How to
Reserve Your Bichon Frise
Puppy From Us
How to Make a Reservation:
We take reservations for puppies before they are born.  To reserve please
contact us via email or phone.  We have a short questionnaire that we will
email to you.  I will also need information such as name, address, phone and
gender preference.  

We require a $200 deposit to officially reserve the puppy or puppies for you.  
This deposit will go toward the purchase price.  The deposit is non-refundable
once it is received, unless we simply don't have enough puppies.  No personal
checks will be accepted.

We feel it's important that you know that our puppies are not kennel raised,
but raised in our home as part of our family. This means that you are getting a
much higher quality puppy and that an abundance of time and attention has
been given to your puppy.

Kennels can sell their puppies for less because so much less goes into the
raising of the puppies than ours.  We spend time with our puppies, teaching,
loving, socializing, playing with them, and even overnight crate training so
that your puppy doesn't get you up through the night when you take him/her
home.  

Our price means that an abundance of time and attention has gone into
making sure that your bichon puppy has had the right start in life as all
puppies should, and that the transition from our home to  yours will go very
smoothly.  By the time you take your baby home, he/she is already
accustomed to people, attention, everyday sights &  sounds in the home.

That may not sound like much but most puppies who are raised in a kennel
are frightened and startled at the slightest noise because they've never been
in the home environment, and they've never been exposed to the sights and
sounds of a typical day in  a home, ie., people, love, kisses, attention,
cuddling, snuggling and playing.  Most kennel puppies will run from you
because they don't understand what the human hand is - most have never
even been held!  

Our puppies are pre-spoiled and pre-socialized when you get him/her.  You
won't have to worry about the timidness & snappiness that comes with kennel
puppies.  Basically, you won't have to be concerned with anything but just
enjoying your sweet, playful, happy bichon puppy from a reputable and ethical
Bichon breeder.  Because with us quality matters and our puppies are worth it!

On another note, we don't raise any other breed - Bichons only. So, there is
never the concern that your puppy will grow up to look like anything other
than a purebred Bichon Frise. Another assurance which comes with a home
raised puppy is that breeding is monitored and there is absolutely never any
inbreeding which could result in a very unhealthy puppy with many flaws in
appearance as well as personality.  So before you go to a kennel for a better
"deal" consider the peace of mind that you'll have when you purchase your
Bichon from us.



We do not consider a puppy officially reserved until we have received the
deposit to hold the puppy for you.  Reservations & gender preferences are
made in the order that the deposits are received.  If we do not have as many
puppies as we originally expected, your deposit will be promptly refunded.  
References are available upon request.  Our Getting to Know YOu
Questionnaire is below.

The following questions are designed to help us get to know you so that we
may  determine a suitable match between one of our a Bichon puppies and
you. If you have additional information that you would like to tell us, please do
so... we are very interested in anything you'd like us to know about your
family. The more we know, the easier it is for us to match your family with the
right puppy.  Please return this questionnaire via email.

Copy (not forward) this entire e-mail and paste it onto a new e-mail that you
will send. Fill in all of your answers.   Then, send this back to me with your
answers. Thank you.

We look forward to hearing from you!

require you to purchase a puppy from us, but serves to let you be notified

Our Spay / Neuter Contract:
The following is a sample of our Spay/Neuter contract:


The following agreement is between  Bonnie Clinton (breeder), hereafter
referred to as "Seller", and ______________,hereafter referred to as
"Purchaser".
In consideration of a purchase price of $  _________. of which one-hundred
dollars ($200.00) is a nonrefundable deposit, the Seller transfers all rights in
fee simple determinable, privileges and responsibilities associated with the
ownership of the female/male puppy of the Bichon Frise breed to Purchaser
as of the date and time specified below with the following conditions
subsequent:
COLOR: ____________________________ SEX______________
LITTER REG. NO.: ______________ DOB: _____________
MARKINGS: ____________________________________________________
SIRE: ____________________________
SIRE'S  REG. NO.: ________________
DAM: ____________________________
DAM'S  REG. NO.: ______________
Purchaser agrees to neuter/spay the puppy before it reaches one year of age
. Purchaser agrees to supply Seller with a veterinarian's letter by certified mail
as proof of a neuter/spay. If Purchaser fails to neuter/spay this puppy and
provide proof to the Seller by one year of age, rights and ownership of the
dog will automatically terminate and revert back to Seller who may
immediately assume possession of the dog. Seller's reasonable attorney's
fees for recovery of the dog will be paid by the Purchaser. It is understood by
all parties to this agreement that this puppy of the above specified description
is of pet quality. Purchaser acknowledges and agrees that this puppy will be
registered by limited registration. In the event that the Purchaser does not
have the puppy properly neutered/spayed, any offspring issuing from this
pet-quality puppy are not eligible for registration with the ABC, AIBC, AKC,
CKC or UKC.

When to spay/neuter: Generally this should be done when the
puppy has reached at least 5-6 months for a female and 6-8 months for a
male. The older the dog, the more able it will be to withstand the anesthesia.
There is no need to wait for a female to have her first heat cycle before she is
spayed. In fact, you can avoid the problems associated with estrus by spaying
her before it occurs. There is also no need to wait for the male to become
sexually mature.

Why spay/neuter: Fixing your dog prevents pregnancy and the birth
of unwanted puppies. It avoids the need to restrain the dog during estrus.  It
reduces the tendency of male dogs to urinate in the house, marking his
territory.  Additionally, it avoids reproductive-related problems such as
tumors, pyometra, false pregnancy, prostate infections, and old-age cancers.

Why should this dog be spayed/neutered? Any puppy sold as a pet should not
be bred. This is simply for the improvement and maintenance of the breeding
line for Bichon Frises. Breeders have striven for years to select and perfect
the temperament and conformation of Bichon Frises.

They are bred not only for their companionship, but their beauty and
intelligence . Dogs are eligible for a breeding program only if they are able to
reproduce either their own quality or better quality in each successive
generation.

Breeding is not to be done casually nor is it a money-making venture.  It is
very time consuming and energy demanding. By demanding that this
pet-quality puppy be neutered/spayed, it avoids mass-production of average
quality Bichon Frises, controls the already overblown dog population, and
improves the overall fitness of the purebred line.


This does not mean that this puppy is an inferior dog. This puppy is as
capable as any of its littermates of becoming a lovable, well-trained, and
perfectly happy dog. This puppy  is better suited for pet placement as a
household pet.   

Given the proper amount of love and attention, nothing should prevent this
puppy from becoming an excellent companion and family member.


We the undersigned have read, understood and agree with the terms of this
contract.
