Because of the vast amount of inquiries we receive (some serious, some just “looking”), we require a $200 non-refundable deposit to reserve a puppy and/or to be on a waiting list for a future litter. Customers will be able to choose their puppies in the order of which the deposits were received. The deposit money will be applied to the original puppy price. We reserve the right to refuse the sale of a puppy to anyone, for ANY reason we may have, without explanation. The remaining balance will be due at the time of delivery or pick up. If your puppy is flying out, the total amount due and shipping fee must be received seven business days prior to flight.
If a deposit is placed for a planned litter or before a pregnancy is confirmed, please know that there is always a possibility of the pregnancy not taking place. We do put forth our very best efforts to keep our dogs healthy and they are usually quite fertile animals. However, artificial insemination does reduce the chances of pregnancy, so occasionally we will have a “miss”. Sometimes, this is due to the fact that a dam naturally knows they need a “break”. If this happens, we will automatically transfer you to their next litter. Most of our females have a 5-9 month heat cycle. We plan on retiring our dogs at bout 5-6 years of age.
Please note: With each deposit, we are willing to place customers on a maximum of two reserve lists at a time. We ask that you decide which litter you want a puppy from by the time the first litter turns four weeks of age.
If a customer is set on having a puppy from one specific female and she does not have a litter within 18 months of the date the deposit was placed, we will offer a refund of the deposit amount ($200).
Deposits are TRANSFERABLE, but will expire 18 months after it is placed. In other words, if you have placed a deposit and pass up a puppy offered to you from the litter(s) you had chosen to be on, you can transfer your deposit to a different litter, but you MUST choose a puppy within 18 months. After 18 months, the deposit is no longer good and will not be refunded.
We do our best to keep our website updated and lists current. If you decide you do not want a puppy, or find a puppy elsewhere after you have placed a deposit, a courtesy call or email is greatly appreciated.
