Waiting List and Deposits
-I will notify those that are on the "Waiting List" upon the birth of a healthy litter of puppies so that they can place their deposits first.
-"WAITING LIST" requires a $50.00 FEE and an Approved Application. Upon the birth of a new litter, those having paid the "Waiting List" fee are given first/second choice of the puppies, male or female and the color preference of their choice (red/black tri, red/blue merle) along with a prefered eye color (if you have one), in the order that their deposits were placed. This is due to sometimes having 20+ applications on our puppies and many of them never following through. We need to determine who is willing to wait for one of our litters and not go off and get a puppy elsewhere after submitting their application.
**ALL "WAITING LIST" FEES ARE NON-REFUNDABLE** The wait list fee signifies the serious intention on behalf of the Adopter towards a Bline’s Awesome Aussies puppy. This fee is non-refundable and does NOT apply towards the cost of your puppy. This is an administrative fee. Paid waitlist applicants are limited to the first 6 for each litter. Meaning, we won't collect '50' people on a waitlist. An average litter is 6-10 pups.
A "PUPPY DEPOSIT" of $300 (Aussie)-$500(Aussiedoodle) is required once the puppies are born to hold a puppy until it is ready to be picked up around 8 weeks old. No puppy will be considered on hold until we have received your puppy deposit. The deposit is applied towards the total adoption fee.
**ALL "PUPPY DEPOSITS" ARE NON-REFUNDABLE** . The only exception would be is if something unforeseeable was to happen to your puppy, in which case your deposit would be fully refunded or you may choose to apply your deposit towards the purchase of another available puppy from this litter or another litter. This deposit signifies good intent on the behalf of the Adopter to follow through with the purchase transaction of a puppy.
DEPOSITS/FEES may be made with a Cashiers Check or through the Good Dog website.
ALL APPLICATIONS are submitted through the GoodDog website.
ALL PUPPIES WITH A DEPOSIT PLACED ON THEM MUST BE PAID FOR IN FULL BY THE TIME THEY ARE 8 WEEKS OF AGE.
-You are welcome to pay for your puppy in full at any time or even make several payments on your puppy in advance.
-If you need additional time to pick up your puppy in order to arrange for time off in your schedule, you MUST make arrangements with us in advance. We will charge a nominal additional boarding fee per week.
PICKING YOUR PUPPY
The actual PUPPY PLACEMENT or PUPPY PICK is made in order of deposit received. Ultimately all puppy placements must be approved by the breeder. Puppy Picking or Assignments are usually made around 5-6 weeks of age. We make weekly observations as we watch their grown & development. We can start to recognize the 'Independent, Dominant, Patient, Confident, Shy, Intelligent' pups during these few weeks.
At 7 weeks of age we do official puppy temperament testing using the Volhardt Aptitude Test.
Please remember that we reserve the right to have the first pick of any litter and to recommend the best puppy for each applicant based on your completed application, our professional observations, individual temperaments and individual potential homes. We take into consideration your personal preferences, along with your family make-up and lifestyles, to help make sure you are adopting the best pup for you.
