Price: $800.  Non-refundable deposits of $200 are required to hold a puppy.  The only way a deposit is refunded is if the puppy gets sick and/or dies before the buyer takes possession.  The deposit is transferable to another of my dogs for sale either within the same litter or for a later litter up to one year, then the deposit is forfeited.  The remaining balance is due before or upon pickup of the puppy.  If paying by check, you must mail it to us so there is adequate time for clearing before pickup.  Balances paid with Paypal will have a 3% fee added on to cover Paypal expenses.  Otherwise you may pay cash the day of pickup.

PET PUPPIES ARE PLACED WITH LIMITED AKC ONLY.  Our goal is to provide families with loving healthy pets first and foremost.  Full AKC is available to approved individuals for an additional $300.
