Dalmatian Puppy Frequently asked questions

Frequently Asked Questions

How much do you sell puppies for?

Dalmatian puppies start at $950.

Will the puppies have all their shots?

Yes, and no. The puppies will leave my place being up to date on shots and wormer. My vet recommends a 5-way vaccine at 6, 9 and 12 weeks. At 12 weeks they are old enough for their rabies. Different vets and different locations have different suggestions for vaccines. Please talk to your vet for specific answers.

How old are the puppies when they go to their new homes?

I generally let puppies go to their new homes at 8 weeks old.

They leave with vet records, puppy care package and a little toy or blanket that smells like home to ease the adjustment.

I live…. will you meet me half way?

I would love to say yes to every person traveling distances to get a puppy from me, but it just isn’t something I can commit to. Some litters have as many as 11 puppies. That means 11 people are trying to get their puppy on roughly the same day from me. If I promised to meet each person half-way… Well I don’t need to explain it. I also live on a ranch have lots of chores to do each day. So getting away from the house is very difficult for us.

That said, I do try to help as much as possible. If I know someone that travels your direction I can try to arrange transportation and a lot of times I can arrange travel with another puppy buyer from the same litter.

So don’t be afraid to ask and I will try to help as much as possible.

How does buying a puppy work?

I contact everyone on my email list when I announce a new litter of pups. After a couple notifications one email, I post pups on my web page and Facebook. First come first serve. To get on my email list click here.

Ideally I like people to come and meet the puppies in person, but I know that isn’t always feasible so I can take pictures, videos and I try to explain each pups individual characteristics to help you decide which pup is right for you..

It is only after you have chosen your perfect puppy that I ask for a $200 deposit. That will hold that specific puppy for you. If you have a name picked out, I will start calling the puppy by that name, and I continue to post photos so you can see your baby grow.

Are your dogs BAER hearing tested?

Unfortunately, it is over 8 hours to the nearest BAER hearing testing facility for me. So it isnt something I can do. Butthat being said every breeder I have talked to says they can tell when their pup doesnt hear. They sleep longer, and dont startle at noises and just act a little off.

I have a health guarantee that covers genetic problems like hearing, and knock on wood, I haven’t ever had a genetic health issue with my pups.

I hope this helps. If you have additional questions you are welcome to call me anytime!

Thanks so much!
