Poodle Owners - please share your puppy buying experiences with us with our new visitors! The Testimonial Section of the website allows you to upload your Feedback directly onto the website, but does not allow photos.
Got photos to share? The Feedback Section allows for both photos and longer emails/letters - but you need to email them to me first, for me to upload onto the website for you.
Visitors be sure to visit both pages to see what our Puppy Owners have to say and see pics of the poodle kids at their new homes...
Love what you see but the time is not right, or your preferred baby just got snapped up by someone else???
Subscribe to our website - this will put you on my update list for new litters, announcements and the occasional special sale or price reduction for that "last pup from a litter" that is not mentioned on the website!
No strings attached, your information will not be sold, when you are no longer looking - simply unsubscribe.
How much deposit is required to reserve a pup?
Deposit is usually 50% of the purchase price and are generally not refundable unless something is wrong with the pup. Please go to the Deposit Page to have a look at a sample contract and to familiarize yourself with it before reserving a pup!
There is a pup on your website that says "Pending". What does that mean - is it sold?
Pups listings that say "Pending" or "On Hold" usually have either a deposit in the mail [snail mail] and I will need to make time allowance for that payment to reach me, or I have a definite pick-up scheduled within the next few days without a deposit. About 90% of the time, that pup will be reserved or sold within a few days, but every once in a while there will be a no-show or cancellation. Feel free to ask or request an update on this pup to double check on availability. Pups that say "Reserved" have a deposit received and are no longer available - and no - I won't sell a pup that has a deposit to another person, even if you offer me extra money for it.
Do you take checks?
Sorry no more personal or bank checks. Cash only at time of pick-up for the remainder of your balance or the full purchase price for a pup ready to go. Deposits and Installment Payments may be made via Paypal, Mobile Phone Paypal, US Postal Money Orders, NetSpend and Only1 Reload Packs, as well as Moneygram [Walmart] or Western Union. For more detailed info on payments, pls go to the Payment Page.
Can I make several smaller payments instead of one or two big ones?
Payment Plans are generally available on pups under 5 weeks of age - the amounts and frequency of payments depend on the purchase price and the age of the pup. If you want to do this, the sooner you reserve your pup, the more time you will have for smaller installments! If you need more time than that, ask me about upcoming or planned litters - I can give you an idea when we have new babies and you can make as many small payments in advance that you are comfortable with, and then choose from a new litter once they arrive.
Pick-Up, Delivery or Meeting, Shipping.
Use this zipcode to pull up directions to Lyons GA, just outside of Vidalia . If you are majorly from out of the area or out of state and are driving to pick up, I will gladly offer as usual to meet you along the I 16, I 95 or I 75 corridor = halfways or oneway up to 100 miles for me. I need you to work with me on scheduling though, as I work most weekends. During the week is always easier for me, as I can set my own schedule then. I have an entire page devoted to this information - please click here for more info!
Are your puppies AKC registered?
Lately I get this question quite often - so I rewrote that section on my website and made a separate page for it - look for the answers here.
For straight pick-ups or final payments coupled with a personal pick-up, I prefer cash. Easy peasy and uncomplicated!
For deposits and installment/payment plans, we offer the following payment arrangements:
The easiest and least complicated [and most expensive] way to accomplish this is via Paypal - through your linked account or via Debit or Credit Cards; this also allows me to send you a reminder for your installment payments if we have agreed upon this.
We also accept Paypal Mobile Phone Payments.
Please note that there is a 3% Surcharge on the amount for covering some of the transaction fees I experience when I accept Paypal for your convenience. In order to provide affordable prices for my pups, I can no longer afford to eat the processing fees with each sale and will pass part of them on to you for your convenvience. Use the following email address to process your paypal payments: firstname.lastname@example.org
An alternative requiring a bit of legwork and similar in cost to Paypal [fees for the money order[s] and certified shipping] is a US Postal Money Order.
Please be sure to send payments in the mail certified with a signature receipt required and a tracking number, so we can both keep track on any delayed payments that may be lost in the mail. Communication is a must if you are choosing to go this way, so I know to keep an eye out for my mailman.
Be sure to make your Money Order out to me personally and mail to the following address:
Sabine Greene; 301 Victory Drive Lyons, GA 30436
US Postal Money Orders are the only type of Money Order I accept!!!
Not Western Union Money Orders, Not Convenience Store Money Orders, Not Walmart Money Orders! USPS MO's only!
I just found out the hard way [actually it was a refresher course, LOL - I already knew that but had forgotten] - that Western Union does not stand behind their name any more. Western Union money orders command a 30 day hold with most banks, plus Western Union Sales locations are not required to cash them, short of depositing them in my bank and waiting for a month - there is no other way for me to cash them, other than doing a 160+ mile roundtrip and paying a hefty 3-5% check cashing fee [local check cashing places won't touch those things either!]
Please do not send me any of these - I will return them and they will tie up your funds for 30+ days in your own account before you can reaccess them!!!
For all of you that are uncomfortable with financial transactions in the mail or online, an additional option we now offer are Reload Packs for Debit Cards.
This options allows for the lowest fee transactions [usually around $4-5], and we can do this over the phone [or via email] - basically instantly, once you have purchased the reload pack. It will also allow you to prepurchase your installments and safely set aside until your payment becomes due.
I am accepting Netspend Reload Packs
These are available most everywhere you can purchase store, restaurant, and Visa/MC gift cards and debit cards as well as at convenience stores and gas stations. For more info about this company - click here! The transaction fee is $3.95 and you can load up to $500 on one Reload Pack.
If you are using reload packs, please be sure to use onely this one - I have no way of using whatever else is out there on the market at this time. Click on the underlined sections to go their website to learn more about this. If needs be - print yourself the top of this page and take it to the store with you. If you cannot locate these in the stores, ask a customer service rep to help you. I'm known to stand right in front of these hanging on the display and not see them, LOL. A knowledgeable CSR will be able to help you.
