A minimum of $500 or up to 1/2 of purchase price of pup (depending on cost of pup) must be received before reserving a hold on any puppy. Make sure you can accept the responsibility of a puppy as deposits are non-refundable under any circumstances! After a deposit has been made on your claimed puppy and you change your mind for a different puppy, you may switch your deposit to another puppy or future puppy, HOWEVER, you must do so BEFORE your original puppy is 7 weeks old. A $75 re-stocking fee applies to offset the cost of re-advertising, additional age appropriate vet checks and vaccinations etc..
*Note: Deposits are required for pups that are either not born yet or for pups that are too young to go home. The full balance is due for pups AND/OR adults that are ready for their new homes and deposits do not apply in this circumstance.
The balance may be paid by cash upon pick up at 8 weeks of age, OR by e-transfer one week before pick up (at 7 weeks of age). If the balance due is not received when the puppy is 8 weeks old the deposit is forfeited, contract is void and the puppy will be placed back up for adoption, unless other arrangements are agreed upon under rare circumstances.
If you cannot receive the puppy at 8 weeks of age because of conflicting schedules or for other reasons, I am flexible and I do offer a boarding service of $10/ day to cover the costs of feeding, caring for, veterinary and miscellaneous costs including time spent socializing/training your pup while in my care. This extra cost will be added to your balance and must be paid before the puppy is released to the new owner.
*NOTE: I only accept cash or e-transfer as payment.
**NOTE : Please note that I do not conduct business on Sundays, so no puppy pick-ups will be scheduled on that day.
Puppies are priced individually according to conformation, size, pedigree and color, and is determined at four weeks of age. No exceptions!
Tiny Gem Shih Tzu reserves the right to reserve any "pick of litter (POL)" pups to incorporate into our breeding program. This will be determined at 4 weeks of age when the pups will then be made available to the wait list clients.
VERY RARELY will I offer full registration to APPROVED reputable breeders ONLY. Full registration prices are substantially higher than pet prices.
Any puppy sold with full registration is required to be registered with AKC or CKC whichever is applicable, with the surname "Tiny Gem". If you intend for full registration, please contact us via email and leave you phone number as there will be a strict screening process! This however does not ensure that you will be approved for full breeding rights.
A 10% discount applies to every puppy purchased after the first purchase. From time to time we may lower our price on a puppy to ensure space availability for imminent litters. This does not happen often as our puppies are usually sold very quickly. Please note that the 10% discount on subsequent purchases will not be available to already discounted pups.
Sorry, I do not ship my puppies nor adults via cargo. However, you are more than welcome to come pick the puppy up and fly with him or her in cabin with you. I would love to meet with the families that provide homes for my furbabies! You can make the flight reservations and I will provide the crate and paperwork etc.. These extra costs must be paid along with the balance of the puppy one week before shipment. It takes time to purchase the crate, visit the vet if health certificate and vaccinations if necessary for flight, and any other documentation that is required.
*Note*~ Seller can refuse a sale if deemed necessary at any time.
