1. GIDGET & CEDAR'S Mini Low & NO-SHED Goberian / Doodle Litter; Males & Females AVAILABLE
5. HOW to Reserve Your XANADU Puppy + Important Information for New Puppy Owners
Please note that puppies that will be flying to new homes by Delta Pet Cargo must be a full 8-weeks old and the weather must cooperate. It really is best to fly into Denver International Airport / another airport, pick up your puppy, and fly home with puppy in the cabin with you. Please check the airline carrier you choose for regulations about pups in cabin (size of soft-sided crate, ticket price for pup--usually around $100--etc.) The various airline carriers have company-specific regulations.

The following litters are XANADU multigenerational / multibreed crosses that represent XANADU Breeding Goals (See ATTACHED document 2) . Puppies are dominantly Goberian crosses (Gidget & Cedar's Litter, Rio Vida & Moose's Litter, Magpie & Uber Khan's Litter) and Bernedoodle crosses (Cadence's Litter). Please see attached documents, Goberian Characteristics, Attachment 3 and Bernedoodle Characteristics, Attachment 4). These attachments will let you know if you want to see XANADU'S Breeding Goals in your new BFF. You can also decide if you are interested in the characteristics of the Goberian and the Bernedoodle. And if you are, read on...XANADU'S Mission is the development of the World's Best Family Dog.
Because we have MANY pups available right now from some larger litters, when you write to Mandi about your puppy selections / wishes, please (if you can) attach the photo(s) also of the pup(s) about which you are inquiring. This will help with accurate communication.
1. AVAILABLE -- GIDGET'S Mini Low & NO-SHED Goberian X Litter by CEDAR -- ONLY AT XANADU of the ROCKIES at this time, and not available anywhere else on Planet Earth. LITTER PICKS, GUARDIAN, & PET HOME Low/No-Shed Puppies
DOB: May 20, 2018
PUPPY PICK-UP: July 12-19

This litter is by special request: Pups should be low-to-no- shed, and this RARE, hard-to-find multi-cross is sometimes called a "SiberPoo." We call these pups "Mini Low-to-No-Shed Goberians," because this description best represents the dominant gene pool, and is more accurate for XANADU pups. Genetically, puppies represent the inclusion of the Golden Retriever (with perfect genetic background) / multigenerational Mini- Doodles, too. This breeding is by demand for YOU WHO WANT GOBERIAN Qualities, BUT HAVE ALLERGIES or JUST PREFER THE LOW-TO-NO-SHED Characteristics of the Low-to-No-Shed Goberian.

GIDGET'S pups are sired by small, perfectly-marked Goberian stud, CEDAR. Gidget is a beautiful apricot multigenerational mini-Doodle. She is small at 17 lb. and has the good-natured, friendly disposition expected in XANADU Golden Retriever / multi-breed, multi-generational crosses. Gidget has warm, expressive light brown eyes, is no-shed, and is very friendly to other dogs, as well as their humans. She was very easy to train and is a natural heeler off leash. CEDAR is a fabulously beautiful, active smaller Goberian who has one blue eye and one brown eye. Gidget's photo and sire-Cedar's photos are ATTACHED. Please see attachments 5 & 6.

Puppies are expected to be between 13-to-30 lb. as adults; the Guardian expects pups to be even smaller. Sizes will vary, because parent and grandparent sizes vary. XANADU offers very FEW LOW or NO-SHED GOBERIAN X puppies; please reserve at this time.

Our Guardian Puppy selection is either a tri-color female, Tika, who has a soft Husky-like shorter coat, or our Guardian may be Kasha. Kasha is a light apricot and white with longer Doodle coat, wavy and soft. It is possible that both females could be selected as Guardian females and have one litter each in the future. Please call me if you are interested in one of these pretty females.
Three white pups are also AVAILABLE as LITTER PICKS & PET HOME selections & can Fly to New Homes on July 19; earlier pick-up in Denver area if you are driving to get your pup.

Prices for Gidget and Cedar's Litter:
Guardian Pup, $1250
Litter Pick Male and Female, $2885
Brown-eyed Pet Home pups: $2250

Descriptions of Gidget & Cedar's Litter of six follow, and these descriptions are by Gidget's Guardian (and notice how often she emphasizes calm, snuggly personalities. This isn't the norm for small pups or Doodle crosses, but it is wonderful). Expect playful, very low-bark, calmer small Goberian-Doodles in this litter (and that's rare!)
A. FEMALE, TIKA -- Guardian Selection (See description above. Sweet, VERY pretty girl with traditional Husky markings and      shorter, soft coat. Should be a lower-shed girl. Eye color is uncertain just now;      probably hazel. If two Guardian females are selected, each will have five pups  for XANADU (probably just one litter).
B. FEMALE, KASHA, Possible Guardian Selection -- Kasha (the Guardian's       Favorite (Attachment 8). Note by Guardian, Christina: "Kasha is more of a  Doodle with a longer coat that will be apricot in color with four pretty white socks, a white muzzle and white stripe up her brow. She has brown eyes and a black nose and is 100% confident, and loveable. If she’s out of the kennel,      she’ll be with you. At four weeks, she was marching along beside me like she owned the house. She’s barked at me once when I wouldn’t pick her up    which is stinking cute. She’s on the smaller size of the litter but I think she’ll be around 15 lbs."
C. FEMALE, MILLY is the ONLY White female (No-Shed) . Milly has a pink nose and beautiful tan ears. She has a relatively thick coat,   and it’s wavy and should be little-to-no-shed. I think she will be 20 lbs. full  grown, maybe a bit less. She’s another sweetie that loves to be held. She’s not yippy, but prefers to curl up and take a nap when she’s been left alone. 
D. MALE, TIKO White Long Hair thick and wavy (No-Shed); undercoat is tan . Another sweet, playful puppy. Tiko is about the same size as Milly and I anticipate he will be 15-20 lbs. fully grown. He is a silly boy and a sweetie. He’s usually playing with his sister Kashi or racing her to the kennel gate for play times. He’s an explorer and loves attention from his humans. Tiko is all white head-to-toe except for his tan little ears. He has   an adorable pink nose that has a few little black dots just at the tip. He has     steel gray eyes that will probably turn hazel and like his sister Milly, he has a beautiful thick, wavy coat.
E. MALE, MILO -- Milo is the biggest pup of the bunch Chunky boy w/ Husky-fluff coat . Milo is a favorite puppy of many who have seenhim. Chill when held and LOVES being held. Husky personality / Husky-  talker. He’s a lover. He’s perfectly content to sit in your lap while you’re watching TV and to just hang out with you. He is not only the largest by    weight, but he also has the fluffiest coat, resembling more of his Husky-     father’s coat than his mother's Doodle coat. I think coat, size, and shape, he’s      going to be more husky-like than doodle-y. Milo has a pink nose and steel gray-blue eyes which will most likely turn, but sometimes pink-nosed pups retain their blue eyes -- and that'd be very pretty.
F. MALE, ALFALFA -- Alfalfa is the smallest of the litter. (Photo Attachment 12)        He has a pink nose, a wavy cream-colored coat and steel gray eyes (expected to  turn). Milo is a sweet boy who’s extremely easy going and takes everything in stride. He will be little-to-no-shed and appears to be developing a little darker fur on his ears that may also frame his forehead as well. I anticipate thatAlfalfa will only be 12-15 lbs. fully grown.
2. GOBERIAN LITTER out of RIO VIDA & sired by MOOSE -- Goberian Rio Vida is just so sweet; that's all! And Mr. Moose is a gorgeous tri-color AKC Siberian Husky with blue eyes -- calm and obedient; I like that! With very calm Rio Vida for a mom and calm Moose for the daddy, THIS IS A FAVORITE GOBERIAN LITTER. LITTER PICKS, GUARDIAN, & PET HOME Puppies AVAILABLE. Ears are expected to stand up.

Guardian Pups, $1250 or as noted
Litter Pick Male and Female, $2885
Blue-eyed & bi- eyed pups: $2650
Brown-eyed pups: $2250

Hazel-eyed pups are usually the same price as the brown-eyed puppies. Green eyes usually turn hazel. The price for pups with clear bright green eyes would have to be negotiated--and these pups are rare.

Remember that brown eyes are dominant, and a puppy with warm brown eyes is just as sweet and smart and healthy as a pup with bright blue eyes. Vanity options do cost more.
NOTE from Guardian, Nancee, follows.

"The puppies are so cute and so active now. They love to be outside running and playing in the yard. Bella (XANADU Name, Rio Vida) plays with them, too, which is cute to watch. The two pups, Coco and Roxie still have the blue eyes, Rosie, Marley and Lily have bi- colored eyes and I think the two boys, Yoshi and Rocky may both have brown eyes but time will tell. We’re enjoying them immensely..."

These puppies are in San Mateo, CA, and it is possible to pick up your pup in CA. Puppies that are not sold/delivered in CA will come to CO and can be picked up on the western slope of the Rockies at XANADU HQ. Pups can also be flown to you, or you can fly in to pick up your puppy and take him/her home with you in the cabin of the plane (either from CA or CO).

DOB June 2, 2018
Selection of Guardian, Litter Pick Pups, and Pet Home Pups begins at 6-Weeks,        July 12, 2018
Pups Can Go to New Homes from July 28, 2018
A. GUARDIAN FEMALE, ROSANNE, Pretty, sweet, playful, tri-color, Husky-marked female. Our Guardian will have a Breeding Agreement for 10 pups (minimum), with compensation for each pup. Ten-  pup litters happen at XANADU, but it is likely that Rosanne will have two     litters. This is a bi-eyed, blue & brown-eyed) beautiful female.
B. FEMALE, ROXY, Rio Vida's Guardian notes: (Female   pups) Roxie and Coco both have the bright blue eyes like their Dad, Moose. I    do think they’ll retain them since they’re so, so blue and just gorgeous with the white/cream coat. They are both sweet girls but Roxie is a bit more   dominant than Coco for sure.
C. FEMALE COCO, As noted above, bright blue eyes and  calm, sweet, playful personality. Cream / white coat. Coco has a   whitish/beige coat with thick short fur. She has a bit of light brown/beige  color around her nose area & a cute speckled nose which is unique! Plus she has the bluest eyes of all the puppies (the most like her Dad's) although that can change. Coco is a sweet, gentle girl! She loves to explore and play with her pupmates. Although she’s on the gentler side, she still loves to wrestle around with some of her bigger siblings! She loves to be held and cuddle and can often be found cuddling up with her siblings after eating. She’s loves to explore her  environment. 
D. FEMALE, MS. MARLEY, Ms. Marley’s a black & white         short, wavy-furred puppy. She has white markings are on her face, chin, chest area & tummy as well as paws & the tip of the tail. She is currently bi-color         eyed (one blue & one brown eye ). Very nice. Ms. Marley is an independent      girl! She’s one of the smallest of the litter but she doesn’t let it stop her. She’s   playful, curious & loves to explore and play with her pupmates. She will      follow me around more than some of the other puppies. She's a smart pup,       too -- gentle, sweet girl. She loves to cuddle to and be held now and will lick        your face all over.
E. FEMALE LILLY -- Lilly is mostly white-coated and has    short soft fur. She gets the white color from her mom, who looks like a white   smaller Golden Retriever. She does have a touch of beige around the nose  area on her face (from her tri-color Dad) although she is the most white- coated of all the puppies. Her eyes are blue , although that might change.
Lily is a sweet, gentle girl. She’s very playful and loves to hang with her       pupmates. She’s not very vocal -- just goes with the flow more than others.      You can often find her playing with her sisters Coco or Roxie or all cuddled        up together after they’ve had a meal. While she does explore, she takes her        time and seems to take things in stride. I think she’ll be an easy dog to train       and very obedient & loyal. She reminds me of her mom, Rio Vida in that   she’s gentle and sweet and on the more mellow side.
F. MALE YOSHI -- Yoshi has more of an apricot/cream-   colored coat that is thick and a bit wavy around neck & shoulders. He does have a bit of a white stripe on his face, and his back hindquarters are a lighter cream color. He currently has blue eyes too which may change over time. Yoshi is a confident, healthy boy. He is the bigger of the two male puppies  and is playful, and loves to explore. He’s a bit of a talker especially when he’s       tired and hungry. He’s loves to play & cuddle up with his siblings as well as      be held & will snuggle up & fall asleep on us anytime. He’s smart, not aggressive but will definitely join in with his siblings to play, and you can often find him going one-on-one wrestling with one of his pupmates.
G. MALE ROCKY. Rocky has a soft, thick fur coat like a   husky. Rocky's coat is whitish/cream with beige around the face, ears, neck      & shoulders and down his back that blends into white. He has a white stripe      down his face too. His eyes are blue, but that can change with time. Rocky is a     sweet guy and the smaller of the two males. He seems to go with the flow and     take things in stride. He’s not very vocal, but will definitely join in & play   & wrestle & sleep with his pupmates. He loves to bite the pup-toys, any paper   around, and         blankets in his whelping box. He’s definitely loves to cuddle &         will lick you      all over the face but then bite your nose or chin (not hard       though). He loves to sleep on his back with his paws up in the air, which  is just         adorable. 
Please note that Bernedoodle X Pups are multigenerational crosses to calm both the Bernese & Poodle influence (although Cadence is already a calmer female Bernedoodle and easy-going family dog anyhow!). Multigenerational Bernedoodle crosses of this kind are more expensive than our other litters, depending on color patterns and no-shed qualities. That is because the Bernese Mountain Dog and Bernedoodles are so expensive to work with. Add "mini" to that mix AND genetic testing for parent dogs, and prices go even higher. XANADU will have very few Bernedoodle crosses in the future, because characteristics will be absorbed into our multigenerational XANADU Dog. Puppies from this litter should be between 30-38 lb. as adults. While they will be active puppies, they are also sweet, friendly pups. NOTE that Cadence & Durango's pup-family will have calmer characteristics than most Bernedoodle Litters, mini or standard . LITTER PICKS, GUARDIAN, & PET HOME Puppies AVAILABLE. Selection of puppies begins now -- at Six Weeks, BECAUSE MANY of THESE PUPPIES HAVE BLUE EYES! YOU WON'T FIND THAT ELSEWHERE.

At this time, Puppy Cargo Flights are through Delta Airlines, and are only permitted when temperatures along the route are under 85 degrees. It is also possible to hire someone to bring your puppy to you in the cabin of a plane.

At birth, we know the general coat color and gender of each puppy; later we'll know pup eye colors. Pup Alert subscribers are the first to see baby pictures. Photos are also posted on our website: www.xanadoodle.com. Contacting XANADU directly for a Guardian, Litter Pick, or Pet Home pup OR receiving and responding to this newsletter is the fastest way to get the pup you want. Always try to have several pups in mind that you could love to pieces, in case your favorite becomes a Guardian pup selection (and you are not in a position to provide a Guardian home and rear a litter) or in case a pup you have your eye on has already been selected.

ALL XANADU pups are equally healthy, sweet, smart, and loving regardless of puppy-selection order. Because people realize appreciate our Breeding Goals, many times selection is based on what is cute in the eyes-of-the-beholder; that is, vanity considerations of eye color, coat color and pattern, etc.

Please refer to the attached document, "How to Select a Puppy," which will help you no matter which breeder may have the new BFF you want. Also, many of our puppies will be going to new homes in just a few days. The attachment, "Supplies for New Pup Owners" will help you plan for your new baby. Almost all of XANADU'S babies are eating Science Diet Puppy (either large breed or regular, depending on pup size). This is a well-balanced dry food and veterinarian recommended. If you choose to use a different food in the future, please transition over a couple of weeks.

 Thank you for considering a XANADU puppy. Remember that you are always welcome to contact us with any questions -- for the life of your dog. I may not always know the answers to your questions, but often can refer you to someone who is knowledgeable in that area.

 To qualify for ownership of a XANADU dog, excellent care of your new family member is required in the rearing of a loving, responsible, good furry-family- member: Love, exercise, training, a great diet, excellent vet care...Also required is that you LOVE your new puppy when you receive him/her. Your puppy is guaranteed to love you back.

My best to each one of you. Let us know if we can help you in your search for a new fur-kid family member!
