Scroll to bottom for Puppy Purchasing Information.
Please email for more information:
Many of the Texas Heeler puppies are born naturally docked. Some of the remaining puppies will have their tails docked and dew claws removed. (A tail and dew claws can remain untouched if I have added your information to our "Notification List" with specific instructions about tails and claws. We will dock and remove dew claws accordingly).
I am completely open to personal preference as I understand some people prefer a docked tail to a full tail and vice versa. Tails and dew claws are removed at or before 5 days of age. If you want a tail docked that is not naturally docked, I will need this information to add to the "Notification List" for reference once puppies have been born. I generally remove all dew claws unless otherwise noted. Again, if you want dew claws to remain intact, I will need to know during our conversation.
INFO FOR NOTIFICATION LIST AND DEPOSIT
** DEPOSITS & PAYMENTS are NON-REFUNDABLE!! Please be sure you are ready to commit to a puppy before sending a deposit to hold position going into expected litter. **
$200 NON-REFUNDABLE deposit to secure a position on the Deposit/Notification list for upcoming litters.
The deposit can transfer to another litter within 1 year of Deposit date.
I will only take 6 deposits towards a specific litter, then I will add names after those 6 positions to notify upon Available Puppies from that litter.
Please verify by phone or e-mail that you are sending a deposit.
Puppy Selection will be held for 5 days while deposit is en route.
If not received within 5 days, said Puppy Selection will be offered again to public.
Choice can be made by pictures/videos, in person, or ALT Texas Heelers can pick a pup according to your description and availability.
New owners will receive digital photos and videos by e-mail of puppies from birth until placement in their new homes.
Puppies can be picked up anytime after 6 weeks of age but at or before 8 weeks of age.
If puppies remain here after 8 weeks of age, a $20 per day boarding fee will be assessed.
The total balance for the pup is due upon pick up.
(Sire & Dam owners have the right to first pick of the litter at any time if they so choose)
***Shipping to out of state customers is an option and is an additional $450 on top of puppy cost.*** The $450 does cover the cost of the flight, a kennel, a health certificate and vet examination.
We ship puppies via American Airlines, or Delta. We have shipped many, many puppies over the years. We get them kennel trained prior to shipping and try to acclimate them as best we can. We will ship pups at 8 weeks of age. By this time the pup will have had 2 sets of parvo/distemper shots and will have had 4 wormings. I do ask that a puppy be taken to the new owner's veterinarian within 5 days of receiving their shipped puppy to ensure the requirements of the Health Guarantee are satisfied and that the puppy is in good health post flight.
I set up all shipping arrangements and offer you (the owner) a few options for shipping times. The only restraint or concern for me putting a pup on an American Airlines flight will be the temperature at either location (Drop of and Pick Up). AA will not ship a pup unless the temperature is above 35 degrees in either location. United Airlines will ship puppies at a wider range of temperatures as they have temperature controlled areas for shipping in their planes.
Some info about the flight:
You will pick up at the United Cargo or AA Cargo facility. The address, contact info, and other information about the facility is on the websites: www.unitedcargo.com or www.aacargo.com
I will either text or email the Airway Bill Number upon receipt at the airport at the time I drop the puppy off at the airport. This Airway Bill number will allow you to track the puppy and watch for delays, etc on www.aacargo.com or www.unitedcargo.com
You will not be able to pick the puppy up until about 30-45 minutes post arrival time. I always suggest that folks bring a bottle of water and scope out an area to take the puppy to potty as soon as they can pick the puppy up and let him/her out of the kennel. The kennel is zip tied shut by UA or AA so I advise to bring a knife or scissors in case they do not cut them off for you. I attach a small baggy of food to the kennel as well as the puppy's paperwork from me. The kennel will have info as to when I last offered the puppy food and I generally tell folks to offer the puppy food and water upon picking up but be sure to find a place to let the puppy out to potty.
Upon arriving home and getting a routine in place, I advise to start with half a cup of food and see how the puppy eats it. I feed Purina Pro Plan Puppy ("Focus" or Large Breed Formula are perfect).
We take a trip to Dallas/Fort Worth area when puppies are ready to go to new homes for an additional $150 delivery fee. All other deliveries are determined based on mileage and time.
Other delivery options are available. I am available to discuss delivery options and pricing at any time.
