ADOPTION INFORMATION

Dalmatians are beautiful and elegant dogs. However, they are not the right breed for everyone. Please make sure to do your research on their characteristics and needs, before committing to a new puppy.

 

WAITING LIST

To be placed on the Waiting List, all you need to do is to fill out The Puppy Questionnaire (No Deposit/Fee Required) - Kindly, provide complete answers and as many details as possible to help us learn more about you. 

Note, that we rarely have puppies available. The current wait time for a puppy goes from 4 to 6 months, depending on the litter sizes  and the females that are ready for breeding. 

How the "Waiting List" works? - Once your responses to the questionnaire are received and reviewed, you'll be placed on the waiting list and then assign to a Litter of Puppies as they are available and following the same order in which your application was received.

*If you look forward to puppies born out of a specific pair of dogs, please add the note on the Puppy Questionnaire and Contact Us.

While we have chosen not to charge our prospect puppy owners a fee/deposit to be added to the Waiting List, we kindly ask you to let us know if circumstances change and you are not longer interested in one of our puppies. This way, we will be able update the list accordingly and move up the next family in waiting.

If you are interested in visiting our Kennel and meet our Dogs, do not hesitate to contact us! 

CHOOSING YOUR PUPPY

When the new puppies are between 3-4 weeks old, you will be invited to visit our kennel to meet them and choose the one to be become part of your family. 

While we prefer every prospect puppy owner to personally meet the puppies before choosing and making a commitment, in the given case you are unable to visit, we will provide you with as much information as we are able to (weight and size, pictures, videos etc) in order to help you choose. 

The "Picks" are assigned based on the Waiting List sequence and your preferences (gender and color).

After you have chosen your puppy, you are welcome to visit, as many times as you wish, to personally follow on your little one's development. 

REMEMBER: We, as The Breeders, reserve the right to have the first pick of any litter.

Dalmatians are prone to Deafness due to a gene involved in their patchy piebald colouration. About 30% of them are affected with 5% being deaf in both ears. In the given case, your chosen puppy were affected, wether it is bilaterally or unilaterally you'll have the following options:

Bilaterally Deafness:

If you decide to keep your puppy, regardless of his/her disability, we will retain the Deposit of $250 but the 2nd payment of $1450 will be waived.

Bilaterally Deaf Dogs, will require special consideration and commitment.Regardless they still can be great pets.

If you decide to keep your puppy, the full price of the puppy will remain the same, with the balance of $1450.00 due on the Pick Up Day. Dogs with Unilateral Hearing still are great pets and can lead a a fairly normal life.
