How My Wait List Works:
I understand that each family probably has a particular color and gender in mind along with other personal preferences. With that understanding, I give each family on our waiting list the option to choose from the puppies I have available or to "pass" on that litter and wait for the next. For instance, if the first family to place a deposit is looking for a female and none are produced in a particular litter, then that family will then have the option to "pass" and wait for the next litter. After the first family makes their choice, the second family is then given the same options. If that first family should choose to "pass", they will then have first choice again for the next litter available. Then, another instance, if the first family chooses a puppy, but then the second family chooses to "pass", that second family will then have first choice on the next available litter. In order to ensure that each family has the chance to find their perfect puppy, each deposit is valid for up to one year from the time that it is placed.
Because puppies appropriate temperament testing can’t be performed until 7 weeks of age, the selection process won't take place until this time. This helps ensure each puppy is placed in the most appropriate home.
After all families who have placed a deposit have had the chance to choose or "pass", the remaining puppies in each litter will then be available to those who haven't placed a deposit.
