NOW ACCEPTING DEPOSITS
The deposit list is ordered by when the deposits were received. You are welcome to be on more than one deposit list. By being on the deposit list you will be notified FIRST when a litter is bred via email. You will then get the opportunity to be added to that wait list. Add the end of that week families will be added to the wait list in order of when their deposit was received. After that, families will be added to the list on a first come first serve basis. When the litter is born, we will let them families know if a puppy will be available to them or not. Families remain on the general deposit list until they are matched with their puppy.
If you're still deciding on a puppy and would like to receive emails about our upcoming sheepadoodle litters, please fill out the form below! This will ensure you to get the most up-to-date communication on sheepadoodle adoption at JLDD!
Adopting a Sheepadoodle | What to Know
A Sheepadoodle can be a friendly and intelligent addition to your family. Their gentle and obedient disposition make them a wonderful companion for many people, and their non-shedding coat won’t leave fur on your furniture.
Because they are not a pure breed, sheepadoodles tend not to have the health issues of many pedigree breeds. With a life span of 12 to 15 years, you and your furry friend will enjoy many years together.
A mix of sheepdog and poodle, the Sheepadoodle weighs 40-55 pounds and can have a curly or straight coat.
The color can be black or white or both, or solid brown or gray. Other colors include a combination of white and red, merle, sable, and many others. Floppy ears and medium eyes complete this breed’s adorable teddy-bear look.
At JennaLee Designer Doodles, we care about your Sheepadoodle as much as you do. From birth to the day you take your puppy home, your Sheepadoodle will receive tender loving care. By the time he/she joins your family, your puppy will have already begun crate and potty training.
We offer puppy training packages that you can purchase to make the transition to your home a bit easier. We also make the adoption process as smooth as possible for you and your new family member.
Our Adoption Process
The first step in adopting your Medium Sheepadoodle is to fill out an application. You’ll describe what type of puppy you’d like to adopt, such as coloring, gender, and personality. For example, are you looking for a puppy who is energetic or more laid back? Do you prefer a pup with a solid or parti color coat?
You’ll also let us know your ideal timeframe and any specific needs you or your family may have. Once we receive your application, we will promptly review it and send you an email response.
Next, you’ll reserve your place in the puppy waiting list with a non-refundable $500 deposit. Once the puppies are born, you’ll receive an email with information about the litter, such as colors and gender. We cannot guarantee a particular puppy will be available for you while you wait your turn.
You can always transfer your deposit to another litter if your needs change, or you would like to consider other puppies.
Picking Your Medium Sheepadoodle Puppy
The litter is six weeks old, and it’s time for the fun part — picking your sheepadoodle puppy! You can either attend a picking party at our facility or watch emailed videos of the puppies. The email will include personality profiles to help you choose a puppy, and our team is always there to help assist in the process of matching you with your perfect puppy.
You’ll then rank the puppies according to your preferences, and we’ll match puppies with applicants based on their top choices and date we received the deposit. At this time, your remaining balance will be due.
Finally! Your puppy is eight weeks old and is ready to come home with you. After you sign our puppy contract, your Sheepadoodle will be on its way.
Medium Sheepadoodle Puppy Healthcare
When you bring your sheepadoodle puppy home, a period of adjustment will follow for you and your newest family member. That’s why we provide an information packet with tips for puppy care. For example, your puppy may cry in their crate or refuse to eat.
A litter-scented blanket in the crate may help, but the pup may simply have to cry itself to sleep. Appetite loss can be scary, but some tasty broth added to their food can help.
Ear and Eye Problems
Other common health issues include ear infections, itchy skin or hot spots, allergies, and digestive upsets. Ear infections are common in sheepadoodles because their floppy ears trap moisture, which promotes yeast and bacteria growth. Keep ear hair plucked and use a drying ear wash to prevent infections. Your veterinarian can prescribe medications for ear infections or irritation.
Sheepadoodle Hot Spots
Your pup may repeatedly chew, lick or scratch a bug bite or other irritation. Sometimes the dog just chews out of boredom. A so-called hot spot develops in the skin, which can cause an infection. Clean the hot spot with warm water and mild soap and keep the area dry. If the hot spot does not improve or gets worse, your vet may prescribe medication to relieve the irritation.
Medium Sheepadoodle Allergies
Allergies can cause a variety of symptoms, including hives, itchiness, hair loss, ear or eye irritation, and coughing or sneezing. Usually caused by food or environmental allergies, these symptoms can occur seasonally or all year.
Your veterinarian can help you figure out the culprit with tools such as food trials and allergy testing. Depending on the allergy trigger, your vet may prescribe medication or recommend certain foods for your sheepadoodle pup. Unfortunately, there is not yet a test for us to breed allergies out of your sheepadoodle.
Digestive Issues with Medium Sheepadoodles
If your pup has an upset tummy, the first step is to check if they may have ingested anything dangerous. Curious puppies can get into household chemicals or poisons, or swallow small toys and other solid objects. If you suspect any of these causes, contact your veterinarian immediately.
If you can rule out the above causes, your puppy’s vomiting or diarrhea may be caused by stress or the wrong diet. A bland diet of boiled chicken and white rice may help settle an upset tummy. For diarrhea, you can add canned pumpkin or nonfat plain yogurt to their food. If the symptoms don’t improve after a day or two, or if you see blood in the stool or vomit, contact your veterinarian right away.
