Our Adoption Process

Adopting a puppy is a big deal. It's big for you, and big for us.  We take our small, caring, and loving breeding program very seriously, and we take the time to really get to know those who will be adopting a puppy from Little Deer Creek Farm.  Filling out the on-line application for a puppy is just a small start for us to get to know you. We want to make this the best and happiest experience for you and your puppy!

How Do I Reserve a Little Deer Creek Farm Puppy?

 

  • First, check out our AKC Great Pyrenees Puppies page to find out the availability of our puppies.

  • Next, we would love for you to Contact us.  Let us get to know you and answer any questions you may have.

  • Then, you will need to fill out our Customer Questionnaire.  We will  follow up by sending you a current Puppy Deposit form.

  • Finally, you can send a puppy deposit of $500 (non-refundable unless we cannot provide you with the puppy) directly via Zelle (use our email address patrishacaplan@yahoo.com) or mail a check or money order.

Reserving Your Puppy

 

If you are interested in adopting a puppy, please begin by filling out the Customer Questionnaire. Soon after we receive your questionnaire, we will contact you to help you with any questions you may have and we will ask you additional questions as well. Then, we will discuss litter options and availability, and of course, we will be here for any questions along the way! 

The application process does not require a deposit fee until Little Deer Creek Farm has given written or verbal authorization to proceed to the next step, which is securing your place on our reservation list. 

Once you have read, and acknowledged our health agreement/breeder/buyer agreement and your deposit has been received, your place will be secured on our reservation list.  

Puppies are all sold on limited AKC registration (non-breeding home, unless prior arrangements have been made). Our puppies are intended for pet or working homes. On occasion, we will sell our puppies on full AKC registration to approved breeders. Please contact us ahead of time if you are interested in breeding rights. There will be an additional charge for full breeding rights if approved. 

Health Guarantee

Veterinary care is professionally provided by Kittanning Veterinary Hospital, a licensed vet will do a complete physical exam around the age of 7 weeks before your puppy is cleared to go home with you, checking how the dog walks and stands and if he is bright and alert.  They will perform a weight check, measure body temperature, pulse rates, and respiratory rates.  They will examine eyes, ears, nose feet, skin, coat, and genitalia, and will listen closely to the heart and lungs.  They will also palpitate the lymph nodes, joints, and organs within the abdomen.  A dental exam is also performed to examine the teeth, gums, and other structures.  At this final examination, puppies also receive their age appropriate vaccinations. Our puppies are on a deworming schedule of 2,4,6 and 8 weeks, a fecal sample will be viewed during this visit also.

 

This information is transcribed onto a form signed by the performing vet and included in your puppies go home folder. Also note all Little Deer Creek Farm Great Pyrenees puppies will be microchipped with an AKC reunite chip, this number will be recorded on the vet form and located in your go home folder.

Little Deer Creek Farm provides a two year health guarantee for your new puppy.   We ask that you schedule your own veterinarian appointment within three business days of purchasing your puppy.  This is outlined in the Health Agreement/Breeder/Buyer Agreement.  Buyer is responsible for continuing vet care including future vaccinations and dewormings. Puppies will go home the first weekend past 8 weeks of age.
