The J Litter is 6 1/2 weeks old now and we have a few new videos. It’s been hot this week so we busted out the kiddie pool for them.

The J litter turned 5 weeks yesterday, and as you can see from the videos, they are a lot more active and playful. It’s also didn’t take long for them to learn banging on their food dish means chow time.

The J Litter turned 4 weeks today, and they’re growing quickly. They also had a busy weekend, as they were moved to the puppy pen and went outside for the first time. Here’s a couple short videos of them playing in the puppy pen and a little trip outside.

J Litter – 2 weeks old

Welcome J Litter

3 males and 4 females were born in the early hours of July 13th. Elsa and the pups are doing great. It’s been a long 18 months since we’ve had a litter at Hunter’s Moon Kennel. As most of us know, the puppy demand has never been high since the Covid-19 pandemic hit us. We’ve had close to 100 people contact us. Many phone conversations and several visitors come to meet our dogs. The J litter wasn’t as big as some of our last litters, but all the pups are healthy and doing well. We will be keeping a female to add to our kennel, so only 6 puppies available this year. We had more than enough great homes we could place them in, but unfortunately we were limited to 6 homes this litter. Due to the timing of the J litter, we had several people choose to move to the next plan litter for spring of 2022. If you didn’t hear back from us, and are still searching for a pup, please stay in touch with us about the 2022 litter.
