"Young Adults Available..."
Each year we get several requests for older puppies, young adults or retirees that we
have available for sale/placement. These are typically dogs between ONE
and SIX years of age that at one point were either "pick" puppies from
litters planned here at Carriage Hill, or are older dogs who have been
shown and bred and are ready to retire and be your loving companion.
We understand that finding the right fit with an older dog is VERY
IMPORTANT. Temperment is KEY. With this in mind, we place all our
adult dogs on a two week trial and where possible (geographically) we
conduct a "home visit" at the end of the two week period to ensure
both dog and new owner are completely satisfied. We have sucessfully
placed many young adults and older dogs using this process over the
last 20 years.
Keep in mind that young adults and older dogs each have unique personalities which may
be well suited to a given family. Although we welcome phone/email inquiries, we strongly
encourage families to visit to meet the dogs in person.
If you are considering a young adult or older dog for your family, take a look
at what we currently have available. This list can and does change frequently, so if
you see a dog which interests you, please call us for more information or to schedule a visit.
We have two girls (a chocolate and a black) that are now retired from the show ring and breeding
that we are looking to place in their retirement homes. These girls have all final clearances
and are already spayed. Please contact us for details and to schedule a time to meet us and them.
