Adoption P​rocess

Hello LK Families and potential LK Families!

Our waitlist procedures go as follows:

1. A family inquires via our submission form located on this website.


AFTER THOROUGHLY READING THROUGH OUR WEBSITE, including our informational page, pricing page, and our contract

In your submission, you MUST INCLUDE information about your home environment, daily schedule, how much research you have done on this cross/breed, especially their grooming needs, as well as, children and other pets in your home, and what you plan to do with your potential new family member while you are away from your home.


2. Submit your contract to our email.


Fill out the top personal information completely and legibly knowing this is the information we will use to register your puppy's microchip number.

Then fill out the information regarding generation, size and gender preferred.


Sign all areas except the very last spot that goes over you having picked up your puppy in person.

Scan the contract to our email [email protected]


3. Place EITHER a reservation fee or a PIF (paid in full).


The $500 (reservation fee is NON-refundable) to be added to our waitlist.

If a reservation fee is placed, the balance is due when you choose your puppy.

Information regarding how to pay will be supplied during the phone interview.


We do not accept PayPal or Venmo. WE DO ACCEPT Zelle, Apple Pay, Cash App, or Square which charges a 3% fee for the convenience of using a credit card.


Please see the pricing page for differences between a reservation and a PIF (with a discount).

Placing a PIF doesn't move you ahead of people on our waitlist nor does it give you any priority over other families.


4. THE HARDEST PART...WAITING...and watching for updates.


We will notify YOU when it's YOUR turn for choosing your puppy. We understand a family's excitement for their potential new family member, so as soon as there are updates to be had, we will send our announcements as posts on our Instagram, Facebook, and website.

The LK team will go through our waitlist when puppies are available of a certain size and generation to the families on that same size and generation waitlist. You may not be on multiple lists.

We will post birth announcements to our announcements page on our website within 24 hours of birth.

To view instant photos and videos you MUST follow our Instagram.

Moving forward we will be taking Sundays off completely to enjoy our families and give ourselves a bit of a break.

We thank you so much for enjoying our journey ad watching us in our day to day adventures and our pups!
