Thank you for taking the time to learn the adoption process.  This is where it is that I, as the “Puppy Creator”, can teach you what it is that I will be doing for you as one of my valued puppy parents.  For some people this is a very easy experience, mainly because they’ve already had a dog in the past or they come to me and meet the exact puppy they want right from the beginning.   For others it can be as emotional as having a baby; and that can be for a million different reasons.   For me...I only want you to place a deposit or “reservation fee” if you are truly comfortable about your decision to adopt/purchase a puppy.  I always tell people that there is always the right puppy for the right people at the right time.  I’ve learned this  by carefully observing the flow of events with many, many individuals and couples and families.


I can assure you of this one very important thing.  I am in no need to force sell a puppy ever.  In fact I gladly keep puppies for an extended period of time if it appears to be best for a puppy’s wellbeing.  I will also suggest to a family or individual, that they really should wait for the next litter to allow their own life to catch up to what they are about to undertake, and allow the process to flow easily and without fear or pressure.


The deposit or reservation fee is in place for a very real reason, and it has very real benefits to you and to me. 


First of all it ensures that you get the exact fit that you really want.  If I can’t provide you with the puppy you specifically request within six months of receiving it, the agreement is dissolved.


It also ensures that if you’re one of the first to commit, you will be given first opportunity to get what it is that you may specifically want in a puppy, such as gender, size or markings.   As each person makes a decision on their puppy the next in line gets to make their choice and so on.  It’s not that there is one puppy better than another, it’s that you get to choose a puppy with the right combination of characteristics that’s right for you.  


It’s all here to create order for those who are committed right from the beginning of the litter or even before the litter is conceived.  The people who come way later when the puppies are already at the going home age always, always get the right puppy also.  It’s a feeling and a vibe that people get, like when you walk into a house and you know that it’s really meant for you...It’s the same feeling!


So...  A lot of effort goes into planning creating and caring for a litter of these little beauties.  This is why I need to know who’s in and who isn’t when timing is important for everyone.  It’s tough on me, and not at all fair on other buyers if a person places a deposit and waits until the eleventh hour only to back out for reasons unknown.  It’s perfectly ok if that person does, but they must realize that a lot of other families may be negatively affected, as well as me, as a result of this action, and therefore a refund is not offered.  There needs to be an incentive to be honest and real for all the people concerned.



Throughout the entire process I will adding entries to the blog on this website and many videos and photos to my facebook page, Adams Australian Labradoodles.

This website will and can, if you just look, educate you to know as much as I do.  I know that you may not right away have all my skills, but you at least have access to all the knowledge that I possess as far as grooming and caring for your puppy into adulthood.  All you need to do is read the story on the first page and click the colored links. 


Your puppy will be guaranteed against genetic defects for the first two

years.  All parents and grandparents etc have been health tested prior to becoming breeding dogs to safeguard the offspring.


I also send out starter information in the form of easy to read (and save) emails that give you step by step instructions on what to do to “prepare”, for your upcoming puppy, and what to do to keep your very special friend in Tip Top condition over the first 12 months of their life with you!   It’s all easy to read.  To the point...and most of all, easy to find and review over and over again!  They will tell you what to do from day one all the way through to adulthood.  Topics covered are diet, grooming, health care and behavior. 


When you pick your puppy up I will provide you with a Pedigree that goes back 5 generations.  You can even research online your puppy’s own ancestors. 

Also, I provide a Puppy Passport into Life. This is an ongoing record keeping system that begins with the very first treatment they get from me, which would be worming, then the puppy vaccines, and any other treatment such as an anti-bacterial medication they sometimes require for their digestive system.

Keep this record booklet for all your future veterinary visits.  Please note that your puppy will have shots given at 8 weeks - 12 weeks and 16 weeks.  If you take yours at 8 weeks, your puppy still needs 2 more rounds from your vet.  I will administer them also at cost but the drive to my house may not be worth the effort.  It’s up to you :-)


PAYMENT

When picking your puppy up to take home please either pay in advance with a personal check, Venmo or Paypal, or on the day with CASH ONLY. When paying for a puppy that you’ve already chosen at an early age, I require everyone to consolidate their commitment at the midway point (4-5 weeks) so that all the other people in line know what’s going on.  If you’re choosing a pup who is already past 8 weeks of age, which almost never happens by the way,  CASH, VENMO or PAYPAL is then required to take your puppy home. Remember that all payments are required no later than 6 weeks.  This is to ensure you are going through with the process and is meant to weed out people who may have cold feet.  If you do have cold feet that’s fine, but the other people on the waiting list need to know, as do I so I can manage it all.  Am I bossy?  You bet I am, it’s for the betterment of everyone involved.  Some people don’t like my rules of operation and I understand that.  If you don’t like this process I would be fine if you went to another breeder.  I understand.


NO RETURNS PLEASE

Once a puppy is paid for the sale is considered to be final, even if I am asked by the buyer to hold onto their puppy for the convenience of the buyer.   There are no “automatic” refunds given under any circumstances if the buyer changes their mind or simply wants to return the puppy for any reason they may have. It is to be understood that the buyer has had ample time to assess their own life and financial circumstances, and is able to make this purchase with a clear mind.


If it is possible for me, the breeder, to re-home the puppy without too much trouble, there can be in some cases room to figure out a refund once the same puppy has been paid for in full by his or her new owner.  I will take into consideration my own extra time, money, boarding and all around hassle factor for this process.  This will be considered on a case by case basis however, so please proceed wisely.



I STRONGLY RECOMMEND...that you never take your puppy to a vet unless....

you have contacted me first or researched all the info on my HEALTH TIPS PAGE. My advice will save you the price of your puppy over the first few years, so I suggest you take it!   Other than a very rare situation, you will have little or no need to visit a vet.  Further to that, be very careful about what you hear from a vet clinic.  Almost no vet clinics have anyone qualified to speak to you about your puppy at first contact.  Don’t rely a receptionist or even a technician to help your puppy in an emergency or even a simple thing like worms...You will join a long list of regretful people.  Ninety nine percent of all the things that will concern you are covered in the emails I send out and on this site in the Health tips section.  Don’t waste your money and stress your puppy unnecessarily....Please.


Finally, I am here for you constantly.  You can email, text, call or even drop by and see me if you feel you need help.  I only want the best for you and our Aussie Furry Mate.




Thank you,


Adam Ford
