Adoption

Our puppies are sold limited AKC registration with a spay/neuter contract.

The first step in adopting one of our puppies is to fill out our application. You can find it here:

After we review your application and you are approved to adopt, you will be added to the waiting list. There is no obligation at this point. This waiting list may be long, but some people on the list will have already found a puppy or no longer be interested when the litter arrives.

Once a litter arrives, each person on the list will be given the opportunity to make a deposit to hold a puppy from the litter in the order they are on the waiting list. The deposit can be made via check, paypal or Facebook payments, or Venmo. After a deposit is made, I will send a signed copy of our puppy hold contract. Here is the the blank contract for review:

When making a deposit, you are reserving your spot in line to get a puppy. It is not specific to one litter, but just a first come first serve list of everyone who has made a deposit to get a puppy. If you are number 8 in line and I have a litter of 7 puppies, then you will be first pick of the next litter.

Puppy Picking will take place at 6 weeks, and each deposit holder will pick in the order that deposits are received. If you are reserving after 6 weeks, you can reserve a specific puppy.

Puppy pickup will be at 8 weeks and the balance will be due at pickup in cash.

We offer a 1 year health guarantee and support for the lifetime of the dog including taking the dog back if, for any reason, you are not able to keep them. All puppies will have a vet visit around 6 weeks old. They will get a full physical checkup, checked for worms/parasites, and first round of vaccines.
