We're so glad you are interested in learning about the adoption process.  All puppies are priced between $2,000 - $3,000.


  • Your puppy receives: age appropriate vaccinations, veterinary exam, worming, microchip, strict early spay and neuter contract, one year genetic health warranty and socialization.

  • Your puppy receives: a character assessment for suitability for your family, and comes with a one year genetic health guarantee, and continuing support. Our service to you does not end with the purchase of your puppy. If we don't know the answers to your questions, we will do our best to find out.

  • You receive: a puppy packet with health certificate, CKC registration info and ongoing support.

  • You receive: A stuffed toy or blanket that smells like "home".



  • Each adopting family must please fill out and submit the puppy application form. This helps to assure that you get the best match for your specific family needs. 

  • All applications will be reviewed and families will be interviewed by phone or in person.  Once your application has been approved, then the deposit must be paid to secure your place on the puppy waiting list.

  • Once Application has been accepted, a Purchase Contract will be sent for your review and signatures.



  • We require a $300 deposit to guarantee your place on the puppy wait list

  • Deposits are NON-REFUNDABLE.

  • Deposits can be paid by:

    • Mailing a Cashier check, certified check or money order

    • Venmo or Paypal link that will be emailed to you.  If you use Paypal, an additional service charge of 3% will be added to your deposit.  

  • IMPORTANT:  If, for any reason, you choose to not go through with your plans to purchase a puppy from Florida Doodle, your deposit will not be refunded.  Your deposit will still be utilized to hold your spot on the waiting list for a period of 1 year from the receipt of your deposit.  After that time, your spot and deposit will be forfeited.   

  • Final payment of the remaining balance one week prior or, if paying at pickup, cash is required.



  • Once the puppies are 6 weeks old, we will schedule the adopting families to come visit with

      the puppies in person or via web conference to meet and select their pups in the order of their

      position on the waiting list.   

  • The Florida Doodle retains the right to withhold any puppy for our breeding program.



  • At 8 weeks old, we will schedule pick up times for each of the adopting families.   

  • We do not ship our puppies as cargo but will be happy to make travel arrangements to fly your

      puppy to you at your expense.
