Guide to choosing the size you want. Size is measured at the withers (back of the neck where the points of the shoulder blades meet) which is the highest fixed point. The head moves up and down so is not a reliable guide! Suggestion: If you're unsure, run a tape or ruler from the floor up your leg to where you would like your dog's BACK to come to. Remember that size variations can occur in all living creatures.
At Rutlands we are committed to choosing best possible matched puppy to you and your family. So it is never a case of first in first served. But if a puppy is just right for you and others on the wait list too, then the date the confirming deposit was paid, determines who is offered that puppy first. It's the best way we can think of to be fair to everyone
