First off, please realize, we are very busy here. We raise miniature Boxers, miniature aussiedoodles, horses, cows, (much feeding and fence building and repairing) a garden, and let's not forget the kids and a family life that is more important to us than ANY business deal. Having said that, emailing and calling me to ask questions that are clearly answered on my site already, really provokes frustration when my time is already limited and I have already taken the time to address it. I have no problem just chatting and getting to know you. I just like you to already have at least some direction on which way you are leaning. I hope you can understand this and we can do our best to work together. ;o)
CALL OR EMAIL ME AFTER READING THIS PAGE:
1) Do you have puppies available?
a)please look here http://miniatureboxer.net/photo2_1.html OR http://miniatureboxer.net/photo2_1.html
b) Do your dogs hunt?
1) Miniature Boxers are considered hunting dogs by classification. We can not guarantee that your dog will hunt but most do possess the instincts required if you are a good trainer.
2) How much is this puppy or that puppy?
a) look here: http://miniatureboxer.net/rich_text_1.html
3) How big will this or that puppy get?
a) look here http://miniatureboxer.net/about.html
4) When do I get to choose my puppy?
a) We typically begin choosing at 5 weeks of age but if the person who is first in line would like to choose sooner, the process can begin sooner. No one is "required" to choose before 5 weeks though.
5) How does choosing my puppy work? See here http://miniatureboxer.net/catalog_5.html
6) What happens next?
a) After placing a deposit on a litter, we wait for the puppies to arrive if they are not already here. I will notify you via email if you are on the reservation list typically within 24 hours of delivery.
b) After your puppy is chosen, you wait again until about 10-14 days prior to your puppies 8 week birthdate. At that time, I will send out a "Shipping Notice". This notice will tell you what you will need to do next. Such as what food exactly to order, what exact date we "project" to ship and other information needed from you as well as payment due date reminder.
7) How exactly is shipping done? How much does it cost?
a) Both of those questions and most others are answered right here: http://miniatureboxer.net/whats_new.html
8) How do I make payment or place a deposit?
a) Right here: http://miniatureboxer.net/about_1.html
b) Are deposits refundable?
9) Are deposits transferrable to other people and other litters?
10) Does price of deposit come off of total puppy price?
11) Do you allow visitors?
a) Yes we do allow visitors after the puppies have their first parvo shot at about 4 weeks of age.
b)We will allow puppy visits in our home and adult dog visits over the hill near the start of our driveway. We are more than happy to let you see the dogs and interact with them but must worry about safety first. As parvo and other sickness can be brought to our home on bottom of shoes, tires, and clothing.
12) Do you have a runt?
a) Likely not. These are a mixed breed of dog still with both large and small dog genes. Small puppies are in every litter as they are genetically small but not considered a runt.
13) Can I have the Runt? Or "smaller" puppy?
a) That depends on if it is available when it is your turn to choose.
14) Are females smaller or calmer than males?
a) No, both females and males can be bigger or smaller in the litter. Both male and female dogs have their own energy levels and personalities that can not be stereotyped with ANY degree of accuracy.
15) Are the puppies trained at all?
16) What food is my puppy eating?
a) See here: http://miniatureboxer.net/photo2_2.html
17) What shots has my puppy had?
a) One to Two Neopar shots. ( Parvo vaccine )
18) Is my puppy guaranteed?
a) Yes your puppy is guaranteed against life threatening genetic defects. The guarantee will provide a "replacement" puppy at a later date when you are ready. You may still keep your defective puppy and make any vet decisions you see fit without my interference. You may also transfer your replacement puppy to a friend or relative. Please understand that we will not send you a cash refund as we do not have any say in ANY of the food you feed, vaccinations you give, environment in which you keep your dog, cleaners or other known carcinogens you use around your dog.....or on any stress or strain you may expose your puppy or adult dog. Therefore, we will not be financially responsible for any unforeseen issues that arise. However, in all fairness, we will replace your puppy and allow you to keep the original. We have had very good luck health wise with our breeding program and do not expect any issues. The guarantee is just in case something does go wrong.
