Pre-Deposit for Waiting List

If you would like to submit a pre-deposit for the waiting list, this will put you first in line for a puppy. This pre-deposit is refundable for 6 months.

This is a refundable deposit. If you find a dog elsewhere first we will refund the pre-deposit and remove you from the list. The pre-deposit determines the date and time you go on the waiting list. We will then send out photos by phone or email as we know the coats of the puppies. It can take from 4 to 5 weeks to  determine the coat with some litters.

NOTE: The pre-deposit becomes a non-refundable deposit once you have chosen your puppy and this will hold the puppy until they are ready to go home. Puppies are usually ready to go home around 8-10 weeks old.

Pay Now Using PayPal

The amount is $200, you can use the PayPal link here OR on the application page. It takes so much longer to mail a deposit so we recommend that you use the PayPal bar for a deposit. It takes both credit and debit cards and is a safe transaction. The deposit holds the puppy until they are ready to go home. Puppies go home after 9 weeks if you need shipping or have a longer drive. The puppies will let me know when they are almost ready to go home. They have to be eating dry food and have a firm tummy as well.

Final Payment

We do not charge the 4% fee for PayPal on the deposits but if you are paying the full amount on the website, we ask that you add the fee of 4% for the remaining balance. If we are shipping the puppy, please send the final balance several days before shipping so we can purchase everything we need prior to shipping. If you are picking up, you can pay the balance in cash and save the 4% in fees or we have a card machine on site that is 2.6% fee.

What Is Included?

Below is a list of items we include with every puppy adopted from Heartfelt Dachshunds.

  • A shot record on vaccines and wormers given to your puppy while with us. Vaccines at 5, 7, and 9 weeks and if they are still with us, 12 and 16 weeks. Wormers are given every 2 weeks and Heartguard started after 12 weeks of age.
  • A bath so it smells like our signature baby powder fresh scent.
  • The AKC papers if we have them already and we mail them to you if they are not.
  • Information and samples on the Life’s Abundance products that we use.
  • A small bag of food to get you started.
  • Information on spaying and neutering your pet (Required if you are not getting Full AKC registration).
  • A copy of the health guarantee
  • A small blanket
  • A lifetime of breeder support

What to bring if you pick the puppy up:

  • Additional towel or blanket
  • Water bottle and small bowl
  • When picking your puppy up by yourself, bring a travel crate. You will not want to hold the puppy while driving on your lap. If the puppy were to jump down by your feet, it could cause a potentially deadly accident.

Puppy Transportation

Buyer is responsible for shipping expenses – We have contacts to fly with your puppy or ground transportation. Ask for additional information.

Puppies are ready to go home at around 8-9 weeks of age or older. The puppies go home with a second set of shots given at 9 weeks along with all the wormers and a blanket.

Puppies should have a vet check-up when they arrive within 72 hours or as soon as a vet is available.

We would never allow a puppy to go home unless they are, to the best of our knowledge, sound and healthy at the time of the sale and free of any diseases. If within 72 hours your vet finds a problem with the puppy that was clearly a problem before the puppy was obtained, the buyer can return the puppy and receive a full refund or choose to get another puppy. This vet check would need to be done by a licensed veterinarian. The puppy would have to be returned to the breeder and any shipping cost, vet bills or other expenses acquired after the puppy left us at Heartfelt Dachshunds would be the responsibility of the buyer. The breeder is not responsible for the death or injury of said puppy due to negligence or carelessness of the buyer, any airline or carrier, its agents, or employees (The airlines carries insurance to cover the puppy in transit with them).

Nutrition and Food

Your new puppy has been raised on Life’s Abundance premium food and the wellness supplement. It is a premium food with no wheat, corn, soy, or by-products. Providing a higher nutritious valued food helps to prevent fast growth, fewer bone problems, fewer vet bills, and promotes longer life. The wellness supplement is formulated to be a new approach to add to the overall nutrient intake that a dog’s body needs. It is the perfect complement to your dog’s diet. It absorbs and assimilates exactly what it needs.

If you continue with Life’s Abundance Nutritional System when you get your puppy home, we are extending our guarantee on the puppy’s health as well. We have visited the manufacturer, traveled with Dr. Jane Bicks and fell in love with her passion for what she does. We have become passionate about Life’s Abundance as well watching what it does for our animals and we think you will love it too.

Buyer acknowledges and affirms that Breeder has recommended for the benefit of the puppy, Life’s Abundance Dog Food and Supplements; however, the use of these products is merely a recommendation of the Breeder, not a guarantee of their effectiveness of efficiency.
