Thank you for considering a puppy

 from Doodles & Doxies!

We know many families have two working adults and we don't expect anyone to be a super hero and quit a day job just to be able to take home a puppy. Every puppy family has different needs, and this information form helps us identify who needs what information and what homes might make the best fit. If you're a veteran puppy owner, we don't want to waste your time regaling things you already know; by the same token, if this is your first puppy, we want to make sure you leave prepared for what life with a puppy may bring.

We do have a referral program! If you were referred to us by someone, please include their name in the “How Did You Hear About Us” section so they can a small token of our thanks!

Completing this application is a step in the process to acquiring a puppy from Doxies and Doodles Premium Puppies, but it does not guarantee I'll get a puppy from this or any future litter. While it's unlikely, the breeder reserves the right to refuse any placement at any time.

 

APPROVAL AND DEPOSIT: Applications will be reviewed within 2 business days of receipt. Applications are processed in the order they are received. If your home is a good fit, you will be notified.  Approved homes will receive the approval to make a commitment deposit on a puppy, and links via Venmo or Zelle. Email will be sent out in the order approved applications were received. Please make this deposit within 48 hours of the approval e-mail. If you make a deposit, you are committing to take a puppy from one of our litters, and if we don't have the color or gender available in the litter you are on, you have the option to transfer to another litter or wait for your color/gender of choice. 

 

GOING HOME: You are required to pick up your puppy on the day assigned for Pick ups. We do offer daily boarding rates if you cannot pick up the day we assign.  

CONTRACT: We have a contract and will not place a puppy without a signed contract. We believe it's the professional thing to do to memorialize our obligations to each other on paper so there are no questions later, and for that reason it's a bit lengthy. If you have questions about specific terms, you need to contact us prior to picking up your puppy.

SPAY/NEUTER: We require spay/neuter at or before 12 months. Occasionally we offer the opportunity for qualified breeds to obtain breeding rights on the TOP pick of the litter. Not every dog in the litter has the genetic makeup to improve the breed.  

 

REGISTRATION PAPERS: Our excellent family companions do not come with registration papers to any registry. The parents of our puppies are registered through AKC or CKC, depending on the breed. Our Dachshund Puppies may be sold with limited registration if requested. Limited Registration papers are given once written proof of spay/neuter procedure is submitted.
