When the puppies are born we immediately (within 24 hours)
email lots of photos to the first pick male and female buyers.
They have a few days to either select a puppy or pass on the
litter before I move along and send photos of available puppies
to the second pick buyers and so on until everyone with
advance reservations have selected. If you pass on the litter,
your $300 deposit is immediately refundable or transferable towards
another puppy/litter- your choice. If you do decide to select a
puppy at that time, your deposit becomes non-refundable once
you ask us to hold a specific puppy and your deposit will be
applied to hold the puppy you have selected. In the end, any
puppies that are not selected by buyers with advance
reservations are then posted on our web site and available to
others. Most of our puppies are spoken for long before the age
they can safely begin to receive visitors or leave for their new
homes (7+ weeks), so reserving earliest will always give a buyer
the greatest selection, however it never "commits" you to a
puppy you select this young, or have not met in person yet.
Reserving pick order in an unborn litter only gives you advance
opportunity to select early in a litter before others!
Additionally, once you have a deposit in with us, we do try our
best to give priority consideration to those who have shown a
commitment by already having a deposit in with us. Your
deposit not only holds your pick order spot in the litter of your
choosing, but also simultaneously acts as a "floating deposit"
for any other puppies becoming unexpectedly available from
other litters, before we post them on our web site as available to
You are always welcome to re-select if you change your mind about
your puppy prior to 8 weeks old, for any reason. Though your $300
deposit is not refundable once you ask us to hold a particular
puppy and turn other buyers away, we will absolutely transfer
your deposit towards any other puppy or upcoming litter if you
change your mind about the puppy you initially selected! We only have two limitations to honoring a deposit:
Because costs of re-advertising a puppy is both time consuming
and expensive, we limit buyers re-selecting to no more then just
one time and we must be notified of any re-selections prior to
your puppy turning 8 weeks old. At 7 weeks old they can have
visitors in person, so this allows everyone to meet their puppy
in person prior to fully committing. Puppies can go home
between 7-8 weeks old, depending on their exact vaccination
regimen, but must be paid for in full and picked up (unless
arrangements have been made in advance) by 8 weeks old.
When you meet the puppy in person for him/her to go home,
you are still welcome then to pass on the puppy and re-select or
wait for another litter so long as the puppy is still under 8 weeks
old. This way, you are never ever committed to a puppy before
you actually are able to see and meet your puppy in person at 7
For all litters, I update photos at birth and again at 25 days of age
and once again at 6 1/2 to 7 weeks old. Unfortunately, I am not
able to update the litters more frequently due to time
constraints. Also, I do add video clips at 7 weeks old.
Balance payments are due for puppies no later then the date they turn 8 weeks old.
