PUPPY INQUIRIES -
To be considered for a puppy, we will need to have a phone conversation next.
We encourage visits to see how our puppies are raised. We are usually here and can accommodate most schedules.
We have a comprehensive health guarantee covering dog until 5th birthday. As well we cover the dog until 1st birthday for accidental death. See our website for specifics.
HEALTH DETAILS WORTH MENTION: -
We do not mutilate our puppies...they come with dew claws and tails. We will ask that you leave these body parts intact. We have not docked tails or removed dew claws since 2006 - taking this stand years before other breeders dared to.
Our original, foundation stock were all DNA tested for 32+ known genetic disease markers. We do not breed carriers, so their offspring can be “Cleared By Parentage”...meaning they do not carry these disease markers at all. So we can in fact, guarantee puppy will never have one of these diseases. We continue to screen for other genetic or congenital defects and DNA test our current dogs as new testing becomes available. We have tested for nearly 40 genetic disease markers at this stage.
RESERVATIONS & DEPOSITS -
Deposits are $400 and required to hold a puppy or litter reservation. If you are not sure a Connemara is right for you, please do not place a deposit as deposits are non-refundable. Specific
details of deposit agreement
Balance due of $2000 when pups are seven (7) weeks old, after you have picked out your pup. Puppies can go home at eight (8) weeks of age. Payment can be made by cash, Visa, MC, Discover or bank debit card.
We require our families to sign and agree to spaying or neutering their pet.
SALES TAX -
Maine requires a 5.5% "point of sale" tax on puppies sold. This means that if you pick up your puppy anywhere in the state of Maine, we must charge a sales tax.
