Puppy Adoption Guidelines
Due to the high volume of people contacting us in pursuit of purchasing one of our Ashstone Puppies, we utilize a reservation list. People on the reservation list always have priority, they will always get a phone call or email when a new litter is born. Normally our puppies are already reserved by the time their eyes are open (2 weeks old). If you are seriously interested in getting an Ashstone puppy, you need to get your name on 'the' list.
Havanese are our specialty and breeding dogs is our passion.
Step 1: Completing the online puppy buyer questionnaire is the first step in the process of acquiring a puppy from Ashstone Kennel but it does not guarantee you'll get a puppy from this or any future litter. While it's unlikely, the breeder reserves the right to refuse any placement at any time.
Step 2: APPROVED?
APPROVAL AND DEPOSIT: I will review applications usually within 72 hours of receipt. Applications are processed in the order they are received. If your home is a good fit, I'll notify you that you are approved. To be placed on our reservation list, you will need to fill out the deposit contract that I will provide and send a $500 non-refundable deposit. Your name will then be placed on 'the' list in the order your deposit was received.
Your $500 will be deducted off the final price of your puppy.
*** Your deposit is good for 24 months from the date the next litter is born if for any reason you change your mind and cancel on your puppy. You will be transferred to our waiting list until you notify us that you’re ready to choose in a future litter. ***
Step 3: Then the fun part of waiting begins.
We do update pictures every 2 weeks on our website and our last update is usually a video with his littermates.
Step 4: Shipping & Travelling
We offer shipping all over Canada. We use PetsGo. We've been working with this company for a few years now and they are Great! They take care of the delivery of our babies, with no stress and worries. They treat every puppy as though it was their own. They ensure your pet will be booked and checked in, to the best flights with the shortest transit time. Petsgo provide a number of different ways to get our puppies into their new homes. They work very hard to cater to our adopter’s busy schedules while always putting the health and safety of our puppies first. Pick Up, Hand Delivery and Air Travel.
Due to geographical distance or simply a busy schedule, most of our adopters prefer to have their puppy delivered. Patti at Petsgo understand what it takes to properly care for and protect our puppies during transit. We certainly appreciate her hard work and professionalism. Prices for NL starting at 300.00. For other destinations, please contact Petsgo for a price.
Delivery by Air
We do use air travel for adopters that are a long-distance away. All of our puppies have arrived safely to their new homes via air travel and we certainly would not use this type of service if it would potentially harm our babies.
Step 5: Final Payment
Final Payment is due usually 3 weeks prior to his ready to go date. This is to assure that the puppy will be adopted at the same times as his siblings.

Vaccinated and Wormed
Puppies will be examined, dewormed, and vaccinated prior to leaving. Make sure that you follow up with your own veterinarian, as puppies that don’t receive boosters at appropriate intervals are at risk of contracting life-threatening illnesses.
Ready to go Home
Puppies will go to their new homes between 10 - 12 weeks of age.
We can also ship your puppy all over Canada.
Breeding is not an exact science, and problems can surface in the best of lines. We offer a health guarantee of 2 years on all our puppies. Don’t be shy about asking for references from others who have purchased dogs from us on our "Ashstone Havanese" Facebook group.
