We are delighted to announce the safe arrival of four puppies, two little boys and two little girls, to our home.
The happy mother is our Indigo, Appletor She’s a Rainbow and the proud father is Kindle, Champion Moretonia Kindle Fire.
Our first litter in more than two years – planned and conceived long before the world suddenly took this strange turn with the Corona virus.
Because the lockdown has changed everyone’s circumstances, we have made the decision to ask everyone who has previously enquired about Appletor pups to please contact us again, to let us know whether the changes mean that this would still be a good time for you to bring a pup into your life.
We welcome these little people to the world at a very unusual time for everyone. For us at Appletor the whole family spending more time at home means that these babies will be able to have extra attention, and we are creatively planning to ensure that they will be able to be properly socialised when the time comes, no matter what challenges the world presents.
Setting unexpected developments aside, these puppies should be ready to come to their new homes toward the end of June, and as things stand would need to be delivered by us to their new family, in line with government guidance. Because corona may mean we cannot meet in person, we will be on a big learning curve to make use of modern communication methods to make sure that we can get to know potential families properly, and allow you to see for yourselves how our pups live and grow in our home.
If you feel that this may be a good time to consider a pup, we are asking interested parties to get in touch with us again. Please let us know a little about where and how you live, both during lockdown and what this may look like when restrictions are lifted. Let us know what you are looking for in a dog, and why you feel an Appletor English Toy Terrier puppy might be a good fit. This introduction will be the beginning of a lengthy process of getting to know one another, so that we can all be confident that this puppy will bring a whole lifetime of joy and love.
We will always be here for all of our pups, no matter what. We use contracts and KC endorsements to ensure that they remain protected throughout their lives.
