This page is designated to pinpoint our policies or "rules" that we have set with our program for purchase and our health guarantee. Our policies have not been set in place to keep control, rather because we care for our puppies and guidelines have needed to be set. This also ensures there will be no secrets or miscommunications. By having it all written down, we will all be on the same page! If you don't like some of our policies, please get in touch.
How do I buy a puppy?
Most of our litters have a list of deposits for future homes prior to them being born. This is so we can get to know our families in advance. So, if you want to get on our list for a puppy please contact us! We always do phone calls with future buyers, so we will give you a call within 48 hours (work day) of getting your contact form on our website.
Want a Puppy but not on the wait-list?
Our waitlist is priority and will always be the first to chose their puppy in the order that they appear on the list which is in order of deposit received, but that does not mean we wont have puppies. Occasionally we have a puppy that is passed up by someone on the waitlist and is offered to the public. When this happens we will send a notice out via Instagram, Facebook and make note of it on our website.
Is my hold deposit refundable?
No. Why? Our hold deposits are non-refundable because it is not fair that we turn away other people for someone who is not ready to commit to a puppy. Placing a deposit shows us your commitment, and in turn we are committing to you and holding your puppy.
Can we come visit?
No. Why? For the safety of our family, and our dogs we do not allow folks to visit our home. It is very important for us to keep our kids safe, and to keep sickness out of our home for the safety of our puppies.
When can I pick my puppy up?
Puppies can be picked up no sooner than 8 weeks of age. Why? It is very important to us that your puppy is healthy, up to date on shots, and socialized well before leaving our home. In order to do this, we believe that puppies should stay with their litter mates and mother until they are at least 8 weeks old, preferably leaving after 8 weeks of age.
Is the price negotiable?
No. Why? We have set our prices where they are in order to pay for our litters and invest in the future of our program. Our prices are average or lower than other breeders who do less for their puppies.
What happens if we cannot keep our dog/puppy?
We will take them back. Why? We raise our puppies and adore them from day one. This means we get attached to them and want the very best. We understand life happens, but we like to know where our puppies and dogs will be going, so they are not put into the wrong hands or lost to us. We prefer to find them nice homes that will keep in touch with us.
When do I fix my puppy?
All pet only puppies will be required to be neutered/spayed AFTER 12 months of age. Why? Puppies need hormones to grow correctly. In order to let this happen, puppies need the hormones they are getting while intact to grow. We require our owners to wait and give them the chance to grow before neutering or spaying them early. We also require this to prevent accidental breeding. A dog who is going to be pet only should not be left intact for accidents. This is one we can chat about if a person feels they can keep their dog intact and puppy-less.
Can I breed my dog?
If limited rights were purchased, you have agreed to not breed your dog. We do in most cases allow full rights to be purchased after the dog has grown up and health testing has been complete. We require the purchase price difference for full rights be paid for. We also require the rights to be purchased PRIOR to the dog being bred. This is not just our rule. AKC will not register a litter that is born before the dog's full rights have been obtained. So that, unfortunately, is not something I can do.
We get first pick on ALL of our litters
We have the right to refuse to sell to someone based on our own discretion.

Balance of purchase price is due at the time of delivery/pick up in cash only.
