Puppies are $1950, the deposit to reserve a puppy is $250. This deposit is non-refundable unless we do not have a puppy available for you. The deposit can be paid by check made payable and mailed to Golden Rock Farm, 2807 Davis Mill Rd., Goochland, VA 23063 or credit card (4% fee). If you would like to reserve a puppy please send us an email or text letting us know you are interested in a puppy.
Once the puppies are born we will send you an email letting you know they have arrived along with some pictures of the puppies. We will also let you know what day and time you will be able to come visit the puppies so you can put this date on your calendar. We normally schedule this visit on a Saturday when the puppies are 5-6 weeks old. However, there are times when schedules require us to modify this a bit. If we have to cancel visiting day due to weather you will pick out your puppy the day they can go home. We schedule these appointments 30 minutes apart to give you plenty of time to visit and pick out your puppy. Puppies are picked out in the order we receive deposits. If you are unable to visit we can pick out a puppy for you. We do not have flexibility in the date or time of your visit due to puppies being picked out in a specific order. The 2nd deposit of $500 is due when you visit the puppies at 5-6 weeks, this can be paid by cash, check or credit card.
The puppies can not go to their new homes until they are at least 7 weeks old. We normally schedule the puppies to go home on the first Saturday they are 7 weeks old. We will schedule this day as soon as the puppies are born so you can put the date on your calendar. If you need us to watch over your puppy for a few extra days there will be a $10 a day charge. The final payment is due when you pick up your puppy and needs to be paid in CASH. For those who prefer to pay by check, you can do so at the 5-6 week visit. Sales tax is charged for VA residents.
The puppies will be checked thoroughly by our vet, have their first shots and a series of dewormings to ensure we are sending home a healthy, happy puppy. We will send you pictures and or videos of the puppies every week so you can watch them grow.
