DOGS & PUPPIES
MEET THE PARENTS
We are so excited to have CH Shadalane's Walking Dead with Tesoro as our stud for Liberty's 2020 summer litter! "Daryl" is an AKC Champion golden retriever, absolutely stunning in appearance and a true gentleman in personality. He has all of his OFA clearances, and has been found clear of all 5 genetic risks for goldens. Thanks to our good friend Alan Gunther at Shadalane Golden Retrievers for this sweet, handsome guy!
Liberty's Belle of the Ball BN RN CGC TKN completed her Rally Novice title at just 7 months of age, her Canine Good Citizen at 8 months of age and her Trick Dog Novice title a month later. Belle loves to please, retrieve and swim. You can read more about our Belle on her page, here.
Liberty's Golden Belle Pepper is our sweet girl puppy from the Liberty x Ruckus 2019 litter. Pepper will be competing in AKC events soon, and you can read more about her on her page, here.
Introducing... Summits Liberty Lumberjack at Shadalane! Our newest addition, we are so excited to be co-owning Jack with Alan Gunther and Beth Johnson. Read more about this incredible puppy and where he's headed on his page, here.
PUPPIES COMING 2020!
Please understand that our 2020 and 2021 planned litters are completely spoken for.
If you would like information on our 2022 litters, please see information below. Most families added to our waiting list wait an average of 9-12 months for their puppy.
If you would like to be considered for our waiting list, please complete the Puppy Questionnaire found on our Contact page, and return to us. If you are selected to receive one of our puppies, a $100 non-refundable deposit is required to hold your position on our list.
While we cannot guarantee when your puppy selection will take place, your approved application and deposit reserves your opportunity to select your puppy based on your list position. (For example, if 9th on our 2020 list and we only had 8 puppies in the spring litter, you would be bumped to the following litter.)
Be sure to follow along on the puppy blog for updates and photos of the puppies as they grow AND keep up with our plans for future litters.
A $500 deposit is required to hold a puppy ($100 non-refundable to be added to wait list, $400 due when pups are born. The $400 is refundable until puppies are 3 weeks old, non-refundable after that point). As a general rule, puppies will be selected in the order in which deposits are received.
Our exceptions to this rule are simple. First, we always reserve right of first puppy for our family. This does not mean we will always keep first puppy, but that we do keep that as an option. Additionally, if show puppies are available, these puppies will be placed prior to pet puppy homes selection.
Pet puppy selection generally takes place between 6-7 weeks of age. Our puppies are ready for their forever homes at 8 weeks of age.
Our puppies are great with children and socialize with all ages on a regular basis!
CONTRACT & COST
The pre-tax cost of one of our pet puppies is $3,000 (includes your $500 deposit). The City of Las Vegas revised its hobby breeder laws in 2019, and we are now required to charge 8.38% sales tax of $251.40. With tax and deposit, the total cost of a puppy is $3,251.40.
Your puppy comes with a 2 year health guarantee (read here), first set of shots, vet check and health letter, and will be dewormed, microchipped, have copies of both parents pedigrees and clearances, and limited AKC registration.
Additionally, your puppy will be sent home with a copy of our health guarantee/seller contract, vet record, blanket with litter/mom scent, collar, binder full of information on puppy raising, and starter food packet.
If desired, we can personally deliver your puppy to you anywhere that Southwest Airlines flies (for the cost of our ticket plus their $95 pet fare). We have found Southwest to be the most accommodating to bringing puppies into the cabin, and will not ship our dogs in baggage due to the potential trauma and health risks involved.
While we offer full registration on a very select basis to show homes, please note that our puppies are sold as pets on a spay/neuter contract with "limited registration" from the AKC.
This means your puppy can be registered with the AKC and would be able to compete in most AKC events including Obedience, Agility, Rally, and Hunting trials. However, your puppy is not to be used for breeding and any litters they produced in violation of our contract would not be AKC registerable.
Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions!
Remember, our waiting list fills quickly. Many of our families wait 9-12 months for their furever friend. If you need a puppy *now,* we are probably not a right fit for you. We do not offer older puppies or any of our dogs displayed on this page, as they are first and foremost our pets and members of our family. If you are looking for an older or trained golden, we recommend Shadalane Golden Retrievers in Vista, California. Lastly, please understand that we are not a rescue. If you are interested in adopting a golden, please visit the Golden Retriever Rescue of Southern Nevada.
