Cockapoo Puppies!
divider

If you CANNOT take a pup from this litter when it is ready to go home in March, please let me know. If you are on this list, but want a pup from a later Cockapoo or mini-Doodle litter, please email sheron.steele@gmail.com. Clients without deposits may not be on this list and will not be in line for a baby Cockapoo. Please let me know if I have overlooked a deposit (send Paypal deposit date, and I’ll find it and let you know immediately. Your name/deposit could be on a list for a different Doodle hybrid. If you have requested a puppy/puppies specifically from another small Doodle litter, your name may not appear below. If you are in line for one of Gir-r-r-l and Zephyr’s pups and would like to consider a pup from a later litter, please email me sheron.steele@gmail.com.

There will be TWO GUARDIAN PUPPIES from this litter. Even if you have submitted a deposit and are on the list below, unless you are enthusiastic about being a Guardian Partner with XANADU, you may have to wait for the next litter (there should be eight more breedings for little Cockapoo Crosses. See attachment). If you are interested in XANADU’S Guardian Partnership, see attached GHFSummary document and please email me. If you love puppies, Guardianship is a great way to get our best puppy from a particular litter and to have the purchase price reimbursed. The tri-color male may be a XANADU Guardian puppy, and he’s a beauty. Our Guardian female will probably be selected at six weeks of age when eye color is expected to be more stable. Most puppies will be lower-shed (see descriptions.

I recommend that if you need a no-shed pup from this litter (any litter) that you let me know that you want a Litter Pick (or Guardian) puppy. These puppies cost more, but if shed-free and hypoallergenic are essential, the extra $250 and ability to choose first is essential. If the Litter Pick pup you hope to receive isn’t exactly what you want—maybe you get the no-shed, but not the blue eyes, or maybe the pup is too big or too little (and there is considerable variety in this litter), your deposit can roll over to the next litter.

ALL of these puppies will be sweet, playful, healthy, smart, and have great puppy breath! ALL are guaranteed for temperament, health, and genetic soundness.
In this litter, there are four female puppies and two males.
You will see four females in the first photo attachment. The Guardian calls these little girls: "Feisty-Girl" (on the left). She has a wide blaze down her head. Note Fiesty-Girl’s coat. She should be a no-shed.

"Jag-Girl" is second from left. She is pretty laid back and the white goes down the back of her head. As an adult, Jag-Girl should be reduced shed.
"CJ-Girl" is second from right. She is huge! This BIG girl will probably be no-shed as well; certainly she shouldn’t shed much.

"Jiggy-Girl" is on the right and is bigger too. Pretty colors. Jiggy-Girl should be reduced-shed as an adult.

The second pup-group photo shows pups that the Guardian calls Bolt and Valley. Boy-Bolt is the big, dark tri-color puppy. I’m guessing lower-shed, but he could surprise me and not shed at all.

ValleyBoy is the smallest puppy of all, and I’m guessing that he’ll be a no-shed. Selections for Guardian(s) and Litter Pick puppies will be at six weeks. Complete payment is due at that time.
Litter Pick puppies are $2,500

Brown-eyed puppies are $2000. Blue-eyed puppies are $2,500.

Eureka and River’s Miniature Double-Doodle Litter 
    • PLEASE NOTE THAT WE DO NOT YET HAVE CONFIRMATION OF PREGNANCY. We’ll do a sonogram in about a week and then let everyone know if Eureka and River’s breeding “took.”
      If you CANNOT pick up your pup from Eureka’s litter when it is ready to go home in April, please let me know: sheron.steele@gmail.com. If you are on this list, but want a pup from a later mini-Doodle litter, please email me at sheron.steele@gmail.com. Clients without deposits may not be on this list. Please let me know if I have overlooked your deposit...I’ll find it! It could be filed under another litter. If you have requested a puppy/puppies specifically from another small Doodle litter, your name may not appear below. If you are in line for one of Gir-r-r-l and Zephyr’s pups and would like to consider a pup from a later litter, please email me at sheron.steele@gmail.com.

      Note that the names of several persons below are on both the Goldendoodle and Cockapoo (and perhaps other) lists; help me out! Let me know which litter you’d like best, because that’s where your deposit should be filed. Remember that this pregnancy is NOT confirmed yet. IF this litter does “make,” however, there WILL be puppies available.

      There will be ONE GUARDIAN PUPPY for $1000 each from this litter. If you are interested in XANADU’S Guardian Partnership, please email me— sheron.steele@gmail.com.

    Lullaby & UberKhan’s Larger-Sized GOBERIAN Litter 
      • If you CANNOT take a pup from this litter when it is ready to go home in May, please let me know. Email me at sheron.steele@gmail.com. If you are on this list, but want a pup from a later litter, please email me. Clients without deposits are not on this list. Please let me know by email if I have overlooked a deposit...I’ll find it! Your deposit could be under another female Goberian’s name. If you have requested a puppy/puppies from another Goberian litter, your name will not appear below. If you have requested a white, a lower-shed, or a smaller Goberian, your name is not below (although there are some lower-shed genes at work here, it may not be obvious).
        If you are in line for one of Lullaby and Uber Khan’s pups and would like to consider a pup from a later litter, please email me...because it is unlikely that Lullaby can fill all requests for her startlingly blue-eyed pups (sheron.steele@gmail.com).
        There will be at least ONE GUARDIAN PUPPY from this litter. If you are interested in XANADU’S Guardian Partnership, please email me for Guardian Home description.

      If you were unable to reserve one of Lullaby and Uber Khan’s pups or if Lullaby has a smaller litter than we hope, consider the following standard-to- large upcoming breedings. Size will, of course, depend on which stud dog is chosen/available for breeding when we need his services:

      1. Bhakti & Chinook—standard-sized litter.
      2. If Cafe'Ole' is bred to UberKhan, that will be a standard-sized litter 3. Enchante' & UberKhan--standard-sized litter
      4. Zoe' X Uber Khan--standard-sized litter
      5. Eve X Paz--BIG-sized litter
      6. Magpie X UberKhan--standard-sized litter
      7. Muse X UberKhan--standard and larger-sized litter
      8. Raven X Chase--standard-sized litter
      9. Anise...possibilities, depending on stud selection
      10. Briar Rose X UberKhan--standard-sized litter

      Often there is some shuffling with Pup Selection; we’ll know more when eyes are open and color is more stable and when coat-types are more apparent; that is, at six weeks of age. Changes in selection order will be published through our XANADU Pup Alert newsletters. 

      Thank you for your interest in a XANADU puppy. Our breeding season is just beginning and so far ALL battles with blizzards have been won. Still, February, March, and sometimes April snows foil our best-made plans. Keep fingers crossed! Think PUPPIES! It would appear that XANADU will have litters / available puppies continuously through Christmas of 2017. I do hope we can avoid September breedings; that is, January, 2018-ready-for- new-home puppies.
