Our Puppy Buying Process

We have an ongoing waiting list for our Scottish Terrier puppies that is updated weekly. Please email us at mcwilliamsscots@gmail.com to request to be added to the list. Please expect a wait time of 6-12 months once you are added to the list. 

Once we have a confirmed pregnancy, we will email everyone on our waiting list to let you know that puppies are expected soon. At this time, we will ask everyone to confirm their interest, just to make sure our list is up-to-date. Anyone who does not respond within a few days will be removed from the list.

We will message those on our waiting list within 1-2 weeks of the puppies’ birth. At this time a non-refundable deposit is required to hold your spot in line. We give 2 weeks to receive the deposit from the time that we contact you. If a deposit has not been received at the end of the 2 weeks, we will move on to the next person on the waiting list. We do accept checks for the deposit.

We will regularly post pictures on our website and share them on social media. We will label each puppy as Boy #1, Girl #1, etc. Please use these photos to help choose a puppy. We give puppy choice preference to the priority on the list.

Puppies can go home to their new families between 9-10 weeks. We do require that puppies be picked up, in-person. The balance is due at the time of pickup, IN CASH. No checks will be accepted for final payment.
