If you would like full registration (only to small/in-home qualified/experienced breeders) the cost is $300 plus the cost of the pug puppy. This must be approved through Barbara J. Briggs via phone and photos of where you are raising your litters.
5. Waiting List:
I have many requests for pug puppys thourghout the year. I usually have more clients on my waiting lists then pups available. If you would like a pug pup from House of Briggs Pugs please fill out the, Puppy Adoption Form, Your name will be put on my waiting list. If there is not a puppy that you are interested in when it is your turn to pick you have the option to pass and wait for the next available litter. If there are no puppies available when it is your turn to pick your name will stay on the list until there is a puppy for you. If you would like to be removed from the list for whatever reason please let me know and I will remove your name from the list.
6. PICKING OUT YOUR PUPPY TIME:
We normally start picking at around 4 weeks of age. We will contact each family in the order of when I receive the deposit payment, until all puppies are spoken for. You are welcome to come to our home to pick out your puppy or you can pick through pictures. Once contact you to pick, must pick with 24 hours, or give me a choice of one of two pups. All of my pups are beautiful and have wonderful personnalities.
7. Do I have any puppies now?:
I do work off a waiting list and rarely ever have puppies posted available on our site. However, on the rare occassion that we do have a puppy listed as available do require a deposit of $500 to hold/reserve the puppy. No puppy will be held or reserved without a deposit!
All deposits go towards the total purchase price of your puppy. All deposits are non-refundable for whatever reason! Please be sure that you want one of our puppies before placing a deposit.
8. Do I Ship?
There are puppy nannies that can transport you puppy to you. The airlina will no longer ship pug pups by them selves, the airlines have changed their rules on snub nosed pets.
Unattended shipping is no longer available with any airline for brachycephalic breeds. We will continue to offer delivery to the airport in Allentown, PA for clients to receive their puppy and transport them home in person. We are available to meet inside the airport terminal and can accommodate most scheduling requests.
If you live close enough I can for a fee of $1 per mile one way, deliver or meet you halfway.
