We are happy to take a deposit to hold your puppy. This is the only way you can guarantee your puppy choice. Due to the amount of scammers, the deposit amount will be a predetermined amount between buyer and seller. This will be personalized for you and your needs and wants. The deposit amount will be applied toward the cost of the puppy. The deposit and money you have paid toward your puppy will be forfeited after the puppy turns 9 weeks old, if we have not heard from you. Please let us know what is going on if you have issues. We strive for happiness in our puppies and our customers.

Preparing for Your New Puppy

Getting ready for your new furry friend's arrival is important for a smooth transition. Here's what you'll need to do:

  • Get the Essentials: Before your puppy comes home, make sure you have everything ready. You'll need a collar, leash, a crate (great for training), safe toys, a cozy bed, and sturdy food and water bowls.
  • Set Up the Space: If your puppy will stay outdoors, get a well-insulated doghouse in a sheltered spot. Make sure it's elevated and protected from harsh weather.
  • Plan the Diet: Choose a puppy food that meets their nutritional needs. Look for brands like Purina® Puppy Foods, which are specially formulated for growing pups.
  • Find a Vet: Pick a veterinarian nearby for regular check-ups and emergencies. Ask for recommendations from friends or neighbors. We recommend Dr. John Tarleton in Georgetown.
  • Choose the Right Time: Bring your puppy home at the start of a weekend or during vacation days. This gives you time to settle them in and start training.
  • Travel Plans: Coordinate with the seller about pick-up time and avoid feeding the puppy right before to prevent car sickness.
  • Settle in: Help your puppy adjust to their new home. Supervise interactions with children, and teach them how to handle the puppy gently.
  • Establish a Routine: Take your puppy outside after meals, naps, and playtime to relieve themselves.
  • Medical Records: Bring any immunization records to your vet to start a medical history.
  • Name and Training: Choose a name and stick to it. Consistency is key in training. Crate training can be useful for keeping your puppy safe and housebreaking.

Remember, patience and consistency are essential for a happy relationship with your new puppy.

Buyer’s Responsibilities

  • MAKE SURE you are ready to take responsibility for a puppy and have made arrangements with your landlord BEFORE you make a payment! Deciding that you are just "not ready" once the puppy gets to you is not an option. We will be happy to take the puppy back (shipping at the buyer's expense), but NO REFUND will be given.
  • Refrain from taking the puppy to public places until the puppy has had all its vaccinations. (as recommended by your veterinarian) to ensure full immunity against diseases. This includes but is not limited to dog parks and pet stores such as PetSmart.
  • Provide the puppy with routine preventative care, such as, but not limited to:
  • Annual physical examinations by a licensed veterinarian.
  • Follow veterinarian guidelines for vaccinations and worming.
  • Please understand that owning a puppy means you will incur some vet visits!! Even the healthiest of puppies must see the vet at least once a year!
  • An agreed-upon, non-refundable amount included in the total cost of the puppy, determined by both the buyer and seller.
  • We are happy to keep a puppy longer than 8 weeks, but please make arrangements ahead of time so that we know what is going on. If we are unable to contact you and no arrangements have been made within 8 weeks, the deposit will be forfeited.
  • The balance will be due before the puppy is delivered.

Children's Roles in Pet Care

First, it's great that you want to share the responsibility of pet ownership with your children. However, it's important that you assign age-appropriate tasks. Here are a few examples of what you may expect.

Kids and puppies


A toddler can help parents with pet care simply by being involved — "helping" a parent fill food and water dishes, grooming, going with parents to take the dog for a walk, or going to the veterinarian. Another good trick is to have the toddler give the dog a treat for good behavior, i.e., get in bed or crate before the family leaves the house. The toddler and the pet both enjoy this special job!

The 5-7 Year Old

This age group is capable of doing some of the tasks above (feeding, watering, grooming) without parental help. Still, you can't expect that a child this age will remember to do these jobs without friendly reminders from Mom or Dad.

The 8-12 Year Old

Parents still need to supervise children in this age group for some tasks, like walking the dog. Before a child is 10–12 years of age, it's not advised that they walk a dog without adult supervision. However, the child can feed, water, and play with the dog alone (depending on the dog's temperament and area for exercise).


Depending on your teen's maturity, you can sometimes allow him/her to take full responsibility for the dog, including feeding, cleaning up after, driving to the veterinarian, and exercising the pet. Allowing the teen to take the dog to obedience classes can also be a good activity for both.
