What exactly is a Guardian Home?
It is our goal at South Carolina Little Doodles that each of our breeding dogs have a family of their own to give them the best possible life. When you become a Guardian family, you receive a pick of the litter puppy to raise and love in your own home forever, with the cost to you being nothing more than a commitment to love on your new family addition to your fullest. This affords us the opportunity to continue our breeding program, while continuing to leave a quality footprint on the Australian Labradoodle breed as a whole. We retain the breeding rights for a designated time that is established with each family.
Your dog will be spayed or neutered at our expense when their breeding career is completed.
Most importantly, your Australian Labradoodle will remain a part of your family forever!
Current Guardian Opportunity
Finn is a multi-generational Australian Labradoodle and we are so excited to add him to our program. He was born May 12th, is a carmel tuxedo and is mini and will weigh in the 18-22 lb. range. Please submit an application if you are interested in being considered for this sweet boy.
How do I know if I qualify to be a Guardian?
As a Guardian home, you will need to live within 60 miles of Florence, SC (includes Columbia, Myrtle Beach, etc.) have a fenced yard and a safe and secure environment for the Guardian puppy. You need to own your own home, not have a schedule that requires you to be away from your Guardian dog for long, extended periods of time on a regular basis. Guardian pups and dogs must be indoor dogs and not left outside unattended. Labradoodle Guardians are asked to keep their dog on Life’s Abundance dog food while in our program, provide routine veterinary care and provide for ‘normal’ costs of raising a pet, such as grooming, monthly flea/tick/heart worm preventative, etc. We do prefer Guardians that are not first time dog owners and have an established vet as a reference. Other pets are welcome to be in the home as well, but all other dogs must be neutered or spayed.
Communication is key to a successful Guardian relationship. You need to be accessible and open with us and we in return provide you with all the support that you need. We appreciate our Guardian homes as we could not continue our program without them.
