Reserving a puppy
Our waiting list is usually over a year in wait for puppies. Puppies do come available though, as people decide to pick a different puppy or a different litter. You are welcome to get on the waiting list for notifications of upcoming litters by sending us your contact information. If you would like to hold your place in line, we require a 200.00 deposit. You can do this thru PayPal or Venmo on our web site. Placing a deposit on a litter, will put you on the pick list ahead of others who have not placed a deposit.
You can reserve a puppy in the litter of your choice by submitting a non refundable deposit. This deposit is transferable to another litter if the puppy of your choice ie; red merle male, does not come available.
Reserves for a specific puppy of a litter are by first deposit received. Example, two people want a Black tri female, the person who gave a deposit first will get first pic of the puppy they reserved. If there is only one black tri female in the litter, then the other party will be allowed to move their deposit to the next litter of their choice, or pick a different puppy from the original litter.
We have many people wanting the same puppy, once you pick, we have to inform the others on the waiting list the puppy is no longer available. Do to this, once your puppy has been picked, your deposit is no longer transferable. If the puppy is not paid in full and picked up on pick up date, you will be notified and have 24 hours to contact us or the next person in line will be notified the puppy is again available and your deposit will not be refunded.
When submitting a deposit, add the litter, color and sex of the puppy you want to reserve.
Once the Dam of the litter you are interested in is pregnant, you will receive an email from us notifying you. Once the puppies are born, we send information and pictures throughout the process. Puppy pick time is 5 weeks of age. We wait until 5 weeks of age, so that you can better see the personality of the puppies before deciding on which one to take home.
As a dog owner, a parent, a rancher, a neighbor, and so many other things, we want a dog that is smart, loving, protective, does not bother the neighbors, takes care of our children and is easy to live with.
We believe when you take a dog home from our ranch you would want the same, so we strive to breed the best.
What you can expect when you take a puppy home from our ranch...
*A dog that will follow right by your side without a leash or training.
*A dog that will only bark at intruders or to alert you of danger.
*A respectful dog that will act as you would expect in and out of your home.
*A dog that will stay on the property and not run when the gate is left open.
*A dog that will do anything to make the kids happy.
* A dog that will give you obsessive love.
* A dog that takes almost no training, yet learns by watching you.
* A dog that never wants to upset you.
*A dog that will lay in wait for your every move.
*A dog that's loyalty is so strong, its only focus is your family.
We cannot say enough about these dogs and how amazing they are. We believe everyone should have a TRUE Aussie in their home. If you do not know the TRUE Aussie mind, you are missing SO much.
