I meet with ALL prospective buyers so they can visit with the pups, see parents (unless an outside stud has been used, in which case photo of sire) and we can decide if one is a good fit for you.
There will be the usual non-breeding contract with the full purchase price refund for the lifetime of the dog.
Puppies must be 8 weeks old to leave for their new homes.
I am now able to accept credit cards and PayPal.
Copies of all medical clearance certificates and forms are given to each puppy buyer so they can be assured the tests were actually done. Those forms are also very helpful for the vets that will be caring for these puppies once they go to their new homes.
Sufficient people interested in these puppies have already made appointments at this time.
If you would like to know when future litters are planned and born, or when a young adult or retired adult is available, sign up for the newsletter to be sent to your email.
That way you are the first to know what's happening.
It replaces the traditional "waiting list" so you know when there are sheltie puppies for sale and can call or email to make a puppy visit appointment.
You also get updates on new pages and useful dog supplies and equipment to keep your pup healthy and happy.
Occasionally I have young adults also available.
Some breeders who offer sheltie puppies for sale, do not do what I do to ensure healthy dogs and bitches are bred. That is why they can sell their pups so cheaply. They also do not come with any return guarantees or any written contracts as my puppies do.
As with all things, you have a choice as to what level of quality product you wish to buy. For what amounts to a 10-15 year relationship with your dog, I believe that the better the quality, the better chances for happy, carefree time together.
With a Yankee Sheltie you are getting a puppy that was produced utilizing the best practices, the best nutrition, the best knowledge that I have. That is because I enjoy this activity and enjoy learning about canine care. I am passionate about raising dog breeding to an art form.
In addition, it has become a common occurrence for animal rights activists to lie, cheat, harass, destroy property and break laws in order to take dogs away from owners and breeders.
Animal control agencies and local government can no longer be trusted to uphold the law. They are increasingly involved in illegal search and seizures, confiscation of property (dogs), and unwarranted, unsubstantiated destruction of a person's good name.
Because of this growing breeder-unfriendly atmosphere I am even more committed to keeping my activities above reproach so that NO ONE can take my dogs away or prevent me from providing sheltie puppies for sale who are good, healthy, happy dogs that you can enjoy for a very long time.
I can implant a microchip before you take your puppy home and register the chip for you. It's something a lot of puppy owners would like and one less thing to plan on your own.
Basic Microchip is an additional $35. Please see my page on the microchip for specifics.
I can also register your pup with AKC. ($35 for me to send in a basic registration for you).
Since AKC now offers a short term free vet services health plan for free, it's worth your while. Just decide on a registered name for your pup and I'll do the rest for you. Please go to this page for further info.
If you are still researching whether this is the right breed for you, check out the page on Sheltie Personality. I'd rather see you choose a different breed than make a mistake on the type of dog that would work best for your household. Just because these sheltie puppies for sale are cute, doesn't mean you'd enjoy them for a lifetime unless they are a good match for you.
Puppies are for sale to approved homes. We reserve the right to make the final determination if a sale is to be made. This is in an effort to make a good match.
There is so much more that puppies go through before they ever reach the arms of their new owner. If you are interested in a little "back story" on what happens here at Yankee Shetland Sheepdogs, try the links at the bottom of the page. After all, you want one that is beautiful, healthy, and fun.
