FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS??
Where do you live?
We ranch 15 minutes outside of Mason, Texas.  We are approx. 2 hours from Austin, San
Antonio, San Angelo:  about 5 to 6 hours from Houston : 4  hours from Fort Wort /Dallas
area. You are welcome to come to the ranch. However, please be advised, that our vet,
Dr. Cordes, does not allow anyone in our kennel area.  The puppies will be brought out of
the kennel for your viewing.  We realize that people are very busy and don't always have
time to come all the way, so we will meet people 1/2 way. For people from Austin and
San Antonio that is Fredericksburg;  San Angelo, Eden : Houston, Georgetown or San
Antonio.  We realize that sometimes people just can't get out of town and we will be happy
to try and work out something if we can.  If we meet you, we will visit with you by phone
to find out what your home is like, what kind of personality you like, etc. If available, we
will bring 2 puppies for you to choose from.

Do you sell your puppies under a neutering agreement?
Yes:  We feel very strongly that all pets should be neutered.  A lot of people think that this
is easy to do and a great way to make a little money. Believe me it is not easy; we have
over 40 years of taking care of all types of animals and it is hard work. It is a real art to
know what male to mate with what female, etc.  Prenatal and postnatal care of mom and
puppies can be a real challenge.

your new puppy.

Do you ever make exceptions to your neutering agreement?
Yes, but it is few and far between.  We sometimes have people tell us they are so sorry
they neutered their little boy and wish they had some grand kids.  If you do not neuter your
little boy by the time he is 6 months old, he is going to be out looking for a little romance.  
When people call crying that their little boy got out from under the fence and is gone, I
always ask "was he neutered" and the answer is always "no." If you think you might want
grand kids, let me know and I will tell you how we can solve this problem.

Do you ship your puppies?
No, not at this time.

What is your deposit policy?
We accept deposits on puppies after they are 4 weeks of age and have been Vet checked.  At
that time, we take 200 dollars for the deposit, please date your check for when the puppies will
be ready.  We do not cash your deposit check until you pick up your puppy.  Your deposit
simply holds you a puppy until it is 8 weeks of age.  At that time, we will meet you and if we
BOTH decide the puppy is to be adopted, we collect the remaining amount of the purchase price.

Are your puppies micro chipped?
All of our puppies are micro chipped at their first vet check.  You will be given a brochure
with the micro chip number allowing you to be entered into a national database in case
your puppy is ever lost.  This is a huge safety factor for more than one reason.  The
database tries to contact the owner of the dog first and if that is unsuccessful, the database
contacts us. This helps to ensure none of our puppies are ever euthanized due to being lost.

Are your puppies registered?
Yes, Our puppies are  AKC registration.  Unless otherwise noted on the pictures.  

What do I get when I purchase a puppy from you?
Our puppies come very happy, well socialized, and vet checked.  We also supply you with toys
that the puppies have been sleeping with (to make your first night a little easier), AKC
registration application, Shot records, Health records, Vet check records from our Vet, Food
(Iams), and an information sheet.
