Puppy Deposit Policy






Deposits for all puppies is $500.00. It is a nonrefundable deposit to hold a selection spot. We accept cash/money order/credit card/debit card/checks (the acceptance or refusal of all personal checks is the decision of Von der haus Gill staff) or on-line Pay Pal. Pick order in all litters is determined by deposit order, by sex, by litter. Von der haus Gill reserves the right to take first pick (males) or (females) in any or all litters. All clients will be advised if we are exercising that option at the time of their deposit.  All deposit are NONREFUNDABLE for any reason and will be deposited upon receipt by Von der haus Gill. Any returned checks will be charged a $35.00 fee, plus $50.00 returned fee from our bank and will not be reprocessed. A new Cashiers Check will be required!  No pick spots are guaranteed until a check actually clears all banks involved. Not from date written. All puppies will be named for registration purposes by Von der haus Gill based on litter "letter". All puppies come with full registration papers.


Any and all missed appointments (failure to show up for a scheduled appointment) by clients is subject to a missed appointment fee. This fee is $100.00 which will be added onto the final purchase price of a puppy.


Any failure to show up for a scheduled puppy pickup appointment will result in the total deposit fee being forfeited.  Clients may or may not receive any written notification of this policy or this forfeiture action.  Appointments may be rescheduled at our convenience prior to the original scheduled time.


If a female would not have enough or any pups of a sex that a client has a deposit for the client may move to another litter or another breeding of the two. We do not bump clients from pick spots for someone to move to that pick spot or better in another litter. The client moving litters falls in the pick order where there is openings at that time. No moves are allowed or refunds given for puppy coat colors, hair length, looks, drive, or size. These are all factors outside our control. If a client chooses to not take a puppy that is available, they will forfeit their entire deposit.


If at any time a refund would be given it is returned in a form a check only.  This refund is minus any bank charges or credit card company charges, and or any Pay Pal fees incurred by Von der haus Gill German Shepherds from the original deposit.



Visitation is allowed with an appointment. Females may be seem unless they have puppies at that time. No litters from birth to weaning age can be seen by clients. We try to provide pictures as the puppies grow as often as our schedule allows. No set number of pictures are guaranteed. We also provide live viewing via Internet for short period of times when available. These are limited sessions and there is no guarantee of any being provided during a litter. The decision of time of day, day of the week, or frequency is solely the decision of Von der haus Gill. We also do try to assist clients select the right puppy based on their plans.
