Waiting List for a Future Litter

Home

 

 

 

We do not maintain a formal waiting list.  But we do give "pick of litter" for a boy and "pick of litter" for a girl for each upcoming litter.  To secure "pick of litter", a buyer must make a deposit of $200 with PayPal.

 

We will show prices for boys and girls for each upcoming litter on our Upcoming Litters page.  These "pre-arrival" prices will be set at least $200 lower than what we would expect the "pick of litter" puppy to be priced at once born.  We will give the "pick of litter" buyer the lower price of the "pre-arrival" price or the "after-arrival" price.

 

The deposit is refundable only if there is no puppy of the selected sex in the litter, but can be applied to another puppy or upcoming litter if the buyer chooses to not take a puppy for any reason.

 

Revised refund policy as of 11/30/16:

If there is no puppy born that meets the specified criteria of the buyer, then the buyer can choose to get a refund of deposit or to apply the deposit to another puppy or to a future litter.

If there is a puppy (or puppies) born that meets the specified criteria of the buyer but the buyer decides to not choose and take a puppy for any reason, then the buyer has the option to apply the deposit to another puppy or to a future litter or to get a refund (computed as described on our webpage at pamcrump.com/62a_paying.htm in the section What happens if Buyer changes mind after making a payment on a puppy?). 

If a specific puppy was not chosen before deciding to not take a puppy, then the refund computation will be based on the later sales of the puppies that were available for the buyer to select from, with the refund being based on whichever of those puppy sales would generate the greatest refund.

 

Once the litter arrives, the "pick of litter" buyer will have until the puppies are 7 weeks old to select a puppy, although we would appreciate making the selection as soon as possible so that we can make the puppies not selected available for other buyers.  In the meantime, another buyer can sign up for the second "pick" by making a $200 deposit with PayPal.

 

For buyers who have reserved a subsequent "pick", that selection will need to be made within 48 hours after we send a message notifying that it is their time to select (unless the puppies are not yet 7 weeks old, in which case they will have until the puppies are 7 weeks old).

 

Once a selection is made, the buyer will need to pay any additional amount required to comply with our payment terms.  See Paying for Your Shih Tzu.

 

 

 

Pick of Litter for a New Litter

 

We recognize that selecting one puppy among several can often be difficult when a litter is only days old.  If there are two or more available puppies of the same sex in a new litter, we will allow a buyer to reserve "pick" of those puppies by making a 25% deposit with PayPal.

 

The deposit is refundable only if there becomes no puppy of the selected sex in the litter, but can be applied to another puppy or upcoming litter if the buyer chooses to not take a puppy for any reason.

 

Revised refund policy as of 11/30/16:

If there becomes no puppy that meets the specified criteria of the buyer, then the buyer can choose to get a refund of deposit or to apply the deposit to another puppy or to a future litter.

If there is a puppy (or puppies) that meets the specified criteria of the buyer but the buyer decides to not choose and take a puppy for any reason, then the buyer has the option to apply the deposit to another puppy or to a future litter or to get a refund (computed as described on our webpage at pamcrump.com/62a_paying.htm in the section What happens if Buyer changes mind after making a payment on a puppy?).
