Frequently Asked Questions

- All of our puppies are sold as pets not to be used for breeding and will go home with a spay/neuter contract. We do not register litters with the AKC that will be sold as pets. If you would like to participate in AKC events outside of confirmation, please reach out directly for info on limited registration. 

- Standard coated puppies raised in our home are $3000.

- Fluffy coated puppies are $3500.

- We no longer removed dewclaws on puppies. 

- All puppies go to our vet for an 8-week puppy exam and are deemed healthy by our vet before leaving our care.

- Final payment for all Pepper Tree puppies must be made in the form of a cashier's check from a major bank or credit union written out to Becca Cardenas. 

- Final payments for co-owned litter or litters owned by friends of Pepper Tree must be made in cash only. 

- Once a puppy application is approved, we charge a $100 non-refundable payment to be added to our waitlist. This payment does not act as a deposit and does not go towards the final purchase price of the puppy. 

- Our current waitlist for red standard coated, tri standard coated and red fluffy coated puppies is 6-18 months. Our waitlist for red-headed tri fluffy coated puppies is 10-18 months.

- WE DO NOT allow in-home visits from people/families who we do not personally know. We do not have a facility. Our puppies are raised in our home. The same home we raise our children in. Not only does allowing unknown people off of the internet to come into our home put our dogs/puppies at risk, it also puts our family at risk. Please respect this and do not ask to come view dogs/puppies before a litter is 8-10 weeks old, has been cleared by our vet, and is ready to go home. 

- We are often at local corgi events and also bring our corgis all over town with us. If you would like to meet one of our dogs or myself in person, I am more than happy to meet you at an event we will already be attending. We do not schedule individual meet-ups with potential clients. We will be at most of the SoCal Corgi beach day events throughout 2018.

- Please understand that I am a busy homeschool mom raising some pretty awesome puppy-handling kids. My kids, their schooling, and our family come before puppy appointments and potential clients. If at any time I feel as though a potential client is overbearing, demanding, or not considerate of our family and my priorities,  your application will be denied.  

- First right of refusal deposits of $100 are taken to hold a puppy until you are able to meet him/her in person after they are 8 weeks old, weaned from their mom, and have been cleared by our vet at their puppy exam. Every litter has a designated puppy meet-up/pick-up date. Deposits hold a puppy until this date. We do not hold puppies past their pick-up date unless it has been discussed and agreed upon ahead of time. Deposits are NON-refundable.

- We do not ship our puppies cargo but will meet families at the San Diego airport with their puppy. Puppies must fly in-cabin with their new owner. We charge $100 for airport drop-offs.?

- We live outside San Diego in an area where cell phone service isn't great. I am more than happy to schedule a phone appointment once your puppy application is approved. 619-471-5183 Feel free to shoot me a text anytime! I'm happy to answer your questions.

- We love each and every one of our puppies. Whether they are raised in our home or in the home of one of our puppy-raising partners, it is very important to us that our puppies end up in the best homes possible.
