Upon pick up of puppy, we ACCEPT ONLY CASH for final payment. *******IF YOU SHOW UP WITH ANYTHING ELSE, YOU'LL BE SENT TO THE LOCAL ATM TO GET CASH or will have to do a ZELLE transfer from you phone or computer, or you may forfeit your deposit!******
We want ALL prospective buyers to come visit our home. Visitors are allowed free access to handle our dogs & puppies to see their health, quality, and personality.
Pup's housebreaking is the buyer's responsibility, as are all additional puppy shots.
We use and highly recommend NuVet Plus Vitamins! Go to http://www.nuvet.com/45641 to order before you get your puppy home, or if you just want to learn more about it. Pups are on Royal Canin Mini Starter. Be sure to buy a small bag before you bring puppy home, I don't want puppy food changed in the first month.. READ THE INGREDIENTS LABELS!! ** I don't recommend flour based dog treats, dogs get fat on empty calories but who is blamed? The breeder! Treats CAN be great for training though, so buy meat or veggie/fruit based treats from PawTree or why make your own homemade treats? SUPER EASY TO MAKE, grill or saute beef liver, (or any other red meat) until dried out. Cool, cut into small cubes and freeze in freezer bags. Many dogs also like raw or dehydrated fruits and vegetables such as raw carrots and dehydrated sweet potatos. Most of my dogs love to chew on deer antlers. Always do research to make sure what you plan to feed is safe for your dog.
For pet insurance, we recommend AKC's free month. I would like all my puppy buyers to cover their puppy for the first month, after that it's up to the buyer.
So you've decided you want one of our pups? You've called or emailed me to talk everything over with me, asked me to hold a pup until you can get a deposit to me, and want to know what to do next..... (Step 1) Read this ENTIRE page THOROUGHLY, then EMAIL your name, address, home, cell & emergency phone numbers, as well as a statement saying you have read & agree to all terms on my site as of the day of your email. At this point, I'll start holding your puppy or your place on the waiting list.
(Step 2) A non-refundable holding fee or deposit of $500 will hold (goes toward purchase price).
(3) We now accept Zelle and Venmo, cash app, personal check by UPS, PRIORITY mail with a tracking number)... (we also accept bank wire or walmart to walmart transfer if that's easier for you). For all mailed deposits, email me the tracking number within 1 business day after commitment to buy, unless we've mutually agreed on other terms in advance. It's imperative that you put your payment in the mail in a timely manner or you risk losing your puppy. **** REMEMBER: Your payment is a legal & binding contract & states you agree with the terms set forth on this site on the day mailed, INCLUDING THE GUARANTEE, so READ IT ALL THOROUGHLY! Deposit fee is non-refundable unless your puppy is not healthy at it's vet check. If circumstances change and you can't get a puppy when you planned and you let us know in a timely manner, we will put your money toward a future litter (at that point, your deposit is good for an additional year).
If (through no fault of mine) the buyer can't get their puppy when it's ready to go, buyer will incur $50 per week boarding fees. Healthy average sized pups are ready to go at 9 weeks (tinies have to stay longer). A week after I deem they're ready to go, if they're still not picked up, boarding fees go into effect, buyer will be informed well in advance so that they won't have any surprise expenses. This rule does not apply to older puppies or dogs that are sold at an older age.
NOTE: IF YOU MUST BRING YOUR DOGS WHEN YOU VISIT, PLEASE CONFINE THEM TO YOUR VEHICLE (THIS IS FOR YOUR DOG'S PROTECTION AS WELL AS OUR'S)! I have two large dogs that may accidentally hurt your dogs, not to mention the possibility of passing new strains of bacteria back and forth! It's best not to bring your pets when you come to pick up your puppy.
