STEP 3 -CHOOSE YOUR PUPPY
You make your pick when the puppies are around 6 weeks of age,
on a pre-determined Selection Day noted on the litter page.
Choosing is an online process.
We serve families all over the country, so you do not travel to us for choosing.
We will provide individual photos and/or videos of the puppies for selection purposes. This is a progressing process, beginning with the 1st-pick family, then 2nd-pick and so on. Each family is sent the link and given time to view and make a selection.
Half the balance for your puppy is due on Puppy Selection Day,
in order to continue to hold your reservation.
(*VERY IMPORTANT: We strive to provide each buyer with physically healthy, socially secure and mentally acute puppy. Also, we seek to improve the quality of the breed. Therefore, in rare cases when we observe an abnormality or receive information of significance from our vet or from a test we've done, we reserve the right NOT to release a puppy even if the buyer has made their choice/pick. In these cases the buyer will be fully reimbursed or given the chance to pick another puppy. We sincerely hope this doesn't happen. It is very rare.)
STEP 4 -PICK UP YOUR PUPPY
You are responsible to pick up your puppy
on the pre-scheduled Pick Up Day noted on the litter page.
This is generally scheduled on the 1st Sunday,
once the puppies are 8-9 weeks, depending on holidays and our schedule.
You will receive an AKC registration application, record of current shots and deworming, proof of vet wellness check, and a Puppy Adoption Contract that will need your signature.
The balance of payment is due by Puppy Pick Up
All payments should be made via PayPal.
*If you are unable to pick up your puppy on the specified date, we can occasionally provide the option to care for your puppy at $100 per week. This option may be based on our schedule and other limitations at the time.
WE DO NOT OFFER SHIPPING
STEP 5 - PHOTOS
We kindly request that you provide photo updates of your puppy.
We love to see how the pups are growing,
and at times add photos to our gallery or social media.
We love go-home, settling in, and milestone photos @ 3, 6, and 12 months old.
HICKORY RIDGE GOLDENS RESERVES ALL RIGHTS TO TAKE BACK THE PUPPY IF THE OWNER HAS MISTREATED THE PUPPY, the NAME OF THE KENNEL, or in case PAYMENTS HAVE FALLEN THROUGH. THE VALUE (if paid, and defined in the Contract) WILL BE REFUNDED.
