We are a small hobby breeder. We decided to follow our dreams of breeding Goldens once we moved to Tennessee and no longer worked long hours in the auto factory. We will ask you lots of questions, our puppies are the most important thing here and we want to be sure they are going to good homes. We are more than willing to take a puppy back from you if for some reason you can no longer keep them, but we want to do everything we can up front to help prevent that from happening. All of our puppies are sold with a limited registration to PET HOMES ONLY!.
We ask for a $200 deposit which is non-refundable unless we are unable to provide you with a puppy. We will hold your place on the waiting list with your deposit. We have no way of knowing how many puppies will be born or what gender they will be, therefore we do not allow gender picks until the puppies are born and it is done in order of deposit received. We will not hold a puppy for anyone until we have received a deposit from them. The actual puppy pick will take place around 4-5 weeks of age and that is done by order of deposit received.
The price of our puppies is $1500. A deposit can be sent using a personal check, money order or PayPal on our "deposit" page. We require cash for the final payment of $1300 when you are picking up your puppy. We allow the puppies to naturally wean from the mother which means puppies do not go to your home prior to eight weeks old.
Our puppies are whelped and raised inside our home. They are handled very early and on a regular basis. Weather permitting they are taken outside once their eyes are open and they are getting around on all fours. The puppies are wormed at 2, 4 and 6 weeks old, they are examined by our vet and given their first series of vaccinations between 6 and 8 weeks old if this is what you want.
They go home with a record of health from our vet, AKC registration packet and some food to help them acclimate to your feeding program. We would love to talk with you about crating your puppy, feeding and training. Puppies also go home with a written guarantee. If you agree to put your puppy on NuVet Plus from the beginning and keep your puppy on NuVet Plus, we will guarantee your puppy for 3 years against hip dysplasia. If you have any questions or concerns please email us or give us a call. We are very glad you have taken the time to look at our beautiful family.
