Deposits are refundable within seven days of deposit date only. After seven days, deposits are non-refundable. No exceptions. Please consider non-refundable policy if your search for a new puppy is urgent or time-sensitive. Twin Oaks Farm LLC may not be able to provide a puppy from the first litter on which you place a deposit, if the litter does not produce enough puppies or the desired sex, to fill Buyer’s order [for example, if Buyer has 3rd selection female, and litter produces only two female puppies]. Should a litter not produce enough puppies to fill Buyer’s order, Buyer can opt to receive a refund, select another puppy from the litter, if available, or roll their deposit over to future litters of other dogs, for up to two years from deposit date.
If Buyer for personal reasons cannot remain on the original litter list and needs to move to a later litter, Buyer has the right to roll the deposit over to future litters of other dogs, for up to two years from deposit date. This can be done within the first 6 weeks from when the litter was born. After 6 weeks of age, a re-homing fee of $150 will be applied.
Buyer agrees to pay remaining balance due when puppy is picked up. If payment is not received, Twin Oaks Farm LLC reserves the right to re-home your puppy to another buyer. We will move your deposit, and any other fees paid, to a future litter, less $150 re-homing fee.
Buyer agrees to respond to Puppy Selection within one week of notification to do so. This is usually done at 4 weeks of age. If we do not hear from you within one week after notification, you will move down on the selection order or Twin Oaks Farm LLC reserves the right to re-home your puppy to another buyer. We will move your deposit, and any other fees paid, to a future litter, less $150 re-homing fee.
Buyer understands that Twin Oaks Farm LLC reserves the right of 1st Selection Male and / or 1st Selection Female from any and all litters, for breeding purposes. Decisions on keeping a male or female from any litter are made when the litters are born. Buyer understands there is the possibility of Buyer moving down one spot on the Selection Order should Breeder decide to keep a puppy for breeding purposes.
