Tetley's and Marlo's F1 mini Corgidoodle pups born February 21
February 27

Tetley was somewhat perplexed by little Mr. Reef when he made his entrance! She had never birthed a toy that was so interactive! Lol. I sat with her to help settle her down, and once Mr. Ya-Man appeared she was getting the hang of things and her maternal instincts took over. The girls came next and we named them Montego, Snorkel and Reggae! (Dean and I had a wonderful get-away in Jamaica in January, hence the Jamaican flavoured theme!)

The pups got a slow start as it took a while for Tetley’s milk to all come in but now they're well on their way and gaining daily! We were a might surprised with the colours that arrived on-scene from 2 apricot parents, but as it turns out there are phantom genes in both parents from 2 generations back! Lol.

These pups should range in size from 15-25 lbs. We'll see how their coats turn out. They'll likely shed some, if they're at all like our last litter of corgidoodles. These guys could start going home as early as April 18 but I'm willing to hold them for a of couple weeks to help accommodate people’s schedules.

Pricing for these pups are:

I have 3 spots currently available in this litter. If you're interested, please submit your adoption form.

Dolly's and Ryder's F1 mini/medium goldendoodle pups at 4 weeks old
January 22

Dolly is a fabulous mama and enjoys her pups, who are growing and developing very nicely. The pups are starting to exit their whelping box to toilet and they love their softened food. We look forward to see how these pups continue to develop and grow their personalities, since they already have their cuteness factor down pat.

Although it's too early to guess, I feel these pups may grow to weigh between 25-50 lbs. Their coats are starting to curl some, but it's still too early yet to know who will be low or heavier shedders.

The pups are scheduled to see the vet for their wellness check, vaccines and microchips on February 6. Choosing will begin on the February 8 weekend. They can go home after February 18, but I don’t mind holding a pup for an extra week or two.

I have a couple of spots left in this litter. Contact me if you're interested and check out our FAQ on how our adoption process works.

Dolly's and Ryder's F1 mini goldendoodle pups born December 24
December 27

Dolly and Ryder are proud to announce their litter of F1 mini goldendoodle pups!

After 2 days of common progressive labour (loss of appetite and restlessness), the pups started to come at 7pm on Christmas Eve! Just as soon as the evening church service was over and I checked my phone, the first pup appeared. My surveillance camera was a real treasure this holiday season!

This is Dolly’s first litter and she sure is a natural! I wish I was that good my first round!! Lol. There are 9 pups, 5 boys and 4 girls. With the help of some #heartyk9s_home followers contributing their thoughts via Instagram and after much deliberation we came up with yet another different Christmas theme (as we have had so many over the years).

The pups are named after a Swedish Christmas dinner! The boys are: Dopp i Grytan (Doop-a greet-a), Herring, Lutefisk, Meatball and Potato Sausage. The girls are called: Krum Kake (croom caw caw), Lefsa, Lingonberry and Rice Pudding. Yes, some crazy names, and maybe why we didn’t have this theme before! No worries, Doop, Croomy and Puddin’ will have new names when they get to their new homes!

I expect these pups to grow to between 25-40 lbs on average. Some may get bigger (up to 55lbs) and sometimes there's a smaller one (about 20 lbs). The pups can go home the end of February. will happen between February 9-16, most likely.

I do have several people on my waitlist wanting this size, but their timing does not work well... so there's availability in this litter!! Contact me if you're interested.

It is official... Winter gets an early retirement
November 18

Winter is now -- ADOPTED!!

I've talked about how much happier Winter is when I get to spend one on one time with him. He's a very fun, witty and smart dog. He settles well in the house and I can even take him out to an old folks home, where he is charming. Clients have loved his pups, but my heart for Winter is for him to have a family of his own who enjoy him and bring out his full potential.

I've taken the heart wrenching step to neuter him. Now I'm looking for a home for him as I don’t have the time he craves. Winter needs an active home where someone is around a lot. He looks for leadership and listens to the boundaries you give him as long as you're clear. He needs time to work on obedience and house rules, as he has only had short house visits at our place.

If you're interested in this regal standard poodle, please contact us.

Biscuit's and Yogi's F1B goldendoodle pups at 4 weeks old
November 18

Biscuit's and Yogi's pups are growing nicely. They're going out of the whelping box to toilet, are eating mush, and are also starting to crunch some kibble! These pups are very even in size, except the girl -- Decoy is 1/2 kg bigger than the rest, lol!

My guess weights for these guys is 55-75 lbs. They have a great variety of coats. Their characters are just developing and so we look forward to seeing how they'll unfold in the next few weeks!

Choosing for this litter will be the first weekend in December and the pups can start going home after December 13. Heron is presently having an issue with his right eye and he is being monitored by the vet. I'll hold him back until I know better what's going on with him... they don’t seem concerned at this time.

I have one spot available in this litter, not including Heron. Please contact me if you're interested, but also see Sales Agreement and FAQ if you haven't yet read them.

Canadian: male ~ red plaid ribbon -- ADOPTED

Duck Duck: male ~ light blue ribbon -- ADOPTED

Goose: male ~ green ribbon -- ADOPTED

Heron: male ~ brown ribbon -- ADOPTED

Loon: male ~ lime ribbon -- ADOPTED

Mallard: male ~ burgundy ribbon -- ADOPTED

RedHead (aka Red): male ~ red ribbon -- ADOPTED

Mr. Incredible makes a return debut!
October 29

-- ADOPTED

Mr. Incredible (from Chevy's and Swede's litter born August 8) is available for adoption. His adoptive family were allergic to him and their asthma was triggered. They are simply devastated. Mr. Incredible had quickly won their hearts but now he's waiting for another family to love.

This guy knows to sit to get his pets and is good on leash. He's great in a crate at night and travels well in a crate in a vehicle. House training is coming nicely along. I guess he will weigh around the 50-55 lb mark and will likely shed some.

If you're interested in Mr. Incredible, please take the time to read through our Sales Agreement and FAQ and then contact us!

Zola's and Horton's F1B goldendoodle litter at 4 weeks
October 29

Zola's and Horton's pups are adorable! They're growing nicely, have started to toilet outside their whelping box and to eat softened food. The pups are bright and jovial and ready for play! At this stage the daily changes are huge and we look forward to seeing how they'll progress over the next few weeks.

They'll be ready to go home November 25. These pups are all spoken for. I also have a wait list for them in case someone backs out.

Case-y: male ~ red ribbon -- ADOPTED

Deutz: male ~ lime ribbon -- ADOPTED

Fendt: male ~ green/pink ribbon -- ADOPTED

Johnny (Deere): male ~ green ribbon -- ADOPTED

Kubby (Kubota): male ~ orange ribbon -- ADOPTED

Allis: female ~ orange/white ribbon -- ADOPTED

Fergie: female ~ white with black/red flowers -- ADOPTED

Biscuit's and Yogi's F1B standard Goldendoodles born on October 18
October 21

Biscuit masked her labour symptoms very well. She even wanted to go for a run just hours before the pups started to arrive. But I snooped in on her frequently via our surveillance camera and she was very restless when she didn’t know I was watching.

We're so pleaseed with this litter!! What a beautiful bunch of puppies!! There are 8 boys and 1 girl in a variety of colours. Being born on my father-in-law’s birthday, I asked if he would think of a theme. He thought of ducks and geese, so I adapted from there, since it *is* hunting season. The boys' names are Canadian, Duck Duck, Goose, Heron, Loon, Mallard, Red Head (duck), Trumpeter, and the lone girl is Decoy!

Choosing for this litter will occur after November 29 and the pups can start going home on December 13. If you are interested in this litter, I do have some spots available... likely for a boy! Lol.

Please read through our sales agreement, and Preparing for your pup on FAQ. Then contact us if you're interested in a pup from this litter.

Because this litter is available close to Christmas, I want to point out that my policy is "no surprises". All the family must be on board and have books read before getting a puppy from Hearty K9s!
