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 move to 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 a litter, we require a 200.00 deposit. You can do this thru PayPal or on our web site. Placing a deposit on a litter, will reserve you a puppy from the litter of your choice.
You can reserve a puppy in the litter of your choice by submitting a non refundable deposit. This deposit is transferable to another litter only 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 pick 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. 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, videos and pictures throughout the process. Puppy pick time is at 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. Puppies are wormed and vaccinated by state guidelines. Puppies can go home at 8 weeks of age. We send you home with training techniques, feeding and care information, health guarantee, vaccination record and access to a professional trainer who works with us.
We want to make sure you are happy with the puppy you take home from us!
