Puppy Adoption Application

In order to submit this form, you should open it with Adobe Acrobat Reader.
We know many families have two working adults and we don't expect anyone to be a super hero and quit a
day job just to be able to take home a puppy. Every puppy family has different needs, and this information
form helps us identify who needs what information and what homes might make the best fit. If you're a
veteran Golden Retriever owner, we don't want to waste your time regaling things you already know; by the
same token, if this is your first puppy or first Golden Retriever, we want to make sure you leave prepared for
what life with a puppy may bring.

Completing this application is a step in the process to acquiring a puppy from Oklahoma Standard Poodles,
but it does not guarantee I'll get a puppy from this or any future litter. While it's unlikely, the breeder reserves
the right to refuse any placement at any time.

APPROVAL AND DEPOSIT: I will review applications within 2 business days of receipt. Applications are
processed in the order they are received. If your home is a good fit, I'll notify you. We breed infrequently, so we
will only accept deposits when puppies are expected or actually available. During pregnancy, approved homes
will receive a link to make a nominal commitment deposit on a puppy, and links will be sent out in the order
approved applications were received. Please make this deposit within 48 hours of the approval e-mail. If you
make a deposit, you are committing to take a puppy from the litter, regardless of whether your gender/color
preference is available.
YOUR PICK OF PUPPY: Puppies will be assigned in deposit order by the first or second preference of the
depositor as indicated on the application. If neither of your choices are available, you may elect another
puppy from the litter. We ask that you make a choice within 24 hours of notification since there may be other
families waiting for a chance to choose. Should you elect to not take a puppy from the litter, the deposit is
forfeited and the deposit applied to the costs of the deposit applied to finding the puppy another home. It is
not forwarded to an upcoming litter as we do not have regular litters. You should review both the deposit
policies and pick of litter policies on our website for any updates.
GOING HOME: We cannot hold puppies for extended times; it is critical for their social development that the
litter departs within a reasonable timeframe. If you have a big vacation planned or have events that would
conflict with a young puppy, please know puppies cannot be boarded in a kennel until they have received their
full immunizations and their rabies vaccination which cannot be done until 3 months of age.
CONTRACT: We have a contract and will not place a puppy without a signed contract. We believe it's the
professional thing to do to memorialize our obligations to each other on paper so there are no questions
later, and for that reason it's a bit lengthy. If you have questions about specific terms, you need to contact us
prior to picking up your puppy.
SPAY/NEUTER: We require spay/neuter at or before 18 months. If you're a breeder you should probably look
elsewhere. This might seem hypocritical at first glance, but we have a take-back provision in our contract.
Any puppy from our home always has a home here, and will never experience the fear and burden of life at a
shelter. Taking back an unaltered dog into our home poses significant risk to our own dogs due to canine
STDs and the possiblity an unaltered dog could be pregnant. Sadly, many well-intentioned folks don't
remember to spay before the first heat cycle, and suddenly their barely-adolescent dog is pregnant by
multiple studs of unknown heritage. Spay surgery while pregnant is exceedingly risky, and several canine
STDs such as brucellosis can be transferred to humans, which poses an unacceptable risk to our family.
Because we take cradle-to-grave "original home" responsibility for the puppies we created, puppies must be
de-sexed unless you are under a guardian home agreement.
REGISTRATION PAPERS: Our excellent family companions do not come with registration papers to any
registry. You are free to register your dog with the AKC, UKC or CKC under ILP or single registration status
should you desire to enter events and competitions. Please read more on our website here.
