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 ARE NONREFUNDABLE TO HOLD A PUPPY. You will need to add puppy deposit to cart under Puppies for sale to place a deposit. 

-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 4.5% transaction fee to cover credit card fees/batch fees on the balance.

To avoid this fee, please pay IN FULL at the time you place the deposit by adding puppy to cart. (Fee will only be waived for full pay, at the time of deposit, in advance, on Puppies under 5 weeks of age. If you only pay the $300 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 $300 (nonrefundable) 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. All other balances need to be paid by the 7th week of age of the puppy, Except on cash at pickup. 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 payments, deposits and balances, are non refundable unless the dog would sadly pass away.

-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.

​-Puppies normally leave our care at the 7th or 8th week of age, which is what AKC recommends. Each puppy will be evaluated individually for a release date, some may get to leave earlier and some later depending on each Puppies  development, and the new puppy parents need to be understanding that the puppies health is our utmost concern. We are so excited for you to get your new baby, but we must make sure he or she is put first mentally and physically.

-Holding Puppies: Puppies that won’t be picked up by 8 weeks of age, 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 $10 daily/boarding rate. If you do not pay your puppy in full they will be available for adoption by other families. 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 your 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.

- ALL OF OUR DOGS ARE AKC BRED! Puppies are listed as pet only-Spay/Nueter, (no papers) or come with limited AKC registration -Spay/Nueter as noted. They are being sold as family 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!

-We can deliver/ship to some areas. Please inquire for pricing. Shipping usually runs about $350.00.  Puppy Nanny Service/Airlines is an option but currently runs $450 plus a $50 drop off fee. Everything is very dependent on the weather, if it is too hot or too cold there can be restrictions on the flights therefore they will have to go Nanny! We only ship in air controlled airlines, however exterior temperature can cause issues, and we will not subject Puppies to extreme hot/cold temperatures! We can meet for free within a 30 mile radius, after that we do charge by the mile unless prior agreement is made.

We offer a one year GENETIC Health Guarantee. This covers life threatening genetic defects. Please see contract area.
