Puppy Selection Guidelines
order of deposits received on a
particular litter is the order of puppy
selection. Deposits on puppies are
recorded when received. Puppies may be
picked up at the kennel or shipped by
air at 8 weeks.
A deposit reserves a pup on selected
litters (projected matings). If we are
unable to offer a pup as specified from
the litters of choice, the deposit
amount may be transferred to an
available litter or refunded. NOTE: The
mating calendar is a projection of
planned matings. These projected matings
are subject to change as to sire
availability and time periods (heat
cycles). Deposits remain as reserved
dam despite changes in actual matings.
check the mating calendar for updates.
