Paige is a wonderful, 5 month old Labradane (3/4 Dane, 1/4 Lab) who came to BDHP with her sisters. They were all very sick upon arrival with worms, coccidia and giardia but they've seen their doctor, taken their meds and now they're happy, healthy pups! Paige has an adorable white blaze on her chest and cute little white markings on the back of each foot. She is mostly potty trained, great on leash, crate trained, and already a quick study with basic training. She loves other dogs and wants to play with the cat in her foster home. Paige adores attention from adults and kids alike and is ready for her forever family!
BDHPI Puppy Policy
All puppies less than 6 months of age are too young to be spayed/neutered so they are adopted out on special puppy spay/neuter agreements with a $50 refundable spay/neuter deposit. Adopting families must agree to get the puppy altered within 2 weeks of 6 months of age and send proof of S/N to BDHPI accordingly. Adopting families are expected to make a donation of $425 minimum for mixed puppies AND will have the additional costs listed above, so please keep this in mind.
When adopting a puppy, new families need to be prepared for not only a substantial financial investment, but also a significant time commitment in order to raise your puppy properly. Crate training is a critical part of setting them up for success as well as potty training. You can't leave a puppy in the crate for longer than 4 hours max and they typically have to be let outside every hour when you are home since their bladder is not as big as an adult. You will want to make sure your puppy gets regular exercise and has plenty of mentally stimulating chew toys such as puzzle toys(food cubes, busy buddy toys, kongs, etc). Socialization the first 6 months is critical to their development socially and once they have had all of their shots, you will want to take your new puppy everywhere you can to get them used to meeting lots of new people, different dogs, and visiting places outside of the home. Obedience training is also extremely important (and actually part of our adoption agreement requirements) so that your puppy grows up to be a gentle giant instead of a giant monster!
