Our Application Process
Thank you for your interest in Diablos Bully’s Kennel. Please fill out and send me the application. I will NOT consider anyone as a home without having a completed application! Once I have reviewed and approved it, I will ask for either a personal interview or a phone interview. This does NOT guarantee that I have a puppy or dog for you as it will depend on the size of the Litter, ratio of boys to girls, pet puppies versus show prospect puppies (which have priority), and if I feel I have a puppy/dog that meets your requirements.
Once a pregnancy has been confirmed, a deposit for $500.00 for a companion puppy is required in order to reserve a puppy.
The deposit will only be refundable if there isn’t a puppy available to place with you.
Please keep in mind reservations fill up quickly since we only have one to two litters a year.
Our Puppy Selection Process
From the time puppies are born, they are color coded with nail polish to keep track of who is who. The boys are painted on their butts and the girls between their shoulders. I send weekly pictures to my clients that have a reservation so they can see how they grow. The two most important things about getting a new puppy are the health and temperament of it; NOT the size, color, shape of head or any other cosmetic trait! All puppies are cute and beautiful, but each one has a distinct personality. It is my job as a breeder to match the personality of each puppy with the right client. I begin to evaluate the puppies between six and eight weeks old and do not make my final decision as to who is getting which puppy until after that. Any show prospects have priority over companion puppies and are selected first.
The deposit may be paid with a personal check, cash, or a bank check. All final payments must be made in cash or with a wire transfer made out to Jeanette Benson either on or before the day you pick up your new Diablos Am Staff. I do NOT accept personal checks for final payments: no dog will be allowed to leave here until the final payment has been received along with any shipping expenses if applicable (please see the paragraph below pertaining to shipping).
When you pick up your new Diablo puppy/dog, you will receive a packet containing the following:
AKC registration of said puppy or dog
Copy of puppy/dog’s five generation pedigree
Copies of Sire and Dam’s Registrations
Copies of Sire and Dam’s Health clearances
Pictures of Sire and Dam
Health certificate from a licensed veterinarian
Worming and De Parasiting Schedule
Tons of important information on raising a happy and healthy Amstaff.
Life time support from the breeder
