While we wait for DeeDee to come into heat and be bred, we are pleased to announce that Marney, Molly and Ella have all been bred over the last two weeks. Though Mother Nature could dash our hopes for a pregnancy or move the following dates one week in either direction, we wanted to share tentative Delivery, Puppy Pick and Puppy Pickup dates with you as we currently project them:
Marney: Delivery Date is October 31 - Puppy Pick Weekend Dec 5-6 - Puppy Pickup Weekend Dec 26-27
Molly: Delivery Date is November 2 - Puppy Pick Weekend Dec 12-13 - Puppy Pickup Weekend Jan 2-3
Ella: Delivery Date is November 7 - Puppy Pick Weekend Dec 12-13 - Puppy Pickup Weekend Jan 2-3
Once DeeDee has been bred, we will publish her litter schedule as well.
Our Order & Selection Process
We have used the current process for selecting a puppy for the last several years and our clients have been very satisfied with the results. Here this the puppy selection process.Since most of our litters have been sold out before the puppies are born, it is a good idea to reserve your puppy as far in advance as possible.
Reserving a puppy is as simple as sending a deposit check for $250.00. Make out the check to "Rufo PHG Corp." and send it to our kennel at 41 Gates Farm Road in Lebanon, CT 06249. Please include your name, address, phone and email details along with the name of the Mother of litter you would like a puppy from. Once we receive your check, we will send you a receipt with your priority selection number. Please note that all deposits are non-refundable but may be applied to any future litter.
We will keep everyone informed of the entire process, from breeding week, through pregnancy, delivery and the first eight weeks of life. We publish a litter picture within a day of birth, and then we provide weekly updates with pictures beginning at three weeks of age, when the puppies are identified individually by their microchip number.
On week five, we hold "Puppy Pick Weekend" where we invite all the owners to our home to select their puppy. The person placing the first deposit will come first and have their choice of all the puppies in the litter. The person placing the second deposit will choose second, and so on.
On week eight, all the owners are invited back again to pick up their puppies to take home. It is a happy day indeed !
