All of our puppies are registered with the American Kennel Club (AKC) and Australian Shepherd Club of America (ASCA)
All puppies are socialized, hand-raised, and spoiled from birth to give them a great head start in their new homes.
All puppies come with:
If you wish to give a forever home to one of our puppies, the first step is to fill out the puppy questionnaire and for us to discuss your particular interest in the breed. This generally takes place through email so we have it for our records. Once we have discussed what you are looking for in a puppy and if you wish to place a deposit on a current litter, you will be asked to look over the deposit information. Please review the information below.
General Deposit Information:
$300, applied toward the purchase price of an individual puppy, will be paid as a deposit to hold the puppy for you until we designate the puppy is ready to be re-homed (generally 9 weeks of age going to local homes and 10 weeks if shipped to you via the airline). We do not hold puppies for individuals without deposits being placed. Inquiries come in at various times and a puppy that is available one day could be spoken for the same or next day.
Deposits are non-refundable unless the puppy becomes unavailable through some unforeseen circumstance.
We do not accept deposits until a litter is born. We then accept deposits on specific puppies on a first come, first serve basis. When you place a deposit on a specific puppy, this guarantees you that we will hold the puppy for you until the puppy is ready to be rehomed. Any of the puppies available are equally good puppies. Some choose by size, color, markings, and just a "feeling" of which one they want. So just because a puppy is the last in a litter doesn't mean they are not a good puppy.
We take new photos on the birth week, then at 3 weeks, 5 weeks, and 7 weeks. Updates happen through email for ease and our records. Puppies can generally be picked up at 9 weeks old or shipped at 10 weeks. For more information on this, please see our policy page.
For deposits we accept PayPal. To pay through PayPal, please allow us to send you an invoice for the deposit amount. This can be paid through your PayPal account or with a credit card.
FINAL PAYMENT The balance remaining may be paid by cash at the time of pickup in person, or via PayPal prior to pickup or prior to the shipping date. Please note that it may take up to 3 business days for a PayPal payment to clear and you will not be able to take your puppy home until it goes through. Cash is the only payment form we accept for final payment made in person. All payments must clear before the puppy is transferred to the buyer, including any necessary shipping and/or holding fees. If shipping via the airline, the puppy must be paid for in full by 9 weeks of age to give us time for the veterinary visit, final flight requirements from the airline, and to give PayPal time to clear in case a hold is placed on the payment.
We raise our dogs and puppies out of our home and are not a kennel facility. We do not allow visitors to our home any longer due to the spread of canine communicable disease, and issues with people coming when we're not at home. This litter will be picked up locally when ready to go to new homes.
