Purchasing/Adoption Process.....

​We at Bountiful Dachshunds feel that the well being of our puppies is of utmost importance. Therefore, we strive to match the ideal puppy to the ideal home.  Please read over our website in its entirety and fill out the Prospective Owner Application first, if seriously interested in purchasing one of our puppies.  This is for the purpose of making sure you or your family are on the same page in the purchase of this puppy and it is our questions to you. This is for the well being of this precious animal and your family. Please then email or text us and we will set up a time to personally talk with you on the phone. We include a 12 month guarantee from life-threatening genetic defects with each puppy (to be determined by two veterinarians-yours and ours). This does not cover communicable diseases such as giardia, coccidiosis, worms or unforeseen issues that are non life-threatening, etc. in which was caught in the new owner's care (things can be walked into your home where the puppy may walk or from wherever the pup was placed on the ground). Veterinary care is part of the responsibility and privilege of dog ownership from the time the adoption of the pup/dog goes home with its new owner. If for some reason the new owner is unable to keep his/her puppy, we will always have a home here or will gladly help you place your dog in a responsible and loving home. 


DEPOSITS:
We require a minimum $200-$500 (depending on purchase price) deposit to hold the puppy of your choice. We take PayPal for deposits, be sure to include the 4% surcharge. This is the fee we are charged by PayPal and be sure to make the payment for Family/Friends option. This deposit is your guarantee that I will not place the puppy of your choice with someone else. This deposit also serves as my guarantee that you will be purchasing the puppy you have specified and committed to (knowing the coloring/shading/size could change), therefore the deposit is non-refundable. Deposits are non-transferable "to the next litter" unless discussed with us first and if there's an available puppy. Deposit is only refundable if a puppy is not available for you (if something were to happen to the puppy in our care). Please keep in mind, we have others inquiring often and may be interested in the same pup at the same time and it is on a FIRST COME/FIRST SERVE BASIS...no exceptions!  You will be notified when your puppy is ready to come to its new home. Our puppies must be at least 8 weeks old to leave; however, I will not release him/her until I feel the puppy is ready.  We will also continue their vaccinations and deworming while they're with us. If you have not made arrangements to pick up your puppy, we will assume that this puppy will be available for others, so it's vital that you communicate with us. We understand that some may need to pick their puppy up past 9 weeks of age. If so, we charge a $15 daily fee for your pup to stay here past 9 weeks of age but your pup must be picked up by 12 weeks of age or we'll assume this pup is available to others. 


PAYMENTS:
Our puppies are price $975 and up. We take PayPal for deposits and checks is mailed to me and cleared the bank a week before the puppy is picked up. Final payment is to be paid in cash. We do not accept checks for final payment when picking up your pup...no exceptions. Your pup will not be going home with you if a check is offered. Thank you for your understanding. If you choose to use PayPal for your final payment, please be aware of the surcharge to you of 4% and it's to be made three days before pup pick up. Thank you.


Pricing:
Our puppies are priced $975 and up (this is the pet only pricing). We sell our puppies for pet only and breeding rights are to be discussed through an interview and after an application has been filled out. Breeding rights are for more and ONLY to approved homes. All our puppies are AKC registered and come with AKC Limited Papers (meaning no breeding rights) unless otherwise stated. Papers will be provided once proof of spay/neuter has occured. Please ask your vet about appropriate time to spay/neuter your puppy. We personally feel the best time is once the puppy is fully grown. You may have your puppy DNA tested (we use Wisdom Panel) for $150 but this is a long process and would need to be done if the puppy was placed on hold around 2 weeks of age. 


I RESERVE THE RIGHT TO REFUSE A SALE OF A PUP/PUPS TO PROSPECTIVE BUYERS FOR ANY REASON. Thank you!
