Posted 1/31/2017 in facebook group: 

Anyone that is on a list expecting an upcoming pup this year I want you to understand that you will have to invest time, energy and yes money into your puppy. Just please everyone who is looking to adopt from me, you need to plan wisely for your puppy. You need to figure in vet bills, things that may or may not occur during their lifespan. KNOW that is it not easy, if you aren't willing to put in the work time and money then don't even ask for one of my puppies.
My puppies are a lifetime commitment for their entire lifespan. Which is usually 12-16 years. So plan on that time length and everything you would need to raise them, if you can't do it or may not have really thought about all this entails and have second thoughts, let me know, because I would rather know now, then down the road... and have an abused puppy on my hands. I just simply cannot and will not do this again.
It is not fair to me and certainly not fair to the innocent puppy that has no voice and needed protection. 
If you do all this and are really willing to commit, in the end... You get an amazing dog someone to love and comfort you and always has a kiss when you come home waiting. They do so much more for us then we ever could for them. That is the wonderful thing about these dogs. You wont ever find a more loyal and lovable companion!

There is a few tweaks to the contract, most of what I said above is already in the contracts but I added a few more things. This is in the deposit agreement that I will have everyone who is on a confirmed litter sign again, if you don't want to sign it, well then you wont get a puppy. Blunt, but true. I will need them all back once I send them to you in the next week. If you need to mail them, no problem. You can mail them in 3-5 days to me normally. But, if I do not receive these back and you respond to me directly that you KNOW this is a serious adoption and have the funds and time to care for your upcoming puppy you will lose the deposit and your spot will become available to someone else who is willing. 
I just cannot say how important this is to me, I start them off in life on the best foot possible, with the best care and expect that the level of care, love and devotion I give them will continue to be given when leaving my home.

Thanks to everyone out there for all of your support and love, below is the updates, look for an email shortly. I will need it signed and back to me by Tuesday at the latest of next week or you will lose your deposit.

If you have any questions please reach out to me 801-634-7233 or if you have changed your mind about adopting let me know now. I will not be mad, in fact I will be happy you understand everything and are willing to put the puppy first. When you are ready, come back, I will be here. I do not plan on going anywhere or stopping my breeding program. I will consider the last two days a Hiccup - so to speak. :)

 At three -four weeks of age you will come over to my home to visit your puppy! Then we will go over all info you will need to know when bringing your puppy home and go over any questions you may have. We will sign the final contract at that point and the final balance will be due at that time. AKC papers, puppy packet, all food and treats and pee pad will be given to you at that time. Then on adoption day usually four weeks later, I will have your puppies medical records, toy and personalized outfit waiting for you. We usually will be waiting out front to make sure your puppy goes potty before you head home! SO FUN!

The puppy will be in the care of Stefanie Peacock until seller deems the puppy is ready to be released. Upon such determination, seller will notify buyer that puppy is ready to be visited at 3-4 weeks of age. At this time, the buyer will come over for a visit and pay the remaining balance. At that time the seller will give you the AKC papers, signed contract, puppy toys, puppy food, puppy outfit (if name is decided) puppy pee pads, puppy packets, bag of puppy treats and your puppy will have their first check up and dew claws removed at time of visit. We will also take about 15 minutes to go over all information needed to prepare the buyer to be fully ready and prepared for the puppy to go home around the 8 week mark.
(If you live out of state and are adopting, you will not need to come over at 4 weeks. I will Pay Pal you the request for the remaining balance and then on adoption day will go over all that was listed above.)
On the day of adoption, (specified by seller, usually 8 weeks of age) your puppy will be bathed, groomed, toe nails clipped, anal glands cleaned and will come home with their first shots and deworming and their full medical records.
After the seller contacts the buyer to inform of adoption day, and if the buyer does not show up on adoption day at specified time, the buyer will have 3 business days to pick up their puppy or they will lose the puppy to another family. This is a serious adoption. (There will be no refunds – this is a serious adoption and should be taken seriously)
Failure to adhere to this deposit and its associated time line requirements releases seller from the holding clause as outline above.

Also, be aware that this is a serious adoption, plan ahead for any shots, medical visits and such that may occur during your puppy’s lifespan. If you cannot devote all time and love necessary you should not consider adoption. Puppies take time and love and patience.

I do not ship, if you want one of our babies you will need to come out to Utah and pick up your baby in person. I have had people come from California, New York, Colorado, Idaho, Washington State, Georgia, New Jersey and New Mexico. They flew here and enjoyed our beautiful sites here in Utah and then flew back home with their sweet puppy. Check with your airline to make sure they are okay with you bringing the puppy home with you. We will take our dogs with us at times and there are airplane approved bags and you place them in them and then under the seat during take off. Then you can hold them during flight. A lot of vets will suggest a sedative if it is a long flight. Check with your vet for more information on that. 

Puppies are sold on a Spay/Neuter pet contract only. You will need to send me a copy or take a picture of the actual vet receipt from the surgery and send it to me before they are 10 months old. Failure to do so and you could lose your puppy.

If you are interested in full AKC please email or text me.  801-634-7233

Breeding rights will cost an extra $1200.00. The total of your puppy being $1850.00 for FULL AKC.

I am also willing to do puppy trades, Full AKC with ONLY reputable breeders. 

(No Prapso and if your line has a Prapso puppy, I cannot take a trade on that specific pup)

I will trade lines, but will want to meet the parents of the puppy I am adopting and have s/he examined fully by my vet Dr. Anderson before anything is final. Call or text me anytime for more info 801-634-7233

I will not sale my puppies to Brokers, Mills, or Pet Shops under any circumstances! I do investigate all inquiries for FULL AKC.

These puppies are my little sweet hearts and I will turn anyone away who I feel may be dishonest or may have other intentions then having a loving puppy to grow old with.

Thank you and have a wonderful day!
