Guardian homes are families that are willing to be in a partnership with us as breeders for the time that the dog is used in our breeding program. On occasion we have a male or female pup that we are wanting to use for our breeding program, but we like to limit the number of dogs at our home so we make sure we have plenty of love and time for each puppy and dog in our home. This gives a special 'approved someone' a free puppy to love and take care of as their own. We, the breeders, will pay for all the proper health tests to be done before breeding's take place. The guardian family is responsible for proper food, vet, exercise and loving this dog for it's lifetime. Once the dog is ready to retire from our breeding program, we will pay to have him/her spay or neutered. Also, as a thank you, when a female has a litter (a litter constitutes 4 or more live puppies), we will give you $400, and with the studs, $200 per successful breeding. Generally, a guardian family needs to live within an hour of Bozeman, MT, and live in the country or have a safely fenced yard. Please contact me if you are interested in becoming a Guardian, and I will get you the contract and more specifics.
