HERE for an amazing video of one very lucky Moss Creek Goldendoodle being
picked up and going to his forever home.
Parvo outbreaks in Florida and the US, we can no longer allow visitors to our
home. You will be able to pick up your puppy and meet the parents when your
puppy is 8 weeks old. We realize many people like to meet the parents of their
prospective Goldendoodle puppy and see where they live prior to making a purchasing decision;
this is for the safety and well being of our dogs and your future puppy.
last summer, a friend and fellow breeder allowed visitors to see and play with 1
puppy from 2 different litters. They were the only puppies available out of
21. A week later, all the puppies started to get sick. They had Parvo and the
breeder ended up losing all 21 puppies. She contacted the family that had
visited and they admitted visiting 2 other breeders and a pet store that day.
This is tragic but you can see how one family can unknowingly carry this puppy
disease to many breeders. We can no longer risk this happening with our
is an opportunist and deadly disease that can kill a puppy/litter in a matter of
24 hours. It is shed by infected dogs and can live for months, even years, on
surfaces such as concrete and grass. Even though you may not even own a dog,
simply by visiting a park or pet store, you could pick up Parvo on your shoes
and carry it back to our home when you visit. While vaccines are effective,
your new puppy will not have full immunity until it's last set of puppy shots,
16 weeks. There is a window when the puppy’s immunity from Mom wears off and
they don't yet have full protection from vaccines.
wish to see a doodle or learn more about Moss Creek and how we raise our
puppies, we can refer you to our Vet, our Forum or previous puppy buyers. We
have 'Doodle Romps' every few months. A romp is the perfect place to meet lots
of Doodles of all different sizes and colors. Feel free to post where you live
on the forum, there's sure to be a McDoodles puppy nearby you can visit. Our puppies
are temperament tested and we take pictures of our puppies at birth and every
week until they go to their new homes. You will have hundreds of pictures of
your puppy by the time they leave us.
is time to come and pick up your puppy, we request that you do not visit any
other kennels, pet stores, breeders, or places where there could be unvaccinated
dogs. Please also shower and wear freshly washed clothes the day of your visit
to our home.
way home with your new puppy, if you have to stop at a rest area, please carry
your puppy to a more secluded spot. Try to find an out of the way place to let
your puppy potty. When you go to your Vet, carry your puppy in and place it on
the table; don’t let it walk across the floor where a sick dog could have been.
Until your puppy has had its last set of puppy vaccines, 16 weeks, you need to
treat it like it has no immune system and avoid high risk situations such as
parks and pet stores.
apologize for the disappointment this may cause some families who would just
like to visit our doodles. Because our puppies are spoken for before they're
born, we feel it's our responsibility to our new puppy families to keep their
puppy safe and healthy while it's here at Moss Creek.
