Fun Fact! 

We have a livestream webcam that allows waitlisters and puppy buyers to watch their puppies be born and grow on! We use wyze cameras and they have a convenient app to watch the puppies on. The camera is on and available to waitlisters/puppy buyers from when the bitch starts whelping to until the last puppy goes home.
