The Adoption Process
- Make a Deposit:
Our mini goldendoodles are $2,350 each. The refundable deposit fee is $500 and is payable via personal check, credit card (via PayPal by clicking the link below) or cash. The balance ($1,850) is due upon puppy adoption and can be paid via cash or credit card at pick-up. Because we strongly believe in responsible breeding, for every puppy sold, $100 will be donated to the Linda McNatt Animal Care and Adoption Center in Denton, TX to help care for dogs less fortunate than ours.
Litter pick is based on the order in which deposits are received. Denton Doodles always has the choice of first pick. Upon receipt of your deposit, we will ask you your gender preference and then notify you what your litter pick number is for that gender. In addition, we will e-mail you a guide that we encourage you to read that explains how to transport your puppy home, what to feed it and how often, required vet visits, housebreaking, grooming, training, etc. The guide also contains our contract that we will ask you to sign at adoption.
After receipt of your deposit and assignment of your litter pick number, you will be given the opportunity to make appointments to see the puppies prior to adoption date. During this visit, you will not be able to hold the puppies due to the potential spread of diseases such as parvo and distemper. You will, though, be able to watch them play in their glass-enclosed play area. You will be asked to remove your shoes prior to entering our house, again to prevent the potential spread of diseases.
We do adoptions on Saturdays. You will be provided with a one-hour time block on the day of adoption to select your puppy, depending on your litter pick number. For example, if you are litter pick #1, your arrival time will be 10 am; if you are litter pick #2, your arrival time will be 11 am, and so forth. The puppies of your selected gender will be available for you to choose from. If you are not available at your appointed time, you can select your puppy using FaceTime. If you aren't able to pick up your puppy on adoption day, they are welcomed to stay with us for a few additional days for a $20.00 per day charge.
If desired, we will provide you with a 12-pound “starter” bag of Fromm Gold puppy food for $20.00 and a 90-day supply of our recommended “NuVet Plus” vitamins for $50.00. Personal checks, cash and credit card payments are accepted.
We understand that some people believe that pets should be adopted, not purchased. We agree with that philosophy, but adoption is not for everyone. We want to make a difference in the lives of animals less fortunate than ours, so we donate a portion of each puppy sold to the Linda McNutt Animal Care and Adoption Center in Denton. This nonprofit organization is run primarily by volunteers, and does not receive any city, county, state or local funding.
