Frequently Asked Questions when purchasing a puppy

 

1.  Can  you reserve a puppy for me?


     Yes,  we require a $400 deposit to hold  a puppy if the puppy is under 8 weeks of age and remaining balance is  due before we can ship the puppy. We do not place a puppy on hold unless  we have received a deposit. If puppy is over 8 weeks of age, payment in  full is required unless other arrangements have been made.


2.  What payment forms do you accept?

   We accept pay pal (3% processing fee added) or check/money order by mail. Pay pal is our preferred method of payment and we can email you an invoice through pay pal. 


3.  If I put a deposit on a puppy, is it refundable?  

 Deposits are  non-refundable UNLESS something happens to the puppy here (gets  sick/injured/or dies) or if the puppy does not check out 100% at the vet  check. If this should happen then we will either refund the deposit or transfer the deposit to another available puppy of your choice.


 

4. Have the puppies received any  vaccinations?   

Yes, we give our puppies 2 parvo vaccinations, kennel cough vaccination and a 5 way vaccination along with routine worming.  Puppies are vet checked at 7 - 8 weeks of age.  



5.  Do you ship the puppies?  

Yes, we ship our puppies with either Delta or United airlines to most major US cities.  Shipping is an additional $350 to most major airports.  We ship our puppies out of Sioux Falls SD - some of the airlines do have temperature restrictions,  if it is below 10 degrees or above 85 degrees the day your puppy is scheduled to go out, we may need to reschedule.    We do NOT ship on Sundays.  


6.  What is included in the shipping cost?

   The flight, vet check, health  certificate, and an airline approved travel crate which is yours to  keep. We use shredded newspaper in the crate for absorbent bedding. The  shipping is very safe. It usually takes us a couple of days to arrange  the flight and get all the paperwork in order for shipping.  

 
7. Do you have a contract?

  Yes, there is a copy of it on the "guarantee" page.  No other warranties or guarantees beyond what is listed.  


8.  How old does the puppy have to be before it can leave? 

 They need to be 8 weeks of age before we can let any puppy leave.  Sometimes we may require them to be a bit older depending on the weaning progress.  Puppies have their vet exam done between 7 - 8 weeks of age.  


9.  Do you have references?


Yes, we do have references and will release them upon request also check out our testimonial page.



10.  Are the puppies purebred and registered?   

Our puppies are purebred and  registered with APRI (American Pet Registry). Our parents are all dual  registered with AKC and APRI. The puppies will come with APRI  registration papers and these can be sent to AKC for AKC registration as  well. We name our puppies for advertising/identification purposes only  -  they are not registered under a given name - you may choose a name  and register your puppy under your given name!  


11.  Any testing done on the adults?  

Yes, OFA testing is done for heart and patellas.
