The Greenbrier Experience

Are you longing for more companionship? We’re excited that you have chosen GreenBrier Homestead for your new puppy! We realize that this is a really big moment for you and probably somewhat stressful. In consideration of this, I would like to take a little time and tell you what to expect throughout your experience with us.

First I would like to take a little time and introduce myself and out team. My name is Elmer Smucker and I am your puppies primary caretaker. I am blessed with a wonderful wife and four little children and can usually be found somewhere on the farm. I grew up with pets and domesticated animals and quickly found my passion was in Animal care. We started in this industry professionally in 2017, when I was 24. Since that time, we have persisted in excellence, not only in the experience of adopting families, but also for the dogs and puppies we are entrusted with.

Our Commitment

We are committed to offering socialized puppies raised in an optimal setting for the health and wellbeing of our puppies and their future parents. Every puppy we offer has been raised under our stringent Greenbrier conditions.

Here is what you can expect from us.

  • 1: Choosing your puppy. Take plenty of time to browse our info and decide which specific puppy you want. We DNA test all of our parents and can pinpoint specific coat types etc.
  • 2: Visit Reserve Your Puppy to enter an application and deposit. This will automatically get you entered on our current waiting list. You can see the current waiting times and folks here. Deposits are nonrefundable.
  • 3: We will email you with either an application acceptance or refusal. Please note, An additional phone call may be required if we have questions on your application.
  • 4: You will receive monthly updates as to your status on the waiting list. You can also monitor the waiting list here.
  • 5: When your turn comes up ( The seriously exciting part! ) we will reach out to you and let you know you are on the list for a current litter. We usually do this when they are around 3 weeks old and will begin sending you weekly pictures at 4 weeks old and the goal if for you to be matched with your puppy by 6 weeks old. At this point the entire deposit becomes non-refundable but can be transferred to a future litter if the timing doesn’t work for you on this one.
  • 6: Meeting the puppy. The puppies are ready to leave here by the time they are 8 weeks old. By this time their mother will have weaned them, and they are ready for their next step in life. While the puppies have a wonderful home here and plenty of exercise and sun we want to have them all placed in their forever homes by 10 weeks old. The closer they are to 8 weeks old the easier they adjust. We will reach out to you to schedule your appointment and we are mostly available Monday to Friday but are always closed on Sunday. The goal is for you to come here to the farm, meet us and your puppies Mother but we do have shipping options as well if you need to go that route. Most of the East coast can be reached at approximately $350; Nationwide shipping is approximately $750.
  • 7: On your initial meeting,  we will have a care booklet we sit down and review with you going over what to expect as your puppy transitions to his new home. This booklet is packed with tips on how to make the transition easier for you and your puppy.
  • 8: Payment. We process the remaining payment via our credit card machine. This is an additional service we like to offer all our puppy parents and would strongly recommend you to use this option over cash as it puts your purchase under the consumer protection act. Just an additional Greenbrier peace of mind.
  • 9: Follow-up and questions. One of the most important benefits of working with an Organization like Greenbrier is the additional support you get throughout your puppy’s life. This is our career, and we take it seriously and want you to reach back out to us without hesitation if you have any questions, comments or concerns at any point in your puppy’s life.
  • 10: Enjoy to the fullest.
