The nonrefundable deposit is deducted from the total price of the puppy or dog. Deposits may be personal checks or United States Postal Service Money Order. For final payments on Puppy Pick-up Day we only accept cash or United States Postal Service Money Order made out to RedTeddy, LLC.
We invite new families to visit when their pup litters are 4-5 weeks of age. However, RedTeddy reserves the right to chose a particular puppy for each family.
RedTeddy reserves the right to decline to sell a puppy if we believe it is not in the puppies' best interests, such as if we discover inconsistencies in the pup's future stated home life from what the buyer family initially described, and the new home life is sub standard (in our opinion). In the highly unlikely event this happens and we decline to sell a puppy to a buyer after a deposit has been taken, then RedTeddy will refund the deposit in full within a reasonable amount of time.
Please be sure that your situation will be stable and the timing right for your puppy before moving forward with the deposit. We will look at your information before we approve your family. Our approval is based on many criteria but especially for long-term stability. Deposits are never returned due to a change of mind, or change of income or living circumstances, or any reason initiated by the buyer. The deposit will hold the sale price stated at the time the deposit was received, for up to three years. After the third year, the family still does not lose their money, but the final purchase price increases to the current price. Families whose situation changes unexpectedly should stay in touch so that we can place them for a future litter. If this is the case, and in this case only, a family's deposit is transferable to another family or person of their choosing (requires a new, approved, application). RedTeddy will require a statement signed by both parties for this alteration to be in affect, and retains the right to decline the request outright for any reason.
All sales are final, no returns or exchanges of puppies other thanstipulated by the NYS law. Should the buyer return a puppy covered by NYS Ag law, buyer must return unregistered AKC forms. Should buyer have already filed for AKC registration in their name, RedTeddy may delay return of purchase price until AKC registration is officially returned to "RedTeddy" by the buyer (fees may apply).
REDTEDDY WILL ACCEPT ANY RETURNS OF ANY OF OUR PUPPIES. However, RedTeddy will only refund the purchase price of the puppy/dog in the situations noted above, as required by NYS law regarding unfit puppies. No exceptions. REDTEDDY IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY FEES, BILLS, INVOICES, etc., veterinary or other, that occur after the puppy is purchased.
Over the years we have found that it is best to send in a deposit early rather than wait, even if you already know your living situation will be changing. We have had families who specifically ask for a puppy to come home a year or two in the future and that is fine. We encourage questions and visits so that potential approved families feel safe working with us and getting a RedTeddy puppy from us. Once we have established a friendly, trustworthy relationship and know yours will be a loving home, we will work with you day and night to assure that you get the best possible puppy as soon as possible. "Loving homes" will vary in the details, but what they all have in common is lots of love, attention, and respect for their pets from puppy-hood through adulthood with plenty of playtime for all!
