5. How do I pick up my puppy?

A lot of our puppy families do not live close enough to pick up there puppy so we have several options for you.

a. Pick up in Headland, AL-Your are welcome to come to our home to pick up your puppy

b. Puppy fly in the cabin with us-If you prefer for your puppy to fly in the cabin but you are unable to make the trip here is an option for you. Someone will fly with your puppy to the airport of your choice. You will pick up your puppy at the airport. You will be responsible for the round trip ticket and the puppies ticket. There is also a $499.00 transport fee.

c. Puppy fly in the cabin with you- You are welcome to fly with the puppy in the cabin with you. You will be responsible for the pet carrier and the puppies ticket.

6. What Food Is The Puppy Eating?

We are feeding our puppies Purina Pro Plan Puppy Shredded Chicken. We have noticed on a few breeders websites that they recommend a puppy food that you can click a link and enter a code for a discount. They do this because every bag of dog food you buy they get a % of the sale. How do I know? Because we have been breeding since 2004 and tried this option in the past. I am not convinced these foods are the best options for our dogs. You are welcome to slowly switch your puppies food from the Purina Pro Plan but do this slowly so they do not get an upset tummy. 

7. Do White Sand Golden Puppies Come With A Warranty?

Yes, our puppies come with a two year health guarantee and a puppy contract. I our puppies also go home with one puppy shot which is the only shot needed by 8 weeks of age, microchip, 30 days free pet insurance, a stuffed toy with the mothers and siblings scent on it and a lifetime of support.

8. Where Are Our Puppies Raised?

Please visit our Where are our puppies raised page

9. Do we do any health testing on our dogs? 

Yes, you will find FCI, BVA and OFA health testing on our dogs. BVA is the British Veterinarian Association and our preferred method for health screening. Why do you ask? Because the panel doesn't change every few month unlike OFA that changes the individuals who evaluate the x-rays. Also, BVA requires two x-rays of the elbows unlike OFA that only requires one. BVA also grades each hip individually instead of one grade for both hips. We use Walden Pond, Hamby Road in Atlanta and Abbiecreek for our health schemes. Our eye exams are done in Pensacola and heart with Walden Pond. We also genetic test all of our dogs to produce clear puppies. Here is an example of a Paw Print Genetic test. 






 

10. What is AKC Limited Registration?

Limited Registration means that the dog is registered but no litters produced by that dog are eligible for registration. 

No offspring of a dog for which has been granted is eligible for registration. Each registration certificate for such dog shall carry notice of the limitation, and the limitation shall continue, regardless of any change of ownership, unless and until the owner(s) of the litter at birth shall apply to AKC for removal of the limitation.”
