On occasion, we have adult retirees from our breeding program available. We are so thankful to these dogs for the contribution they have made to our breeding program.
Placing these dogs in forever homes is a difficult decision. It is not done so because we don’t love them. Nothing could be further from the truth. These dogs are adored and we treasure them.
However, if we have any hope of continuing a breeding program, we can not keep all of our dogs. Our city limits wont allow it, and the practical side of accumulating dogs mean that they miss out on the 1:1 time that they deserve. Being 1 of 2 or 3 dogs at your house means they can be spoiled so much more than if they were 1 of 5 or 6 dogs at my house.
If you want to be considered for one of our retiring dogs, there are a few thoughts.
- A benefit of an older dog is that they are already house trained, crate trained and can walk on a leash.
- We only rehome our retired dogs to homes with dogs in them. Our dogs are used to being in a pack and so we don’t want them to be solo dogs (unless we state that). So, if you don’t have a dog, or aren’t interested in adopting a puppy at the same time, a retiring dog from us isn’t right for you. Please understand why this is important to us. Our dogs social and emotional wellbeing will always come first.
Below are our available retiring dogs: If there are no dogs listed, we do not have any retiring dogs available at this time.
Allie a sweet girl. We adore her and she is very easy to live with. She is quite submissive and we are learning that she thrives in a smaller pack environment than in a larger group, so we are hoping to place her with someone who has 1 or max 2 dogs, so she doesnt have to be the bottom of too many dogs. She tends to love playing with boys who come to our house a little more, but honestly anyone who is up for a game of chase is her new BFF. Allie is a toy hoarder, loving nothing more than to “hide” them all over your living room so she can discover them later on.
As with Emmy and Brie, we would love to place Allie in her forever home when the right fit comes along. I would ideally like to have 1 litter from her, and then spay her and have her retire completely with her new family.
Emmy is available to a retirement home on a special contract. She is a 5 year old, sweet, easy going girl who loves nothing more than to lay on the couch and snuggle her favorite people. Due to needing to downsize our numbers in California, we are looking for a home that would be willing to let us have one more litter when she comes into season (most likely around early 2022), and then we would spay her and give her back to you. But you could have her anytime to enjoy her in the meantime. For logistical reasons, a home around the Seattle reason would be preferred.
Brie is available to a retirement home on a special contract. She is a 5 year old, loving, fun girl who loves to play with toys. Brie is the daughter of Victoria (below). Due to needing to downsize our numbers in California, we are looking for a home that would be willing to let us have one more litter when she comes into season (most likely around early 2022), and then we would spay her and give her back to you. But you could have her anytime to enjoy her in the meantime. For logistical reasons, a home around the Seattle reason would be preferred, but we are happy to be flexible for the right family.
SASHA & VICTORIA
Sasha (on the left) and Victoria (on the right) are littermates and a bonded pair of veterans at 9 years young. These girls are the matriarchs of the Kazuri bloodline – Sasha is the mother of Madison and Mia. To place them was a hard decision. With Mike and Karen moving to TN and travelling so much to shows, we felt it was not fair on them to move across the country. While they are still in great condition, we didn’t want to put that kind of stress on them. We felt it was time to find them a forever couch to retire on. If you are interested in giving this sweet pair a forever home, please let me know. We will have them spayed and a full vet work up done before they go to their forever homes. We will only re-home them together.
