Co-Ownership:

Unfortunately, due to several disappointing experiences, we are no longer offering puppies for co-ownership (on breeding terms) to local homes here in Zagreb. In the past, we selected our favorite/pick-of-the-litter/keeper puppy from specific combinations, in order to have this puppy available for future breeding, rather than sell it. Due to limited space here at our family home, we decided to offer these puppies to local co-ownership homes (to raise, train and care for these puppies) as a family pet... for free (without them having to pay the usual purchase price to buy a puppy from us) but with a co-ownership contract that specified all the terms and conditions (breeding rights, etc). Then, when the co-ownership puppies came of age, we financed all of the necessary health testing for these dogs to qualify for breeding.

For the most part, our co-ownership families were all lovely people who were all willing and able to accommodate our breeding plans, in accordance with our co-ownership contract, and we made some good friends over the past few years. This system worked well for a while but, sadly, one or two bad apples has ruined this opportunity for everyone. We can no longer take the risk to give away valuable puppies/future breeding dogs for free, and finance all the necessary (and expensive) health testing, thanks to some unscrupulous individuals and their unconscionable conduct. Therefore, from now on, we will only be offering older/retired ex-breeding dogs (already sterilized) for free, to suitable family homes here in Zagreb or nearby. If/when we have such adult dogs available, we will make a public announcement and start accepting applications in order to screen responsible local pet homes.
