We are not a pet store, am amusement park, or a zoo. For disease prevention and for the health of our dogs/puppies, we do not accept any visitors when we have un-vaccinated puppies, pregnant mothers, or females in season (who are to be bred). To compensate for this, we have a separate site for our "puppy parents" where we update pictures and/or videos regularly, so that prospective owners can see their puppies grow. Remember, we're looking after your puppy and are acting in their best interest!
IF we accept visitors in between litters, etc. visits are strictly limited to individuals serious about our puppies.
Puppy Deposits will only be accepted after an application has been approved and there has been a successful phone conversation with the prospective owner. $1000 deposit ($750 is refundable) is required to hold a puppy.
Deposits are only required if a puppy/dog is not ready to go, or is to be held for the prospective owner. When prospective owners come to pick up their puppies, they will have the opportunity to meet us, our dogs and ask questions. If prospective owners submitted a deposit and do not wish to adopt the puppy, they will have the opportunity to decline the puppy and put all the deposit toward a pup from another litter, or receive $550 of their deposit back. In the case that a puppy is not spoken for by the time he/she is ready to go, a deposit is not required to hold the puppy (if coming to see the puppy soon), but an application must first be submitted. In the event that a visitation time cannot be made right away (on our part or the prospective owner), a deposit is required to hold the puppy for you.
We do not have a payment plan and the puppy must be paid for in full at the time of adoption. Individuals are welcome to make payments up until the time that puppies are ready to go, however.
Puppies are ready to go at our discretion, as per our schedule, when our schedule allows. Puppies to be held until a future date (regardless of the reason) will incur a boarding fee of $10/day.
Bedford Reg'd has the right/opportunity to decline ownership to anyone for any reason. Submitting a deposit does not guarantee a "sale" We do not sell to puppy mills, brokers, pet stores or large commercial breeders.
We do not sell our puppies as gifts. Meaning, we do not sell our pups to put under the Christmas tree or for a person outside of one's household. If a family plans and agrees on a puppy prior to adoption and one wants to surprise their children, etc. that is different.
We do not sell to "minors".
Our puppies are not for resale! If you cannot keep your puppy/dog or any reason, they have to come back to Bedford Reg'd (unless suitable arrangements can be made with our approval).
Shipping is possible to select homes, on a climate control carrier at the Buyer's expense. A Transportation fee of $100 in addition to shipping costs, applies.
For deposits, we accept email money transfer, Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover and PayPal (there's a service fee for credit cards). For final payment and pick up in person, we accept cash, Visa, MasterCard and American Express (sorry, there is a service fee for credit card payments). We do not accept cheques/checks of any kind, for any reason, for final payment. Sorry!
