Uma's 2015 Litter
Due to Overwhelming Interest - -
We have gotten commitments from five great families for this litter.
We had many wonderful families to choose from, and feel terrible that we can’t help more folks find their next ‘best friend’ and potential love of their life! These dogs are so much, to so many nice people.
Thanks for getting in touch, and hope you find the Pup of your dreams soon.

Uma's Pups are here!
We have 4 females and 1 male.
#1 Female- Black and White spotted and ears
#2 Male- Black and White spotted and ears
#3 Female- Tri-color spots and ears
#4 Female- White (largest of the litter)
#5 Female- Black and White spotted and ears
Mom and the kids are doing great. Uma is eating 6-7 meals a day and drinking gallons of water. She spends 95% of her day in the whelping box with her kids, and they all are nursing with vigor! The other dogs are staying a respectful distance. This is Uma's second litter, and Orion's first.
We typically keep the pups together for 10 weeks, then begin the slow process of letting them go to new homes. We expect our new families to come to Atlanta (either fly or drive) to pick them up. We will provide a new Kennel for each, toys, beds and first collars, as well as all the necessary paperwork and age-appropriate vaccinations for each pup.
I'll try to update this page with new photos so you can see the pups develop, but for now - enjoy!

Typical Puppy Pile - Day 1
All 5 nursing or snuggling - and mom getting some needed rest.

She has been eating 6-7 meals a day to stay ready to feed her litter,
and drinking gallons of water, but only in her box with the kids.
A great Mom!

The Litter - at the juice bar
We usually select Shakespeare play characters for our litter names.
Since we have four females, and Shakespeare doesn’t use too many female characters,
for this litter we have chosen Louisa May Alcott’s Little Women novel, with her four sisters, and the boy next door.
Third Week Photos
Everyone is getting fat and happy - around 2 lbs each. Lots of sleeping - but with an expanded habitat - they are up and walking around - but mostly laying around!
