Are your dogs fully vetted?

Yes! We work to ensure that our pups are given a clean bill of health before adoption. If your dog has a life-long condition, it will be noted in their bio.

If the dog I adopted is not as described can I return it?

Adoption is a lifetime commitment, and we kindly ask to consider that commitment before giving up on your pup, or even adopting! Every dog is unique in their experience, and we cannot know every aspect of their life. It can take up to 3 months for your dog to start becoming completely comfortable in their new home, and behavioral issues can arise that weren't apparent before because the dog has been under severe stress. If this does happen, we are here to help! We can recommend methods, trainers, and behaviorists, that can help!

That said, if you have decided that your dog is not the right fit for your family, we absolutely require you bring the dog back to us.
