I have just been asked. Why? I don't have a waiting list. I don't believe in people putting down a deposit for a baby that isn't born yet. I have found in the past, clients on my waiting list have wandered off and brought somewhere else. When clients want a baby, they don't want to wait.
Breeders are pocketing money as people leave a non-refundable deposit for a baby that isn't born yet and the client sometimes will wander off and buy somewhere else. The breeder than has made some easy money. I don't believe it is ethical but that is my view.
