Fees and Payment Methods


The average cost of our puppies is $1800.  Depending on the litter, time of year and other variables, we occasionally have special pricing available. We occasionally offer one of our adult dogs who is retiring from our breeding program.  Adoption fees for retiring adults vary.    

The deposit to reserve a puppy is $250 (effective 4/1/23) and is due at the time your application is submitted. Your deposit will be applied to the total fee.  The balance is due when you pick up your puppy at eight weeks of age.  Please note that deposits are not refundable.  

For your deposit, you can make your payment via PayPal or mail a check or money order payable to Bittersweet Farm.  Please understand that we cannot accept a check made out to Bittersweet Doodles, as our bank will not accept it. You may pay in cash if you intend to stop by for a visit.  

Deposit payments ($250) should be mailed to Bittersweet Farm, 364 Lear Hill Rd, Newport, NH 03773  Your deposit amount is applied to the total fee due.  The remaining balance is due when you pick up your puppy.  


What if I can't pick up my puppy on the exact day he is ready to go home? 

Puppies are expected to go home when they turn eight weeks of age.  If you have a trip or vacation planned, we suggest you have a family member care for your puppy or wait to choose a puppy from a future litter .  It is not a good idea to board your puppy at such a young age (at least until he has received all his vaccinations).  If you absolutely have no one to watch your puppy, we can hold your puppy for you at a fee of $150.00 per week for a maximum of two weeks.  Keep in mind that puppies are much better at home with their families if at all possible.


Final payment

Cash payments only accepted for the final payment.  Checks are not accepted for final payment.
