1. Does YDP breed or own any of the parents to the puppies we place.
No. We get our puppies from different situations. Examples are families that simply can't take care of the puppies, feed them, get them proper veterinarian care or place them in good homes. In some cases we help get the parents of the puppies spayed or neutered. In other cases we help out families that may have a litter of puppies and need help placing them.
2. Are all of our puppies rescue puppies?
All of our puppies are not rescue puppies. We provide a service to families who would like us to place their puppies. We do not determine their pricing. Each litter is a totally different situation. If you looking to see and meet the parents, talk to the family the puppies originally came from then your best option as a consumer is to get your puppy directly from a breeder. The reason we are showing the puppies for families is because they have busy family lifestyle or would rather not deal with the adoption process.
3.Where do the puppies come from?
All over New York State. There's no specific location.
4. Are we a puppy mill?
Absolutely not, we get most of our puppies from families with 1 or 2 dogs.
5. How many puppies can be viewed per appointment.
We like to keep each appointment to a 3 puppy maximum. Please try to narrow down your decision before making your appointment.
6. How do we socialize our puppies?
We socialize our puppies by having them around children and other dogs. They get light training and plenty of exercise.
7. Are our puppies good with children?
All puppies before being placed will have plenty of interactions with children but will still need proper and additional training.
8. Can I just stop by to play with the puppies?
Unfortunately No, our volunteers work very hard to work with families that's looking to adopt a puppy. To eliminate our puppies from being stressed out, we like to limit their appointments to families that's ready to adopt.
9. Will your puppy you adopt be healthy?
YDP stands behind the quality of all of our puppies. We try our best to make sure your puppy is healthy and will make a smooth transition. All of our puppies are vet checked and must pass a health examine. Any minor issues with a puppy will be noted on your vet check paperwork and will be conveyed to you before placing the puppy. If a puppy has a reducible hernia that will be noted by the vet on the paperwork and will close as the puppy grows. A reducible hernia does not require surgery. No discount will be given for a puppy with a reducible hernia. If a puppy has a non reducible hernia that may require surgery in the future, usually doing spay and neuter time. A small discount will be given for a non reducible hernia.
