How do I go about adopting a puppy?
If you are interested in a puppy please fill out the adoption form located on my website. Please fill this out in detail as the information you supply will help me decide what puppy is best for you. If your adoption form is approved I will contact you. I then require a $200 (non -refundable deposit) to reserve a puppy.
How do you decide what puppy is best for me?
Based on what you have told me in your adoption form and from talking to you on the phone.
Say you are looking for a "Male, with more white on the face and a quite personality" Once the pups are 6 weeks old I'll let you know which puppy/puppies fit into this catagory. Then you can decide which one you like out of the ones I have suggested.
When can I see my puppy?
I post pictures of all the puppies when they are first born, then again at 3 weeks and once more around 6 weeks of age. At 6 weeks we will decide which puppy is best for you. You can visit the puppies once they are 7 weeks old and have received their first vaccine. Before 7 weeks they are very succeptable to dieases. I have heard of many parvo, kennel cough and canine flu cases and can't take the chance with my babies. My job as a breeder is to breed happy, healthy dogs and I take every measure possible to make sure this happens. I understand that a lot of people want to meet the parents and see the kennel before they purchase a puppy for this reason I have added many references to my website. Most of my references have seen my dogs and visited my kennel. Please feel free to email my references if you have questions about how I keep my kennel and my dogs.
Do you ship and is it safe?
Yes, I can ship the puppies. The price is $350 and up depending on the airline.. This price includes airfare, a crate and an international health certificate. As far as I'm concerned shipping is SAFE! We have been shipping puppies for a long time now and we've never had a problem. The airlines take great care of them and they always arrive safe and sound. If you are in driving distance we would love to meet you!
Does the puppy have to be quarantined if I'm from the States?
No, we will get your puppy an international health certificate. You will need to show customs the international health certificate and the vaccination record. They will look at it and send you on your way. It's very simple!
Do you have a contract?
Yes, please email me if you would like a copy.
Do you require the dog to be spayed/neutered?
Yes, every puppy needs to be spayed/neutered at or before 6 months of age. If you would like a dog for breeding please let me know as I do make acceptions in certain situations.
What is your health guarantee?
We guarantee the dog for 1 year against hip dysplasia. A certificate from OFA or OVC must be shown to us stating the dog has moderate or severe hip dysplasia. Once we have seen that we will either replace the dog if you decide to give it back or it needs to be put down or we will refund half the purchase price if you want to keep the dog.
