How do I reserve a puppy?
We do not reserve or take deposits on puppies that are not yet born. A $250 deposit is required to reserve a puppy from a current litter. Deposits are non-refundable.

We do take personal checks for deposits, but can no longer take personal checks for final payment, unless payment is made at least 3 weeks in advance. If final payment is less than 3 weeks in advance we take Postal money orders, Paypal, or cash.


What will I receive with my puppy?
All puppies include the following:

- Health record including all shots and worming information
- Sample of the food puppy is used to eating.
- Crate and Health certificate from Vet if shipping
- Written Health Warranty & Bill of Sale



Is shipping an option?
Many people ask if it is safe to ship a puppy. They think animals are drugged, put in a box, and treated like a mail order item. If this were how animals are shipped we would never ship our puppies!! After almost 6 years of shipping puppies all over the US we have never had any problem other than normal flight delays. Alaska Airlines and United Airlines are the best pet shippers by far. The one-way pet ticket costs have increased in the past few years. Both Alaska Airlines and United Airlines use climate controlled vans to transport pets from the cargo dept. to the airplane, where they are placed in climate controlled cargo compartment of the airplane that is very much like the cabin of the airplane without the seats and windows. Puppies are never drugged. They are shipped in a safe crate in which they can easily see out the sides and front, with food, water, and a blanket.
Extra food is taped to the side of the crate in the event of an unexpected layover/delay. Shipping pups takes a lot of time and planning. Pups must be taken to the vet just before shipping to get a shipping health certificate.
We also spend several days getting the puppy used to their shipping crate. We use crates that are bigger than the airlines require for the size of the puppy. This gives added comfort on shipping day and also provides you, in most cases, with a crate that can be used for a few months after you receive your puppy.  We can ship puppies within the continental US. The charge for this service is $295 - $350, which includes the vet-health certificate, and shipping crate. Sometimes we can offer a discount on shipping depending on the ticket price and if we are going to the airport to ship another puppy the same day. The airport is a 3 hr round trip drive for us so we combine puppy travel whenever possible.

 Can I pick up my puppy?
Yes we allow the puppies that will be picked up here to leave after they have had their second round of puppy shots, which is about 8 1/2 or 9 weeks.

Do you allow the general public to visit and handle your puppies?
No, we are very serious about protecting our puppies, only those who have a deposit and a vested interest in our pups are allowed to come and visit.  While we do understand the interest in this breed and why many great families want to just come and visit and hold one, a lot of times people will go from place to place viewing and playing with puppies.  What they do not realize is that they will be exposing our pups to whatever germs were at the last several places they visited. 

Do you have a health warranty?
Yes, all puppies come with a 72 hr health warranty that gives you time to take the puppy to your vet and have a full check up to make sure you are completely satisfied with your purchase. If you are not completely satisfied the puppy must be returned to us ASAP for a full purchase price refund. Any shipping charges are non-refundable.  In addition a 2 year health warranty that covers certain genetic defects is provided.
