...Now that you are considering adopting one of our puppies, you may be asking:
1. Before puppies leave our farm they will receive their first immunization and de-wormer.
2. We hope to offer the best guidance in a puppy selection, that would best suit the needs of your family.
We post photos of the pups on this website as they become available, to assist you in the decision-making process.
We also encourage you to reach out to us with your questions & concerns about your needs.
3. Once you have decided on a pup to adopt from our farm, you will need to make a non-refundable deposit.
The final payment (minus the deposit) will need to be paid the day you visit our farm to pick up your puppy.
4. When the deposit is received by us, your puppy will be "reserved" for you on our website.
Please note that if you decide not to purchase one of our pups, please contact us immediately so we may put it back up for sale.
This is to ensure that our pups will be marketable. As you know, dogs sell best in their "puppy stage".
5.Once the pups grow much older than 3 months, the pups can become difficult to place in new homes.
We encourage our buyers to have the puppy at their new home by 10 weeks of age, unless special arrangements have been made with us.
Past 10 weeks of age, we will need to look at other prospective buyers for the pup.
6. As the pup reaches 6-8 weeks of age, you can arrange to pick up your new puppy!
The age you get them depends on how quickly they wean from their mother, as well as how well they are eating dog food.
7. Once we receive our litter registrations from the UKC (United Kennel Club), we will provide you with a copy for your puppy, to apply for permanent UKC registration.
8. For guidance on future check-ups/immunizations, please reach out to your family veterinarian.
