Our Guardian Program
As we believe that all of our dogs deserve a loving home with their own special families we will be placing some of our breeding dogs in “guardian homes”. Our guardian program is an exchange program which involves Sprucetree’s breeding dogs and our guardian families. Our breeding dogs are premium dogs which remain intact for a set amount of time for the purpose of breeding. Our breeding dogs carry a high monetary value and require extra care and attention. The exchange involves the guardian family giving our extra-special dogs a safe and loving home to call their own. The exchange is not free but comes at a great discount for a high-valued dog. Chosen guardian homes are required to pay a deposit on their dog. This deposit will be returned to the guardian once the dog has been released from the breeding program unless the dog is not used in the breeding program for any reason. If the dog is not used, the guardian will have received a puppy at a substantially lower price. Once our dogs have completed their breeding years they will be neutered at the breeder's expense and continue to live out their lives in their forever homes.
If you are interested in becoming a guardian home for one of our breeding dogs please read through the requirements below.
