IS THE PUPPY STILL AVAILABLE?
Any dog/puppy that is listed on our website, Petfinder, Adopt a Pet, or RescueMe.org is still available for adoption. If we have approved an application and received a deposit, the puppy will be marked adoption pending.
CAN I COME PICK OUT A PUPPY ?
You can not meet our puppies until they are 8 weeks old, and you must have an approved application.
HOW MUCH IS THE DEPOSIT TO HOLD A PUPPY?
We will take a deposit on any puppy under 8 weeks of age. This deposit will hold your puppy until you can pick it up when it reaches 8 weeks of age. $50 will hold your puppy, which you can pay via PayPal once your application is approved. If you come on adoption day and decide not to adopt your deposit will be refunded
WHAT IS YOUR ADOPTION CRITERIA FOR PUPPIES?
1) We rarely adopt to renters. We have this policy because owner surrenders are the highest with renters. Renters are at the mercy of their landlords. If the dog barks or disturbs other residents the landlord may demand the dog leaves. When tenants move not all landlords accept pets, and many dogs are surrendered to shelters because the owner could not take the dog.
2) We normally don’t adopt puppies to households with children under the age of 5 , however this will depend upon the puppy, the age of the puppy and the child.
3) We will only adopt puppies to families who have the time to socialize and train the puppy.
4) We will require a secure physical fence at least 3 ½ feet high. We always look for the best fit…. And consider many other factors
DO YOU ADOPT OUT OF STATE?
We will adopt out of state on a case-by-case basis…. In most circumstances, we will only adopt to neighboring states. We do not ship dogs.
WILL THE PUPPY BE SPAYED/NEUTERED?
We spay/neuter puppies at 12 -14 weeks of age . Puppies 8 weeks old will not be spayed /neutered .
Puppies under 12 weeks of age will leave for their forever homes with a signed spay/neuter contract. This is a legally binding contract which states that you agree to spay/neuter your puppy by a specific date at your own expense. We will require proof of such. If the spay/neuter contract is broken we have the right to take the dog back. We are very strict on this policy and do follow up. Puppies will be up to date on vaccinations and microchipped before going for adoption. The microchip will be registered to S.A.D and will not be transferred to Adopter until the spay/neuter is completed
