Do you ship puppies? What about delivery?

Other destinations may be possible. Message me and I’ll ask for rates.

How do I adopt one of your puppies?
Start by reading our website and Facebook page where you will find answers to many of your questions. Next, please call or text us at (682) 597-4128 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know what you are looking for. We are happy to answer your questions and will probably have some for you too. Once you are certain you want one of our puppies (and we are certain you will provide it with a good home) you may send a deposit to hold a currently available puppy or a spot on our waiting list for a future puppy. We place families on our waiting list in the order deposits were received.
Once puppies are born, we will post pictures on our website and Facebook page. Those with paid deposits pick first. Any puppies not reserved by someone on our waiting list will be marked as "available" on our website and reserved on a first come first served basis. Pictures will be updated at regular intervals so you can watch your puppy grow. Before they go home, they will get dewormed and have first shots. For the safety of our puppies, we ask that you not visit them in person until after shots are given. We are very protective of our puppies and want to minimize any potential exposure to dangerous diseases like Parvo.
Our puppies are raised in our home with much human handling so they will be well socialized when you take them home. We are always available for questions to help make the transition from our home to yours as easy as possible.
When can I pick up my puppy?
Puppies must be a minimum of 8 weeks, possibly older if flying with a flight nanny. We reserve the right to keep a puppy past 8 weeks if we feel it is small and needs more time to wean. Please remember these are babies with immature immune systems. We ask that you not take your puppy to places like Petsmart, dog parks, hotels or anywhere unknown dogs have been until they have completed all vaccinations. Your vet can tell you when it is safe to take your puppy in public.
What type of food are you feeding the puppy?
Our puppies are fed Diamond Natural Small Breed Puppy. If you cant find it near you, it is available on www.chewy.com at very reasonable prices.
What should I bring to pick up the puppy?
A crate or basket is useful to carry the puppy home in. Some puppies get car sick so it may be a good idea to bring puppy pads or paper towels and trash bags. Remember it is not safe to stop roadside with a young puppy. If you have a long drive plan on disposing of waste when you stop.
