Completing this application is a step in the process to acquiring a puppy from Winters Wind Standard Poodles, but it does not guarantee I'll get a puppy from this or any future litter. While it's unlikely, the breeder reserves the right to refuse any placement at any time.
Puppies will be picked by their new families in order of application with deposit received. Breeder has puppies evaluated at eight weeks of age. Puppies will go to their new homes at Ten weeks. We can hold puppies for a short time; we do charge a day rate for boarding and grooming in this case.
We have a contract and will not place a puppy without a signed contract. We believe it's the professional thing to do to memorialize our obligations to each other on paper so there are no questions later, and for that reason it's a bit lengthy. If you have questions about specific terms, you need to contact us prior to picking up your puppy.
We require spay/neuter not before 18 months.; unless we agree in writing for a change of age. This might seem hypocritical at first glance, but we have a take-back provision in our contract. Any puppy from our home always has a home here, and will never be at a shelter.
