Spirit Golden Retrievers Waiting List Policy:
Spirit Golden Retrievers will initiate a waiting list by litter being
bred. You must be approved by
Spirit Golden Retrievers to have a place
on our waiting list. Because of the
amount of information we provide to potential puppy buyers, I prefer that
initial contact be made via e-mail if at all possible.
Interested families are asked to complete our Puppy
Questionnaire before being approved.
Once approved, you will be contacted with the number of your placement on the
We do require a $200 non-refundable deposit to be on a waiting list until the
pregnancy is confirmed by the vet.
Once pregnancy is confirmed, all potential puppy buyers will be notified and the
remaining $300 deposit is required to hold your spot on the list for one puppy.
The total $500 deposit is applied to total cost of puppy for limited AKC
registration regardless of sex of the puppy.
If Spirit Golden Retrievers is not able to provide the sex puppy
you want, this deposit will be refunded or put towards another future litter.
Also, if the pregnancy is not confirmed, your initial $200 will be returned or
it can be applied to the next litter.
Once notification is sent, you have one week to respond and
comply to hold your spot on the list.
Failure to respond will result in loss of your position on the list.
Spirit Golden Retrievers reserves the right to first and second
choices from the litter if we desire.
A limited amount of dogs are kept here at Spirit Golden’s to ensure that
they receive all the love and attention they deserve.
If I choose not to keep a puppy and no other stipulations exist, first
pick goes to the person at the top of the list.
Spirit Golden Retrievers will make their choice of puppy at 6 weeks
of age. After my choice, the order
of names on the waiting list will make their choice.
If that is not possible in person due to distance, I will be happy to
help you in your decision based on personality of the dog.
Spirit Golden Retrievers reserves the right to sell to parties not on
the list. This would generally be
for stud services if applicable or a puppy exchange with another breeder.
In the unlikely event that a puppy is returned to
Retrievers due to illness or genetic disorder, that puppy buyer
becomes first on the list to pick from future litter.
Making a commitment to this puppy for life is absolutely
essential for my puppies. This
should be a fun and exciting joint decision in adding a new member to your
family. A new family member should
be loved and cared for life. I do
not ask for an initial deposit because I know that sometimes things and timing
change and I ask that you not take a puppy that you are not committed too.
Due to the amount of requests I receive, once the deposit is received
which holds your position on the list for a long time and you change your mind,
the deposit is nonrefundable except for the stipulation stated above regarding
sex of the puppy. It can however be
forwarded to a future litter.
