Adoption Application

Completing this application is the first step in the process to acquiring a puppy from Catchpen N Promise Australian Cattle Dogs, but it does not guarantee you will get a puppy from this or any future litter. While it’s unlikely, the breeder reserves the right to refuse any placement at any time.

APPROVAL AND DEPOSIT: All applications will be reviewed within 2 business days of receipt. If your home is a good fit, I’ll notify you. We breed infrequently, so we will only accept deposits when puppies are expected or actually available. We require a $200 deposit. No puppies are held without deposits!

Deposits are NON-REFUNDABLE but can be transferred to another litter purchase WITHIN 12 months from time deposit was received, otherwise deposit will be forfeited.

YOUR PUPPY: Our puppies are evaluated daily for temperament, personality and conformation. We carefully and thoughtfully evaluate our puppies and their new potential person/family to help insure the best match for their forever homes…

We always retain the right to first picks of any litter in such case that we choose to hold back a puppy to stay here with us.

CONTRACT: We have a contract and will not place a puppy without a signed contract. We believe it’s the professional thing to do to memorialize our obligations to each other on paper so there are no questions later, and for that reason it’s a bit lengthy. If you have questions about specific terms, you need to contact us prior to picking up your puppy.

SPAY/NEUTER: All puppies are sold on a limited registration, Spay Neuter Contract. Full registration can be discussed.We require spay/neuter between 12 – 18 months. Show Prospects will be evaluated on a frequent basis.

REGISTRATION PAPERS: All of our puppies will be registered with AKC on a limited registration.

WHAT WE DO: Our puppies are started on a raw food diet and goats’ milk. Kibble is introduced at 6 weeks old. We use and recommend Northwest Naturals Raw Diets and Annamaet kibble.
