Frequently Asked Questions

What is the cost of a puppy?

Our pups are $1495 and require a $500 deposit.

What are the deposit requirements?

$500 NON REFUNDABLE deposit is required to be on any of our moms upcoming litters.

How does the deposit system work in choosing a pup?

Families get to pick their puppy based on when they placed their deposit. So first deposit first pick, 2nd deposit 2nd pick, and so forth. Any extra puppies are posted on the website for the general public after all our waiting families have picked their puppy. All available puppies are offered first to clients waiting on other upcoming moms before placing on the web site for the general public. Deposits are NON- REFUNDABLE however if placing a deposit and the mom you waited for does not have enough puppies, not the right sex or color you wanted, litter didn't survive, etc. then you are bumped to the next litter. If after 6 months from that date and we are unable to provide a puppy for you, we will then offer you a refund or you may continue to wait. The decision is always up to you at that point. It rarely happens but when dealing with life things DO happen but we try our best to work with you. This is also printed on your receipt when placing a deposit. 

Can I get a deposit refund?

$500 is NON REFUNDABLE deposit is required to be on any of our moms upcoming litters. If you change your mind or have a life event that prevents you from getting your puppy however you can move your deposit to an upcoming litter for up to 1 yr. If something happens on our end, we will move you to the next available litter. If we are unable to provide a puppy for you within 1 year we will refund your deposit at your request.  If a litter is not born, puppies do not make it, false pregnancies, this does not mean a refund.  This means we will put you on the next available litter and on our wait list.  We can't guarantee nature so please be patient. We try our best but "life" happens. We will refund your deposit after one year regardless though in most cases our clients get a puppy anywhere from 4-8 months of placing their deposits. 

Can we visit your place before we place a deposit?

Yes, however we are very limited with days and sometimes the wait to visit can be a few weeks.  If we have current pups available we try our best to accommodate your day and time you'd like to visit.  We do not allow visits with pups under the age of 7 weeks. Pups over 8 weeks old can be seen by appointment. Serious inquiries only.  

What does your cost include?

Prices for all of our breeds Male or female are $1495.  This includes Microchipping and registration, vet visit with exam and given a FL Health Certificate, first shots, de-wormed, fecal, Bathed, flea protection for one month and a written one year guarantee.

Do you charge additional fee's?

$25 per day fee if your puppy is not picked up on your pickup day. Please plan your vacations and family events accordingly.  

What do you feed your dogs & puppies?

Most everyone wants to know what our dogs eat. Our puppies eat Eukanuba small breed puppy. Our adults eat Purina ONE and Pedigree wet food.  We start puppies at 4 weeks on kibble mixed with a bit of wet food.  This will make sure they have prettier coats, and eating better and higher fat and protein as dogs and puppies need.  

Can we visit our puppy before he/she goes home?

 We allow one 15 minute visit to see your puppy before it goes home but pup must be 6 weeks of age before any visit is allowed and at my discretion.  

How can I pick my puppy if I can't see it first?

90% of my clients pick by photos within the first 2 weeks of birth as the majority of my clients are not local.   
I am more than happy to do video's and photos for you as well to help you pick the puppy you like. We can talk about all the things you're wanting and I can direct you to the right puppy.  If I ever feel you have picked a puppy that is not suitable based on your wants for your family I WILL tell you and give you the option of changing.  It is rarely an issue but on occasion it does happen. If you're a client that needs to see your puppy at 6 weeks of age and pick by personality, then I am probably not the breeder for you as we rarely if ever have pups that old that are available to pick from. 

When can my puppy go home?

All puppies go home at 8 weeks unless they are getting training. Trained pups will go to my assistants home until 10 weeks and you would pick your puppy up from her.  As soon as they see the vet for their health certificates they can go home. If their birthday falls mid week they may go home anytime that day or wait till Friday or Saturday just after their 8th week birthday.  You are given a date for pickup.    We ask our families to please plan vacations, school events, sporting events, or other activities accordingly as pups must be picked up on time.  Though in the past I have tried to work with our families to accommodate pick ups as much as possible,  with the amount of families we have to work with for deliveries as well as pick ups it is no longer possible.   Thank you for your understanding! 

Do you ship puppies?

We will no longer offer shipping due to so many regulations with the airlines. However I do offer other options for you. If your in the state of FL we can usually have a carrier deliver to your door.  We charge $350. I will also meet you within a hours drive from my home free of charge if it helps cut down on some of the drive time for my clients.  We can fly to you and meet you at the majority of airports and we charge approximately $450 which includes my flight to you and the puppy under my seat.  You are always welcome to fly here as well to Tampa International or Clearwater /St. Pete Airport and you can take your puppy back under the seat.  I will gladly meet you at the airport with your puppy. 

What do we do with our retired parents?

They live with us all the days of their lives where they have always been. Occasionally we make exceptions if we know a family  and know they will take good care of one of our retiree's.  Otherwise this will always be there home!
