We are taking reservations now for our upcoming litter.  Please contact us for more details.  

 Please read the information below BEFORE contacting us about available puppies.

Do your research, not all breeders are created equally!  Just because a breeder registers their puppies does not mean that they are a reputable breeder.  Don't be afraid to 'interview' your breeder, they will be happy that you are asking questions.  Look for a breeder who shows their dogs, who does health testing (official OFA results for hips and elbows cannot be given until the dog is 2 years old), who waits until their girls are at least two years old before they are bred so that the girls  are mentally and physically mature and who is committed to the breed.  Someone who belongs to breed clubs and all breed clubs and is looking out for the future of the breed.   A good breeder is one that will always be there for the life of your puppy to answer any questions or concerns and is willing to help their puppy owners. 

Please read these guidelines on how to choose a responsible and reputable breeder.  Click HERE to check out the breeder checklist.   


Our puppies/dogs come with full health guarantees and are only placed in pre-approved homes.   To be considered for a Novacoast puppy, you must fill out our Puppy Application by clicking HERE.   Please answer the questions with as much detail as possible.  Reservations are highly recommended as waiting lists start before the puppies are even born. 

We do not take reservations based on color preference alone, we cannot guarantee that just because a puppy is the color that you like that he or she would be a good fit for you and your family.  It is more important for us to provide you with a puppy that has the drive, energy level and personality that best matches your needs.  Litter evaluations are done between 8 and 9 weeks of age and after that time we will decide where each puppy will be going  and who will be staying with us.   Our puppies do not leave until they are 10 weeks old at the earliest .  


We are very careful as to where we place our puppies.  Great care is taken to match the right puppy with the right owner.   We will be asking lots of questions and be asking for lots of references.  If you are not willing to take the time to answer our questions and provide us with the references that we request, please do not be offended when we refuse to sell you a puppy.  Our main priority is the welfare of our puppies, we are responsible for bringing them into the world and we take our job of finding them the perfect home very seriously!   

Before we agree to place a puppy we will send you a copy of our contract.  Please take the time to read over the contract carefully.  If there is a clause in our contract that you do not intend to follow please do not purchase a puppy from us.  


We put a lot of care and work into each litter, every Novacoast puppy is very special!!  All litters are born in our bedroom and are later moved to our livingroom when they are about 3 to 4 weeks old.  We spend a great amount of time playing with our puppies and socializing them from a very young age.  We believe that every puppy needs a good start to life.  When you purchase a Novacoast puppy you become a part of the Novacoast family.  We will always be available to provide support and to answer questions and we will look forward to updates and pictures of your new puppy.
