Deposits


If you wish to give a forever home to one of our puppies, the first step is to fill out the  puppy questionnaire,  then for us to discuss your particular interest in the breed and to  answer any  questions you may have. This generally takes place through email so we  have it for our records.  Once we have discussed what you are looking for in a puppy and if you  wish to place a deposit on a current litter, you will be asked to  look over the deposit information below.


Please view our policies page before committing to adopt a puppy  from us.


Deposit Information:


$500, applied toward the purchase price of an individual puppy, will  be paid as a deposit to guarantee the puppy will be held for you  until we designate the puppy is ready to be re-homed (generally 9 weeks  of age going to local homes and 10 weeks if shipped to you via  the airline).  We do not hold puppies for individuals without deposits being placed.  Inquiries come in at various times and a puppy that  is available one day could be spoken for the same or next day.


GENERAL INFORMATION We begin taking deposits when the puppies are a  week or two old and once we  have taken photos of them to upload to our website. We typically take  photos on the birth week, then at 3, 5, and 7 weeks of age and  also provide weekly milestone updates via email as they grow. Puppies  can generally start going to new homes at 9 weeks of age (10 weeks  if shipped). The exact transfer dates will be determined by us as the  breeder.  The health and safety of the puppies is our first priority.  


PAYMENT METHODS   For deposits we accept all payment forms accepted through PayPal (credit  card, bank transfer, etc.) as well as cashier's checks and  money orders sent to our mailing address with USPS signature or delivery  confirmation. We are no longer able to take personal or  business checks for any part of the transaction due  to the time it takes them to clear and unfortunate past issues with fraudulent checks. If the deposit is mailed we will hold your choice of puppy  while the deposit is in transit when tracking is provided.


FINAL PAYMENT The balance remaining may be paid by cash in person  at the time of pickup in person, or via PayPal, cashier's check, or  money  order prior to pickup or the shipping date. Please note that it may take  up to 3 business days for a PayPal payment to clear and you  will not be able to take your puppy home until it goes through. Cash is the only payment form we accept for final  payment made in person. All payments must clear before the puppy is transferred to the buyer, including any necessary shipping and/or  holding fees.

Additional Information

  • There are no refunds on deposits  unless the transaction is voided on our end or the puppy becomes   unavailable due to an unforeseen circumstance. This deposit signifies  the intent on the part of the Buyer to complete purchase  of the puppy  and should be thoughtfully considered beforehand. This is a dedication  for the lifetime of the dog and is a  big commitment which we do not  wish anyone to rush into. If circumstances arise where the Buyer is  unable to complete purchase  or decides not to complete purchase for any  reason, the deposit amount may be transferred to our next available  litter only  (regardless of parentage), but no refund will be issued. 


  • The  puppy is not owned by the Buyer until payment is completed in full, the  purchase agreement contract has been signed,  and the puppy is  physically transferred to the Buyer. Until this is completed, the Seller  reserves the right to void this  transaction for any reason at any  time.
     
  • We  strive to provide loving forever homes to every puppy we  produce and  by adopting a puppy from us you are making a  commitment for the  lifetime of the puppy. If unfortunate circumstances  arise where you are  unable to  care for your puppy or choose to find your puppy a new home,  we hope you  will contact us in assisting with new placement. However,  we do  not "buy puppies back" from their forever homes. The deposit and   purchase of a puppy signifies an agreement that you will care for  the  puppy for the extent of their life and is a big commitment that  should  be considered before bringing them home.
     
  • We gladly hold puppies longer if we are requested to do  so. Beginning  the day the puppies turn 11 weeks old, a charge of $10 a  day  will be  added to the balance owed for vaccinations, food, and boarding.  We do  feel it is in the best interest of the puppy to be  in their new homes  once they are ready to leave because they need the  bonding and  socializing of their forever home.  
     
  • We  reserve the right to hold a puppy longer for any  reason if we feel it  is in the puppy's best interest. If we decide a  puppy should  be held  longer, no further charges will be incurred. 


We  raise our dogs and puppies out of our home and are not a  kennel  facility. We do not allow visitors to our home any longer  due to the  spread of canine communicable disease, and issues with people coming when we're not at home. This litter will be  picked up  locally (unless shipped) when ready to go to new homes.   


REGISTRATION & PUPPY QUALITIES DEFINED  Puppy prices  may differ due to parentage, markings, size, etc. or  whether full  registration is purchased. All of our puppies  come with  American Kennel Club registration papers provided upon  transfer of the  puppy to the new owner. The registration papers can be  filled  out by  the new owner either on the AKC website or mailed in to the AKC  to  finalize registration.
 

  • AKC Limited Registration  is for dogs sold as companion dogs (pets). They are eligible to compete  in all AKC sponsored events such as Obedience,  Tracking, Field Trials, Hunting Tests, Lure Coursing, Agility, Earthdog,  etc. but they cannot be bred or shown in an AKC conformation dog show.  When they  are registered under your name you still receive a pedigree and all  other information pertaining to their breed. Companion dogs may be show  potential or they may have minor cosmetic flaws in accordance with breed  standard which may impede them from being considered show potential. These minor  cosmetic flaws (such as too much white, small kink in tail, etc) do not have an impact on health.   There is more information on the AKC website about Limited Registration  here: Registration Information.


  • With AKC Full Registration you have the Limited Registration benefits plus you can show them in AKC sponsored conformation dog shows and you have full  control over breeding rights. In accordance with this, show  potential puppies have attributes that would potentially allow them to  compete in AKC sponsored dog shows or to be bred  according to AKC  rules. They are generally clear from undesirable cosmetic "flaws" that you would not want present if you chose to show the dog and/or wanted to breed them in the future. 


All of our puppies are sold as companion dogs, meaning we do not guarantee a fitness to be shown/bred at a later date, but  with AKC Full Registration  you have the option of  choosing to show or breed them. It may be available to established breeders or  those who can  verify they have done the proper research to be  considered.
