~~~If you are interested in adding a Wingshot puppy to your home, please read this page~~~
please bear with me if I am slow to reply to your messages...we've had so much going on .... Jeff had a heart attack which lead to a triple bypass , was back in the hospital again for some problems, and then again for a stent, and now having issues with his blood sugar (we think is coming from his new meds) , having so many side effects from the new meds it's hard to know what to take ...... and I have been dealing with some smaller health issues of my own, so I don't get to messages everyday.
(other than the above health issues ) 2018 was a wonderful year. To all of you that opened your hearts & homes , adding a Wingshot puppy, we thank you so much !

** Please note: A deposit made to reserve an available puppy is non refundable. **
We want to know where our pups go and what type of home/lifestyle they will have, so if you decide you'd like to place a deposit for a Wingshot puppy we ask that you share your personal information with us. We are not trying to be nosey, but these breeds are not a match for every home. We do not accept a deposit without knowing information about the new owner...example: home/family info (work or school, children, current pets, fenced yard, etc), outdoor activities, plans for the puppy, your experience with raising a puppy, how you know of the breed, etc. I do not use an "application" , just email us your info. **PLEASE NOTE: THESE ARE NOT BREEDS THAT SHOULD BE LEFT IN A CRATE ALL DAY WHILE THE FAMILY IS AT WORK/SCHOOL **
Vizsla puppies are $1200. Braque puppies are $1400. We require a $200. deposit to reserve a new puppy. At the time of the deposit you need to specify if you want a male or female puppy. The deposit is non refundable & non transferable unless there are not enough pups born to fulfill your reservation. Your check should be made payable to "Wingshot Kennels". The mailing address is on the "home page" of this website and will also be at the bottom of most of the email correspondence. The balance is due when you pick up your puppy. For deposits: we accept personal check, bank certified check , money order or paypal (please use the payment address of "firstname.lastname@example.org " for PayPal payments). For the balance: we prefer the final payment in cash or a bank certified check. If you want to make the final payment by PayPal please add 3% to the amount due to cover the PayPal fee,( this is not required for the deposit amount). If we deliver your puppy, please make payment in cash. If for some reason you will be late picking up your puppy (past the scheduled puppy day) you are still required to make the final payment by the scheduled puppy day...you can do this by mailing a bank check to arrive by puppy day . If you message us with questions, please use the email address: email@example.com.
I take photo's of each litter after they are born and as they grow and send out to the new owners in an album via email or post on FaceBook or Instagram at various times to keep the owners updated on their progress. Once the puppies start eating and playing I take video's.
Most of our puppies are picked up in person at our home at 7 or 8 weeks old; the puppy selections/ placements are made on this day. We do not require new owners to pick out their puppy before the take home date unless prior plans prevent you from being here on the take home date. If you are getting the "last puppy", we do not know which specific puppy it will be .... until the take home date. For the pick up day (we refer to it as "puppy day") we schedule each new owner a time to come in the order of your reservation number. We try to make this day pleasant for everyone so if you will be picking up your puppy we ask that you clear your calendar for this day. We understand that things come up sometimes, but if you can't be here on "puppy day", we do charge an extra $50 to hold your puppy longer. Your new puppy needs to be in your home by 9 weeks old....it suddenly has to get familiar with not seeing the mother and not playing /sleeping with it's littermates....so the puppy needs to bond with you during this transition. If you can't be here on the scheduled puppy day you are still required to pay for your puppy in full by puppy day.
If you can't come in person, we can air ship your puppy as cargo via Delta Airlines ..... the cost of shipping is not included in the price of the puppy. The total cost of air travel is $425, puppies are usually flown from the Atlanta airport to get a non stop flight. The total shipping cost includes the flight & insurance, a travel crate, vet visit to obtain a health certificate which is required to fly, a 2nd shot, extra deworming and any additional necessary stomach medicine, and travel to the Atlanta airport. We put a baby receiving blanket in the travel crate (we never use shredded newspaper) along with some chew goodies. Puppies are familiar with the baby blankets, we use these in the crates when the puppies take a nap. Puppies must be 8 weeks old to fly. The total final payment (puppy & flight expense) is due one week before the flight. If you are having your puppy air shipped, you will need to make your selection from photos & video that will be sent to you. The 2nd flight option is for the owner to fly into either Atlanta or Birmingham airport, we meet you at the airport with the puppy and you fly back home the same day with the puppy in the cabin with you. If the flight will require the puppy to be in the airline's care for more than 5 hours we STRONGLY urge you to use the 2nd option for flights. We have always had excellent service from Delta but recent changes now require the puppy to arrive at Atlanta cargo 3 hours before the flight departure. When you add this to the actual flight time and the processing time once the plane has landed we feel it is too long for an 8 week old puppy in a crate.
If you'd prefer your puppy not to fly, we can sometimes make arrangements to deliver the puppy to you. The cost of delivery depends on how far we travel.
PLEASE NOTE : WE WILL NOT RELEASE A PUPPY TO A "PET TRANSPORT COMPANY " . If something happens last minute that prevents you from being here on the scheduled puppy pick up day, please contact us immediately . We will work out other arrangements to get your puppy to you. DO NOT MAKE A PAYMENT TO A "PET TRANSPORT COMPANY ".
We provide you with a "puppy packet" which contains articles on various information...examples: supplies you will need; vaccinations; food, plants & things to avoid, tips on house training & nipping; etc. We also provide a health guarantee which covers a 26 month hip guarantee and provide you with a record of the dates of the puppy's shot, deworming and any other medicine given.
All of our Vizsla's are AKC registered and some are cross registered with NAVHDA. All of our Braque's are registered with NAVHDA and some are also registered with Canada (CKC). All puppies will be registered individually and have either an AKC or NAVHDA limited registration, this is a non-show & non-breeding registration. You must provide us with a full name for your puppy when you come to pick it up. All puppies have their tails docked and dewclaws removed. All pups have their 1st shot & several dewormings before going to your home. At pick up, you will receive a health record detailing everything . The puppies are handled, played with and talked to daily and have visits from the grandkids.
