Deposits and Waiting List Information
If you wish to obtain an Abney Catahoula you must be assigned to our Waiting List. To gain access to our waiting list each client must place a $100.00 non-refundable deposit, which will be included in the final price when you make your purchase. Your deposit is our assurance that you are sincere about owning an Abney Catahoula, and enables us to determine when any breeding should take place. Deposits may be paid in cash, check, money order, or via Paypal. Credit cards may be used via Paypal, only.
Before placing a deposit with us, please be certain that you are willing to wait for your special puppy. We do our best to fulfill the requests of our clients, but, genetics being what they are, we cannot predict which coat or eye color will result from any breeding. Because there are so many variations within our breed, you may have to wait for other litters before you get that special puppy.
Please review Waiting List Factors, Breeding Policy, Shipping
Policy, and Our Guarantee.
Clients are placed on the waiting list in the order of the date deposits are received. Puppies will be offered in the same chronological order as received deposits. Clients should have some idea of what they desire in a puppy prior to placing a deposit.
When the puppies are approximately four (4) weeks of age, the selection process will begin. You will receive, via E-mail, a picture of the entire litter, and a telephone message informing you that the picture has been sent. Puppies will be numbered and identified with their sex, coat and eye color. There may also be a brief description of our observation of each puppy. You will have 24 hours to respond with inquiries, or your selection choice. If I do not receive a response within that time period, I will move on to the next client on the list. It is your responsibility to keep us updated with any changes in your contact information.
When a client refuses a selection, the next client on the list will be offered the opportunity to choose from the remaining puppies. This will continue until all puppies in the litter are placed in new homes. As puppies are chosen, those clients are removed from the waiting list, and everyone below them moves up to the next higher position on the list. If any puppies are not placed with any of the clients on the waiting list, those puppies will be offered openly to the general public, and no other planned breeding will occur until all puppies are placed in new homes.
There are circumstances where a client may desire choosing from a particular breeding, or indicate that they are willing to pay in full, or offer to pay a higher price for the privilege of choosing from that breeding. We will do our best to accommodate each of our clients, but the chronological order of the waiting list will remain.
As was previously stated, deposits are non-refundable; however, deposits remain valid until the day you choose an Abney Catahoula. Should a client be moved from the Active Waiting List, for whatever reason, they will be placed on the Inactive List. They will remain on the Inactive List until such time as we are contacted with their desire to return to the Active List. Their original deposit will still be in effect.
All of our breedings are performed with the intentions of producing healthy puppies that conform to the written standard, and a stable temperament. The starting price on our puppies is $600.00. Higher pricing is determined by bloodline, titles, and/or accomplishments of the breeding pair. There are occasions where puppies could be priced lower. When this occurs, all clients are notified, and the selection process will begin again, starting at the top of the list.
All puppies will be wormed a minimum of three (3) times and have received their first vaccination prior to leaving the kennel. Puppies may not be picked up at the kennel prior to six (6) weeks of age, or be shipped prior to eight (8) weeks of age. Each puppy will be delivered with its UKC and NALC registration papers, a health record, and a quart bag of the food that is currently being fed.
Breeders reserve the right of First choice on all litters, including the entire litter.
