Our purpose here at Lena's Mini Doxies is to PRESERVE BLOODLINES and producing healthy well-socialized puppies. We give careful consideration to health issues, temperament and genetic screening. We offer some puppies that do not meet our standard to continue in our breeding program to loving homes. We also offer puppies to other quality breeders in order to help in maintaining our bloodlines.
All adoptions will be done face-to-face. If you can not pick up your puppy personally or if you need your puppy shipped and you personally can not meet your puppy first, you will need to have an agent or a proxy in order to receive your puppy (due to USDA regulations). Please contact me and I will happily go over this process with you.
I have had several people ask me why our prices are higher than the puppies advertised in local papers. We do not advertise in the paper. We think there are too many puppies being advertised there by back yard breeders and puppy mills. We have gone to great lengths and cost to hand pick our breeding stock to produce quality puppies to help in preserving our bloodlines. We only breed healthy quality dogs. We feed a very high quality dog food (Orijen), healthy treats and keep all of our dogs up to date on their vaccinations, veterinary visits, bathed/groomed & nails done. All of our dogs live in the home with us and all puppies are born in our home with us supervising and there to imprint each puppy as they are welcomed into the world. The pups are handled daily and are well socialized. They are wormed every two weeks from birth with Pyrantel 50 or Panacur, have their first set of vaccinations and health examine before going to their new family. We work very hard at starting the process of crate and house training. We also update the new families with new pictures weekly until they go to their new homes. When you receive your puppy they will be freshly bathed with Spa shampoo and smelling wonderful. They will also be flea and worm free, happy and healthy. We also are proud of the "puppy pack" that we put together for each of the puppies. It is designed with food by "Acana", Starter packet of "NuVet" Vitamins (please order vitamins before receiving your puppy), toy, health record from birth, tons of information, business card and a health guarantee/contract. We stand behind our puppies 100% and welcome comments. We also offer references. So please know the sky is the limit as to what we do to provide you with the "best" new friend. We want you to be able to spend time and money enjoying spoiling and bonding with your new puppy and not spending those precious puppy days in the vet office with a sick puppy and large veterinary bills. So, this is why our puppies cost a little more than advertised puppies in the paper. Remember the ole sayin ...."You get what you pay for".
