FAQS

What do I receive with my new puppy?

At Sonshine Acres we do our best to provide new puppy owners with a healthy puppy. As part of this commitment all puppies are accompanied by a 30-day health guarantee. Also included is the Certificate of Veterinarian Exam, Health record documenting all vaccines and dewormers, Purina ProPlan Starter Kit and registration form. The puppy is microchipped and you will receive  microchip registry  information.

CVI (Certificate of Veterinarian Exam)

All puppies have their first veterinarian exam at 7-8 weeks of age and every 30 days thereafter as they wait to become your new furry friend. You will receive a copy of the certificate stating the puppy’s name, and age at the time of the exam and any notations of the veterinarian.

Please Note: out-of-state transactions require additional vet paperwork and often require a few days to get in place. For that paperwork we need your full name address, and phone number as well as the date you will be taking your new friend home.

Vaccine + Deworming Schedule

By eight weeks puppies have received the first two doses of Neo Par + Neo Vac Da2. the first Bordatella vaccine as well as our full spectrum deworming protocol. We continue building on the initial does and keep them current on all vaccines + dewormers until the day they leave.

You will receive a record of all vaccines, medications, and dewormers, Please take this along to your veterinarian. There are many options for vaccine protocols and parasite control. Your veterinarian can assist you with setting up a protocol for you and your new furry friend.

Purina Pro Plan Puppy Food

Purina Pro Plan chicken and rice puppy food blend is a highly digestible formula full of antioxidants, DHA, calcium, and high-quality proteins. In order to give our puppies the essential, nutritional building blocks for healthy growth and development we introduce them to Purina Pro Plan chicken + rice puppy food around 4 weeks of age. They are gradually weaned onto puppy food between 5-7 weeks of age. Because young puppies need lots of nutrition we choose to let them have access to their food 24/7. 

Micro Chips

All puppies are microchipped and can be registered with the national microchip registry (NMR). You will need to register the microchip for ID to become active.

Crate and Potty Training

We do not offer any potty training. Most puppies have been exposed to the crate, usually very briefly. The following article, House Breaking Hints provides many helpful informative tips.

Reservation Policy

Puppy must be paid in full before leaving. Payment can be made via PayPal, Cash, or any other arrangement with the seller.

Shipping Policies

 We enjoy meeting our puppies’ prospective families and prefer if you visit and personally meet your new furry friend if possible.

Health Guarantee & Sales Agreement

Thank you for choosing us to raise your new furry friend! We have endeavored to provide all age-appropriate vaccines, dewormers, and parasite treatment.

This dog is sold with a 30-day health guarantee, that it is free of any contagious or infectious diseases, clinical illness, parasitic infestation, congenital or hereditary defects, or condition that would render it unfit for purchase for 30 days from the date of sale.

If a contagious or infectious disease or congenital or hereditary defect is diagnosed within the guaranteed period (30 days after the purchase date) the purchaser must notify the seller within 2 business days of the vet examination. Purchaser must provide the seller a receipt of the veterinarian exam within 7 business days of the purchase date. To have a valid claim, the purchaser must also provide the seller with a statement from the veterinarian that diagnosed the condition of the dog which rendered it unfit for purchase as a pet. If the claim is valid, the purchaser would then have these options:

  1. Return the dog for a full refund of the purchased price, not including any sales tax.
  2. Return the dog in exchange for a replacement dog of equal value, of the purchaser’s choice, if there is one available.
  3. If additional veterinarian expenses are needed, it is to be at the purchaser’s expense.


The seller assumes no responsibility for this dog after it leaves the premises. Including landlord’s disapproval, disagreement with family, allergic reactions to animals of the purchaser or other household members, or that the dog is no longer desired. The seller also claims no responsibility for any injuries or illness that was most likely contracted subsequently after the date of purchase. In the event that you are no longer able to care for this dog, we can assist you in finding the dog a new home. No refunds will be issued.

Tips for the first few days:

  • Most puppies transition well with the exception of loneliness at bedtime or when confined in their crate
    or pen, giving them a blanket or stuffed animal to cuddle with can help alleviate some of this.
  • We have provided some of the food they’ve been eating, mix this with the food you have to help them
    transition more easily. If your puppy is reluctant to eat you can try yogurt, either plain or as a top-dress to
    their food. Other options would include cooked chicken, or canned dog/ puppy food.

Thanks again and best wishes!
