OUR DEPOSIT (Reservation) POLICY
In order to hold or reserve a puppy. We require a small (non-refundable) deposit which is usually 20-25% of the purchase price. This is normally submitted through PayPal* (or can also be reserved via a check) but all puppies are reserved on a first deposit in basis. Your deposit will then be applied against your final balance due of your puppy.
If your deposit is submitted via PayPal, a receipt will be emailed to you (from paypal) please print it and bring it along when picking up your puppy, the website may not be updated immediately and it may go until the next business day until your puppy is marked reserved but don't worry we will honor the first deposit in and if perchance you place a deposit on a puppy that was already reserved by another person we will give you the option to pick another puppy or promptly refund it.
The balance (including 6% tax and microchip registration) of your puppy will be due in cash, check, or credit card via PayPal or Square. There is a 4% buyers fee required when paying the balance with credit card or PayPal. Your puppy however will not be released until full payment(s) has been received in full, and/or funds have been verified. We would like our puppies picked up at/from our address when they are around 8 weeks old and current with their shots, etc
6% Maryland sales tax will be added to the price of the puppy.
If something should happen to your puppy while you have a deposit placed on it; we will let you pick another available puppy, use it to reserve a future puppy on upcoming litters or simply have it refunded. If however you default or cancel and never pick up your puppy after reserving it, your deposit money will be used for it's care and to help off-set the costs of trying to find it another home. We do try to be fair and make allowances for circumstances absolutely beyond your control.
