Routine for Adopting a Karemy Puppy/ Dog
1. Read Adoption Agreement
It is vital that you understand how we care for our puppies/dogs and how we expect them to be cared for in the future in your home. Scroll down to read through it.
2. Fill out Application
If you are interested in adopting one of our pups please fill out the adoption application. We will respond usually within 24 hours to your application.
3. Pregnancy Calendar
Follow the development of your puppy even before it's born. Families that have put a deposit down on a future litter will receive a pregnancy calendar to follow along with the development of the babies.
4. Kennel Visit
If you would like we then will schedule a visit to our kennel to come our to our home in NW Arkansas to see the parents and available puppies. If the puppies are 4 weeks old or older then this counts as your first visit.
These are our visiting hours. Please contact us to set up your appointment.
Monday-Saturday 11:00 am until 8:00 pm
Wednesday 1:00pm- 4:00pm
Sunday 2:00 pm until 5:00 pm
A non-refundable deposit is required to hold a puppy till the pick up date. If a puppy of the sex or color is not in the litter then the deposit is held till the next litter that has what you requested. The deposit is 50% of the total adoption fee (including any extra training that you request). If you are on the list for a future litter, I will e-mail you a pregnancy calendar for mom so you can follow the puppies' development.I will also send pictures of mom just before she delivers. You will be notified when the puppies are born. We try to post photos on our Instagram account each week. Please also note that if a puppy of your color/gender preference and is from two parents of passing health certification, is offered to you and is refused for unacceptable grounds, we withhold the right to dismiss you from our deposit list without returning the deposit.
6. Puppy visits
You are welcome to visit the pups a total of two times as they grow up till it is time to take them home. (They are not very active before 4 weeks and it is just healthier to limit exposure to germs and disease till they are older) These visits aid in making the transition to
their new home easier by exposing them to your smell. For our families that are unable to visit in person, we can set up a webcam visits so they can see the puppies and we can be available to answer questions and conduct a personality test to help families pick their puppy.
7. Education & Preparation
Read, read, read!! There are lots of articles on this site and others. Read about puppy development, training and health information. Next prepare your home and family for the new arrival, it's important to make it safe and convenient for you so house training and basic obedience goes smoothly. We would be glad to help with any questions you have.
8. Pick up day!
On pick up day we will go over lots of info regarding health and initial care of your puppy. Be sure to have your crate ready to keep your puppy out of trouble when you get home and can't watch him.
