There are sooo many variants that influence the price of a puppy. The biggest one for us is that we want our puppies in a loving FOREVER home. Price equals value...and our puppies lives are of the greatest value from the day they are born. They are not expendable. They are not accessories to be bought and sold with careless disregard. They are individuals. They are important. They matter regardless of color, gender, size, or confirmations. From the day they are born, they matter.
Our #1 reason for our prices is to keep our puppies in the greatest committed loving pet homes for LIFE. Homes that have committed themselves to what it takes to own and care for a forever companion. We don't want anyone to buy one of our babies on a whim, or without doing their homework on what it takes to be a responsible owner. Poms can live up to 18 years or so, and they will depend on you for all that time to care for them, provide for them, and never give up on them, because they will never give up on you! ((*A note: If you were to buy a baby and at any time in its life find yourself unable to care or keep him/her, we will ALWAYS take our babies back.))
Our prices reflect our care, our time, cost to feed, house, vet, and raise our puppies. Our babies are held from day one, they are played with every day, we have them vet checked, vaccinated, wormed, all that before leaving to help ensure a happy healthy start. All of this is our duty and our pleasure, to care for our babies. We get very attached to each one, and we can tell you all about each one's personalities! Because they are so rich in personalities, regardless of color, type, or confirmation...It is their individuality that we treasure! We care deeply for them and we want the very best for them and their future. We want you to be happy with your babies too! We want our babies to always be a perfect match with you!
A puppy with the most desirable, or frequently requested, traits is going to have a higher value. Lowest prices for example might be for larger orange males (most common color, bigger in size, and male gender) that is not sold by the time it is 16 weeks. At that time that dogs price may be lowered. Most expensive prices would be for small white females with the most requested traits such as small muzzle, small ears, and a short cobby body (that is not a common color and the color, gender, and size #1 most requested). Those may go for higher than normal prices at $4000-5000.
Many pet stores charge this price or more for puppies, yet they sell SICK puppies from unethical breeders and puppy mills.They offer NO warranty, and your puppy may not survive to adulthood due to unsafe breeding practices at puppy mills and sick puppies being produced by sick, neglected parents. We do NOT approve of those practices. The prices that we charge ensure a healthy, happy puppy that has been raised inside our home with love, attention, and more than a little doting. Our puppies come from healthy, happy parents who are a part of our family and are treated as such. Our prices also include a warranty as well as a life long opportunity to contact us with any question or concern.
We strive to go that extra mile so that we may produce happy, healthy puppies. But to have a healthy puppy, we must start with healthy parents. Our price reflects the cost of healthy, quality parents: cost of Vet Checks to be sure that the parent is healthy, housing for adults, vaccines/worming, parasite prevention, vet fees, grooming, food, water, toys, treats, bedding, puppy pads, vitamins, quality time with people and training ect. It is not cheap to raise a healthy litter. Healthy parents create a great start for our puppies and it helps to ensure your puppy will live out its many years (as many as 18 or so!) with you!
WE encourage everyone to meet the parents, visit our home, and see the conditions the puppies are raised in. ALL my puppies get vet checked BEFORE they leave my home, they are kept current on worming and vaccines and will be here until I feel they are ready to leave their mother (small ones may be here as long as 16 weeks or more if needed). During that time they get used to all the household noises, get used to living in a home with a family, and will be kept current on vaccines/worming ect. All my puppies come with a 1 year guarantee.
