If one of our puppies has won your heart and you want to place a deposit down, please read information below on Deposits. Also, please mail us with any questions you may have and kindly tell us a little about you. Naturally, we're protective of our puppies and make sure they're going to a great pet home and/or that the puppy and owner are a great match, so please don't be offended if we ask you a lot of questions or not reply to emails/text that ask only the price and not give us any idea of who is inquiring. We assume these kind of emails/texts are from puppy mills as price tends to be the first question asked and the only important thing to them and we fiercely guard our pups and dogs from getting into the wrong hands or from those who cannot afford to provide all the needs a puppy/dog require to have a healthy long life. Please keep in mind, there are many dogs in shelters who need a loving and responsible home and someone willing to open their hearts and arms to them.
All of our puppies come with a 12 month guarantee from life threatening genetic defects and AKC Limited Registration (unless otherwise stated) which means for "pet only"/no breeding rights. Papers will be provided once a spay/neuter certificate has been issued by a veterinarian. We also ask that we be listed as an emergency contact once a microchip is acquired from your vet. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.
We reserve the right to get first choice of any litter. We do not take deposits to hold a pup until the puppy is born and everyone on the list (first come/first serve basis) has been contacted. At that time, they will choose their puppy or not. In some cases, we have to wait a week or so to determine color but pups must be chosen once deposit is received and no later than 5 weeks old and puppies on hold must be paid in full by 9 weeks of age/before pick up or at pick up which is no later than 10 weeks of age unless other arrangements have been made. Keep in mind, others will be placing deposits and will be ready to choose the pup available. You will be notified when your puppy is ready to come to its new home. Our pups must be at least 8 weeks old to leave; however, I will not let him/her go until I feel the puppy is ready. We will also continue their vaccinations and deworming while they are with us. If you have not made arrangements to pick up your puppy, we will assume that this puppy will be available for others.
To hold a pup of your choosing, we require a $200 non-refundable deposit to hold the puppy of your choice. This deposit is your guarantee that I will not place the puppy of your choice with someone else and an agreement that you will sign a contract for and be committing to adopt the puppy you chose. Deposit is only refundable if a puppy is not available for you or something happens to the puppy while in our care. We take PayPal or cash. To place a deposit on PayPal, please make it to firstname.lastname@example.org and there is a 4% fee you need to add for its use. The remaining balance is due in cash at pick up of your puppy (which is around 8-9 weeks or when they're ready).
We offer a one year health guarantee against "life threatening" genetic defects which is to be determined by two veterinarians (yours and ours). This does not cover communicable diseases in which the puppy caught in the new owner's care or unforeseen health issues that are non life threatening. Veterinary care is part of the responsibility and privilege of dog ownership from the time adoption of a pup or adult dog goes home. The buyer has three days (excluding weekend days the vet is not open) in which to have their pup examined to see if there are any concerns. We highly recommend Pet Insurance before you bring your puppy home (there are some Pet Insurance companies that offer a free trial which is good to sign up before bringing your pup/dog home) and not exposing a puppy to dog parks, unclean yards, vet clinics, pet supply stores/public places until all vaccinations have been complete ( 18 weeks and beyond). It's vital to ask your veterinarian's office if any patients with highly contagious illnesses were in the clinic that day and make arrangement around that (they will be willing to come out to your car if you ask). Always closely monitor your pup/dog after a vaccination shot and have Benedryl on hand in case of a local reaction. We give the 5 way puppy vaccine and not the Lepto shot at least until 12 weeks of age (due to dachshunds commonly reacting to this shot) unless the area in which you reside, is having an increased amount of incidents of Lepto. In that case, we recommend a Lepto shot at 12 weeks and beyond. PLEASE ask your vet about the Lepto shot for 12 weeks and beyond. We provide and require a contract signing, vaccinations/deworming records or any vet records before our pups leave our care. We do not knowingly sell our pups to pet stores or what we call an industry/ puppy mill.
We highly recommend your homework be done before bringing your puppy home. Know what to expect, read and watch You Tube dog training videos such as Caesar Milan-Dog Whisperer -a great one for subjects dealing with: house training/pee pad training, yard training, biting and eating things they shouldn't eat, barking/separation anxiety, etc. Lots of love, patience, time and consistency is essential for the first year of their life. They each have their own unique personality and have been given a great start here in their first 8 weeks of their life. If for some reason you can no longer keep your pup you adopted from us, they're welcome back with us and/or we can help you place him or her in a responsible forever new home.
We do not ship our puppies. On occasion and if we're able to, we can drive to meet for pup pick up but no further than 60 miles away (unless discussed and agreed on another arrangement) and for a fee of $75. You may choose to fly here, pick your pup up and have it fly on board with you. You will need a health certificate in order to fly which is $65 and a crate will need to be pre ordered and shipped to my home so that I may begin training your pup in the crate it will go home in. Thank you!
Our puppies go home at 9 weeks of age if they're ready to go. Any pups requested to stay beyond 10 weeks of age is
$15 per day for boarding, but your pup must be picked up no later than 12 weeks of age. A date will be set for pup pick up once your puppy is chosen. Thank you!
Our puppies are priced depending on the color, coat, gender and pedigree you are interested in. All of our dogs and puppies are AKC registered. We also have some nice adults offered for homes on an occasion. We would need to discuss this with you in depth. They would be spayed/neutered and teeth cleaned before leaving our care and the rehoming fee is around $350 and up depending on age and for the vet care cost incurred preparing him or her for his new home.
