Welcome to our Nursery. At Sunburst, we currently have puppies!
Two beautiful Sable and White males available!!!! Super sweet boys, very playful and outgoing!!!! New Photos NOW Posted!!!
We wanted to share this video as proof of how hard it is to get a puppy to stay still long enough to snap a cute photo of him/her. It's alot of work...but it is also a TON of fun!
All of our puppies are registered with AKC. Also, all of our puppies are sold with a Health and Hereditary Guarantee. And they are sold with either a Show-Prospect/Breeder contract, or a Pet (spay/neuter) contract. They all receive their first set of puppy shots at 6 weeks old and are dewormed at 2 weeks, 4 weeks, and 6 weeks old. All of our puppies are house raised. They are well socialized and have been exposed to children. All of these puppies would make wonderful companions and possibly show/breeder prospects. Thanks again for your interest if I can help you out any further feel free to email me or call me at 706-777-1435. Also if interested I am able to send copies of pedigrees and pictures. And as you see we love our babies, so if your looking for a lil love of your own....look no further.
Understanding The Contracts
At the time of purchase, the buyer of the sheltie puppy has two options... a Show-Prospect/Breeder contract or a Pet (spay/neuter) contract.
1. Show-Prospect/Breeder contract - If this contract is chosen, Melinda Hicks will remain the co-owner of puppy until the FIRST PICK puppy is received from the sheltie's first litter. The purpose of "co-ownership" is to insure that the seller receives the first pick puppy of the first litter. Between 6 and 8 weeks of age the seller Melinda Hicks shall pick the First Pick puppy from the the sheltie's first litter, at that point, the seller Melinda Hicks will sign off as co-owner and full ownership is that of the buyer.
2. Pet (spay/neuter) contract- In choosing a Pet contract, it is the utmost importance that the sheltie be spayed or neutered by 9 months of age. This does not mean that the sheltie cannot be shown in agility, obedience or herding. The purpose behind this is to protect the puppy and ensure the breed. Mix-breed puppies many times are unwanted and thus end up in our animal shelters. Male dogs are prone to mark their territory if not neutered at an early age.
Please remember to have your vet "health check" your puppy within 5 days and to follow through on future vaccinations. Pets are a responsibility!
We hope that your future includes one of our puppies and that they make you as happy as they have made our family!
