Adoption Process

In order for us to place our beloved puppies in loving forever homes, we carefully screen each potential family to help insure that appropriate matches are made so that our puppies do not end up in an unwanted situation. We also feel that it is very important for potential families to screen us by asking questions relevant to our dog breeding practices/puppy rearing, therefore, we encourage and welcome questions at every stage of the adoption process.  


To be considered for placement on our Waiting List or to adopt an available puppy, please submit an Adoption Application.  After receiving an Adoption Application, the application will be reviewed and we will attempt to respond within 24 hours. Once approved, detailed information concerning the adoption process will be emailed to approved potential families.

Our waiting list is for individuals/families that are SERIOUS about adopting a Southern Grace puppy.  

 Individuals/families that are approved to adopt a Southern Grace puppy can secure a spot on our waiting list by placing a non-refundable deposit ($100.00). This is a new policy that we have enacted in order to maintain ethical breeding practices. We plan our breedings very carefully so that we have assurance that the puppies that are produced have wonderful homes lined-up for them.

Acceptable methods of payment are cash and PayPal.  


We reserve the right to refuse a puppy to anyone, at any time, for any reason. The health and well-being of our puppies is our utmost concern.

My little dog-a heartbeat at my feet.

Please note that we reserve the right to retain a puppy from any litter for future breeding stock.  Thank you for understanding!
