Email fifteenacrefarms@yahoo.com or you can call and leave a message or text Laura Perry at 918-706-1931 to reserve a puppy. A $200 NON-REFUNDABLE deposit is required to hold a puppy with balance due at time of pickup. If air travel is needed, balance of puppy plus $400 shipping cost is due 1-2 weeks before scheduled shipping date.

For payment we accept cash if you pickup in person, or you can pay by personal or business check, Visa, Mastercard, Discover, & American Express. Our buyers can be assured their private personal & financial information is secure during their transaction with us when making payment via credit card and we NEVER see or have access to your card number or details. Not just anyone can get setup to be a credit card merchant. Business's are first subject to credit review & background check of all owners before a business is allowed to accept credit card payments.

We sometimes do have puppies that are priced less & sometimes have exceptional prospects that are priced higher but typically this is the pricelist we follow for puppies placed on spay/neuter contract:

Blue Merle Males & Females $1200 - $2500

Red Merle Males & Females $1200 -$2500

Red Tri Males & Females $800 - $2000

Black Tri Males & Females $800 - $1500

Sometimes we have puppies with slight imperfections that are priced on the lowest end of the scale posted here. Imperfections are things like an overbite, underbite, umbilical hernia, or the misplacement of white per breed standard posted at www.akc.org and www.asca.org; usually white that extends the shoulder blades, a white ear, or white that covers one or both eyes. Breed standard is that both eyes be surrounded by colored hair, not white, and that both ears have colored hair, not white. The white in the collar also shall not extend past the shoulder blades. These puppies will still be perfect pets but their lower price will reflect their imperfections.

***ANY ADULT DOG OR PUPPY PLACED FOR BREEDING IS $3000 regardless of color or gender. Why $3000? Why should I invest tens of thousands of dollars in health testing to remove genetic issues for others to choose a $200 mate with NO health testing & breed genetic flaws right back into MY lines. A $3000 investment shows YOUR commitment to the breed and responsibility as a breeder. I expect you to take breeding to improve the breed as serious as I do. If you think you want to breed, read the Breeding 101 page then answer all the questions on the Contract (Breeding) page in detail and email your answers to me at fifteenacrefarms@yahoo.com.***

Our prices reflect, not only the quality of puppies we produce as a result of all the genetic testing we pay for, but the cost to produce & place an entire litter of puppies as well. Raising puppies, caring for all the parents all year (not just when they are producing), & paying for all of the genetic health testing requires an enormous financial year around commitment.

Our buyers are simply asked to read both of our Contracts posted & choose the one that fits their interest ... YES you the buyer are a responsible pet owner & plan to Spay or Neuter at the earliest age possible OR you the buyer have an interest in Breeding. In this case, my Breeding 101 page will answer most of your questions and will likely change your mind.

All puppies purchased from Fifteen Acre Farms will receive AKC AND ASCA registration paperwork AT TIME OF SALE. We are ALWAYS available to take our puppies back if the owner is unable to care for him/her at any time during the dog or puppy's lifetime or if they simply do not work out in your family. However, we do not "buy" them back because of the cost to care for, advertise, & re-home them.

We also do NOT require our buyers to purchase our puppies on a co-ownership contract & we do NOT require the use of our kennel name on their registration paperwork. Our buyers are free to name their puppy(s) as they wish ... as naming the puppy is half the fun! In addition, we will never present our buyers with a lengthy questionairre before purchase asking for private personal information such as income, number of hours spent away from home each day, & who lives in or visits your home. Though we enjoy getting to know our buyers, there are some things that are just not our business.
