Once your application has been approved and once your new Swissy puppy is born and doing well, a $500.00 non-refundable deposit may be made on him/her. I do not guarantee anyone a puppy until they have been evaluated and I know they are being placed in the appropriate homes. If I feel I do not have a puppy that will suit your needs your deposit will be refunded. The remaining balance is due before shipping or at the time you pick up of your puppy. Shipping cost will be the responsibility of purchaser i.e. Cost of crate, health certificate and airline fee. Make checks payable to Deanna Never or Swiss Run Swissy.
Note: All puppies sold will be charged 6% VT State Sales Tax.
