Re: Deposits in advance?

Depends on the breeder. I think most Tamaskan breeders ask deposits in advance, but some will wait until pregnancy is confirmed or the litter is born.

If any of the cream pups from Ziva x Avak are used for breeding they must be tested by MyDogDNA, since the NTC made this a requirement for breeding dogs (registered after 1-10-2013). Hopefully by that time spotting is also included, but looking at the parents/grandparents and siblings I doubt these ...
