Terms of Service

Yes, we require a $200 deposit to hold your chosen puppy until 8 weeks of age or the delivery of your puppy occurs.  The deposit ensures that you are truly committed to adopting a puppy from us.  We have had multiple instances in the past of families telling us they wanted a puppy, then never contacting us again.  We have even taken a puppy to meet his new family, then brought him back home with us due to the person not returning phone calls or texts when it was time to meet.

We will no longer hold any puppies without a deposit.  Our deposits are non-refundable and will hold your chosen puppy until 8 weeks of age or until delivery occurs.

We have updated our previous policy as of 4/1/22 to allow you to move your deposit to a future litter should life situations cause you to be unable to adopt your puppy as previously agreed upon. Your deposit will be good for any future litter for 12 months from the date of your deposit.

Once we receive your deposit on an upcoming or existing litter, you will be notified of the confirmed pregnancy and birth of the puppies.  We always put the health and well-being of our mothers and babies first.  Within the first 1-2 weeks of birth, we will send you a group picture of the male/female puppies unless the mother becomes overly distressed.  Every 1-2 weeks up to age 4-5 weeks we will continue to send updated group pictures of the puppies.  At the age of 5-6 weeks, you will be allowed to choose your puppy through individual pictures, videos, or in-person when able.  Puppies are chosen in the order the deposit is received.  The first pick will choose his/her puppy, then the process will continue until all the puppies have been chosen.  After your individual puppy is chosen, we will send a weekly picture and/or update of your puppy until he/she goes to their new home at the age of 8 weeks.

Yes, we offer a one-year health guarantee on all our puppies covering serious or life-threatening genetic or congenital disorders.  Our health guarantee begins with an individual puppy check by a licensed veterinarian before going to his/her new home.  Once you receive your puppy, you are required to have your puppy examined by your veterinarian within 2-3 days.  Once we receive a clean bill of health from your veterinarian, the health guarantee will continue until your puppy’s first birthday.  You will receive a signed copy of our health guarantee when you receive your puppy.  You can find a copy of our health guarantee on the website.  Occasionally, we are required to drop our prices on our puppies when they become significantly older than 8 weeks.   Should we drop any of our puppies to under $1000, we will no longer offer a health guarantee.

We prefer our puppies to go to loving pet homes.  We provide AKC pet registration for our Golden Retrievers and Poodles.  We will occasionally offer full, unlimited AKC registration (to approved pre-screened homes only) for an additional fee.

Airway Shipping

Yes, we offer nationwide airway shipping through Runway Pets.  Our puppies will ship from the Bill and Hillary Clinton National Airport in Little Rock, Arkansas.  Shipping costs will vary based on current airline fees but costs usually run around $450-$550.  The cost of shipping will include a travel crate that is yours to keep.  Puppies must be 8 weeks or older for airway shipping.

Ground Shipping

We also provide ground shipping when needed.  We use individuals that will pick up your puppy from our house and deliver it to your house or selected location.  Ground shipping costs will vary based on the distance and flexibility of shipping dates.  Puppies must be 8 weeks or older for ground shipping.

Local Pickup

We also offer local pickup.  We often meet our families in various locations to help with traveling out-of-state or longer distances.  Often, we will be willing to meet in Little Rock, Russellville, or Harrison, Arkansas.  We have also met people in Branson, Missouri or Springdale, Arkansas when able.

Deposits can be paid through Venmo, Cash App (formerly Square Cash), PayPal, or credit card.

For the remaining balance due, our preferred method of payment is cash.  We do not take checks or cashier’s checks of any kind.  We also take Venmo and Cash App (which do not require a convenience fee), PayPal and credit cards.

Please note that PayPal and credit cards will have an added 4% convenience fee in addition to the cost of your adoption fees.

The remaining balance of your puppy – minus the deposit – will be due when you receive your puppy on or after 8 weeks of age.  Your $200 deposit counts toward the total cost.  We also require that any puppies being shipped by ground or air be paid for in full along with the shipping costs upon confirmation of the airline or ground shipment booking.

You will receive the following with your new puppy:

  • A full health record of all vaccinations. preventatives, and deworming medications are given since birth.
  • A signed vet check by a licensed veterinarian
  • AKC limited pet registration papers with golden retrievers or poodles
  • A Welcome Puppy Pack to include a toy or blanket with a littermate’s scent to help with transitioning to the new home along with a small collar and leash.
  • Small ziplock bag of your puppy’s current food.
  • Signed health guarantee when applicable and receipt of purchase.
  • Lifetime support for your puppy. We are available to answer any questions or concerns you have with your new puppy.  We love puppy updates and pictures as your puppy grows.  We love our puppies and miss them when they go to their new families.

Unfortunately, the American Kennel Club (AKC) views any doodle as a “designer breed” and does not allow AKC registration of Goldendoodles, Labradoodles, or Aussiedoodles at this time.
