Currently, I do not have any puppies available. I do have litters due in May and June. The VIP List is open and you can call to complete the phone interview.
My sister does have one litter of French Bulldog puppies that are sired by Thurston and who are 4 weeks old now. There are 2 light fawn girls available. They are $3500 each and you may contact Stephanie after 5 pm (central) at 815-501-2658. She can email pictures to you.
Buyer Beware: Internet fraud happens all the time and real businesses and consumers have no way to stop it. Please be smart! If a French Bulldog puppy is listed for less than $1500 and the seller claims that the puppy is in perfect health, it is fraud. If the sellers will not talk to you, only email or text, it is fraud. If they will not allow you to come see the puppy or meet you with the puppy somewhere, it is fraud. Many times there is no actual puppy, the seller has simply used a picture of a puppy they do not own or have. When the sale price is $500-$800 for a French or an English Bulldog , THIS IS FRAUD. No one will sell a healthy French or English Bulldog puppy for this, they just take too much time and effort to raise. However, fraud (theft) of $500 is not a federal offense and you, the consumer, will usually walk away. And the crook will get away with your money. Stop and think about this, if they scam one person a day out of $500, they will make over $182,000/yr. Be a smart consumer and puppy buyer. If you think it might be fraud, google search that image. If they have copied the image from a real breeder, you will find the real puppy and breeder.
Open **NEW** VIP List **New**
This service is a limited list and only meant for individuals or families that intend to purchase a puppy within 6 months from me. Once you are placed on the VIP List, you will be given priority notice of my newest arrivals and will be the first to see photos of the newborns, usually at two weeks of age. Many puppies will never be listed on my website and you will have the first opportunity to choose your own. The VIP List ensures that I am dedicating my time to serious buyers and allows you to lock in your personal request for one of my quality puppies. Before you are placed on the VIP Waiting List, you will need to complete the phone interview with me. You will also be required to send a deposit of $500 to hold your spot on the list. The deposit will be applied to the purchase price of the puppy. Deposits are taken in good faith and are non-refundable, so please be certain that you are committed to purchasing a puppy from me. As families or individuals receive their puppies, the list will be open for enrollment again.
Call me at 417-543-4246 to start your enrollment.
The best times to call me are Monday through Saturday, between 10 am-4 pm (central). Sundays are usually reserved for my family and catching up.
My puppies normally run between $3000-$4200 for pet homes with limited AKC registration, depending on the color, sex, pedigree, and the conformation of that puppy. Most of my puppies are Champion sired and most of my moms are also Champion sired. You are getting a fine example of the breed.
If you are looking for a puppy with show or breeding rights, full AKC registration will be an additional $1000. I will work with you on what you are looking for. I will only give full registration to puppies that meet my criteria.
***If you are interested in a puppy, call me at 417-543-4246. If litters are due, I can be hard to get through to because I may have been up all night with puppies. So if you don't hear back from me within 24 hrs, just email me with your name, number, when is best for me to contact you, and which puppy or litter you are interested in. Thanks!***
When you buy a puppy from me:
You will get a puppy that has been seen by our veterinarian at least three times. The first time will be when the pup is born, due to the fact that most Frenchies are born by c-section. The second time will be between 4-5 weeks of age, when we look to see if there is anything that we missed during the first vet check. The third visit will be between 7-8 weeks of age, when the puppy will be ready to go home. If the puppy has been purchased already, it will get a vet check and a health certificate at the end of this visit. The health certificate is required for any public transportation and I like to give them regardless as a means of establishing a baseline of health for that particular puppy. My puppies are given their shots and wormings at 5 & 7 weeks. I use NeoPar and NeoVac DA2 Vaccines for Distemper, Parainfluenza & Parvovirus . I usually give Canine Parainfluenza-Bordetella Brochiseptica Bacterin Vaccines (Bronchicine CAe) at seven and a half weeks, for kennel cough if the puppy is traveling by plane. Sometimes puppies do develop a runny nose or a slight cough from this vaccine, however it does give some protection from upper respiratory disorders while the puppy is traveling to your home. At 5-6 weeks of age, all of my puppies are microchipped. The microchip number will be placed on that puppy's AKC registration papers. When I send in your AKC registration papers, AKC also has a recovery program for the microchip number. You will have to keep your contact information up-to-date with AKC. All of my puppies are started on potty and crate training. They will not be perfect, however as soon as they are capable to walk outside on their own, they are encouraged to potty outside. They are also kept in a large crate at night so that when they go home, the transition will be easier. I am a firm believer in crate training. This is a means of keeping your puppy safe when you cannot be there, not a form of punishment. It also assists in the potty training due to the fact that most puppies do not want to potty where they sleep. As long as you set and keep a consistent potty and exercise routine, your Frenchie should do just fine. I like to teach basic obedience commands to my puppies, usually starting around 6 weeks of age. However, I no longer have the time to work with my puppies consistently anymore. I do send home a list of commands and instructions for you to start training at home. I only use positive reinforcement and so, my puppies learn the POWER OF CHEESE! I teach "sit", "stand", "here", "kennel up", "out", and "okay" (this is a release). I also work on the command "down" (as in "lay down", I use "off" for when a puppy is jumping on someone). "Down" is one of the hardest commands for a small dog to learn. I strongly encourage puppy owners to take their puppies to basic obedience classes. Puppy classes are great to socialize your puppy with other dogs and people, and are meant for puppies under 4 months of age, who do not have all of their vaccinations. (Please remember that until your puppy is fully vaccinated, your puppy is not immune to the many diseases that he or she will be likely exposed to. Be cautious about letting your puppy go to pet stores or dog parks until they have had all of their shots. Many contagious diseases can be spread during these visits.) Beginner obedience classes are for puppies and dogs that are over four months of age and you should only take your puppy to these when they are fully vaccinated, including rabies. ***Please note- if you decide that one of my puppies is the right one for you, you will be required to make a non-refundable $500 deposit. When I receive your deposit, I will mark your puppy on hold. I will no longer advertise that puppy and we will start to make travel/delivery arrangements for that puppy. If your circumstances change and you can no longer buy a puppy from me, and you have paid more than the deposit, I will return all funds except the $500 deposit. You may use your deposit on another puppy as long as you purchase the second puppy within a year. When it is time for your puppy to go home you will be given: a sample of our puppy food, your puppy's AKC & microchip registration papers, a copy of all health records, a health certificate, a health guarantee in the form of a signed Sales Contract, and a written guide to basic obedience training for your puppy. Obviously, until the puppy is paid for in full, the puppy will not be able to be taken home. All transportation fees are in addition to the purchase price of the puppy and arrangements will be made according to needs.
PLEASE Note: I have the right to refuse to sell a puppy to anyone, for any reason. I try to collect as much information about you and to give as much information about my puppies as is possible, so that there are no misunderstandings about what you are getting. However, there have been times that I have felt that the person purchasing one of my puppies has been untruthful or misrepresented their situation. When that occurs, I will refuse to continue with the sale of the puppy, and return all funds but the deposit to that person. I only have a small window of contact to collect information about you and your family and I am trusting that you are as honest as I am. I try to make sure that my puppies are placed in the best homes, with families that can afford to take care of any health issues that come with owning a French Bulldog.
Delivery of Your Puppy:
1) You pick up your puppy. I am willing to meet you as long as I don't have to drive more than two hours from my home to our meeting point. Or you are welcome to come directly to my home and kennel. Sometimes, I can take the puppy farther. Just call.
2) Sorry, cargo flights are no longer available due to the new APHIS(USDA) rules. I am not USDA licensed and until I see much more positive license inspections from USDA, I will not be USDA licensed. USDA has stated that the new rules are there to protect the buyer from sick puppies that are shipped sight-unseen to the buyer through cargo flights. However, that really makes no sense since any puppy that is flown must have a current health certificate from a licensed veterinarian. This instead seems to be a means of collecting more fees and over-regulating.
3) You can fly with your puppy as carry-on baggage. This is the most expensive means of travel but is the safest form of airline traveling. Your puppy will be in the cabin and therefore will not be exposed to excessive heat or cold. There are no restrictions on French Bulldogs inside the cabin as long as they fly as carry-on baggage. And this means that your Frenchie can be flown at any time of the year, regardless of weather restrictions. There is a charge (one-way) for the puppy, ranging from $75-$125, depending on the airline. If this option interests you, I will deliver the puppy to the
Springfield/Branson Regional Airport in Springfield, MO or the Branson Airport in Branson, MO. You will need
to have about one hour between arrival and departure flights to have enough time to go over all the paperwork
for your puppy and for me to introduce you to your new bouncing baby. And when you arrive at home, please
let me know that you arrived safely!!! 4) If you have any questions, give me a call at 417-543-4246.
