Tesla, our "Super Mother" is happy to be having another litter. She's a small, cream-colored English Golden Retriever, who loves raising puppies (hers and anyone else's). She is currently being bred to Champ, our apricot-colored Moyen Poodle. These two have produced some fine puppies in the past, and we look forward to another beautiful litter from them. They will be cream to light red in color, have straight to wavy coats and sweet temperaments. The puppies should arrive mid-May, 2021 and be ready to go home mid-July, 2021.
Delta, a beautiful f1 English Goldendoodle with a calm, steady and loyal personality, had a lovely litter of 10 puppies with Bernie last year. This spring, she was bred to Sailor, our elegant, cream-colored, AKC Standard Poodle. Their puppies will have excellent temperaments, a range of coat-types, and very light coloring.
Lollipop, a super sweet English Golden Retriever with balanced structure, graceful movement and a gentle manner, has been bred to Kebo, a cream-colored Moyen Poodle who is equally good-looking and well behaved. While this is Lolly's first litter, Kebo has produced some of the most beautiful puppies we have ever had. We are excited to see what these two will produce.
Cajun, Kipper's 1/2 sister, is a strikingly beautiful English Golden Retriever with a calm, steady and loyal personality. She has passed all of her health tests. She has been bred to Champ, an apricot Moyen Poodle who produces amazing puppies. Their puppies will have excellent temperaments, soft, wavy coats, and should range in color from cream to light red.
Ladybug our affectionate, fun-loving and graceful English Golden Retriever has passed all of her health tests and has been bred to our intelligent, elegant and athletic Standard Poodle stud, Sailor. These puppies should be loving, beautiful, attentive and range in color from cream to white. We think they will make excellent service or therapy dogs if trained accordingly.
Kona, our small, gentle, well-mannered English Golden Retriever, had a wonderful litter with Champ last year. This spring or summer, she will be bred to Kebo for a litter of cream-white, medium Goldendoodle puppies. Kebo has produced some of the most beautiful puppies we have ever had, so we expect these babies to be quite striking. They will be breeding this spring, having puppies this summer and their puppies will be going home in late summer or early fall, 2021.
Shanty, our sweet medium-sized, cream-colored Poodle, will be bred to Bernie, our handsome, happy-go-lucky Golden Retriever stud, for a repeat of the wonderful litters they have produced in the past.. Puppies should be cream colored. They will be breeding this spring, having puppies this summer and their puppies will be going home in late summer or early fall, 2021.
Our priority is finding the best family for each puppy,
and selecting the best puppy for each family.
We keep a pool of approved families as well as a pool of families who are interested in applying for a puppy. These families are not listed according to when they got on our mailing list (below), when they applied, or when they were approved. Our process is unique, and it works!
PUPPY PLACING PROCESS
When we take reservations on a litter of puppies (usually when they are about 3 weeks old), we send an email to ALL of our approved families, asking who wants to reserve a puppy. When there are more interested families than puppies, we gather together, review the applications and select the families best matched to the litter at hand.
Frequently, there are puppies remaining after this first step. This is when we open the application. We send a link to everyone on the mailing list, and anyone else who inquires. Next, we gather to review the new applications. From those approved, we select families and take puppy reservations. Any approved families who were not able to reserve a puppy are then placed on our approved list for future litters.
