We take a limited number of deposits for our puppies. We only take deposits from people if we think we will have the right puppy for you. Not everyone who calls will be preapproved for a puppy, since we have limited availability. We reserve the right to change breeding plans at any time. Not every breeding will result in pregnancy and other factors may change what females or males we are breeding. Not all of our puppies are breeding or show quality. We reserve the right to refuse to sell a puppy if we feel it is not the right home for that puppy based off of temperament, breeding quality, or show quality.
Step 1: Phone call: To place a deposit, you must be preapproved by phone or in person. 815-876-6796. Once preapproved, the questionnaire and deposit may be sent in. The number of deposits and assumed wait time is listed on the puppy page. Emailing the questionnaire without the phone conversation does not put you on the deposit list.
Step 2: Deposit Questionnaire--must be preapproved to fill out: Answers to the below questions must be emailed to email@example.com. I will not be able to open attachements, so just email the answers directly. Please be specific so I can match up with my notes from the phone conversation. I don't always remember names, but am great at the small details.
Name: Date: Address: City, State, Zip: Phone numbers: Emails: Earliest/Latest to call you: What breed are you wanting? Any specific color, sex, size, personality, energy level, lineage...? What is your experience with this breed and other breeds? Do you have any other pets? Do you have any kids? Do you plan to compete and in what? Are you interested in Breeding? If yes, are you interested in a co-own? These are usually pick of their litter with us having breeding rights or puppies back.
Step 3: Deposit: The deposit to get on the waiting list is $500. 1st pick always goes to First Harmony Farms or a co-own. 2nd pick goes to the stud dog owner if they want one. Then we have people pick puppies in the order we receive deposits. Deposits are not refundable and expire in one year. Entire cost of the puppy is $1000 for a pet home and $1500 for a breeding home. Prices for co-own and pick puppies may vary. We accept Cash, Zelle, or Checks. Zelle is my cell phone number. Checks must be payable to Lynette VandeVenter and mailed to the address below.
