Adoption Process Frequently Asked Questions

What is the process for getting a puppy?  Our puppies are $3,000 (total) and our deposit/consultation price is a non-refundable $500 and that will hold a spot on the litter of your choice.  We accept 5-6 deposits on each litter prior to being born and will start a waiting list (no deposit needed for a wait-list spot) for any additional puppies after they're born or we've confirmed extra puppies via ultra-sound!  Full payment is due by 7 weeks of age.  We expect reservation lists are expected to fill quickly for each litter!

How can I get my puppy if I live in another state? *We prefer your puppy to be picked up on our puppy pick-up day. This is best for you and your puppy. We also have a puppy nanny service available for about $450. Please contact us for more information on this. You may also choose to meet us at Detroit Metro airport (for $50 charge for our round-trip drive) to take your puppy in-cabin with you to snuggle home on your lap. You will need to bring a crate approved for in-cabin use by the airline of your choice. Please call us to discuss any other options.


What if I can't pick my puppy up on the go-home date? When possible and with advance notice, we are more than happy to keep your puppy for $50 per day (we offer a 3 day grace period) after our go-home date until you are available to get him/her, as we continue to feed, positive-train, socialize, and love on your puppy. This extended-care fee will be added to the final price of your puppy. Please note, this option is in limited availability and is not always possible due to family plans.

What is your selection process? Puppy selection will not take place before 7 weeks of age. It takes time to determine coat and personality type. We will assist families in matching puppies based on temperament most importantly. De-sexed puppies don't have personality difference based on male/female.  We will take your preferences into consideration (size, color, gender) but cannot always guarantee an exact match every time.  Puppies are then selected by the first deposit. For example, first deposit gets first pick, 6th deposit gets 6th pick, etc. Breeder retains right to first (sometimes 2nd) pick for breeding program. If for some reason you are not interested in any puppies from the litter you placed a deposit on, I am happy to transfer your deposit/consultation fee onto the next available litter. 

What happens if you don't have enough puppies for your reservation list? Unfortunately, this can happen on occasion and it's something we cannot avoid.  We are more than happy to transfer your deposit to the next available litter but this is also one instance I would refund your deposit if you would prefer.
