Even if a pup is mark sold or deposit pending, contact us and let us know you are interested. We will put you on our "back up" list - in case someone should change their mind! (It happens almost every litter.) Also, you need to contact us A.S.A.P. if you want one of the pups that are available to secure your "pick".
Deposit money is collected from those who have requested to be placed on our waiting list once the litter is born and we know we have what you want. This ensures you get the puppy of your choice. If you are interested, email
If you are on our waiting list, you will be notified when it is confirmed that our female is pregnant and then after the puppies are born. Around 3-4 weeks of age, you may come out and see the litter. Around 4 weeks old, owners usually begin making their picks (in the order that deposit money was received). At 8 weeks, the puppies will be released IF each individual puppy is eating well and is socialized to our liking.
Note: Pups flying home are required to be 8 weeks old.
The deposit fee is $500 (applies to final price of pup). Deposit money guarantees that you get the puppy you pick out. NOTE: Please be sure you are ready to commit when you send the deposit money. If you decide to cancel, a $150 fee will be removed from the deposit fund.
Why is a deposit required?
We require a deposit to be paid once the litter is born in order to hold your pick. The above stated amount was chosen as it is significant enough to demonstrate a commitment. If you decide to back out after leaving the deposit money with us, money will be withheld as defined above. Once you pick a puppy, we will be turning down others who might otherwise be interested in that puppy. This fee helps cover costs involved. Let us know if you have any questions.
If you are interested in being placed on the waiting list for future litters, fill out the form below.
(It will be sent as an email.)
[Above info Required to be on waiting list.]
As mentioned above, we will be releasing the puppies no sooner than 8 weeks old pending how well each one is doing with eating dog food. For socialization of the puppy, it is considered best to keep him with the litter until 8 weeks old. If you have another dog, this will help that socialization come along nicely. Once we notify you that your puppy is ready for release, the remainder of the puppy fee will be due.
We are located north of Dallas, Texas. We have shipped several puppies in the past and this would not be a problem, but note it is at your expense (we help line everything up, though). NOTE: We have shipped to Canada, but will NOT make international shipments elsewhere - only within the 48 continental states and Canada (so long as the flight time does not exceed 6 hours).
Shipping is through the airlines. We take care of everything. You simply have to show up to the airport at the time of arrival.
.........Pups 8 to 11 weeks old -- $500, which includes crate, health certificate, microchip, and flight. If you want a crate large enough for the pup's adult size, the cost is an additional $150.
.........Pups 12 to 15 weeks old - $750, which includes larger crate, health certificate, microchip, rabies shot, and flight.
Ear cropping is additional. To have our veterinarian do the procedure, it is $500.
Note: Pups sold through GarrettsDobermans.com are ultimately the responsibility of the litter's owner. You have 48 hours from the time you receive the pup to have your vet check the pup for any immediate problems. After that time, it is your responsibility to provide the pup with the proper care necessary to keep it healthy including finishing full series of puppy shots, rabies at 12 weeks, heartworm prevention, deworming when necessary, etc.
Getting with a good veterinarian will help guide you through this confusing year of caring for your young pup. Additionally, we recommend that you do not expose your pup to any environment where the potential for exposure to harmful pathogens might be high. For example, as much fun as taking your pup to the dog park or even Petsmart might sound, we highly advise against it until your pup has completed its full vacinations. This is extremely important with this particular breed as Dobermans are more susceptible to Parvo.
