Welcome. The following information is provided to help clear up any questions you may have in purchasing a puppy. It will be assumed that this information is read and agreed upon by both parties. Please print and send this agreement with your deposit - a copy will be returned to you with the puppy.
Our puppies are all raised inside our home. They are played with and loved and are brought up around kids, cats and other dogs. All our dogs here eat "raw" but the puppies are raised on commercial puppy food. We currently use Taste of the WIld puppy food and stronglhy suggest grain free food!
All our dogs and puppies are AKC registered and from champion lines. We do not sell to puppymills, pet stores, brokers nor for breeding purposes. They are sold to be loving family members - AKC papers are not released to buyer until proof of spay/neuter is received from your vet. We offer a one year guarantee against any life-threatening genetic illness. Puppies need to be taken to your vet within 72 hours of it's arrival to you and all vaccinations must be kept current. We strongly recommend that the dog food you use be grain-free or the grain be rice or oats (not corn nor wheat). If a life-threatening genetic illness is confirmed (by your vet and ours), a replacement puppy will be offered as soon as one is available. Shipping of the puppy is to be paid by the buyer.
We do not require a detailed profile filled out for you to purchase a puppy, but would love to hear about you and your family and how the pup will live. We reserve the right to refuse sale for any reason. If, for any reason, you are unable to keep the puppy/dog, it must be returned to us - none are to be resold, turned over to rescues, or live off your premises.
All puppies are checked by our vet and tails and dewclaws are done around 3-4 days of age. They are wormed every 2 weeks and receive their first puppy shot at 6 weeks of age. They will need two more of these from your vet before they are immune to parvo, distemper, etc. Do NOT take your puppy to dog parks, pet stores, etc before all shots are completed. Also, carry your puppy into vet and place on santitized table.
Although we prefer not to ship the puppies, we understand that it is necessary in some cases. Shipping cost is appx $300. Puppies cannot be shipped until they are at least 8 weeks of age. If you are able to pick up your puppy, it can be released after all shots/wormings are current. We can sometimes meet somewhere but do charge fees for gas.
A deposit will hold your puppy. All deposits are non-refundable. Please be aware that no deposit is returned if you have circumstances that do not allow you to complete the purchase. The deposit is applied to the total cost and your pup must be paid in full at least one week before delivery is scheduled (if shipped). Balance must be paid in cash if puppy is picked up. If all money is not here/cleared by 7 weeks of age, the puppy will be resold.
Buyer agrees that he/she understands this contract fully, will comply with this contract, and that this contract is under the jurisdiction of the State of Missouri, Vernon County. It is agreed the place of venue shall be Vernon County, Missouri.
