Before You Start
We take pride in how we raise our dogs and puppies and strive to always produce only the best quality pet for your companionship and enjoyment. Please understand that our puppies are only sold as family pets/companions, and no breeding rights are available.
Outlined below, you will find our process for purchasing one of our amazing puppies.
Please understand that we cannot reserve based on gender preference. We will note which gender you prefer, but we cannot guarantee that you will have that option until puppies are actually born. If there are not enough puppies of your preferred gender, you may transfer your reservation/consultation fee to the next litter, but you will be subject to the current prices. We do guided selections at aprox. 6 weeks of age. Final payment is due at the time of selection via Zelle for families requiring delivery. For those coming in person to pick up their pup, your final payment is due in cash when you come to pick up your puppy. Reservation/consultation fees are non-refundable barring extreme circumstances. To reserve a puppy, I must speak with you first. I like to make a connection with anyone wanting to add a Knox Family Puppy to their family.
Click on the link above to fill out an application for a puppy. Once we have received your application, we will schedule a phone interview with you. This is very important for us to be able to establish a connection with you, and for you to do the same with us.
Once we determine that we are a good match for each other, and both parties agree to move forward with the process, we will email you an invoice so that you can pay your non-refundable $500 reservation/consultation fee. No exceptions. All money paid goes toward the final price of your puppy.
Should you choose to defer your place in line until the next litter, you will be subject to the current prices. You may defer your place on the waitlist only three times before forfeiting your reservation/consultation fee and your place on any waitlist. Simply changing your mind about purchasing a puppy will result in you forfeiting your reservation/consultation fee.
**Our policies are subject to change at any time.
After we receive your non-refundable reservation/consultation fee, you will be placed on our waiting list for an upcoming litter. Clients are placed on our waitlist according to a first-come, first-served order. Because we cannot guarantee what gender each litter will produce, we do not reserve puppies based on gender.
PUPPY ASSIGNMENTS/PICKS: At the age of approximately 6 weeks, we do in-person or FACETIME ASSIGNMENTS/PICKS for puppies. Based on your preferences regarding personality traits, gender, and color, we are happy to assist you in making the best decision for you and your family. We WILL limit the number of puppies you have access to in order to help you with your decision. To have access to a full litter of puppies is non-productive, and is overwhelming to clients.
Balance is due in cash at the time of puppy pickup unless other arrangements have been made.
Puppies are to be picked up when they are 7 1/2 to 8 weeks old. If the distance is an issue, we can bring your puppy to you. All fees for puppy transport expenses are due up front in order for us to purchase our airline ticket as early as possible in order to secure the lowest price. Confirmation/flight numbers will be provided immediately upon booking. Puppy will stay with us 100% of the time in the airport and on the airplane.
If you would like to fly here, we are happy to meet you at the airport. The airports we are able to offer service through are:
EVV (Evansville Regional Airport) - no charge to meet you here.
BNA (Nashville International Airport) - $200 fee paid to us. This amount will be added to your final invoice.
FLIGHT NANNY FEES: Prices will vary for us to fly your puppy to an international airport near you in the USA, and range from $400-$750 depending on where we are flying to. Call me for an estimate. Remember, your puppy stays with me the ENTIRE time we are in the airport and on the plane.
Pet Fees vary according to the airline we fly. Southwest is who we generally fly with and their pet fee is $95. This is in addition to any additional flight nanny fees.
***PLEASE NOTE THAT EACH AIRLINE CHARGES A FEE FOR A PUPPY TICKET, AND THESE FEES VARY FROM AIRLINE TO AIRLINE. PLEASE BE SURE AND CHECK WITH YOUR AIRLINE AND FAMILIARIZE YOURSELF WITH THEIR POLICIES ON TRAVELING WITH A PET.
We believe it is in the puppy's best interest to leave on time so that they can start bonding with their new families. Puppies are to be picked up at the age of 8 weeks old. PUPPIES KEPT PAST 8.5 WEEKS OF AGE WILL INCUR A $25 PER DAY ADDITIONAL BOARDING FEE. IF PICK UP IS AFTER 12:00 PM CST, YOU WILL BE CHARGED FOR THAT DAY AS WELL. WE ARE UNABLE TO KEEP PUPPIES PAST 9 WEEKS OF AGE. IF YOU ARE NOT ABLE TO PICK UP YOUR PUPPY BY 9 WEEKS OF AGE, YOU WILL BE ASKED TO WAIT FOR THE NEXT AVAILABLE LITTER.
***ALL WHITLEY PUPPIES MUST GO HOME NO LATER THAN 8 WEEKS IF THEY ARE FLYING. WHITLEY'S PUPPIES ARE VERY LARGE AND THE CUT OFF WEIGHT FOR INCABIN FLYING FOR PUPS IS 20 POUNDS. THERE WILL BE NO EXCEPTIONS FOR PUPPIES FLYING FROM WHITLEY'S LITTERS.***
We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone at any time. This process is subject to change at our discretion.
We also reserve the right of first pick of any litter without exception.
