Grease Litter

BORN & FULLY ADOPTED

Last Updated:

December 30, 2023 at 2:09:43 AM


Why did we named it "The Grease Litter"

“Grease” is one of my favorite movies of all times - Even today, Grease remains a cultural sensation that resonated with youth across the world. Everyone wanted John Travolta's swagger, men wanted their hair greased back in the style of the 70s, leather pants became the rage, the songs were young and fun, and love was the most popular emotion.

*What comes with your puppy?*

Your puppy will have AKC Registration prepaid and completed by the breeder after the puppy goes home.

Microchipped with lifetime subscription prepaid, enrollment also completed by breeder. 

Puppy Starter package that contains Blanket, Toy, Leash and Collar, Food, treats/chews, waste bags, training pads etc. (subject to availability) 

Choosing a Puppy:

When the new puppies are  5-6  weeks of age or older, and only after DNA tests are completed (if applicable), you will be invited to visit our kennel home to meet them and choose the one to be become part of your family. 

While we prefer every prospect puppy owner to personally meet the puppies before choosing and making a commitment, in the given case you are unable to visit, we will provide you with as much information as we are able to (weight and size, pictures, videos etc) in order to help you choose. 

There is not an specific order to choose the pups. Based on our evaluation of each, we will do our best to give each Puppy Parent as many options as possible, taking into account each person/family's preferences (Color, Gender, Size) and lifestyle. 

Once you have chosen your puppy, you are welcome to visit, as many times as you wish, to personally follow up on your little one's development. 

At 4 weeks of age, we should be able to identify the pups that are deaf bilaterally. However, unilateral deafness (Only an ear good) can only be determined at the BAER test, which will be scheduled any time between the 6th to 8th weeks of age. In the given case that your chosen puppy happens to be affected and  you decide against keeping it, your deposit shall be refunded immediately. 

IMPORTANT:

We, as The Breeders, reserve the right to have the first pick of any litter.

Breeders and Co-breeders may set aside/hold longer one or more puppies for further evaluations.

08/04/2023 - Pink collar is officially over a pound of weight. While she still the smallest in her litter, I am very happy with her development. 

08/06/2023 - Two weeks of age, first deworming completed, weights recorded. Puppies are starting to walk. Their eyes are opening - It will take about a couple of more weeks to know for sure what color are their eyes.

08/08/2012 - Nails trimmed.

08/13/2023 - 3 weeks of age. All the puppies have now their eyes fully open and are walking, are starting to bark and playing with each other. Only one of the puppies have a blue eye, the orange collar. They all seem to respond to noises, so I am certain, none of them are deaf bilaterally. However, unilateral deafness is also common and can only be determined at the hearing test (BAER Test), which will be completed next month.

The pink collar still very tiny compared to her littermates. She continues to develop at her own very rate (a bit slower but acceptable, considering she is the runt).

This coming week, we will attempt to get them started on solid food, which for now consist in a blend of puppy formula, kibble and pumpkin puree.

08/20/2023 – First vet visit completed (House Call); deworming med administered. All puppies seem healthy and growing. Pink Collar has made a tremendous progress. She is active and feisty.

Black Collar (male) is sick, he has some fever, looks like a flu. Vet prescribed antibiotics and we will keep him isolated for now. He has appetite but is not holding down the food.

08/21/2023 – Both litters are out of the whelping boxes and roaming free in the pen. Going forward, all new pictures and videos (both litters together) will be uploaded in a new Google Album (link bellow)

08/22/23 – Black Collar is better. No more fever. Seems more alert and playful. Continues in isolation but is eating now and holding food down.

08/24/2023 – Black collar is back in the crowd. He missed some growing while sick, but I am sure he will catch up soon. He stole the “runt crown” from Pink!

08/25/2023 - Shoutout sent via email to all new puppy owners.

09/05/2023 - BAER Test has been completed. All puppies have normal hearing in both ears (Yayyyy!!) Hearing Test Reports bellow
