Cost & Shipping
COST, DEPOSIT, SHIPPING & PAYMENT INFORMATION
I accept payments on puppies until 10 weeks of age. Deposit in the amount of $200 to $500 (NONREFUNDABLE) will be based on the total cost of the puppy. Sufficient time will be allowed for you to contact my vet and references, but I am unable to hold a pet without a deposit! I do not ship or allow pick-up of puppies under 10 weeks of age. Payment in full must arrive
at least 5 days prior to the scheduled shipping date to confirm arrangements. I accept bank transfers, US postal money
orders, or Pay Pal with a 3% fee. The listed methods of payment are safe, secure, and easy to track.
Prices for my Grand Champion or Champion sired litters, will be between $900 to $1,500, depending on confirmation, size, and pedigree. Prices for my litters that are not Grand Champion sired, will be between $700 to $900, depending on confirmation, size, and pedigree. I offer a 1-year genetic health guarantee. PLEASE NOTE: I only breed full-blooded, AKC-registered Chihuahua, I do not breed custom or designer dogs, and I do not mix breeds.
If a puppy is shipped, It is the buyer’s responsibility to make arrangements to pick the puppy up from the airport when puppy arrives. Plan ahead and allow at least one hour for paperwork and transfer of puppy from aircraft to pet terminal.
As of mid 2023 there is still an embargo on shipping live animals.
All puppies will come with a copy of their medical records, vet health certificate, registration application, and written
helpful hints on caring for your new Chihuahua.
U.S. Shipping fees in the US BEGINS at $310. Shipping fees for Canada BEGIN at $425. (See below for International
fees). Please see notice above concerning shipping live animals via airplane.
Additional fees may be required if a mandatory kennel service is required. I usually ship with Delta Airlines, so the weather is often a major factor in determining the date I can ship. There are many airports that do not have facilities to care for live animals. Be sure to check with me to ensure your puppy can be shipped to your location, you may have to travel to a nearby town. With Delta, it is especially difficult to ship into the north central US and Canada.
Be advised Canada has an import fee that has to be paid by the buyer at the time of pick up. The latest update I have
which is YEARS old; buyer pays a 15% Canadian custom fee on the "purchase price" of the dog and a $65 airline "holding" fee.
With advance planning, I am able to ship Internationally. In all cases, I try to ship the puppy on the most direct route with the least amount of layover time. Shipping/quarantine-related fees for most International flights are astronomical and will range from $2,000 and up, this includes shipping/custom/import fees, area-specific shots and procedures, mandatory vet procedures and blood-work. For some countries it includes 7 to 9 months of feed, basic vet, and in-home care to prevent quarantine.
IN ORDER TO PREVENT MY DOGS FROM GOING INTO QUARANTINE WHEN SHIPPING INTERNATIONALLY THEY MAY HAVE TO REMAIN WITH ME UNTIL APPROXIMATELY 9 MONTHS OF AGE TO CONCLUDE ALL TESTS AND SHOTS REQUIRED FOR EXPORT.
The above price includes the basic cost for cargo ticket, airline-approved crate, and vet health certificate, different
countries have specific guidelines that have to be followed. The airlines and/or the import countries set these fees and the breeder has no control over them.
I will be more than happy to provide International references from individuals that have purchased puppies from me and have gone through the extended 9-month waiting period.

If payments are to be made in terms, possession of the puppy shall remain with the seller until all payments have been
received. ** FINAL PAYMENT MUST ARRIVE AT LEAST 5 DAYS PRIOR TO SCHEDULED SHIPPING DATE, DELIVERY OR PICK-UP **
If puppy is to be shipped, date will depend on flights having the least amount of flight and layover times and the age and fitness of puppy (sole discretion of the seller). Weather is a major factor in choosing the date I can ship. Buyer will be advised of the shipping date within 7 days of scheduled flight. If the shipping date is delayed due to weather or fault of the seller, there will be no additional fees charged. If the scheduled shipping date is delayed due to the fault of the purchaser, there will be an additional fee of $1.00 charged per day, per animal, for board, feed and basic vet care.
Puppy is in good health at the time they leave sellers possession. Puppy is warranted against the following pre-existing
conditions: Distemper, Lepto, Hepatitis, Parainfluenza, Hernias, Heart murmur, Hydrocephalus and Parvo for 14 days
after arrival at purchasers home. If at any time during the 14-day warranty, the new owner decides they do not want the puppy, for any reason, return the puppy with all paperwork and supplies. I will have my vet re-inspect the puppy within 10 days. If puppy is in the same health condition as when it was sold, a refund of 1/2 the purchase price will be refunded within 90 days. DEPOSITS ARE NONREFUNDABLE.
Puppy comes with a 1 year limited health guarantee against life threatening genetic diseases. Due to seller's inability to
control conditions once puppy leaves sellers possession, seller's warranty is expressly conditioned upon purchaser
obtaining a physical examination by a veterinarian within 72 hours of receipt. If purchaser chooses not to have puppy
examined within 72 hours the 1 year health guarantee will become null and void. The 1 year genetic health guarantee
begins at puppies date of birth. IN THE EVENT THE PUPPY IS IN ANY WAY INCAPACITATED PRIOR TO SHIPPING, PICK-UP OR DELIVERY, A FULL REFUND, INCLUDING DEPOSIT WILL BE MADE.
All necessary vaccinations and worming for the puppies age have been given. A record of the vaccinations and worming
history will be supplied to purchaser at time of sale. All fees related to shipping and transfer of title of puppy from seller to purchaser shall be the responsibility of the purchaser. Any minor medical decisions related to health procedures or health checks will be at the sellers option (such as dental, testicle, eye, skin, ear and nose checks).
The purchaser must present to the seller written verification from veterinarian as to the illness of the puppy prior to any refund or replacement puppy. Seller reserves the right to a second opinion before refund or replacements are made. Refund will be selling price of puppy only, and will be refunded within 90 days. No care, shipping or vet related expenses will be refunded. A replacement puppy of equal value will be offered from the next comparable quality litter.
IF AT ANY TIME DURING THE LIFE OF MY PET, A SITUATION OCCURS WHERE YOU ARE FORCED TO PART WITH HIM/HER, I HAVE A LIFETIME RETURN POLICY ON EVERY DOG I SELL. JUST RETURN THE DOG TO ME, NO QUESTIONS ASKED. I NEVER WANT ANY OF MY PETS TO EXPERIENCE THE HORROR OF A SHELTER OR FEEL THE LOSS OF LOVE.
