Puppy Reservation Information and Process

 

Please read over this reservation process and my philosophy carefully BEFORE you contact me

  • Contact me by phone or email in order to begin the application/interview process:
    Maria Franklin 615-822-7117 or
    marigld@comcast.net

  • After I review and approve your interview, you will be placed on my waiting list in the order of when you were approved and you will be sent an information packet on the litter

  • Contracts are signed when the puppy goes home.  A copy of my contract is included in the information packet so that you may read it carefully and ask any questions you may have.

  • Please note:  While I will try my very best to place a puppy with you from the litter in which you are interested, being put on the waiting list does not guarantee you will receive a puppy from a particular litter.  There are simply too many variables involved in placing puppies to promise anyone a particular puppy from a particular litter.  Things such as litter size, how many show puppies are in the litter, sex of the puppies available etc. are simply a few of the variables.  In some cases, especially with small litters, their may be NO pet puppies available if all the puppies seem to be show quality.  If it happens that there is not a puppy available from the particular litter you are waiting for, you have the option of waiting for the next letter.

  • I always reserve the right to decide who receives one of my puppies.  Finding the right home for each puppy is of utmost importance to me.

  • You ALWAYS have the right to decide not to take a puppy even at the last minute.  I never want anyone to feel that they must take a puppy once they have been put on the waiting list.  I also do not have any problem with people being on a waiting list for other breeders as well.

  • Show quality puppies are ALWAYS chosen first and their placement takes priority over the choosing of pet puppies.  This is in part due to the particular requirements for show puppies.  Show quality puppies are ONLY placed in homes where I feel they will be shown.

  • As a general rule, I will be choosing which puppies go to which homes.  Of course, this is done in close consultation with the puppy buyer to insure that everyone gets the puppy who best fits their requirements.

  • If none of the puppies available are suitable for your needs, you may wait for the next litter or go to another breeder.  I am always happy to make referrals to other reputable breeders.

  • Puppies usually will go home between 7 - 9 weeks depending on when I am able to determine which puppies are potential show dogs and if the pups are mature enough to go home.
