HIDDEN CREEK AUSSIES
We offer our families two different options for waiting lists for one of our Aussie puppies.
1. NOTIFICATION LIST – There is no fee to be on this waiting list. You may request to be placed on this list by completing the “Notification List Request Form”. We will notify persons on the notification list of any available puppies after the families on the Priority List have been matched. There are no guarantees being on this list, but you will be notified as soon as we have any available puppies when they are posted on our website. We do expect a reply from you when you receive an email from us, letting us know whether you are interested in any of the available puppies.
2. PRIORITY LIST – To be placed on this list, a $200 Deposit is required to hold your spot and you must complete the “Priority List Request Form”. Your deposit will be applied towards the total purchase price of your puppy. Those on the "Priority List" will be given first choice of the puppies in the order that their deposits were placed. If the sex or color of puppy you requested is not available in the current litter, you will be moved to the next available litter. We will be having multiple litters each year that will allow many opportunities to be matched with a puppy you desire. Selection of puppies must be made early and you will be notified of the date you must select by.
ALL "PRIORITY LIST" DEPOSITS ARE NON-REFUNDABLE. If you request a puppy from a specific litter and are wanting a specific color/sex and that desired puppy is not produced, then your deposit will be moved to the next available litter that is mutually agreed upon by the buyer and seller. You may also choose to wait for the next litter of puppies from that same female.
Once the puppies are born, a $500 "PUPPY DEPOSIT" is required to hold the puppy of your choice until it is ready to be delivered. If you have already placed a "Priority List" deposit of $200, then an additional $300 is required to secure the deposit on the puppy.
“CHANGE OF PUPPY PICK” – If you placed a deposit on one of our puppies and you decided later that you want to select another puppy instead, a “change of litter pick” charge of $100 will apply. This is in addition to the purchase price of the puppy.
Please remember that Hidden Creek Aussies reserves the right to have the first pick of any litter.
Accepted forms of payment for deposits and purchase price may be made with a cash payment(if paying in person) or through PayPal. When using PayPal, please add an additional 3.5% for their handling fee.
If your puppy is being shipped via airline or ground transportation, the remaining balance of the purchase price and additional shipping fees must be made 10 days prior to shipping. It is agreed that the Buyer accepts all responsibility for shipping fees and we will contact the airlines to schedule the flight or ground transportation. Our shipping fees are $500 that includes airfare, airline approved dog carrier with food and water bowls, health certificate, and leash and collar. Puppies are shipped at 9-10 weeks of age.
If you plan to visit our home to pick up your puppy or we are meeting you, puppies are to be picked up at 9 weeks of age, no sooner. If you are unable to pick up your puppy or have them delivered by 10 weeks of age, a boarding fee of $20 per day will be charged and will be due at delivery time. We love to meet our puppies’ new families and are willing to drive a short distance to deliver (within 2 hours). If we need to drive further than 2 hours to meet you, a small travel charge will be applied. It is our preference to have families come to our home to pick up their puppy!
