HOW TO ADOPT
So, you are considering a puppy and have found Bittersweet Farm! It is our honor that you have found us and are considering adding one of our puppies to your home.
The first thing we suggest for all potential puppy owners is that you take the time to become educated about our fabulous Goldendoodles. You need to read About the Breed page and look at the hundreds of pictures in our Alumni album. Once you decide that you want one of our special little Goldendoodle puppies, you need to decide which coat type you like (curly vs. fluffy/shaggy). You also need to decide which gender you prefer. Then you need to learn about the different generations so you can choose the type that best suits your needs.
To be added to our Waitlist, please complete the Puppy Application that you will find under the "Forms" tab, and return it to us via mail along with the deposit of $250.00. A personal check or money order is fine for your deposit. After your puppy application and deposit are received, your application will be reviewed. If you are approved, you will then be added to the Waitlist. We reserve the right to deny an application for any reason. These puppies are our "babies" and we are a bit fussy about the homes that they go to. We are sure as a dog lover yourself, you can totally understand our policy.
We highly suggest a visit to the farm prior to submitting your application to see how we raise our puppies and to meet us. We like to get to know our future puppy owners and establish a good working relationship to find you the perfect puppy. You are welcome to call to set up a convenient time to come by for a visit.
Your place in line for choosing a male or female puppy will be in the order that we receive your puppy application and deposit. Please be sure to designate male or female and what generation you prefer. We do ask that you decide the sex and generation, so that we can determine availability for other families.
We will notify you soon after a litter is born. The Puppy Choosing Day is set at that time and an appointment will be made for you to choose your puppy from the litter when they are 6-7 weeks of age. You take your puppy home at 8 weeks of age. The balance due on your puppy is made at the time you pick up your puppy and we respectfully request that final payment be made by bank check, money order or cash. Unfortunately, a few bad personal checks have forced this policy.
We are happy to talk with you in detail, so that we are both comfortable with each other & know it is the right fit between us. Feel free to call anytime!
