i am getting a NAID pup in two weeks so i cant really tell you about their "hypoallergenic-ness" lol but personally, i would look somewhere else, rather than Majestic View. i know that they are the "founders" but she is also pretty rude to many of her customers.
i was planning on getting a pup from her. she told me that she would have two litters that i could pick a puppy from and soon after i sent in my $150 deposit... i regretted it...
turned out that "all of the pups from the litters were already taken" but i still remained nice for a little bit, asking her how long until the next litters and every reply back was rude and short, like i wasnt worth her time. one of my friends i met online that was interested in getting a NAID also emailed Karen to get on the waiting list, and Karen replied back that she should get a poodle! all she asked was if she could get on the waiting list and how long she would have to wait for a pup of a litter that Karen herself could chose! she doesnt care about her dogs, they are always caged outside with little attention from what i have heard from many other Majestic customers i have talked to.
and if Taza came from her with parvo... well, parvo is not usually found in just one dog, it is most always transfered from dog to dog, mostly puppies. i would be careful with Majestic View.
i am getting my pup from Terra Pines. the breeders there really care about there dogs. they dont have nearly as many breeding dogs wich garuntees that they get plenty of attention, unlike Majestic who have dozens of dogs and dozens of litters. sure fewer litters mean a longer wait but they truely give the pups the attention they need, bringing them inside to be part of the family like they should!
they are also really nice people, sending long updates every few days about my pup Tala Koda and pictures too! they also care about the wellbeing of the dog even after they leave their home, not allowing shipping alone for it can traumatize a pup at the early stages of puppyhood and can make the pup more scared. they even offer to meet halfway or at an airport with the puppy (they have to be carryon if you fly in). they dedicate an entire section of their site for past litters and for people to send in pics of their dogs at home and its really nice to see that.(http://terrapines.com/past_litters.htm)
over all, like i said before, i would be carefull of Majestic View....
oh and my friend is also getting a pup from Terra Pines this saturday, they were nice and called her up about a puppy that was available and just chatted a bit getting to know her. she was really nice =)
i dont want to discourage you from getting a NAID, from what i have read and seen from Tala in the pics and from MANY other NAID owners (of course with any breed of dog, there were the bad experiences, but look at the APBT, they have so many bad responses but from the right owners who actually take the time to care for them and train them right, they can be the best dog for any family... i should know: i own one! and she has never been aggressive, besides once when she was protecting me but that was actually GOOD! lol) they are really friendly dogs and playful too. and as with any large breed of dog, i would be carefull with them around your kids, as they can be a little too rough.. but if taught right, any dog can be good with kids, they just have to be around them from puppyhood and supervised until the kids get bigger.
well, hope this helped, i realy want you to get the best experience out of your NAID pup if you do in fact get one =)
