Prices, Sizes, And The Adoption Process
A lot goes into the Breeding and raising of QUALITY dogs. Although prices may be similar, quality, health testing, training, and socialization are not. Make sure to compare "apples to apples" when looking at breeders.
- Our Petites will range from about 15-25 pounds.
- Minis will be 20-40 pounds
- Mediums are 30-50 pounds
- We do not breed standards but they are 50-75 pounds.
- Remember, in the doodle world, weight correlates more to the "build" of the dog. Several doodles can appear the same size but range in weight due to muscle and mass.
PRICES & POLICIES
As of March 6, 2021
All our dogs are hip, elbow, patella, heart-certified. They have been tested negative for genetic disorders (PRA, PRCD, Vwd, and more). All our dogs are fed premium foods, are current on all vaccines, receive monthly parasite and heartworm prevention. All females are in the house during their pregnancy, and all pups are born and raised in the home. We feel that providing healthy, happy, well-adjusted puppies starts before they are conceived with healthy, well-adjusted parents.
Pups are in our house with our kids and a central part of our lives for 8 weeks. We introduce them to the sights and sounds they will experience when they come home to your house. At 4 weeks, they move to the Nursery. It is attached to our house and has central air and heat. This gives them a doggie door to do their business, and they get used to going outside even in the cold and wind and rain (it’s covered, though).
Our pups are dewormed every week, they receive their first puppy shots, Flea and Heartworm prevention, and a thorough exam by our vet before going home.
All our pups are sold on a strict spay and neuter contract. We occasionally sell puppies with Breeding Rights, but special arrangements must be made.
If you would be interested in reserving a Mustard Seed Ranch Pup, we require a signed application and a $200.00 NON-refundable Application Fee. This is not a deposit. Once your application is approved, this fee is non-refundable, with no exceptions. Your original check will be returned and never cashed if your application is denied. Once your application is received and approved, your name will be added to the Master List, and once we have a litter born that matches your criteria, you will receive an email announcement. This will give you essential information about when they go home, how many of each gender, and where you stand on the list. At 5 weeks of age, pictures will be posted for those on the Master List only at that time-giving them the first option to adopt. The final payment is due at that time. Pups go home at 8 weeks of age.
For families not on the Master List with an Approved application on file at 6 weeks of age, any remaining puppies will be listed on the Available Puppies page, and a completed application and payment in Full are required at that time. Pups go home 2 weeks later at 8 weeks of age.
For Master List clients, you will receive a group picture at birth, 1 week of age, and individual photos at 5 weeks of age.
All our puppies are $2500.00 regardless of gender or size. Puppies with patterns known as "Parti," "Merle," or "Tri" are $3000.00
All Puppies must be paid in Full at selection time.
Selections: Due to covid-19, we are not currently making any in-home selections. Selections are based upon Pictures and a Volhard Puppy Test. We do not do videos or Facetime for selections due to technical difficulties. At 7 weeks of age, we can attempt a brief Facetime showing of your puppy once selected.
All Deposits and Payments are NON-REFUNDABLE but are transferable to another litter or puppy.
The State of Georgia requires us to collect a 7% Sales Tax on all dogs, and sales tax has already been added to the adoption fee.
