Deposits and Payment:

If you have found the right Tiny Paw pup for you, then please e-mail us with your contact info and the puppy you are interested in. Do not send money, without confirming that your perfect Yorkie or Maltese is still available! After corresponding, we will let you know what form of payments we accept. We try our best to contact you as soon as possible! We don’t mind talking to those with serious inquiries and all of our new puppy owners. Our families do come first though and we can’t stop everything for every phone call, so please leave a message if we are unavailable. (Please understand that we all have 3 to 5 children. We often have to do business before the kids wake in the morning, during school or nap time and once they?re off to bed. And somewhere in all this, we try to give our husbands some time too!)

A $100 deposit is required to reserve most puppies. To hold a teacup pup, it will be $500. The full amount is required by the time the puppy is 8 weeks of age or within one week if the puppy is older than 8 weeks. If the full amount is not received by then we will make every effort to contact you, otherwise the reservation will be canceled and the puppy may be offered to another buyer. All deposits are non-refundable.


We are in Northern California, so we like to meet up with our wonderful California clientele. We also ship to almost anywhere in the continental U.S. from the Sacramento International Airport. Shipping usually costs $265 depending on the size of the puppy and that includes airfare, his shipping crate that you’ll keep, and his Interstate Health Certificate. Please keep in mind that everything is expensive in California! We do not make profit off of our shipping cost. We will pass our savings along if you get two pups at the same time or if we get a deal on airfare.

Please remember that buying a puppy is making a commitment to care for its’ entire life, which can possibly be the next 15 years!
