Frequently Asked Questions

PAYMENT


We ask for a $250 NON-REFUNDABLE deposit via PayPal or priority overnight mail to hold puppy. The balance of 1/2 of the purchase price of puppy to be sent immediately via check or money order,  balance & shipping paid via money order at least 1 week before shipping.  We will not ship or release a puppy until FUNDS have cleared our bank.


We guarantee the Aussie puppy to be healthy-pass vet check at shipping; if does not pass for a minor issue that can be treated we will treat at our expense & revet for shipping within 2 weeks and reschedule shipping. (things happen, puppies can have reactions to shots/worming or change in temp). If the puppy does not pass due to more serious issue the deposit can be transferred to another puppy or refunded.   No refunds because markings/eye color aren't as perfect, or you found cheaper, or older, ready to ship puppy elsewhere.                                     


If you want to pay entirely by PayPal we ask for 3% PayPal fee added as shipping/vet crate are direct out of pocket costs.


HEALTH CHECKS


Parents are vet checked for TOTAL breeding soundness (not just hips & eyes) through our vet checks hips & eyes..  and breedings/ lines offspring monitored for genetic health issues. The only proof of genetic problems is in the offspring. We know of breeders that since the parents "hips & eyes" tested OK, they breed them when they know they are producing puppies with other serious genetic problems.   Breeding Adults are neutered/spayed & petted out if they produce puppies that do not have "family" dispositions or are not genetically sound. or we find out there are issues in the "lines."


Puppies have their appropriate vet recommended shots & worming and are vet checked before leaving. Puppies have 2 yr genetic guarantee on hips/eyes.  Please read purchase agreement prior to purchasing.  Please note that the testing of hips/eyes on parents only tells you the dog tested is OK, does NOT tell you the puppies will be OK, the genetics for these problems are recessive and "multi-genetic" and in our opinion, these are not the only genetic issues that should be watched for. Only monitoring the offspring for generations can tell if the genes/problems exist.


REGISTRY 


Dogs/puppies are being registered with ASDR (www.americanstockdog.com) will provide paperwork for NSDR for breeders if desired.


SHIPPING


We do ship costs are $300 for airfare -carrier & vet health cert req. To ship via continental or Alaska airlines, $350 via DELTA,  - please note some airports require express which is a little more - usually small -rural airports. We do our best to get the puppy to the closest large airport to you at a convenient time, but you may need to drive to the larger airport to pick up puppy to save puppy 3-5hrs of layovers.


HEALTH


Puppies will have their vaccinations and deworming according to age ( 2shots & 3+dewormings at 9wks)  and be vet checked healthy prior to leaving


SIZE 


We estimate mature size (i.e. TOY or MINI)  based on the size of parents and of the puppy at 4-6wks- and previous puppies that have matured from this cross/parents (toy to toy mating can get "throwback" too small  mini" .. but cannot guarantee mature size, but they should mature close.. we have been pretty accurate so far.


PET/BREEDER PRICE 


Pet price, the buyer agrees with purchase that the puppy is spayed/neutered and not used for breeding of any kind - even "family pets" or crossbred, nor can the puppy be hardship (without pedigree) registered for breeding -  we hold papers until we receive written proof from vet of spay/neuter.


Breeder price - does not require puppy to be spayed/neutered, We have puppy vet checked for proper bite & both testicles descended if male,  but do not represent that the puppy is "BREEDER QUALITY" or "Show quality".. this "standard/quality" changes with the whims of the people that set them and we don't even know who they are, what is breed or show standard today can change tomorrow.. .. Nor does this guarantee that the puppy will breed in the future.
