The Guardian Home program allows a forever family to raise and love a 'pick-of-the-litter' puppy for a minimal cost. Rum River selects a puppy we feel has all the wonderful qualities we look for in our labradoodles. We look for coat, confirmation and most of all temperament. Testing for our breeding program starts as young as 16 weeks and is completed by around 1 year old.
After testing is completed, if we choose to place the dog into our breeding program she will still continue to live in the guardian home. During the 6-8 week period when she whelps and rears her puppies she will live in our home, with our family. As dogs vary, so do agreements for many reasons but it is usually a 3 litter agreement.
After leaving the breeding program, Rum River spays the dog and she lives out her life in just the same place she has always lived...with her caring forever family. It is a wonderful 'win-win' situation.
If we choose not to place her/him in our program, Rum River spays her/him and they remain with the guardian home as their forever family.
We don't entrust our beautiful puppies to just anyone! Besides giving our furry babies a forever home we ask that you -
