Tomorrow's Pups -- our plans to Spring 2021
Future Pairings are not written in stone and will depend on demand/suitable mating partners. The girls are doing their own thing when it comes to their cycles. I can only guess what will happen next! Here is the latest!
Plans may change depending on when they all come into season -- hopefully not all at once!!
Annie and Swede for F1 medium/large goldendoodles. Due March 8.
Summer 2020 planned:
JJ and Marlo for F1B mini goldendoodles
Kit and Abe for F1 medium goldendoodles
Fiddle and Swede for F1B medium/large goldendoodles
Biscuit and Marlo for F1B mini/medium goldendoodles
Fall/early Winter 2020 planned:
Darla and Swede for F1 medium/large goldendoodles
Tess and Abe for F1 medium goldendoodles
Winter/Spring 2021 planned:
Chicky and Swede for F1B medium/larger goldendoodles

There will likely be some new litters added to our breeding plans once the our new K9s are old enough to have finished their health testing.
Samsung and Amana F1B mini goldendoodles are available
Amana is a sweet-natured, playful, little girl. She'll likely not shed and should weigh about 25lbs. She's ready to go!! -- ADOPTED
"Sam"sung is a confident, smart and fun puppy. His coat is not very curly at this time -- he may shed minimally? Guess that he'll weigh about 35 lbs. Ready to go! -- ADOPTED
Contact me if you're interested in pups from this litter, or any other.
Zola's and Marlo's F1B mini Goldendoodle pups born January 25
Zola decided she couldn't wait to see her litter either and had her pups a few days early! The 4 girls and 3 boys are growing and thriving well! We're going with a potato chip brand naming theme. Dorito, McCoy, Ruffle, Hostess, Pringle, Kettle and Vicki.
I have 2 spots left in this litter. They should grow to be 15-25lbs.
Choosing will be around March 14. The pups can start going home after March 21.
Contact me if you're interested in a pup from this litter.

These are the pups we currently have available from this litter. They're 7.5 weeks old in these photos. The pups can start going home after January 6.
Please contact me if you're interested in one of these lovely pups!

Sergeant is the smallest boy and is a real sweetheart! He has a softer temperament at this time and is not overly boisterous. Guess weight: 50 lbs. -- AVAILABLE

Marine comes across as hesitant but actually is more of a thinker. She's a smart one for sure! The biggest girl of this litter. Guess weight? 65 lbs. -- AVAILABLE

Chevy's and Marlo's F1 mini goldendoodle litter at 4 weeks old!
These 4 handsome boys have the sweetest, cuddly characters. If they're like their parents there's never a limit to how much cuddling is enough! The pups are walking around well and working off that pudge from spending too much time at the milk bar! lol.
There are a good variety of coats and sizes. The pups' coats should be minimal shedding, but it's hard to tell at this age. I would expect that they'll range in weight from 25-50 lbs.
Choosing happens for this litter after January 22 and they can go home as early as January 26.
Contact me if you would like a sweet boy from this litter!
Ornament: male ~ red/green plaid ribbon -- AVAILABLE
Eggnog: male ~ truck ribbon -- AVAILABLE
Light: male ~ tree ribbon -- AVAILABLE
Nutcracker: male ~ black/red plaid ribbon -- ADOPTED
Available from Hazel's and Ryder's litter
The day after they had come to visit her, a member in Swather's family had an allergic reaction. As much as they had hoped it was a cold coming on they realized the symptoms were due to allergies.
Swather is a soft character and not dominant or boisterous. She loves a good snuggle and is doing well with crate and leash training! She will likely weigh 40-45 lbs at maturity and should be low to non-shedding.
Contact me if you're interested in her. She will be ready to go as of December 28.
Penny's and Marlo's mini F1B goldendoodles: 4 weeks old
These little nuggets are quite the crew. It's fun to watch their developing antics and personalities and I seem to have a new favourite every day! They're starting to venture and toilet outside of their whelping box.
This is a sweet bunch of pups, with a good variety of coats, sizes and characters! They should range in size from 15-30 lbs and be low or non shedding.
Choosing for this litter will occur after January 8. The earliest the pups can go home is January 14.
I still have 2-3 spots available in this litter. Contact me if you're interested.

Dolly's and Abe's F1 medium goldendoodles at 4 weeks old!
I have to say, this litter has my heart and it may have something to do with "cake" being a love language of mine? Lol. But I could give any number of good reasons to keep any one of these pups for myself!!
There are a good variety of sizes here, from Angel who is bigger than all of them to Carrot who's currently a full kg smaller than her. The pups are already going outside the whelping box to toilet and are enjoying their softened food.
Dolly is an amazing mom and has very rich milk. The pups are all thriving well. I suspect their weights will range from 30-55 lbs, but Angel may be more?? She is just so big!!
Choosing for this litter can start after January 3 and pups can go home January 9 at the earliest. I do have availability in this litter.
If you're interested, please contact me!

Chicky's and Yogi's F1B standard goldendoodle puppies at 4 weeks!
I'm very pleased to update all 14 puppies for their 4 week photos!! This is the largest litter I've had at Hearty K9s that have all thrived!! The pups are growing exponentially now that they're starting on softened food. Chicky has received a lot of extra nutrients to keep all her pups growing and nourished while keeping herself in good shape.
The 2 pups which Hazel adopted are doing excellent as well. It's fun to see them growing up and how different they all look from each other. The first one in this litter will be chosen for a service dog.
Choosing for this litter starts January 2. The earliest they can go home is January 6. I do have lots of availability in this litter.
Please contact me if you're interested.

Chevy's and Marlo's mini F1 goldendoodle litter born December 1!
Chevy was past her due date and it seemed a long wait for these 4 boys. As we have surveillance cameras I could watch her actions (which are totally different when I'm with her) and finally she had them on Sunday night. I said at 7pm she should start having them by 9, and low-and-behold this was the right time! She was all done by 11pm and every one of them are doing well!
Chevy couldn't be more proud. She's such a good mama. I expect these pups will range in weight between 25-50 lbs. There are a good variety of shades and most have a white patch on their chest.
Being born the first of December I thought I would name them after an acronym, NOEL: Nutcracker, Ornament, Eggnog, and Light. These pups will be ready to go home at the earliest on January 26.
I have availability in this litter. Please contact me if you're interested.
Hazel's and Ryder's F1B mini/medium goldendoodles at 4 weeks(ish)
Just look at these charming characters!! How could you not just love them!! Those eyes!!! (I do like my job by the way! Lol)
This is the darkest red F1B litter I'll have for a while. Both Hazel and Ryder had some pretty strong red genes, which do fade some in time.
These pups are doing fabulous. They live the luxury life of eating, sleeping, bathrooming -- and now they're starting to add clumsy play into their daily regime. Because Hazel has such an abundance of milk the pups have grown quite fast and are in good health.
I still feel this litter will range in weight between 20-45 lbs, but maybe up to 50? Their coats should be low to non-shedding. Choosing starts right after their vet visit on December 20. They can start going home at the very earliest on December 28.
I'm happy to keep the pups up to 12 weeks, or what works best for your family, as the chaos of Christmas festivities settle out. I start charging $50/week after pups are 10 weeks old and this fee includes their second shots.
I have 3 pups available in this litter. Please contact me for your last chance to include a Hazel and Ryder pup in your family!!
Hazel is retiring after this litter and I'll be looking for a home for her after her pups leave and she is spayed.

Penny's and Marlo's 10 F1B mini goldendoodles born November 19
Penny laboured off and on for 5 days! Her "sign" that she was getting close was that she cut back on her eating and just had a tablespoon of kibble every day or so. Finally in the wee hours of Tuesday morning she started delivery and was done by 7am, with 4 boys and 6 girls.
She's a very experienced and attentive mama. Her litter has a good variety of sizes. The pups should range from 15-35 lbs when mature and be light to non-shedding with various shades of light to medium apricot colours. This is Marlo's fist goldendoodle litter so I'm not sure what colours he'll throw. Some may get darker, some may lighten, others may just stay as they are.
These certainly are a beautiful bunch of pups, everyone of them! On this round of litters I'm raising, this one will have the smallest pups.
We recently had to replace our fridge and that got me onto this theme. The boys are: Danby, Frigidaire, Moffat and Samsung. The girls are called: Amana, GE, 'Kit'chenaid, LG, Maytag and Whirlpool. The pups will be ready to go home January 14 at the earliest.
I currently have availability in this litter. Choosing will start to happen after January 8. Contact me if you're interested.
Dolly's and Abe's F1 medium goldendoodle pups born November 14
Dolly’s tummy was huge and we were a bit concerned at just how many she was going to have, and at 10 am on Thursday the great reveal began! She ended up having the pups quite quickly and birthed 11 in 4 hours. There are 3 boys and 8 girls. They're absolutely gorgeous and are thriving well.
I was looking for a dessert for a potluck recently and noticed that types of cake can have some good dog names. So here we go! The boys are: "Boston" Cream, Bundt, and Torte. The girls are: Angel, Butter, Carrot, Chiffon, Kuchen, Spice, Tiramisu and Stollen.
I have several pups available in this litter. Both Dolly and Abe have awesome personalities and I suspect their pups will follow suit. They should range in weight between 30-55 lbs.
Choosing for this litter will start in the new year and the earliest they can go home is January 9.
If you're interested in a pup from this litter, please contact me.
Chicky's and Yogi's F1B Standard Goldendoodles born November 11
Yogi is leaving a legacy of being a high roller for his last litter! Chicky birthed 14 pups on Remembrance Day and is handling her new role as mama very well considering the mass exodus of puppies that left her body! Lol.
I'm allowing Hazel to help out and foster 3 pups for now. Canines are amazing at accepting new pups into their litters, especially when they're little. I originally had a different theme picked out of this litter, but since they were born on Remembrance Day I felt it would be nice to acknowledge this in the theme.
The boys are named Army, Captain, Colonel, Flander, Air "Force", Hero, Sergeant and Veteran, while the girls are Cadet, Corporal, Lament, Lieutenant, Marine and Poppy.
I do have lots of availability in this litter. This is a chance to get one of the last of Yogi's amazing pups. He'll live on in these beautiful puppies.
I believe these pups will weigh between from 50-75 lbs. Their coats are cream to apricot in colour and they'll likely be very low to non-shedders. I'm very excited to say that the first pup in this litter will become to a service dog for a young lady!
The pups' vet visit will be December 30 and choosing will occur after the New Year. The earliest they can go home is at 8 weeks, on January 6. I'm able to hold pups until they're 12 weeks old and the charge is $50/week after they're 10 weeks old. This fee covers their care, food and 2nd shot.
