We require a $515 puppy deposit to ensure that we have a Great Dane set aside for you. Please make sure that you have spoken with us prior to making any deposit! PayPal charges a 3% fee, which is included in both the deposit and full amount. We do not accept personal checks, sorry for the inconvenience. We do, however, accept the following forms of payment: PayPal (with an included 3% fee), cashier's checks, and U.S. currency.
