Here at August Willow Aussies the health and well being of our dogs and puppies is first and foremost. All of our procedures and vaccinations are done by a licensed veterinarian. Buyer has 72 hours to have the puppy seen by a vet if there are any concerns upon puppy's arrival.
ALL ARE REGISTERED AS AUSTRALIAN SHEPHERDS
All puppies are given a wellness exam prior to leaving for their new homes. To the best of mine and my veterinarian's knowledge all puppies are in healthy and sound condition upon leaving my care.
Deposits are non-refundable but are transferable. A deposit of $750 is required to place a puppy on hold. Balance is due when the puppy is 7 weeks old (unless discussed further) at the time the balance is paid you will need to provide me with the registered name you have chosen for your puppy. The registered name will start with August Willow.
If you are buying a breeding prospect please know that an 8 week old puppy can not be evaluated as 100% show/breeding quality. A lot can happen from 8 weeks to 2 years of age. For this reason all puppies are sold as pet quality, this does not mean that they are not show/breeding quality. It simply means that you have to wait until a dog is fully mature before you can deem it show/breeding quality.
You are only permitted to breed a puppy from August Willow Aussies with another purebred registered Australian Shepherd.
If you are buying a show/breeding prospect I do guarantee scissor bites and both testicles descended by 1 year of age. You will not be offered a replacement if the dog has been bred.
All of my breeding dogs are tested for genetic diseases and will be clear for PRA/PRCD, HC/HSF4, CEA, CD, HUU, CMO, CMR1, & NCL6.
Lifetime genetic disease guarantee & 5 year health guarantee.
Health guarantee does not cover any parasite, internal or external as this is a treatable condition. To the best of my knowledge all puppies leave here parasite free.
I register all of my puppies for their new owners they will either come with AKC or ASDR registration depending on how their parents are registered. All of my dogs are AUSTRALIAN SHEPHERDS. None of my puppies are permitted to be taken to another breed (Miniature American Shepherd).
If you are purchasing a puppy as pet only you will get Limited Registration papers. This means your puppy does not have breeding rights. If you breed a dog sold as pet only you will not be able to register the litter. You will also be fined for breach of contract and subject to legal litigation.
