“Adopting an adult saves going through the puppy stage!” Think again……….

Maybe? But adopting an adult and removing them from all they’ve ever known to a new environment and a new way of life comes with its own challenges. We DO NOT adopt our adults to anyone that just thinks “it will be easier”. It’s not. You must have patience, compassion, tons of love and the ability to build trust and security for your new “adult”. The experience for them is like being the “new kid on the block”, changing schools and trying to make new friends. When a child leaves a school system, especially in mid-school year, to move to a new neighborhood, city or state, they do not “adjust” immediately. For many the experience can be very traumatic. Think of your new canine adoption in the same way….and help them adjust to be a wonderful asset of unconditional love for your family. If you are not up for the challenge of raising a puppy, you may not be up to the challenge of adopting an adult either. Please think it through and evaluate your lifestyle before contacting us to consider one of our adult adoptions. Email below.

All of our girls are spayed before leaving for their new homes.

We will not ship our adult dogs. We no longer ship our puppies, unless traveling in cabin with their new owners. Please keep in mind our location when considering adopting one of our adults. If they need to return to us, we do not want it being too difficult for any involved. We may be willing to meet you at a half-way point as well, depending on your location.

Thank you for considering making one of our adults a part of your family. God Bless!


We have an awesome boy, our beloved Geno, who is looking for a “senior” retirement home. He is as spunky and friendly as he always has been. We retained his son for our program, so it is time to see Geno off to a loving family for his remaining years. DOB 8/19/2012 ADOPTED!!!

 Above is our gorgeous Sheba, purebred Great Pyrenees. DOB 8/2/2016. She was raised in our home for her first 2 years and is housebroken. She must be an ONLY DOG! She is not fond of other dogs in her “territory”. She is an absolutely beautiful  loyal and loving dog for the right family. Fenced in yard is mandatory. GP’s like to wander. It’s their nature.


And our Beautiful Newfoundland girl, BLACKIE below. (not in the mood for pictures take 6/8/2021, LOL! She is sweet and affectionate (one of my challenges for taking a photo as she wanted to be right up close to me) and will make a great companion. Would love a home where she will have access to play in the water.

DOB 4/17/16

Our Sweet Peanut, DOB 3/7/18, Great Mountainees (a term I coined for the cross between a Bernese Mountain Dog and Great Pyrenees), is spayed and ready for her new home. She is very sweet. She adapted quite well to her first attempt at a retirement home and was loved by all. Unfortunately, one of the family members developed severe allergies to her coat. She is a shedding dog, as our others listed above (except Geno) ADOPTED!!!
