Adoption Process

Our Adoption Process

Finding The Right Dog

Getting to know your family

The process of adopting a puppy/dog can be an intimidating or overwhelming experience.  Here at Dixon Acres, we want this experience to be an easy and pleasant one from start to finish.  Please keep in mind that a completed application does not guarantee you are getting a puppy.  We use this tool to help get to know you and what you are looking for in a pet.

Browse our site and educate yourself about who we are our dogs and general breed-specific information.  We will provide you with as much information we can to help prepare you for your future addition. Check out our links page.

Our Process

 Fill out our online questionnaire.  This is not meant to be intimidating or intrusive.  We want to get to know you and what you are looking for in a dog. This will also help you to understand whether or not you are prepared for puppy ownership. Dog ownership is a big commitment and as responsible breeders, our goal is to provide each of our puppies with a loving forever home and to assist our families in making this a smooth and pleasant experience. 

Getting Started

Determine which current or upcoming litter you would like a puppy from. Once we have received your application, we will then get in touch with you by email and discuss which litter you are interested in and any other details or questions you may have. We have people reserving up to a year or two in advance so it’s never too early to reserve!

Please note: You will not be able to pick a specific puppy from a litter at the time of reservation. Choice of puppy is given by order of deposit, choice of sex when the puppy completes the temperament testing (which is done at 6.5 to 7.5 weeks of age).
