Welcome.... to the CYCLONE Border Collies Puppy Inquiry page. If you would like more
information about how to obtain a puppy from one of my upcoming litters, please read the following:
I do not promise any puppy to any individual until I make a final selection as to which puppy(ies) I
may keep in my own training/breeding program. The puppies will be aptitude tested and evaluated
(using the Volhard Puppy Aptitude Test format at the 49th day of age). If the stud service contract
stipulates a puppy for the owner of the sire, then that owner will get first pick after I make my
breeding program selection.
You may fill out a Puppy Application (below) anytime after a planned breeding is announced. If
you are interested in obtaining a CYCLONE puppy, print and complete the application for the litter in
which you are interested, and send it to me, either via email or USPS.
SUBMISSION OF AN APPLICATION DOES NOT GUARANTEE THE PROMISE OF A CYCLONE PUPPY
When the puppies are 4 weeks old, you will be notified whether or not there is a puppy available for
you. Please make sure you have read the Puppy Contract. If you are offered a Cyclone Puppy, at that
time, you will print and sign the contract, and send it to me with a deposit. A deposit will consist of
half the amount of the quoted purchase price of the puppy. Puppies will be sold with a co-ownership
and Spay/Neuter clauses in the Contract. If you are an established Border Collie breeder, and are
interested in acquiring a potential brood bitch or sire, please call me to discuss a possible Breeder's
Contract. You must be 18 years or older to be eligible to purchase a puppy from CYCLONE Border
Collies. Puppy Applications and Puppy Contracts may be sent to Karen Herceg, 191 Kanawha Dr.,
Weirton, WV 26062.
I DO NOT PLACE PUPPIES AS GIFTS FOR A THIRD PARTY UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES
The purpose of the Application is to get some information about you and what you are looking for
in a puppy and why you want a CYCLONE puppy. In many cases, I prefer to place puppies with
established handlers. Keep in mind that my puppies come from proven obedience, agility and herding
lines. The puppy that you apply for will need a career in addition to being a family dog. If you have
previously earned performance titles on another dog, please be sure to put that on your application.
If need be, I may match your desires with the right puppy for you. If I allow the applicant to
choose their own puppy, the applicant will be informed by me as to the order in which they may
choose. Once a puppy/dog has been agreed upon, the Puppy Contract will be signed by me, and sent
back to the Buyer with a current photograph and description of that particular puppy, at which time
the deposit becomes non-refundable. If the applicant and/or I determine that there is no suitable
puppy that meets the applicant's desires, the deposit will be returned to the applicant.
