Puppy pet prices vary dependent upon the color and range from $3500-$4000. Puppies are sold with a limited AKC pet registration.
How does the process of ownership work?
Since I am a small hobby breeder I do not always have puppies, therefore I typically have a waiting list started for upcoming planned litters. I do not require a deposit to be placed on the waiting list. However being on the waiting list does not guarantee anyone a puppy. Being that I do not have many litters a year I do not feel comfortable accepting money from interested buyers on a puppy that does not exist.
Waiting List Process and deposit
Once a litter is born, puppies are thriving, and meeting some milestones that I expect I begin to look at my waitlist and contact individuals one by one in order by the date in which they are added. Often individuals will ask where they are on the waiting list and this can be difficult to answer because many people have gender and color preferences that may not be available once puppies are born. Example: The first 5 people on my list are waiting for a black brindle male and only one female black brindle is born. When I contact an individual I share with them puppy availability. In the event they are still interested I send them pictures & videos to help them make a decision. If they decide to move forward I require a $500 nonrefundable deposit to hold the puppy with the remanding balance due at pick up. Prior to accepting a deposit I require a phone appointment to go over any questions an interested family may have for myself as well as questions that I will have for them.
After deposit is placed
Once a deposit is placed that puppy is considered reserved. From that point on I will send weekly updates and pictures/videos of the puppy so the new family can watch them grow. Once the puppy approaches 4-5 weeks I welcome families to come meet their puppy and an appointment is scheduled. I do this to avoid any outside exposure of germs as the puppies are still very small even at 4-5 weeks. When new families come I spend as much time needed to educate them on the puppies needs as they go home. We go over any questions the new family has, I share recommendations , training advice, continued vet care, etc. In the event a new family finds it a challenge to make it for the 4-5 week visit we will arrange a phone conference to go over all the information instead. I allow my puppies to go home at 8 weeks old.
Deposit payments can be made electronically via PayPal, QuickPay, or Zelle. I will also take personal checks for a deposit but I ask that it is mailed out within 24 hours.
I ask that final payments be made in cash or a bank issued certified check. I will accept electronic payments as final payment however this has to be arranged prior to pick up as some applications have limits per day and others take several days for funds to clear.
