Deposits & Payments

Thank you for your interest in one of our Muddy River Babies!

To put a deposit on a puppy please read below....ALL DEPOSITS/PAYMENTS ARE NONREFUNDABLE TO HOLD A PUPPY. You will need to add PUPPY DEPOSIT to cart under the Puppies for sale tab to place a deposit or email or text me for an invoice.

All puppies will vary on their nonrefundable deposit depending on price. Minimum Deposit is $350.00 on Puppies under $1500. Any puppies over $1500 will have a nonrefundable deposit that will vary. I will have to send you an invoice for these if not paying in full.

-PLEASE NOTE: A puppy can not be held without a deposit.  First deposit holds a pup.

Payment options:

If you are a local pick up, please pay the balance by CASH at pick up. If you do not pay cash, and paypal/credit card is used, you will incur a 5% transaction fee to cover credit card fees/batch fees on the balance and credit card will need to be paid 10 days in advance from pick up. It will not be done at pickup. 

Fee will only be waived for full pay, AT THE TIME OF DEPOSIT ONLY, in advance, on Puppies that are newborn to 3 weeks of age. For example, If you only pay the $350 Deposit, the balance will incur the fee if you want to pay it by credit card or paypal.

-NO checks/NO money orders

(please note: We are aware of the cashiers check scam and will not accept payments this way and you will be reported)


We require atleast a deposit of $350, some require $600 Or more and will be noted, (nonrefundable applied to balance) to hold a dachshund puppy until ready for their new home. Again, this deposit is nonrefundable, as the puppy is being put on hold for you and we are passing on other buyers!!!

If the puppy is being delivered/shipped, the balance plus shipping must be paid in full 10 DAYS before. Shipping Is always paid by the buyer/client, and is at the buyers risk. (Please see pricing/ contract tab for more info...Quotes on shipping can change.)

All other balances need to be paid by the 7th week of age of the puppy at pick up or by credit card if not picking up until a later date.

Failure to pay the balances by the DUE DATE will result in the puppy being put back up for sale and deposits forfeited.

We can also invoice you weekly if you want to slowly pay off the balance until the puppy is ready to leave.

-All puppies posted are on a first come first serve basis. We always get first pick.

-Once the deposit or balance is paid there are NO refunds or switching dogs unless the dog would sadly pass away. (See contract tab for more info)

​-Puppies normally leave our care at the 7th week of age or 8th week of age, which is what AKC recommends for best adjustment into their new home and surroundings. Our puppies health and development is a priority, so if the puppy needs extra time before leaving we will let you know, otherwise please plan on picking up about the 7th week/8th week, date will be noted.

-Holding Puppies: Puppies NEED to be picked up on the 7th/8th week unless they require extra time for health reasons which I will advise as soon as possible. Please look at the estimated pick up date before putting a deposit. If this does not work for you, please email me before putting a deposit so I can check my schedule as I do my schedule around the pick up week/weekends (Thurs/Friday/Sat/Sunday) I am not a kennel and do not have staff, only family who helps watch my dogs. Puppies that won’t be picked up by 8 weeks of age will need to be approved in advance to be held and will need to be paid in full by the 7th week to be held plus the boarding fee. They will be held at a daily rate of $20 daily/boarding rate. If you do not pay your puppy in full and boarding fee, they will be available for adoption by other families.  Again, we are not a kennel, so when puppies are not picked up on time it can mess up the family schedule when we plan trips or have family events so please try to pick them up on time. This rarely happens but has happened, If I can not reach you by phone or email after several attempts, we will automatically place puppies back up for adoption. Same applies to paying the balance on your puppy. It is the clients responsibility to make the final balance by the due date and failure to do so will result in loss of deposit and puppies being placed back up for adoption. Most clients I speak to weekly by sending photos and updates of their new pup so usually this is not a problem. 


Puppies are listed as pet only (no papers)


Puppies come with limited AKC registration - Spay/Nueter.

This is noted next to the price.

ALL of our puppies are being sold as family/companion pets.

Full AKC will be on certain litters only, and will be at a much higher price. If it is available, it will be listed.

We have the right to place puppies and deny anyone a sale and refund a deposit at anytime at our discretion without giving a reason! 

-No puppies will be sold to puppy mills, pet brokers, research facilities, pet flippers nor to pet stores....they are looking for FOREVER homes ONLY. If I find out I was manipulated and lied to and one of my dogs was purchased for this reason I will file suit against the perpetrator to get the dog back, along with monetary damages. I only want my dogs going to companion loving homes!

-If you are coming in from the Houston area, I can usually meet you in Seguin for pick up to help cut a couple hours off your drive round trip. I usually make one trip per puppy litter over to that area so please be flexible. Otherwise, I can possibly meet within a 30 minute area from my home if needed.

-We can deliver/ship to some areas. Please inquire for pricing and availability to your area before placing a deposit! We prefer clients to fly in because it is usually cheaper and better for the pup!

AND if you fly in to get your puppy, downtown San Antonio and the famous San Antonio Riverwalk is just a short trip from the airport and we can meet you in San Antonio free of charge to pick up your puppy. I live about hour to hour half from airport/ downtown depending on traffic. You are also welcome to rent a car and come here!

Shipping prices and paperwork requirements went up on 08-01-2018. Shipping estimate: $475

For that price you could actually fly in and carry your puppy on the plane with you which is safer and better for the puppy! I will not be doing any early morning flights anymore since the airport is an hour to hour half away depending on traffic and these flights are too early for drop off. We only do 11am and after flights. Winter and Summer Shipping may be closed off, inquire for your area. Fall and Spring usually have more favorable conditions.

We offer a 48 hour infectious disease guarantee, starting from the time they leave us. See contract tab for more info.

We also offer a one year Life Threatening GENETIC Health Guarantee. For example, life threatening genetic diseases such as heart muscle disease, congenital heart abnormalities, hereditary bleeding disorders, megaesophagus. This covers life threatening genetic defects ONLY one year from date of birth of the puppy. Please see contract tab for more info.
