Breeding is a costly venture and not something we do for profit but because we are very passionate about the breed and breeding healthy dogs. Not a lot of people will understand the amount of $$$ that go into preparing and going ahead with a mating. From health testing hip/elbow xrays, heart ultrasound, DNA testing for testable inherited diseases, progesterone testing to determine the best time for mating or insemination, pre-mate swab, artificial insemination weather that is by standing AI, TCI or surgical AI, these are all big costs before we even know if the breeding was successful.
Unfortunately with 4 misses this year, breathtakingly, we financially likely will not be able to continue. We have poured our hearts, souls and many tears into this wonderful journey since we started in 2010.
Lilly will be desexed and has a wonderful home lined up with her brother Dogue. That will leave us with Billie, Luxie & Mica. We will attempt to breed these girls however if these are unsuccessful, that will be the end of our breeding journey… not forever hopefully, but certainly for a while, so we can recover and get back on our feet again.
Love to all
Brooke, Jarrad, Riva & Grace
