Terms of Sale

Bill of Sale --- AKC Great Pyrenees Livestock Guardian dogs

 SPECIFIC PUPPIES WILL ONLY BE HELD AFTER WE RECEIVE A $300 DEPOSIT.   Promises of payment are not sufficient to hold specific puppies.   If you are mailing a check, we cannot promise that your chosen puppy will still be available when check is cleared, but you will get a puppy of your chosen gender if check is received within 5 days of the agreement.  PAYPAL is the preferred method of deposit, and we expect cash for the full balance at time of pickup.  Puppies being shipped can be paid in full via Paypal or a personal check mailed three weeks before ship date.   A bill of sale will be returned immediately upon receipt of payment. To use Paypal, go to https://www.paypal.com/home , and send payment to [email protected]    If you have an account, you can login; if not, just click "send money" and it will direct you to credit card payment.  PLEASE EMAIL BEFORE SENDING A DEPOSIT TO BE SURE A PUPPY IS AVAILABLE. 

DEPOSITS ARE NON-REFUNDABLE except in case of an injury or illness of your selected puppy before pickup.  If no replacements are available from the same litter, your deposit will be moved to the next available litter, or you may get a refund if there is a physical problem with the pup.   If you simply change your mind regarding a puppy purchase for any reason and notify us before the pup reaches 6 weeks of age, you may bump your deposit to the next available litter (within 1 calendar year) or forfeit the deposit.   

PUPS BEGIN THE BONDING PERIOD AT 8 WEEKS OF AGE, and should be picked up as close to this date as possible. Pups picked up at 9 weeks of age or later will incur a fee of $50 per week to cover extra vaccines, deworming, food, and care. Pup must be paid in full by 9 weeks of age if pickup is delayed. Pup will continue to be exposed to livestock and work with the adult dogs. Seller will NOT house train or obedience train due to the demands of a busy farm. 


PRICE: $1500 includes first shots and worming and AKC papers for FULL REGISTRATION with breeding and show rights, as well as microchip.  It is our discretion as to which puppies qualify for full registration as they must meet breed standard in every respect, and have a temperament that we deem worthy to pass onto future generations. We reserve the right to assign pups based on their temperaments and conformation and the purpose for which they are sold (livestock guardians, family pet, breeding, show potential). SOLID WHITE pups meeting breed standard are sold with Full AKC Registration only, due to the high demand for this color and limited number. The FULL Registration pups are sold with a FULL HEALTH GUARANTEE which covers any illness within 3 days of purchase, genetic defect that inhibits normal function diagnosed within 1 year, and hip dysplasia diagnosed by 2 years of age (through OFA or PennHip evaluation).  The warranty gives full purchase price back with return of pet or death due to genetic condition (with veterinary statement).  Return transportation arrangements and costs are the sole responsibility of the buyer. Exception is loss during air travel which would be fully refunded including transportation. 

Some pups will be available at $1200 for LIMITED AKC REGISTRATION, for pets or livestock guardians, but no breeding or show rights.  Includes first shots and worming,  AKC application as well as microchip. These pups have Limited Health Guarantee for exchange or money back guarantee with return of pup for: infectious disease incurred within  3 days of purchase, or congenital conditions that inhibit normal working activities  (not cosmetic issues) diagnosed within 12 months (veterinary statement required).  The pups chosen for Limited Registration will be just as healthy and vibrant and personable as the full registration pups, without the privileges of breeding or show.  Limited Registration pups may have minor imperfections (i.e., minimal overbite, pigmentation not yet fully developed by time of pickup, tiny umbilical hernia not affecting health), but not disqualifications. Most of these imperfections resolve by adulthood without intervention.

PLUS Air Cargo fare for airline shipping, plus cost of crate (shipping estimate total $600-800 depending on puppy weight and crate size).  Health certificate will be provided.  Can also deliver by car for $2.00 per one-way mile within 300 miles (must pay minimum of $100), or of course you may pick up your pup in person.  We are located in ZIP 30565.

Any pups held after purchase beyond 9 weeks of age will be charged an additional $50 per week, to include extra vaccines, deworming, food & farm training.   We will not house train or crate train pups due to busy schedule of farm.

  • Spays & Neuters on giant breed dogs should be delayed until 1 year of age for proper bone growth.  Females will generally come in heat at 10-12 months. Care should be taken to note vulva size, as early spay can also lead to recessed vulva and its associated problems
  • Pups have been fed Purina Puppy Chow for large breeds. Feed young pups 3 times daily until 4 months, then twice daily.  DO NOT OVERFEED as excess can lead to orthopedic problems. 
  • These puppies are healthy at time of sale.  FULL REGISTRATION PUPS ($1500) have a FULL HEALTH GUARANTEE with exchange or money back guarantee with return of pup for: infectious disease incurred within  3 days of purchase, congenital defects diagnosed within 1 year that inhibit normal working activities or breeding, or Hip Dysplasia diagnosed within 2 years of purchase via OFA or PennHip testing.  We do NOT guarantee show conformation, performance or ability. 
  • LIMITED REGISTRATION PUPS($1200) have Limited Health Guarantee for exchange or money back guarantee with return of pup for: infectious disease incurred within  3 days of purchase, or congenital conditions that inhibit normal working activities  (not cosmetic issues) diagnosed within 12 months (veterinary statement required).
  • Under no circumstances will we pay veterinary expenses after the pup leaves our farm.  If your pup is found to be ill within the warranty period for a covered condition, pup should be returned for refund or exchange.  If you choose to keep puppy with problem, you assume all financial responsibility and negate money back guarantee for that condition.
  • Assuming purchase at 8 weeks of age, an OFA or equivalent exam should be done on Full Registration pups at 2 years of age if warranty conditions are desired. OFA guarantee expires at that time. Preliminary readings are acceptable.  Hips are guaranteed in Full Registration against hip dysplasia for 2 years with OFA reading of Fair or better. EARLY SPAY OR NEUTER BEFORE 12 MONTHS OF AGE WILL VOID WARRANTY OF ORTHOPEDIC PROBLEMS.   EXCESSIVE CRATING (more than three hours during daytime hours) WILL ALSO VOID THE ORTHOPEDIC WARRANTY DUE TO ADVERSE EFFECT ON LONG BONE DEVELOPMENT.
  • Medical reasons for return must have veterinarian's statement. Parasite control and nutritional needs require ongoing care, and warranty does not cover preventable diseases after 3 days. Pups will be dewormed frequently before leaving, and fecals done, but they do originate from a farm with many species of domestic and wild animals. A parasite-free pup is desired but not guaranteed due to exposure of working environment.  Pups are not fully protected from infectious disease until vaccine series is complete, so care should be taken not to expose pups in public places (dog parks, public walkways, beaches, groomers, vet offices, etc), and vaccines should be done in a timely manner.
  • A NOTE ABOUT "RUNTS"! Many people are afraid to choose the smaller puppies of the litter, thinking that the young puppy size reflects mature weight. That is generally not true - unless there is some sort of birth defect causing poor growth which would be found on veterinary physical exam. It is important to understand "gestational age". The females are in heat for about 3 weeks, and are fertile during the middle part of the cycle. They continue to ovulate all during the fertile part of the cycle, about ten days. If bred more than once during the fertile time, puppies are conceived at different times and there may be as much as 10 days difference in actual age of the pups at time delivery. Sperm can also live in the reproductive tract for up to five days, so can fertilize eggs even if no further breedings occur. The most important thing to note is that the puppies are all growing at the same RATE, i.e. Puppy #10 should weigh the same thing at week 3 that Puppy #2 weighed at 2 weeks of age, and the growth curve continually goes up at a steady rate. We have never yet seen our smallest birthweight puppies fail to achieve expected adult size.
  • If sold with breeding rights, buyer agrees to responsible breeding practices, including waiting until 2 years of age with hip evaluation; exceptional nutrition, staying current on disease prevention and veterinary care, and doing health screens to maintain a healthy genetic base.
  • If you need to place the animal for any reason after the warranty period, we will take it back with no refund, and place in a new home. If you place the dog yourself, please inform us of the transaction.
  • Our warranty includes exchange for equivalent value puppy if available, or reimbursement of purchase price only with return of dog or vet statement of death during the warranty period, and only for covered conditions. Return transportation costs are paid by buyer.
  • This warranty does not cover any veterinary expenses after puppy leaves our premises. A veterinary exam is recommended within the first 3 days after purchase to confirm health.
  • Transportation costs will be paid by the Buyer. Costs will be agreed upon between Buyer and Seller prior to delivery, if seller delivers. Any return transportation arrangements for refund in warranty period, or return after warranty period must be made by buyer.
