Application, Pricing & Policies

PRICING

Due to the rising costs of everything these days...especially items we use to raise and produce our amazing puppies...

...including fresh foods (like chicken, beef, vegetables etc), utilities, supplies & veterinary care... just to name a few...pricing may be subject to change.


If the price is all that matters to you when looking for a puppy...

...you have come to the wrong place.

Do not expect me to sell you a Ferrari at Ford Prices!


One should expect average pricing of $2500-$5000.

Some may be more, some may be less & pricing is completely up to me...

...NOT what else you've seen on the internet

...NOT what other breeders are charging

...NOT what your last Chihuahua cost


Many different factors affect pricing (including, but not limited to)

...my time, my time, my time, my time, my time...

...my expertise, my expenses, materials and supplies, availability, litter procurement expenses, veterinary, training & grooming costs...

...and any extras including: shipping/delivery, microchipping...just to name a few.


ALL interested buyers MUST submit a Puppy Buyer Wish List/Application to be considered for a puppy adoption and/or to visit my home.

I'll take your inquiry as seriously as you take the application...

if you can't be bothered to spend 5 minutes sharing some information about yourself, I'm unlikely to take you very seriously.

Sorry...but there are many time wasters on the internet.

****ALL DEPOSITS ARE NONREFUNDABLE AND NONTRANSFERABLE AFTER 3 DAYS****


I do not receive any public funds, charity, hand outs, discounted veterinary care, volunteer services or donations. Everything I put into my breeding program and babies comes out of my own personal pocket, time, energy, heart and resources. I do not receive any hand outs and therefore do not 'hand out' my babies. If you're scouring the internet for the CHEAPEST Chihuahua around and for a breeder to give you "a great deal"...I'm not the breeder for you. If you're looking for a breeder who goes above and beyond on EVERY front to raise her dogs & puppies...including using natural & holistic care and treatments, feeding a homemade raw food diet, limiting toxins and harmful pharmaceuticals, then you SHOULD definitely call to arrange an appointment to meet me and my dogs. Come see, first hand, the difference between puppies and dogs raised by a breeder with heart, passion, and expertise and those sold and brokered by mills, pet stores/backyard breeders and brokers. It's disgusting really.

All prices are subject to change at ANY TIME, for any reason, up to and until a deposit is received on a particular puppy.


POLICIES

*DEPOSITS are required to select and hold a puppy...deposits will be required in the amount of $1000 (or an agreed amount TBD). This deposit is absolutely NON-REFUNDABLE and is considered fair compensation for removing the puppy from the available list and for limiting my ability to market/sell the puppy to others. This amount will be applied to the total purchase price. ALL DEPOSITS ARE NONREFUNDABLE ....if you send a deposit, it is nonrefundable. Even if you find a cheaper puppy or one available sooner or right away...you will lose the deposit you placed to hold the puppy with me. PLEASE BE SURE YOU WANT THE PUPPY OR DOG before sending any deposits. THIS IS NONNEGOTIABLE. Should the seller need to cancel the sale for any reason, the deposit will be refunded. Please be sure you are able to care for and are permitted to purchase a puppy BEFORE sending ANY DEPOSIT or PAYMENTS. (The story you will tell me about needing your deposit back will be a story I have heard before and it will not change the terms of the agreement.) If a full payment is sent PRIOR to pickup/delivery of the puppy, a portion of that payment will be denoted as a NONREFUNDABLE deposit.


*PAYMENTS may ONLY be made in the form of Cash, Cashier's (Bank) Checks, Money Orders, Personal Checks (personal checks cannot be accepted for final payment for a same day pickup) Any remaining balance on pick up/delivery day MUST be paid by cash or CASHIER'S CHECK ONLY. NO IFs ANDs OR BUTs. ***NO DIGITAL (MONEY) TRANSACTIONS WILL BE ACCEPTED UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES!*** In the event any deposits or payments are to be accepted through PayPal...it will ONLY be accepted when sent through the option of sending funds to 'Friends or Family' or 'To Someone You Trust'...this is essentially a cash payment. ABSOLUTELY NO PAYMENTS OR DEPOSITS WILL BE ACCEPTED UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES WITH THE BUYER PROTECTION OPTION ON PAYPAL. The reason for this is PayPal does NOT support or protect sellers/breeders in any sale involving any type of animal or pet and therefore, will side with the buyer to refund their money to them if a buyer disputes the transaction. PayPal will pull the payment from the seller/breeder and the breeder has no recourse to recoup the money OR the puppy. Many unscrupulous buyers (ie scammers) practice this art of deception and fraud routinely on PayPal ...this enables them to receive their money back AND to keep the puppy. PayPal will NOT offer any Seller Protections to breeders on any sale involving live animals or pets...SO a PayPal payment will ONLY be accepted in the form of a payment/transfer from person to person...the 'send funds to someone you trust' option. PERIOD (Don't like it, don't use PayPal.)


*SHIPPING & DELIVERY OPTIONS You have several options for transporting your ChiWowTown baby! Options include one of my personal delivery drivers or an in-flight nanny. Both will ensure a CLEAN, SAFE, PROTECTED and COMFORTABLE journey for your baby to his/her new home! Pricing will vary and start at $500 to $1000, pricing dependent on availability of drivers/nannies, flights and distance. Please note: I WILL NOT SHIP VIA CARGO!! EVER!!! Shipping via cargo puts undo stress on a young puppy. They travel unaccompanied in specified shipping bays of an airplane with no supervision and awful loud engine noise. God forbid there be a medical emergency, no one will be able to attend to the pups until the airplane lands and the luggage is removed. I will NOT subject my babies to that level of stress and angst after leaving me.


*TERMS OF SALE Seller makes no warranty, claim or guarantee as to the puppy/dog's projected adult size, color, weight or features and is sold as “pet quality” only. Purchase price is nonrefundable for any reason. Buyer has the right to have puppy/dog examined by a veterinarian of their choice at their expense within 7 days of purchase. If a life ending health problem is present, the buyer must arrange a return of the puppy/dog at their expense within 24 hours of discovering the problem to qualify for any replacement. The buyer also must provide the seller with a signed statement from the veterinarian stating the diagnosis and prognosis. If the seller’s veterinarian verifies/confirms the prognosis, the buyer will be entitled to another puppy/dog of the same sex and selling price. Upon buyer taking possession of the dog/puppy, seller is not and will not liable or responsible to cover ANY veterinarian/medical expenses pertaining to the purchase or care nor any fees or expenses associated with any extraneous treatments including, but not limited to, any of the following: hypoglycemia (low sugar or sugar crash), persistent or intermittent diarrhea, infections, anemia, kennel cough, hernias, Giardia, Coccidiosis, Distemper, Parvovirus, wormy stools, luxating patella or hydrocephalus. EVERY EFFORT IS MADE TO SELL DOGS FREE OF THESE PROBLEMS. A full necropsy by a licensed veterinarian MUST be completed/submitted to seller in the event of death of puppy/dog. AKC Registration, including Limited or Full, is not guaranteed and is evaluated and determined on a per case basis by the seller/breeder. NO AKC paperwork will be provided at puppy pickup/delivery.


*FORFEITURE OF TRANSACTION Once a pick up/delivery date is set and confirmed, any cancelations or rescheduling may result in additional delivery fees or boarding fees. Two or more cancellation dates or requests to reschedule pick/delivery will result in forfeiture of transaction and deposit. Any transference of deposit will be at the sole discretion of the seller and is not guaranteed.


**REFUNDS After a payment is made in IN FULL upon pickup/delivery of a puppy, no portion of the payment/deposit is refundable. You cannot "return" the puppy for a refund just because you changed your mind. This is NOT Amazon...you're not ordering a coat or pair of shoes you get to try out and send back. Puppies/dogs are a huge commitment...they are living, breathing, helpless beings that require LOVE, constant attention, care, time, money and your mental stamina. There is plenty of time to research, review, seek help & advice, PRIOR to your picking up your new puppy. There are also endless resources available for assistance after you bring the puppy into your home, including friends & family, the internet, Facebook, dog trainers, and most of all, me! Please be sure you and your family are ready for this commitment prior to pick up/delivery. There are breeders and people who believe a "limitless money back guarantee" ensures the safety and well being of a dog or puppy...I, however, believe making sure people understand and agree to the commitment they are making UP FRONT (before the purchase) is the BEST way to ensure people are not acting hastily nor without thorough consideration. Providing people an 'out' without consequence or culpability, is what has gotten this society to the point it is at...adults acting like perpetual children, needing safe spaces when life gets tough while facing no consequences for their actions. If you are not confident that your mental, financial and residential stability is strong or secure enough to withstand whatever may arise from the addition of a new baby into your life...do not do it!


***That being said...if an unforeseen situation arises where a puppy/dog needs to be returned to the seller/breeder by the buyer, this will be considered a surrender. If the seller/breeder feels compensation of any kind is in order, this will be evaluated on a case by case basis and left to the sole discretion of the seller/breeder. This is in NO WAY a warranty or guarantee of any kind. If possible, every effort will be made to determine the best path forward for both the puppy and the buyer. However, if at any point in time a buyer is unable to keep a dog/puppy due to their own personal health issues, loss of home, death or other catastrophe...the breeder/seller will ALWAYS, happily and readily, receive that dog/puppy back as a surrender without compensation...no questions asked!
