How to Reserve a Puppy

We have one master deposit list (see below). When a deposit is placed for a puppy with us, you’ll be added to the bottom of the master list for your desired color and gender. Once we receive the deposit, you’ll receive a phone call or email from us to have a conversation to make sure you’re comfortable with us and us with you.

When a litter is born, we contact those on the master list, starting at the top, to see if they would like to reserve a spot to pick out a puppy for that specific litter. If so, they transfer off of the master list and onto that specific litter’s list. If they would like to keep waiting they stay on the master list and we contact the family next in line.

Some people pay their deposit well before they are ready for a puppy so that they move up on the master list as those ahead of them transfer to specific litters as we have them available.

If we still have puppies available once we’ve contacted the entire master deposit list, we advertise them on their specific litter page.

We hope this makes sense! If you have any questions, call Steve at (989) 326-3440 or email and we’d love to help explain it to you!

*Update 6/8/2020- Due to the length of our current deposit list (below) we are temporally not allowing any more new deposits. As we have puppies born this fall/early winter, we will open it back up. If you are a current MEL owner and would like a second puppy from us, please email us. Thank you!
