BIG NEWS!! Our Hearty K9s deposit waitlist is now open!!

Due to many different circumstances, I have more people on my waitlist that want pups in 2022 than I have wanting pups this fall/early winter!

I'm now taking deposits for pups who will be going home in November/ December. See how our adoption process works on FAQ.

I'll likely have a variety of sizes of F1s and F1Bs. See Tomorrow’s Pups for planned litters.

I will no longer have a second waitlist.
For anyone who submits an adoption form and is approved to submit a deposit, but does not put down a deposit:

  1. I will keep your adoption form on file for a year from the date it was received.
  2. If over 2 weeks has lapsed since you were approved you should contact me before submitting a deposit.

For more information and clarification check out the Sales Agreement.

Please contact me if you have any questions!

COVID 19 restrictions update for Hearty K9s -- July 2021

We're allowing folks to come to visit us! Choosing can happen in person once again!!

We only ask that you do not come in person to choose a pup, or to visit us, if you have any cold or Covid symptoms.

We sincerely appreciate your cooperation in this!

For prices and boarding fees see Sales Agreement.

NEW!!! Visitor restrictions to puppies
Effective August 24

Due to the increasing prevalence of Parvo we've decided to return to Covid restrictions where clients choose their pups remotely.

To help with this change we'll post more videos of the pups on Instagram at #heartyk9s_home after they're 6 weeks old.

Also, as we record their individual puppy evaluations videos of each pup are sent to the list of folks choosing from the litter. I'll call folks in the order I received their deposits.

If you have any questions, please contact me!

We sincerely appreciate your understanding in this matter as we act to protect each puppy; present and future.

Jelly Bean's & Nic-o's litter of 11 F1B standard goldendoodle pups born on September 18
September 20

Jelly Bean was huge and getting uncomfortable. But she was still able to go for a good long run on Thursday, keeping up with the rest of us very well!

We had a very busy day of puppy evaluations and puppy pick ups along with combining on Saturday. Extra help was on hand that day, which was a God send, but at the end of the day I parked the combine at 10pm and went to check on the doggies before I headed to bed. Low and behold, I heard newborn cries! Here was Miss Jelly having pups! She was a real trooper and did everything textbook style, without reading up on how to be a mama!

There are 6 boys and 5 girls. Often times I'll name a litter by what's going on in our lives and this time I thought the theme of bridges would be appropriate. With so much division in this world bridges bring people together and unite (a little deep for naming a litter, I know).

I decided to name the pups after a bridge from each province. The boys are: Angus (NS), Bishop Falls (NFL), Chief Mistawis (SK), Granville (BC), Humber Bay (ON) and Icelandic (MB). The girls are: Confederation (PEI), DehCho (NWT), Malone (NB), Reconciliation (AB) and Victoria (QC).

This litter should grow to weigh 50-60 lbs average. There may be some smaller than that and some bigger. They'll be ready to go home starting the 13th of November!

I have 6 deposits for this litter and now I can start accepting more applications. Contact me if you're interested.

Tomorrow's pups update
updated September 13

I do not expect each of these gals to conceive but for the sake of those of you on my waitlist, here's hoping!! The pups can start going home when they're 8 weeks old. If you can't pick up your pup by 9 weeks of age, there's a boarding fee. See the Sales Agreement.

Future Pairings are not written in stone and will depend on demand/suitable mating partners. FYI, my recent demand is unusually high for any mature dogs under 50 lbs, so I plan to breed the next several litters accordingly. 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.

Fall/Winter 2021 planned:
Dolly and Abe or Swede for F1 medium/standard goldendoodles. Due September 30 and pups would go home the beginning of December. I have openings in this litter.
Eliza and Marlo for F1B mini/medium goldendoodles. Due October 18 and pups would go home mid December. I have openings in this litter at this time.

Winter 2022 planned:
Annie and Marlo for F1 mini goldendoodles
Mango and Nic-o or Marlo for F1B standard or mini goldendoodles

Spring 2022 planned:
Cotton and Simon or Swede/Abe for F1B medium goldendoodles
We may have another F1 goldendoodle who will be old enough to breed next spring, but she needs to finish passing her health tests before then.

Summer/Fall 2022:
Darla and Abe for F1 medium goldendoodles
Polly and Simon or Marlo for F1B mini/medium goldendoodles
Zola and Simon or Marlo for F1B mini goldendoodles
Chicky and Nico or Simon for F1B standard/medium goldendoodles

Their vet appointment is September 3 and we plan to do their puppy evaluations on September 6.

Kit's and Marlo's 6 F1 mini/medium goldendoodle pups born July 31
August 3

Kit had a long night of labour. She started delivering just before 6 am and was done by 3pm. The pups are chubby and healthy! I expect them to grow to between 30-50 lbs. These pups can go home the end of September!

There are 4 girls and 2 boys. The theme for this litter is "just hatched". PeeKING, STARLING, ChickaDEE, FlaMINGO, MartinGALE, and SandPIPER.

I do have 3 spots available in this litter!

Please see how my adoption process works and send in an adoption form if you're interested in one of these pups!

Chicky's and Marlo's F1B standard goldendoodles born July 22
July 24

We're so excited to announce the safe arrival of Chicky's and Marlo's 13 pups! When my van broke down in Calgary after dropping off my daughter and grandson at the airport, Chicky decided to not wait around for me to get back. Thankfully my son and hired man stepped in in my absence and all went very well! I'm so pleased with this stunning, classic looking litter. The pups all look strong and healthy.

There are 7 girls and 6 boys. The theme is inspired by grandma-hood and teaching animal sounds, as I had such a wonderful time becoming reacquainted with our grandson whom we had not seen for 8 months and who is now 9 months old!

The boys are named Buzz, Grrr, Heehaw, Oink, Ribbit and Roar, and the girls are Cluck, Hoot, Moomoo, Neigh, Quack, Tweet and Woof.

These pups will be able to go home closer to the end of September and should range in weight from 30-50 lbs.

I'm still waiting to hear back from some more people, but most of this litter is spoken for. There may be availability if some folks on the waitlist choose to wait for a future litter.

Contact me if you may be interested.

Polly's and Simon's litter at 4 weeks old
July 24

What a delightful litter this litter of 8 is turning out to be. The pups are already going out of their whelping box to play and go to the bathroom! Softened food has been a real hit!

I'm impressed with this little 'medical team' and am looking forward to see how they develop and grow, especially as they get ready to blossom in their new homes!

All of these pups are spoken for. They can go home the end of August to the beginning of September.

Zola's and Simon's F1B mini goldendoodle pups born July 17
July 20

Zola was labouring quite some time before her seven sweet little babies came into the world, starting between 4:30-6:00 am on Saturday morning. She is such a good mama and dotes over her little ones.

The pups should vary in weight from 20-35 lbs. They'll go home mid September.

There are 4 girls and 3 boys. The theme for their names are Summer in different languages. It may be hard for me to remember pronunciation, so I've put that in brackets().

The boys:

The girls:

These pups are all spoken for.

Darla's and Nic-o's F1 standard goldendoodles at 4 weeks old
July 9

Already this litter is 4 weeks old!

Since their eyes started to open at 2 weeks old they've wandered out of their whelping box and now they seem so much older! The pups are now munching away on softened kibble and they already start to come to the "Puppy, Puppy" call.

All of this litter is spoken for. I expect them to grow to be in the 50-80 lb range. Their vet appointment is on July 26 and puppy evaluations will happen likely around July 28. Choosing will start after that.

The pups can start going home August 4.
