This is a list of all families who have filled out and application, submitted a Application fee ($200), and been approved to receive a puppy. The $200.00 application fee is non-refundable. No exceptions. THIS IS NOT A DEPOSIT. This is a fee to cover the time that we spend processing paperwork and talking with a client prior to their selection of a puppy and bringing him or her home. This includes screening the new home, and the many discussions we have with clients to ensure the best fit.If you receive one of our puppies this application fee of $200 will be applied to your final purchase price of $2000.
Once we have puppies that are born who fit the description of what you are looking for, we will move down the list one by one contacting you and filling up that litters' waiting list. It's important to note here that MVGD always reserves the right to determine where our puppies are placed. We may put other breeders or service/therapy dog trainers (these people have very specific requirements that require special consideration) on the list before we contact those who have submitted deposits. If you choose not to take a puppy from that litter you will keep your position on the reservation list. You will have 48 hour to respond to our attempts to reach you to confirm you want a pup from this litter. After 48 hours we will continue moving down the list and assume you choose to pass on this litter.
Once you have committed to a litter we will put your intended litter next to your name. However, your name will be left on the reservation list until you take a puppy home. We have seen all kinds of last minute emergencies that impact puppy placement right up until the day they leave. **We have some application fees that were placed with the intention of receiving a puppy from either Bisoux, Maggie or Suzy-Q. Those families will keep their current place on the list for each of those moms. Going forward we won't place anyone on a list for a specific mom until puppies are born but we need to honor our word with those who placed deposits before we changed our reservation system.**
When a family makes a reservation, they get put next in line on the list.* Let’s use the fictional Jones, Gonzales, and Chen families as examples. The Jones family makes their reservation, followed by the Gonzales and Chen families. They appear on our list like this:
As the breeder, we reserve the right to pick first from each litter, so we always appear ahead of all of the families on the list. So in reality, the list is more likely to look like this:
Let’s say we have a litter available. When those litters are 5-6 weeks old, we open the litter to the list for selection. If we want a puppy, we keep that one. Then we tell the Jones family they can pick. The Jones family decides that they want to wait for another litter, since they really want a specific color and sex. So they remain on the list. The Gonzales family selects its puppy, and then the Chen family selects it’s puppy. So our list now looks like this:
Before the final puppy payment is due, families can change their minds and return to the master list. So if the Chen family, for example, wants to return to the master list, they take their place after the Jones family and ahead of any other reservations that were placed AFTER the Chen family made their reservation.
Any reservations received after the Chen family made their reservation
So sometimes this means that even though we have, for example, 14 people on the master list and 8 puppies in a litter, not all of the available puppies may necessarily be spoken for from the list since people often choose to wait for a later litter.
This is why it’s good to get your reservation in early—it gives you a priority place on the master list. But also, if you are not particular about what you are looking for in a puppy (eg, specific size, sex, color, personality), then you may be able to get a puppy much sooner even though our waiting list appears quite full.
We know this is not typical, but it seems most fair to us and has been working well. If you have any questions about how our list works, please call or email. * Please note that regardless of position on the reservation list, we reserve the right to not place a given puppy in any home if it is our opinion or judgement that a particular puppy is not suitable for a particular home or home situation. As wonderful as our adopting families are, there are times that puppies are just not a good fit, and we will not place a puppy in a home we do not deem an appropriate fit. We believe families choose us to breed and raise their puppies because of our experience and expertise. On the rare occasion that this occurs, we ask families to please know we are using our judgement and expertise to ensure the best for both your family and the puppy. In this instance, families will be offered the remaining available puppies or the option to remain on the reservation list for next and future litters and refunds will not be issued if the family decides not to select a puppy from the remaining available puppies. Additionally, if information comes to light to change our opinion that a home is suitable for a puppy at any point prior to the family taking possession of the puppy, we reserve the right to refuse sale to that family and will refund any fees paid, less tangible expenses (if any are incurred). Payment in full must be made prior to puppy selection. Our non-refundable reservation fee is $350 and is applicable to the price of your puppy ($2800).
