We base our allocations first and foremost on personality, as we truly believe that if your dog's temperament is a match, you and your pet will be much happier.  Curl, coloring, and size can change.  We cannot guarantee your pick of gender or color, but we will try to accommodate your preferences if it is also a good personality match.  Since we sell on a strict spay/neuter/sterilize contract, gender is less of a factor.  Allocations will occur only after temperament testing, near 8 weeks of age, as more accurate testing is expected with older puppies.  I understand and agree with your allocation protocol:   YesNo
