Have you found your Fur-Baby?
Below is information on how the process of adoption begins!
Do you allow visits?
Due to COVID and our continually growing family, our visitations have been restricted. We want to keep both our customers and ourselves safe during these uncertain times. All visits are by appointment only and are not to exceed 15 minutes. We do require that you have submitted a puppy application before scheduling a visit. Puppies also have to be at LEAST 4 weeks of age. We do not allow visits with multiple litters, therefore you must choose 2-3 puppies to visit with. We are happy to Facetime with you as well!
1.) How do I know what puppies are upcoming and how do I get on a waitlist?
We unfortunately do not do any "waitlists" here at Yarnelle Fur-Babies. The best way to find out more information regarding our upcoming litters is to personally contact us at (260)443-9035, or follow our website under the "upcoming litters" page. We will only accept deposits once we have a confirmed pregnancy.
2.) How do I know what puppies are available?
We try to update our website as often as possible, but the best way to verify availability of our puppies is to contact us personally. We do ask that you add in the "note" section if you would like to reserve a male or female.
3.) How do I place a deposit on a litter?
After we have confirmed availability, you then have the option to place a NONREFUNDABLE BUT TRANSFERABLE deposit to reserve your puppy until 8 weeks of age (when your puppy can come home!) We accept Cashapp or Zelle for the deposit only. The remaining balance of your puppy will be due in CASH only. If you have chosen to place a deposit on a litter of puppies, and not a specific puppy, then you will be placed on our deposit list and will pick your puppy in order of deposits received. We try to be as fair as possible, but we have to abide by our policy. If we receive a deposit just seconds before yours, unfortunately, that family will choose before you. When you place your deposit, you MUST tell us what gender you would like to reserve. This allows other families clarity on what gender is available by their pick. If by the time it is your turn to pick and you have changed your gender, you will be put at the end of the list for that gender. If there are no puppies remaining of that gender, your deposit will then be transferable to another litter in the future. We allow a ONE TIME transfer only.
4.) I have placed a deposit, what is next?
If you have placed a deposit on a SOLID COLORED litter, and are waiting to pick your puppy, know that we will take individual pictures of the puppies at roughly 3-4 weeks of age. We will then begin to introduce these pictures to families in order of deposits received. If you have placed a deposit on a MULTICOLORED/PATTERNED litter, we will start puppy picks as soon as possible (typically 1-2 weeks - at our discretion). If you are out of state and are unable to travel to meet the puppies in person, we will gladly FaceTime you with 2-3 available puppies you have chosen from individual pictures. We unfortunately do NOT allow any visits with puppies until they are 4 weeks of age (upon our discretion). We will do our best to provide the date for puppy picks a week in advance. Puppy picks will be scheduled from 10am-4pm Eastern Time. If you are unable to come in person during that day/time we are happy to FaceTime with you instead. Puppy visits are scheduled 30 minutes apart, so we do ask that your visit does not exceed 15 minutes to be fair to everyone. We do ask that you choose 2-3 puppies out of the litter to meet before visiting. We freshly groom them for your visit! After you have chosen your puppy, we will do our best to send a 6 week picture update (not guaranteed). All puppies will visit the vet at 7 weeks, and puppy take home is at 8 weeks!
We know this is an exciting time for you and your family, but we are unable to send updated pictures and videos upon request. We are incredibly busy and are truly focused on taking care of the puppies and their momma's during their stay with us!
5.) What does it mean to transfer my deposit?
We give everyone the option to transfer their deposit ONE TIME. When you decide to transfer your deposit another $100 will be required at that time to ensure you are ready. Your previous deposit and this current deposit will then go towards the total purchase. There is not a time limit on how quickly you are to transfer, and rest assured, your deposit will never expire. We do ask that you are aware that depending on the breed, color, coat type, size, generation, etc, puppies are not promised to have the same price as your intended first purchase.
6.) How do you accept deposits?
We accept Zelle, CashApp, or Cash for our DEPOSITS ONLY. We do allow personal checks in the mail for puppies that will be staying with us an additional 4 weeks from the time the deposit is mailed. Unfortunately, we do NOT accept paypal, venmo, or any other form of payment. Contact Brooke (260)443-9035 for our information to place a deposit. The remaining balance will be due in CASH ONLY at pickup. WE WILL NOT ACCEPT ANY OTHER FORM OF PAYMENT AT PICKUP!! If your puppy is being transported to you, we do require that the puppy is paid in full 2-3 business days prior to their departure. This payment can be made via Cashapp or Zelle ONLY. Please contact Brooke (260)443-9035 for further information and questions.
7.) What about the application?
We do require the puppy application to be filled out prior to any in person visit, especially if we have NOT received a nonrefundable but transferable deposit from you. This is for the safety of both ourselves and our puppies/dogs. If at anytime we do not feel a visit is safe, we have the right to require a deposit and/or require meeting off of our facility. Please email your filled out application to email@example.com prior to visiting/picking up your puppy (whatever comes first). This just provides further information on your family and who our fur-baby will be joining!
8.) Do you require a spay/neuter contract?
We do NOT require a spay/neuter contract and breeding rights are not restricted with any of our DOODLE puppies. There is not an additional fee that we ask of you for breeding rights. We do ask that you are upfront and honest to let us know that you are purchasing for a breeding prospect so that we can assist you in choosing the best fit for your breeding program. We do also ask that you have completed the necessary research and breed responsibly. All of our sires and dams are genetic health tested, and majority of our sires are color tested as well. We can provide these documents upon request. AKC registered labrador retrievers, and standard poodles may require an additional cost for FULL AKC registration upon our discretion.
Thank you for taking the time to read through our adoption process. If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to Brooke (260)443-9035 or John (260)410-7925.
