Puppies are here..... graduation from the nursery begins the week before Christmas 2018.
What does that mean to you? It means that, you should contact us and reserve a puppy now. We maintain two lists of future puppy parents. One is for the "serious and committed" that has chosen Getmorepets as their breeder, and placed a $500 deposit towards their puppy. The other is for the "just looking, I might be ready, I'm not sure yet" group.
The Serious Parents, lock a place in line. Once the puppies are born and stable, with their eyes open, we provide a video and detailed information about the litter, and the price of each puppy. We will contact you when it's your turn and you will have 24 hours to pick or pass on a litter. This process is repeated with each litter. Once the Serious Parents have made their selections, then the "waiting list" is contacted as a group. It's first come first served.
Puppies stay here until they are 8 weeks or older if needed. They will be dewormed, vaccinated and vet checked prior to leaving. If you've reserved a puppy, you can expect a phone call, text or email to let you know how our checkup went. If there is anything that isn't right, you will have the choice of keeping that pick or passing until another you pick is available We will schedule a time and date for your puppy pickup at that time. You will have a penciled in date from the beginning.
While you're waiting on Baby Frenchie, you should find a veterinarian or touch base with your current vet. You will be required to have your puppy examined by the vet of your choice within 48 hours, to confirm your puppy is healthy. French Bulldogs are unique, and some vets have more experience with the brachycephalic requirements.
While you're waiting on Baby Frenchie, you'll have time to stock up on doggy stuff, like a crate, exercise pen, Nylabones, stainless steel or ceramic bowls, washable bedding, puppy food, training references. Study up on the brachycephalic requirements, like "they can't swim, and need a lifejacket", and .....wait. Check out Chewy.com too, they deliver to your door and also offer toys, puppy pads and training aids.
Just think, you could be posting cute photos of your newest "Love", and showing off your baby on Facebook.. I'll be happy to keep you updated on your puppy's growth, via video. Move over, and get ready to share your chair, sofa, lap, and life with your Next Best Friend. NBF
Your puppy needs lots of love, and needs you to be it's guardian. A puppy guardian ensures that it's safe from harm, danger and disease. Your puppy should not go out to play with other dogs, until it has had it's full vaccine protocol. Just like people, the young and old, are most sensitive to viruses and disease, so plan on making decisions that take your French Bulldog puppy's needs into consideration. A healthy puppy, has a happy parent. Health Insurance is highly recommended. It offers peace of mind and is a financially responsible choice. We never plan for a trip to the ER, but we can budget for it.
With or without puppies in the nursery, we won't be allowing visitors. The puppies and our dogs health and safety take precedence. We will do all we can with video and photo's to help you make a selection. No puppy adoption is going to make us compromise their health, or the health of future generations. We take our bio-security seriously.
We handle the puppies daily, and play with them when they get to that stage of development. We want you to adopt a healthy, well socialized and playful friend. We are not a puppy mill, and we don't support them. Our home is their home. Lucky for us, we can share. Animals are God's creatures and we consider them part of our family . They are part of our family, before they become part of yours, so we love to hear back and know how they are doing.
All Dams and Sires are here for you to meet and see when you come.
We are dedicated to breeding quality French Bulldogs and offering a lifetime of support to our Frenchie Families. Over 75% of our puppies are placed into repeat homes, or referral homes. We'd like to give you a warning now, they are very addictive. One French Bulldog is just the beginning.
All puppies are registered or register-able with AKC. We place our puppies with Limited AKC registration, in other words, as pets. Every puppy comes with a Written One Year Health Guarantee.
If you are not driving distance to Shelby, North Carolina, Charlotte Douglas Airport, or Greenville Spartanburg Airport would be the closest to us. We'd be happy to meet you at the airport and make your adoption as smooth as possible. We do not ship puppy's in the cargo section, and we do not ship puppies prior to you seeing your selection, meeting us, and confirming that your baby is in good health.
We are located between Charlotte and Asheville. Allow an hour's drive time from Charlotte, If our schedule allows, we are happy to meet you part way, and save you on drive time.
Since moving to Shelby in 2012, I've taken my dogs to Dr. Eddins, at Cottonwood . Prior to that, Dr. Anton and his staff at Healthypetz handled all of my veterinary needs in Morganton. In 2018, Dr. Dixon at Boulevard Animal Hospital for our c-sections. We continue to use Dr. Eddins for our puppy wellness checks and regular veterinary care.

If an extension is requested beyond the 8 week birthday, additional fees will be applied. Please adjust your schedules and allow us 4 weeks notice of any extension requested. A request is not a guarantee. Our schedules are already full, and we need to make arrangements on our end as well. Thank you in advance for keeping us aware of any scheduling conflicts or changes. We will do everything we can, to make sure the puppies best interests are first at hand.
One final note on the new USDA definition of a "Retail Pet Store".....because of this new law, we must continue to allow you, your potential puppy and 'getmorepets' to meet and allow you to view your puppy selection prior to final payment.
Thank you for considering one of our babies
