A deposit before the litter is on the ground isn't unusual in my area. Or with some reputable breeders elsewhere. Most breeders have a rough idea of litter size at ultrasound and have a more firm determination upon xray. And in some highly sought after breedings, they tend to use a deposit to weed out the not so serious people.
With that said, I didn't take deposits until the pups were a few weeks old even.
I think I'm curious about what Texas breeder this photo came from? I can't imagine they would be too happy.
