Seller’s obligations are limited to those stated in this contract.
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 guaranteeing a certain color/gender is not possible. We will do our best to match each family to the color and gender that is requested however, we ask that the family understand that sometimes the temperament of a certain dog may fit your family better than choosing by color or gender. When the puppies are born we will work our way down the list letting each family know what genders would be available at their pick. At that point we ask that you specify what gender you will be picking from the litter or that you would prefer to transfer to the next litter. Deposits can be transferred to future litters for up to 24 months of the date deposit was received. Please indicate your top color and gender choices when you send your deposit, knowing that there is a chance we won’t have that available. The selection that you make here is a preference only and can be changed, by you, should something different become available when your name is called.
