We require a $25 Application Fee - this fee does not guarantee that you will get a puppy. It is not a deposit. This fee means that if the buyer's application is approved, the buyer will be placed on the "To Be Contacted" list. The breeder will let the applicant know within 5 business days of applying if they have been approved to be on the contact list.
Completing this application is a step in the process of acquiring a puppy from Neesa's Doodles, but it does not guarantee the applicant will get a puppy from this or any future litter. While it's unlikely, the breeder reserves the right to refuse any placement at any time.
Deposit Process: Because we are a small breeder, we don't take deposits until puppies are born and prospective buyers have met the puppies.
** Order of received applications is the order we reach out to prospective buyers **
1. Puppies are Born - Yay!!! we email or text everyone who has expressed interest in the litter at this time. please give us a week to contact everyone.
2. Meet the Litter Before you can place a deposit, you must meet the litter, either in person or by video chat. In this way, we ensure that you are getting the best puppy for you and that the puppy is going to a good home. Once you have met them, you can place a deposit on the available puppy of your choice. This starts when the puppies are two weeks of age so that their eyes are open and can safely be handled by humans.
3. Place Deposit Once you have met the puppies, you can place a deposit. It will be on the specific puppy of your choice, please don't expect to be able to change your mind later on unless there has been a cancellation of some sort. Once we receive your deposit (we accept PayPal and Cash) we take that puppy off of the available list. It will be held for you until it is 8 weeks of age, or longer If it is discussed prior to placing a deposit.
GOING HOME: We cannot hold puppies for extended times; it is critical for their social development that the litter departs within a reasonable timeframe. If you have a big vacation planned or have events that would conflict with a young puppy, please know puppies cannot be boarded in a kennel until they have received their full immunizations and their rabies vaccination which cannot be done until 3 months of age.
CONTRACT: We have a contract and will not place a puppy without a signed contract. We believe it's the professional thing to do to memorialize our obligations to each other on paper so there are no questions later, and for that reason, it's a bit lengthy.
SPAY/NEUTER: We require spay/neuter at or before 18 months. If you're a breeder you should probably look elsewhere. This might seem hypocritical at first glance, but we have a take-back provision in our contract. Any puppy from our home always has a home here, and will never experience the fear and burden of life at a shelter. Taking back an unaltered dog into our home poses a significant risk to our own dogs due to canine STDs and the possibility an unaltered dog could be pregnant. Because we take cradle-to-grave "original home" responsibility for the puppies we created, puppies must be de-sexed unless you are under a guardian home agreement.
REGISTRATION PAPERS: Our excellent family companions do not come with registration papers to any registry. You are free to register your dog with the CKC.
