Frequently Asked Questions

When will you have puppies available?


Our availability for puppies will change according to when a breeding is scheduled. We will always post on the 'Puppies For Sale" page when we have a scheduled breeding, a pregancy confirmed, or when puppies are available.




How much are puppies?


Our price per puppy is $2000 for males and $2000 for females. These prices are prone to change in the future or at the time of sale. Breeding rights can be purchased for an additional cost. See 'Do you offer breeding rights?' below.




Are your dogs AKC registered? What about hip/health screened?


Yes! All of our dogs are AKC registered & produce AKC registerable litters. They have all been health tested and cleared of over 170+ genetic conditions. As far as hips, we have decided against OFA certification, as it is a very tedious process that can do more harm than good to the dogs. Our dogs do, however, have a history of good to excellent rated hips.




How do I reserve a puppy? (Deposit info)


Once we have a pregnancy confirmed for one of our females, you can be added to our reservation list with a $100 deposit. If we DO NOT have what you are looking for when the litter is born, then you have the option to be fully refunded of this amount or be put on the list for our next litter. If we DO have the availability for you, then we will continue to the next step of choosing your puppy and taking another $300 deposit to hold your puppy until pick-up. This helps us cover the costs of food, care and vet bills for your pup. If you decide you do not want a puppy when we have the availability for you or you back out, you will only get a partial refund for these amounts. We accept deposits in the form of cash, check, Venmo or Paypal.




Do you have a health guarantee?


Yes we do! We have a 1-year health guarantee that is included as a section of our written sales contract. You can find a link to our health guarantee (without breeding rights) below. If you would like to see the health guarantee with breeding rights, please contact us.




Do you offer breeding rights?


We do offer breeding rights for an additional cost. We will ultimately decide the cost of this right at the time of sale. We will also decide which dogs are to be granted that right, as we want to encourage only the best quality dogs to become producers. We DO NOT encourage irresponsible breeding of these dogs and want only responsible/experienced breeders to have this right.




Can anyone have a puppy?


We give everyone an opportunity to own one of our puppies, however, it is our obligation to make sure our dogs go to great homes. We start our interviewing process from the very first message we receive. We are expecting responsible, respectful, animal-loving individuals and families who can support and take care of our dogs. If you do NOT meet this criteria, we highly encourage you to look elsewhere.
