Finding Your New Furry Best Friend


Selecting the perfect puppy for your home involves a thoughtful process. At Up and Away Pups, we've streamlined puppy adoption steps to ensure a seamless match between potential pet owners and their ideal furry companions. Our intuitive and logical process focuses on understanding individuals' unique needs, preferences, and lifestyles.


1. Personalized Consultation

Begin the journey in the dog adoption process with a personalized consultation. Our experienced team takes the time to understand your lifestyle, activity level, living situation, and preferences. This initial conversation sets the foundation for a tailored matchmaking process.

2. Breed Matching

Based on the information gathered, our specialists can guide you through a curated selection of breeds that align with your lifestyle. Each breed has its characteristics, energy levels, and temperament. You can consult with our team to ensure a harmonious match between a puppy's traits and your preferences.

3. Meet-and-Greet

Once potential matches are identified, the next step in the dog adoption process is arranging a meet-and-greet session. This allows you to interact with the puppies to get a feel for their personalities and ensure a strong connection. Our team can answer any questions and guide the encounter.

4. Education and Training Guidance

Our process goes beyond securing puppy adoption papers and other essentials. We take on a holistic approach since adopting a puppy comes with responsibilities. We provide comprehensive information on each breed's specific needs, training requirements, and care tips. This empowers you with the knowledge to provide the best possible environment for your new family member.

5. Home Compatibility Check

The next step in the puppy adoption process is a home compatibility check to ensure a seamless transition. This step helps us address potential challenges and provide insights on preparing your home for your new puppy.

6. Adoption Support

Once a match is found, our support doesn't end there. We provide ongoing assistance and resources to make the adoption process as smooth as possible. This includes guidance on health care, nutrition, and behavioral training.


Our goal is to go beyond merely matching pets with owners. We aim to create lifelong bonds by ensuring each puppy finds a loving home that complements its unique qualities. At Up and Away Pups, we believe in a holistic approach to pet adoption, making the process intuitive and enriching for both pet and owner alike.

Make a deposit

After selecting your new pup, the next step is to make a $200 deposit. Once your deposit is received, we will remove your dog chosen from the list and send you a confirmation email regarding the next steps you should take. Your deposit will be applied towards the entirety of your adoption fee.

Vet Clearing Icon

Vet Clearing

Your selected pup will need a checkup with our vet. This process ensures your new fur buddy is healthy and fit to travel home with you. Once our vet has cleared your puppy, you will have 48 hours to pick up your new fur baby. There will be a daily charge of $50 holding fee for each day after the 48 hours.

Coming Home/Cancellation Icon

Coming Home/Cancellation

You have a four-day holding period after 48-hour clearing to pick up your puppy from our site. If this holding period expires, your deposit becomes non-refundable. The puppy will then be enlisted for adoption back into your site. If you cancel the pickup, your deposit will be used towards another puppy you may want to adopt within 12 months.


Scheduling Meet and Greets

We encourage potential pet owners to schedule meet and greets before adopting a puppy. Please call 336-915-2510 or email us at info@happytailpuppies.com to make an appointment. Meet and greet appointments should be made 24 hours before the scheduled date.
