Lakeside Farm Puppies’ Policies

Please note: A puppy is not reserved until a deposit is made for it. Please spend a little time reading our policies below.

If you feel that our puppies would be a good fit for you, Contact Us to make a deposit.

Our Customers Care

We at Lakeside Farm Puppies do not pre-screen our customers. However, we do expect them to provide good homes for our puppies. We have sold puppies to some wonderful people across the country, and have the confidence they went to good homes. If you feel you are prepared to provide the care and attention needed to develop him/her into adulthood and beyond, we welcome you to reserve one of our puppies.

Guarantee and Health Warranty

We want every puppy to go home happy and healthy. But as it is with us humans, things can happen and go wrong in the puppy world. To ensure that all is well in it’s new environment, we recommend that your puppy be checked by a vet within seventy-two hours of going home. If there would happen to be any problems, we would need a copy of the veterinarian’s invoice and you would be reimbursed for the cost of the treatment (that amount not exceeding the cost of the puppy). We also offer a one-year genetic health guarantee on all of our puppies. See our invoice / contract for more details.

Pick-up and Delivery

Local pick-up is preferred but we do sell puppies that need to be transported. We have ground transportation to the eastern states, or we can fly your puppies to an airport in your area. Ground transportation is $275 – $375 and airline is $375. We would be glad to discuss the different options and help you decide what is best suited for you.

Deposit Policy

We operate on a first come first serve basis and request a deposit to hold a puppy. Deposits for puppies are $300.

We ask you to Contact Us before making a deposit on a certain puppy to confirm that it is still available.

The balance will be due upon pick-up (Cash or Paypal), or just prior to the puppy going home if it is transported. (Paypal payments have a 3% fee.) This is for balance payments only and does not apply to deposits.

Since things can go wrong, deposits made on litters before we have individual pictures of the puppies and before you have chosen a certain puppy are refundable. Once you have chosen a certain puppy, the deposit is no longer refundable.

Aussiedoodle Color and Pricing

With the mix between the Australian Shepherd and the Miniature Poodle, coat colors, patterns, and hair coats can vary quite a bit (even at times within the same litter).

We price our puppies largely according to color. Some colors, such as the blue merle, are not as common, resulting in a more expensive puppy than, a simply black and white puppy. However, there is absolutely nothing wrong with the cheaper puppies. They are just as cute, sweet, and healthy as the more expensive ones, only a different color.

Approximate adult weight/size of our puppies is from 15-26 lbs, depending on the size of the parents. Usually you can average the parents’ weight for an idea on the approximate weight of their puppies as adults.

Blue/Merle males $2,075.00
Blue/Merle Females $2,475.00
Apricot/white $1,575.00
Brown/white $1,275.00
Black/Tri $1,175.00
