How We Handle Our Puppy Deposits & Shipping
We offer you the most convenient and optimal solution for acquiring your new puppy. We are pleased to inform you that we can meet you at either Nashville International (BNA) or Huntsville International (HSV) airports, depending on your preference. It is important to note that we do not charge any additional fees for this service, despite it requiring a four-hour roundtrip for us. By choosing this method, you can enjoy the benefit of receiving your puppy directly from the breeder, eliminating any intermediary involvement. We highly recommend this approach due to its simplicity and reliability, without incurring any supplementary costs or hidden fees that can come up when using flight nannies. Additionally, you will not experience any delays caused by pet nannies due to standby flights.
Alternatively, we offer the option to ship your puppy within the Continental U.S. with the assistance of a pet nanny. PLEASE be aware that when a pet nany flies, it is by standby, meaning they can get bumped from their flight for no room for them. Flights are often cancelled or delayed, resuling in you not getting your puppy as soon as you thought. This is not the pet nannies fault – there have been many cancelled and delayed flights in recent history, causing a lot of re-routing for all airline passengers. So you will need to be patient. Rest assured that this process prioritizes the well-being of your puppy, as it entails a person collecting the puppy from us and placing it in a pet carrier to accompany them on the plane. It is important to emphasize that at no point do we receive any payment for shipping the puppy via a pet nanny; all funds are directly given to the pet nanny. The cost for most deliveries within the United States ranges from $500 to $550*; however, this amount may increase if the flight nanny encounters layovers or faces challenges in securing immediate return flights. It is customary to submit a non-refundable deposit, usually ranging from $150 to $200, via reliable payment platforms such as PayPal or Venmo to reserve a specific day for delivery. The remaining balance must be settled in cash at the airport upon receipt of the puppy. We can guarantee delivery to major and international airports, *please note -the airport may not be the closest to you, or your first choice – this is due to having to fly standby and trying to get your puppy to you as quickly as possible. Flexibility regarding the date range of delivery can prove beneficial, considering that delays may occur due to our standby flights and the recent cancellation of numerous flights by airlines.
Throughout the journey, the pet nanny and your puppy will remain in close proximity to one another, with the puppy always traveling in the cabin. Real-time updates will be provided by the pet nanny to keep you informed during the trip. Once the pet nanny arrives at an airport near your location, their journey will culminate, and you will be able to collect your puppy without any further complications.
Please note that shipments to Alaska and Puerto Rico incur slightly higher costs, ranging from $750 to $850 USD*.

Waiting list deposit; $500 – non-refundable, goes towards purchase price of your puppy. Be sure to do your due diligence. I try to be as transparent as possible, please ask all your questions 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. For more information about deposits please see our Puppy Pricing Policy page.
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. If any puppies are available after the waitlist or if they weren’t chosen they will be listed on my puppies for sale page.
Balance due at pick up / if being delivered by pet nanny – balance is due before puppy leaves for airport to be delivered to you.
Puppies are sold to pet homes only – no papers.
PLEASE NOTE: We work by waiting list ONLY. If we 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.
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, a certified copy of registration, microchipped, 100% Money Back Lifetime Genetic Health Guarantee.
When you are ready to put a current puppy on hold or place a deposit for a future litter, I am now sending invoices which helps me keep track financially and for you to have that extra security for sending money via the internet. Once you receive the invoice, you can look it over to be sure everything is correct before securely sending your money. You can pay the invoice via PayPal, Venmo, CashApp, Zelle, or credit card. Please add 2.9% for fees taken by: PayPal, Venmo or credit card.
