The cost for a Pet [AKC limited registration] is:
Havanese - $1200
Golden Retriever - $1200
Non-refundable deposit amounts for either one is $300
The cost for a Show [AKC full registration], which I occasionally sell is:
Havanese - $1800
Golden Retriever - $1800
I accept paypal for the deposit amount $312 (reflecting the 4% that paypal charges me), which is non-refundable, and final payment can be through paypal as well.
If you are sending a check as a deposit...I will hold the puppy not more than 4 (working) days for your check to arrive. I think that is a reasonable amount of time for a check to arrive at its destination.
If it would be easier on you, I would also accept installments on the puppy while it is with me, with the final payment in cash when picked up.
I will only accept CASH or PAYPAL on the puppy balance at the time of pick up.
My PayPal amounts refelect the paypal service charges.
