Puppy Deposit & Shipping
how we handle our puppy deposits & shipping
the only way we do it is with a pet nanny
We can ship a puppy in the Continental U.S. with a pet nanny. That means a person picks up the puppy from me, puts the puppy in a pet carrier and the puppy rides on the plane with the person – NOT CARGO, and hand delivers the puppy to you at an airport of your choice. This usually runs about $350 but this is subject to change without notice.
Puppy can be shipped worldwide but the pet nanny fee goes up accordingly!
If you don’t live far enough to ship a puppy via plane, I can meet you within two hours of my home for no charge. After that it is .50 a mile – subject to change without notice if gas prices get crazy!
Or you are welcome to come to my house to pick up the puppy at a pre arranged day and time. I, however, cannot allow looky loos, this is for someone who has purchased a pup and is coming to get their puppy.
Placing A Deposit
waiting list for future litters
Waiting list deposit; $500. Once born $500 is due for a total of $1000 down. That might seem steep but it does go towards the purchase price of course and I want you to be truly sure that this is what you want. So be sure to do your due diligence. I try to be as transparent as possible, please ask any questions you have BEFORE putting your deposit. The deposit is to be sure you get the puppy you want, but I stop advertising that puppy once deposit is placed and that means I could lose out on possible real sale of the puppy.
Waiting list: Once puppies are born I go down the waiting list in the order the deposits were received until all puppies are spoken for. When the next litter is born I start back at the top of the waiting list.
For those NOT on the waiting list the deposit to hold a specific puppy or a puppy from a specific litter after birth is $1000.
Balance due at pick up/delivery in cash.
PRICES START AT: $2500. All of our puppies are priced the same regardless of gender. Puppies come with AKC or MSCA limited registration meaning for companion only.
PLEASE NOTE: We work by waiting list ONLY. We rarely have a puppy available outside of the waiting list. I do not keep a contact list of those “interested”. Those that do not want to place a waiting list deposit can check the website to see if any pups are available from a new litter. IF I do have any puppies that did not get spoken for from the waiting list they will be posted on the website.
Balance due at or before delivery. Delivery, extended stay & ear crop not included in price.
Our Puppies come with – vet check, age appropriate vaccines, de-worming, tails docked (can keep the tail for you if you tell me before puppy is 3 days of age), dewclaws removed, AKC or MSCA limited registration paperwork (after proof or spay or neuter), microchipped, 100% Money Back Lifetime Genetic Health Guarantee.
I accept deposit payments via Zelle or Venmo. When you are ready to put a deposit I’ll send you instructions on how to do so.
