Puppy Purchasing Process




A $500 nonrefundable deposit is required to reserve a puppy. Rank of puppy choice is determined by receipt of deposit. Puppy families have the choice of choosing a particular breeding, or next available future breeding.


We accept payments through personal check, money order, debit/credit card, and Paypal. There is an additional 4% charge added to Paypal and debit/credit card payments for handling fees.


**DUE TO STATE LAW, WE MUST CHARGE AN ADDITIONAL 6% SALES TAX TO PUPPY BUYERS RESIDING IN THE STATE OF KENTUCKY**


Once a breeding occurs, it is announced on the website with the projected date of birth.


**WE RESERVE THE RIGHT TO RETAIN OUR PICK PUPPY FROM ANY LITTER.**


Full payment must be received by the time the puppy is 6 weeks of age.


At the time of purchase, puppies are sold with limited or full AKC registration.


"Limited" registration means that the dog is registered with the American Kennel Club, but NO litters produced by the dog are eligible for registration.


"Full" registration means that the dog is registered with the American Kennel Club, as well as, ALL future litters produced by the dog are eligible for AKC registration.


It is possible to reverse limited registration to full registration if desired.


Deposits are nonrefundable, but can be transferred to a future litter.


Puppies are normally priced between $1800 - $2000 with AKC registration, depending on breedings.


We offer AKC ReUnite micro-chipping upon request. The microchip can be inserted when the puppy is 8 weeks old or older. While there is no charge for the chip, it is optional.


Puppies cannot be shipped until they are 8 weeks of age. Due to USDA rulings, we can no longer ship puppies. Ground transport services are available at buyer's expense and discretion.


PUPPY CHOICES ARE MADE BETWEEN 5 1/2 - 6 WEEKS OF AGE. WE APPRECIATE THE COOPERATION, UNDERSTANDING, AND PATIENCE OF ALL FAMILIES INVOLVED IN THIS PROCESS. IN CONSIDERATION AND FAIRNESS TO EVERYONE, WE ASK THAT FAMILIES MAKE THEIR DECISION WITHIN 24 HOURS ONCE THEIR RANK OF CHOICE IS AVAILABLE. REFUSAL TO COMPLY MAY RESULT IN THE PUPPY CHOICE BEING MADE BY THE BREEDER/KENNEL.


Puppies are available for pick up at 8 weeks of age. As a convenience to the buyer, we agree to board a puppy for up to 3 days at no additional charge. Upon the 4th day, we will hold a puppy for an additional 7 days at a boarding charge of $15 per day. Due to limited amount of kennel space, we cannot board puppies longer than 10 days.


WE RESERVE THE RIGHT TO REFUSAL AT ANY TIME DURING THE ADOPTION PROCESS WHEN WE FEEL THAT IT IS IN THE BEST INTEREST OF THE HEALTH AND WELFARE OF THE PUPPY. IN THAT CASE, THE POTENTIAL PUPPY BUYER WILL RECEIVE A FULL REFUND.
