NO as they are mixed breeds, we will not guarantee that
DO YOU KNOW THE EXACT SIZE?
Again as rescues with little or no back ground. No size is based on breed characteristics we see.
DO YOU KNOW THE PARENTS? and MY ADOPTED DOGS BDAY?
Sometimes we do if that info is given to the shelter and or we have the mother transferred to us, but we rarely if ever know the sire of the litter. So again, these are rescued dogs
CAN I VISIT A DOG OUTSIDE OF YOUR EVENT TIMES?
All RMPR puppies are currently in foster care so the only times to see them are at our events. Each dog is fostered, and our foster families all have lives and full-time jobs. If you have specific questions about our dogs, we ask that you please come to our event to speak with the pups foster, they will answer any and all specific questions.

DO I HAVE TO PAY AN ADOPTION FEE?
RMPR is a nonprofit organization and runs on its adoption fees. We do not rehome dogs for free or adopt for free, as then we cannot care for or go and get the animals to bring them here.
