Adopting A Puppy
We require a deposit and completed application to reserve an ‘available puppy’ or to be placed on the ‘reservation list’. We prefer that you e-mail your signed application, but you can also fax it to (925)240-7710. Deposits can be paid through PayPal or by Check. Please click below for the application and deposit forms.
Health of your Puppy
Before going home with you, your puppy will have had a full physical exam and be cleared of all parasites by our veterinarians at Brentwood Vet Hospital. Your puppy will also have all age appropriate vaccinations. Our contract will require you to also have your puppy examined by your veterinarian, within 72 hours from the time of pick up, to have a full physical exam and fecal exam. This will help thoroughly establish that you have adopted a healthy puppy. Your pups initial exam will help you establish a relationship with your new veterinarian as well as get your puppy started on preventive care products such as heartworm and flea/tick preventative medications. If your puppy is proven to be anything but healthy at your first 72 hour vet exam, we will be happy to take the puppy back and offer you a full refund of the purchase price. We will make every effort to work towards a healthy and happy outcome for you and your pup. Shipping or Delivery Charges will not be refunded.
Spay and Neutering
Our contract requires you to have your puppy Spayed or Neutered between the ages of 4-6 months old. Verification of this must be mailed to us by the time your puppy is 7 months old.
We no longer ship our puppies. You can fly into SFO or OAK and bring your puppy back as a carry-on. This is much safer. We can deliver your puppy to the airport or hotel for $150. You will need to make your own flight arrangments and book your puppy as a carry-on. A $30 health certificate is required for all flights. All pups flying out of state will need to be paid in full 14 days prior to departure.
Please DO NOT let your puppy run around anywhere at the airport. Hundreds of puppies are shipped through the airlines on a regular basis. This makes it a very high risk area where your puppy can catch infectious viruses such as Parvo Virus and Kennel Cough. We are not responsible for viruses or parasites the puppy may contract during travel.
We request that you send us an e-mail as soon as you return home so we know that you and your puppy arrived safely.
