Default boxer puppies

I have two litters of AKC registered boxers coming in about Novemberish,
they are professionally bread and nurtured, I am asking a $100 reservation
fee which is non-refundable, though it counts toward the $750 price at the
time of delivery.

You don't sound professional when you say "bread" instead of "bred". What
exactly is a professionally bred litter? Do you show the bitches in
conformation and have titles on them? How about the sires? Are they owned
by others and titled or are they yours?

I am asking a $100 reservation
fee which is non-refundable, though it counts toward the $750 price at the
time of delivery.


Are the sire and dam OFA good or excellent, hypothyroid negative, no history
in the last 5 generations of cardiomyopathy, SAS, serious murmur or other
cardiac issue that is prevalent in Boxers? Is there any history of cancer
in the last 5 generations in all lines involved?

If they are due in November, they haven't even been conceived. Or do you
mean they will be ready for sale in November? Then that means that you just
bred the parents, and it seems a bit premature to ask for a deposit,
considering you probably don't even know if the bitches are pregnant.
But that's neither here nor there. What I'd really like to know is what
makes these puppies worth $750. For that price, I can get a pet quality
puppy from a responsible breeder, so that is what I'd expect from you. I'm
thinking, though, that might not be the case, but I'll give you the benefit
of the doubt. So, if you could just answer the following questions:
1) What health tests have been conducted on the sire(s) and dam(s) of the
litters? I'm most interested in OFA, echocardiogram and holter test results,
but anything else you've done in addition would be fine too. Health testing
for prior generations would be appreciated too.
2) What conformation and/or working titles have you put on the sire(s) and
dam(s) to judge them suitable for breeding?
3) What led you to the decision to breed the specific dogs to each other?
Assets and faults you are looking to correct, etc.
4) What type of screening do you do for potential puppy buyers? Do you have
a sample questionairre and contract? Spay neuter contract? Require return to
breeder if they cannot be kept?

I have plenty more questions, but I won't bother you with those yet. I'm
interested in the above answers first. Oh, and in case you're too busy, I've
added what I expect your answers to be if you are not a responsible breeder,
but I hope you'll correct me:

1) Sire and dam have had vet checks*
2) None, I breed for pets**
3) Dogs have working reproductive systems
4) Anyone with cash can have a puppy, but I don't make them jump through
hoops to get a puppy. Once they get the dog, its theirs to do with what they
wish, but I won't take 'em back.

Thanks in advance!!

Christy

*These aren't health tests, BTW
**Pet buyers deserve healthy dogs that are conformationally correct and
sound, too.

What actions does a breeder such as yourself take to distinguish
themselves as "professional"? How does your style of professional
breeding differ from the professional breeding used by commercial puppy
producers who supply pet shops etc for retail sale?

I am asking a $100 reservation
fee which is non-refundable, though it counts toward the $750 price at the
time of delivery.


What are the qualities of these puppies that justify a person risking a
large "non-refundable" deposit? If they are "coming Novemberish" do they
even exist yet? Why would any intelligent educated buyer agree to
a non-refundable deposit?
