Why did we name it " The Harriet Litter"?

Harriet Tubman Day is celebrated on March 10 every year and March 10th is the date in which puppies are expected to be born. If you’ve never heard of Harriet Tubman, she was a former slave who fought tirelessly to free other slaves by assisting them in fleeing their captors. Tubman is celebrated all around the United States, especially in Maryland and New York, two states, which held great significance in her life. She is most commonly known for the underground railroad which refers to the network of safe houses she used to help slaves escape. Harriet Tubman Day is a day to remember the heroic actions of this great woman and honor her work by fighting racism wherever you see it. Learn more about the history and importance...

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 (if applicable) and Hearing tests are completed, 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 evaluation to determine potential.

Delivery and Pick Up

Based on our past personal experiences, we do not use outside transportation companies to deliver puppies. All puppies must be picked up in person OR arrangements can be made for us to personally take the puppy to you, for an additional fee, which will include transportation and lodging expenses as applicable. This service is subject to our availability and is ONLY available to the new puppy owners that live out of state.
