GUARDIAN HOME OPPORTUNITIES

Here at JennaLee Designer Doodles, we believe that each dog deserves the best home it can possibly have, complete with all the love and attention that any puppy deserves. In order to ensure that each puppy is in the best home possible, we feel we need to limit the number of dogs we have here on our premises. Occasionally, we will have one of our puppies, or a puppy we are purchasing to be a part of our breeding program, available to go to an approved guardian home. You will be getting one of the best dogs we have to offer at a steeply discounted rate in exchange for your assistance when it is time for the dog to be bred. Read below to find out more about this opportunity and please fill out the application below if you think  you may be a good fit for our guardian home program. 

The Verhanovitz Family with guardian home dog, "Oscar"

DOGS CURRENTLY IN NEED OF 

GUARDIAN HOMES:

Gent is coming to us all the way from Mississippi to be the patriarch of our sheepadoodle program! This handsome boy has TWO gorgeous blue eyes and is the happiest dog on earth! He loves to play all the time and will keep you laughing! Gipson is crate trained but will mark inside as many intact males do. He will either need to spent a large amount of his free time outside or be trained to stop marking if he lives indoors. He also does well with female dogs ONLY! 

Miss green collar was selected from Fendi's litter as the pick of the litter breeders pick! She resembles her momma's super sweet temperament with her daddy's good looks! This blue merle beauty will be one of her mom's replacements as she gets older and is looking for a guardian home in the Charleston area! If you would like for her to join your family as you join ours, check out the requirements and apply below!

REQUIREMENTS:

 

* Guardian must live within a 45 minute drive of breeder's home in Charleston, SC.

 

* Legal ownership of the dog (microchip #_____________) remains with the breeder until the dog has produced appropriate number of litters (less for females, more for males) at which time the dog will be spayed or neutered at the expense of the breeder. Full ownership of the dog will then be transferred to the guardian.

 

* Guardian has no right to puppies produced by this dog or to semen produced by the dog.   

 

 

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF BEING A GUARDIAN HOME?

 

Being a guardian home for our breeding puppies has many perks, as well as responsibilities. We strive for a mutually beneficial relationship between ourselves and our guardian homes. Firstly, the rate you will pay for your puppy is steeply discounted. We only require you to pay the deposit cost of any of our puppies, being $250. Price may increase if the puppy is older than 8 weeks of age and has received additional vet visits or training. You will recieve one of the best puppies we can produce or a 'pick of the litter' puppy from another breeder from which we purchase the puppy. We look for quality structures, coats, and personalities in all the dogs we buy to become one of our breeding dogs. Also, we do provide lifetime support for each of these puppies as we want them to be the best they can be. Also, since we do require you to live within a 45 minute drive of our home in Charleston, SC we extend an the offer for the dog to stay at our home when the family goes out of town and needs to have the dog boarded. This helps us, the guardian dog, and our dogs, to be familiar with one another when it comes time to breed or whelp a litter. Also, when the dog has whelped or fathered an appropriate number of litters, they will be spayed or neutered at no cost to you. Additionally, for those who house female dogs, they will be compensated $250 for each litter the dog has as a "thank you" for your patience while your beloved pet is away.
