Litters of puppies are expected once or twice a year at SAGA. The breedings are carefully planned, and the puppies are raised in our home with plenty of human contact and socialization.  We take great care to place the proper puppy with the proper people and  have dogs in loving homes all over the United States.  We do not ship puppies.  Families that live a greater-than-driving-distance from us are welcome to fly into soCal and take their puppy back in the airplane cabin with them.  This has worked very well for everyone so far...


*Note:
A listing on this page is not an "advertisement" per se. Welshies will be placed only in "approved homes". The determination of what is "approved" is at the discretion of the breeder or owner.

SAGA is not a Commercial Breeder, Backyard Breeder, Puppy Mill, Broker, or Buncher. SAndra and GAry (hence SAGA) are Welsh Springer Spaniel breed fanciers, members in good standing of the Welsh Springer Spaniel Club of America, Inc., and are involved with what is usually called Hobby Breeding. We like the definition given in A Dog Owner's Guide for a Hobby Breeder:

A breed fancier who usually has only one breed but may have two; follows a breeding plan in efforts to preserve and protect the breed; produces from none to five litters per year; breeds only when a litter will enhance the breed and the breeding program; raises the puppies with plenty of environmental and human contact; has a contract that protects breeder, dog, and buyer; runs a small, clean kennel; screens breeding stock to eliminate hereditary defects from the breed; works with a breed club or kennel club to promote and protect the breed; and cares that each and every puppy is placed in the best home possible.
