Adoption Process

1) Fill out puppy application

2) Application approval

3) Place deposit & complete Bill of Sale agreement

  • By placing a deposit and completing the Bill of Sale, you will lock in your pick position. The
    order of puppy picks is based on when your deposit is received. First deposit gets first pick,
    second deposit gets second pick, and so on.
  • The deposit is $400. Deposits are refundable, at Breeder’s discretion, anytime prior to week
    5. You also have the option, at Breeder’s discretion, of transferring your deposit to a future
    litter. At week 5, deposit is non-refundable.
  • Our preference for deposits is Zelle. However, you may also place your deposit using
    CashApp or cash.
  • Once your deposit is received, we’ll send you our Care and Feeding Guide via email and the
    Golden Retriever Puppy book via Amazon.

4) Follow the birth and development of the puppies on social media!

5) Pick out your puppy!

  • We’ll schedule a pick appointment for you to come and meet the pups in person and pick
    out your very own fur baby when the pups are approximately 5 weeks old. At this age, their
    eyes are open, they are walking and playing, and they’re beginning to show some
  • This is typically a 30 – 45 minute appointment. Many puppy parents already have a pick in
    mind from following the pups on Facebook! Keep in mind that, if others are picking ahead of
    you, it’s a good idea to have a 2nd or 3rd choice in mind in case your first choice has already
    been selected.
  • At 5 weeks, the pups will have received their first Parvo shot and will have developed some
    immunity. However, they can still be vulnerable, so we follow strict hygiene and disease
    prevention protocols. When you arrive, you will be asked to leave your shoes at the door
    and to sanitize your hands prior to meeting the pups.
  • When you come to select your puppy, we request that you limit your group to no more than
    4 people. Larger groups of people can be stressful for momma’s and can overwhelm the

6) Pick up your puppy!

  • When the puppies are 8 weeks old, they’re ready to go home! Normally, they will go see our
    veterinarian first thing in the morning for their health exam and a fecal test to make sure
    they are parasite free. They will also receive their first round of vaccines.
  • Pick up appointments usually start at noon and we generally schedule pickups all day that
  • Any balance still due must be paid in cash when you come to pick up your pup. If you plan to
    use Zelle or CashApp to pay the remaining balance for your puppy, you must make payment
    at least 7 days prior to pickup.
  • We require that you bring a crate or some other restraint device to hold your puppy in place
    for the drive home. Yes, the lap of your significant other can serve as a restraint device!
