I was able to adopt the puppy of my dreams through your site. Support help was great but a few things didn't track right. We we not notified of time puppy would arrive at airport and had to race to get there once airport staff called. Pup was just fine but it was very stressful for us. A couple of days after we got her I got an email from ground transport folks. So maybe communication between travel folks could be improved. I would use your site again though as I got a very quality and healthy puppy. Thanks!
Get Started with Pawrade. Here's what to expect:
It's all about
Take your time to browse available puppies. Our puppy associates along with the breeder will answer any questions you may have. We firmly believe in building a relationship between you and your breeder. We track and record all communications to ensure a safe and smooth transaction. Feel free to call us, email us, text message us, you name it. We are here for you.
We require you complete the Buyer Questionnaire so our breeders and our puppy associates have a better understanding of you, your family, your living arrangements, lifestyle and location.
Pay via PetPay
Once you have settled on a puppy and pledge to raise, care and provide for him/her then click the Reserve Me button. You will be directed to our secure payment processing website, PetPay.com. You may place a deposit if the puppy is less than 7 weeks of age, otherwise payment in full is required. Make sure you select your preferred method of travel (we'll finalize with you at a later point in time). No puppy will be released for travel or pickup until payment is made in full. Need financing or payment plans? Please inquire.
Coordinate & Plan
After payment is made the breeder must review and accept or decline your adoption request. Upon acceptance we begin the adoption process. We manually review every transaction. During this stage we will be in touch with you to confirm your identity (if need be) and to finalize your plans for travel. As travel plans are made you will receive continual updates via SMS text messaging and email. Take this time to begin prepping your house for your puppy's arrival. It is important to understand we take a Puppy First Approach to ensure the health and well being with every puppy placement.
Head to Tail Veterinary Exam
Before any puppy is allowed to be released we require he or she be 8 weeks of age and meet a suitable weight threshold. Some breeders may opt to hold the puppy until 12 weeks of age for certain breeds. Every puppy must be up-to-date on all vaccinations, pass a head to tail vet exam, and be issued a health certificate before the puppy will be allowed to travel. It is important to remember, these are the breeder's babies and the breeder remains in full control.
Yay! It's time to be united with your fur baby. By this point in time, your travel arrangements have been made. Please read up on our Puppy Travel options here: Puppy Travel. At the time of delivery you will be presented with our Delivery Confirmation and Transfer of Ownership form for your review and signature along with vaccination and health records. We also require a picture of you and your fur baby at the time of delivery. We love these moments!!
