8. HOW to Purchase Your XANADU Puppy + Important Information for New Puppy Owners
1. PUP SHIPMENTS: United Airlines has begun PetSafe puppy shipments after remedying previous problems. Air-conditioned puppy flights are available. Please note that puppies flying to new homes by Delta Pet Cargo must fly when the weather is cooperative with temperatures no higher than 85 degrees along the route. PREFERRED: Many new puppy owners choose to fly into a nearby airport (GJT in Grand Junction and MTJ in Montrose, CO are close to XANADU headquarters) to pick up their pups. 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.

2. Sometimes, but not often, we have a Guardian pup selection for sale as a LITTER PICK. That pup is usually a female. In a larger litter, XANADU MAY sell a Guardian (best) quality female choice as a Litter Pick female -- especially when there is no Litter Pick Male. It's unusual, because most of our Guardians are pre-sold; they are our "best" pups, according to our Breeding Goals, and sometimes Mother Nature gives us many (or ALL) female pups and few or no males for Litter Picks. And sometimes a Guardian does not sell before it is 10-weeks old. XANADU wants ALL babies to go to new homes at the best time for the pup's total health concerns.

Two Guardian puppies are offered in this Pup Alert at reduced SALE price (and offered as Guardian pups with two-litter breeding agreements), and both are exceptional in personality and appearance. Both represent XANADU Breeding Goals toward a new breed (Low-bark, calmer temperaments, playful & friendly & smart with excellent genetic lineages, etc. See ATTACHED document 2). These two pups are not offered as Litter Picks from their respective litters.

3. TRANSPORTATION & BOARDING: If you it is difficult for you to drive from Denver / surrounding area to pick up your puppy at XANADU Headquarters in Ridgway, a reliable Pup Transporter (one of our Guardians) has just made himself available to pick up your puppy for you. His name is Pat, and Pat's phone number is 719 351-8884 (wife, Kelly, may answer the phone). Please give Pat a call to inquire about pup transportation if you need help. As often noted in XANADU Pup Alerts and on our website, XANADU of the Rockies is organized as a Guardian Breeding Program. Each breeding dog has his or her own home and total care. Facilities at XANADU HQ house puppies only until they are purchased by new owners. We cannot board puppies for late pick- up to accommodate a new owner's travel / other plans. Please select a new BFF from a litter that is available for pick-up when you are ready to bring your new puppy home. If pups that have sold are not picked up when purchased and available for travel (most usually at eight weeks of age), there is no space for in-coming younger litters. I realize that you may have to postpone the purchase of a pup that you have seen advertised and have fallen in love with, and that you will need to select a pup from an upcoming litter instead. This will tug at your heart! Your pup- payment means that you are prepared to receive your puppy when it is eight-weeks old / available for pick-up or flight. THANK YOU! -- Dr. Sheron Steele, XANADU Proprietress

4. AVAILABLE PUP SUMMARY; ALL PRICES ARE REDUCED FOR THIS PUPPY SALE:

Puppies from Gidget & Cedar's Litter are Mini-Goldendoodle / Cockapoo / Goberian crosses bred to be NO-SHED, playful & friendly companions. They represent the best of XANADU characteristics in a small body. This is a LONGEVITY LITTER, with genetic excellence, great vet-checked health, and fluffy cuteness. This is an EXCEPTIONALLY quiet and smart litter of miniature Doodle puppies.

Rio Vida & Moose's Goberian Litter is standard-sized (Siberian Husky X F1 Goberian), both parent dogs with excellent genetics, and both parent dogs especially loving, calm, well-trained and obedient dogs. Ears are expected to stand up. This litter was bred for calm, loving temperaments.

Mini-Bernedoodle crosses (Cadence's Litter) will be NO-SHED, playful, responsible, good dogs. Genetic backgrounds of parent dogs are excellent, and both dam and sire are calm, quiet, much-loved, smart, responsive and very beautiful dogs. 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.

XANADU'S Mission is the development of the World's Best Family Dog. ALL of these litters' pups will be intelligent, attentive, highly-trainable adult dogs that, as noted in descriptions below, are expected to be GREAT SERVICE DOG CANDIDATES. And all of these puppies will be even calmer XANADU attachments describe. What this means is LUCKY YOU!
1. AVAILABLE -- GIDGET'S Mini NO-SHED DOODLE X Litter sired by CEDAR; Four No-Shed Puppies -- DOB: May 20, 2018 PUPPY PICK-UP: AVAILABLE NOW; Pick-Up at XANADU Headquarters in Ridgway, CO or by Arranged Transportation previously noted or Flights from the Grand Junction Airport. This breeding is by demand for YOU WHO WANT SERVICE-DOG CANDIDATES WITH GOBERIAN Qualities, BUT HAVE ALLERGIES or JUST PREFER LOW-TO-NO-SHED MINI-SIZED, BEAUTIFUL DOODLE-DOGS. This is a LONGEVITY litter -- very low bark, exceptionally well-socialized and sweet pups. All pups' eyes are a shade of hazel. With your great pup-care, pups are expected to be active, healthy family members throughout your children's entire childhood -- 17-20 years. GIDGET'S Cockapoo X pups are sired by small, perfectly-marked Goberian stud, CEDAR. Gidget is a beautiful apricot Cockapoo mini-Doodle. She is small at only 17 lb. and has the good-natured, friendly disposition expected in the XANADU Cockapoo / Golden Retriever / multi-breed, multi-generational DOODLE cross. 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. Puppies are expected to be between 17-to-30 lb. as adults; the Guardian expects pups to be even smaller. Sizes will vary somewhat, because parent and grandparent sizes vary. XANADU offers very FEW LOW or NO-SHED puppies; these pups are AVAILABLE now.

Our Guardian Puppy selection is tri-color female, Tika, who has a soft Husky- marked coat that is low-to-no-shed. Please call me if you are interested in Tika: 970 708-8030. Three white pups are also AVAILABLE. Prices for Gidget and Cedar's Litter: Guardian Pup, $950 w/ 6 - pup Breeding Agreement Litter Pick Male, $1975 Hazel-eyed Pet Home pups: $1775 Descriptions of Gidget & Cedar's Litter follow, and these descriptions are by Gidget's Guardian (and notice how often she emphasizes calm, snuggly personalities. This isn't always the norm for small dogs or Doodle crosses. Many Doodles are not known for being calm, but this litter is special in that regard, and wonderful). Expect playful, very low-bark, smaller puppies in this litter.
A. FEMALE, TIKA -- Guardian Selection (See description above. Sweet, VERY pretty girl with traditional Husky markings & shorter, soft coat. Should be a lower-shed, even no-shed girl. Light Hazel eyes. Sale Price $950 w/ Breeding Agreement
B. 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 seen him. Chill when held and LOVES being held. 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 a very fluffy coat, resembling his father’s coat. Milo has a and hazel eyes and a European Cockapoo body style with shorter legs.
C. MALE, ALFALFA -- Alfalfa is the smallest of the litter.
He has a pink-brown nose, a wavy cream-colored coat and steel gray eyes. Milo is a sweet boy who’s extremely easy going and takes everything in stride. He will be no-shed. I anticipate that Alfalfa will only be 12-15 lbs. fully grown. NOTE: Sheron's guess is that he'll be a bit larger.
D. MALE, TIKO White Long Hair thick and wavy (No-Shed); undercoat is tan. Another sweet, playful puppy. Tiko is 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 hazel eyes and a beautiful thick coat. Note: I'd guess Tiko will be 23-25 lb. He doesn't smile for photos!
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 PICK MALE is YOSHI (selected by me, so the Guardian could take a pup home, too),

GUARDIAN, & PET HOME Puppies AVAILABLE. For those of you who like the Siberian look, ears are expected to stand up. Guardian Pup, $1250 or as noted Litter Pick Male $1975 Litter Pick Female, $2250 Blue-eyed & bi-eyed Pet Home pups: $1875 Pet Home Brown-eyed pups: $1750
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 blue eyes. Vanity options like blue eyes do cost more, even during sales. NOTES from Guardian, Nancee and from me, follow.

"The puppies are so cute and so active now. They love to be outside running and playing in the yard. Puppies play with and are dog-socialized by a pup-loving Border Collie and a 60-lb. Goberian, which is cute to watch. Roxie has blue eyes, Coco and Rosanne have bi-colored eyes and Yoshi has dark brown eyes. Pups are so much fun, quiet, beautiful, and love attention."

Puppies may be picked up at XANADU Headquarters in Ridgway, CO, or your puppy 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 (Grand Junction Airport [GJT] or Montrose Airport (MTJ). Photos of Rio Vida and sire Moose are also ATTACHED. Photos of Rio Vida's individual babies are also attached as noted below. DOB: June 2, 2018 Puppy Pick-Up: Available NOW.

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 could have two litters. This is a bi-eyed, blue & brown-eyed) beautiful UNUSUAL tri-color female. Markings are often called "agouti."
B. FEMALE, ROXIE. Rio Vida's Guardian notes: Roxie
and Coco both have the bright blue eyes like their Dad, Moose. Gorgeous with the white/cream coat.
C. FEMALE COCO. As noted above, bright blue eyes
and calm, sweet, playful personality. Cream / white coat. Coco has a very light cream-colored coat. Her nose is turning dark. Coco is a sweet, gentle girl! She loves to explore and play with her pupmates. She loves to be held and to cuddle. May be blue or bi-eyed.
D. (Only Available Male) YOSHI -- Yoshi has a cream-colored coat that is thick and a bit wavy around neck & shoulders. Yoshi is confident, healthy boy. He is playful, and loves to explore. He’s loves to play & cuddle up with his siblings as well as be held & will snuggle up & fall asleep in your
lap. He’s smart, not aggressive and you can often find him wrestling happily with one of his sisters.
3. CADENCE'S MINI-BERNEDOODLE CROSS with The DURANGO KID ALL PUPS EXPECTED TO BE NO-SHED (See Notes Below). See dam, Cadence, and sire, Durango Kid. Please note that Bernedoodle X Pups are multigenerational crosses to calm both the Bernese & Poodle influence (although Cadence is already a calm female Bernedoodle and easy-going family dog!). Multigenerational Bernedoodle crosses of this kind are more expensive than our other litters. 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 30-35 lb. as adults. While they will be active puppies; they are also sweet, friendly, good pups. NOTE that Cadence & Durango's pup-family will have calmer characteristics than other Bernedoodle Litters, mini or standard. PET HOME Puppies AVAILABLE. including PUPPIES HAVE BLUE EYES! This is unique to XANADU. Bernedoodle crosses.

Always try to have several pups in mind that you could love to pieces, in case your favorite 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 most beautiful 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. Also attached is a "House Training Guide." These 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 several weeks to prevent tummy upsets.
