Stabys are a fairly rare breed with the breeding and sale closely monitored by the various Stabyhoun Associations ( Holland, Sweden, Finland, North America etc). If you are located in North America try visiting www.stabyhouns.org. This association will be able to answer the more specfic questions and arrange adoption. I have a Staby and he is extremely quick to pick up on commands, loving, playful and low maitenance . Since the various associations are so careful with the breeding these dogs enjoy a hardy healthy life. Hope this helps?
