Waiting List

If you like one of our moms and want a future puppy; or are looking for something specific, you can join our waiting list! This is simply a list of people who get first chance to get one of our puppies before we post them as Available. To join our waiting list, just contact us! We will send you our puppy application form, and once it is approved, we require a $200 non-refundable deposit to hold your place on our waiting list. You are free to leave at any time should you find another puppy, but the $200 deposit cannot be returned. Everyone on our waiting list will get regular updates on expectant mamas, new litters, and other information. When a litter is born, you will get information about that litter such as pictures, genders, and more. Feel free to ask questions about the puppies! 

Breeders

We want the best for our puppies and want them each to go to a home where they will be loved and cherished. We do not sell to backyard breeders or kennels. We may consider very small breeders where the dogs live indoors and are part of the family. 

    American Kennel Club Registration

Each of our puppies comes with limited American Kennel Club (AKC) registration unless otherwise stated. Full registration is available to approved homes.  

    Shelters

If you are ever in a situation where you feel that you cannot keep your puppy, please contact us! We will do all we can to help you find a new loving home for your fur-baby. We totally understand. Life happens! But please never send your doggie friend to a shelter. Shelters are very harmful and stressful to all dogs, but especially tiny ones like Chihuahuas!  

Vaccines 

Here at Pawsh Puppies, we care deeply about the health of our fur-babies, and want to make to very best possible decisions for each one.  After doing a lot of research, we decided to follow Dr. Jean Dodds DVM vaccination protocol for our Chihuahua puppies. Because of their small size, we feel like six to eight weeks is too early for a Chihuahua puppy to get their first vaccines. Chihuahuas are the smallest breed in the world, and are often under one or two pounds when they get their first vaccines. Because of their tiny size, they are much more prone to vaccines reactions. These reactions can be extremely harmful, and even deadly to your tiny pet!  Vaccine reactions are unfortunately, quite common, and may occur not only immediately after the shot, but over days, weeks, months or even years later in what is immunologically accepted and known as a “Delayed Hypersensitivity Reaction”. Over the years, we have been raising our chihuahuas with a delicate balance of holistic and conventional care. We incorporate only certain vaccines and medicines as needed, but the greater majority of our health regimen is completely natural, and it has been proven effective by me and so many others.

In that case, a rabies antibody titer can also be performed to accompany the waiver request.
