This issue has come up before from people that have been on our list a long time and passed on several opportunities. So I just want to give some clarification on the subject of the waiting list and our puppy prices.
This is from our “Getting a Puppy” page. I did just revamp it to hopefully clarify things.
“Please carefully consider the decision to get on our waiting list. We want serious adopters that are prepared to take on a puppy when a puppy is available. IF YOU SIT ON OUR LIST FOR OVER A YEAR (BECAUSE YOU HAVE PASSED MORE THAN ONCE FOR WHATEVER REASON, AND OUR PRICE INCREASES, YOU WILL NEED TO PAY THE CURRENT PRICE.) If you are on the list for over a year because we had nothing to offer you (or you told me when applying “I only want a red female” and I’ve not had one to offer you), then that is a different story. Obviously, I understand that sometimes life “throws a curve ball” and something happens, and we are happy to work with you. But please know that as time goes by our expenses increase (vet, fuel, food, health testing, etc) and we must then increase our prices to compensate.”
If anyone would like to be removed from our list please let me know. Or if you have questions regarding this issue, please email me. Thank you for your understanding in this matter.
