We are placing our daughter's last available puppy for her. We were holding him waiting for a deposit,
but the person apparently changed their mind and stopped responding. So he is available again!
He was born April 14th. Will be ready June 15th/16th
Black&Tan Longhair Male. He will look like his Mother, Dixie.
His sire is our boy Hunter.
$650 as Pet/No Papers (Both parents ARE fully AKC Registered)

Penelope & Hunter's Litter Born on  May 10th! (all are Longhair)
1 Chocolate&Tan Male Tuxedo Piebald  is AVAILABLE...
(1 Chocolate&tan Tux Piebald Male and Chocolate&Tan dapple Female and Black&Tan Female are Deposits Pending/ON HOLD!)
Male $650 (No Papers) 
(I won't AKC register this litter since the puppies are going to Pet homes.)

We MIGHT have a Smooth & Longhair Puppy Litter Due about June 18
More information available after pregnancy is confirmed.
Puppies will be cream and possibly light red, in solid and Tuxedo Piebald. 

If you are interested in a puppy PLEASE READ " Instructions" and " Information" at the BOTTOM of the page. Common questions will be answered there.
Please take the time to READ the below information.
(I actually suggest going to ALL the pages on this site and reading the info we have provided about your puppy and our program.)


Pet Puppies Start at $650 male / $700 female.
Some patterns or colors may be priced differently.
Prices are Not Negotiable.
"Pet" Puppies Do NOT  automatically come with AKC PAPERS**
AKC sent me a report  showing that only 1/3 of pet owners actually sent in the applications that I ordered!**Therefore, if you want AKC "Limited Registration," you need to let me know when you RESERVE your puppy, so I can order the registration from AKC. I do not charge extra for pet papers for a puppy coming from a litter I am registering, but AKC will charge YOU $30 to process.
I only register the litters that include puppies sold with FULL AKC,
so not every litter will be registered!
**The PET PRICE is a REDUCED PRICE in order to help you
with the cost of the recommended spaying or neutering.**   
**Full AKC (Breeder) Registration is  $800 Male/$850 Female**

(Sometimes slightly more for some Bloodlines or Patterns)
 Not all puppies will be eligible for FULL AKC. All of our puppies will be great pets, but not all should be bred.

We want to ensure that only desirable characteristics
are passed on to future puppies. Approved Breeders, including Benderdachs, get priority choice when picking puppies.
  A  Non-Refundable Holding Deposit of $200 will reserve
your puppy until it is ready to go to your home. The Holding Deposit is deducted from the price of the puppy when you pick it up.

Once you place a deposit on your puppy, updated pictures
will be sent to you every week.

Deliveries to Billings, Hardin or Custer MT are FREE.
Due to gas prices and the time it takes, we charge $50 to deliver to
THESE cities IF our schedule & weather allow us to travel:
Livingston~  Miles City~  Cody, WY~
Harlowton(For people near Great Falls)~ Sheridan, WY~

All Puppies will have been vet checked and had their first vaccination administerd by our Veterinarian. We give regular De-Worming treatments. Puppies will come with a gift bag that includes a container of food, a blanket, bowls and toys. Puppies come with a 12 month Replacement Warranty for Fatal/Terminal Hereditary and Congenital Defects.
Please read if you are considering a puppy from us!
Size "estimate" is based on size of the parents, it is not a Guarantee!
Our puppies usually grow to be 10-14 pounds as adults.  

PLEASE: Make sure your SPOUSE and LANDLORD are okay with getting a puppy BEFORE you inquire. AFTER the Wish List opens, you can get on it by sending an email to [email protected] , and telling me about yourself and your household (family members and other pets, usual activities  etc) and what color/sex you prefer.)  THIS IS IMPORTANT!
I do not have a formal questionnaire, but I do need to know that your home will be a good fit for one of our puppies!  The email is your introduction to me, and I use it to help me choose the ORDER of Pick. I will post on this site and on the Facebook page the exact date that the Wish List will open.
Mixed Coat litters will take 1 to 3 weeks to determine if Smooth, Long or Wire.
I  Do Not/Will Not keep your contact info before the Wish List opens! 
I WORK FULL TIME,  Email or Text is the best way to reach me!

When it's time to Pick puppies, I contact people on the Wish List (in the order I choose) and send pictures of available pups. Once you select your puppy, I will email the contract. You then have ONLY 2 BUSINESS DAYS to mail the deposit , or the puppy could be offered to the next person!   
*** We No Longer allow PICK-UP's at our home, due to recent Parvo Outbreaks at TWO breeder friend's homes! (Spring 2019)  Please see the PLEASE READ tab for pictures of our home.
Or $50 to the cities listed in the INFORMATION box on this page. 
The Non-Refundable* Holding Deposit to reserve a puppy is $200.
It is deducted from the price of the puppy. The balance is due at puppy transfer, which will be when it is 8-9 weeks old. *The Deposit is Refundable only IF something were to happen to the pup while still in my care*
Deposits may be paid by Post Office Money Order(Preferred) or Wal-Mart Money Order only.  CASH ONLY at pick-up/delivery please.
Sorry! NO Personal Checks are accepted under any circumstance. 

Please understand that we are small breeders. Sometimes we don't have enough puppies to go around. Please do not feel bad if you do not get offered a pup the first time you apply. You may apply again, if you're still looking for the perfct puppy.  We don't keep/carry over contact infomation to other litters.  You must apply again each litter.
