Families looking for a therapy puppy for sale, or a service puppy for sale, want nothing less than a healthy, well-bred puppy, from health-tested parents.  Look no further than dog breeders at Habibi Bears in Washington State. Your new Habibi Bear will arrive  trained per your personal needs and ready to become part of your family with minimal effort on your part. Now your family can enjoy all the magic a new puppy brings to your life without most of the early hassles that often accompany raising a new puppy.


Our Breeding Program
The Habibi breed is unlike other hybrid with very unique characteristics exclusive to the breed.   The Habibi is not available anywhere else, and nobody has our special formula that was 25+ years in the making!  Our breed was developed  with the sole  purpose of fulfilling their job as a therapy, facility, service, and ES dog.   Our breeding program has a specific system we have developed over a quarter of a century to help our puppies be the best companion for our special needs clients.   Our focus is quite different,  as we are a private breeder and rarely allow our dogs to be placed with the general public.   We work closely with our families in placing the correct puppy with the right environment, so it can reach its full potential as a therapy or emotional support dog.   We provide ongoing education and  support to keep in touch with our families while providing breed appropriate lessons and advice that have been developed with our little dogs in mind. We have spared no cost when it comes to the care and raising of our adults ....and puppies alike.  

What does health testing mean and why is this important to you in selecting a puppy?  
We have been involved in dog fancy for the major part of our lives.  We have a background in showing and raising champion AKC dogs.  In the past, our dogs have been invited to Eukanuba and we had the top 5 dog in the nation in our breed.  This background  was an excellent training ground that sparked the desire to develop a new breed. We understand the importance of appropriate breeding pairs and the difference between a pet quality dog and breeding quality dog. As responsible breeders, we also health test our adults and our line.  

The ups and downs in finding your breeding pairs
Take into consideration the amount of time and expense it requires to health screen and clear every dog.  Some tests cannot be confirmed and finalized until the dog reaches 2 years old.  By this age we are bonded and have spared no expense in raising them, dreaming of the beautiful additions they will bring to our line!   After all this time to discover our beloved BEAUTIFUL dog is not-so-perfect, genetically speaking.  This is a huge financial and emotional loss for us that can set our breeding program back two years, if not bring it to a screeching halt.  
 
Cute is only one piece of the very large puzzle when selecting appropriate breeding stock. There are many cute dogs in this world with serious genetic abnormalities that will rear their ugly heads in later years.  Perhaps the cute dog is a carrier of a genetic disorder and passes it on to every litter.   We spend a small fortune selecting dogs from healthy champion lines, pre-screening every new dog in our breeding program. They must pass all tests in order to be considered a potential parent.  When a first time mother is bred, if she is not a good mother, or her puppies are not what we hoped for, then she is spayed and will be a beloved pet.  In the end, this experience can set us back thousands of dollars as well as bring us back to square one in finding a suitable female (Dam).  This is one of many factors why we work together as a team, and also have a few select Guardian Homes for our breeding adults.  We are able to work on two areas once; raising puppies from health screened dogs to further develop the line, while keeping our younger hopefuls in the sidelines as they mature to adulthood and  receive their health clearances.

Puppy Guarantee Available to You
Our Contract protects us and our puppies, and our Puppy Guarantee protects your puppy and you.  It is available to download and digitally sign, for future reference for all of us.

Contract
All our puppies are always placed on a spay/neuter contract. In addition, we will ask that the puppy or dog be returned to us if you find you are no longer able to care for it or cannot find a suitable home, and agree to never take one of our puppies to a shelter.  If we ever suspect abuse or neglect of one of our puppies, we reserve the right to repossess the puppy and re-home it in a suitable home.  As advocates for our Habibi Bears, we are committed to ensuring all puppies produced by our breeding program are cared for and loved for the entirety of their lives.

Due to the increased dangers associated with vaccination related illnesses, vaccine damage and over-vaccination, we ask that all families pre-screen prospective Vets and locate one that will follow our recommendation of not administering Lepto, or will allow you to make the decisions about which vaccines your dog is given. Don't ever let anyone scare you into aggressively vaccinating or medicating if it isn't necessary.  Be an  informed advocate for your pet. We encourage our families to partner with their veterinarian to learn how to detect signs of infection, and how to prevent contracting Lepto if it is a concern, as this vaccine has and continues to cause reactions in our breed.  Please do not apply for a Habibi if you are not able to fully understand this very important decision. Due to continued issues of families not following our protocols leading to another recent death, we will deny an application if a family doesn't agree to our requirements.  In addition, we reserve the right to revoke an approved application if the Lepto debate becomes an issue. After losing another puppy in Dec 2020, I am dedicated to preserving the lives our our puppies from vaccinosis and establishing this requirement.

 

Guarantee
We have a lifetime commitment to all of the puppies we breed, and the families that love them.   We love our close knit family, and provide lots of special training and help along the way.   This breed will capture your heart, and we want to keep in touch and hear how our little ones are doing!  We are not a breeder that gives you a puppy and you never hear from us again.  We are always available for every family for the lifetime of their dog, so it’s important that we have an open line of communication.

Our Breeding Program and Recommendations for the dogs we produce
We carefully screen our dogs and their lines for known genetic or health issues and diseases.  We  are advocates for  Holistic Veterinary Care and a holistic diet,  both have proven over the years to be extremely beneficial for our dogs.  We give detailed instructions about our recommendations to all of our families, but only some have chosen to go the extra mile and do as we suggest.  This group has reported over the years how symptom free, healthy and long living their dogs have been, in contrast with varied reports from  other families that have chosen to  take their chances with other methods. We are seeing an alarming increase of vaccine related illnesses, food allergies and overweight dogs resulting from poor quality food sources and administration of vaccinations that are known to cause illness and reactions to our breed.   Indeed, as the breeder of these puppies, we are not pleased to read the emails about our pups becoming ill from deadly cocktails of unnecessary vaccines, medications and flea treatments--administered IN ONE VISIT by the family Vet!  Knowing that most of these families are simply trusting the judgment of their veterinarian, we feel it is even more important to emphasize the importance of advocating for your pet, and we believe in full disclosure on this topic.  Without all the information, it is difficult to make educated choices.

In 2011, we decided it was time to find a way to encourage families to be pro-active and take part in the choices they make for their dog's health.  

We have pre-screened our adult dogs, and use the testing results as a guide in our breeding program.  Tests are a valuable tool to help us use/choose the healthiest dogs possible.  Knowledge of the background of the breeding dogs is equally important. That being said, if at any time during your guarantee, your puppy suffers from a serious, hereditary or congenital defect that is life threatening or will seriously impair the pup/dogs quality of life, we will stand behind our breeding and offer you replacement puppy of equal value, while NOT requiring you to return the older dog, as we realize bonding has already taken place.

    • It is essential that only one vaccine is given at a time, not 5 or 7 as is commonly done.  The more vaccines given at once, the greater the risk of vaccine associated damage: including catching the very disease that you are trying to vaccinate against.

This Guarantee is for our families that have chosen to follow our vaccination protocols, keep their puppy on the recommended diet,  following our preventative instructions to keep their dog in great health, and a healthy weight.  We do follow up and monitor all puppies, in order for this guarantee to remain in effect.  Auto-ship of the food is required, and yearly health exams by a pre-screened veterinarian.

Please note, if at any time a puppy is given the Lepto vaccine, all guarantees are void.
We have seen this vaccine cause severe vaccinosis in our puppies and dogs in the past, and we do not recommend this vaccine under any circumstance.  It is an unstable vaccine, found to be only partially effective--not covering all strains of Lepto.  It is also a short lived vaccine and can cause severe reactions and lasting complications or death in puppies.  Not only in our breed but in most breeds.  Lepto vaccine is immuno-supressive to puppies less than 16 weeks of age.  Therefore, giving this vaccine to your dog will void our health guarantee.

Our Guarantee doesn't cover anything related, or possibly related to short or long-term complications due to vaccines given or not given.  This decision is a personal choice for each family, understanding the risks involved either way.
