Each puppy deserves a good family
The Picardy Shepherd is a rare and ancient herding breed with beautiful qualities that I strive to preserve and
protect. I wish to take the time to get to know the future guardians of the Noble Picard puppies in order to help
them make an informed choice for the happiness and wellbeing of everyone. The process of adopting a Picardy
Shepherd, or any other dog, can’t be done on the spur of the moment, it is a commitment that entails
responsibilities and deserves consideration.
The scarcity of Picard puppies will give you ample time to study the breed, discover whether the Picardy
shepherd is a dog for you, choose the breeder whom you want to entrust with the so precious, the first months of
life of your future canine companion and prepare adequately for his arrival. Acquiring a Picardy shepherd
requires patience because you will have to wait for his birth. It is not uncommon to be on a wait list for one or two
years. Shelters are overcrowded with very good dogs dying to find a new family, if the love you have to offer cant
wait, consider giving a second chance to these dogs.
The perfect match
The Picardy shepherd is an energetic dog that needs to be raised with a lot of patience and gentleness but also in
a firm and determined manner. Although I perfectly understand the attraction one might have towards this
charming rogue, I must, for his happiness and yours, make sure you understand the type of dog you are about to
adopt. I can not let a puppy go until I have the assurance that he is really the dog you are looking for and that you
have the necessary time and experience to give him a good life. In order to help us make the perfect match
between your new puppy and you please follow this link and complete the adoption questionnaire.
