Time Frame:
Typically there are 5-10 puppies in a litter. The families shown below will be choosing based on the date of their deposit. Once a deposit is placed, the owner has the option of the current litter, or to wait for a future litter. If identified, their preference of sex, size and coloring is shown - This gives others knowledge of who they may be leaning towards and helps me choose the appropriate sire for those higher on the list.
The current litter would go home in mid June of 2022 (praying we get pregnant everytime) in late summer of 2022, about September of 2022, and then November 2022.

At the point a female comes into season, puppies would go home 4 months later. In the event litters are larger than anticipated, those lower on the list will be contacted to determine their interest. If someone does rollover, they will be placed on the list numerically, based on the date of their deposit. If anyone can think of something more fair, please advise.
