Follow-up visits will be mandatory. All dogs will be spayed/neutered.  We are against breeding.
Our dogs will have been given the necessary vaccines for kennel living. All other vaccinations will be left up to individuals due to the many controversies surrounding the adverse effects of these inoculations. OWC dogs are always Rabies/DHLPP vaccinated by a licensed vet before adoptions.
