Christmas Puppies

I’m checking in again with my waiting list. Since all of these puppies will be ready just before Christmas, and I have new people emailing me daily about getting a “Christmas Puppy”, I need to check in again regarding everyone’s timeline.

I know I’ve asked this before, but the list is so long now, it is easier for me if everyone will simply send me a quick note to let me know where you stand and what your timeline looks like.

Puppies from the current litters are ready the week before Christmas if they go home at 8 weeks old, and around late January for an Accelerated Puppy.

Please drop me a quick note and let me know if you are interested in pups within this timeline. We will not hold puppies without additional charges, so it’s best if they go home at either 8 weeks old or 13 weeks old. Anything between those ages will be charged $100/week for us to keep them starting the day they turn 9 weeks old.

What I’d like to accomplish from this is to be able to tell the new people if there is a chance for a Christmas puppy, or if I already have 17 people that are currently on the waiting list that are interested in the current litters. Since the waiting list is well over 17 people, it’s possible they will all be matched.

But as with Sadie’s litter, many people on the waiting list “passed” on her pups, which resulted in “new” people ultimately adopting those puppies. The puppy matching process is almost always a bit complex, but I do my best to keep it as simple as possible.

So, please let me know:

1. If you want to pass on the current litters because you need to wait till spring or later.

2. You want to pass because we don’t have the color/gender that you want.

3. You definitely want to be considered for a pup out of the current litters.

4. The timeline is perfect for your schedule to either get an 8 week old puppy, or an Accelerated Puppy.

5. Anything else I need to know!

If I don’t hear from you by Sunday evening, I will be moving down the waiting list and assuming you are not yet ready for a puppy (I would prefer you just let me know you are not yet ready).
