Our Puppy Buying Process
-After placing your deposit, you will be added to the list of the litter you have chosen, in
the order that your deposit was received. You will receive an update when the planned
parents breed and again around 4 weeks later when we confirm pregnancy by
ultrasound. We will update you again when the puppies are born. Please check our
website and Facebook page periodically for other news and updates.
-Within 2-3 days of the birth of the litter we will post a photo of the entire litter to our
website on the “Current Litters” page. After that, we will post updated individual photos
approximately weekly, except during the week that the puppy’s eyes start to open. We
usually skip that week because the puppy’s eyes can’t tolerate bright lights when they
are first open.
-We do temperament testing between 6 and 7 weeks of age. After this is completed, we
will schedule puppy picks. We record the temperament testing for each puppy and you
will have the opportunity to see the video before pick day. Pick is done in the order of
deposit by FaceTime or WhatsApp video. We do not know what puppies will be
available until pick day. On pick day, all puppies will be available for 1st pick. After they
have picked their puppy it will be taken out and buyer 2 will select from the remaining
puppies. This continues until all buyers have had a chance to pick their puppy. It is
important that families be prepared to choose their puppy in a timely manner. There are
other families that are on the waiting list that are anxiously waiting to see which puppies
they have to choose from. It is best to have your preferred puppies listed in order from
first to last.
-We strictly prohibit visitors. We are very concerned with communicable viruses and
diseases. A visitor can innocently and unknowingly introduce a new virus to our dogs
and puppies simply by bringing them in on the bottom of their shoes or on their
clothing. We also don’t want to stress our mamma dogs or expectant mamma dogs. We
know you are incredibly anxious to meet your new puppy. However, this is in your
puppy’s best interests.
-Pickup is at 8 weeks and is done in person at our home. We are not a boarding facility
so please ensure you will be able to pick up your dog at 8 weeks. Please note that the
remaining balance owed on your puppy is due at least 48 hours prior to pick up. We
accept Venmo, Zelle, or Apple Pay. Payment can also be made through GoodDog.
When you arrive at our home for pickup, please text and we will bring your puppy and
go-home material to you. We will be happy to discuss last minute details during this
time. If you are sick or have a fever or cough, please call and we will be happy to
reschedule your pickup.
-Your puppy comes with vaccinations and wormings up to date. Your puppy will still
need additional shots by your veterinarian at their recommendation. Your puppy will
receive a 6-week health check by our vet, and you will receive a copy for your records.
You are also eligible for one month of free pet insurance through Trupanion.
-We are here to support you for the life of your puppy. Please let us know if you have
any questions or concerns after you get home with your puppy.
