If our puppies are still with us at 10 -11 week our veterinarian will administer DHLPP and will continue a vaccination protocol according to the age of the puppy. Our veterinarian comes to our house. This way we avoid exposing the puppies to possible diseases at the vet clinic.

However, you may or may not have the same picking order as there may already be deposit holders for the other litter. HOWEVER, PRICES ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE WITHOUT NOTICE from one litter to the next due to several factors including, but not limited to, outside stud service, different bloodlines, brighter markings/colors, market, etc. If Buyer passes on a litter and doesn't want to pay the increased price point, a refund of the deposit will be issued.
