Guardian Home Program
Male and Female Available
We currently have both a male and a female in search of their guardian/forever homes. They are incredible dogs, IABCA Champions with perfect clearances in health and genetics. They are very fun and playful and want all of the snuggles and cuddles. They love to play ball, swim, and go for walks, but even more so they are looking to be you and your family's best and most loyal new companions. They would love nothing more than to be with their family, whether you are running errands here and there or staying in watching a movie on the couch. Maisy is a smaller girl at about 60 pounds and Zephyr is medium-sized at about 72 pounds. Both dogs come from a long line of multi-champions from Europe with a long line of spectacular health and longevity as well. Maisy and Zephyr are crate trained and have good manners. They know their basic obedience and do wonderful on leash. You could not ask for sweeter dogs and they are looking for their loving Guardian homes now!
Don't forget! There is no cost to you to receive one of our wonderful Guardian Program dogs!
Please read about our guardian program and what we are looking for in our guardian families below. Don't hesitate to reach out to us for more information or to schedule a visit with one of these beautiful dogs!

What we are looking for in a guardian family and Requirements:
Most importantly, we are looking for our guardian homes to welcome in another member of their family! Loving, caring, and providing for the dog is of utmost importance, as it is with all of our dogs and puppies that we send to their forever homes. Our guardians are responsible for the dog’s regular health such as: annual exams, vaccines, food, exercise, heartguard, grooming, etc. Classic Heritage would pay for any and all genetic and/ or health testing required for breeding, and all breeding related expenses. In some cases a stipend will be paid to families after litters are born and placed when more then eight puppies are produced from a litter.
There are many things that Guardian families need to consider. Guardians of females will have to be aware of heat cycles every 6-9 months and keeping their girl protected from unwanted males. The Guardian family will need to look for the signs of a heat cycle and be willing to communicate and coordinate with us to ensure a successful breeding. When males are needed for breeding, once advance notice is given, dog must be made available for breeding purposes.
Must live within one hour of our Newcastle location
Able to provide exercise and maintain the dogs health and ideal weight
At least one person in the home works from home or is a stay at home parent
Able to continue working on training and socializing
Able to provide veterinary care (non-breeding or pregnancy related vet care as these are provided by breeder) and emergency care if needed
If other dogs are in the home, the other dogs need to be spayed or neutered
Communicate with Classic Heritage about any changes, questions, concerns, or updates (ex: When your dog has come into heat, care questions, times you may be traveling with your dog and not available, or just some fun pictures and updates!)
Love to give, Commitment, and Trust
Be willing to work with us and be a fantastic dog owner for the life of your dog.
