Deposits


 
We accept deposits of $200.00 to be placed on a waiting lists for a puppy.All deposits are for $200.00 only and nothing more as this is to not have any confusion with all who are wanting a puppy.
All deposits are good for 2 available litters back to back. You must be wanting a puppy soon to place a deposit within a month or two of our litter(s). Each and every deposit is non-returnable and goes towards the balance of the puppy(s)/dog. When a deposit is placed it tells us that you are serious in purchasing one of our Basset Hound babies. We accept US Postal Money Orders or Certified checks from your bank, for deposits and when the puppy(s) departs the remaining balance is due in cash only. No personal checks please!  If we have discussed about delivery of a puppy(s), the travel fee will need to be paid before  we leave out to your destination. All who are interested needs to fill out our "Contact Us Form" so we can know more about you and what you are looking for.

Choosing your puppy!
 
Picking your puppy out of a litter is so very exciting and finding your favorite is a wonderful experience. We have in the past let new owners choose at 1 week of age and we feel as if this was a bit too early. When having a deposit in we will allow you now to choose at 6 weeks old. NO VISITS PRIOR TO 8 WEEKS OLD! This is for the health and saftey of all puppies from folks bringing in unwanted diseases. Once you have placed a deposit in with us,we will update you and your family with litter photos weekly until 6 weeks old.  If you are wanting to see their personality, I can send you a video of them in action. All photos are sent out through Smilebox.com, as this program is awesome and you can see the photos better. When the puppies are 8 weeks old, we will allow new owners on the waiting list that has chosen their puppy to come pick their puppy up by appointments or choose in person. If you are wanting to visit before placing a deposit, we welcome you! These appointments will only be scheduled once all owners have chosen their puppy and the remaining are left looking for a great home after 8 weeks old.

Visiting

 
When visiting our home to view/pickup the puppy(s)/adult dog, we ask if you will respect our requirements. Please do not visit any other kennel or be around any unvaccinated dog/puppy within a week in visiting us here. There are too many folks that want to travel to kennel to kennel and spread unwanted canine diseases.We want serious owners and after looking at our babies you should know if you would want a Basset Hound from us. Even though all of our puppies are on a vaccine schedule,there is still that small percentage that they can still be in contact with those canine viruses. Puppies immune systems aren't fully developed to all of those diseases until 16 weeks of age. This is why we here at Long Eared Hounds and your vet encourges you to get him/her on a schedule for their vaccines once they leave the breeder. When visiting here, we ask that you wear our vinyl gloves when handling our puppies and not to place them up against your clothing/body. Now if you have a deposit in, this  dosen't apply to you, because you have already chose your baby. This is only for the remaing puppy(s) looking for a wonderfull new owner.Our main goal is here when all puppies depart is that they are in excellent health. We also don't allow any other animals on our property due to health reasons.Our adult Bassets and puppies love to see new smiling faces and we look forward to seeing you soon.

                            Shipping your puppy by airlines


  Shipping your puppy through the airlines is not a bad experience for your new addition. We get them used to their pet porter within the coming weeks of shipment. Getting himher adjusted to their porter 1 hour a day is going to make the transaction of this new environment easier on the puppy. Flying can get their tummy upset a little and you may experience diarrhea within the first 24 hours of them with you, but this will gradually go away. We normally use American or Delta Airlines when shipping a puppy. It is whether who has a flight to your closest airport and the scheduling when we can ship. We like to do early flights so we have no layovers or hopefully no delays,because of weather. Weather plays a big part in shipping as well. No puppy can be shipped under 20 degrees or over 85 degrees. Although we would love for you to come here and meet the parents and pickup your baby, but we do understand because of distance. I have a break down of what it cost to ship one of our puppies. With the gas prices going up, we hope to not have to go up as well!

Shipping is $550.00
 
 
 
 
 
Airline Ticket- $300- $375.00 depending on weight and crate.
Crate- $60.00 I buy larger so they can grow into them.
Pet bedding and water bowls- $25.00
Airline Health Certificate from our vet to fly- $35.00
 
The remainder would cover for our gas and time,
as this trip to our airport is 1 hour and a half one way.
