================================================= END OF PUPS FOR SALE  ========




         As a buyer I  would think that “when is the next available litter?” is a simple question.  We wish it were a simple predictable question, but as life generally goes it is a complicated question. 


Below is our explanation of the situation:

We wish we could tell a prospective buyer when a new litter will arrive.

There is no way Rancho Santiago Catahoulas can tell a buyer exactly when the next planned litter will be available for sale for several reasons out of our control.

 The plan to mate one of our special stud Catahoulas with one of our top quality bitches is decided by Rancho Santiago. The time to breed is decided when the bitch’s natural hormones trigger her heat cycle. Nature makes this breeding time decision over which we have no control.

After the breeding, because every breeding is not successful, there is a thirty-day wait to see if there was conception.

If the pups made, then a bitch (female) is pregnant 62-63 days before whelping (birth). At birth the puppies are closely inspected for health. As the pups grow their growth and development is monitored daily. 

Rancho Santiago wants our buyers to know the waiting time to receive a reserved pup can take several months… avaliability of pups all depends on the bitch’s heat cycle and conception.

Time has shown that a Rancho Santiago proven top of the breed quality puppy is well worth the wait. 




  Rancho Santiago's Pup Guarantee:           













We offer our buyers more of a guarntee than we receive as buyers.

 A Rancho Santiago pup must pass a Veterinarian’s fitness examination evaluating general health, conformation, hearing, eyesight and internal organs health before sale.

 Rancho Santiago's guarantee is that at the time of examination the pup passed a Veterinarian health inspection at five weeks of age or older and is physically sound of health of according to the Vet's examination.

 The pup’s photo at the top of Rancho Santiago's Health certificate verifies the inspection is for the pup pictured. This document is signed and dated by the Veterinarian.

Before taking possession of the pup a buyer or their representative should always read the Vet. Health certificate and closely inspect the individual Catahoula for soundness.

The buyer or their representative should not take possession of the dog if there is any concern about health or physical soundness.

We cannot guarantee the dog’s future physical health, development, emotional state, behavior or how it responds to training after the dog leaves Rancho Santiago's gates because the pup is out of our direct supervision, care and control.

When the buyer, their representative or dog transporter takes possession of the buyer’s dog they become responsible regarding the dog’s health, safety and well-being.
