Our standard of excellence requires the following from our breeding dams and sires:

  Reached maturity at two years of age

  Champions of record, major pointed or working titled

   OFA or PennHip certified to be free of cardiac and hip dysplasia

   CERF certified to be free of eye diseases

   Determined healthy and temperamentally sound

Fatima babies are born in our office and immediately collared and numbered in the order of their birth. Fatima personnel weigh and lovingly handle all babies on a daily basis for the first 3 weeks. During the second and fourth weeks Fatima babies are participants in early socialization development utilizing the exercise regime of Dr. Battalgia.


   Fourth week begins the first bath and grooming with exposure to dryers, clippers and nail trimmers. They continue this exercise every week thereafter.

   Fifth week begins outside activity and play in the puppy playground with exposure to cubes, tunnels, bridges and toys.

  Sixth week brings crate training, recall whistles and temperament testing.

   Seventh week brings conformation and working evaluations.

   Eight weeks culminates all evaluations and final placements to their new families.


   Fatima personnel remain available for consultation on all our puppies and adult needs. Our puppies remain our concern even though they have moved to a new home. We are always here to share your thoughts and concerns.

   We are delighted to have our dogs shown, however, our foremost concern is that every dog have a quality home with unconditional love.

   We recommend positive reinforcement basic obedience training for all puppies. Every puppy must be a Canine Good Citizen.

   Please review our Puppy Questionnaire for prospective puppy buyers.

   Puppy inquires are always welcome and handled in a courteous manner.
