Deposit Policies

Pre-Pregnancy Deposit Policy:

  • Pre-pregnancy deposit $500, then the other $300 is due when pups are born

I select four families, 2 male and 2 female, and offer the opportunity to place a pre-pregnancy deposits.  No more deposits will be accepted until after the puppies are born.  All deposits are non-refundable unless my mama doesn’t get pregnant when she’s bred.

In order to be considered for one of these pre-pregnancy deposits you must complete the puppy application found on the home page.

For more information, message me on our Facebook (@IntegrityGoldenRetrievers) or email me, Christine, at:

After the puppies are born –  The pre-approved wait list will receive a personal email or txt once the puppies are born notifying you as to whether or not a puppy is available for you.  If there are any questions regarding availability and the criteria I use to determine who is offered an IGR pup, contact me via Facebook messenger (@IntegrityGoldenRetrievers) or email (

I will accept deposits three ways:  Venmo, PayPal or regular mail.

Commitment Deposit Policy:

As IGR grows and I receive more and more applications it’s becoming more challenging to sort through and communicate with everyone to determine who is truly committed to getting an IGR pup and who sorta-kinda wants one or is still looking elsewhere.

I’ve decided to implement what I’m calling a Commitment Deposit.  $100 – that’s it.  Once your application is approved, you will be asked if you want to submit a $100 deposit (that will be applied to the price of your future pup).  This deposit indicates you want an IGR pup, you are willing to wait for whichever litter has availability and/or are the parents that you want and/or is the timing you want.

  • This Commitment Deposit is non-refundable.
  • This Commitment Deposit can be applied to any litter I have availability.
  • This Commitment Deposit will be tracked on my spreadsheet.

By placing a Commitment Deposit, you will also be on my “Commitment List” and will be the first group of people I contact if I have someone back out from a pup in a litter.  I cannot guarantee any particular litter, but I can say you will also be the ones contacted first when it’s time to place those ‘pre-pregnancy’ deposits.  If you choose not to place a “Commitment Deposit” that’s totally fine, you’ll still be on my wait list, but you won’t be in the first group I contact to say “I have a puppy available”.

Any questions – just ask.  I love answering questions.

Integrity Golden Retrievers ALWAYS reserves the right to retain 1st pick male and 1st pick female from every litter and at any point in time during the raising of the litter.

We reserve the right to refuse to sell a puppy to anyone, at any time (even after a deposit is placed), for any reason.

If a deposit has been placed and IGR determines to not sell a puppy to said family, that deposit will be returned.
