How to Adopt your Bloodhound Puppy
"If you think dogs can't
count, try putting three dog biscuits in your pocket and
then give him only two of them."
Congratulations! Please follow these steps to reserve your puppy and to help prepare for your new pet!
Know that you are ready for a new member of your family. :-) Bloodhound puppies require more attention in the first 4 to 6 months than adult dogs. If you plan to keep your bloodhound puppy outside, inspect your kennel or run or backyard fence to make sure it is puppy safe, and has shelter from sun and for cold weather. If your puppy will be inside, this is a good excuse to buy those new tennis shoes you've been wanting...so you can exercise along with your puppy on long walks!
Select the puppy you want from those in our litter(s) that are for sale. We generally do not advertise our puppies until they are 3 to 4 weeks of age. However, if you join our contact list we will gladly keep you up to date, via email, when the puppies are born, send you photos, videos, etc. We always welcome visitors, but ask our customers to wait to choose their puppy until they are at least 7 weeks old. By this time we can evaluate them to make it easier for you to choose the right puppy for your situation.
Contact us to make sure the puppy is still available. We update our web site daily, so chances are that if it is not marked as sold, it is still available.
When you are ready to adopt a puppy, fill out our Puppy Application so we can learn a little about you and have all the info on hand that we need. We will get back to you, usually within 24 hours.
If you don't hear from us in response to a question you asked in the comments section, it would generally be because we didn't receive the message for some reason, such as spam filtering. It might be a good idea to e-mail yourself to remind you when you requested info. If you don't receive our reply within 24 hours, please contact us via phone at 641-788-2227.
