For over 9 years, we have been breeding Sheepadoodles for health, beauty and temperament. Puppies are hand-raised inside our home where they get an abundance of love and attention. We use Puppy Culture methods for early neurological stimulation.
Our puppies are standard size ranging in weight from 50-80 lbs. We have four dams and one sire. All live in our home and are part of our family.
We stand behind each puppy we sell. Puppies come with 2 year genetic health guarantee!
Cosmo is an F2 sheepadoodle, 60 lbs, and the most amazing tempered dog ever! He is our sire and loves his puppies and watches over them diligently. He is cleared for 152 diseases. He is goofy, extremely obedient and over-the-top loving. He diligently watches over our one-acre property and guards "his sheep". His favorite activity is playing with my son and his friends. If the kids are outside, so is Cosmo!
Stormy is our F1 Blue Merle. She has been genetically cleared from any inherited diseases. She has passed her cardiac and eye OFA exams. She is a smart, beautiful and obedient girl with one blue eye.
Piper and Paisley are future AZ Sheepadoodles mamas. They are both 100% clear on Embark genetic panel. They are busy playing and getting into trouble right now. Both are sugar sweet and people focused. Paisley is a little smaller than Piper. These girls will be ready next year.
Gracie is an AKC Standard Poodle, genetically clear of any diseases via Embark Genetics. She is incredibly docile and obedient. Her adoring stares melt everyone she comes in contact with!
Sheepadoodles are a unique doodle in that both parent breeds are mostly non-shedding. This means their hair grows and grows and has to be cut. Old English do have a double coat that will shed quite a bit, but more like a human sheds hair (just in large quantities). The Poodle has a single dense coat that does not shed.
In contrast, most other doodles have one parent that is a HIGHLY shedding breed (like a Retriever) so they must breed back to the Poodle several times to achieve any sort of low to no shed dog. Almost any way you mix a Sheepadoodle you will get a non-shedding, hypoallergenic dog. Unless you breed back to the Old English Sheepdog from Sheepadoodle then you may bring in some of the double coat. My F2's multi-gen pups have been swab tested and placed in homes with EXTREME allergies with great success. These families were not able to even go into a home with a Labradoodle or Goldendoodle. The F's just refer to which pairing. F1 is the first crossing of Sheepdog and Poodle, F1b is a Sheepadoodle back to a Poodle or the OES, F2 is two Sheepadoodles (just like you would breed two German Shepherds etc) and F2b is F2 Sheepadoodle back to poodle. Each pairing is hypoallergenic. What you should look for is health and temperament within the parents because, as they say, the apple doesn't fall far from the tree!
Often times people underestimate the development that happens in the first 8 weeks of a puppy's life. Every day is critical for a puppy's growth. They are learning from the moment they are born whether to feel secure or insecure and this goes with them a lifetime. You may have had dogs that are neurotic, or timid, or aggressive and wonder why. Well, part is genetics and breeding, but a large part is how they are raised those first 8 weeks. We provide a loving and hygienic space inside our home for the puppies to thrive. They are only learning to trust and explore, never to fear or feel hunger. So many breeders stick puppies in a shed and churn out puppies at alarming rates, regardless of what that is doing to these little cuties. Families then wonder why their dogs have so many behaviors like eating their own poo, timidity, food aggression, people aggression, accidents in their kennels etc. All these behaviors stem from how they were raised the first 8 weeks. You may not get a puppy from me, but take my advice and get a puppy raised in someone's home with an abundance of love, attention and stimuli.
Every puppy comes with breeder for life benefits. If at any time, during the life of your puppy, you need to rehome him we will take him back and find a suitable home. You will also receive back any money that is collected during this process. Our #1 goal is to make sure each puppy has his furrever family, forever.
I know your biggest question is, how do I adopt a puppy from AZ Sheepadoodles? Friends and family of previous puppy families get priority within litter picks. I will not ship puppies cargo, so you need to be local or willing to fly and place puppy in the cabin with you. My preference is that puppies remain in Arizona, so they can join in on the group puppy playdates etc. However, I have had several pups travel to different states.
First, you will need to click on the application button at the top of this page and fill out an application. This will date stamp your interest, and I will take that into consideration when placing puppies. I do not take deposits until mama has been successfully bred. Once you have been picked as a puppy family, I will send you instructions on how to pay your deposit. Puppies are $2900 with $500 deposit (unless otherwise stated). Puppy picks are at 6 weeks (at my home in Peoria or via Facetime if you are not local) and go home at 8 weeks. I do offer a one week Puppy Kindergarten, hosted by my amazing mom. She has a 2 acre horse ranch nearby, and loves to crate train puppies and teach them basics before going to their furever homes. Previous families have been extremely thrilled with her results! Kindergarten is $600 for the week. Keep in mind she only takes up to four puppies in order to give the utmost care and attention. Once we have confirmed breeding, I will go through applications and start contacting families. After you have been chosen, you can then put down a deposit to hold your puppy! We are a small breeder and do not churn out puppies in mass quantity, so please be patient. I guarantee you, your AZ Sheepadoodles puppy will be well worth the wait!
