If you want to get a good dog, find a breeder you like and give them a deposit to get on their “pick list.” I know it’s frustrating. Who wants to give a deposit for a dog they have not even seen yet? However, if you want a good dog, it is a MUST to place a deposit, and then you can get a pick when puppies are born. Most of our deposits are received 2-6 months in advance. Sometimes longer if you are very picky about gender and color. EVERY DEPOSIT is 100% refundable for any reason. We would never want to pressure someone into getting a dog, just because we held it for them. It’s a big decision, and it’s ok if you change your mind, even at the last minute. Never give a “non-refundable” deposit to a breeder.
