Your deposit holds a puppy from the litter of your choosing which will be picked in the order the deposits are received on the day the pups are ready to leave.  Deposits are Non-Refundable.  We understand that everyone has a particular color/gender that they would prefer but, with a multi-color litter, guaranteeing a certain color and gender is not always possible.  When the puppies are born we will work our way down the list letting each family know what colors and genders would be available at their pick.  At that point we ask that you specify what color and gender you will be picking from the litter or that you would prefer to transfer to the next litter.  Deposits can be transferred as many times as you would like and still hold your spot on the list.  Please indicate your top two/three choices when you send your deposit, knowing that there is a chance we won’t have your first, or even second, choice available.

The price on this Contract is good for 12 months from the date on the contract.  Any pups picked from a litter born after 12 months from the date of this contract will be subject to any price changes.
