Things you should know about Rebel Retrievers

1.) All puppies of our puppies are sold with LIMITED AKC registration.  In some instances we will lift the Limited AKC after all health testing has been completed and the dog has passed.  

2.) The puppy (or dog) must be returned to us if you are ever unable to keep him/her.   

3.) We strongly recommend that puppies be raised exclusively on breeder-recommended products.  If you do not agree with this recommendation, we are probably not the right breeder for you.  Nutrition is extremely important to us.  

4.) We will NOT ship puppies or dogs.  Someone must pick up your puppy.  If you are physically unable to pick up your puppy, we have an In Flight Nanny we can recommend to you.   

5.) Our puppies go home at 8 weeks old.  In some cases, we may keep them longer if we feel they need extra time with us.

6.) We reserve the right to retain any number of our puppies from any litter, and to refuse sale to any customer, at any time, for any reason.

Puppies are sold to approved homes only.  Please start the process by adding your name to our mailing list.  When we have available puppies, you will be invited to fill out an application. You may stay on the waiting list as long as you like.  You may also unsubscribe from the list at any time.  

Applications will be accepted when puppies are available.  If your application is approved, you will be contacted and sent directions about how to reserve your puppy with a $200 deposit. Please do NOT send a deposit before this time. 

Deposits are non-refundable.  If, on puppy pick up day, you are not able to find a suitable puppy, your deposit may be transferred to a puppy from another litter within two years after deposit is placed.  Deposits may be paid via cash, Apple Pay or Venmo.

Deposit will be subtracted from the purchase price. The balance due for your puppy may be paid in cash, postal money order or cashier's check up until the day you pick up your puppy.  If you would like to pay with a personal check, it must be received at least two weeks prior to pick up day.  Illinois State Sales Tax of 6.25% will be added to the purchase price.   


Puppies will be picked in order of deposit.  ALL puppies picks are to be made between 42-49 days old.  All puppies not picked by 49 days old will be picked by the Breeder. 

Puppies will be picked up between 56-58 days old, unless Breeder requests puppy to stay a few days longer for health/training purposes. Contracts/Warranties will be signed by both breeder and buyer at the time of pick-up, and information packets will go home with the family.
