HOW TO ADOPT A PUPPY
HOW DO I RESERVE MY PUPPY?
Emails are great (so you do definitely need to email me), but I really like to personally talk to someone about the puppy they are considering. You are welcome to call me anytime at 912-425-9332. If I cannot answer at the moment, please leave me a message, and I will return your call as soon as possible. I would like to know a little about you to assure that our babies go to good homes only. I will be more than happy to send more photos and answer any questions you may have. NO TEXTS PLEASE.
NOTIFICATION LIST: If you are interested in being notified when new puppies are available, I do have a notification list. You will need to email me and request for your email to be flagged out in order to be notified prior to new puppies being posted on my site. I email people on my notification list approximately 24 hours before puppies will be listed on my site. I do not have a waiting list.
I do not accept the non-refundable $200 deposit until I post the puppies on my site. Usually, I post my Pomchis and Chihuahuas around the 3 week old period, and I post my Pomeranians around the 6 week old period. The deposit is required within 48 hours within the time that I put a puppy on "hold" for you. Since many of my puppies may be reserved early and I do not have a waiting list, it is very important that if you are interested in a particular type/color of puppy, you email me often to see if a litter is on the way. The deposit does go towards the price of the puppy, and the balance is not due until the day of pick-up or two days before the shipping date. All deposits are non-refundable and cannot be transferred to a future puppy.
I do accept payments by Paypal, but if you don't have a Paypal account, I can send you an invoice by email so that you can use your debit or credit card. I do waive the 3% fee on deposits, but if you are paying the remainder by Paypal, you will need to add the 3% fee that Paypal charges me. I also accept Money Orders, preferably by 2-day mail (in case we need to track it), as well as Western Union, MoneyGram, or Walmart-to-Walmart wire transfers. NO PERSONAL CHECKS are accepted at any time, and I only accept cash at pick-up.
HOW DO I GET MY PUPPY?
PICK-UP / SHIPPING: I always prefer pick-up, but will ship, if necessary. I only charge what it costs me to fly your puppy to you. The shipping cost for one puppy is $325.00, which includes airfare (approximately $240), health certificate from the vet ($50), travel crate, bedding, and my trip to the airport in Savannah (an hour and 15 minutes away). Two puppies shipping together in the same crate is $375.00 since I will need to get a second health certificate from my vet. I only use Delta or Continental (they both do a wonderful job) and I always strive to get the shortest flight possible. We ship anywhere in the continental U.S., Canada, Puerto Rico, Alaska, and other countries which can accept pets without excessive quarantine restrictions.
PARTIAL DELIVERY: I also provide delivery to Augusta and Savannah (or anywhere that is approximately an hour and 15 minutes from my house) for a $25 travel fee, if my schedule allows it. This will decrease your round trip by about 2.5 hours. But, of course, you are encouraged to visit us at any time! We love visitors!
WHAT HAPPENS AFTER I GET MY PUPPY?
We can assure you that your puppy has been examined by my vet, is in good health, and has been properly dewormed and vaccinated with his/her first shots. We do provide a written one-year health guarantee for congenital problems. You will be provided with extensive information about taking care of your new family member. I do ask that all new owners call me the day after they get their puppy, just so I can see everything is going great. I want to make sure that the transition period goes smoothly, so I work very hard making sure that my puppies are very socialized, healthy, and totally ready to go to their new homes. I love to stay in touch with people who have gotten puppies from me, so an occasional update and new pictures are greatly appreciated! Owners are encouraged to call me at any time after they get their puppy with any questions or needed advice.
I do not answer calls after 9 p.m., Georgia time. If you call me after that time, please leave a message, and I will call you the following day. I do not take calls, accept visits/pick-ups, or fly puppies on Sundays since I reserve that day for my church and family. No texting please.
