Labradoodle & Goldendoodle Forum
Hi Laura, welcome to DK.
Since "adopt" usually implies (to those of us involved in rescue, anyway) that you are looking for a rescue dog, I'd like to clarify that you are in fact looking to purchase a puppy from a breeder, is that correct?
If you have not already read our DK Guidelines on What To Look For In a Breeder, please do and take them to heart. This is the best guide you could find for evaluating a doodle breeder. If anyone can't measure up, run the opposite way. You are making a 12+ year commitment, so take your time.
Breeder referrals, recommendations and reviews are not permitted here in the open forums. People can send you a private message if you accept a friend request from them.
Good luck in your search.
Hi Karen, thank you-I have read your "What to look for.." and that's why I am concerned-yes I am "purchasing" a puppy-I would like to rescue another pet in a year or so however
