Customer Policy

We do not pre-screen our customers to see if they "qualify" for a puppy. We at Sugar Spring Puppies trust our puppy customers and expect them to educate themselves on what it takes to raise a Shiba Inu puppy and provide all the care, attention, socialization, and training the puppy will need BEFORE placing a deposit. Be sure that you are prepared for the work and time involved in training and socializing your Shiba Inu puppy before you buy one! Here is a quick overview of the Shiba Inu breed.

Read this page for information on what to expect when you first bring your puppy home!

If you have done your homework and have adequate living or yard space, and time that you can devote to training and bonding with your new furry friend, you may go ahead and reserve one of our puppies! We trust that you will provide a good, loving home!

As always, feel free to contact us if you have any questions!

We reserve the right to refuse selling a puppy to anyone for any reason. We reserve the right to change our policies at any time.

Waitlist Policy

You can view our paid waitlist on the puppy page. The people on the waitlist get to pick from each new litter before any puppies are made available to the general public. If you would like to get a guaranteed spot in line to pick a puppy, then consider joining our waitlist!

For a nonrefundable deposit of $400 (which applies toward the final price of the puppy) you can join the waitlist for a puppy. The deposit reserves your spot in line for choosing a puppy from an upcoming litter.

When the puppies are 2-3 weeks old, we will begin at the top of the waitlist and you can either choose your puppy, or you can pass and wait for the next litter(s). If you choose to buy from another breeder while you are still on our waitlist, please let us know so that we can remove you from our list.

As always, feel free to contact us if you have any questions!

We reserve the right to refuse selling a puppy to anyone for any reason.

Payment Policy

Deposits are non-refundable. If something should happen to your puppy when you have a deposit placed on it, you would have three options:

1) pick another available puppy
2) use your deposit to reserve a future puppy in an upcoming litter
3) have your deposit refunded

If you default or cancel and never pick up your puppy, your deposit will then be used to help locate a new home for the puppy. (We do our best to contact you numerous times as well as give a two week grace period of not hearing from you before we conclude that you have abandoned your puppy. If we do not hear back from you for two weeks, we will make the puppy available again for reservation so it can find its new home.) We try our best to be fair and make allowances or give refunds for circumstances beyond your control.

The balance due must be paid in cash, at the time of the puppy pick-up. If your puppy is being shipped, the balance due must be paid through Paypal at least 72 hours (3 days) before the flight.

Local Pickup and Arrangements

Puppies can be picked up at our farm near Hopkinsville, KY when they are 8 weeks old or older. They will be current on their shots and deworming and will have had a vet examination done prior to going home.

We can also meet you in Nashville Tennessee, Bowling Green Kentucky, Evansville Indiana, or Paducah Kentucky for free.

Shipping Information

Shipping by airplane is available for $375.00. We will provide you will all the information you need to know about the shipping process and how to pick up your puppy from the airport and what to bring with you. It's actually pretty simple and we're very experienced with shipping puppies.

Puppies travel by airplane, in their own crate (which you may keep) in a temperature/pressure-controlled section of the airplane, to the airport nearest you. When the puppy arrives, you will pick it up from the cargo area of the airport. I will give you the exact address of where to go, as well as instructions for pickup. We also provide a tracking number so you can keep an eye on the flight's progress on the day of the flight!

If you want to have your puppy shipped by ground transport, you will need to contact and pay the ground transport person directly. One we have experience working with is Kelly Hicks and her phone number is 757-831-8478 and her website is

Visitation Policy

We do our best to ensure that all our dogs receive excellent care! We would like to limit outside traffic through our kennels as much as we can to help minimize the potential of someone unintentionally tracking in diseases (like parvo, giardia, etc). We welcome only those seriously interested in a puppy, or those that have already placed a deposit on one to visit our kennel and see your future puppy's parents. Please remember that it places stress on our mothers to have strangers come in and look at and handle their newborns. Thank you for your understanding!
