we do! We are very proud of our Chihuahua puppies and our reputation.
We make every attempt to guarantee our puppies are genetically
sound and healthy. We want you to go home with a healthy, problem
free puppy just as much as you do. The majority of the information
you read here is included in my written health guarantee that
the buyer will be provided with at the time of purchase.
The customer is given a written purchase agreement which
allows them 14 days in which to have the puppy checked by a licensed
veterinarian, and is urged to do so. In the event that a genetic
or physical problem is found that makes the puppy a poor health
risk, with the exception of hypoglycemia, we will provide
the buyer with a healthy replacement puppy or a cash refund if
another puppy is not available, (Your Choice). If a problem is
found, you the buyer must notify me within the above stated time
period. Written evidence of any disorder would need to be supplied
from your Veterinarian at once along with his address and phone
number. It is at the buyers expense that the puppy be returned
to us along with their registration papers and any medical evidence.
In addition, if the buyer is purchasing a puppy that is extremely
small in size for his /her age, I will explain to the buyer the
risk involved with hypoglycemia (low glucose). I will explain
the precautions that should be taken to avoid this situation,
as well as the treatment the puppy should receive immediately
if any symptoms should occur. Hypoglycemia is not the result of
a deformity, poor quality puppy, or poor breeding program but
a condition that sometimes occurs not only in Chihuahuas, but
many other toy breeds of very petite size and weights. This is
normally associated with stress that comes from changing
familiar environments or skipping meals. This condition is only
temporary; the puppy is generally out of danger as soon as they
become comfortable and adjust in their new home.
I assure the buyer that I am a concerned, compassionate breeder
and will offer any help or advice before and/or after the purchase
of your new puppy. However, I do not know the full environment
the puppy is entering into, so therefore I take no responsibility
for any sickness, veterinary fees, medical expenses, or death
related issues associated to Hypoglycemia.
I try to treat people as fairly as I would like to be treated.
I also want them to be prepared when purchasing a puppy from the
smallest breed in the world, so please take these words seriously
if your truly want to do what's best for your new puppy. Changing
environments is the most critical time for them. Remember as a
kid, how afraid you felt the first time your mom left you with
a complete stranger, perhaps a new babysitter? Or how about the
first time you got lost in a department store? Young puppies feel
the same way and all the reassuring words you can offer them will
help their fears of abandonment soon fade away.

delight in the Lord, and he will give you your heart's desires." Psalms 37:4
you decide to purchase one of our Kountrytymes Kids, you
will receive the puppies registration papers, a written health
guarantee and receipt of final purchase. You will receive a shot
and worming record of what your puppy has received and what inoculations
he or she is due for to carry to your local veterinarian. You
will be given a puppy care kit along with a sample bag of food
and free coupon for the purchase of your next bag, to get you
started on their current eating habits. I will also provide you
with several informational sheets on how to care for a tiny Chihuahua
puppy. I advise everyone in your family that will have contact
with your new puppy to carefully read each and every sheet, no
matter if you have owned a Chihuahua before or not. Theres
no doubt that you will supply your puppy with plenty of love and
affection, but learning all you can about the breed you own will
prove beneficial to you.
of our pups are based on an average of $700.00 to $900.00, depending
on their quality and size. Puppies that we suspect to have
a high show potential or are exceptionally small in size
are priced accordingly. The very tiny pups normally
have to stay with us longer depending on how well they are progressing
without mom feeding them. Therefore prices may increase due to
the additional vaccinations, wormers and feed that will need to
be supplied. "These are the pups many people like to label
as "Teacup Chihuahuas." We prefer
to call them what they are, Very Tiny Chihuahuas!
Please pay special attention to the title TEACUP MYTHS
found on the INFORMATION page. Many times we
have pups that are so tiny it's scary! These are the ones
that stay with us longer so that ever precaution may be taken
to assure our new owners go home with a healthy puppy. We
realize that waiting for your new puppy can be torment but
to benefit your best interest and to further assure the health
and well being of our pups, we will keep them as long as we feel
necessary before allowing them to make that initial move
into their new homes.
We have intentionally repeated some of the text in the pages
of our site in hopes of getting our point across. We
realize that some people prefer to look at the pictures as opposed
to reading the text. Thanks for taking the time to do both!
God Bless You And May All Your Plans Bring Forth Success.

the Lord... " plans to give you hope and a future." Jeremiah 29:11
It is not
uncommon to start accepting deposits on pups that have not yet
been born. I normally accept them according to how many breedings
we have coming up in the near future. Usually it's the best
way to guarantee a puppy from our upcoming litters, especially
if you have a specific color, sex or size in mind. Often we
have people that have already been waiting patiently for their
own special pup and I always honor them first.
A non refundable deposit of $100.00 is required to reserve or
hold a puppy. I only accept money orders or cashier's checks,
it's nothing personal I have just learned the hard way in the
past. Your deposit will go towards your purchase price. The remaining
balance of the puppy is due when you take over ownership
or at the actual time of delivery. Although the cost of all
delivery fees must be paid in full at least one week prior to
the delivery date. I will supply you with a hand written
receipt by e-mail or regular mail for your records.
In the unusual event that a health problem is found with your
puppy prior to him/her going to their new home, you would be entitled
to a full refund of all delivery fees along with
your full puppy deposit or you may choose another puppy of
equal value, if one is available, (Your Choice).
I realize most people who are looking for that special puppy do
so by the internet and dealing with a complete stranger with so
many miles in between can be a little scary. You are more
than welcome to come by in person, but for those of you who are
unable to do so I have tried to include as much information about
the Chihuahua breed as well as myself and how we normally do things
here at Kountrytyme's Chihuahuas. I try to be as fair with
people as I would like them to be with me. I do ask that you give
me a call so that I may personally speak with you concerning exactly
what you are looking for in a puppy. This helps out tremendously
in matching you up with the perfect puppy for your family.

As I stated
before, I grew up with Chihuahuas, they have always been a part
of my life. Its wonderful when a child and a Chihuahua pup
can become best friends. As I was growing up I had several best
friends such as Skippy and Buttons, I will never forget them,
I still have some of their favorite toys.
Parents must teach their children the proper way to handle a small
Chihuahua so that he or she feels secure in their (two) arms.
Chihuahuas do not like to be carried with one hand and dangled
from a childs arm.
Teach your child also to play with young puppies on the floor
to reduce the risk of them falling from furniture. It does not
take a very long fall to snap a small puppys leg into. Encourage
your child to let the puppy have adequate naptime. Young puppies
sleep 75% of the time, they would not do this if their little
bodies did not tell them they needed to. Over exertion of a small
Chihuahua can cause low blood sugar to occur. Teach children to
be careful, responsible new best friends with their new puppy
and they will have an unforgettable friend for life.
But Not By Air, (Unless You Are Flying With Your Puppy).
We want you to receive your puppy in tip top health, not frightened
and nervous. If there is one thing that can cause stress in a
young puppy, it’s being air born. The move itself is enough
for them to endure. If a puppy is shipped in the cargo section
of an airplane and suffers from low blood sugar as a result of
their uncomfortable surroundings, who would know?
I am not judging or faulting other breeders who are willing to
do so, but we do not. We have other resources of transferring
your puppy to you safely that is no more costly to you than flying.
Please read about hypoglycemia (found on the information page).
Transferring Your Puppy To You:
Our delivery system is very simple, we offer short distance deliveries. How
this works is, we will research a meeting destination convenient
for both parties, then send you the address and driving directions
that shows how far and how long it will take both of us. You may
also enter the address on map quest yourself. Keep in mind that
you are always welcome to come by in person and pick up your puppy.
Deliveries fees are due at least one week prior
to the prearranged delivery date. This is to assure that you will
be there to pick up your puppy, and no wasted trips are made.
The remaining balance of the puppy can be made to (your delivery
person) the person who is meeting with you, normally our family.
The cost of delivery fees are based upon the distance we travel
to meet you. Usually we ask that you meet us half way. The closer
you are able to drive towards us, the less expensive the delivery
Before you venture out to meet with a complete stranger on the
highways I will supply you with a photo of the person who is delivering
your puppy, along with the make, color and license plates
number of the vehicle they will be driving. Along with their
cell number incase you may need to contact them. They will bring
along all of the necessary paper work such as your purchase
agreement, registration papers, and receipt for final purchase.
They will also have your puppy starter kit to help get you started
on your puppy's current eating habits.
We have been using this method of transfer for a long time and
everyone seems to be very pleased with it. We feel it is much
safer because we know where our pups are at all times and their
travel conditions. Another advantage to this method is there
are no delayed flights to worry about. Most of our customers prefer
to drive as far as possible themselves to lower the cost. Some
prefer to get a round trip flight and fly back with their puppy
(Crated Under Their Seat). This is sometimes just as easy and
cost efficient. If you choose to fly back with your puppy, arrangements
need to be made with me in advance in order for me to have all
the necessary paper work and health certificates prepared. Health
certificates are only honored by airlines for up to ten days.
Usually you will have the pleasure of meeting my dad when the
time arrives to pick up your puppy. He is retired and has
more time to make day trips. He's very reliable and is normally
always early when it comes to meeting the new owners for deliveries.
Be prepared to smile because he always takes along his camera
so that I may see the new owners of our babies. Another of
our special delivery people that may be meeting with you is my
husband. He's just as prompt as my dad.
On the Road Again!
have other special drivers such as the Deacon of our Church that
are very familiar with our delivery methods in the event
that my dad or husband are unavailable and it is inconvenient
for you to change your plans. He is always willing to step in
to make sure you get your puppy as scheduled. Generally the cost
for a trip that consist of 8 hours both ways is $200.00, less
for shorter distances, more for longer ones. This is as close
as we can come from our hands to yours. We hope you agree with
our transfer methods and we will do our best to comply with all
of your transfer needs.
