Meet Hot Cocoa. From our Christmas litter. Cocoa is a warm chocolate color. He has some white on his chest and white toes on his hind legs. He is a playful and loving pup. He does like to cuddle. Cocoa would be a great Christmas gift to yourself or loved one. The gift that will keep giving joy for every day for years to come!
Cocoa is AKC registered and he is Standard sized. His mom is a black and white Parti that weighs 70 lbs and his dad is a red that weighs 60 lbs so expect Cocoa to be in that range as an adult. Cocoa has had his tail docked and dewclaws removed.
Cocoa has been microchipped.
Cocoa’s parents have been genetically tested. In genetic testing a lab checks the dog’s DNA to see if they are carriers of or affected by over 160 genetic issues and disease. His parents are clear from any of them. This health screening is an important thing to consider when choosing a puppy. I own the parents and they are here for you to visit with.
Cocoa went to the vet's on the December 5th . He had a very through exam by the vet. The vet gave him the first set of vaccinations and did a fecal test. The fecal test showed he is negative for any internal parasites. The vet found him to be a healthy pup and she issued a Florida state Health Certificate.
My pups come with a 2 year health guarantee.
Cocoa has been fed real food. Real meat and veggies. After much research, I am no longer confident that the dry dog kibble is healthy for my dogs and puppies. If you would like to continue feeding Cocoa the raw foods I am more than happy to help get you started and coach any time you need it. There are other foods out there that would be better than the kibble such as a freeze dried or dehydrated food. I find I can feed my dogs cheaper by buying the real food and mixing it myself.
I take the health of my puppies very serious. You make a monetary investment with the purchase of a puppy but more importantly is the emotional investment you will make in adding a furbaby to your family. I am doing my best to see that my pups get a great start to help them live a lonnng healthy life.
Holding deposit is $200. and I don’t hold a puppy without a deposit.
I do ship and the puppies shipping charge is $425.
PLEASE NOTE VERY IMPORTANT! Not all states require a very through “Official Certificate of Veterinary Inspection”. The state of Florida does. You can google and see what states require and which do not. Even if not required by state law a responsible breeder, who really cares about their puppies, and wants to be sure they are selling a family a healthy puppy will have the exam done by the vet and be able to prove it is a healthy puppy. DO NOT BUY A PUPPY from any breeder who isn’t willing to provide one! For the through “Official Health Certificate of Veterinary Inspection” a vet preforms a very thorough exam. Eyes, teeth, mouth, ears, lungs, heart, weight, temperature, and overall appearance of puppy. Does the puppy have a good coat? Is it underweight? Is it lethargic? How are the gums? You get the idea. Then there is a fecal float done to check for any internal parasites. Only puppies negative for internal parasites will pass the exam. Then the vet will give the vaccinations and worm the puppy. (yes, even if the puppy is negative for worms). Once the vet is done with the inspection they will issue the Official Certificate Health Veterinary Inspection In effect they are saying to the best of their knowledge the puppy is healthy and they STAND BEHIND IT. They can be sued right along with the breeder if there is a health issue that they didn’t pick up on.
In the states that do not require the Official Health Certificate, in order to fly a puppy to it’s new family the airline requires a “Certificate of Veterinary Inspection”. The Veterinary Inspection only requires that the vet look over the puppy and deem it healthy enough to fly. HUGE DIFFERENCE. They are not required to check for worms, preform a physical or give any vaccinations or worming. I am trying to educate any buyers so you make the best possible decision that you can with the facts that will help. Whether you buy a puppy from me or not. I did not know the difference and bought a Standard Poodle puppy with only the “Veterinary Inspection” to fly. She was extremely underweight, had worms and was very lethargic. She was so starved she would eat her own poop. We were able to save her but had extra expenses we weren’t planning on and the emotional stress was hard.
Our puppies also come with a their own puppy package that has instructions on feeding, vaccinations, microchip information and a host of other great information on puppies and dogs. My goal is to make buying a puppy from our family a wonderful experience to the new families. Providing a new family member that will bring them lots of joy and love.
