Is it okay to be on more than one waiting list?

I want to make sure that i get a puppy that fits our personality, lifestyle. So is it okay to be on one more waiting list where i can pick and choose, (also the timing of the birth). Do breeders require a down payment or something up front to hold our place on the list?

It depends.

I think that it's okay to be on multiple mailing lists provided you are up front with each breeder AND honest about the fact that you are on more than one list. When you narrow it to one litter, you need to let the other breeders know right then- not at 6 weeks when you've been telling them since the puppies were born that you were definitely waiting for them to make their picks.
