PLEASE TAKE NOTE THIS IS NOT OUR CONTRACT
We ask for a reservation/deposit fee of 1/2 (one-half) of the purchase price for Pet/Companion or Show/Breeding Puppies before 7 weeks of age, after 7
weeks of age we no longer take deposits to "hold" puppies, full payment must be made after 7 weeks of age to insure us that you are ready to make a
commitment on loving one of our babies, this fee will be collected once we have a breeding plan started, if you are seriously interested in a puppy please
fill out our On-Line Questionnaire
NO puppy will be held without a deposit and a prospect owner MUST fill out a Questionnaire!
We do NOT sell puppies based on eye color and it's not guaranteed to be in the litter.
Please remember we only get what mother nature gives us and we place puppies into homes best suited for that puppy eye color should NOT a factor in
picking the RIGHT puppy for your home & lifestyle.
We do not have puppies available all year round, we are but a small hobby breeder and we take GREAT pride as well as a LOT of pedigree research to
insure the right breedings take place in order to produce soundness in genetic health & temperaments in our puppies. We ONLY do a breeding in order to
keep a puppy to show & for the future of our breeding program . We have produced puppies that do it all, working/herding, 4-H, Certified Search &
Rescue/Certified Therapy, Seizure Alert Dogs, conformation, agility, rally, free style, fly ball as well as amazing loving pets & companions. References are
available upon request to serious inquiries.
PRICE OF PUPPIES/SHIPPING INFO:
EVERY puppy is priced individual and is FIRM
We are no longer shipping, you are welcome to come to us or we would be willing to meet somewhere for a gas fee, but we are no longer shipping by air. I
can ship by air IN CABIN (puppies only between 8-10 weeks is $125 with Delta & American Airlines not sure about other airlines) for the flight cost, my
time (I am charging a fee for my time as sometime I do not get home within the same day and it's exhausting on myself and with the new covid19 rules and
regulations even longer wait times and added stress & severe anxiety/travel expenses (parking fee/airport fee/food/drinks like water/hotel if need and any
other misc fee) and yes I have done this already once in 2020, several times in 2017-18 & 19
We no longer welcome people onto the property due to parvo exposure risks, we had someone 3 years ago bring parvo to a litter that had been vaccinated
a week prior (and no they didn't buy a puppy nor felt reponsible for lying to me that they went to another breeders place right before mine and ever since
those expensive vet bills and sadly 2 deaths we have stopped allowing people to visit and hope you understand, to get around this I can video and take
photos as well as message video within facebook messenger as long as OnLine Questionnaire and References have checked out and you are approved, I
really rather not waste my time nor yours if you are not seriously interested in a puppy.
Please take note some puppies may not be available because deposits are on them to hold them. I can not hold a puppy without a deposit nor can I
guarantee a certain puppy to be available at 7 & 8 weeks when I have evaluations done on them for show and performance prospect homes, we fit the
puppy to the home, we no longer allow people to pick and have found this to be a great practice in which the right puppy fits with the right home not
specifically on color/sex buyer may want.
We discuss prices after a COMPLETED Questionnaire including references is emailed and talk about payment options
TO PICK A PUPPY:
Please remember each puppy is raised, cared for, loved and socialized.
We try and place each puppy in the home that is best for the dog and the owner/family.
Our On-Line Questionnaire will be required and filled out as well as references from the prospective buyer.
We carefully screen and may also ask to do a home check of some sort for each prospective puppy buyer to make sure the home is the right one for one
of our puppies.
Pet/Companion: A dog that does not meet the structural or aesthetic criteria as laid forth by the American Kennel Club or Australian Shepherd Club of
America. There is nothing inherently wrong with the dog. It just may have a disqualifying fault (such as improper coat color) or a fault severe enough to
prevent it from finishing in the show ring. The dog is still capable of being an active happy member of the family who could still perform in performance
events such as herding, lure coursing, agility, obedience and rally or could easily be certified to become Certified Therapy Working Dogs. All pet quality
puppies are sold on spay/neuter contract and with limited registration ONLY.
Show Exhibition/Breeding or 4-H prospect: These are dogs 8 weeks to 18 months old that at the time of sale do not have any disqualifying or serious faults
that would prevent them from finishing a Championship/breeding after health testing or Working livestock. They are not deemed show quality because so
much changes between 8 weeks and 18 months. It is acknowledged by us that these puppies may not turn out as hoped.
4-H/Performance/Herding/Working: A dog that exhibits good drive in various areas and would be happiest in a home that was willing to train it in various
venues of sport (agility, tracking, herding, etc).
SummeReane sells all puppies on written & signed contracts, guaranteeing health for hereditary defects of eyes, hips, elbows, temperament and against
hereditary epilepsy (I.E.).
Adult dogs sold over 2 years old with all health clearances done and passed will have no genetic health guarantee though will be sold with a normal 72
hour health guarantee that will apply ONLY toward infectious diseases.
