BE GOING THAT WAY WHEN THEY ARE READY FOR PICK UP (RARE BUT IT HAS HAPPENED) -THESE FOLKS HAVE SEEN OUR DOGS AND PLACE. WE HAVE DROPPED A BABY OFF IF WE HAPPEN TO BE GOING THAT WAY. ASK  AND IF SO I WILL WORK WITH YOU BUT AGAIN THIS IS UNUSUAL.

 BUT...... UPON INITIAL PURCHASE WITH A BREEDER NOT KNOWN TO YOU NEVER NEVER NEVER MEET SOMEONE...AGAIN NO EXCUSES! a COMMON ONE IS "I DON'T WANT A DISEASE DRUG ONTO MY PROPERTY" ...WELL FOLKS HERE'S ANOTHER FACTOID. WHILE THE THOUGHT OF DISEASES LIKE PARVO SCARE ME TO DEATH I RISK "DRAGGING IT ONTO MY PROPERTY" ON MY SHOES *****EVERY TIME**** I GO TO THE VET-GO TO THE PARK- STOP AT A REST AREA- GO TO A PET STORE- A DOG SHOW- A HOUSE IN TOWN A YARD SALE...GET THE JIST HERE...I WANT FOLKS TO COME TO MY PLACE FIRST WHEN THEY GO OUT PUPPY HUNTING JUST FOR THIS RESON BUT I AM A REALIST AND KNOW THE DISEASES THAT CAN EFFECT CANINES. I KNOW THE LIFE CYCLE OF THE BACTERIA AND VIRUSES THAT THREATEN MY ANIMALS AND I KNOW THAT I OR ANY ONE OF MY MANY KIDS CAN ACCIDENTLY PICK IT UP IN THE MOST INNOCENT OF PLACES. I PERSONALLY WOULD NOT BUY A DOG THAT I COULDN'T SEE THE PARENTS AND PUT MY HANDS ON THEM. I WOULDN'T EXPECT MY CLIENTS TO EITHER.

WHEN CAN WE SEE YOUR PUPPIES?

PUPPIES CAN BE VIEWED ANY TIME  AFTER THEY ARE ABOUT TWO WEEKS OLD OR SO BUT I WILL SURE SEND PICTURES EARLIER.AT TWO WEEKS THEY ARE UP TODDLING AROUND, EYES AND EARS OPEN , MOMS AREN'T QUITE SO NERVOUS, AND AT THIS AGE PUPS ARE USUALLY THRIVING AND NO ISSUES HAVE AROSE FROM TAIL DOCKS OR FADING PUPPY SYNDROME. BEFORE THAT AND THEY JUST PRETTY MUCH EAT SLEEP AND POO.

 ****PLEASE NOTE:  IF YOU ARE GOING OUT LOOKING AT OTHER KENNELS/PUPPIES WE STRONGLY INSIST THAT YOU MAKE US YOUR FIRST STOP (AGAIN SEE ABOVE) .THIS IS NOT IN ANY WAY A SELLING TACTIC FOR WE FEEL OUR DOGS SPEAK FOR THEMSELVES AND I CAN'T COUNT THE NUMBER OF TIMES FOLKS HAVE CAME AND LOOKED. BALKED ABOUT PAYING THAT EXTRA COUPLE HUNDRED BUT CALLED BACK LATER TO RESERVE A PUPPY AFTER SEEING "THE REST" .... THIS IS SIMPLY BECAUSE WE DON'T WANT ANY DISEASES BOUGHT HERE ON YOUR CLOTHES SHOES ETC. WE HAVE A VERY CLEAN ,DISEASE FREE FACILITY AND WANT TO KEEP IT THAT WAY! WHEN HANDLING PUPPIES YOU WILL BE ASKED TO WASH YOUR HANDS BEFORE PLAYING WITH THEM AND WILL BE VERY NICELY INTERROGATED ON WHERE YOU HAVE BEEN THAT DAY AND WHAT OTHER FOUR LEGGED PEOPLE YOU HAVE BEEN WITH, IF THEY ARE UP TO DATE ON SHOTS ETC! :) *******PLEASE KEEP IN MIND WE HAVE LIVES TOO- SO IF YOU MAKE AN APPOINTMENT AT A CERTAIN TIME IT IS FOR A REASON! I WANT TO GIVE YOU PLENTY OF TIME TO MESS WITH THE DOGS AND PUPPIES AND TO BE ABLE TO ANSWER YOUR QUESTIONS ONE ON ONE. I SURE DON'T MIND 15-20 MIN EARLY OR LATE BUT SHOWING UP AN HOUR OR MORE BEFORE OR AFTER AN APPOINTMENT IS MADE IS KIND OF POOR FORM. YOU WOULDN'T DO THAT TO YOUR DOCTOR OR YOUR WORK , YOU WOULDN'T LIKE IT DONE TO YOU IF YOUR WAITING AROUND SO PLEASE PLEASE DON'T DO IT TO US! WHEN WE HAVE PUPS FOR SALE WE BOOK ABOUT AN HOUR APART FOR CUSTOMERS. PLEASE KEEP THIS IN MIND, AND IF YOU HAVE CHANGED YOUR MIND OR HAVE DECIDED FOR ANY REASON TO BACK OUT NO HARM NO FOUL ***JUST CALL US SO WE AREN'T WAITING HOURS ON SOMEONE WHO ISN'T GOING TO SHOW***** WE WON'T PRESSURE YOU OR TRY AND MAKE YOU FEEL BAD JUST A QUICK CALL OR TEXT SO WE CAN GET ON WITH OUR DAY!

If using a vet other than the above stated, any and all findings MUST be mailed on the office letterhead to the sellers within one month or this contract is void.At the initial vet exam,  should this puppy be found to be in ill health which is clearly due to a LIFE THREATENING congenital problem, LIFE THREATENING disease or care provided by Casino Kennels, this puppy may be returned for another of the same monetary value , although specific markings are not promised .  This puppy will come from the next available litter.  The above mentioned puppy has a three year from of birth guarantee against major life threatening diseases i.e.  MAJOR heart defects (innocent or “puppy” murmurs are not covered as they are NOT life threatening), moderate to severe hip or elbow dysplasia, liver or kidney failure and certain life threatening, fast growing cancers.Other thing  that may lead to a poor quality of life issue may also be  covered on a case to case basis and you will be treated fairly.

Transportation will be provided by the buyer. All information on replacement is required and no replacement will be made unless furnished in a timely manner.  In regards to spay and neuter...it is not reccommended for this breed to be sterilized before sexual maturity as the hormones needed to achieve that are also reasponsible for many other physical growth and develoment factors. While proof of sterilization on a vet letter head with the microchip ID included is required before papers are sent early spay or neuter (before one year on males and first heat on females) will void this contract (included is tips for training and heat cycles on females to prevent unwanted accidents.) as will Leptospirosis vaccine which has many side effects and does not cover all strains of the disease. It is not considered a core vaccine and we feel the risks far out weight the benefits).This puppy/dog has been painstakingly reared.  We don’t take vacations, and most of our time and money goes back into these dogs.  They have been a huge part of our life for 20 years, but we understand that the loss of jobs, new babies, etc. occur.  For this reason, we will be happy for the life of the dog to take it back for any reason and either provide or find a suitable home for it. We reserve first rights on any dog who is rehomed . This means that  if you cannot keep a puppy produced here we must be contacted before placing the puppy/dog so that we have the option of taking it back if it is a suitable fit or helping you find a good home.This is an agreement saying that the puppy/dog will NOT be taken to a Humane Society,Shelter OR Rescue Group. We apologize but no purchase price will be refunded for returns. 


The buyer releases Casino Kennels (Owners, Bill and Rhonda Camp) from all liabilities , expenses, vet costs, fees, and damages by fault of the dog at time of sale. 

***If purchasing a white Boxer puppy, the health guarantee includes diseases contracted here (Parvo, Distemper, etc.)   It also includes health issues such as hip dysplasia etc if above requirements are met but because of its coloring we do not guarantee against deafness (although we do hearing tests on any white puppy produced and will be completely honest regarding those tests) .Be aware white dogs can and will sunburn and like humans can get skin cancer from this.

 

  Boxers are prone to all types of cancers.  Monthly, run your hands over every inch of your dog, look in the mouth, and on the stomach.  Any lump or bump should be inspected and immediately looked at by your vet.  Vet checks are vital for this reason alone. 

I, the buyer, agree this contract has been read, explained and that I understand its contents fully.  I also understand that any questions I have asked have been answered to my satisfaction.

SHOTS AND WORMING SCHEDULE/RECORD

 

Shots:

Date given:_______  age (in wks.)__________

Date given:_______  age (in wks.)__________

Date given:_______  age (in wks.)__________

 

***IMPORTANT***.  Puppies need a series of shots for full immunity.  Take this record to your vet.  He will help you with what you need such as boosters and when they should be given.  When taking your puppy home and until your vet says it is safe, keep it away from rest areas, parks and other public places as it is very easy to pick up diseases in these high traffic areas.  Also, keep the exposure to dogs at a minimal until puppy has had its booster shots.   Diseases have an incubation period and we will not guarantee a puppy that has fallen ill when the incubation period says it was in your care. That is why we stress NOT taking your puppy places until your vet says it's safe ..usually after the 3rd shot. 

WORMING:

Date given:__________  Wormed with:____________________

WE HAVE WORMED YOUR PUPPY WITH A GOOD QUALITY WORMER ON A SCHEDULE WE FEEL WILL KEEP YOUR PUPPY HEALTHY, HOWEVER, DOGS HAVE WORMS EVEN LARGE HEALTHY ONES.  THEY ARE ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE TO COMPLETELY ERADICATE.  WORMS WILL ENCYST IN A DOG’S MUSCLE TISSUE AND WAIT UNTIL TIMES OF STRESS (SUCH AS TAKING THEM HOME) OR SICKNESS AND THEN HATCH.  DOGS CAN PICK UP WORMS FROM THE SOIL, FLEAS, OR RODENTS, ETC.  THIS IS WHY A WORMING SCHEDULE FROM YOUR VET IS VERY IMPORTANT.

** A few tips for taking your puppy home.  These puppies are still VERY young.  Please monitor your puppy with children.  We realize that children are excited to be adding a new member to the family and that they want to show your puppy and attention it deserves, but the puppy’s bones are still fragile and he/she can get hurt easily by being handled too much and too roughly by children, especially young ones (this health guarantee does not cover injury or broken bones given to puppy by “rough housing).  Puppy may also decide this is rough housing and it is totally acceptable and that if its younger master can get rough, it can too.  This may lead to someone being “nipped” or more so, bit.  Constant “wooling” (being drug around, etc) without breaks and time outs for the puppy to get in a nap can actually cause your puppy to stress and it may make him/her sick and we DO NOT guarantee a puppy for stress only related factors.  Your puppy needs a quiet place to “get away from it all”.  We recommend a reasonably sized dog crate.  Crates are wonderful tools in house breaking too!

 

Be prepared for him to cry the first few nights.  Remember this is all new to him/her.  No brothers or sisters to cuddle to and everything is strange.  If you are tempered to put him/her in bed with you that is fine, but remember, he/she will ALWAYS expect to be allowed in bed.  Whatever you don’t want him/her to do 60 lbs do not let him do at 6 lbs.  Set rules NOW.  No jumping and scratching.  No biting or mouthing on your hands, feel, clothes, etc, only on proper toys.  If he/she howls REALLY badly in his crate at night, take him out to go to the bathroom.  NOT a lot of petting at night.  No fussing, just take him/her to the bathroom, put them back and turn off the light.  If he/she sets in again a squirt in the face with a water bottle and a stern “NO” will work wonders. Start with local obedience class when your vet says he/she is up-to-date on the shots.  This will help to keep the puppy from being rude.  A well mannered dog will get him and you a lot more smiles and kind words rather than a rude dog.  It will also let you spend time with your puppy.  He/she will bond to your and he/she will respect you.  If you purchase a white puppy remember it can sunburn so ALWAYS have short coats and in cold weather would benefit, if outside, from a heat lamp and lots of fresh dry bedding. 

 

The puppy’s world will really change when they go home with you.  EVERYTHING is new.  Because of all these stressful changes suddenly in his/her life and because of changes in food and water the puppy may get what is called “stress diarrhea”.  A bit of Pepto Bismol will help with this.  This is not the same as bloody mucus filled diarrhea which needs a vet’s attention.  This type is a case of good old fashioned “stress runs”.  WE URGE YOU TO PURCHASE ANY GOOD READING LITERATURE ON THE BREED OF BOXERS.  These help you in all manner of ways from housebreaking to vet visits.  Of course if you have any questions or concerns feel free to call us.  This contract is also for you to be able to all us at any reasonable time.  We will gladly give you help, ideas, or just plain moral support for the life of your puppy.  We love to hear from people who have purchased our dogs so if you have any pictures of info you would like to share please send it to us!

 

*******THIS CONTRACT HAS BEEN IN PLACE AND FOR THE MOST PART UNCHANGED FOR WELL OVER A DECADE. WE FEEL IT CLEARLY IRONS OUT ALL INFORMATION FOR YOU THE BUYER AND US AS THE SELLER.WE WON'T SHOVE THIS UNDER YOUR NOSE AND SAY "HERE SIGN".IF I WAS A BUYER I WOULDN'T DO THAT MYSELF. WE TAKE ALL THE TIME NEEDED AND GO OVER EVERY PART ALLOWING ANY QUESTIONS YOU HAVE TO BE ANSWERED AND MAKING SURE WE ARE ON THE SAME PAGE. WE FEEL THIS IS ONLY FAIR TO YOU AND US. I KNOW THE CONTRACT IS A BIT LONG WINDED BUT EVERYTHING IN IT IS THERE FOR A REASON...EVEN ON THE "WELL DUHHHH OF COURSE YOUR NOT LIABLE FOR DAMAGES FROM THIS PUPPY CHEWING UP FURNITURE AT MY HOUSE" ...ETC...BUT YOU WOULD BE SURPRISED. IF YOU HAVE QUESTIONS REGARDING THE CONTRACT ASK ME..OR BETTER YET ASK A VET! THEY ARE GREAT RESOURCES FOR THINGS LIKE THIS!

HOW OLD ARE THE PUPPIES WHEN....?

1.) THEY CAN GO HOME?......-8 WEEKS OR OLDER NOT BEFORE...PERIOD...END OF STORY...NOT AT 6 WEEKS OR SEVEN. SORRY .IN FACT THE STATE OF MISSOURI HAS A LAW AGAINST PUPPY SALES BEFORE 8 WEEKS. THEY ARE JUST TOO LITTLE. THEY GET ALOT OUT OF LIFE IN THOSE TWO WEEKS OF INTERACTION BETWEEN WEANING AND THEIR NEW FAMILIES , BEING WITH SIBLINGS AND MOTHER..... ALSO FOR THEIR HEALTH...A PUPPY SHOT GIVEN AT 5-6 WEEKS ******IS NOT FULLY EFFECTIVE IF THEY HAVE BEEN NURSING FROM THEIR MOTHER AND SHE HAS HAD UP TO DATE SHOTS***** MATERNIAL ANTIBODIES FROM THE MILK INTERFEAR WITH THE TITERS IN THE SHOTS MAKIING THEM LESS EFFECTIVE...HENCE THE SERIES GIVEN AS BOOSTERS THRU OUT THE PUPS FIRST YEAR AND GIVING A PUP A SHOT AT FOUR WEEKS UNLESS 100% BOTTLEFED IS USELESS........BY 8 WEEKS MY PUPS WILL HAVE BEEN WORMED THREE TIMES AND HAVE HAD TWO PUPPY SHOTS (6 WEEKS AND 8 WEEKS) WITH A HIGH TITER VET QUALITY SHOT... AND ONE KENNEL COUGH SHOT. THEY WILL HAVE HAD THEIR FIRST HEART WORM TREATMENT AND BEEN TREATED WITH FRONTLINE,  UNLESS IT'S THE MIDDLE OF WINTER FOR ALTHOUGH WE HAVE VERY LITTLE FLEA PROBLEMS TICKS IN THE BOONIES ARE HORRIABLE AND WE LIKE TO OBVIOUSLY SEND THE BABIES HOME PARASITE FREE.

2.) THEY GET THEIR EARS CROPPED?.......-DEPENDING UPON THE VET 9-12 WEEKS. THERE ARE THREE DIFFERENT LENGTHS ON EAR CROPS. A UTILITY CROP (ALSO CALLED A MILITARY CROP) THIS IS VERY SHORT AND STANDS EASILY BUT IS REALLY TOO SHORT FOR THE BREED I DON'T MUCH CARE FOR IT ..BUT PERSONAL PREFRENCE YA KNOW?. A PET CROP (OR MEDIUM LENGTH  CROP) WHICH IS THE NORM AND USUALLY STANDS WITH NOT TOO MANY WEEKS OF WRAPPING OR A SHOW CROP (ALSO CALLED A LONG CROP) WHICH IS VERY STRIKING BUT CAN TAKE MONTHS TO YEARS TO STAND AT ALL AND REQUIRES DILIGENCE . I WILL HAPPILY SHARE WITH YOU ALL I HAVE LEARNED OVER THE YEARS REGARDING CROPS AND POSTING AND CAN REFER YOU TO SOME VETS WHO DO A VERY GOOD JOB. KEEP THIS IN MIND AS NOT ALL VETS CROP AND OF THE ONES WHO DO...NOT ALL DO IT WELL (SORRY VETS BUT IT'S TRUE). THE VETS NEED A KEEN EYE AND KNOWLEDGE OF LENGTH AND SHAPE BECAUSE TOO MUCH OR NOT ENOUGH FROM THE EAR CAN RUIN A CROP AND THE LOOK OF A PUP. A GOOD CROP IS ALSO A PRODUCT OF THE GENETICS AS ALL "EAR LEATHER" IS NOT EQUAL BUT AGAIN I HAVE LEARNED SOME TRICKS OVER THE YEARS AND IF YOU WANT THOSE EARS TO STAND WE WILL SURE DO OUR BEST TOGETHER TO MAKE IT HAPPEN!

3.)  THEY CAN BE SPAYED OR NEUTERED?......AGAIN THIS DEPENDS UPON THE VET. BOXERS CAN HAVE ADVERSE REACTIONS TO CERTAIN ANESTHETICS KEEP THIS IN MIND AND DON'T HESITATE TO ASK YOUR VET IF HE IS AWARE OF THE ISSUES AND RISKS THAT ARE ABOVE AND BEYOND THE NORMAL RISK FOR SURGERIES..SPAYING OR NEUTERING IS A GREAT IDEA FOR DOGS THAT ARE PRONE TO CANCERS AS PROSTATE/TESTICULAR CANCERS ARE ERADICATED IN MALES AS ARE OVARIAN/UTERINE CANCERS IN FEMALES.BREAST CANCER IS DROPPED DRAMATICALLY ALSO.PLEASE NOTE THAT CERTAIN ISSUES WITH BLADDER PROBLEMS JOINT ISSUES AND CANCERS BEEN LINKED TO  VERY YOUNG FIXING IN PUPS OF THIS BREED AND DUE TO LACK OF TESTOSTERONE IT MAY TAKE LONGER FOR YOUR MALE TO "BULK OUT" IF NEUTERED BEFORE 10 MONTHS OR SO. TALK TO YOUR VET BUT PLEASE BE VERY AWARE THAT UNLESS MEDICALLY NEEDED AN EALRY SPAY OR NEUTER THAT REMOVES THE TESTICLES OR OVERIES COMPLEATLY VOIDS THIS CONTRACT.

4.)  THEY ARE DONE GROWING?......HEIGHT WISE IN THIS BREED 10 MONTHS TO A YEAR BUT THEY DON'T FINISH "BULKING OUT" UNTIL 2-3 YEARS OLD. SEE ABOVE REGARDING NEUTERED MALES.

5.)THEY ARE HOUSE TRAINED?..... THAT DEPENDS ON**YOU**. HOW DILIGENT YOU ARE,HOW PATIENT YOU ARE AND HOW WELL YOU OUT THINK YOUR DOG! PUPPIES CANNOT HOLD IT WHEN THEY ARE VERY YOUNG.AT 8 WEEKS THEY ARE LIKE A 18 MT OLD BABY.THEY CAN'T HOLD IT ALL DAY OR NIGHT AND SHOULDN'T BE EXPECTED TO. FIGURE THE MAX IS ABOUT 45 MIN FOR EVERY MONTH THEY HAVE BEEN ALIVE TO ABOUT 5-6 MONTHS.BY 8 MONTHS THEY SHOULD BE WELL ON THE WAY IF NOT ALREADY HOUSEBROKE AND BY ONE YEAR TOTALLY HOUSEBROKE IF NOT BEFORE AS STATED.BOXERS ARE SMART AND TIDY, IF CORRECTLY GIVEN THE OPPORTUNITY THEY WILL GO POTTY OUTSIDE.THAT'S WHY I LIKE MY PUPPY HOUSE SO MUCH, THE DOGGIE DOOR ALLOWS THEM TO POTTY OUTSIDE AND THEY QUICKLY GET USED TO THE IDEA OF OUTSIDE NO MATTER THE WEATHER.THIS CUTS DOWN ON POTTY TRAINING ISSUES.PLEASE NOTE THAT BECAUSE PUPPIES DEVELOP A VERY EARLY PREFERENCE FOR THE SURFACE THEY POTTY ON BY THE EXPOSURE TO SAID SURFACE YOUR PUPPY FROM OUR PLACE WILL MOST PROBABLY BE MOST COMFORTABLE GOING ON GRAVEL AT FIRST,AS THAT IS WHAT THEIR PENS ARE LINED WITH HERE...TWO COMMON MISTAKES WITH HOUSE BREAKING...THE EASY ONE TO FIX...SNEAKING OFF TO POTTY...A LONG LEASH...KEEP THAT PUP WITHIN 6 FOOT OF YOU. EVEN WHEN THEY ARE SLEEPING . THE LEASH ALLOWS YOU TO NOTICE SUDDEN TUGGING OR RESTLESSNESS THAT MIGHT INDICATE THEY GOTTA GO SO THAT YOU CAN HAUL THEM  AND HAUL THEM OUTSIDE ASAP. WHEN THEY HAVE ACCIDENTS ...AND THEY WILL, YOU ,-MIGHT AS WELL FACE THAT FACT...MAKE SURE SURE SURE YOU HAVE AN ENZYME DESTROYER LIKE NATURES MIRICLE (RED AND WHITE BOTTLE) ON HAND ...TAKE A PAPERTOWEL AND WIPE THE MESS UP...SAVE IT (WE WILL GET TO THIS IN A SEC ..GROSS I KNOW ) ..***SCRUB THE SPOT UNTIL YOUR FINGERS BLEED. RINSE GOOD AND SCRUB AGAIN. NOT JUST "SOP UP" OR WIPE UP, YOU DON'T GET THAT SMELL OUT THEY WILL GO BACK TO THAT SPOT AND POTTY AGAIN . TAKE THE PAPERTOWEL MESS OUTSIDE AND WIPE IT ON THE GROUND WHERE YOU WANT THAT PUP TO GO. TAKE THE PUP TO THE SPOT EVERY TIME YOU TAKE THEM OUT...HE SMELLS THE SCENT OF HIS OWN URINE/POO AND HE WILL GO THERE . THE NOT SO EASY TO FIX- THIS IS MOSTLY WITH AN OLDER PUPPY 4 MONTHS PLUS TO ADULTHOOD....PUP WILL BE OUT OF HIS KENNEL BOUNCING AROUND AND PLAYING FOR A LONG WHILE...ITS BEEN OUTSIDE SEVERAL TIMES AND MAY WELL HAVE PEED. YOU PUT IT UP...GO TO GET THE MAIL AND THE PUP HAS POOPED IN THE CRATE...NOT JUST AN ACCIDENT OR AN EVERY ONCE IN A WHILE THING BUT OVER AND OVER..AND THE TROMPING, THE SMEARING  THE TOTAL MESS , OH THE MESSSSSS..WELL GUESS WHAT...YOU HAVE A VERY VERY SMART DOG. SERIOUSLY. HOW CAN THAT BE???? YOU SAY...SIMPLY BECAUSE THAT PUP HAS FIGURED OUT THAT HE GETS REWARDED TWICE ..ONCE IN THE HIGH PITCH EXCITED TONE OF YOUR VOICE (omg BUDDY WHAT DID YOU DO?????) AND HE GETS TAKEN OUT OF HIS CRATE PRETTY DANG QUICK AND GIVEN A BATH (YOUR HANDS ALL OVER HIM RUBBING ETC). THE FIX TO THIS...THAT PUP IS STUCK IN HIS CRATE TOO MUCH AND TOO LONG...USUALLY THIS HAPPENS AROUND THE AGE OF 4 MTS TO 1 YEAR WHEN A PUP IS AT ITS MOST CHALLENGING. CALL ME . IT'S TOO LONG FOR ME TO TYPE THE ANSWER   :)

6.) THEY CALM DOWN?....GOOD QUESTION WITH A NOT SO EASY ANSWER. THIS IS A BOUNCY, HIGH ENERGY BREED. THEY CAN BE CLOWNS UP UNTIL THE DAY THEY DIE. THAT BEING SAID I TELL EVERYONE IF YOU DON'T CHOKE THEM TO DEATH AND CAN MAKE IT UNTIL THEY ARE ABOUT TWO (GIVE OR TAKE A YEAR) THEY WILL SETTLE DOWN AND BE THE BEST DOG YOU HAVE EVERY HAD- AGAIN STRESSING THE PROPER TRAINING PART.. YOU DON'T TRAIN THEM THEY ....WILL....BE....A NIGHTMARE...... DOGS ARE NOT HUMANS . WE ATTEMPT TO GIVE THEM HUMAN EMOTIONS AND FEELINGS, AND WHILE I AGREE THEY ARE THINKING FEELING CREATURES WHO ARE MUCH SMARTER THAN MOST PEOPLE WOULD CARE TO BELIEVE THEIR THOUGHT PATTERN IS TRUELY QUITE ALIEN FROM OURS. TO SUCCESSFULLY TRAIN A DOG YOU CANNOT HAVE THE MENTALITY "I DON'T WANT TO CORRECT HIM BECAUSE HE WILL HATE ME..OR I DON'T WANT TO TAKE HIS BED FROM HIS CRATE EVEN THOUGH HE SHREDS IT (AND IT MAY KILL HIM BY INGESTING THE STUFFING) EVERY DAY BECAUSE I DON'T WANT TO BE MEAN TO HIM AND MAKE HIM SLEEP ON A HARD FLOOR". DOGS THINK LIKE DOGS. AGAIN I WILL HELP YOU ALL I CAN WITH THE TRAINING BUT MOST OF THE TIME (SORRY TO SAY THIS FOLKS) THE DOG ISN'T THE ISSUE. IT'S THE OWNER.  START EARLY BE CONSISTANT BE FIRM. :) CALL ME!!!

WHAT DO YOU FEED THEM?

I LIKE A PERFORMANCE DOG FOOD CALLED BLACK GOLD, HARD TO FIND BUT ITS WORKED WELL FOR US, HOWEVER BEING A REALIST I FIRMLY BELIEVE IN FEEDING THE BEST QUALITY DOG FOOD THAT YOU AS AN INDIVIDUAL CAN AFFORD. BOXERS ARE A MEDIUM SIZED BREED WITH LARGE BREED TENDENCIES SO I ***STRONGLY*** RECOMMEND A LARGE BREED PUPPY FOOD FROM 9 WEEKS TO 1 YEAR. THIS KEEPS WEIGHT OFF, JOINTS HEALTHY AND IT KEEPS THEIR FEET AND LEGS FROM BOWING OUTWARD DUE TO VERY RAPID BONE GROWTH. AFTER A YEAR SWITCH TO A QUALITY ADULT FORMULA UNTIL ABOUT AGE 6-7 THEN A SENIOR SPECIFIC FOOD MAY BENEFIT YOUR AGING DOG. STILL CONFUSED..I SUGGEST YOU TALK TO YOUR VET. I FEEL THAT YOU ALREADY HAVE A RAPPORT WITH HIM/HER- TRUST THEM AND CAN ASK QUESTIONS , SO TAKE THEIR ADVICE ON THE FOOD!!  

WHAT ELSE?

HAVE YOUR DOG'S TEETH PROFESSIONALLY CLEANED!!! I CAN'T STRESS HOW MUCH THIS WILL HELP KEEP YOUR DOG HAPPY AND HEALTHY! BECAUSE OF THEIR BITE, BOXERS CAN HAVE TARTER BUILD UP LEADING TO GUM INFECTIONS AND LOST TEETH.YOU WOULDN'T THINK IT ,BUT A GOOD CLEANING ONCE A YEAR CAN ACTUALLY HELP THEM LIVE LONGER!

TRY A BASIC OBEDIENCE CLASS , ***THIS IS IMPORTANT FOLKS...UNLESS YOU ARE A CEASER MILAN CLONE CLASSES CAN REALLY HELP MOST FOLKS****THEY ARE GREAT TO TEACH YOU HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DOG.

EVERYONE IN THE HOUSE SHOULD BE ON BOARD FOR A DOG. MAKE SURE THAT MOM OR DAD IS AS HAPPY ABOUT ANOTHER "KID" TO RAISE AS THE KIDS ARE. BE PREPARED FOR ALOT OF WORK AT FIRST AND SERIOUSLY CONSIDER THAT ADDING A PUPPY TO THE HOUSE THAT HAS KIDS THAT ARE THREE MONTHS THREE YEARS AND FIVE YEARS IS GOING TO BE A CHALLENGE TO SAY THE LEAST.

I WON'T SELL TWO PUPPIES OF THE SAME AGE TO THE SAME HOUSEHOLD AT THE SAME TIME.THEY DON'T BOND AS WELL WITH THEIR PEOPLE- DON'T HOUSE BREAK AS EASY AND ARE HARDER TO TRAIN. WHEN THE ORIGINAL PUPPY IS ABOUT 8 MTS TO A YEAR I WILL HAPPILY PLACE YOUR NEXT KID WITH YOU BUT NOT UNTIL THEN .

ALMOST ALL MY PUPS GO OUT ON LIMITED REGISTRATION- SEE ABOVE EXPLANATION. I HAVE VERY GOOD BLOODLINES THAT I HAVE WORKED A LONG TIME TO GET, AND YES PAID THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS FOR.WE HAVE NOT SKIMPED IN ANY WAY ON OUR BREEDING STOCK.NOT EVERY DOG IS SUITABLE FOR BREEDING. THOSE THAT ARE WILL BE CONSIDERABLY HIGHER THAN THE PUPS WE SELL FOR PETS , PRICES WILL ALSO DIFFER FOR AMERICAN VS EURO- WITH HIGH PERCENTAGE OR FULL EUROPEAN BEING SEVERAL HUNDRED DOLLARS MORE EXPENSIVE , BUT STILL EXTREMELY REASONABLE FOR THE QUALITY OF PUPPY!

HOW TO PICK A PUPPY

WHEN PICKING A PUPPY FIRST AND FOREMOST DO YOUR HOMEWORK!!!!

THE WEB IS A GREAT TOOL FOR DECIDING WHAT BREED THAT WILL FIT AND WORK BEST WITH YOUR HOME, FAMILY AND LIFESTYLE. MAKE SURE YOU CAN PROPERLY AFFORD A PUPPY BECAUSE THAT INITIAL PUPPY COST THAT YOU DROP IS JUST THE BEGINNING. MAKE SURE YOU HAVE ENOUGH TIME TO DEVOTE TO A PUPPY BECAUSE THEY ARE JUST LIKE A BABY AT FIRST.TRUST ME THEY WILL CONSUME YOUR FREE TIME LIKE NO OTHER.MAKE SURE YOU HAVE A VET AT THE READY.VETS ARE A WONDERFUL HELP IN EVERYTHING FROM TRAINING TIPS TO SOMETIMES HELPING YOU FIND A GOOD BREEDER. WHEN YOU HAVE DECIDED UPON A BREED (DON'T JUST PICK A BREED BECAUSE THEY "LOOK COOL" DO SOME SERIOUS RESEARCH AND NARROW IT DOWN , THEN TAKE A FEW TRIPS TO THAT TYPE OF DOG'S BREEDERS AND GET A LITTLE FIRST HAND ONE ON ONE. BE HONEST WITH YOURSELF AND OBJECTIVE NOT JUST AWWWW A CUTE PUPPY OR OH THEY LOOK SO COOL AS ADULTS..NOT EVERYONE CAN HANDLE A CANE CORSO BUT NOT EVERYONE CAN HANDLE A PARSONS RUSSELL TERRIER EITHER...TALK TO YOUR VET, GET THEIR INPUT, TALK TO SHELTERS, THE MORE INFO YOU GET THE BETTER ) .. START BUYING SUPPLIES WELL BEFORE YOU GET THE PUPPY. DOG SUPPLIES ARE EXPENSIVE AND UNLESS YOU ARE ONE OF THE PEOPLE WHO CAN HAPPILY GO BLOW $3,000 IN AN EVENING ON SUPPLIES AND A DOG (NOT ME) THE DRAIN TO YOUR WALLET IS LESS IF YOUR PREPARING YOURSELF IN ADVANCE .   I PERSONALLY THINK THE FOLLOWING IS A MUST: A CRATE THAT HAS A DIVIDER IN IT TO ALLOW YOU TO START SMALL AND MAKE IT BIGGER- SIZE APPROIATE FOR THE BREED YOUR GETTING . A YOUNG PUPPY NEEDS VERY LITTLE ROOM. TOO MUCH AND THEY WILL GO POTTY AT ONE END OF THE CRATE AND SLEEP IN THE OTHER. THE AVERAGE ADULT BOXER IS 50-75 LBS AND A LARGE CRATE SHOULD BE FINE. THEN YOU WILL NEED:SAFE QUALITY TOYS LIKE KONGS-NYLABONES-GREENIES AND TUGS- NON TIP NON SKID FOOD AND WATER BOWLS-QUALITY FOOD THAT IS BREED AND AGE APPROPRIATE (TALK TO YOUR VET AND GET THE FOOD AND TREATS A FEW DAYS BEFORE PUP COMES HOME)-MORE TOYS-VARIOUS SIZES OF COLLARS (SMALL FOR AN 8 WEEK OLD PUPPY THEN A MEDIUM ONE THAT CAN ADJUST UP) LEASH-NAIL TRIMMERS-TOYS-TREATS FOR TRAINING,MILD SHAMPOO FOR PUPPIES AND DID I MENTION TOYS? MAKE SURE YOU HAVE FRONTLINE OR OTHER FLEA PREVENTATIVE ON HAND AND A QUALITY PET ODER AND STAIN REMOVER (LIKE NATURES MIRICLE)  TO CLEAN THE CARPETS AND HARD SURFACES BECAUSE AT FIRST THEY WILL HAVE ACCIDENTS (SEE ABOVE).

YOU CAN ALSO PURCHASE IF YOUR BUDGET ALLOWS: PET BED (OLD BLANKETS AND TOWELS DO FINE AND i DON'T RECOMMEND ANYTHING THEY CAN TEAR UP AND INGEST UNTIL THEY ARE OLDER- THEY DELIGHT IN SHREDDING THINGS - DONT TAKE THE CHANCE- A TOWEL IS GREAT FOR A VERY YOUNG PUPPY BUT IF THEY ARE ABLE TO TEAR UP A TOY AT 5 MTS THEY CAN TEAR UP AND INGEST BEDDING TOO. A LITTLE WHILE OF SLEEPING IN A BARE CRATE UNTIL THEY CAN SETTLE DOWN AND APPRECIATE A DOG BED IS BETTER THAN AN INTESTINAL BLOCKAGE...LOOK AT IT THIS WAY...REMEMBER WHEN YOU WERE A TEENAGER AND COULD "CRASH" ON ANY HORIZONAL SURFACE -AND SOME VERTICAL ONES..BUT AS YOU GET OLDER A SOFT BED HAS MERITS? WELL THATS THE MENTALITY FOR A YOUNG DOG)  DOGGIE CLOTHES-SOME PPL LIKE THEM SOME DON'T BUT YOU GOTTA ADMIT THEY DO LOOK COOL AS HECK-VARIOUS BLING AND A CAMERA CAUSE THEY WILL DO CUTE THINGS I PROMISE... AND BITTER YUCK SPRAY FOR ANYTHING YOU DON'T WANT THEM TO CHEW ON BUT THEY JUST CAN'T SEEM TO LEAVE ALONE.!

AFTER YOUR BANK ACCOUNT RECOVERS FROM THE ABOVE ITEMS START LOOKING FOR A QUALITY BREEDER.QUALITY BREEDERS PRODUCE QUALITY PUPPIES SO EXPECT TO PAY A BIT MORE,AS THE OLD ADAGE GOES:YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR.NOW IS NOT THE TIME TO BARGAIN SHOP FOR A $150 DOG. THIS IS THE MOST IMPORTANT THING YOU CAN DO FOR YOURSELF AND YOUR PUPPY.EVEN IF YOU HAVE TO TRAVEL A BIT FARTHER THAN YOU EXPECTED-EVEN IF YOU HAVE TO WAIT FOR AN UP AND COMING LITTER , A GOOD BREEDER IS SO VERY IMPORTANT BECAUSE EVEN THO ALL PUPPIES ARE CUTE NOT ALL PUPPIES ARE EQUAL. YOU ARE LOOKING AS A FULL BLOODED DOG FOR A REASON..PLAIN AND SIMPLE YOU WANT AND EXPECT THEM TO LOOK AND ACT A CERTAIN WAY..THE PICTURES THAT YOU USUALLY SEE IN BOOKS AND MAGAZINES..ON CALENDERS OF BREED SPECIFIC ISSUES..THOSE ARE USUALLY PRETTY WELL BRED DOGS THAT LOOK LIKE THEY SHOULD. TO FIND ONE YOU CAN:ASK A VET,ASK A FRIEND,ASK LOCAL BOARDING AND GROOMING FACILITIES, UTILIZE THE LOCAL PAPER OR INTERNET BUT AGAIN VISIT THAT BREEDER AND SEE THE PUPPIES AND PARENTS BEFORE YOU PURCHASE (SEE ABOVE). JUST BECAUSE A BREEDER CHARGES $1,000 FOR A PUPPY DOESN'T MEAN THAT IT IS A GOOD BREEDER OR A GOOD REPRESENTATION OF THE BREED. TAKE A PICTURE FROM THE INTERNET (THE AKC WEBSITE OR OTHER GOOD REFERENCE PLACE FOR THE CONFORMATION STANDARDS OF THE BREED. A FEW PICTURES OF DIFFEENT "SHOW CHAMPIONS" DON'T HURT EITHER)  WITH YOU OF YOUR CHOSEN BREED AND WHEN YOU SEE THOSE PARENTS- LOOK WITH A CRITICAL EYE NOT JUST AWWWWW HOW CUTE. THIS IS THE SECOND MOST IMPORTANT THING I CAN STRESS...ALTHOUGH THERE ARE NO "PERFECT" DOGS THE MOTHER AND FATHER SHOULD *******BOTH******* LOOK LIKE THAT PICTURE OF THAT SHOW DOG ENOUGH THAT THERE ARE NO BLARING FLAWS.I UNDERSTAND THAT MOST PEOPLE ARE NOT DOG SHOW JUDGES BUT IF THAT DOG JUST DOESN'T LOOK MUCH LIKE THE SHOW DOG THEN CHANCES ARE IT SHOULDN'T HAVE BEEN BRED AT ALL BECAUSE IT'S NOT A GOOD REPRESENTATION OF THE BREED. I'm NOT SPEAKING OF COLOR I'm TALKING STRUCTURE. MAKE SURE ***BOTH*** PARENTS ARE  THE SIZE AND SHAPE THAT THE DOGS OF THAT BREED ARE SUPPOSED TO BE (REMEMBER THERE ARE NO MINIATURES OR GIANTS IN THE BREED STANDARD OF A BOXER SO A 25 POUND "MINIATURE" BOXER IS BAD BUT SO IN MY OPINON IS A 120 POUND BOXER- THOSE ARE NOT MEDIUM SIZE DOGS BY ANY MEANS AND IT TAKES A BIG BIG DOG TO HIT OVER 100 POUNDS OR A VERY OBESE ONE AND NEITHER ARE BREED STANDARD.  EVEN IF YOU DON'T WANT TO SHOW OR BREED YOU WANT A QUALITY PET DON'T YOU? ONE THAT WILL GROW UP TO BE A BEAUTIFUL EXAMPLE OF THE CHOSEN BREED? THAT STARTS WITH CORRECT PARENTS AND GRANDPARENTS.ONE BEAUTIFUL FATHER AND ONE MEH OR FLAT OUT UGLY MOTHER? WELL THAT PUP MAY TAKE AFTER THE FATHER BUT MORE LIKELY IT WILL BE A COMBO OF BOTHER OR EVEN TAKE AFTER THE UGLY MOTHER BECAUSE 50% OF THAT PUPS GENETICS ARE HERS- SO REALLY BUYING A PUP FROM ONE UGLY PARENT AND ONE NICE PARENT YOUR ONLY GETTING A ONE IN FOUR CHANCE OF SOMETHING NICE..NOT GOOD ODDS (MY BROTHER IN LAW FOUND THAT LITTLE FACTOID OUT THE HARD WAY WHEN HE PAYED QUITE A BIT FOR AN ENGLISH BULLDOG-THE FATHER WAS VERY PRETTY -THE MOTHER..UGH POOR THING. AND YUP THAT PUP WHO STARTED OUT SOOOO CUTE LOOKS JUST LIKE MAMA AS AN ADULT AND COULD WIN AN UGLY DOG CONTEST. THEY WANTED HER TO LOOK LIKE HER DADDY-THAT WAS WHAT THEY BOUGHT HER FOR- HE WAS STRIKING AND THATS WHAT THE PUPS WERE SOLD OFF OF.. BUT THEY GOT A LESSON ON GENETICS THE HARD WAY) ARE THE PARENTS OF THE PUPPIES SOCIAL? DO THEY HAVE GOOD ATTITUDES TOWARDS YOU? IS THE WHOLE PREMISES CLEAN? THEY ARE DOGS, YES...THERE WILL BE POO..BUT NOT FILTH..CAN THE BREEDER PROVIDE REFERENCES? CAN THEY ANSWER ANY AND ALL QUESTIONS YOU HAVE ABOUT THE BREED  CHOSEN ,ARE THEY KNOWLEDGEABLE ABOUT THE ANIMALS THEY REPRODUCE ? WHAT ARE THE NEGATIVES OF THE BREED? EVERY BREED HAS THEM AND A GOOD BREEDER WILL BE UP FRONT WITH YOU. WHAT HEALTH ISSUES DOES THE BREED HAVE AND WHAT PROBLEMS HAS THE BREEDER RAN INTO. THERE IS NO BREEDER ON THE FACE OF THE EARTH THAT HAS BEEN BREEDING ANY LENGTH OF TIME AND HAS NEVER EVER EVER RAN INTO SOMETHING IN THEIR LINES.THERE ARE SO MANY THINGS THAT HAVE THE POTENTIAL TO GO WRONG WHEN BREEDING THE BREEDER SHOULD STRIVE THEIR BEST TO DO RIGHT, AGAIN THEY SHOULD BE HONEST WITH YOU.EXPECT A FEW QUESTIONS FROM THE BREEDER. REMEMBER THEY HAVE A TON OF TIME INVESTED IN THESE DOGS SO DON'T TAKE OFFENSE.THEN AND ONLY THEN IF YOU FEEL COMFORTABLE GO LOOK AT THOSE PUPS. FIRST OFF THE PUPPIES SHOULD BE IN A VERY CLEAN PLACE AND THEY THEMSELVES SHOULD PRETTY WELL BE SPOTLESS.THE ONLY EXCEPTION TO THIS RULE AROUND MY HOUSE IS AT 3-4 WEEKS WHEN FIRST LEARNING HOW TO EAT PUPPY GRUEL, THEY ARE QUITE MESSY DURING THE FEEDING , SLOBS REALLY.. BUT IF THE MAMA DOESN'T CLEAN THEM SPICK AND SPAN THE BREEDER SHOULD. NO STANDING NASTINESS NO OVERWHELMING POOP OR PEE SMELL. THEY SHOULD HAVE PLENTY OF ROOM TO PLAY OR AT LEAST ABLE TO GET OUTSIDE AND STRETCH.THEY SHOULD, AT  SIX WEEKS,  COME TO YOU AND EVEN THOUGH THEY HAVE THE ATTENTION SPAN OF A FLEA AT THAT AGE THEY SHOULD AT LEAST ACKNOWLEDGE YOU WITH A HAPPY TAIL.THEY SHOULD BE BOUNCY AND APPEAR WELL ADJUSTED AND LIKE ALL PUPPIES VERY NOSEY. IF THEY SHY AWAY FROM YOU WATCH AND SEE IF THEY WILL LATER TAKE INTEREST.DON'T PUSH, REMEMBER LIKE PEOPLE SOME PUPPIES ARE SOCIAL BUTTER FLYS AND SOME ARE OBSERVERS - SOMETIMES THE SUBMISSIVE PUPPIES HAVE BACKED OFF FROM THE MORE DOMINANT SIBLINGS AND ARE PATIENTLY WAITING FOR THEIR TURN.IT MIGHT LOOK LIKE THEY ARE STAND OFFISH BUT THEY HAVE FIGURED OUT BIG BROTHER WILL WIN IN A PUSHING MATCH SO PATIENCE IS A VIRTUE .IF THE WHOLE  LITTER NEVER WANTS TO INTERACT STEER CLEAR. PUPPIES SHOULD HAVE A SOFT SMOOTH COAT FREE OF BALDING THIN OR MOTH EATEN LOOKING FUR. THERE MAY BE LITTLE SCRATCHES OR NIP MARKS FROM BROTHERS AND SISTERS , THIS IS MORE THAN COMMON AS THOSE TEETH ARE SHARP SHARP SHARP- BUT  IS VASTLY DIFFERENT FROM DIGGING AT THEM SELVES DUE TO FLEAS OR EAR MITES , CRUSTY NASTY SKIN, BACTERIAL INFECTIONS ON THE SKIN FROM UNSANITARY SURROUNDINGS ETC  ETC. EYES SHOULD BE BRIGHT AND CLEAR WITH AN ALERT EXPRESSION.NO YELLOW GUMMY MATTER.NOSE CAN BE DRY OR MOIST BUT AGAIN NO YELLOW OR GREEN DISCHARGE.EARS SHOULD BE CLEAN CLEAN CLEAN.NO BLACK NASTY STUFF OR BLACK CRUMBLY STUFF. THERE SHOULD BE NO ODER NO REDNESS .MOUTH SHOULD BE PINK NOT PALE OR WHITE WITH SHARP WHITE LITTLE TEETH THAT LOOK TO BE IN GOOD SHAPE..NO RECEDING GUMS.BOXERS HAVE AN UNDER BITE BUT TEETH SHOULD NOT SHOW WHEN THE MOUTH IS CLOSED IN EITHER THE PUPPIES OR THE PARENT DOGS, THIS IS A NONO. SKIN SHOULD BE SMOOTH AND COAT SOFT AND SHINY (BOXERS HAVE A NICE PUG NOSE AND PLENTY OF WRINKLES WHEN THEY ARE A PUPPY)THEY SHOULD WALK WELL AND HAVE AS SMOOTH A GAIT AS A BOUNCY PUPPY CAN HAVE.LOOK AT THEIR BELLIES , THERE SHOULD BE NO LARGE "BUBBLES OR BUMPS" UNDER THE SKIN AT THE UMBILICAL OR GROIN AREA.IF THERE ARE THAT IS MOST LIKELY A HERNIA AND WILL REQUIRE REPAIR. THE BREEDER SHOULD GIVE A SMALL DISCOUNT ( I TAKE OFF $30 AS THAT IS WHAT MY VET WOULD CHARGE A PERSON TO FIX ONE WHEN UNDER FOR A SPAY) TO OFF SET THE ADDED COST.THERE SHOULD BE NO BUTT CRUSTINESS AROUND THE ANUS AS THIS IS A SIGN OF DIARRHEA, IN FACT ANY STOOL NEEDS TO LOOK PRETTY WELL FORMED NO PLOPPY COW PIES OR THE RUNS.   IN A MALE PUPPY MAKE SURE TESTICLES ARE BOTH DOWN AND EVIDENT IN THE SCROTUM.ALMOST 100% OF THE TIME A MALE PUPPY'S TESTES WILL BE DOWN BY 8 WEEKS.IF THEY ARE NOT GET SOMETHING IN WRITING FROM YOUR BREEDER SAYING THAT THEY WILL DROP BY 12 WEEKS.IF THEY AREN'T DOWN BY THEN THEY WONT DROP AND AGAIN A BREEDER NEEDS TO DISCOUNT THE COST OF THE PUPPY AS IT WILL COST MORE TO NEUTER AS THE VET WILL HAVE TO GO UP INTO THE ABDOMEN AND IT IS THEN CLOSER TO A SPAY (ON THE RARE OCCASION I HAVE A MONO OR CRYPTOORCHID DOG I DISCOUNT $50 AT PICK UP...I HAVE NEVER PERSONALLY DEEN A TESTICLE DROP AFTER 8 WEEKS IN ONE OF MY PUPPIES BUT I HAVE HEARD FROM SEVERAL WELL RESPECTED BREEDERS THAT THEY CAN SO I WILL NOT ARGUE WITH MY BETTERS ON THIS POINT). ASK WHAT TYPE OF GUARANTEE THE PUPPY HAS.A GOOD BREEDER WILL OFFER AT LEAST A YEAR FOR HEALTH ISSUES.THE PUPPIES SHOULD BE UP TO DATE FOR THEIR AGE WITH SHOTS AND WORMING. IF THOSE PUPPIES ARE NOT AT THE VERY LEAST 7 WEEKS OLD EVEN IF THEY ARE "WEANED FROM THEIR MOTHER" DO NOT DO NOT DO NOT TAKE THEM.IN THE STATE OF MISSOURI ACCORDING TO THE MISSOURI AGRICULTURE DEPARTMENT AND THE UNITED STATES DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE LEGALLY PUPPIES NEED TO BE 8 WEEKS OR OLDER BEFORE SOLD..... THEN ,IF EVERYTHING FEELS RIGHT AND YOU DON'T FEEL YOU HAVE BEEN PRESSURED INTO A "BUY NOW" TYPE OF THING IT IS UP TO YOU TO PICK YOUR NEW HAIRY CHILD! BREEDERS CAN ALSO GIVE INSIGHT ON THE PERSONALITIES OF SPECIFIC PUPPIES. IT IS THEIR JOB TO HELP YOU DECIDE THAT MAYBE THAT BALL OF FIRE THAT'S TEARING AROUND ROLLING HIS SIBLINGS WOULDN'T BE QUITE RIGHT FOR YOUR FAMILY SINCE YOU HAVE NEVER HAD A PUPPY BEFORE, THAT THE MORE SEDATE ONE HAPPILY LAYING ACROSS YOUR LAP MIGHT BE A  BETTER MATCH ETC. LISTEN TO THE TIPS OF THE BREEDER THEY HAVE BEEN WITH THESE DOGS THEIR WHOLE LIFE AND IF A BREEDER FLAT REFUSES TO SELL YOUR FAMILY AFTER GETTING TO KNOW YOU, FEELING OUT YOUR EXPERIENCE LEVEL ETC, A CERTAIN PUPPY DON'T TAKE OFFENSE. THAT LITTLE DOMINANT HELL CHILD ALTHOUGH "PERFECT" IN LOOKS, MIGHT BE PERFECT FOR SOME FOLKS BUT A NIGHTMARE FOR YOU...GOOD LUCK!!!!!
