Male Puppy Deposit $350

Reserve or Purchase a PUPPY

  • place a deposit to reserve a CURRENT puppy

                                              you are placed on pick list
                     You may choose to watch the website 

deposit agreement   
A deposit reserves the puppy you have chosen
guarantees that it will not be sold to anyone else.  

A deposit placed for a puppy not born is for the next successful litter(s)...
we do allow you to pass if you do not see what you are looking for...
color, sex, timing

                           Example:   ALEASH F1 or undecided future puppy

The deposit is NON-REFUNDABLE or forfeited
if you choose not to follow through with the your pick.
The deposit is a final sale,

there is no switching to another puppy. 

If the puppy is declared unfit for sale (decided BEFORE PICKUP DATE)
the deposit will be moved to the next available puppy of your choosing. 

If an unforeseen circumstance occurs
and a puppy becomes unsalable to a customer with a SOLD puppy,
they may be moved into first place pick
before the new litter is offered to customers with deposits.

The deposit is my guarantee that you will

NOT change your mind
I WILL NOT lose time, effort & money turning away other customers or explaining WHY the puppy is back on the website for sale.

If you do change your mind,
don’t want or can’t take the puppy due to unforeseen circumstances
then you have decided to forfeit your deposit...
this includes not knowing your associations landlord rules.

Failing to return phone calls,
emails or texts to SCHEDULE a pick up date
will forfeit your deposit. 

If the buyer does not contact the seller there may be a $22.00/day boarding charge added to the balance due,

any other expenses including any vet costs
if buyer does not pickup puppy by the
THINK 1 week before the agreed pick up date

(think schedule by 8 weeks of age unless stated differently)
if the buyer has NOT scheduled the pickup date,
the buyer forfeits the puppy plus any payments made on puppy. 

A deposit is required to reserve your puppy
 you can choose to watch the website. 

If you wish to schedule the pick up date after THE DATE posted
the puppy needs to be paid in full by 9 weeks of age
or agreed date between buyer and seller in written form. 

 board 1 week FREE after pickup date then $5/day
per agreement made before hand between buyer/seller

A puppy is available till a deposit is in motion
        customer has the permission to place a deposit
When a deposit is in motion the puppy will have a x hour hold placed on it. 
If the deposit has not cleared within the x hour period,
the hold will be removed

and the puppy is placed back on the website for sale. 

If a puppy is available at the time of the email/phone call
it is a deposit that reserves the puppy as yours.   
If you are not willing to put down a deposit
then you risk that the puppy may be sold.

Appointments scheduled more than 1 day in advance
does NOT reserve the puppy
the deposit is the contract. 

An appointment says that you are interested in the puppy
but are not willing to make the commitment by placing a deposit. 

$350 deposit for a male
$450 deposit for a female
$450 undecided to ensure a choice
of either male or female that is not offered

The deposit goes towards the purchase price

which is listed on the puppy webpage.

Price is set at breeder discretion & is posted when offered for sale.

We never know if we will have all males, all girls or a nice mix.
The typical size of a litter is 2-4 puppies
however may be only 1 and sometimes more
We do not have a crystal ball that works to predict the future.

If placing a deposit for a future puppy
a decision would need to be made when puppies are offered to customers with deposits.

You may place a deposit for either a male, female or undecided.  
An email  will be send to you
photos and video are placed on the website. 

Each puppy will have a label posted by it.
mother's name     letter for sex      #    Example:   motherf4

                           m=male             f=female

                    m1 m2  f3 f4  =  4 puppies in the litter
2m & 2f  =  2 males & 2 females in the litter

You will have x hrs to decide your pick or pass...usually 24 hours. 
If you do not pick or pass

then we will usually choose pass for you.

The remaining available puppies are posted to the website for sale. 
You may chose from the available puppies posted on the website
if they are available.

Unless you state by email within x hours (stated on the email)
that you would like to pick a certain puppy,
your pick place would stay the same or move up
as the customers in front of you choose their puppy...
you may pass as many times as you wish
if you do not see the sex, coloring, size range, etc.

If a deposit is placed for an puppy and
unforeseen event occurs in our care,
the deposit may be moved to the next available puppy at the breeder's discretion...however we usually allow the customer to decide

If you are not planning on fixing your puppy by 8 months of age inform us asap
Any fault that will not heal over time or

cannot be fixed during neutering or spaying

will be disclosed before pickup

if not fixing and your puppy has a fault

we will ONLY pay for the cost to repair the fault -minus the cost of fixing

cost needs to be comparable to cost of vet service in our area.

Examples:  hernia, undescend testicle

Customers with DEPOSITS
have placed a deposit for puppy not born or offered for sale

I will post photos & video of the litter once they are born
When the mother and puppies are settled.
Usually at about 4-5 weeks of age

The photos will be marked:
mother's name
m = male
f = female
number = number of pups in litter

Example:   mother m#

The m1 is usually the most coloring of the male puppies
m3 is currently the least coloring or most white of the male puppies.

The overhead view of the video will show size comparison

NAMEf4 is currently the most coloring of the females
and f5 is currently the least coloring or most white of the females.

If you have first choice of either the males or females
then you would only need to email one choice .
State pick  mother letter # or PASS

If you have 2nd choice

then you would need to email two choices for pick or  state pass.

3rd choice

1st, 2nd and 3rd for picks or state pass

You will have 24 hours (or time stated on email)
to make your pick or pass.
                                  If you do not...we will pick or pass for you.

ANY remaining puppies NOT PICKED

Undecided Puppy Deposit $450

for puppy not born

We have decided NOT to ship.

Shipping can be tough on a young puppy.

We do not want any of our babies left out in the cold weather

It is better to make arrangements to pick up your new member

of the family and either travel with your puppy 

under the airplane seat

or in the grate/crate in your car.

The cost is comparable to shipping the puppy.
