No they aren’t. You will have to do it at the proper age (most vets will fix them at 6 months of age).
Please don’t worry about that yourself, instead, please bring the vaccination records to your veterinarian and they will decide what’s next and how often.
All newborn puppies are listed from $800 to $1400 depending on colors, adult sizes, or characteristics. The ones that take longer to sell, will gradually reduce their price until they eventually get sold.
Another common question we get is, why such puppy hasn't sold yet?
The answer is very simple, WE DON’T KNOW and there is no way to tell. No, they didn't sell fast for health issues or bad temperaments, that's a bad logic because most buyers are from different states and they can’t tell the difference, no matter what pet you buy (whether it is a Dog, a Cat, a Bird, or reptiles), there will always be some that will sell first and some that will sell last, there are no formulas that suggest which ones will sell faster.
We guarantee that all puppies we sell are totally healthy and wonderful pets.
All puppies include the following
- All puppies include a Health guarantee, up to date vaccinations/dewormings (vaccination records provided) and a microchip already inserted, but you will need to register the numbers for only an extra $22 more less. (Details about the microchip are on the same vaccination records).
- If shipped by airlines, will include a health certificate and a travel crate.
- If shipped with pet nanny, you need to get a carrier or crate when you meet the nanny at the airport otherwise we can buy one for you for only $30 more.
We are breeders ourselves but we also use our studs to work with others families who have a couple of female dogs. We make agreements to promote and sell their puppies and we only work with families we can trust.
You can see the breeding adults "The parents" page and on each ad, a description and name of the parents will be disclosed.
These are the reasons why we don’t focus on potty trainings:
- We want to sell you a healthy puppy, so our work is done on disease-controlled environments, this implies to use “easy to clean” crates and play pens and confined environments.
- Since we work with more than 1 litter of puppies at a time, we are unable to potty train them all. (They are treated like babies on a crib). We rather clean constantly than exposing them to the grass or floors that can possibly have contagious diseases (diseases can be easily brought on our shoe soles after going to a vet, or after getting pet supplies from the pet store).
We have more than 12 years of experience and we work very hard to sell healthy puppies, this is why we rather sacrifice any trainings, however for you will be a lot easier, since only have puppy to potty train. Just feed by schedule (water and food) and retrieve the bowl after each meal, if you leave food/water available all day long, they will have the tendency to eat frequently and the more times they eat, the more times they need to use the restroom.
95% of our customers are very happy with their puppy’s ability to potty train and probably 5 to 10 percent may have a little more difficulty on this issue which can be solved by using a different potty training method.
Only within the family members, a knowledgeable breeder with lots of experience will never want to expose very young puppies to anything/anyone whom can transmit a disease unless such puppy is advanced on vaccinations.

You can see the difference from a fraudulent website to a genuine and reliable website by using the following guidelines.
- We accept credit cards, a simple chargeback will protect you from being ripped off. Most scams happen when you wire the money.
- See our credentials page, we are USDA licensed and have a Sales Tax permit. Scams don’t bother to have any compliance or meet any requirements.
- On our credential page also shows when our website was created, (2008), I don’t think a scam or fraudulent website will last that long.
- Our Testimonials, we post our most recent custommers photos there, and you can go back to 12 years ago.
Please be careful, there are a lot of fraud activities out there.
People are getting ripped off in many many ways
- Please be careful with those websites selling Maltipoos for $$00-$600, Their phone number is Canadian and their Whois website information shows they are located in Panama, Some people had complained that they are scams.
- Please avoid puppy-mills; don’t be tempted by their cheap prices.
- Be careful with sellers from foreign countries, especially those who claim to be a pastor or a priest and are trying to find a good home for their free puppy, they usually ask you to wire money for delivery fees.
- Avoid wire transfer; there is no way you can get your money back if your puppy gets sick, dies or if you don't get a puppy at all. Instead use PayPal, Credit cards or Escrow.com.
- Be careful with sellers who are bringing puppies from Mexico, some even smuggle them and these may carry diseases.
- Be careful with underage puppies, a lot of breeders will sell you a puppy as teacup when in fact they are only 4-5 weeks old at the time of sale to make you believe that you are getting an amazing deal.
- Be careful with local breeders who only give you 1-3 days health guarantee, I'd suggest you to get at least 1 year warranty since it takes a few months for genetic issues to appear and up to 15 days for diseases to show symptoms. Make sure this is in writing.
- Ask for credentials, testimonials or references from past customers.
- Avoid meeting a breeder or seller at a gas station. Get their address and so you can see where they live in case their puppy becomes unhealthy, don't just be satisfied with a phone number since they can easily change it or disconnect it.
- Avoid buying a puppy from flea markets, many people have reported to buy a puppy that became sick and died a few days later, losing the puppy, their money and the vet bills. "What's cheap turn out to be expensive" In other words, don't buy a puppy for their low price, at the end you know that "you get what you pay for".
Read our credentials page for more information
Yes, please refer to the appointment page to make arrangements.
No sorry, due to the fact that all breeders must go through some requirements they all have to be from our area.
They have to be at least 8 weeks or older to be released. We usually release our puppies at the age of 9 weeks old.
First of all, the names "teacups, mini tiny, micro mi tiny toy, mini toys, or tiny toys" are just nick names given by buyers or breeders and they are not official names to identify their breed's size.
We don't intentionally sell teacup puppies because...
- They are harder to produce; the mother normally has 1-3 puppies per litter.
- They are harder to ship, they are prone to hypoglycemia due to stress or if the skip a meal.
- They are difficult to keep alive if they get sick since their immune system is usually weaker than a normal size dog.
- A dog is not supposed to be that small, period.
- They require to be 3 months of age before they can be released (which adds more maintenance expenses) and therefore are way more expensive.
Sometimes some of our puppies are “runt of the litter” and may grow smaller than expected, there could be a significant difference in price though.
- Eliminates risk for testicular and prostate cancer (prostatitis).
- Reduces risk of perianal tumors.
- Reduces roaming and fighting.
- Reduces spraying or marking.
- Eliminates unwanted or unexpected liters.
- Makes training easier.
- 80% of all bites are from intact dogs.
- Eliminates risk of ovarian and uterine cancer.
- Eliminates unwanted pregnancies.
- Eliminates chance of breast cancer.
- Reduces hormonal changes.
- Will not go into heat, eliminating bleeding.
Spay or neutering DOES NOT Cause laziness OR hyperactivity, doesn't reduce their instinct to protect their family and home, doesn't cause immature behaviors or delays maturity, does not alter personality in any manner.
First of all, here is a list of things you will need to consider...
BEFORE YOU GET THE PUPPY
- A wire crate or a playpen.
- A bed.
- Some wewe pads.
- Puppy food (Ask what type if you would like to continue with the same food).
AFTER YOU GET THE PUPPY
- Leash / Collar.
- Additional shots (Bring the records to your vet and he will tell you what else is needed and how often).
- Yearly booster vaccinations for rabies and other diseases.
- Grooming (This could be from 1 to 3 times a year, depending on your specific needs).
- Puppies/dogs need to be brushed every other day to avoid matting.
- Can be bathed from 1 to 3 times a week. Get a dog/puppy shampoo from any pet store.
- Need to be nail clipped every month more less.
- Dental cleaning once every 2 to 8 years (it depends on the food, water and care provided).
- Spayed or neutered at 4-6 months of age.
- Monthly treatments for flea/ticks, heart worm & intestinal parasites (These last two come together, depending on the brand).
Taking care of a puppy is very easy.
Most diseases are acquired by direct or indirect contact, so please avoid exposing your puppy to the public until he/she gets all the shots
We will use the term “fully vaccinated” when a puppy has received a total of 4 vaccinations “for Parvo and Distemper virus” which are given every 2-4 weeks and the last vaccination was give at the age of 16 weeks.
Please be careful and follow these instructions or tips that will help you keep your puppy healthy. There are two deadly contagious diseases which are spread all over the world and you need to be careful while the puppy is not fully vaccinated.
Is a deadly disease that can be found in the environment in almost every country of the world. It is transmitted directly or indirectly and It can live for 2 years on the grass.
Directly transmission: When a sick puppy/dog infects another directly through saliva or feces.
Indirectly: If you steeped, touched, or were in direct or non-direct contact to an infected area, you can bring it home on your shoes soles, car tires, clothes (if you carried a sick puppy) door knobs and money can also transmit it, etc, etc.
Parvo is not an airborne virus, a combination of 4 oz of bleach (I would use 5 oz at least) to a gallon of water will be a good concentration to kill the virus. Hand sanitizing DOES NOT kill parvo virus.
This is one of the most deadliest viruses on dogs, because it is airborne, it is highly contagious. It can be transmitted through urine, saliva, fluids, feces, etc. if a puppy is infected, it has been known to infect others just by breathing the virus out but it is more common to infect thought sneezing and coughing. Symptoms can be runny eyes, runny nose, coughing, sneezing, hard paws, rash on the belly, diarrhea and eventually seizures, twitching and other neurological problems may occur. Survival rates are low, around 10% only.
Recommendations to avoid diseases.
Don't take your puppy to public parks, pet stores, groomers, etc.
When you go to the vet, go as early as possible, most clinics only disinfect when they close or sometimes when they open. If you don't go too early, take the puppy IN A CRATE, and don't allow anyone (especially children) or anything to touch your puppy. Try to wait on your car if possible and have them call you when is your turn and wash your hands for 20 seconds after touching the door's knob, the counter, money or anything inside a vet clinic BEFORE touching your puppy again.
If you go to a pet store or to the vet to buy supplies for your puppy, have the following item ready before you go.
Buy an empty sprayer bottle, add 1 Oz of bleach, fill it out with water and spray your shoe's sole before coming into your house. This is to avoid any possibilities of bringing Parvo virus from the pet store to your place and do this every time you come back from areas where people usually take their dogs and ALWAYS wash your hands with soup for 20 seconds after touching or handling other dogs, puppies, door knobs, or coming from a pet stores or places where other dogs may have been around.
Your home may not be 100% ready for a new puppy. Your new puppy will be quite small in size but will still be able to get himself into trouble. Puppies are like babies and love to play with everything. This means that things at ground level that may cause a mishap; will need to be considered. Puppies tend to put everything into their mouths. Things like electrical wires and cords need to be secured.
Another concern for your new puppy can be household cleaners and poisons. Many people have household cleaners, bug and rodent killers on low level shelves in their homes. For instance, you would want to make sure these items are placed on a higher shelf when your toddler who is crawling around. This is important because virtually all of these are considered to be poisonous to a puppy.
Household plants can be very harmful to your puppy. Some plants are very poisonous to animals. Plants such as Aloe Vera, Eucalyptus, and Baby's Breath are very toxic, just to name a few. It is always best to check with your local veterinarian before you bring your puppy home. The vet can tell you which plants you may need to get rid of.
It is best to remove all objects from the floor and lower areas of your home. It is recommended that you get down to your puppy level and see what they see. This can help you spot any problem areas and issue that you might have otherwise over looked.
The toilet is another issue for a puppy. You must always remember to keep the toilet seat lid down. Certain cleaners in the water and in your toilet bowl can be very toxic to animals. Also your puppy could fall in head first and may not be able to get a grip to get out. It is always recommended to keep the seat down.
If you have a balcony or porch, you must not leave your puppy unattended. Sometimes puppies tend to get to sneak through the bars or find a little opening. They can slip right through before you even have time to notice they are gone. Also if your balcony is on a higher level this is very important to remember because your puppy could slip through the bars and fall, this could cause serious injuries or even death.
What's a designer breed?
A designer "as the name tells you" it's a design, it does not meet any standards like pure breed dogs and that's why they are unique and most of the times more beautiful.
Designer dogs are mixed dogs from one breed to another or even multi crosses.
If you look at this information below, there isn't of much difference if you see it through a different perspective.
Pure breeds were once designer dogs because they were created by mixing 2 or more breeds.
- American bulldog has Bulldog, Mastiff sprang, British war dogs and dogue de bordeaux in its blood.
- American Eskimo Dog comes from the German Spitz, Keeshond, Pomeranian and Italian Spitz.
- American Pitt Bull & Staffordshire Terriers are a mix from a variety of bulldogs and terriers.
- Australian silky terrier is a mix of Yorkshire terrier with the Australian terrier.
- Beagle from from a Harrier and other hounds in England
- Bichon Frise is also a mix from Maltese, miniature Spaniel, miniature Poodle & Cayenne dogs.
- Borzoi from from Saluki, Greyhound, and a lean of variety of Russian sheepdog.
- Boxer is a cross between Brabanter Bullenbeisser & Bulldog
- Dogo Argentino is a mix from Great Dane, Bull Terrier, Boxer, Pointer, Great Pyrenees, Old English Bulldog, Irish Wolfhound, Dogue de Bordeaux and the Spanish Mastiff.
- Golden retrievers come from crosses between a yellow Flat-Coated Retriever, light-coated Tweed Water Spaniels, other spaniels, setters and even the Newfoundland and possibly the Bloodhound.
- Labrador retrievers come from the Newfoundland dog.
- Papillon may have Spanish Dwarf Spaniel and Spitz as well.
- Pomeranian was developed in Pomerania, Germany, by breeding from small varieties of the large German Spitz.
- Saint Bernards are a cross between Great Danes, Newfoundland & English Mastiffs.
- Shih Tzu is a mix of Tibetan Mountain Dog and the Pekingese.
- Yorkshire terriers come from different types of terrier, including the Skye and the now extinct Clydesdale.
- Bull Terriers & Boston terriers come from a mix of a bull dog and a white English terrier.
So... if you have a pure AKC dog just keep in mind that it was also a designer dog created by people.
Designer dogs are intentionally mixed dogs to come up with the following benefits...
Mixed breeds in general tend to be healthier than pure breeds, as the breeding lines are more broadly spread and there is limited opportunity for inbreeding. Pure bred dogs almost come from the same gene pool.
When the pure breed dogs were created, in order to keep their standards and good look, breeders would rely on inbreeding "another type of cloning" (inbreeding examples means mating the mom with son, dad with daughter, brother and sister, etc) this is great to preserve their lines but as results it brings devastating side effect on their genetics. Examples: (A short life spam, unable to reproduce, heart murmurs, brain defects, blind, hip dysphasia, legs deformity, demodex mange "a problem with their immune system" problems with kidneys, liver and heart. etc,. etc. etc.) Click here to learn about pros and cons of inbreeding. And also click here to see the results of Inbreeding.
Their beautiful appearance since they will develop a new beautiful look.
They a very cute and have more color options. Unlike the traditional flat color of some breeds, designer dogs will amuse you with their variety in colors and hair types. With designer dogs you don't have to stick to only one type of hair, now you have a choice whether you prefer wavy, curly or straight hair.
* If one breed lacks of colors, the other breed will add colors to the new breed.
* If one dog has straight hair, the other breed will add some waves or curls to the new breed.
* If one breed has smaller eyes, the other will balance it out.
* If one breed has a long snout, the other breed will make it smaller.
If one breed is too energetic, the other breed will make calmer, If one breed is too barky, the other will make reduce this annoying behavior, etc. It has been proven that they will have better temperaments. By mixing a Poodle with other breed will come up with a friendlier, sweeter temperament. And thanks to the poodle (Which is a dog most circus use for tricks), they will be very smart.
- Mixes coming from the Maltese, or the poodle, are hypoallergenic which makes a dog with a decreased tendency to provoke an allergic reaction.
Hypoallergenic pets still produce allergens, but because of their coat type, absence of fur, none or low shedding fur, typically produce less than others of the same species.
Questions and answers
Are these designer dogs first generations?
Some are first generations but some are not.
Designer dogs can be either a cross between 2 pure breed dogs, 2 second generation dogs, 1 pure dog and 1 designer dog or multi-generation. Their generation or combination are not relevant to their price.
Are first generation dogs are healthier than second generation mixes?
In fact, the more far away you go from a pure breed the best chances to get rid of the bad genes and come up with a genetically healthier dog. Purebred dogs were initially created by mixing some breeds to come out with a cute look, in order to keep the line and standards, they did a lot of inbreeding which was another type of cloning. As long as there is no inbreeding your second or multi generation designer dogs, they will always have better chances to be healthier than pure bred.

Only males are hampers.
FALSE... Males and females can be hampers especially if they are not spayed or neutered. Humping is not a sexual behavior, it is a dominance behavior and can be prevented by spaying or neutering your dog before the age of 6 months.
Depigmentation on their nose is sign of illness.
FALSE... Many puppies are born with partially black/pink nose and eventually most of it will turn either black or brown.
Only males mark territory.
FALSE... Unfixed Males and females will mark territory to show dominance when they feel unsecured. Unfixed Males pick up their leg to urinate. Unfixed females will have their period every 5-8 months. Unless you are planning to breed them you should have them fixed.
First generation mixed breeds are healthier than second generations.
FALSE... Both will be healthy as long as the parents are not related. In fact, the more far away you go from a pure breed the best chances to get rid of the bad genes and come up with a genetically healthier dog. Purebred dogs were initially created by mixing some breeds to come out with a cute look, treats and behavior. In order to keep these line and standards, they did a lot of inbreeding which was another type of cloning. (Click here to learn about pros and cons of inbreeding).
As long as there is no inbreeding in practice, your 1st generation, 2nd generation or multigeneration designer breeds will always have better chances to be healthier than pure dogs.
Only first generation designer breeds are hypoallergenic.
FALSE... regardless of their generations. A puppy will always be hypoallergenic if both parents are hypoallergenic, this is common sense.
