Our policies are pretty simple and straight forward. I try to treat people how I would want to be treated when adding a new family member to my family. I don’t ever want to make anyone feel like they are bothering me because they have questions or want more information, I am here to help you get the best fit for your family, so please never feel like you are bothering me. However, as the breeder/owner of these puppies, I reserve the right to refuse anyone a puppy that I am not comfortable with and I have and will exercise this right. These puppies and dogs are my babies and I want to make sure they are going to good homes.
To reserve a puppy
In order to reserve a puppy, a $200 non-refundable deposit is required. There are two types of deposits.
Pre-deposits – Pre-deposits are for puppies who are less than 2 weeks old or who have not been born yet. Pre-deposits can be paid via a paypal invoice that I will send to you or you can mail the deposit to me. This holds your place in line to choose a puppy on a future litter or a new litter.
A standard deposit is for a puppy older than 2 weeks and is for a particular puppy not spoken for with a pre-deposit and those can only be paid for via a paypal invoice.
I will need the following information:
If you want a Male or Female
Both deposits are non-refundable.We have a large waiting list and it isn't fair for us to turn people away. We try our best to make sure we are accurate on the predictions of our future litters to better serve our expecting families but we cannot always predict mother nature. Pre-deposits are first come, first serve, if you are looking for a particular time frame we will work with you the best that we can, so long as you understand that there are things that are sometimes outside of our control.
Picking your New Puppy
Once the babies are born, I send out a birth announcement via email, telling you how labor and delivery went and how many babies were born, etc. Once the puppies are two weeks old, we post pictures of each new baby for people to choose from based on how the deposits were received. I also send out pictures every other weekend so that you can watch your new baby grow with us. And pick up is at ten weeks old.
Picking up your new Puppy
Once the puppy is old enough to leave me and go to his/her new home, there are a couple of different options available to you. You can come to our home and pick him/her up. I will meet you pretty much anywhere in Iowa, but I do ask for fuel reimbursement. If these options are something that you can do, please bring cash as your final payment or you can also pay with a credit/debit card via PayPal now. You do get a receipt for the total amount paid for your puppy. The puppy can also be shipped to you (please see below)
Shipping Your Puppy
Shipping generally costs around $350. If you need your puppy shipped to you there are a couple of things that need to happen. Since I am unable to meet with you in person, I will probably ask you a lot of questions because our puppies are like my babies and I want to make sure that they are going to good homes. After your deposit is paid and once the puppy is near the 8 week old mark, I will start looking for a flight. I ship on Delta or United out of Des Moines, Iowa. Since I work Monday through Friday, we ship on Saturdays. I need the name of the person picking up the puppy, your address as it appears on your license (id), mailing address (if different) and a phone number. Once the reservation is created, I will email you all the important information and flight details. Once this has been emailed to you, I will send you a second paypal invoice for the remaining balance and the cost of the flight (non-refundable) This will need to be paid 72 hours before the flight. The puppy will come with a kennel that he/she is shipped in which is included in the cost of the airfare that I bill to you, so it is yours to keep. Your puppy will also have with him/her tucked in the sealed airline envelope the AKC registration, shot records and any other items that you will need.
Full and Limited Registration
For 99% of people, it will not matter to them if their yorkie is limited (pet) or full (breeding/showing) registration, however there are some people that do care. For those of you who want full registration, I must be completely comfortable that my puppy is not going to end up in a cage somewhere, unloved. I raise yorkies because I love the breed and I love and adore the puppies. I would rather make less money and sell you a pet than make more money and worry about where my puppy is going. I reserve the right to refuse anyone full registration and will use that right if I am not comfortable. So, unless someone specifically asks for full registration, it is defaulted to limited registration.
Your puppy comes with a spay/neuter contract so if you will be breeding your yorkie, you will need to disclose this to me upfront.
Limited Registration (For a Pet) $800-1200
Full Registration (Breeding/Showing) $2000
One Year Health Guarantee
Your puppy will come with a one year health guarantee against anything genetic, this includes things that are a common concern to the breed. Please keep in mind, that a puppy/dog is a living breathing soul and this health guarantee does not guarantee that your baby will never get sick with common illnesses for his/her entire life. We guarantee our puppies because we are confident in the health and wellness of our own dogs and that we try our best to make sure that we are making the breed better with every puppy. When you come and pick up your puppy, we ask that you take your puppy to your vet within 3 days and mail that back along with a signed copy of the health guarantee contract.
Our health guarantee also states that you cannot resell, rehome or abandon this puppy at any time within the dog’s lifetime, you must return the dog back to us, no matter where you live if you can longer keep the puppy – we take our responsibility as a breeder very seriously. We want our new families to be forever homes, so please make sure that you are ready to be fully committed before adopting a puppy from us. We do not want our puppies in a shelter and we want to know where our babies are. We entrust our adoptive families with our babies and it is great trust when we hand over our babies.
