Adopting a Puppy
A fellow professional Australian Labradoodle breeder, said something to me that has proven to be very true and wise. I'd like to pass this nugget of wisdom on to you. She said "Not all breeders are what they seem, so do your research". This is very good advice. After all, you are bringing a new family member into your life. You want to make sure you've selected a puppy from a caring and responsible breeder that pays close attention not solely to good looks but also to temperament, breed standards and most importantly health. A breeder who has cared for the puppies as if they were going to join her/his own family.
*Check out our blog for a comprehensive plan to choose a quality breeder, you'll also find a PDF of the form I use under the tab "Adopting a Puppy" then "Adopting A Puppy PDFs"
Currently,we plan two litters a year (sometimes we can do 3, but not always) and only accept 8 to 10 puppy reservations and 2 puppy guardian home reservations. These are the steps once you decide you would like to adopt a puppy from us:
1) Fill Out A Puppy Application Below
It's very important that we place our babies in families that will love them and care for them. If you decide to reserve a puppy, please fill out the application below. We want to get to know as much as we can from our babies prospective future families.
2)Your Puppy Application Needs To Be Approved.
Once I receive your application I will review it and contact you between 1 to 3 days.
3) After Your Application Has Been Approved It's Time To Pay The Initial $300 deposit.
If your application has been approved then its time to pay the $300 initial deposit. Please know, I am only able to reserve a puppy after the deposit has been paid. If we are unable to provide you with a puppy from this year's litters due to litter size (or any other circumstances), we will either refund your deposit or give you the option of staying in the waiting list for the next litter , this would be your choice. However, if the applicant just changes their mind or circumstances change, the deposit will not be refunded ,as most likely, I would have had to turn down other prospective families in order to hold your reservation. I have no interest in keeping your money. This is not a source of income for us, it is a labor of love. However, if you are committed to buying a puppy from us and you choose to reserve a puppy, I will have to turn away other prospective families. The deposit also ensures I get only serious inquiries.
4) Pay The Rest Of The Balance. The rest of the balance can be paid in two installments. The first one when the puppies turn 4 weeks old. The second one when the puppies turn 6 weeks old
What to expect after your name is in the waiting list-
*Once you place an initial deposit for a puppy I will send you a copy of the puppy sales contract, and spay/neuter contract for your review. These need to be signed and sent back by the time the first half of payment is due.
*Once pregnancy is confirmed, I will contact you and let you know when is the expected due date.
*I will be posting weekly pictures of the puppies in our Facebook page and in Instagram.
*Puppy selection will be done during the 5th week after the puppies birth. Please know we always reserve the right to have pick of 2 puppies from each litter.
*Please know all our puppies live in our home. We will schedule a mutually convenient time during the 5th week after their birth, for you to visit the puppies. We will schedule at least one visit per family. (In order to follow guidelines and keep everyone healthy, due to coronavirus national emergency, we will not be able to set up a visit during the pandemic, we will do videos instead)
*Puppies will be ready to join their new homes when they are between 8 to 10 weeks old.
Pick up and delivery options-
*Pick up will be at our home
*We may be able to deliver to other states. Delivery would incur an extra fee. Please know, delivery is not always available and the prices will vary depending on ticket prices. *Another option would be, you are welcome to fly to Seattle/Tacoma airport where someone from our team would pick you up, bring you to our home, deliver the puppy and bring you back to the airport that same day.
*Shipping of our puppies would be considered on a case by case basis. Only non stop flights with reputable airlines will be considered acceptable. Temperature on both departure and arrival cities will be taken into consideration when deciding if shipping would be acceptable. Please know, we prefer to either have pick up at our home or fly with our puppies in cabin and hand deliver them. However, we realize this is not always possible. Know that we will give priority to puppy applicants that are willing to pick up at our home or choose to have the puppy hand delivered, as we really do not like to ship our pups.
