**I will be starting waiting lists for these planned breedings. Best to email me until I resolve my landline issue. nordostenkennel@comcast.net  

Thank you,


I will start a waiting list once the breeding pairs have been bred. So check the site frequently. Once the pregnancy has been confirmed, $100.00 (non-refundable) deposits are accepted to reserve a pup. Puppies are not held without a deposit. Pup picks are assigned in the order of waiting list and deposits received. If you don't feel comfortable placing a deposit before the pups are born, you can request a call back if there are more pups then deposits received. Unforseen things can happen, I cannot control mother nature, therefore, deposits can be rolled over to another litter. Call Cathy for more info. 978-432-1235
