You want to make a deposit on a puppy before birth

       If you are interested in a pup from us, you can make a deposit at anytime. We have many who contact us about making deposits long before litters are even expected, as they know that the difference of waiting a few months is worth it in the long run for the quality of puppy that they can only find with us. If you fit in this category, we welcome you to make a deposit-----but remind you that, although we can make estimates based on averages, we cannot guarantee actual dates for litters until an actual breeding has taken place. Dogs, like humans, are individuals. We do not give hormone shots or use artificial means to bring our girls into heat, and therefore, cannot tell you for sure (although we can often make a very good guess!) when your pup will be on the way until we actually have a breeding. If you have a strong preference for either a male or a female, deposit is the time to make that known. Note that choosing male or female will bind you to choose among only those puppies in the litter. If you do not have a preference on gender, you will have selection of all of the puppies available in the litter when your turn comes.
       When you visit our current and upcoming litters page, you can find our planned litters (with timing estimates), and bred litters (with their due dates and take home times) listed along with the current price of our puppies. You will find a "Pay Now" button, and all you have to do is click, and follow the instructions. You DO NOT have to have a PayPal account----you can also securely use your debit or credit card information. Deposits are $500, are non-refundable, and go towards the total price of your puppy. When you send your deposit, PLEASE follow up by sending us an email through millcreekfamilyfarms@gmail.com (also available on our contact us page) that includes your name and contact information. We would like to be given your first and last name, the best email address to reach you at, at least one phone number (preferably two), and the best time to reach you. We will be in touch with you shortly!
       Obviously, when you are making a deposit on unborn puppies, we do not know for sure how many puppies, how many males or females, or exactly what colors will be born. We sell our puppies primarily based on their superior genetics and the extremely high quality we have selected----from both the AKC Champion Poodle lines, and AKC Champion Cocker lines we have so carefully sought in every Cocker and Poodle we breed. Since this is our unique primary focus, we do not make guarantees based on color selection. We have selected some BEAUTIFULLY colored girls, and should have lots of variety to offer, however, the puppies in the litter when your turn comes are what you will have to select from, in the order of deposits received. If there are not enough puppies in the litter for deposits placed, you will be transferred----in order of deposit----to the next litter.
      When you deposit on one of our puppies before birth, also note that you are not depositing on a certain breeding----you are depositing on our program. Knowing for certain the order in which our females will come into heat, have a successful breeding, and deliver and raise healthy pups is not something that we will know ahead of time. Therefore, our pre-birth deposit list is simply a list that we will work from, in order, when our next litter of exceptional quality pups are born. Rest assured, all of our dogs meet the same strict criteria, and whoever your pup's parents are, you can absolutely count on the fact that both parents meet the standards that set us apart from every other Cockapoo breeder known to us.
      As soon as we have a breeding, all on our deposit list will be contacted with a due date and take home time. When puppies are born, we will update everyone and send pictures with information on the litter. This is when you will have an idea of whether or not there are enough pups in the current litter for you, or if you will move up in the selection order and be waiting for next time. We will then update all those who will receive a pup with pictures of each individual puppy of their gender choice weekly. Specific selection of puppies begins at 3 weeks old, in order of deposits received. This helps us make sure all puppies are going and growing strong before selection, and allows you to see pictures of and get a feel for each puppy. We also choose 3 weeks so that they are moving around and you can see pictures with their eyes open.
      In order to lock in your puppy selection, we require a payment of $700 within 24 hours of selecting. This will combine with your $500 deposit toward the total price of your puppy. This helps us to be confident in your commitment to be a family for your new puppy. Our first commitment is to our puppies, and we must make sure that they have a home to go to!
      From the 4 week mark on, your weekly pictures will be focused on your new little one!
