What is required to purchase a Highland Haven Puppy?

We put our puppies’ welfare first, so we have a few requirements to help ensure our dogs go to loving homes…!

  • You must own your home. Why? Dogs who live with people who rent have a much higher chance of being re-homed due to rental restrictions on pets.
  • We do not sell to those who live in cities and/or apartments. Why? We find Aussies do not thrive fully when living in cities/apartments even in homes of diligent owners.
  • We do not sell to families who have children under the age of five. Why? Aussies are sensitive dogs. They will love their own children but may find the energy of your children’s friends stressful.
  • We do not ship. You must be able to pick up your puppy in person on go-home day.
  • We reserve the right to refuse to sell our dogs to anyone for any reason we find valid. Why? We love our puppies like family!
