You will not find a "Buy It Now" button on Ohio Standard Poodles. Nor will you find a PayPal or credit card link. We want first to get to know you and be sure that you and your potential puppy are a good fit. A deposit and/or payment will be accepted upon acceptance of your application. I will then send you payment options once I send the adoption papers. The below can be clipped and pasted in an email to me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I usually reply within 24 hours on weekdays.
