PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU UNDERSTAND AND ARE FULLY AWARE OF THE "ADOPTION FEE" for an AKK and the breeders PROCESS" before sending them a request for a questionnaire. And, remember every breeder is different. Just because the Alakkawa breeders conduct their business the way they do, does not mean other breeders should do the same.
The questionnaire is NOT located anywhere on this website.
The breeder's ask everyone to read this website so they fully understand this breed, their process, expectations of ownership, etc.
THE "ADOPTION FEE" INFORMATION IS LISTED ON THE READ ALL ABOUT IT page
and the adoption fee does NOT include shipping. However, the breeders have also placed adoption fees below.
ALSO, PLEASE BE AWARE THE QUESTIONNAIRE IS VERY EXTENSIVE.
THE BREEDERS RECEIVE NUMEROUS EMAILS ON A REGULAR BASIS AND MANY INTERESTED PERSONS REQUEST A QUESTIONNAIRE BEFORE THEY HAVE RESEARCHED THIS BREED, THE BREEDER'S PROCESS and EXPECTATIONS, and the ADOPTION FEE.
IF YOUR SEARCH FOR AN ALASKAN KLEE KAI IS BASED ON PRICING ALONE, PLEASE BE AWARE THE AKK ARE NOT "PET SMART PUPPIES," "PET STORE PUPPIES" OR "COUNTY POUND PUPPIES."
THE ALASKAN KLEE KAI ARE EXPENSIVE ...
MANY QUESTIONS ARE ANSWERED ON THIS WEBSITE. PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE READ THIS WEBSITE.
ALAKKAWA KENNELS PREFERS NOT TO WASTE YOUR TIME. THEREFORE, PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU READ THIS WEBSITE AS IT IS VERY INFORMATIVE AND PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU UNDERSTAND THE PROCESS OF ADOPTING AN ALASKAN KLEE KAI FROM ALAKKAWA KENNELS BEFORE SENDING THE BREEDER'S A REQUEST FOR A QUESTIONNAIRE.
Also, please be advised if you have your heart set on eye color or even coat color, you need to be aware Alakkawa Kennels may never have blue-eyed babies and yet as we all should know, there is no guarantee for coat color just as their no guarantee what color your child's hair will be when he/she is in adulthood.
The breeders have only had one double blue eyed AKK because they bred their female to a CHAMPION, bi-eyed, red-factored male, and they also had one bi-eyed female and one double brown eyed female.
ALAKKAWA KENNELS WAIT LIST
The breeders are now placing interested parties on a wait list for future litters. In order to be placed on the Alakkawa wait list, an interested party will need to first be approved to adopt an Alakkawa puppy.
Once a litter is born and if the interested party is still interested after this transpires, then the interested party will be evaluated against the puppy of their choosing and once a mutual agreement is made, then the approved family will be asked to send a $500.00 adoption holding fee to 'hold' a puppy for them. This $500 fee is NOT the only fee a person can expect to pay for an Alakkawa puppy.
Alaskan Klee Kai are in the range of $1,500.00 to sometimes over $5,000.00.
Expect to pay between the "range" of $1,500.00, one thousand, five hundred dollars
$5,000.00, five thousand dollars
for an Alaskan Klee Kai...
Alakkawa Kennels adoption fee is $2,700.00
The breeders adoption fee is non-negotiable. The breeders appreciate the fees other breeders place on their own AKK, and they wish to remain in the 'near' middle range of other breeders throughout the United States. However, the breeders will not come down on their adoption fee because an interested person did not plan to spend x number of dollars or because another breeder has a lesser adoption fee.
If you live outside of the United States, the breeders WILL NOT SHIP an AKK overseas.
The breeders prefer not to ship any AKK to another location within the United States; however, the breeder's will agree to allow a puppy to fly in the cabin of a plane with his/her new owner providing the new owner flies to Georgia to retrieve the puppy. The cost for a ticket is not much different as opposed to flying a puppy in cargo.
ADOPTION HOLDING FEE
There is a minimum $500.00 “adoption holding fee” if you are approved to adopt an Alaskan Klee Kai from Alakkawa Kennels. The adoption holding fee will hold your puppy if you are approved and this fee will go toward the final adoption fee of the AKK. The adoption holding fee allows Alakkawa Kennels to turn other interested parties away and hold your puppy for you. However, should you change your mind before you are scheduled to pick up your puppy and Alakkawa Kennels has already received your $500.00 adoption holding fee, Alakkawa Kennels will only reimburse a $350.00 total fee. Please understand Alakkawa Kennels policy on this issue.
THE BREEDERS TRUST
Alakkawa Kennels has put a great deal of trust and faith in your interest and they will have to start the process entirely over again with another interested party (should you change your mind on adopting a puppy), and this takes a great deal of their time for their efforts in checking references, spending time sending you emails/pictures, answering your questions, etc. The breeders have held a puppy for you in good faith, trusted you are interested in adopting, and they have turned other families away. Should this happen, the breeders need to start the process over. Again, a considerable amount of time is spent on their part once you contact them and start the process.
A PART OF THE ALAKKAWA FAMILY
If you are approved to adopt an Alaskan Klee Kai from Alakkawa Kennels, you need to know you will become a member of Alakkawa Kennels family and the breeders will welcome you into their family wholeheartedly! Should you become a member of the Alakkawa family, then the breeder's will look forward to you so sending them updates on your new family member. The breeders hope to be contacted by you for any questions or concerns you may have about your new puppy.
SHARING OF PHOTOGRAPHS IS A REQUIREMENT
Sharing of photographs is a requirement of all those who adopt an AKK from Alakkawa Kennels. Photographs should be sent (via email only) directly to the breeder every month for the first year of the puppy’s life, and every three months thereafter, as the breeders are very interested in seeing the developmental stages and learning how their AKK is doing. (Facebook photographs are not the only acceptable means of the breeders seeing a photograph of their former puppy, nor are tagged photographs of the breeders on Facebook. However, you may do so if you wish, but you will need to also send a digital photograph to the breeders email address that will be provided to you in the contracts).
UPDATE THE BREEDERS AT ALAKKAWA KENNELS
The breeders must be updated periodically. If you cannot agree to assist in this process, maybe the breeders at Alakkawa Kennels are not the right breeders for you. Please understand, the breeders set very high standards with those who are interested in adopting an AKK from Alakkawa Kennels and they need to trust you will comply with this simple request before they consider moving forward in the process.
CHANGE YOUR MIND?
If, for any reason, to include and not limited to, the adopting party changes their mind and wishes to return their AKK to Alakkawa Kennels due to unforeseen circumstances of financial hardships, and/or because the adopting party cannot afford vaccinations, and the entire adoption fee has been paid to the Alakkawa Kennels, and/or the adopting party already has an adopted puppy in the adopted parties possession, and/or the lifestyle changes of the adopting party, and for any other reason not listed here, then the breeders at Alakkawa Kennels have a right to determine if they will reimburse all monies paid to date, providing the adopting party is not in default of any Alakkawa Kennels Contracts. Alakkawa Kennels also requires that those who change their mind provide to the breeders the following:
A typed formal letter, in one paragraph, 12-font, double spaced, signed and dated by the person changing his/her mind.
DEFAULT ON AN ALAKKAWA KENNEL CONTRACT
Here is just one example of what would constitute you, as a newly adopted party to an AKK to be in default on an Alakkawa Kennels contract:
You would be in default of Alakkawa Kennels Contracts if you "NEGLECT" to speak with a board certified, licensed and registered Veterinarian about maintaining vaccines such as worm preventative against parasites for your newly adopted puppy from Alakkawa Kennels and if you refuse to comply with the recommendation from the breeders as well as a board certified, licensed and registered Veterinarian about maintaining vaccines such as worm preventative against parasites for your newly adopted puppy from Alakkawa Kennels. Again, "YOU" will be in default – not the breeders.
"YOU" are responsible for communicating with "YOUR" Veterinarian – the breeders are not required to do this for a person who has ownership of an AKK. The breeders are very careful in being as detailed as possible in each and every contract they write. Nevertheless, if you have not obtained ownership of an Alakkawa Kennel puppy yet, and you change your mind for any reason, the reason must be sent to Alakkawa Kennels in a formal typed letter, signed and dated by the (potential) adopted new owner.
If you have picked out a puppy and something should happen to the puppy while the puppy is with the breeders, and you have paid the entire adoption fee to include the deposit, then your entire amount will be refunded within 90 days, if not sooner.
IT IS ALL LEGAL
The questionnaire becomes a legal part of Alakkawa Kennels Buyers Agreement and Bill of Sale Contract in the event you and Alakkawa Kennels both come to a mutual decision that you will be able to obtain a puppy from the breeders.
TO BE MARRIED OR NOT TO BE MARRIED - THAT IS THE QUESTION
If you are married and wish for your mate to be on the questionnaire and be a part of the contract, please provide their information also when the questionnaire is sent to you. If you are not married, but living with a partner, only one person’s name should be listed on the questionnaire and the potential owner will be the person with whom the breeders at Alakkawa Kennels will do business with.
There are four (4) contracts the breeders supply to potential Buyer(s). They are as follows:
MAIN CONTRACT - Alakkawa Kennels Buyers Agreement and Bill of Sale Contract
1. Addendum A: Alakkawa Kennels Spay/Neuter Contract
2. Addendum B: Alakkawa Kennels Adult Health Examination Contract
3. Addendum C: Alakkawa Kennels Guarantee of Good Health Contract
4. Alakkawa Kennels Questionnaire - becomes a legal part of all the above contracts.
Please know it is truly best for you and for any potential breed of dog that you are interested in adopting that you DO YOUR RESEARCH on the breed. Please do not CONTACT ALAKKAWA KENNELS just because this is an ADORABLE BREED. This breed is high maintenance, cannot be trusted off a leash, must be crated while you are gone to work or out running errands, and this breed is simply not for everyone.
Nobody wants any breed of dog that does not fit a person's lifestyle. You do not any breed of dog that you do not have time for. You also do not want any breed of dog that you cannot financially afford. Please know it is truly best for you and for any potential breed of dog that you are interested in adopting to DO YOUR RESEARCH!!!
If you expect to adopt a puppy from Alakkawa Kennels, please make sure you do not plan to leave the AKK unattended in your backyard, unattended in your house while you are gone, or unattended at any given point in time. If you do plan to do any of the aforementioned, please know this breed is NOT for you. There are reason's why this breed may not be for you and why this breed is simply not for everyone. This is why the breeder's are begging you to do your research on this breed before you contact them.
If you have read this far, have done your own research on this breed, understand Alakkawa Kennels process and you agree to these few listed terms and conditions (which are also entailed on the questionnaire and will not be sent to a person who does not pass an initial screening process), and you would like to be considered to adopt an Alakkawa puppy, please contact the breeder's at [email protected] to request a questionnaire.
