Purchase Process & Options
All of my puppies are strictly placed in well qualified, pre-approved homes. It is essential that I get to know you and your needs before accepting your deposit and sending you home with your new friend. Therefore, I require that you first complete my downloadable questionnaire.
When you have completed the questionnaire please email it back to me for review at firstname.lastname@example.org. Current puppy prices and purchase procedures will be forwarded back to you after my review is complete.
Most of my puppies are sold in advance of birth. The earlier you start the process the higher you end up on the reservation list. Here at DzLegndary Samoyeds I breed for quality puppies not quantity. As AKC Breeder of Merit, all of my puppies are preregistered at the time of sale.
Purchasing a Holistically Bred Puppy
Here at DzLegndary Samoyeds, I believe in raising my puppies in the safest, healthiest, holistic ways possible. As a Certified Integrative Nutrition Health Coach, I am committed to the lifetime wellbeing of my Samoyeds and am always available to offer education and support. I will not automatically vaccinate our puppy. However, I will provide you with vaccination protocol options and follow our vaccination plan for our puppy. I give all puppy deworming at 2, 4, 6, and 8 weeks. All puppies are examined by a veterinarian between seven and eight weeks prior to going to their new homes. I also educate my buyers on minimalistic heartworm preventative and alternative medical treatments available. I require all puppies to remain intact until they are mature and their growth plates have closed, no earlier than 18-months of age. I also require that every DzLegndary Samoyed be fed only the recommended, well vetted dog food and treats in order to ensure proper growth and development. My health guarantee is strictly tied to this requirement. The pets foods I recommend are holistic vet formulated, made in small batches with strict quality and safety controls, have never had a recall, and are shipped directly to our door. I also highly recommend offering fresh organic fruits and veggies to our Sammy on a regular basis.
We Offer Several Ownership Options
Companion Puppy (non-breeding) - This is a puppy placed in a home strictly as a pet. They are placed with limited AKC registrations on spay/neuter contracts. They are not to be shown or bred. Companion puppy reservations are made in advance with approved purchasers via a non-refundable deposit, with balance due at the time of pickup. Of course, deposits are refundable if for any reason we cannot provide a puppy, but not if you change our mind or decide to buy a puppy elsewhere. Most of my puppies are sold prior to birth and my standard waiting period can be 4-6 months.
Companion/Show Potential Puppy - This is a puppy placed in a pet home that has the potential to be shown for Conformation and possibly bred after becoming a finished AKC Champion. All showing and breeding is done by me or a handler approved by me. I retain partial ownership on the AKC registration for showing and breeding purposes only. These puppies receive lots of extra FREE training and grooming. I also have eye exams and OFA hip exams done to certify them before breeding. All the costs involved with showing, exams and breeding are paid for by me. In the end you can have an AKC Champion that will be a candidate for my future breeding program. Some owners like to travel to the shows to sit ringside and root for their dog. Under this ownership option you also have the opportunity to purchase another DzLegndary Samoyed in the future at half the cost.
Companion/Performance Potential Puppy - This is a puppy placed in a pet home that has the potential to compete in performance title events and possibly be bred after earning their performance title. Performance activities include but are not limited to agility, obedience, weight pull, lure coursing, herding, pack hiking, etc. All performance competition is paid for and done by the owners. I retain partial ownership on the AKC registration for breeding purposes only. I also have eye exams and OFA hip exams done to certify them before breeding. All the costs involved with eye exams, hip exams, and breeding are paid for by me. In the end you can have a performance titled dog that will be a candidate for my future breeding program. Under this ownership option you also have the opportunity to purchase another DzLegndary Samoyed in the future at half the cost.
Retired Show Puppy/Young Adult - I always keep puppies from each litter to try out in the show ring. Sometimes those older puppies just don't enjoy the show ring so make them available to loving companion homes. These older puppies or young adults have more training and are ready to jump right into a forever home. Prices for these Samoyeds are set on a case-by-case basis. Please check my Available Samoyeds page if you are interested one of these Samoyeds.
Retired Champion - I love to show my Samoyeds to an AKC Championship title but don't always need to keep them all here to participate in my breeding program. When this happens I make them available to serious fellow breeders, companion homes nearby that will keep them intact, or in some cases to regular companion homes for true retirement (spay/neuter contracts). Prices for these Samoyeds are set on a case-by-case basis. Please check my Available Samoyeds page if you are interested one of these Samoyeds.
Shipping & Delivery
I do not ship puppies, however, I do on occasion ship adults. All costs for shipping will be paid by the new owner. Also, I often travel between Florida and Virginia on other business. Therefore, I sometimes schedule pickups anywhere along my primary route and in a public place only, primarily for safety reasons,.
