Tomorrow's Pups -- our newest plans
Updated March 28

I have 10+ people on my waitlist for all sizes and timeline requests. The number of pups born in each litter will determine how much room I have for more deposits. I'll only accept more deposits if you're willing to wait while previous deposits are filled.

The current average of pups in a litter is 7-8. I don't like to take more than 5 deposits per litter until the pups are born, and when there are more than 5 pups I'll accept more deposits.

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!!

Bred:
Kit and Abe for F1 medium goldendoodles. Due May 18.
Fiddle and Swede for F1B medium/large goldendoodles. Due May 18.
More dogs are coming into season soon. We'll update after they finish their 'honeymooning'.

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
Mango and Abe for F1B 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
Dolly and Abe for F1 medium goldendoodles
Penny and Marlo for F1B mini goldendoodles

There will likely be some new litters added to our breeding plans once our new K9s are old enough to have finished their health testing.

Amazing Temperaments in this Standard F1B litter
February 21

These are the pups available from their litter of 14 pups. Three from this litter have been chosen to be trained for service dog work. We're a little perplexed why these gentle, well-balanced pups have not been adopted yet.

I feel like they're a gold mine of pups, that folks just don’t know what they are missing. The pups are well started in leash, crate and basic obedience. If you're wanting a calm, easy-going pup, easy to train, and full of potential, please contact me about this litter.

Lament is a jovial, energetic, happy girl who is game to play and keep you entertained. She's learning to focus and keep calm and has lots of potential. Her coat will likely be low to non-shedding and will likely be around the 50 lb mark. -- ADOPTED

Flander is quite the catch! He's smart, adventurous and catches on to training very quickly. This handsome social boy will likely weigh around 50lbs. Low to non-shedding. -- ADOPTED

Hero is a playful, easy going character. He takes things in stride and does not get rattled too easily. Hero has a non-shedding type coat and will likely grow to be around the 65 lb mark. -- ADOPTED

Sergeant is a mellow, easy going fellow. He's happy to be with you and happy to be in his own, and he is obedient and willing to please. Sergeant has a non-shedding type coat and will likely be around 65 lbs. -- ADOPTED

Marine is a beauty of a dog who is quite quiet and methodical. She's hesitant with new things, takes her time to think through them, and then complies. It has been fun to see her blossom in personality and grow in confidence. She will likely not shed and should grow to be about 70 lbs. -- ADOPTED

Cuddly companions in the form of F1 minis available!
February 21

Eggnog, aka Eggy, is a friendly, happy-go-lucky character. He's adventurous, loves people, is receptive to obedience training and to learning new skills, while also being a big suck and snuggler. Eggy may be a light to non-shedder and could weigh 35-40lbs. -- ADOPTED

Ornament, aka Mento, is a fun, little man. He struts his stuff and shows off his skills and then falls over for a belly rub. He will likely be a low-shedder and grow up around the 30 lb mark. -- ADOPTED

Zola's and Marlo's pups at 4 weeks old
February 21

My how time flies! These guys are so tiny compared to my other pups. I can't believe they're already 4 weeks old!! They're a sweet crew alright. I believe they'll grow to be around 15-25 lbs average? The pups have several different coats and their characters are developing.

Choosing for this litter starts March 14 and the pups can start going to their new homes on March 21.

I do have several spots available in this litter. Please contact me if you're interested.

January 28

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

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.

Chicky’s and Yogi’s F1B standard goldendoodle pups available
January 3

This is the largest litter we've ever had! They have done so well and are such a very nice group of puppies!! I'm cherishing each of these little characters and I love seeing how they're developing into their own. I'm also impressed by their smarts and regal personalities.

Please contact me if you're interested in one of these lovely pups!

Chicky's and Yogi's F1B standard goldendoodle puppies at 4 weeks!
December 9

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.

Chicky's and Yogi's F1B Standard Goldendoodles born November 11
November 13

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.

Please contact me if you're interested in a pup from Chicky's and Yogi's litter, or any other litter I have available! See Current litters (on the side bar) and Tomorrow’s pups.
