How does your adoption process work?
If you are not on our waiting list for one of our babies that is the first step to becoming a potential family for one of our babies. Once we have babies we notify our waiting list and we now do an application to find the best homes possible for our babies then we will start going over applications and going down our waiting list with emails and questions and then we will move forward with a deposit then that puppy is then on hold for you. (We have the right at anytime to refuse sale to anyone we don't feel comfortable with or the right fit for our babies) Once we take a deposit we will add you to our Extended Family group on Facebook as well.
Do we allow Home visits?
We no longer allow home visits for a number of reasons. We know you want to see your new puppy, but puppies are extremely susceptible to parasites and diseases that can be deadly to them and their litter mates. We take a lot of pictures and video and we will gladly provide live videos on our Facebook page for you to see your puppy in real time! Also with parvo being such a huge factor this day in age we want to lessen the chances of it being tracked into our home. Our puppies/dogs and our families safety is our number one priority. We have numerous references if needed!
Since you don't allow home visits how will I see my puppy?
We try our best to take lots of pictures and videos and we will gladly provide live videos on our Facebook page for you to see your puppy in real time. You will never be left out of the loop on how your puppy is doing. I am ALWAYS here to answer all questions during and after the adoption of your new baby.
What do your puppies come with?
Our puppies are vet checked, fecals, wormed accordingly and have their 1st set of vaccinations. Our puppies come with a 1 year health guarantee against life threatening hereditary illness/issues (Read more about this in our Sales contract). Our puppies are sold as PETS ONLY/with NO PAPERS on spay/neuter contracts. They will also come with a goodie bag.
When can my puppy come home?
Our puppies do not leave our care until a minimum of 9 weeks old. We do all pick ups when someone is home with us as this is for our safety and the safety of our dogs/puppies. In some cases if I feel a puppy needs to stay longer I will hold them until I feel they are ready to leave my care.
When can I plan a pick up date?
Please do not plan an exact date for pick up or take off work for pick up until WE GIVE YOU AN EXACT DATE.
Do you ship or transport your puppies?
We no longer offer shipping. However, you can fly into our airport and I can meet you there with your puppy. This cost almost as much as air shipping. Depending on where you are located we may be able to meet a couple hours away to lessen the trip for our clients for a fee. However this depends on our schedule here at home along with my husbands work schedule.
What is the price of your puppies?
Our prices range from $1000 and up (this is subject to change at any time), pricing depends greatly on the line the puppy comes from, and the color/pattern. Our less common colors/patterns are in the higher range. Lower range is the basic colors such as reds, black/tans & chocolate/tans. We do not charge more or less for males & females, they are the same price regardless of gender.
