HOW TO ADOPT A PUPPY
HOW DO I RESERVE MY PUPPY?
Emails are great (so you do definitely need to email me)! I also do take phone calls at 912-425-9332. 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: All of my puppies are on a "first come, first serve" basis. If you are interested in being notified when new puppies are becoming available on my website, I do have an email 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, so you will have a "heads up" on the exact time they will go active on my site. I'm sorry, but I do not have a waiting list.
DEPOSITS: I do not accept the non-refundable $200 deposit until I post the puppies on my site. Usually, I post my Chihuahuas around the 4 week old period, and I post my Pomeranians around the 7 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.
HOW DO I PAY THE DEPOSIT? I do accept payments by Paypal, but if you don't have a Paypal account, I can send you an invoice by email and you can use your debit or credit card without creating a Paypal account. 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 will accept personal checks through the mail ONLY for deposits, since the check will have time to clear before you get your puppy. I also accept money orders by 2-day mail (in case we need to track it), as well as Western Union and MoneyGram (at Walmart) wire transfers through the mail. Only cash is accepted when you pick up your puppy (NO PERSONAL CHECKS ON PICK-UPS).
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 from me). Two puppies shipping together in the same crate is $375.00 since I will nonly eed to get an extra health certificate from my vet. I only use Delta and United (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.
Please note that shipping will not be available if the temperature is not within 10-85 degrees. The airlines have changed their temperature requirements, so that makes it very difficult to fly puppies during the hot summer months. If you want to fly to Savannah, I will be more than glad to meet you there with your puppy.
PARTIAL DELIVERY: If my schedule allows it, I also provide partial delivery to anywhere that is approximately an hour from my house for a $25 travel fee. This will decrease your round trip by 2 hours. Of course, we love visitors, so you are welcome to pick up your puppy in person!
WHAT HAPPENS AFTER I GET MY PUPPY?
We can assure you that your puppy 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. If your puppy is on a spay/neuter contract, you will get your limited registration papers after I receive written verification (by your vet or by a vet bill) that your pet has been spayed or neutered. Otherwise, you will get your registration papers when you get your puppy.
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 picture is greatly appreciated! Owners are encouraged to call me at any time after they get their puppy with any questions. I am here for the life of your puppy.
I answer calls from 9 a.m. until 8 p.m., Monday through Saturday. If I can't answer the call at the moment, PLEASE leave a message, and I will call you as soon as I can.
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.
