                                  READ ON !!

WE ARE HERE TO HELP.....
Getting a new puppy can be rewarding experience.  It can also lead to a lot of questions.  We are always available to answer your questions before, during, and after you get your puppy.  We want the puppy to have a great new home, and we want you to have a worry-free purchase.  If, after reading the following,  you have ANY questions, please don't hesitate to call or email us.
 
OUR PUPPIES ARE AVAILABLE ON A SPAY/NEUTER CONTRACT ONLY !!  
 
WE DO NOT SELL BREEDING RIGHTS !!!

HOW DO YOU GET YOUR PUPPY ???
After an initial telephone interview, we will need your name, phone number(s), email address, what color/sex you want.     As soon as we verify that the female is pregnant (usually with an ultrasound), we'll announce their approximate due date to our waiting list.  When the pups are whelped, we will send a blind-copy email to everyone on our list.  The email will specify what puppies we have and when you may call to reserve one.  IT IS FIRST-COME; FIRST-SERVED !!!!
 
PRICING ---
   Call us to discuss prices.
 
************************************************************
WE HAVE A PUPPY FOR YOU.  NOW WHAT ?....  
When puppies are born, we will email the info about them to our wait-list.  Once you see them posted, CALL US !!  If we have the puppy you want, and  you agree to purchase that puppy by making the PayPal deposit, we will send out 2 copies of a purchase contract.   You sign & return one to us, keeping the other copy for your files.  

We will send new pictures
of your pup, (starting at 2 weeks of age) along with a little something about him/her every week via email, until your puppy is delivered to you. 
 
ABOUT THE PICTURES OF THE PUPPIES.....
We take pictures every weekend of everyone's puppy and
send them via email.    When they are new-born they look like slugs in a garden, but they they are YOUR SLUGS - we want you to get the pictures.    This is a COURTESY to you... We know of no other breeder that offers this service... most think it's too much work. But we're NOT like the others !!   We spend 4-6 hours every week on each litter taking the pictures. Of the 15-20 pictures we take of each puppy, only a few are good enough to send.  All of the pictures have to be downloaded, processed, watermarked (believe it or not, people will steal pictures from the Internet !!), uploaded, and sent to you in an email...   So it's a lot of work, but we do it for YOU...   Please enjoy the pictures that we send........ but do not ask us to take a certain pose of your puppy, such as head-on, profile, full-body, etc..   We have no control of what pose your puppy will give us...  Your pup is the one in charge while doing his/her pictures.  We send you the best of the pictures that we get...
 
******************************************************************

Taking pictures of puppies is difficult, at best.  The older they get, the more difficult it is to get a decent picture...  We take, on average, 15-20 pictures of each puppy each week.  Of that number, we usually get 4 or 5 that are good enough to use on our website, but we will send them all to you.   PLEASE !!  Do NOT ask us for additional pictures.   To get an idea of how hard "Picture Day" is at our house click the link below....  Though not our dogs, this gives you an idea of how dificult pictures can be....  and remember the Scotties in the video are adults .... puppies are WAY harder !!

HOW DO YOU PAY ???

We accept the following methods of payment....
 
1). 
PayPal.
2). 
Nothing else -

    NO EXCEPTIONS !!!!

 

ALL payments MUST be made via PayPal.  There are reasons for this.   Because of the counterfeiting of money orders, cashiers' checks, and bank drafts, banks are holding these items for as much as 2 weeks.   In order to insure that the transaction goes smoothly, we only accept PayPal.  Per our attorney, PayPal is an excellent way to keep complete records, and provides protections for everyone involved.

 

Please don't ask us to accept a personal check, cashier's check, certified check, bank draft or bank transfer, or credit card.  

 

PayPal.  That's it !!

 

 

************************************************************

WHEN DO YOU PAY THE DEPOSIT ??

Deposits are requested via PayPal at the time you agree to purchase the puppy you want.  The deposit is, of course, is applied to the purchase price of the puppy.  

 

If you do agree to the purchase of a puppy, we will send you a PayPal invoice for the deposit amount - it is payable immediately.     If you do not make the deposit within 24 hours, we will go to the next person on the waiting list.

 

 

We DO NOT accept PayPal eChecks.. Everyone who has tried to use them has had problems, and that delays the whole process  !!

 

PLEASE NOTE -  We DO NOT switch deposits to another puppy, or another litter.  When you agree to purchase a puppy, we send out a contract for THAT specific puppy.  Please understand that we invest a lot of time and effort in taking pictures of your puppy and sending them to you each week, and we have removed your puppy from the 'available' market.   If you switch puppies after the contract has been signed, it causes more paperwork for everyone, re-sending of pictures, changing website information, and advertising of the puppy again.

 

For these reasons, our non-refundable deposit is NON-REFUNDABLE

******************************************************************

WHAT ABOUT MICRO-CHIPPING ??
 
We recommend that you micro-chip your puppy.  This is a safe way to permanently identify your puppy.   We offer micro-chipping service for $40 and will implant the chip, if you choose this option.   If you do choose micro-chipping, we will include the charge in the PayPal invoice  when the puppy is 6wks of age(AFTER the healthy pup check-up).   The entire balance due must be paid before the chip is implanted. When you receive your pup, you will also get instructions on how to register the chip.

WHEN DO YOU PAY THE REST ??

Once your puppy has passed the 6wks healthy puppy check-up, we will send you a PayPal invoice for your balance.  That is invoice is due THAT DAY !!  If not paid immediately, your contract can be voided and your deposit forfeited,    We accept PayPal ONLY !!!  

IF PICKING UP....
The remaining balance is due at the time of the 6wks healthy puppy check-up via PayPal ONLY !!
.  This keeps you from having to carry the cash needed to pay your balance.  By having the payment taken care of at 6wks, the transfer of the puppy to you is simpler and easier when you arrive.  We WILL NOT ACCEPT cash, personal checks, money orders, cashier's checks, certified checks, credit cards, bank drafts, or bank transfers when you come to pick up your puppy. 

 
We will help with Hotel/Motel, sight-seeing,  where to eat, shop, etc. !!    
 
************************************************************
IF SHIPPING....

SORRY !!!!!!

WE NO LONGER SHIP PUPPIES !!!!
 
Please see the "SHIPPING YOUR PUPPY" page for more information...
******************************************************************

WHEN CAN YOU GET YOUR PUPPY ??


Puppies start bonding at 6-8 weeks, so it is very important that you take delivery of your puppy at that time.  We schedule them to leave AFTER our vet says they are ready. He evaluates them for leaving at their 6wks healthy-puppy check-up. We hold the puppies for 2 more weeks, to observe them and make sure that all is okay after their first shot.  All puppies are ready leave immediately at 8 weeks of age.  No exceptions !   

Here's why....
