Meet Goldie
Micro-Mini Size Goldendoodle
Red Wavy Coat

Goldie is about a year and a half old and just had her first litter of beautiful red puppies! She is very sweet, very loving and I think she would be best as the only doggie in the home. She is crate trained, potty trained and has no bad habits….yet…haha. She is however a bit food aggressive when other dogs come near her bowl. Goldie will give her new family a lifetime of kisses.

Meet Juno
Mini Size Goldendoodle
Red Wavy Coat

Juno was born on Sept 1, 2021 so she is still very much a puppy  and loves playing with toys and chewing on bones but she can be a bit aggressive toward other dogs if they try to take her ‘possessions’ or food. Because of this I think she might do best in a home that does not have other dogs. In spite of this, I have to say that she does like to play with other dogs, running, jumping and wrestling, but toys and food tend to be her ‘bone of contention’!

Juno is a wonderful dog and has few bad habits other than her possession issue….well, she does love to destroy paper towels….haha. She is very much a lover and wants to spend quiet time just being with me and of course she does not shed.

Meet Moose
Small Standard Size Bernedoodle
Tri-Color Merle Wavy Coat

Moose is a 2.5 year old small standard (50#) neutered bernedoodle. He is a beautiful animal with a tri-colored coat of black, brown and white in the classic pattern of the Bernese Mt. Dog plus he has blue merle markings, very unique. I received Moose from his breeder when he was three months old. From the beginning I realized he was shy around people except for me.

I thought however that he would overcome his shyness once I started to socialize him. Yet, here I am, 2 years later, 3 trainers later, and Moose’s personality hasn’t changed. The recommendation from the last behaviorist ‘trainer’ was to not try and socialize him but let him be himself and don’t force him to interact with people unless he wants to.

Not aggressive
Good with other dogs
Doesn’t shed
Crate trained/potty trained/lease trained
Plus knows other commands, i.e., sit, etc.
He’s ok at the vet and at the groomers

Won’t interact with people
Barks at times*
Counter surfs for food*
These traits are fixable

Bottom Line
Moose needs to be with people that won’t expect him to be lovable with others except for the one person he considers his ‘Alpha’. He has tons of love to give and wants to share his life within the right environment. Ideally, I wish for him a family with only one person or perhaps a couple. Unfortunately, I really can’t keep him. If any of you know of someone that might welcome a dog like Moose into their life please pass along my information as I would love to speak with them.

Thank you for any help you can give to me and Moose

What is the Guardian Program?

Because I want my breeding dogs to have wonderful homes just like our puppies, I offer a guardianship program.

Guardian dogs are placed with loving families free-of-charge so they can have normal, happy home lives while still providing me with beautiful puppies. After their breeding contracts are up, the dogs are spayed/neutered and retired to continue living their lives with their forever families, no longer just guardians.

Guardian homes cannot be further away than a one hour drive from Scottsdale/Cave Creek area.

The Guardian Process

I interview potential guardians first by phone and then personally either in my home or theirs. Once a family is accepted into the program, a puppy I choose for breeding is given to them to raise.

My females are usually bred once per year and retired when they are between 5-6 years old. My males I use a lot more often than the females for obvious reasons. And they are retired like the females around 5-6 years of age.

Once pregnant, all female dogs will be returned to Breeder 1 week before due date for whelping (birthing). The female will remain with the me for 5-6 weeks while the puppies are nursed and finally weaned. The guardian family is welcomed to come visit during the weeks that ‘momma’ is with me. Or the guardian may opt to keep momma and pups for an agreed upon time span.

All food, grooming, general care, and veterinary expenses are the responsibility of the guardian. Any expenses related to the breeding and pregnancies of the guardian dogs are the responsibility of Breeder, including additional food and supplies the guardian requires during the pregnancy or after if momma and pups remain with her family.
