December 19, 2019 - Nemex II (round worm medication) 3cc

Lois has given us permission to sell all of the puppies in this litter through DireWolf Dogs of Vallecito, LLC's waiting list, therefore, all puppies are for sale through DireWolf Dogs of Vallecito, LLC at this time. That being said, three puppies show very high prices as you can see. These puppies are exceptional for our needs within the breed and we would like to keep them within the breed if they do not otherwise acquire a family with the means to purchase them at the stated price. However, we would consider co-owning Murdoch with the right family for half buy-in. This means that the co-owning party would share the cost of the puppy by half ($3500) to "buy in" to a co-ownership partnership contract where the breeder receives specific, exclusive, and full rights to breed him at the appropriate time. If you are interested in potentially considering a co-ownership with DireWolf Dogs of Vallecito, LLC, please let us know through email.
