Interested in Adopting a Doodle?

Take your first step toward bringing home your brand new goldendoodle puppy! We have all the information you'll need to get started. If you have any questions about the adoption process, please reach out to us on our contact page. 

Adoption Process

Step One: Fill Out Your Application Form

Get started with your puppy adoption by filling out our application form and telling us a bit about yourself. Once you send in your application, we will reach out within a day or two to let you know if you've been approved.

 

All puppies are on a first-come, first-serve basis, puppies are not held until an approved application &  deposit is received. You may apply to adopt an available puppy or put your name on a waiting list for an upcoming litter. Puppies are chosen by families with deposits at 6-7 weeks old. Families will select their puppy in order of deposit date.

Step Two: Make Your Deposit

Now that your application has been approved, it's time to make your non-refundable deposit. Non-refundable Deposits are $400 per puppy regardless of size, color of coat type. Once your deposit is received your name will either go on the puppy you've selected or on a waitlist if you've chosen to select a puppy from a future litter. 

Deposits are done through PayPal by entering our email info@goldendoodlebabies.com

Step Three: Choosing Your Puppy

We provide a group puppy picture at 1-week old and individual puppy pictures at 3, 5 & 6.5 -weeks of age  for adoptive families with a deposit to choose from. For the safety of our puppies and adult dogs, we do not allow in-person selections. Once you have placed a deposit, we provide you with weekly photos as the grow and a video between 6 & 7 weeks old.

Step Four: Preparing to Bring Your Puppy Home

While we may have a general idea when your puppy will be born and when they'll be ready to go home, future litter dates tend to be up in the air a bit. The earlier you place your deposit, the more pups you will have to choose from. As we cannot guarantee litter sizes, we only take 4 male,  4 female deposits for a mini litter prior to being born and 3 male, 3 female deposits for a micro-petite litter prior to being born. We will open the deposits list back up once born for additional puppies.

While you're waiting for your puppy to be born or for the 8-week going home day, there are several things you can do to prepare to bring your puppy home.

  • Pick Out Your Puppy's Name

  • Purchase Puppy Supplies

  • Puppy Proof Your Home

  • Decide Where the Puppy's Crate Will Stay

  • Take a Puppy-Moon Vacation

Your puppy is also preparing to go home! During this time they are getting thorough vet exams, their first rounds of vaccinations and micro-chipped by a licensed/accredited veterinarian. We will include their vaccination records, micro-chip info and their 3-year health guarantee in your going home packet. 

Here is some extra information on preparing to bring your puppy home:

 

Step Five: Bringing Your Puppy Home

At 8 weeks old mini/medium puppies are ready to go home! At 9 weeks micro/petite puppies are ready to go home! Puppy pickups are by appointment only, and generally happen on Saturday afternoons. We'll alert you well in advance which Saturday to leave open. One week prior to pickup we'll assign you a block of time when you can pickup your puppy, meet us and get more information on grooming, care and veterinarian follow ups. The remaining final payment will be due upon pickup. We'll also have a pack of goodies to take home with you.
