What is the placement process?
When we place puppies we like to go through a few different steps to assure we are choosing the best home possible and also that we guide buyers in choosing the best fit for their family.
Potential buyers can contact us using either our website or Facebook. I usually correspond within 3 days unless I miss the message altogether. If you don't hear from me please message again. There is usually a very basic discussion and if you would like to be put on the notification list we can do that. There is no charge for simply waiting.
Sometimes there are too many people waiting so it is difficult to go through all of the screening before I know there might be availability. I understand the desire to try to find a puppy faster than a breeder may have one available for you. If I feel there are enough people waiting I'll just let you know to check back. I really appreciate those that wait the long haul but if you happen to find one sooner I always appreciate a quick message. That way I would be able to allow someone else on the list.
The puppy application will be available as needed. From there we discuss certain things and decide if it's a good match. I also like to have a phone discussion and know more about your home and family.
I will notify buyers when a pregnancy is confirmed and then again when the puppies are born. If you are interested in the litter I will accept non-refundable deposits of $300 to confirm your spot in choosing a puppy.
It is very important to remember that I am always looking for my next show potential puppy. That means puppies can't be structurally evaluated until 8 weeks of age. Puppies can then be chosen for their best matches after that.
What will come with my puppy?
Your puppy will be able to join you anytime between 8 weeks to 10 weeks. He/she will be loved, well socialized with all the things I possibly can (except cats) and leave here with a clean bill of health.
