We should have a litter due about December 18th, From Kimber and Oakley 
Longhair and Smooth puppies in various colors and patterns are expected! 
Wish List will open on December 24thAFTER puppies are born.
I will know colors and genders when born, but won't know coats until about 2-3 weeks old.
Be sure to LIKE our Facebook page, or watch this site for updates!   

If you are interested in a puppy PLEASE READ " Instructions" and " Information" at the BOTTOM of the page. Common questions will be answered there.
I might not respond to emails/texts that ask the questions that are answered there,
or that do not follow the "Instructions" when for applying for a puppy.

Black Longhair Male Puppies are $600 
MOST  other Pet Puppies are $650 male / $700 female.
Occassionally some puppies may be priced differently.
Prices are Not Negotiable.
"Pet" Puppies Do NOT  automatically come with AKC PAPERS**
AKC sent me a report  showing that only 1/3 of pet owners actually sent in the applications that I ordered!**Therefore, if you want AKC "Limited Registration," you need to let me know when you RESERVE your puppy, so I can order the registration from AKC. I do not charge extra for pet papers for a puppy coming from a litter I am registering, but AKC will charge YOU $30 to process.
I only register the litters that include puppies sold with FULL AKC,
so not every litter will be registered!
**The PET PRICE is a REDUCED PRICE in order to help you
with the cost of the recommended spaying or neutering.**   
**Full AKC (Breeder) Registration is  $800 Male/$850 Female**
 Not all puppies will be eligible for FULL AKC. All of our puppies will be great pets, but not all will be breeder quality.

We want to ensure that only desirable characteristics
are passed on to future puppies. Approved Breeders, including Benderdachs, get priority choice when picking puppies.
  A  Non-Refundable Holding Deposit of $200 will reserve
your puppy until it is ready to go to your home. The Holding Deposit is deducted from the price of the puppy when you pick it up.

Once you place a deposit on your puppy, updated pictures
will be sent to you every 1 or 2 weeks.

Deliveries to Billings, Hardin or Custer MT are FREE.
Due to gas prices and the time it takes, we charge $50 to deliver to
THESE cities IF our schedule & weather allow us to travel:
Livingston~  Miles City~  Cody, WY~
Harlowton(For people near Great Falls)~ Sheridan, WY~

All Puppies will have been vet checked and had their first vaccination & worming treatments. They will come with a gift bag that includes a container of food, a blanket, bowls and toys. Puppies come with a 12 month Replacement Warranty for Fatal/Terminal Hereditary and Congenital Defects.
Please read if you are considering a puppy from us!
Size "estimate" is based on size of the parents, it is not a Guarantee!
Our puppies usually grow to be 10-14 pounds as adults.  

PLEASE: Make sure your SPOUSE and LANDLORD are okay with getting a puppy BEFORE you inquire. AFTER the Wish List opens, you can get on it by sending an email to [email protected] , and telling me about yourself and your household (family members and other pets, usual activities  etc) and what color/sex you are looking for.  THIS IS IMPORTANT!
I do not have a formal questionnaire, but I do need to know that your home will be a good fit for one of our puppies!  The email is your introduction to me, and I use it to help me choose the ORDER of Pick. I will post on this site and on the Facebook page the exact date that the Wish List will open.
Mixed Coat litters will take approximately 3 weekd to determine coat length.
I  Do Not/Will Not keep your contact info before the Wish List opens! 
I work full time,  Email or Text is the best way to reach me!

When it's time to Pick puppies, I contact people on the Wish List (in the order I choose) and send pictures of available pups. Once you select your puppy, I will email the contract. You then have ONLY 2 BUSINESS DAYS to mail the deposit , or the puppy could be offered to the next person!   
*** Although we DO invite you to PICK-UP your puppy at our home if you would like,  you will SELECT your puppy from photos. We do not allow people to come over "Just to look" or to "Visit" the puppies  By the time your puppy is ready to go, we will have built up a friendship with you, and will Welcome you to our home to PICK UP the Puppy.
The Non-Refundable* Holding Deposit to reserve a puppy is $200.
It is deducted from the price of the puppy. The balance is due at puppy transfer, which will be when it is 8-9 weeks old. *The Deposit is Refundable only IF something were to happen to the pup while still in my care*
Deposits may be paid by Post Office Money Order(Preferred) or Wal-Mart Money Order only.  CASH ONLY at pick-up/delivery please.
Sorry! NO Personal Checks are accepted under any circumstance. 

Please understand that we are small breeders. We could find great homes for  twice as many puppies as we produce, but we prefer to stay small. Please do not feel bad if you do not get offered a pup the first time you apply. You may apply again, if you're still looking for the perfct puppy.  We don't keep/carry over contact infomation to other litters. You must apply again each litter.
