These are the rules.... they will be amended frequently, depending on situations we may encounter.

Even if the Rules don't specifically mention something, this breeder reserves the absolute right to decide who gets an All Ears dog or puppy, no matter what.

If, after we ask many questions back and forth, I think your home is not the best placement I can find for this animal, I will not sell it to you. If this occurs after you have put a deposit down on an animal, even a particular animal, my veto right remains and your deposit will be returned to you.

However, if after after having given a deposit and a 24 hours cool off period you, the buyer decide not to complete the purchase, I will hold on to the deposit until I find another buyer. If the puppy ends up being sold for a lesser price for any reason, the return of the deposit will be reduced by the difference in the agreed upon purchase price and the final selling price.

THE RULES at All Ears PAPILLONS:

  1. Main applicant/buyer potential owner must be at least 18 years old.

  2. To demonstrate stability, we prefer that applicants have lived at their current address for at least a year.

  3. Potential buyers must have a yard that is fenced on all sides.

  4. We prefer to meet all members of the household the dog or puppy will be living in.

  5. The puppy, unless sold to a breeder, must be spayed/neutered by 8 months of age.
  6. A non-breeding contract must be agreed to and signed unless special arrangements have been agreed to.

  7. We do not sell "outdoor pets." If you currently have an "outdoor dog", your purchase will be denied.

  8. We will not place a puppy in a home where people are consistently absent from the home for long periods of time.

  9. We will not place a puppy in a home with children under the age of five. We encourage people with young children to consider getting a dog aged six months or older.

  10. We prefer not to sell two puppies (litter mates) at one time. If you would like to have siblings, we advise you to wait for a sibling from the next litter.

  11. We will not place a puppy with a family that is moving to a new house soon, having a new baby, dealing with an ailing elderly dog, or expecting some other major transitions in the near future.

  12. I will not sell any animals to pet owners or breeders who do not have the experience or knowledge to provide the animal(s) with a good life, sanitary living conditions and/or proper nutrition. 

  13. This list can and will be amended from time to time, without notice.

We hope that you appreciate our efforts to provide quality care to the dogs and puppies we may occasionally offer for sale.

If you contact us and don't address the above, I will send you this list of questions to answer:


Why a Papillon?
Do you have a gender preference, and why?
How many people in your household?
