In addition they also have OFA certificates for their  Heart, Eyes (by the ophthalmologist), Thyroid, Patellas and in good overall health.

How the Pick Order/ Deposit process works

Red-Dawn has been blessed with many referrals and repeat puppy buyers. Consequently depositors may have to wait 4-12 months for a puppy based on how often we have a litter. God continues to bless us with healthy puppies, but we have no control over what mothers are able to get pregnant or how many puppies are born in each litter. Our mother dogs are pets first and we limit the amount of litters each girl has.


Please fill out a Puppy Application

We review your answers on the Puppy Application and contact you by phone or email.

After deciding if a Red-Dawn puppy is a good choice for your home, you may place a $500 deposit. This puts you on our master deposit list.



Depositors receive notifications of litters when they are born. You tell us when you see a litter you want a puppy from.

Depositors are placed on a litter of interest in the order of seniority of deposits received. The more litters that pass the higher a depositors pick order seniority rises on a future litter. You may not have a high enough seniority of deposit to be on the first litter of interest.

Depositors are given 2 weeks to respond after a litter is announced. After the 2 week deadline we establish a pick order for that litter (based on the seniority of deposits). If you are not happy with your pick number for your litter of interest, you may move off that litter and wait on a future litter of interest.


Choices of puppies are made at 8 weeks of age and puppies go home on that day. Appointments are usually on Thursday & Friday. Depositors are given a 1 hour appointment in order of their pick order for that litter. Choice of puppy can be made in person or over the phone/videos. On puppy choosing day we help you make the choice by discussing each puppy’s Volhard temperament test results and our opinion of each pup’s temperament after living with them.  If a good choice is not available in that litter we will forward your deposit to a future litter. Deposits are nonrefundable but they are transferable to future litters.
