* Serious Buyer's: Click to download our Buyer's Questionnaire (Word Document)
* All puppies will be sold on a "limited registration" unless prearranged. This entitles Dove Hill to determine which dogs are of superior quality and allowed to be bred. Limited registration may be upgraded to "full" after the dog is 2 years old and all clearances have been satisfied, such as hips/elbows/eyes and heart. The only reason for changing the registration status would be to allow for an approved breeding or competition in the breed ring. Click here to see the AKC recommendation and description of the "limited registration" benefits to the new owner and us, the breeder.
