Q. Do you have puppies available?

A. Read below and also the Deposits page to understand why we don't have a simple answer to that question.

We breed for ourselves and look for our next show prospects from each litter. We evaluate our puppies at around 8-12 weeks of age, and some will be kept for additional time, for further evaluation. If there are any puppies we decide not to keep for ourselves or other show exhibitors, they will first be offered to those who have already submitted a deposit (we do not require deposits). We do not place and reserve puppies the way many breeders do. Please read about our sales process and deposit policy and status (how many future puppies have already been reserved) on the Deposits page.

More puppies arrived on June 1st: 2 cream girls (Girl #1 on left side is slightly darker) and 1 sabled fawn red boy w/a black mask. These could be long or smooth coats or both. We'll know which when they are a few weeks old. 

 

This was an exciting breeding, as we purposefully bred mama "Bear" to TWO sires (see below) and we are hoping these puppies are from both! DNA testing will reveal who the sire(s) are. We won't have those results for several weeks.  In the meantime, we can have fun guessing who the sire(s) are.

Please note: Our average size puppy grows up to be 4-1/2 to 5-1/2 pounds, sometimes smaller and sometimes bigger. If you are looking for a puppy smaller than 4-1/4 pounds, I encourage you to continue your search for another breeder. Our goal is to produce puppies in the above size range and our bloodlines have not been producing any smaller than 4-1/4 pounds. Please read about "teacup" Chihuahuas on our Why Purchase From Us? page.

Watch puppies grow on our Facebook Page where we post lots of photos. Search for Li'l Promised Land's AKC Chihuahuas if the link doesn't work.

If you are interested in purchasing one of our puppies, please submit a Puppy Application and read our sales process and Deposits policy.

AVAILABLE ADULT(S) and OLDER PUPPIES

None available at this time.

Q. What makes you decide to sell an older puppy/dog?

A. Our puppy evaluation process is ongoing.  It begins at birth and continues until we retire each dog. There are certain time frames/ages when we are most likely to decide if one is going to be offered to a pet home or kept for further evaluation.  The first evaluations happen between birth and 6 weeks.  We narrow it down more by the 8 week mark. The next milestone is 12 weeks and then 6 months.  By one year of age, we usually decide whether or not a puppy will join our breeding program, but we keep an open mind to do what is best for the puppy, as well as the long term goals for our breeding program. We are preservation breeders trying to preserve certain traits in our bloodlines.  Sometimes certain traits don’t show up until the puppy matures.  There are various factors that influence our decision.  Some of these include temperament, conformation, size, bloodlines, as well as the overall goals we have for our family and breeding program at the time.  We do the same puppy “matchmaking” process with puppies we keep for ourselves as we do with those going to pet homes. When we offer an older puppy, it is because we have made the decision that the best match for that particular puppy is in another home rather than in our breeding program as a whole.  

If you are interested in a future puppy or adult, please submit a Puppy Application, if you have not already done so.

We limit the number of Chihuahua family members we keep, so we can continue offering a high level of care, to each one. From time to time, we may offer an adult or older puppy to a special pet home.

Since we only have a few dogs, it's rare for us to have one to offer. Our adults make good pets, since they are raised as pets in our home and don't live in a kennel environment. They have freedom to run around our home, can come and go through a doggie door to play outside, enjoy lots of time with our family hanging out and are pretty good at pottying outside, as that's where we train all our dogs to potty.

Please note that we take our time in finding a perfect home for our special older dogs. We do not necessarily sell them to the first person we hear from. We like to get to know multiple people and then select the home we feel suits them best.

Prices for an older dog are variable. If you are interested, plan on them being at least the same as our pet price (see below for current prices) but some might be higher or lower, depending on the individual dog.

Pricing, policies & shipping/transport options

Most puppies we decide not to keep are sold as pets with LIMITED AKC registration and a Spay/Neuter Agreement. 

 

If there is a show prospect available, we will consider offering Full AKC to experienced show exhibitors or those serious about becoming one. We put a lot of thought into this decision and are not hasty about offering it. We will not offer breeding rights/full AKC simply because someone asks for them, even if you are willing to pay a higher price. If you are interested in Full AKC, please contact us and tell us about your goals, showing history and setup (how do your dogs live?). Please include your website if you have one and references from other exhibitors.

 

Prices vary and are subject to change. Current pet price $2200.

Shipping: We do not ship pet puppies at this time. However, you are welcome to travel here to come meet him/her and personally bring a puppy home. If extra services are required in order to fly a puppy home (health certificate, travel crate, etc.), buyer is responsible for those extra expenses. We may be able to meet you at the airport or a few hours from our home for an extra fee. Please read our Transport/pick up options page for more information and options.
