|• Oscar & Roxie|
Sunsethills Eat Your Heart Out
Riverbend's Skippin' Rox
|this litter is fully reserved:
Oscar and Roxie's caramel puppies arrived April 30th and they will be available to their new homes July 2nd. Their Small
Medium size Australian Labradoodle Puppies will have curly fleece to wavy fleece, non-shedding coats, and they will be $2500,
which includes their spay/neuter, and two sets of vaccinations.
Roxie is quite the showstopper, and she was born right here at Riverbend from one of our most successful matings between
Laguna and Lucille. Roxie captured our hearts from the instant she was born! She is easy going and happy, with a flop a
doodle personality, affectionate, sweet, curious, and very smart! Roxie has superior structure and type, excellent thickness
of bone and carries on the stamp of the Riverbend type that we love so much.
We are so excited for this much anticipated litter, and it is truely a match made in heaven. Oscar is a handsome young
gentleman! He has come all the way from Australia and we are so excited to add his Sunsethills bloodlines to our Riverbend
bloodlines. He is a small Medium size boy with a caramel fleece coat. He has wonderful bone and excellent conformation, and
you couldn't ask for a sweeter, more loving boy. We thank Sue from Alpen Ridge Labradoodles in Oregon for the opportunity
to breed to Oscar, and we can't wait for their babies to arrive!
|• Rue & Peaches|
Sunset Hill's RU Envious
Riverbend's Princess Peaches
|this litter is fully reserved:
Rue and Peaches' medium size chocolate and caramel Australian Labradoodle puppies arrived April 2nd and they will be available
to their new homes around June 4th.
Peaches is a Standard size Labradoodle and she has a beautiful caramel coat. She is a sweet, loving girl that is quiet and
cuddly. She is everything we could ever want in the bone and structure department and has been an integral part of our
breeding program, helping to stamp the look and type that we feel is so important. This is a breeding we couldn't wait to
repeat, as her first litter with Rue exceeded our highest expectations.
Rue was imported directly from Australia and he is a small Medium size Australian Multi-generational Labradoodle with a wool,
chocolate-cafe colored coat. Rue is friendly and he loves everyone he meets. He belongs to Mindi at Colonial Village
Labradoodles in Indiana, and we can't thank her enough for allowing us to use Rue in our breeding program. He has wonderful
bone and excellent conformation, and you couldn't ask for a sweeter, more loving personality. We love our Rue puppies and
have Olivia (Jay Jay and Rue mating), Cookie (a previous Peaches and Rue mating), Siri and Casino (Rue and Trixie mating),
from his former litters.
|It is not our goal to "sell" you a puppy, it is Our mission to provide a valuable family member.|
Before going to their new homes, Riverbend Australian Labradoodle puppies are Vet checked, microchipped, given age appropriate vaccinations, spayed and neutered, de-wormed routinely, and heartworm, flea, and tick preventative is started. We guarantee, in writing, the health of our puppies for two years. All puppies are sent home with complete feeding and care instructions, a shopping list, training information for a smooth transition from our home to yours, and a "litter-scented" toy from home to cuddle with. Registration paperwork and pedigree from the Australian Labradoodle Association of America will also be provided. We offer our continual support, and welcome you to draw from our knowledge and years of experience, for as long as it is needed.
|Riverbend Australian Labradoodle puppies are raised in our home, for proper socialization and handling from birth. We believe the key to a developing a healthy, rewarding relationship, lies in starting your puppy correctly. This will set the stage for a balanced, lasting relationship and a puppy that can handle transition into his new home and family quickly and easily. We start our puppies early with exposure to proper manners, house breaking, crate training, grooming, and handling. We evaluate our puppies ' individual personalities and help our families in choosing the puppy that fits best with their family, activity levels, and expectations. We welcome visits from families that would like to get to know us and our puppies, we do ask that you come straight from home, and do not stop along the way to visit other breeders to limit the possibilty of spreading germs, bacteria, or disease. Once your particular litter has arrived, you can visit after the age of four weeks, and we are happy to share that special time with you and your new family member. We will have you visit with several puppies, and sometimes the entire litter, so you are familiar with their personalities , and can be an active participant in choosing the puppy that is to join your family.
When you are ready to add a Riverbend Labradoodle puppy to your family we would ask that you call or email us directly, and share with us information about yourself and your family, your lifestyle and activity level, and things that you like to do as a family. We would like to hear about your previous pet history, and what you are looking for in the addition of a puppy to your family. We don't use forms as we would prefer to be personally involved with our families and get to know each of them. When you are ready to place a reservation, you can send a personal check to us, or leave a deposit when you come for a scheduled visit. Our deposits are refundable through the age of 4 weeks, so you have time to be sure this is the right decision for your family, and we have time to be sure we have the right family for our puppy. We will send new puppy pictures directly to you every week to ten days so your family can be involved in the growth and development of the litter.
All parents have OFA hip, OFA elbow, and ACVO eye clearances before they are bred, as well as breed specific health clearances such as prcd/PRA, heart certifications, and vWD, to ensure that we have the healthiest puppies possible. We carefully research and select only the finest dogs for our breeding program, in order to produce a Labradoodle true to type, with predictable size, temperament, and coat. Our years of dedication to breeding only the finest American and Australian lines is evident in the style and grace of a Riverbend Labradoodle. We have stamped a consistant type and look that is unmatched in the Labradoodle community.
Puppies can be shipped, at buyer's expense, from the Detroit Metro Airport in Michigan. We use Delta Airlines VIP Service or direct flights when possible, so the puppies are hand-delivered to and from the plane. Puppies are available via air after the age of 8 weeks. They will see our Veterinarian at 6 weeks and again just before leaving to ensure a current health exam and health certificate is completed. We work closely with our families to choose a major airport that is closest to them, but that still offers the most direct route. We also choose a day and time that works well with our families and their schedule, but at certain times of the year, weather temperatures may determine when we can fly our puppies. Shipping within the United States generally costs around $300 for airfare and your puppy's travel kennel, however, older puppies or International flights can be more expensive and will be priced individually. We do not charge extra for your puppy's additional Veterinary exam, health certificate, or travel to the airport, we will provide this service to you.
