Puppy Adoption and Waitlist Application
Please read the following before filling out our application:
1. Please fill out our application to begin the waitlist process for a future puppy. After we have received your application we will chat on the phone ... and I’m looking forward to answering any questions that you might have! Please be patient as it may take us a few weeks for us to get back to you, depending on the number of applications we've received. Submitting an application does NOT automatically put you on a waitlist, it simply puts you into the queue to receive an application phone call.
2. For a waitlist addition, a non-refundable $300 deposit is required that will hold your place on your chosen waitlist, and will be applied to your puppy’s final payment. Deposits can be sent via e-transfer and are non-refundable in any case. We will call you and chat BEFORE a deposit will be accepted. Thank you.
3. Your deposit will expire, so you need to let us know your preferred timing. The following waitlists have available openings for new families:
Summer 2021 (specifically August) - limited availability for interested families.
WINTER 2021-2022 (Dec 2021-Feb 2022) - Accepting Applications. Base puppy pricing $2800
If we have additional availability from our earlier waitlists, families on later waitlists will be offered the opportunity to move forward. In this case, we will shift your deposit to the offered waitlist, but other than this, deposits are not transferable between our waitlists as we accept a limited number of families for each period. Each waitlist typically has 8-12 litters to choose from and families have the freedom to select from any of the litters or puppies in their chosen time span and pass on those that don't interest them. The litters will include a variety of sizes, nose lengths and appearances. Your deposit can be applied to any available puppy in your selected waitlist period, and will expire at the end of that timing.
We reserve the number one spot on each waitlist for our special "charity auction". We will invite families to participate and 100% of the proceeds will be donated to International Justice Mission, Compassion International or Saramitans Purse. We'd invite you to check out these incredible organizations and the amazing work they are doing to help those in poverty around the world.
4. The puppy selection process occurs when the puppies are around 6 weeks of age, based on waitlist order, and via the photos, videos and descriptions offered on the website. You will receive an email at that time giving you directions and letting you know that selections are taking place. After requesting a puppy using these resources, you are welcome to visit your puppy at 6-7 weeks of age and confirm that you are pleased with the puppy you asked to be held for you. Full payment can be brought as cash to this puppy viewing appointment, or sent within 24 hours by e-transfer. If you are from out of town or skipping the viewing, final payments are still due by this date.
The base puppy price for our 2022 (including the entirety of our winter waitlist - Dec 2021 to Feb 2022) litters will be $2800. Females, extra tiny sizes and rare coloration may be priced higher ($2950 and up). Prices are for our puppies sold on a 6 month of age spay and neuter contract.
5. Puppy pickup dates are firm, generally set for the Thursday, Friday or Saturday of the puppy's 8 week birthday. If you can't make the puppy pickup dates of a particular litter work because of vacations or other commitments, you'll have plenty other puppy choices from alternative litters and timings. You'll have the opportunity to book the pickup time of your choice once you've selected your puppy. Alternate dates are available for those wanting to have a puppy shipped. Shipping is available to specific locations that Westjet offers and is not a guarantee, so please do not place a deposit if picking up your puppy in person, by flying or driving, is not a possibility.
Just a friendly reminder that we only offer adoptions to families whose youngest human member is age five or older. If you'd like more info on our reason for this, please check out our FAQ section. We're so sorry, but no exceptions.
It goes without saying that all of our puppies come with a two year genetic health warrantee, vet check, initial immunization, deworming, Trupanion insurance trial, life time rehoming policy and unparalleled follow up care. We offer refunds and a return policy on our puppies, so if you take your puppy home and find out your allergies are acting up or you had no idea what puppy management involved, in the first month you are welcome to bring the puppy back and we will refund your payment, minus your deposit. As far as I know, no other breeder offers this degree of an unrestricted return policy, and it’s our way of ensuring that every puppy and every adoption we facilitate is a happy and successful one.
We look forward to matching you with a very special fur-family member!
Please be patient as it may take several weeks to call you regarding your application,
