AKC CHAMPION DARKHORSE'S BERSERKER FOR VALHALLA
DarkHorse Cane Corso (pronounced KAH-NEH COHR-SOH) was established in 2008. We are a family owned working/show dog home. We are a show/working kennel that believes in the concept of the "whole" dog, temperament, structure, health and working ability. We are located on the South Shore, about 55 minutes north of Cape Cod in Massachusetts. We have two children as well as the dogs. Welcome to our page, feel free to look around. This website is still a work in progress and we will continue to add pages and more information throughout the next several months.
All dogs for sale from our kennel are sold to approved homes only; we reserve the right to choose which home is best for the dog. The welfare of our puppies is of the highest importance. All dogs listed for sale will remain so until such time as a deposit is received. A deposit represents a sales contract with buyer and will insure that you get a puppy from our litter, deposits are not refundable. References will be asked for and checked. Phone call inquiries preferred.
All dogs are sold with a written sales contract,. By purchasing a dog from this site you are attesting to have read this contract and agreeing to its content. Please feel free to ask any questions that you may have after reading the contract or when and how you would like to have it provided to you, ie faxed back and forth, mailed, etc.
(If a dog is sold with stud rights or co-ownership/puppies back; please know that we feel that the dog has a lot to offer our kennel still and hope that we may be able to incorporate him or her in our breeding program in the future. Our wish to retain something back from the dog is due to our appreciation of its quality.)
We want you to be fully satisfied and happy with the DarkHorse puppy you get from us. We feel that these terms will take some of the risk and expense of raising a puppy. Unfortunately we cannot offer this to overseas sales. Overseas will be charged the full upfront price. If this is not listed on the dog you are interested in please ask.
Now if the dog you choose is an adult or older puppy the price will vary depending on age, quality, training and the testing completed. These dogs will be priced accordingly, as there is no risk in an adult, already grown out dog. What you see is what you get. If you have any further questions about these terms please feel free to ask.
When you have chosen your puppy/dog and we have approved your home, a non refundable deposit of $500 will be due immediately to hold your dog and take him off the site, till further arrangements are made and balance is paid. These arrangements are to be completed within a week's time. This should be long enough to get the balance to us and figure out details for pick up or delivery. This initial amount will be deducted from the original price/total amount due and is meant to show your sincere commitment to follow through with the final purchase.
If you need us to keep your puppy or dog for an additional period of time before you can take him/her home, i.e. you are going on vacation or getting a fenced area ready, etc., we can keep the puppy/dog for up to 2 weeks at no charge provided that he/she is paid in full when arrangements are made, any additional time spent with us before pickup or shipping, for any reason will be charged at our normal boarding rate of $10 a day and must be paid for before taking delivery of dog. If the purchaser does not come back for the dog after 20 days of purchase date and no further arrangements have been made, the dog may be resold.
All puppies/dogs will come up-to-date on shots, and if old enough on Interseptor or Iverhart Plus for heartworm preventative and Bravecto or Advantix. All dogs have their rear dew claws removed shortly after birth and have been raised in our home with our two children, where they are held constantly and are accustomed to familiar noises. If the dog is old enough it has had leash training, bait training and table training, as well as housebreaking. Also it may be shown to ensure of it's quality and stable temperament. We take great pride in the health and happiness of our dogs and believe that you will see that when you meet them. When we place our dogs much thought has gone into finding and matching them up with the best possible home that will be able to appreciate the dog's virtues and show or breed them to the breed's best potential.
