If you see a puppy you decide could be your best friend forever, contact me and we can chat, via email – KateS5@live.com or 217-454-2730. Please leave a message.
Once we decide you are a good fit, they are ready to go home between 7 and 8 weeks old. First shots at 6 weeks, three de wormings, and will have started puppy pad training. (No, they won’t be potty trained. Anyone who tells you an 8 week old puppy is potty trained, well, I have a lakefront property in Arizona to sell you.) But they are pre spoiled and well socialized, if that helps.
Once a non refundable deposit of $100 is made via paypal (or mailed check) I consider them yours, take them off the sites and send you weekly updates till home time. Cash on transfer.
To get them home – come get puppy! If that is a hardship – I will drive One hour to Bloomington, Champaign, Springfield or Raymond. Mornings only.
I will ship, if you beg, but only out of United in Springfield. Mornings only. Because flying puppy costs me over 8 hours of my time, I also charge an extra $125, on top of puppy flight, crate, health certificate and puppy price. Details if needed. Update – at this point in time, no puppies are being shipped because of the heat. They can fly with a companion in cabin, but you must come get them. I will meet you at Springfield or Bloomington IL airports with puppy.
They come home spoiled, adorable, with enough of the food I feed to get them through about a week, till you switch to what you want to feed, a toy, a baby blanket and shot records. Nail clip and a bath. And my slobbery kisses as I say goodbye….
