Our Purchasing Process 


All puppy buyers are required to sign a spay/neuter contract.   Feel free to ask us to email you a copy of our Contract of Sale.
.
When emailing us, please provide an introduction about yourself and your family.  Please include the number and ages of the family members (yes the adults too) where you are located, what the earliest EXACT date you want to bring a puppy into your life, your current or past pet ownership experience, if you have any puppy training experience, what type of home you live in (rent/own; house, apartment, etc.) and if you have any size restrictions where you live.    
.
We normally do not keep/maintain an unpaid or casual wait list. We recommend you just keep an eye on the website or get on the paid reservation list when it is availalbe.  August 2020 update:  We have started to keep a causal waiting list because so many people were asking us to.  So people can get their names on the list, no money down.  When we have puppies that could be available to someone on the list, we will send out an email.  Even though this list requirest no down payment or fee, we do ask that only SERIOUS buyers request to be put on this list.    
We will start a "paid" reservation list only after puppies are born.  Ask to have us email you a copy of our Reservation List contract.  To get on the list, it requires the signed contract and a $500 fee which is non-refundable but is put towards the final price of the puppy.  People are most often placed on the list in the order in which fees are received.
When the pups are old enough to be viewed (around 6 weeks of age) then the people that are on the paid reservation list are contacted so that they can choose their puppy.  When a specific puppy is chosen, then we use our Sales and Reservation Contract and 1/2 of the purchase price is required to be paid to hold a specific puppy until it is old enough to go to it's new home.
.
Puppies are expected to be picked up when they are old enough or, if a puppy listed for sale is over 8 weeks of age, then we expect the sale to be immediate.  If you are not able to take a puppy when it is ready, then please tell us that up-front.  We can only hold a puppy for someone for a very short amount of time.   
.
We invite pre-approved serious buyers to our home on two occasions.  When they are choosing their new puppy prior to it being old enough to leave us (when pups are 5 to 7 weeks old) and the other time would be when the puppies are 8 weeks or older and are able to leave to go home with their new owners.  Visitors are by appointment only.       
.
PLEASE do not inquire about puppies if your spouse/partner has not first approved of this addition to your household.  Likewise, if you are a renter, make sure your landlord approves of your getting a "puppy".  Some will allow adult dogs, but not puppies.
