As top-rated, 5 star breeders, we only breed 4 litters as a maximum (quite often less) from our girls here, and we don't breed them once they reach the age of 7.
Our dogs are always secure with us, and even after they have finished breeding, they are guaranteed a home for life.
What we do offer, is for the girls to go on 'loan' to approved homes. This is where they can be permanently fostered in to a home, on condition that should there ever be any problems or changes in circumstances at all, the dog can always come back to us here at Hallslake. In effect this means that the dog will belong to the new home in all ways, but giving us the security of knowing that our girls can't ever be sold on or end up with an insecure future.
Often this option suits older people who have always had dogs but don't feel it would be fair to start out again with a puppy that may in all possibility may outlive them. But sometimes people do just prefer the idea of having a more mature dog that has already passed through the shoe-chawing stage!
We are very cautious about where the dogs go. We like to thoroughly understand the home, situation, or family, to make sure they are well suited to the personality of the dog. We also hope for regular updates to let us know that all is well. All our dogs are spayed before leaving us, and will be fully vaccinated and up to date with health tests, and on a regular flea and worming treatment as you would expect.

Our gorgeous boy Willy-Wonka is looking for a loving new pet home. He is now castrated and has a fantastic fun & playful personality. He is very clever and athletic, and he would make a really fun pet. So does enjoy chasing, he really needs to go to a home without livestock, but he is really good with other dogs, loves people and is a great character!
He is available free of charge, on a permanent loan basis (effectively he belongs to his new home, but he can never be sold on, and should circumstances change he will always come back to us).
Please call us if you are interested to meet Willy.
Occasionally we might have older puppies available, either of our own, or through changes in customers circumstances.
These are always sold with the same full backing we give all of our puppies.
When our stud dogs are used on outside bitches we are often asked to help sell the litter. Because our boys are all 100% health tested to be clear and non-carriers of all hereditary conditions, it means that they are safe to breed to all bitches, and none of their puppies could ever be affected by any of the testable conditions that can be passed on.
If we are asked to use our boys to stud one of the girls that we have bred here and sold, instead of asking a stud fee, we sometimes ask for a puppy back in return. Because of this, very occasionally we may have a puppy available to sell from a privately owned bitch that has herself been bred here at Hallslake.
