In order to get on to our list, we ask that you complete the short questionnaire here. This gives us a sense of your situation so we know if it looks like we would be a fit. Obviously we need to meet you ahead of time to know for sure if both of us want to have a 12 plus year relationship with one another. Because that is what happens we you get a puppy from us.
If you are on our list for a puppy
- We will tell you when we are expecting a litter.
- We will tell you when we have confirmed puppies are on the way after an ultrasound. Please let us know if you are no longer interested because we are turning people away.
- We will tell you how many puppies we expect after an X-ray.
When the puppies are on the ground and stable we will contact you again and ask that you send a deposit. This deposit is non-refundable if you change your mind. If for some reason we don’t have a puppy for you or the chemistry is not right, we will return the deposit. If there are more people on the list than we have puppies available, the order of the deposits matters. But we try not to let that happen.
If you have children we will need to meet them as well. If you have very young children who have not grown up with a dog, we are probably not your source for a puppy. Puppies have very sharp teeth and toddlers dangle their fingers at just the wrong height. And when the children raise their hands up this translates into ‘please jump on me’ to the puppy. Not a good experience for anyone. Also we remember how much work small children were. And we know how much work a puppy is. We’re not sure there are enough hours in the day to do both.
Puppies are ready to go home between eight and nine weeks. We microchip all puppies before they leave. When we get your deposit, we will send you a link to the Sunbeam Puppy Packet which has more information that you ever want to know. With luck, we can also send you a link to find it on the iBook store so you can have it on your iPad or iPhone.
BUT YOU MAY NOT WANT A SUNBEAM PUPPY. READ ON.
