         HOW THE DOODLE SWEETHEARTS ADOPTION PROCESS WORKS


     If you are interested in adopting a Doodle Sweethearts puppy, contact Stephanie & Darren at
      puppies@doodlesweethearts.com or phone 519-291-6633 with any inquiries at all BEFORE filling out the   
     application.  

     When all your questions are answered and you decide to adopt a Doodle Sweetheart puppy, please fill out our
     application form on our "Contact Us" page.  Let us know which litter or litters interest you as well as all the things  
     you want with color, coat, gender, size, etc.

     We review all your information and will communicate with you about what you are looking for to ensure we   
     understand your wishes and desires for a puppy.

     In order to hold a spot on our waiting list, we require a non-refundable deposit of $250.00.  Send a deposit to    
     reserve a puppy from the litter you are interested in.  This amount will be deducted from the purchase price of
          $2500.00.

           We will contact you when the puppies have arrived!!!  At this time we will also set a tentative date (usually a
         Saturday) for choosing your puppy.  If you are one of the first in line to choose, kindly consider the people after you
         who are waiting to choose and make time in your schedule to come first thing in the morning on that day if
         possible.  (choosing may also be done by photos if the distance doesn't allow you to come visit)

        DNA testing done at 3-4 weeks of age, to test for shedding.  This is done with a cheek swab which
        then gets mailed to Paw Print Genetics and takes 2 weeks to get the results back.

        Review the information on our website to prepare for your puppy.  If you plan to feed your puppy what we    
        recommend:  TLC Natural Life Pet Food, it would be good to
get it ordered so you have it when your puppy comes
        home!

    Vet health check & 1st vaccination at 7 weeks of age.

    When puppies are 7 weeks of age and vet checked we will send each family information on the puppies in the litter
    that suit all the criteria they are looking for, and then we will help you determine which puppy is the best option for
    you and your family.  

    Arrangements can be made to visit the litter of puppies you are getting a puppy from, after we have received the
    DNA results and the puppies have had their vet check and first vaccination.

    Doodle Sweethearts reserves the right to keep back two puppies from every litter as potential breeding dogs
    for our program.  

    When the puppies are 8 weeks of age the final payment for puppy is due.

    Puppies are ready for pick up after they are 8 weeks of age, and if we are shipping to you that date will be
    scheduled when pups are born and they will be sent between 8 and 12 weeks of age, depending on the airline
    used.  See our Pricing / Shipping page for more info.

    Puppies are to be picked up or shipped no later than 9 weeks. If you are not able to take your puppy at that time
    there will be a $50 per week boarding charge.  


    WHEN SENDING US AN APPLICATION PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU HAVE DONE THE FOLLOWING:
    1.        Reviewed our Adoption Information page with all the details about our non refundable deposit, the puppy
    fee, shipping fee, and how our adoption process works.
    2.        Considered the litter options we have available now or coming available soon and let us know with as much
    detail as possible what you are looking for, and what litters interest you.

    AFTER SENDING THE APPLICATION:
    1.        We will reply to your email and confirm with you what it is you are wanting and confirm availability.
    2.        You will need to submit the $250.00 deposit to reserve a puppy from the litter you are interested in.  Please
    be aware that availability can change quickly as applications are submitted all the time and reservations for a
    puppy will be held when a deposit is made.  Many families want to ensure their reservation and will send the
    deposit at the same time as the application.  
    3.         To do so, you may send payment by E-transfer to puppies@doodlesweethearts.com, or you may send a
    cheque made out to Stephanie Huber (not Doodle Sweethearts) and mail to: 6492 Sideroad 6 RR 3, Listowel, ON  
    N4W 3G8.   

    NOTE:  Please understand that if you mail a cheque, the time that it takes for a cheque to arrive here, someone else
    may easily send an e-transfer in the meantime and therefore be next in line to choose a puppy before you.  Picking
    order is given in the order we "receive" the deposit.

    *******Please read our deposit policy information on the Pricing  page.
