Frequently Asked Questions
When am I able to put down a deposit on a puppy?
After we speak on the phone, after you understand the buying process, after you read my website, after you spend a few days in the FB Group. Then Brimka Haus will accept a deposit. During this "decision process" Brimka Haus will hold your pick spot. During the "decision process" you have five to seven days before you lose your pick spot.
Are there any circumstances where Brimka Haus will refund a deposit?
Yes, if the breeding does not take or at the time of placement Brimka Haus does not have the chosen sex of your pup.
Does Brimka Haus guarantee coat color or coat length of puppy?
No, Brimka Haus does not guarantee coat colors (not enough red or too much black) or length of coat. If you put down a deposit on a female pup and all the females are long coats and you don’t want a long coat then you do not have to purchase a pup from Brimka Haus, but the deposit is non-refundable. The deposit is however, transferable to another litter. At this time, you would “get in line” with the other previous depositors. If you transfer your deposit due to no pups of your chosen sex you would “get ahead” of those depositors that paid a deposit after you.
What is a Puppy Party?
The Puppy Party happens when the pups are 6 weeks old. It is when buyers come and meet the puppies and sometimes the parents. It is a time when the puppies get to meet a bunch of people and we do exercises with the puppies. We generally have food and socialize. It is a bona fide meet and greet.
Am I able to transfer my deposit to another litter?
Yes, you are able to do this at any point during the buying process. If you transfer to another litter due to no puppies of your chosen sex you would be placed ahead of others that had placed a deposit. If you are transferring your deposit to another litter for any other reason then you would be put at the end of the current pick order.
What types of payments does Brimka Haus accept for the $400 deposit?
Brimka Haus accepts PayPal, cash and personal checks for DEPOSITS; although, Brimka Haus will only hold a pup for three business days while waiting for a personal check to arrive via the US Postal system.
What types of payments does Brimka Haus accept for the final payment?
At the time of pick-up, Brimka Haus accepts cash only (this is not a money order or a cashier’s check, it is cash the green stuff). PayPal is acceptable two weeks prior to pick-up, but there is an extra fee for using PayPal for final payment, but not for the deposit. If paying with a personal check, it needs to arrive at Brimka Haus two weeks prior to picking up your puppy. Brimka Haus is not responsible for the US Postal System losing a check or it not arriving two weeks before pick up. You can also leave a personal check at the puppy Party.
If I put down a deposit am I guaranteed a puppy?
No, putting down a deposit on a pup is not a guarantee that you will receive a puppy. Brimka Haus tries to screen applicants very well. Brimka Haus likes to make sure that their pup will be a good fit for the buyer. Therefore, it is possible, although rare, that your deposit may be returned to you. This may happen with no suitable explanation.
Am I guaranteed my Pick Order of Puppy?
Brimka Haus does allow first pick, second pick excreta of puppies depending on order of deposits, however it is a guided “pick” and Brimka Haus does have final say.
Please keep in mind, sometimes, although rare, Brimka Haus does believe that a particular puppy would be better suited with a particular person or family. In this rare instance, you might not “get” your pick puppy, as one puppy may not be available for you to choose from. Also in rare circumstances, Brimka Haus may decide to keep a puppy for their breeding program and in this case there may not be an available puppy for you. Your deposit would be refunded, as your chosen sex would not be available.
At what age do I pick my puppy?
Once you have made a deposit on a pup, you should make every effort to choose your pup by eight weeks of age. Brimka Haus does not recommend or allow puppy picks much before eight weeks of age.
At what age do puppies go to their new/forever home?
The pup is ready to go home at ten weeks of age and after his/her health check performed by Brimka Haus' veterinarian. Your puppy will have a vet check when he is between nine and 10 weeks old. Depending on the veterinarian’s schedule and where weekends and or holidays fall, will determine the exact date of your puppy’s vet check. After the vet exam, your puppy will most likely be able to leave that day for its new home. Your puppy must be 100% healthy to go home the same day as the vet check. If the vet determines that the pup is not 100% healthy, the pup will remain with Brimka Haus until said aliment has passed.
When can I come and visit the puppies?
After you have made a deposit on a puppy and the puppy is at least four weeks old, you may call or email to set up a time to come visit the parents or pups. Sometimes due to certain circumstances this request to visit puppies is denied. Sometimes depending on circumstances, I show only pups that are available and only your chosen sex (male or female). If you do not have a deposit on a pup, then you may visit the available pups when there are other scheduled buyers coming to visit puppies.
Does Brimka Haus allow prospective puppy buyers to visit the parents?
No, Brimka Haus does not allow people to visit the parents, unless they piggyback with someone who has made a $400 deposit. If schedules mesh, Brimka Haus will coordinate this.
Does Brimka Haus allow people to show up at the puppy's home and leave with a puppy on the same day?
No, Brimka Haus does require one visit to the puppy's home, at least one week prior to you taking your puppy home.
Does Brimka Haus allow AKC full-registration?
Yes, when the dog is two years old and has passed the OFA certification for hips and elbows. Buyer would be responsible for the fee to revoke the limited registration, currently that fee is $25.
Does Brimka Haus guarantee a puppy for breeding or show?
No, Brimka Haus does not guarantee puppies for breeding or showing. While some puppies might appear to have show quality Brimka Haus does guarantee for this. Brimka Haus prides themselves on providing you with a 10 week old puppy that is well socialized, has a great temperament and is in excellent health.
Does Brimka Haus require a spay/neuter contract?
No, Brimka Haus does not require a spay/neuter contract. Current research suggests that spaying and neutering is not in the best interest of your puppy/dog. Spaying your German Shepherd Dog before 24 months of age is associated with a higher risk of joint damage, adverse reaction to vaccines, autoimmune disease, incontinence., and certain types of cancers. If you wish to sterilize your puppy/dog, I would recommend a vasectomy for males and an ovary sparing spay for females. These procedures can be performed on young dogs.
