GUARANTEE AND OTHER TERMS
NOTE: WE ARE IN NORTHEASTERN (NOT SOUTHERN) ARKANSAS! You can map us online ONLY by our zip code, 72532. Even our address on GPS may send you down the wrong roads so be sure to get directions from me before your trip!

Upon pick up or delivery of puppy, we ACCEPT ONLY CASH for final payment. IF YOU SHOW UP WITH ANYTHING ELSE, YOU'LL BE SENT TO THE LOCAL ATM TO GET CASH or will have to do a bank transfer from you phone or computer, or you may forfeit your deposit!
For those unable to come to us, we can sometimes meet part way at buyer's expense. Four hour round trip is $50, eight hour round trip is $100. I can give a quote on any trip longer than that. We meet at our convenience and I WILL NOT DRIVE ON ICY ROADS! Keep in mind, we must hire kennel help if we're gone for more then an 8 hour round trip, so our prices have to reflect that expense! NOTE: sometimes if we have enough buyers meeting in one general area, they can all split the expenses. If the buyer is not fexible enough to accommodate our schedule, the buyer has to pick up here. But we do what we can within reason to accommodate buyers.
We encourage prospective buyers to come visit our home if at all possible. Visitors are allowed free access to handle our dogs & puppies to see their health, quality, & personality. Puppies are raised in the nursery, the nursery is a big converted walk in closet off the master bedroom. We sleep in the loft because the dogs have the master suite.
Pups are started on their papertraining prior to going to their new homes, housebreaking is the buyer's responsibility, as is all additional puppy shots. Our grown retiring dogs are usually not housebroken, but they're usually already crate trained, and housebreak fairly easily according to our buyers.
So you've decided you want one of our pups? You've called or emailed me to talk everything over with me, asked me to hold a pup until you can get a deposit to me, and want to know what to do next?
(Step 1) Read this ENTIRE page THOROUGHLY, then EMAIL your name, address, home, cell & emergency phone numbers, as well as a statement saying you have read & agree to all terms on my site as of the day of your email. At this point, I'll start holding your puppy or your place on the waiting list.
(Step 2) A non-refundable holding fee or deposit of $250 to get on waiting list or for any available pups (goes toward purchase price).
(step 3) Send personal check, money order, or cashier's check by PRIORITY mail or first class mail with a tracking number... (we also accept bank wire if that's easier for you), and email me the tracking number within 1 business day after commitment to buy, unless we've mutually agreed on other terms in advance. It's imperative that you put your payment in the mail in a timely manner or you risk losing your puppy (it's not how long it takes for payment to get to me, it's how long it takes you to send me proof that it's on the way)! ******** REMEMBER: Your payment is a legal & binding contract & states you agree with the terms set forth on this site, so READ IT ALL THOROUGHLY! Deposit fee is non-refundable unless your puppy is not healthy at it's vet check. If circumstances change and you can't get a puppy when you planned and you let us know in a timely manner, we will put your money toward a future litter (at that point, your fee is good for an additional six months unless we mutually agree on longer terms).
If (through no fault of mine) the buyer can't get their puppy when it's ready to go, buyer may incur boarding fees. Healthy pups are ready to go at eight weeks! A week after they're ready to go, if they're still not picked up, boarding fees of $20 per week go into effect, buyer will be informed well in advance so that they won't have any surprise expenses. This rule does not apply to older puppies that sold at an older age.
Upon pick up or delivery of puppy, we ACCEPT ONLY CASH for final payment. IF YOU SHOW UP WITH ANYTHING ELSE, YOU'LL BE SENT TO THE LOCAL ATM TO GET CASH or will have to do a bank transfer from you phone or computer, or you will forfeit your holding fee!
Always remember to add $25 for the cost of microchip and registering the chip in your name. Every pup is microchipped prior to leaving our premises. The buyer is paying only for the chip.
NOTE: IF YOU MUST BRING YOUR DOGS WHEN YOU VISIT, PLEASE CONFINE THEM TO YOUR VEHICLE (THIS IS FOR YOUR DOG'S PROTECTION AS WELL AS OUR'S)! I have a large dog that may be agressive toward your dogs, not to mention the possibility of passing new strains of bacteria back and forth!
