Our Puppy Wait List policy is explained below.

You may be aware that breeders of the Lhasa apso are in short supply. Ethically, there are certain parameters a good breeder should always follow. It is important to understand that over-breeding a female will not only deplete her but will ultimately have an adverse effect on her puppies. While I would love to have a puppy for every customer as soon as they seek to adopt one, I simply will not compromise what is right to meet that demand – no matter how profitable it ultimately may be nor how popular it might make me. My reputation as a breeder is of the utmost importance to me and I will do nothing to damage it.
I cannot guarantee that every puppy will leave here to be perfectly well behaved, never suffer with a health issue, live until 20 years of age and keep itself well-groomed at all times. I can tell you that we strive to bring you the best and guarantee every puppy with a lifetime genetic and congenital health guarantee that surpasses any that you will find elsewhere.

Because I often have quite a few people on my waiting list I have determined that a better way to organize the order of my customers is necessary. I have set up this page which will be used to list customers in order based on receipt of a non-refundable $50 deposit ($100 if you plan to adopt two babies around the same time). It is my belief that taking large deposits on puppies that are not yet born is inappropriate, but this small deposit will help me identify those that are serious vs. those that really are undecided. This deposit will be used towards the price of your puppy/puppies (you may hold up to two places on the waiting list) and is not required to purchase a puppy, only to put you ahead of those that are not quite as committed. The deposit will give you a number on my waiting list guaranteeing the order in which you will be contacted when the puppies arrive. This deposit insures the more serious buyers will be given an opportunity to choose first.

Do not hesitate to place your entry on our waiting list based on the number of entries already on it. Some have chosen to wait until the “time is right”, others are waiting for something very specific.

I also have several other breeders that I work with and will recommend them when I do not have or do not expect puppies of my own.

Generally speaking, most people wait no more than six months unless they choose to do so.

This decision was necessary for me to be able to do a better job of meeting your needs and insuring the seriousness of buyers.
