The demand for German Shepherds and Miniature American Shepherds are high. For this reason deposits are taken sometimes up to six months from the birth of a litter. Our deposits (holding fee) is $350.00 and are non-refundable but may be transferred to another or next upcoming litter, should you not find a puppy in the litter that your deposit is being held. Under no circumstances will the deposit be returned so please make sure that your commitment to a puppy has been thought through very carefully. You are reserving a puppy from a litter therefore we are also turning away potential parents with your deposit on our list.
