As of Jan 2023, I have changed the way I handle the waitlist. I will no longer be accepting applicants for my general waitlist.
Instead, you will apply for time specific waitlists of 3 month Sessions during which you will take a puppy home.
Current Waitlisters, You will be put first in line before any new applicants are added to the session.
All OTHER available spots for the Sessions will be offered to new waitlist members. The Apr 15 applications will be able to select from the following Sessions:
2023 Session C (July - Sept 2023)
2023 Session D (Oct - Dec 2023)
2024 Session A (Jan - Mar 2024)
I accept a conservative number of applicants to each session. I would rather under-estimate the number of puppies born than promise and disappoint. Because of this, I am expecting that there will be “extra” puppies from each session.
When all the people on a session waitlist have adopted, the puppies that are not placed will be made available for Quick Adoption.
Sometimes people assume there must be something wrong with a puppy who is available for quick adoption. Let me assure you, this is not the case. There are many reasons people choose one puppy over another. For example, they want a boy and we had more girls born. I am always surprised by which puppy goes first during selection. We are all different, and puppies have a way of finding themselves into the right families. Everyone thinks their baby is the cutest one in the nursery!
If you are on a Session Waitlist, previous deposits can also be applied toward a Quick Adoption puppy.
