We want to take the stress out of bringing your new fur-baby home. When you adopt one of our puppies you get a complete package.
Please CALL to reserve your puppy 503-303-3800
As of June 2022, we are offering four litters a year. Your paid deposit reserves your "picking order." First deposit gets first pick, second deposit gets second pick, and so on. Picking happens when the puppies are 3 to 5 weeks old, often via video chat. Card payments are accepted over the phone There is no guarantee on color or gender, as we cannot control that.
We accept credit cards :)
We firmly believe each of our puppies are equally valuable, regardless of color or gender. Our primary focus is on finding the right match for you! Your $500 deposit goes toward the total package price of $2,500, so after your deposit $2,000 is due before pickup.
We will start accepting deposits for a litter after a sucessful breeding (watch Facebook for the announcement). Your deposit reserves your picking order (1st pick, 2nd pick, 3rd pick, etc...). Our puppies tend to get reserved before they are born so if you are serious about getting a Kittelson Border-Aussie please do not hesitate to contact us.
We plan to wait till 3 to 5 weeks of age for puppy parents to pick their fur babies. There is no guarantee of color or gender, but you do get a guarantee of a healthy Kittelson puppy of your choice. Their eyes will be open and we will start to see some personality by then. Most people pick remotely via video chat and do not have to come in person. Although you are welcome to come pick in person if you would like.
Your deposit money, of course, goes toward the final price of your puppy. Keep in mind that our deposits are non-refundable. If you change your mind and decide not to adopt your puppy you will forfeit your deposit money. We want to make sure our adopters are committed to our puppies.
Delivery to pick-up points in Portland, Oregon are free. Of course you are also welcome to pick up your pup right from our home.
A fantastic option is to fly out to the Portland, Oregon airport (PDX). My most used pick-up location is a 5-minute Uber drive from the airport. I can meet you there and hand you your puppy. You bring an airline approved carry-on kennel. You fly back with your puppy at your feet. For more information click here, scroll down and click "Pets in the cabin."
As of November 2020, most airlines have stopped permitting pet cargo. Fortunately, Alaska Airlines is keeping it open. However, many airports will not accept pet cargo if the weather forecast at time of arrival is very hot or very cold. We would deliver the puppy to the Portland International Airport and put them on the pet cargo flight you have booked. For more information click here.
As of June 2022, I have not found a reliable ground shipper. There are plenty of people out there that you are able to hire to pick up the puppy from us and drive them (or fly with them) to your door. It is usually costly and we cannot be responsible for your puppy once it leaves our hands. If you have someone you trust we are happy to work with them.
Please contact us with any questions or to reserve your puppy! We accept credit cards.
