Our puppies are free. Sort of...
They are not a product. We do, however, charge $3,200 for the service of breeding and raising your companion. Ethical, small batch puppy raising involves hours and hours of meticulous care, feeding, exercise and training of Moms and Dads, vet bills, sleepless nights, endless paperwork, continuing education and client support. The majority of the work a good breeder does goes on in the months and years leading up to and after your puppy's birth. This is the service we do charge for. But the actual puppy is free.... :) And, yes we pay IRS.
Thank you for your interest in an Autumn Haze Australian Multi-Generation Labradoodle. The cost of one of our puppies is $3,200 and we require a non-refundable deposit of $500.00 to hold your puppy . The remaining balance is due on puppy pick up day. Puppies will be assigned to their families/individuals between 6-7 weeks of age, and are able to go home at 9 weeks of age. Please keep in mind that it is in Mother Nature’s hands to determine gender, color, and coat of your future puppy. Although we will do our very best to provide you with the puppy of your dreams and match your preferences, this may not always be possible. In the event that you are offered a puppy that does not meet your wishes, your deposit will be rolled over to the next available similar litter.
I am very sorry but we do not take visitors into our home. Please understand that we are a small in home breeder and do not have a kennel facility that is available for visitation. With multiple requests to visit each week we just can not handle the interruptions to our home life or the care of our puppies.
Parvo virus is a real threat to the lives of unborn & young puppies that are not fully vaccinated. And we absolutely do not take visitors to see the puppies.... ever. Canine Parvo virus is a deadly communicable disease. We have met prospective owners at local markets for a visit with our adult dogs. And would consider this request, with an approved puppy application.
It is transferred on shoes, clothes, tires and hands and can easily be picked up and carried on the soles of your shoes without you knowing that you have been exposed! So please be understanding about our no visitor policy, it is only for the sanity of our home life , and the safety of our puppies!
Additionally, our puppies usually are all spoken for. The puppy owners do not want people visiting their puppy.
When planning a trip to our home to pick up your new puppy, we ask that you not visit other places where dogs have been prior to visiting. Parvo virus is very persistent and difficult to get rid of... Parvo can live in the soil for up to 3 years.

Two Year Health Guarantee
1. From the date of birth against all serious life altering genetic disease or Hip Dysplasia. The Breeder reserves the right to have a second opinion by a licensed veterinarian of Breeder’s choice, at Breeder’s expense.
2. The Purchaser must submit both X-Ray and accompanying report of OFA, BVA or Penn Hip. The dog must be showing physical symptoms on a regular basis and shall not have been overweight at any time during the guarantee period.
3. Purchaser must be able to provide Breeder with up to date veterinary and treatment records. Breeder reserves the right to review all medical/treatment records with a licensed veterinarian of Breeder’s choice, at Breeder’s expense.
4. In the event that the dog is affected by a serious life altering genetic disease including Hip Dysplasia, Breeder will either replace the dog, or refund the Purchaser up to the cost of the dog for medical treatment (Breeder’s choice).
5. Should dog have been subject to any of the following during the guarantee period, the guarantee becomes null and void.
-Failure to maintain puppy’s general health care (this includes obesity)
-The administration of a Rabies vaccination, Lyme vaccination, or Lepto vaccination in conjunction with DHPP/DAPP vaccinations. This is to prevent serious adverse reactions that can result from multiple vaccinations being administered at the same time. When a dog is given a Rabies, Lyme, or Lepto vaccination as a stand -alone vaccine, it will allow you to know exactly which vaccination the dog is having an adverse side effect/reaction to. Severe damage can be done which can result in a suppressed immune system by overloading a dog with vaccinations
-.Neglect, trauma, or abuse
-.Excessive stair climbing or vigorous excessive exercise until (at minimum) 10 months of age. This is to ensure you have given your pup time for bones and joints to develop until growth plates have closed
-Feeding the puppy a poor quality diet.
6. Under no circumstances shall the Breeder be liable for any consequential, incidental, or special damages resulting from negligence and environmental factors.
7. This warranty does not cover skin/food/environmental allergies. We have no control of the area your pup may be in, food you choose to feed your pup, or the environmental factors that may trigger allergies. Allergies in dogs (like people) can develop at any time.
8. This warranty does not cover cosmetic teeth/bite issues such as an under-bite or base narrow canines. These are recessive genes that are common to our breed and cannot be tested for prior to breeding.
9. This warranty applies only to the original buyer. Upon transfer of ownership of the dog, warranty becomes null and void.
10. Breeder agrees to accept return of dog at any time during the life of the dog for any reason. Purchaser agrees never to relinquish dog to a shelter and to contact Breeder immediately in the event that the dog needs to be rehomed.
11. Our return/rehome policy is as follows...
-In the event that the Purchaser needs to immediately rehome dog, Purchaser agrees to ship puppy to Breeder at Purchaser’s expense.
-In the event that rehoming the dog is not an emergency situation, Purchaser agrees to keep the dog until the Breeder can find a new home for the dog. This is a much better situation for the dog, so that it only needs to make one transition.
-Upon rehoming the dog, Breeder agrees to refund any proceeds (minus any expenses that are incurred by Breeder for the dog during the re-home process ie: training, boarding, vet care, grooming etc..) from the re-home to the original Purchaser.
