The best time to pick out a puppy is at 4 weeks since that is the time the puppy will start to distinguish itself and show its character, however, the puppy will not be ready for a new home before it is 8 weeks old. This also allows us to prescreen the puppies from any issues.
You can select a puppy two ways: 1. By viewing posted pictures and videos of available puppies on the Web page, or;
2. Through advance reservation. Advance reservation allows you to select a puppy based on your preference for sex and color before the puppies are advertised or posted on the Web page. Advance reservations are made by sending a deposit of $100 for Shih Tzu and $200 for Chow puppies.
Choosing a puppy is done on a first come, first served basis, with the person who makes the first reservation by deposit, getting the first choice. The person who makes the second deposit, gets second choice and so on.
3. The deposit will lock in the price for your puppy at time of deposit.
4. Deposits are good for one year only. You may extend your deposit for another year by adding another regular deposit to the original deposit, and the prices quoted at the time of the extension will be price locked in.
5. No Refunds on Deposits. Be sure of your commitment to a puppy before sending deposits.
In an effort to provide healthy disease-free puppies to the public, we have decided to initiate a visitor policy.
With puppies in various stages of growth that may have not received complete vaccinations, any outside bacteria or viruses introduced can be lethal. Even the older dogs may be at risk; they can become carriers to the newborns later.
We have zoned off areas that are restricted and compartmentalized in such a way as to reduce the spreading of diseases in the kennel. The zones are: 1) the mothers of the puppies, 2) the unweaned puppies, and 3) the nurseries and newborn area.
Our show room for puppies is unrestricted.
Anyone choosing to visit restricted zones will have to wear protective coverings on hands, feet and head. (There will be a $30 Charge to defray cleanup and environmental suit expenses)
Additionally, due to limited Insurance options offered to Kennel Businesses, all visitors to restricted zones in the Kennel will be required to sign a Hold Harmlessagreement, absolving us from any and all liability that may arise from the entry in those zones.
This policy is not meant to offend anyone. We are doing this to protect our beloved dogs and puppies.
If this is a problem for anyone, please consider finding a different breeder. Thank you for your understanding
We do NOT offer Stud Services. We prefer NOT to supply puppies as Breeding Stock. We prefer NOT to sell to Pet Stores. We prefer NOT to sell to Pet Brokers. We do NOTWholesale Puppies
While our puppies can be used for show or breeding, no guarantee is made that they would be suitable for that purpose. Breeding voids the health guarantee. Each week, picture updates will show you how your puppy is maturing. If you are not 100% satisfied, you may opt to wait for a different puppy from another litter.
If circumstances do not allow you to receive your puppy at the due time, we will happily keep the puppy and care for it until you are ready for him/her. There will be a $20 a month feefor the care and extra vaccinations that may be needed.
For special circumstances, we can keep a puppy for an extended time period beyond 8 weeks. The puppy must be paid for in full, and any cancellations will be dealt with in accordance to the return policy.
We use a Holistic, Homeopathic all natural approach in raising and feeding our animals. Please view details on our philosophy to the care and treatment of all our puppies. See Tabs on Dog Food Nutrition and Neutering Your Pet.
