Bringing home a new puppy is a very important decision an individual or family can make. It is a commitment of many years of caring and personal and financial responsibility.
Our dogs are bred for health, quality, conformation and temperament. We spend a lot of time with our dogs. Whether their future is conformation, therapy, agility, obedience, companionship or the backyard Frisbee champion, our goal is to find perfect homes where the priority is a family pet and companion.
Pricing - Pricing typically ranges from $2200-$2400, however, prices are subject to change, but not after a deposit has been placed and agreement completed. The amounts posted are pet only prices, and require the puppy to be spayed or neutered by 12 months of age. Please realize that purchasing a “Pet” puppy in no way indicates that this puppy is not show or breeding quality. I love placing puppies in forever-spoiled pet homes! However, if you are interested in a puppy to bring into the show ring, a performance dog, or with breeding rights, please contact me.
Deposit/Payment - When you have decided to purchase a puppy from Woodwind Miniatures, a $500.00 deposit is required to hold him/her. Upon receiving signed contract and deposit, the puppy will be placed "on hold" until payment is complete. If deposits are received prior to the litter being born, you will be placed on a deposit list, and that determines the order of choosing a puppy when they are available, in order of deposit received. If a litter is born, and we do not have the right puppy for you, or you are not ready for a puppy at that time, your deposit will place you in line for the next available litter. If I do not have the right puppy for you, I will refund 75% of your deposit. Deposits are only refunded if we mutually agree that a puppy is not available and it is not feasible to wait for another litter. Individual arrangements for payment plans can be discussed as long as all money is cleared before the puppy leaves our home. I accept cash, check, money order, Venmo. When payment is complete arrangements will be made for pick-up, delivery, or shipping.
Deposit/Waiting List - Woodwind Miniatures is a small kennel with a few litters a year, but I do maintain a deposit/waiting list. Whether you are ready for a puppy now, or down the road, please contact me if you are interested in being placed on this list.
Size and Color - I cannot guarantee size or eye color. Eye color can change and size is estimated only. I have no way of knowing for sure if your mini will remain a mini according to the breed standard. As with any breed of dog, some may be smaller, or bigger. But, I have been doing this a long time, and have a pretty good idea of how big your puppy will be at maturity!!
Health Schedule - Puppies will have a health check, tails docked (if needed) and dewclaws removed before they are 3 days old. All our puppies are wormed at 4, 6 and 8 weeks as well as vaccinated with a puppy shot combination at 8 weeks. Your new puppy will be up-to-date for his/her age and health records are provided.
Going Home - Puppies are usually ready to go home at 8-9 weeks of age. Each puppy is sent home with a health and vaccination record, week's supply of food, as well as a puppy pack.
