Home of Fawn, Brindle & Black Great Danes

Shipping Policies:

We prefer people to come visit and see why our dogs are special and so you can pick the one you like. Often people pick a different dog than the one they had planned to buy. However with Web Cam providing Live Video, many customers far away can make decision just fine!

Clients on the Coasts tend to have pups flown to them, compared to Clients near the Mid-West will drive. Taking a weekend drive for your new family member for your home should be worth a weekend trip when your baby should give you at least the next 10 years of their life for you! Is a weekend or even a week out of your life too much to ask for your new best friend?

Costs of shipping = Puppy + Airplane flight, included is the shipping crate for the pups and the cost of the Health Certificate if air shipping! I make nothing on this service and only offer it as a favor to buyer that cannot take the time to come pick up puppy here.

I have shipped many dogs domestically so I am somewhat familiar with procedures. The following concerns would apply should you NOT pick up the animal in person!

I would have to take dog to Vet get the shipping Health Certificate for dog – within 10 days of flight (72-hours International), obtain a pet carrier, take dog & carrier to airport at least 2 hours but not more than 4 hours before flight.

$500 For puppies under 12 weeks, I would recommend the 200 Series Medium size container 28”x21”x22” and it will weigh about 15-18 pounds empty.
$600 For puppies under 16 weeks, I would recommend the 400 Series Large size container 36”x25”x28” and it will weigh about 18-24 pounds empty.
$800 For puppies under 20 weeks, I would recommend the 500 Series Extra-Large size container 40”x27”x30” and it will weigh about 30-34 pounds empty.

The Price of the Airplane ticket depends on the size of the container.

Puppies are cheap; however bigger dogs are high dollar to air ship!


I ship using American Airlines and DELTA Airlines. That is all that flies out of (SGF), Springfield, MO.

Airlines also require puppies must be at least 8 weeks of age.

Temperatures must be between 85-10 degrees F and cage must be larger than dog shipped.

Return Policy:

Returns accepted anytime – no refunds! I also take in other papered Great Danes that are in need of finding a new home.
If for any reason you cannot take of one of my children PLEASE return my baby to me!
Required – see Sales Contract for details if required for sale.

Deposit Policy:

50% Deposits accepted & will hold animal 30 days beyond 8 weeks of age or time of deposit, unless additional arrangements are made.
Deposits are non-refundable.

Health Care Guarantee:

Vet checked when dewclaws removed and additionally if shipping by air or requested by customer at customer expense.
Health Guarantee is included FREE for 1st year against non-visible genetic defects. I offer additional extended warranty that is optional – $300 extra for 1st year after the the normal 1 year guarantee. If you want longer – $200 per additional year.
The “Health Guarantee – Extended Warranty” is similar to an extended warranty; purchase the program if you feel you want it. Some breeders include this in their pricing structure while I chose to allow customers to decide if they wish to purchase this option. I have never had a puppy returned to me for ANY reason that was due to illness or defect! This option might be of consideration for those who do not take the time to come and pick up a puppy in person! While some clients have purchased several years worth of extended Warranty, nobody has EVER requested this option after the customer sees (for themselves in person), the health of my animals and how my children are raised!
