At Box Elder Creek Boxers, we strive to find exceptional homes for each of our puppies. It is our goal to provide each of our Buyers with a Healthy, Happy, well socialized companion. To learn more about our puppies please see our "About Our Puppies" page.
Puppies are ready for adoption when they are around 8 weeks old, at that time you are welcome to schedule a visit to adopt a puppy from among any "available" puppies we may have at that time. Should you want to "Reserve" a puppy to assure it's placement with you on "Adoption Day" we do offer the following Reserve Policy's.
Reservations - ($200 Deposit Required. Puppy will be placed on hold for you and the deposit will be applied to purchase price.) Puppies may be reserved in advance to assure their placement with you at 8 weeks of age. Puppies are available for reservations once we have "individual" pictures taken of the puppies and have them posted on the website at around 4 - 5 weeks old. If you see an "available" puppy you are interested in reserving please contact us to inquire about having the puppy reserved for you. Waiting List Option - ($200 deposit required. Name added to list and once a puppy is reserved deposit is applied to purchase price.) A "waiting list" is available for those that would like to be given priority in choosing from among puppies, before the puppies are offered to others at 4-5 weeks old.
We maintain 1 waiting list, a limited amount of deposits will be accepted for the list once we have a confirmed litter(s) on the way. Puppies will be offered to those on the "waiting list" in the order the names were added to the waiting list. Should you NOT find a puppy of your liking to reserve in the current litter, then you are welcome to "pass" and remain on our waiting list for the next available litter. Should we not be planing another litter reasonably soon, we may prefer to just refund your deposit.
Litter information will be posted to our website once the puppies have arrived.
Around 1 week of age - "Group" pictures of the puppies will be posted on our website, so that everyone may see them.
4 - 5 weeks of age - 1. We will have taken individual pictures of the puppies and those on our "waiting list" will begin the process of choosing and reserving their puppies. 2. If there are any "available" puppies remaining in the litter after those on the waiting list have chosen from among them, they will be marked as such and a deposit may be sent to us to reserve the puppy.
At 6 weeks of age - Buyers will receive detailed information to help prepare for their puppy's homecoming. Around 7 - 8 weeks - 1. Pictures will be updated on our website. Video may be provided if time allows. 2. Puppies go for their Check-Up to get their puppy "Report Cards" and you will be notified of the results. Appointments times will be scheduled for everyone to pick up their puppy on the "Adoption Day".
At around 9 weeks of age - Adoption Day!!!
Our Visitation Policy
Please understand that we run a very busy household, with both two and four legged members. For this reason we allow visitors once our puppies are 8 weeks old. If there are any puppies "available" for adoption at that time, we invite any interested Buyers to schedule an appointment to meet any available puppies.
The majority of our puppies will be $1400. Should a particular puppy vary from that price, it will be marked as such.
Paypal is the safest and easiest way to send the Reservation Deposit. It is quick and easy to use with or without a paypal account, and will give you the option of sending your payment using a Credit Card, Debit Card or Paypal account. Should you reserve a puppy, we will send you information via E-mail so that you can send your $200 deposit + the $10 user fee. We will also accept a Cashiers Check or Postal Money Order for the Deposit, if requested. However, the Deposit would need to be overnight-ed to us, to ensure the placement of the puppy with you. PLEASE NOTE: We accept CASH ONLY for the remaining balance due at the time your puppy is picked up.
AKC Registration Policy
Puppies are registered with the AKC. All our puppies are purchased as "pets/companions" and are sold on a Spay/Neuter agreement that requires the procedure be done by 8 months of age. All our puppies sold as "pets" have AKC Registration papers that will be "Limited"; this means that your Boxer is registered with the AKC but that it is being purchased for a "Pet/companion" and breeding/show rights are not given, offspring would not be registrable. Your puppy may compete in Obedience, Agility etc. but is not eligible to be shown in a Conformation Event. Full Registration which includes breeding & show rights are only given occasionally on a very limited basis and must be arranged in advance.
We prefer people to pick up their puppy in person instead of having them shipped.
