Step One is answering the below simple questionnaire about the kind of puppy you want and the type of home you live in for quick pre-application introduction.
Step Two is a quick information email with basic information. We’ll answer any questions by email, Messenger, call or texting.
Step Three, after determining that a Doberman Birkline could be a fit, you’ll fill out an application.
Step Four is breeder vetting. You may need to send a copy of your driver’s license (or other valid US ID) for breeder vetting, via a simple criminal background check.
The Kennel Birkline is deeply committed to ensuring the safety and lifetime well-being of our puppies. Having had close a call with selling to an animal abuser in the recent past, we now run background checks on our perspective clients.
We bear the cost of the background check and we are ONLY concerned with animal abuse, negligence or cruelty, or violent crime. This will not affect your credit and we are unconcerned about other types of crime; only the kind of crime that might severely affect the life of a Birkline Doberman. Abuse towards the breeder will result in revocation of approval without the return of deposit funds.
Step Five is completing the deposit contract.
Step Six is putting down 25% of the adoption fee as a deposit, usually $812.50, cash, Zelle, Debit, Credit, Venmo, or via cryptocurrency. We do not accept PayPal.
Step Seven is the assignment/selection of the puppies, usually during the seventh week of their lives.
Step Eight is final contract execution.
Step Nine is settling the remaining balance, paid by cash, Zelle, Debit, Credit, Venmo, or via cryptocurrency. We do not accept PayPal.
Step Ten is the pick up or transfer of your puppy.
***Please note the transfer is an additional $550-$800 USD for the contiguous United States. (Usually $550-$650 with TLC Flight Nanny)
***The Kennel Birkline does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, age, gender, or religion.
***The Kennel Birkline reserves the right to refuse sale to anyone.
