Looking for a rare breed puppy can be frustrating as the wait may be long for a puppy. This article does a great job of explaining things from a breeder's perspective and it may help to shed some light on the process. Puppy Buyer Etiquette by Joanna Kimball
If colour, markings and immediate availability are a priority for you, we are not likely to be the right breeder for you. Our puppies are not sold on a first come, first served basis, nor are they assigned to their new homes on the basis of colour preference. At Northrock our puppies are placed to best meet their particular needs and final placements are not determined until after our evaluation process is complete at around 8 weeks of age. We love our dogs very much and feel a tremendous responsibility to match them with suitable homes that will love and care for them forever. Careful consideration is given to the desires, lifestyle and experience of prospective families and we enjoy taking the time to get to know you.
