Nosam Kennels Puppy Purchase Information
We don't breed dogs, just to sell puppies. We breed to preserve the breeds we work with.
Each breeding is planned well in advance and chosen to produce puppies with sound temperament, structure and ability .
To produce everything we are looking for in the next generation of our breeding program.

HOW TO JOIN A LIST
1. Submit the puppy application!
2 . Read, sign & submit the puppy contract.
3. Place a $600 non-refundable deposit toward our waiting lists.
Please note that our contract is legal and binding when signed. There are NO negations on our contract.
Once we receive your deposit and contract, we will place you on waiting list immediately & you will then receive information/updates about planned litters.
Timing of litters is uncontrolled as well as a successful pregnancy and viable puppies. Nosam Kennels is not able to control the timing of heat cycles, number or gender of puppies. We also have the right to cancel a litter due to the best interest of the parents involved (we put the health of our parent dogs paramount to having a litter). In the event a litter is cancelled, a litter does not take or there are not enough puppies buyers will be given other upcoming options. Heat cycles and timing is not guaranteed. Wait time for a puppy is typically 4-6 months at minimum but can be longer. This means if a litter is unsuccessful or does not have enough puppies, correct sex, you will be bumped to the next litter until we have an available puppy for you and your deposit will transfer over to the next litter.
A responsible breeder will always do what’s best for their dogs and their clients. In order to provide healthy, well bred puppies, we have invested large amounts of money into our program. This would include health testing each dog, building a breeding facility for the dogs to live in, time and money spent on training & titles, and we feed high quality food. We do everything we can to provide the best possible and we support your life of your pup. All this investment reflects the pricing of our puppies. Sure you can find cheaper puppies but you will sacrifice quality and likely pay the same amount or double in vet bills later. Price is listed in our contract!
Non-refundable Deposits are $600 & come off the total price (Doesn't include Paypal fees) Deposits are collected via Paypal! No Checks or Money orders accepted! DONT SEND VIA FRIENDS AND FAMILY! Note: PayPal does add a 3.5% fee to all transactions & we must charge a 6% sales tax on all puppy sales. Deposits are not refundable this means if there are not enough males or females available you will stay on our general list until there is availability from a litter of your choosing.
HOW DO WAIT LISTS WORK
Nosam works by deposited wait lists only. This means that in order to get a puppy you must commit to joining a waiting list in advance. This means that you have settled on Nosam as "your" breeder. You are not on any other waiting lists with other breeders and you are willing to wait to get a puppy from our kennel. If you are in a rush to get a puppy right now. We are likely not the breeder for you as we usually have our waitlists filled well in advance. So everyone who gets a puppy must be prepared wait. We do this in order to promote responsible puppy buying practices. Those who are shopping responsibly will not be in a rush to bring home a well-bred puppy because they have thought it through and have done enough research to choose us specifically as their breeder. Joining a wait list secures your spot for a puppy from Nosam. However, we reserve the right to refund if we feel you are not a good fit. Please do research to ensure this is the right breed for you. We do not sell puppies to homes where they will be left in kennels, living apart from their families or chained up.
Nosam does not ship puppies. Puppy Buyer must pick up their puppy from Nosam. If a Puppy Buyer decides to ship
the puppy then we do not accept responsibility for any health issues aside from genetic problems covered in our contract. We are not responsible for arranging shipping, delivery to facility for shipping or etc. We will not allow puppies to be shipped via cargo. We have a private transporter that we can put you in touch with to arrange this but we are not responsible for delivery.
WHAT IS INCLUDED WITH YOUR NOSAM PUPPY?
HEALTH TESTED PARENTS
All of our dogs have been screened for at least hip dysplasia before being bred to ensure they are free and clear of OA. We are currently using PENNHIP to screen our breeding stock for Hip Dysplasia. OFA, UC Davis or Embark will be used for further testing. Each breed has various different requirements for testing. You can check the dog’s individual pages to see their results!
HEALTH WARRANTY Each puppy comes with a written health warranty and contract. Please read over the contract to obtain information on the full written guarantee. Those getting pets understand that pet puppies are pups priced with slight imperfections and we do not guarantee against cosmetics or slight defects that may not affect the well-being of the dog such as a overshot/undershot bites, hernias or other structural cosmetics issues that do not affect general long term health. By signing our contract you the risks involved in taking responsibility for a live animal.
All puppies are sold on non-breeding AKC LIMITED or Limited non breeding NAVHDA registration. This means you cannot breed your puppy & when you sign our contract you agree to not allow your puppy to be bred. We do NOT offer puppies with full registration. Please note that we have the option to choose weather a litter is AKC or NAVHDA registered.
A collar tag isn't enough. If your dog's collar breaks or its collar tag falls off or becomes illegible, a microchip permanently identifies your pet to help your pet get back to you if it is ever lost or stolen.
