We are very selective with the homes that we place our dogs. We hope to place the majority of our puppies with responsible, avid hunters. Our breeds thrive on attention from their families and an active, caring home is needed for these dogs. We will place those earning AKC, NAVHDA titles, or those who plan to hunt as priority on our waiting lists as those homes are working to improve the value of our breeding program. However, responisble active pet/companion homes are also accepted/considered.
If there is not a puppy in the available litter, you joined for initially your position will move into the next available
slot on the list. If possible, the puppy Buyer will also be given the opportunity to move to the end of the deposit list
on available puppies of the opposite sex.
Due to the inconvenience created for the breeder and other client or potential client families, you will lose your
deposit if any of the following apply:
1. Changing your mind about the purchase after an amount of time spent occupying a spot on a list. Failure of the
Buyer to complete this purchase would subject Seller to lost opportunities to sell the Puppy to some other Buyer
and retention of the Deposit is meant to compensate Seller for his possible loss.
2. If you fail to confirm your intent of purchase after pups are born or you are non-responsive throughout the
developing stages thereafter.
3. Failure to collect puppy on the scheduled availability dates for that given litter.
4. Failure to use your deposit within 24-months will result in forfeiture of the deposit.
If you choose to push your deposit back, you will no longer be locked into the original price format. If the price increases, you will have to pay whatever the price is at the time you choose to get a puppy.
Picking up Your Puppy
We prefer you pick up your puppy at our home in Kentucky at around 8-10 weeks old. We may be keeping several a few weeks longer for evaluation.
Nosam is not responsible for shipping/delivery of your dog and all costs will be the buyers expense. If you choose to have your puppy delivered, then payment must be received (7-days) before the puppy is set to leave.
If an arrangement is made for a later pick up date, there will be a $50 fee per day to board your puppy. This fee will be required to be paid before the puppy is picked up.
We have a separate document which will be signed at pick up for the full Extent of our guarantee. To create an accurate record of our conversation, The signing of this health guarantee will be recorded.
•To the best of the breeder’s knowledge the puppy is sound, healthy, and free from disease or disability as far as has been discerned.

•It is recommended that the purchaser arrange for a veterinarian examination of the puppy within the first three days after the date of transfer of the puppy for a health checkup. Failure to complete the post sale vet visit within 3 days voids the health warranty.

We reserve the right to have a second option obtained from another veterinarian of our choosing.
