Walk us through the process of purchasing a pup from Lil Fresh Frenchies from start to finish.
- First, I start by posting pictures and videos of the puppies.
- Whenever interest in shown in one of the available puppies, we try to have a conversation around puppies and any kind of experience with the breed.
- If all goes well he will go into our agreement/ contract
- Once the puppy is ready and payment is made the puppy can then transition into its new home with the owner.

Yes at the shows you will see me with Yeti, my all white lilac platinum frenchie and Bam Bam, my chocolate merle frenchie.

I myself am still new, but with the support of my parents and other breeders around me that have been helping me, and my parents' knowledge we have learned a lot. We are still learning, but the biggest piece of advice I can give is you have to be willing to learn. Take notes and don’t be afraid to ask, you must be an open book.
