Adoption Information and Pricing
for Riverside Puppies
The puppies may go to their new homes at 8-9 weeks of age. Smaller puppies may need a few extra weeks. The puppies will be up to date on all vaccinations and wormings before leaving our home. Puppies are examined by a licensed veterinarian at 1, 6 and 8 weeks of age (dew claws removed during the first vet visit). The puppy will be microchipped at the second vet visit. Registration papers and a health record will accompany each puppy to their new home. This information should be taken to your veterinarian on the first visit. Your veterinarian will complete the necessary booster shots and rabies vaccine. The puppy should also be placed on a regular worming schedule. It is important to keep your new puppy up to date on all vaccinations.
During the 8 week waiting period I will email information (puppy needs list and current potty training schedule) and pictures every 2 weeks. I like to get to know the families that will be caring for our precious little ones. I am also available for questions at any time, before and after the adoption.
A non-refundable deposit of $200 is required to be
placed on our waiting list. The balance is due within 2 weeks of
shipment (including shipping if necessary). Payments can be sent through the mail with a personal
The puppy will arrive with a health certificate, signed by a licensed veterinarian (ensuring you that your puppy is healthy). The original will accompany the puppy and a copy will be sent to the State of Missouri and the airline (if puppy is air-shipped). The health certificate includes the name of the buyer, my name and my veterinarian. I ask each family to take the puppy to the vet of choice within 3 days of arrival for another complete examination. I offer a 1 year health guarantee for life threatening genetic disorders.
