SHIBA INU PUPPY DEPOSITS ARE 30% OF THE TOTAL PRICE (NOT INCLUDING SHIPPING, IF SHIPPING IS NEEDED). DEPOSITS ARE PLACED VIA PAYPAL.
We wait until the puppies are 5 weeks to let those who have placed deposits pick out which puppy they want, because the full appearances & the temperaments of each puppy don't start to become apparent enough (for the sake of particular choosing) until the puppies are 5 weeks old.
Choosing/picking of puppies will be made in order deposits were received, and it will be via photos, videos, & our observations of the puppies' temperaments.
***Please also read our general policies @ the bottom of this page.

Onward Acres Farm is our family's private residence... it is NOT a public farm or kennel! If you are picking up your Shiba Inu puppy from us in Michigan (instead of shipping out of state), the transfer of the sold puppy to the buyer takes place at an agreed upon public location. This is for the bio-security, safety and privacy of our family, home & livestock. We provide plenty of honest photos of our beautiful setting here on our website so that anyone who buys a puppy from us can feel assured that their puppy comes from a top notch, clean setting.
OUR PUREBRED AKC REG. SHIBA INU PUPS DO NOT COME WITH A 'SMOKE & MIRRORS' CONTRACT FULL OF OBNOXIOUS REQUIREMENTS, NOR BOGUS GUARANTEES FROM US. OUR SHIBA INUS & GREAT PYRENEES GUARDIANS ARE MANAGED WITH OLD FASHIONED LOGICAL PURPOSE.
THEY ARE HARDY, HEALTHY AND HIGH QUALITY.
We can't sell our puppies with " 1 year year health guarantees". That is simply not possible to guarantee after the new owner has the puppy, period. Dogs can't stay healthy just because some useless paperwork said that they would. (DOGS ARE NOT APPLIANCES!). The only way a dog stays healthy is if the owner purposefully takes good care of them!
We have a lot of great health maintenance recommendations for folks who purchase one of our healthy gorgeous puppies. However, we're certainly not under the illusion that we can control the sold dog's life. Our dogs have all been raised to be healthy hearty farm dogs. Our Shiba Inu puppies come with appropriate shots, reg. papers & if being shipped, a vet health certificate. But once a puppy has left our care into the new owner's care, it is up to them to keep up & maintain the good health. ___________________________________________________
