Puppy pricing reflects the lineage, temperament, colour, age and economic conditions at the point of the posting of the puppy’s advertisement. The colour of your puppy may change as it matures. Prices will vary on a day-to-day basis. Prices of older puppies may be reduced from their original posting prices.
Your puppy is guaranteed for 3 years of heredity free health problems (this problem would need to be expressed by your Vet and mine). We will replace your puppy with a new puppy should your puppy need to be euthanized within 3 years of the purchase price.
To validate our three-year health guarantee, you must have proof of your puppy/dog of receiving, on an annual basis, a health exam provided by your Vet, as well as, proof that you have kept your puppy/dog on our recommended Purina ProPlan Chicken or Lamb diet.
Cash, e-transfer or a credit card are processed at the point of choosing your puppy. With all three methods of payment, you and yours are guided through the puppy choice elements, where we ensure that the puppy temperament matches your family’s characteristics and life style.
