Purchase-A-Pup: At MMFR Golden Retrievers, after you have chosen an available puppy, we require a $300.00(non refundable and non transferable) deposit to hold the puppy of your choice until they are fully weaned and ready to be placed at 8 weeks of age. This deposit insures you, the buyer, the puppy of your choice and us, the seller, a committed buyer and can be made thru PayPal(Faster & Easier way to secure a puppy). The hold funds go toward the remaining balance which is due upon pick up(in cash) or a week before puppy leaves if paying thru PayPal. Payments can be made until puppy is ready to go @ (8wks). You can purchase your pup with FULL AKC(Breeding and Show Rights) or without AKC(As a Good Quality Pet) or NOW with LIMITED AKC(*). Price differences are listed above. We Do Not sell AKC applications for a later purchase, so if wanting FULL or Limited price is due at pickup. Trudy's pups will not be sold with FULL AKC, only as pets or limited AKC. All Prices are listed above and are subject to change in between breedings as we deem fit, for example, a price increase on all dog supplies.
Selecting a Puppy: This is how we work placing a Hold($300.00 Deposit-via PayPal) on one of our Golden Retriever puppies. We do not take pre-deposits (meaning money before litter is born) because there is no guarantee that my pregnant mammas will have a smooth delivery, or how many boys/girls etc. We do however take names for our waitlists once a litter has arrived and puppies are 1wk old. This keeps people from waiting on a litter for 6Months or more, that may not happen, I. E. All one gender for the whole litter, female does not get pregnant, looses the litter to delivery issues....etc. It also frees us up to breed when and who we want to and not have to be tied to a waiting list demand.
Waitlist: We take a waitlist for each litter NOW when pups turn 1wk old until waitlist is full. The list is gender specific. Each waitlist will be posted at the bottom of the specific litter page until all deposits to hold have been accepted. We start accepting deposits from our waiting list in the numbered order at about 2 or 3 weeks old(Deposit Date posted to litter page). When a puppy is placed ON HOLD a tab indicator is placed on his or her slot/on their litter page. Available puppies will have Indicator Tabs saying Available. Selections are made based on photos. Photos are posted as a group and individual to the litter page & updated every 3 or so days until all puppies are spoken for. ON Occasion we will have a position or 2 of puppies already ON HOLD in a particular litter. These are either reserved for us or for return customers. Please NOTE: just because a Waitlist is full does not mean puppies will not become available. People fall off the waitlist for many reasons.
Extended Stay: If we can accommodate we will keep a puppy for and extended stay(1Wk ONLY) at a fee of $40.00 Per Day & Night. Our time to vacation and just relax is in between litters. Sometimes this is just a week break, so if we are unable to keep your puppy for an extended period of time then we do expect there to be an alternate plan for your puppy. We let you know a go home date as soon as the litter is born. This gives you eight weeks to plan and prepare. Also we post the due dates, so you can figure that go home is about 8 weeks from the due date...giving you even longer to make arrangements.
Shipping: We no longer offer Air Cargo shipping.
Pups Go Home With: All puppies will come home with Dew claws removed, a vaccine and de-worming record Card showing dates of current age appropriate Vaccines & De-wormings, A health guarantee which needs to be signed by the buyer and seller before puppies leave(Shown Below)and condition of sale. A toy, starter collar, training leash & food sample for pups to have an easier transition. I also give a list of your puppies daily routine & a few helpful instructions for those of you taking in puppies for the first time. We will inclose a receipt for all money paid. Your puppies will have been exposed to TV & in home sounds, Children, Baths & Blowdryer, outside play and potty times. They are raised in our living rooms. We sing to them and expose them to many toys and sounds as well as giving them daily individual attention.
Visits: We as a breeder need to ensure our buyers a healthy puppy, therefore we need to be very protective of our litters. When allowing people to visit, we run the risk of contracting Parvo and other diseases that can be harmful to your puppies and our litters. We do not allow visits as we have multiple litters with multiple puppies and it is too much foot traffic that can expose puppies to outside disease. This is the reason why we put so much effort into our PUPDATES(see below). Your puppy will be joining you in a very short time and we need to ensure that they have not been exposed to any outside diseases. We give a 5way vaccine at 6wks and again at 8wks.
Pupdates: We update PHOTOS of all puppies weekly, on the ads & website.
We also send out weekly emails(Progress Reports), with the photos, to all the families who have placed a hold on one of our puppies, so that you can track your puppies individual growth progress as well. On Occasion we may miss a week because of busy life issues, but we try to accommodate everyone with weekly updates.
