Puppy Adoption Application

Puppy Adoption Information

At Valhalla Mountain Kennels we think it is of utmost importance that you understand completely the commitment you make to your pet when you adopt and bring home your new family member. We hope it will be the beginning of a lifelong (dog years) journey of friendship, loyalty and unconditional love. Please take the adoption of a new puppy seriously and make sure that you are up for the challenges and the joys that your new puppy will bring. We hope that you will be able to provide a loving and safe environment for your puppy and be able to meet all your puppy’s health and companionship needs.

Our adoption process is quite straight forward and can be done in either of 2 ways. 1) If the litter of pups is not born yet and you are wanting a puppy from a future litter then you must fill out a puppy application, state that the litter is pending, state parent dog preferences in you have a preference, also size, sex, color and temperament of the puppy you are looking for.  Once you have submitted your application via fax or email, then a $500 non-refundable deposit must be sent.  This will guarantee you a spot on our wait list.  Once the puppies are born and you have picked your new family member then the deposit is increased to half the cost of the puppy.  The balance isn’t due until you get your puppy of just prior to shipping if your puppy is shipped. 2) If the pups are already born then you must first decide on which puppy you would like to adopt. Then, print out the puppy application and fill it in. Fax the form (250-359-2960) or scan and email (valhallahorsenhound@gmail.com ) the application to us. We will sign the application and return it to you for your records. Once signed, a 50% deposit must be received before the puppy will be held for you. Once the deposit is received, the puppy is yours and all ads will have the puppy removed from the “for sale” section and into the “sold” section. The balance of the purchase price is due once the puppy is picked up, delivered or just prior to shipping if the puppy is being shipped. The puppy application spells out our puppy guarantee and also our expectations of new puppy owners. We of course will always be available for questions if you ever have any uncertainties or just want to talk about your puppy.  

Our CKC registered Standard Poodles are sold as pets with non- breeding rights for: Solids – $3,000, Phantoms and Parti $3,500.  Sold with full registration and breeding rights – all colors $5,000 – to approved breeders only.

Our CKC registered Bernese Mountain Dogs are sold as pets with non-breeding rights for $3,500.  Sold with full registration and breeding rights – $5,000 – to approved breeders only.

Our Bernedoodle pups are sold with non-breeding rights and are priced according to color. The Full Bernese Tricolors and the Full Bernese Sable Tricolors have the same markings as the purebred Bernese Mountain Dog (Sable has brown mixed in the black areas) and are in the most demand along with the Phantom Tricolors, Sable Phantom Tricolors, Silver Full Bernese Tricolors and Silver Phantom Tricolors, Phantoms and Sable Phantoms.  As a result these colors are priced at a higher price tier than the other colors (solids and tuxedos).  We occasionally get the rare Abstract pups that can come in a variety of colors with the main difference being the amount of white with abstract markings – large amounts of white on the head, neck and shoulders in addition to the regular Tricolor markings. The Abstract pups are the most desired pups and the most rare so are priced higher than the traditional Tricolor pups.  The Tuxedos which are absolutely gorgeous – are black and white and have 4 white paws, white tail tip, white bellies and chest and white up over their nose and forehead are also very popular and are at the 2nd tier pricing.  Last and least expensive 3rd tier pricing are the solids which are all black or black with minimal white flash on their chest, chin or paw.

 

When you submit a puppy application for an existing puppy a 50% deposit is required with the application and the balance is due when you receive your puppy.

 

If you are wanting to place a retaining deposit on a puppy from a future litter then a $500 retaining fee is required to solidify a spot for you on the wait list.  Once the litter is born and you have selected your puppy then the deposit is increased to 50% at that time.  The balance is due when you receive your puppy.
