|Cypress Farm Kennel: Preferred Waiting List (PWL)
|Since January of 2017 Cypress Farm Kennel (CFK) no longer hosts a "No Obligation" waiting list.
In an effort to provide better communication, greater detail about upcoming litters, and a more approximate time line for available puppies to
the families on the list, we have converted to a self-designed "Preferred Waiting List”, otherwise noted as the "PWL". The genetic
diversity of our Boston Terriers can produce any number of purebred puppies with varying coat color, markings, and/or eye color in each
litter. It is not a breeding goal of Cypress Farm Kennel to produce specific colors or entire litters of like colored puppies so please understand
that there is almost always an average wait time of six months to one year from date of reserving a place on our PWL until a puppy may be
available. We have found that this method of filing our waiting list has helped to reduce the overwhelming inquiries of the past. We are so
appreciative of all of the wonderful families in this world interested in owning a Cypress Farm Kennel Boston Terrier. We owe it to all of those
on our list to do better which is the main objective of our PWL. With the extensive information provided below, if you take the time to read it
carefully and in entirety, we believe all of your questions about our waiting list should be answered and concerns alleviated.

|The first step to adding a Cypress Farm Kennel puppy to your family is to contact us directly to confirm availability of a place on the PWL. To do so
please send an email with subject line "AVAILABILITY" to email@example.com OR you can complete the form on the bottom of this page.
If there is an opening, a formal puppy application will be required for consideration. We will provide a direct link to the puppy application to you
upon contact. Once the application is received and reviewed an email will be sent letting the applicant know if the initial application has been
approved or declined. If approved the email will also inquire as to an appropriate time to conduct a phone interview. This interview is imperative
for both breeder and prospective puppy family to ask any and all questions. It's the perfect time to get to know each other!
Once the phone interview has concluded and the decision is agreed upon to move forward with reserving a place on the PWL a reservation
fee of $100 is required. We will require a signed reservation agreement which will be provided via email at the conclusion of the phone
interview. The reservation fee can only be paid via PayPal. You do not have to have a PayPal account to use PayPal's service. All that is needed is
a credit/debit card if you don't have an account. We will send a formal, detailed invoice for payment. The reservation fee is applicable to the $500
deposit fee that is placed to reserve your pick puppy when one is available. This means that when a family on the PWL selects an available puppy
they will owe $400 to hold their pick puppy until the balance is due. The reservation agreement is a legally binding, single page contract that in
short is an agreement that this article was read to completion and understood without question. The reservation will not be locked in place until
we receive a signed hard-copy of the reservation agreement and the fee is paid. The reservation agreement must be received in hand by CFK,
postmarked within 10 days of payment of invoice, or reservation fee will be forfeited to CFK without reservation.
We encourage the families on the PWL to use the wait time for a Cypress Farm Kennel puppy wisely by continuing research not only about the
breed, but looking into other breeders as well. It is best to know all available options. In the event a family decides to purchase a puppy from
another breeder and wants to revoke their reservation on the CFK PWL, the reservation fee will NOT be refunded. If the family wants to retain
their reservation on our PWL after purchasing a puppy from another breeder and in the future get a CFK puppy, as long as the guidelines of this
PWL are followed that is fine. However a puppy will not be made available to a home with opposite sex, intact dogs. This means that if you are on
our list for a girl puppy and you get a boy puppy from another breeder, a girl puppy will not be made available to you until the male puppy is altered
(neutered). This must be done to avoid any accidental breeding. Proof of alteration for dogs owned by a family may be requested before approval
to make a reservation or purchase of a puppy is granted. On rare occurrences a home visit may be required. If a home visit is not agreeable,
kindly do not contact us about owning a CFK puppy as this guideline will not waiver.
|themselves from the list they will not be refunded. If CFK finds that a reservation holder has lied about anything on their application, OR about
anything during their phone interview at any stage of the wait period, CFK reserves the right to refuse reservation and thus the fee is forfeited to
CFK. If CFK discontinues raising Boston Terriers all reservation holders will be refunded $100 by way of PayPal.
Please read our FAQs page of our website before proceeding with seeking placement on the PWL.
Don't forget to Google Cypress Farm Kennel!
Be diligent in your research and leave no stone unturned. We at CFK want our families to be 100% positive know confidently that they want to
invest financially on being placed on our PWL before starting the process of investing time interviewing with us. Let us know if you have any
questions about anything you find. The word most associated with us by previous puppy buyers is TRANSPARENT. We do not hide anything or lie
to anyone. Feel free to ask us anything.
Reservation number, or place on the waiting list, will be given to you at that time you pay to claim your spot. It will be noted on your PayPal
invoice. As puppies become available and are placed, you will move up the PWL until eventually it is your turn to choose a puppy. However know
that you don't have to be a number one reservation holder for it to be your turn to get a Cypress puppy. Lots of decisions of families ahead of you
on the list influence who has the opportunity to choose an available puppy. Those reservation holders of male #'s 1-3 may need to wait for
whatever reason making it #4's lucky day to get the only male in a litter. Please understand that having #1 position does not guarantee having
pick of the litter. Cypress Farm Kennel reserves the right to keep any puppy from any litter we produce. A puppy is only ever made “available”
and is defined herein as a puppy that is presented for placement to the PWL after initial evaluation concludes CFK will not be keeping it. If we
choose to keep two puppies, we will. We won't entertain any grief about it our decision to do so. This is our right as the breeder of the litter. We
do not raise Boston Terriers as our source of income, we do so to impact the Colored Boston Terrier breed in a positive light because we love
the breed so much. We can't continue to better our program unless we keep the best of the best to further the next generation of our bloodlines.
If all (10) PWL Male reservation holders have seen the available puppies and there is still an available male we will contact all (10) PWL Female
reservation holders in a single group email about the puppy even though it doesn't fit their desired sex per application and interview. Some
people are fine with either sex, but the PWL only allows for one reservation at a time per family. There will be 24 hours given for reply of interest
to the group email sent. If no PWL Female reservation holders are interested in the little boy we will then make a post on Facebook about the
puppy's availability. We will reply to private messages of interest with a link to our puppy application as there will no longer be a public puppy
application. We have decided to remove it from public access on our website in an effort to deter impulse puppy shopping families. From time to
time we do have an available puppy upon initial contact, but please do not expect that you will contact us today and get a puppy
The reservation on the PWL will hold for 2 years from the date payment of PayPal invoice for reservation fee is received by CFK. After the time
period has expired the reservation holder can request their reservation fee of $100 be refunded via PayPal within 10 days from 2 year date OR
the family can choose to remain on the list for the first available puppy of either sex. If the first available puppy is not what the reservation holder
wants, place on the PWL is forfeited and reservation fee will not be refunded.
The names and placement on the PWL will not be made public. After each litter, reservation holders will be notified via email or private message
of their current placement on the list. We do not always publicly announce litters. Those on the waiting list will be exclusive to the information of
CFK breedings, upcoming litters, and arrival of puppies before anyone else. Our aim is to notify families of puppies having been born by the time
the puppies are two weeks of age. Most often we begin accepting deposits on available puppies at two weeks of age, but because it sometimes
takes us longer to determine whether or not we will be keeping a puppy from a litter this is not guaranteed.
Two years ago we did away with "scaled pricing lists". Scaled pricing lists are common to most breeders as
they charge more for certain colors or sex of puppies. We view all of our puppies as equal regardless of
color, sex, or markings. For this reason we have one set price for our puppies. All puppies are placed as
pets without breeding rights (legally binding alteration contract) for $2000. For further details about the
strenuous yet successful puppy rearing regimen we are implementing in our program please see this LINK.
If everything you've just read is agreeable and you would like to move forward, please complete the form below or email us at
firstname.lastname@example.org You should receive a response within 10 days of submission. We are working on bettering our response time, but
can't guarantee that life will comply. We look forward to hearing from you!
