I do not wait to name blast the breeder, but I assure you they are a very reputable breeder with a 2 year wait list. I spoke with the breeder and I feel their breeding program fits what I want in a dog. I am very new to this whole "reputable breeder" thing. I have not had many breeders reply, which is OK, I understand with all things considering. But the prices seem to be the highest i've seen so far (seen another for like $3,250). And I get wanting to have serious inquiries only on their waitlist. But it seems odd to have a $100 deposit just to be put on a waitlist? And it'd be BEFORE I fill out a puppy questioner (I guess you can say i'm buying an application for $100) I guess I just want to know if this is normal..? Do breeders tend to do this?
