Deposit and Selection Procedure
Clients will select their puppy in the order that deposits are received. If you are out of state, you can select via photos or videos if available. Many have flown in to see and select their pups. When it is your turn to select you have 24 hours to give me a decision, and then we move to the next family with a deposit. Deposits are non refundable. **WE NOW ARE REQUIRED TO CHARGE TEXAS SALES TAX** If we are unable to supply you with a puppy that you have requested, (for example, litter is born and all male and you requested a female) then you have the option of moving to another litter, changing your selection in the current litter or a refund. Our puppies are usually long sold prior to when they are ready to leave. I know some would rather select and place a deposit at the same time, but since our pups sell out, this option is not available. The only way to secure your puppy is to make a deposit and then select when we notify you. Priority is always given to clients with deposits down. The deposit form must be filled out and emailed or mailed within three days of receiving deposits. Deposits will be accepted by check when accompanied with deposit form. All final balances are due at six weeks, and pups can generally be shipped or picked up at eight weeks. The Buyer agrees that if the puppy is not picked up on the release date set by the breeder, there will be a $30 a day boarding fee. We accept final payments with Cash only (no checks), if you are picking up your pup.
All labrador puppies are sold on a AKC limited registration. Please check with AKC for full definition. We do not want our pups to go to a breeding, kenneled life. AKC limited registration means the offspring of AKC limited registration dogs are not registrable with AKC, even though they are purebred Labrador Retrievers.
Parents are cleared of hip displasia either by OFA certification or by veterinarian x-rays. Eyes are checked, and all males are DNA tested.
We love to get emails and photos along the way. Treasure your new pup, keep him safe. He will return to you a lifetime of delight and devotion.
TRAVEL ARRANGEMENTS FOR PUPPIES
Legacy-Labs is located near the Dallas/ Fort Worth Metroplex. We will schedule days for puppy pick up and let you know the date in advance. For those of you requiring airline travel, we have easy access to both DFW airport and Love Field.
First Option: A member of the Legacy Labrador team will fly your puppy to you. Your puppy will rest comfortably at our feet in the cabin of the plane. We will meet you at your airport and hand deliver your puppy to you. Your puppy will have constant care and comfort! The price of this service will vary based on your location.
Second Option: You can fly to the Dallas/ Fort Worth airport (either DFW or Love Field) and we will meet you at the airport with your puppy and his/ her health certificate. Your puppy will need a reservation on your return flight home and the airline will charge a fee. We are happy to provide an airline approved soft sided carrier for your puppy for an additional $55.00. Please let us know in advance if you would like to purchase a carrier from us. There is a fee of $100 for legacy Labradors to bring your puppy and its carrier to the airport.
Third Option: If none of the first 2 options work for you, then give us a call and we will discuss the newest latest options, as the travel options seem to constantly change. Shipping to your nearest international airport typically costs a minimum of $450 to cover basic costs (Airline Cost, Crate, Vet Check, Paperwork, Travel to and from Airport).
Effective communication: We encourage you to thoroughly read our web site and Facebook page. We have created so much information for you, our potential clients. We try to be effective communicators, however, as you can imagine, it is impossible to talk every phone call we receive thru this process. We prefer specific questions via text or email, so we can answer at a quiet point in our day.
Legacy-Labs has expanded to include rare RED labradors as well as our WHITE labradors. We will try to keep the web site up to date, but realistically it is safe to assume that we are always behind on website updates, as the care and birth and raising of our pups completely consumes our energies. Please take a moment and call or email and we will give you the latest information available. Please keep in mind the prices quoted are general guidelines and can change. Our White Labradors start at $2,500 and our Labradoodles start at $1,000 however unusual colors and patterns are significantly higher. All parti labradoodles, red, and chocolate colors range from $1750-$3000. Deposits for all puppies are $500. We accept deposits via credit card and check only. **We are now required to charge Texas sales tax** Please call Legacy Labs at 972-679-5720 to place a deposit.
Puppies will come to you with all age appropriate vaccinations; Labrador Retrievers will come with AKC limited registration, parasite control. Dew claws are generally removed; additionally our pups go through an extensive written health check by our vet, which will be sent to you along with registration papers and health records.
