Full Size Miniature/Sm Medium Australian Labradoodle Litter – due March 2021
Golds, chocolates and blacks, expected size 20 pounds
Introducing Dorrie! Dorrie is a sweet natured girl who has a zest for life and has an all around great personality. She lives in a guardian home and competes in 4 H with their daughter, which is great fun for both of them. She’s a lovely full sized mini with a beautiful fleece coat and we are excited that she has passed her health testing with good results.
I’ve chosen to have Clark sire this litter for us this time. Clark is a confident, sweet natured boy with lovely boning and structure. He’s a friendly boy and he has just a touch of that “I’m cool” attitude about him. He carries for chocolate and gold so we should see a colourful litter from them. He weighs 22 pounds and Dorrie is around 20 pounds, so we should see puppies finishing out around that size. This litter would be graded as multigen Australian Labradoodles. Dorrie had nine puppies last time, so we will see what she has this time… This litter list is full and if she has more puppies, we will make them available after they are born.
Thank you to all the families who emailed wanting to be on Dorrie’s litter list. I wish we were able to work magic… But I will pre post a couple more litters for the summertime, most likely after Dorrie’s litter is born, so later in April or into May. That will be put on the Expected Litters Page as usual.
Reservations for this litter:
- The Tam family
- The Vrooman family
- The Craig family
- The Shaw family
- The Holm family
This litter list is full, but the info below is an “fyi” for families to understand how we have been doing things during covid : )
This is our last planned litter for spring this year. This litter list will be opened Jan 29 2021 at 10am pacific standard time.
Unfortunately, due to such high demand for puppies, the former, usual and much more pleasant way of doing things via personal visit and phone conversation has just become unworkable. We’d open a litter list and the phone would ring busy for most folk and that just wasn’t working. And I’m not inclined to take a two year waiting list of reservation fees at this time. So until things resume a more normal pace post covid, this is what we have come up with:
When a litter list opens, the reservations for this litter list will be determined by date/time stamp via email. You will need to have a current puppy adoption form filled out to us before that date as I will refer to that. Our form has recently had a couple of added fields to it, so please send us a new one.
Families who would like to be added to this litter list will send me an ’email letter of intent’ on or after that date/time, stating that they would like to be added to this list. Please put “Dorrie’s Litter” in the header so that I can do a gmail sort. If you do not put that in the header, I may miss your email and I will not rearrange the order of the list after, if your email is missed. As the list opens at 10am, emails sent earlier than that will NOT be considered. Gmail will do the sorting of that for me!
I will contact the successful families and do a phone interview. Within a few days of the litter list opening, the families who are successful will have their names posted onto this litter page. I will accept eight names for Dorrie’s litter. Because this litter is bred already, we will require $1500 towards the purchase price to be placed on this litter list. A second payment will be invoiced when the babies are born and the final amount will be due when the puppies are around seven weeks old.
While I do understand that families have differing preferences regarding colour, coat type, boy or girl, if a family is narrowly specific, it reduces the chance that there will be a puppy that meets that description and so I encourage families to be open to male and female and that families be open to a range of colours. By far, activity level and temperament are the best way to determine a good fit for a family pet. Do not get a dog more active than yourself on a daily basis, and do not get a puppy that is more determined (stubborn) than you!
