Shiloh Puppies

How it Works

If you would like to be put on the list for a puppy, please fill out our Pre-Adoption Questionnaire along with deposit or prepayment. You can fill out our online puppy questionnaire or print out our puppy questionnaire and scan/email it to us or mail it to us.  Please also ask your Veterinarian, who has cared for your pet(s) fill out the Veterinary Reference form

Before you are placed on our list for a puppy, a deposit of $500 must be received.  Deposits may be sent via PayPay to StraussHausShepherds@yahoo.com or through Zelle (contact us for Zelle payments). 

Deposits and Prepayments: 

  • To reserve a  space on our puppy list, a $500 non-refundable deposit is required. There is no guarantee that you will get a puppy from any certain litter.  Deposits put you on a list, but do not guarantee a puppy from a given litter.  Note, on the Adoption Questionnaire:  Refunds will be made if we do not have a puppy for you, but not if you change your mind.

  • Prices start at $3,000 

  • Final payment is due two weeks prior to the litter evaluation and puppies will be sent to their homes immediately after the litter evaluation.

Shipping and puppy pick up fees: 

  • The Litter Evaluations are done at approximately 8 weeks of age.  Pups are shipped or picked up within the three-day window following the Litter Evaluation.  Other arrangements must be made ahead of time.  Shipping fees are $350, plus actual airfare. 

  • The $350 fee covers an airline-approved shipping crate (200 series kennel and shipping materials), an ISO compliant microchip, the first round of vaccinations and de-wormings, a Veterinary health certificate, and transportation to the airport. 

  • The puppy pick-up fee is $150-$200, which includes an ISO microchip, de-wormings, and the first round of vaccinations. 

  • If you cannot receive your pup within three days of the Litter Evaluation, we will board your puppy for a rate of $35 a day.  Please note that you will have a minimum of 30 days to plan your date for picking up your puppy from us, or having it shipped to you.

Puppy Placement, pick up and shipping:

  • Puppy placement phone calls will be made between 8 and noon, Eastern Time, the day following the litter evaluation.  Please make sure that you provide a phone number for your puppy placement phone call.

  • Puppies will be ready for pick up after 12:30 p.m. the day following the litter evaluation.

  • Puppies will be shipped the day following the litter evaluation and we will set this up for you two to three weeks in advance of the litter evaluation.  Or you are welcome to pick up your puppy at our facility to fly home with you.
