We had a little birthday party for Millie yesterday. 😊 She’s been such a great dog! We have told a lot of people about you guys!

Teddy is one today! He’s about 45 lbs. He loves to play especially with our neighbor dog, another Doodle Dog Hill pup.
Willow is seriously the best and sweetest dog ever ❤️ ~ Bridget M.
Ginger turned out to be a big doodle instead of a little doodle but we love her size anyway. Best dog ever!- Ingrams
Raya (Tori) is spunky, cuddly, and most loving puppy out there. She is so well trained now. Loves to shake hands, sit and lay down. She was potty trained so fast and now sleeps with me every night right in my arms. She is my best friend in the whole world. She is tiny at just 17 pounds which is the perfect size for me. Thank you so much for giving me the perfect pup.
Koko is wonderful! He loves people. He’s really friendly. We are doing obedience classes right now and he is really smart, to a fault, he learned how to open our garbage can haha. It has a touch top and he would get on his hind legs and touch it with his nose. He’s eager to please though and has been easy to train. We have a fenced-in backyard and he loves going outside. We love him he is such a sweet little pup – Ashley D.
Merry Christmas from Koko!
Merry Christmas from Maddy (Java)!
Griffey is 9 months old.
Our Beautiful Stella. She has seen me through much and I am so glad to have her.
Merry Christmas from Stella (formerly Pixie) and her family!
Teddy (formerly Romeo) is doing well. He loves to snuggle and the potty training is going well. He loves his blanket too. – Krista S.
Georgia is a great puppy. Sleeping so well and going to the door to potty and no accidents. She is super sweet and we just love her. She seems to enjoy her new home. We can’t believe how big she is getting. She is 8lbs at 3 months of age. She is such a smart little girl.
Quincy just passed his first birthday and he is a delight. He loves people and dogs alike and everyone loves him! He is definitely a snow dog. He won’t walk very far when it’s hot but will play in the snow as long as I let him. I can leave him home without crating him as he doesn’t chew on anything. I did lose a few pairs of shoes to him earlier on so now I just put them all away so he’s not tempted. – Clemma N.
Costa (formerly Poppie) had so much fun on her first Halloween! She loved waiting for all the trick or treaters. Thanks again for such a perfect addition to our family. – Jen and Matt H.
We all had a good laugh at the thought of Zeus being from a mini doodle family.. he’s a really big boy. He is so sweet and gentle and gets along well with Tux, my parents Wheaton terrier. His favorite place is our cottage in Door County. He takes up almost the entire length of the couch when sleeping. He’s a huge cuddler and will burrow his head under your arm until you pet him. – Madeline
I wanted to provide updates on Ole (Sammi) born April 1, 2017. Ole is 9 months old and a big boy at 43 pounds. He has a beautiful wavy coat on his body with curly hair on his head. His personality is stubborn and hyper and he thinks he is in charge! Hopefully, he outgrows this. We are in our second level of training for therapy dog certification (we have a ways to go on manners). Ole has been visiting a nursing home every week and they all know him by name. Ole loves swimming, playing in the snow and ripping paper! I have attached some pictures from puppy to now. I am more than happy to connect with prospective adopters questions or those who may be going through the struggles of puppyhood as we went through them all (biting, potty training issues, pulling on leash). I will keep you posted on the therapy dog progress. Best wishes for the new year. – Deb
Merry Christmas! Thank you for giving me such a wonderful addition to my life! Beau is really smart and such a snuggler. ~ Rudi A.
Merry Christmas! Buster is such a good boy. Thank you for him. He is so well behaved. – Angie B.
Emmy is healthy and happy! She fits right into our family and we love her so! Thank you for such an amazing puppy! – Brad & Kirstin C.
Amber and Elle are very much loved. Thanks for filling the gap in our families lives. – Tamara K.
This is Leo and this was his birthday. We are crazy in love with our dog. – Leah W.
We love our Millie!
Cooper is 26lbs and Absolutely Perfect! He loves to talk, snuggle, and play catch with dad. We couldn’t be happier. He is our little love bug. – Jen and Steve B.
Theo (Trenton) at 10 weeks. He’s doing great and charming the pants off of everyone he meets. We are sooo happy with our new buddy! All the best to you and your family – Katie C.
Very happy with our Sully. He is becoming a great puppy. Great breeder and very accommodating with delivering our pooch to our front door! – Jessica M.
We love Barley the Dood! (previously Dawson)
Just wanted to send you an update on Bennett (now named Teddy). He has been a great addition to our family. He loves every person and dog he encounters. He is always chewing and we are still working on potty training. He is just the cutest fluff ball! We just LOVE him and everyone comments.
Thanks again for a great puppy!
Carrie and Josh
Koko is such a cutie! We just love him! – Ashley D.
Eleanor is a Wonderful Dog!! – Tamara K
Here is a picture of Maggie (aka Scarlett) from this past winter. We couldn’t love her more. She is the best dog ever! – Billie T.
Ramona now Greta is doing well. And made a great adjustment when cousin Pearl came to visit.
Last shot of solar eclipse party in our yard. Greta wasn’t looking. Still lots of work on potty training and biting. But then she cuddles with much affection and adds joy. – Carol S.
Lexie went to her vet appointment today and passed with flying colors. She was calm through out. It’s hard to tell who is tiring who out more, the girls or Lexie. She will be a great therapy pet!- Gayle F.
Good Morning! Just wanted to send you a quick update on Costa (formerly Poppie). She is such a joy to have in our home. She is the center of attention everywhere we go. She sleeps through the night since day 2 and has been doing awesome with potty training. She loves boating and even has been fishing with her daddy! – Jen and Matt
I hope you and the family are doing well! We haven’t sent an update on Theo for quite some time, but felt the need to now that he’s 4 months old (today!)!! This is definitely long overdue!
We love that little bugger more than anything – I never realized what unconditional love was before him. He has “graduated” from Puppy Level 1 at Petco (with flying colors) and is two classes into Puppy Level 2. Everyone adores him when we show up and our trainer tells us he is very well behaved. He does get distracted easily, but he’s only four months old, so we continue to work with him on that.
He is incredible with people. We’re still learning the “no jumping up” rule but he has gotten much better with it in the last few weeks. He is easy going and LOVES other dogs, especially larger ones. My future in-laws have a 70 lb standard F1B and they LOVE to play with each other. He loves being in the backyard and running around – our yard is fenced in so it gives him complete freedom to do as he pleases.
Theo weighs 16 pounds and is so large compared to when we brought him home (then we look at Baylor, his 70 lb “uncle” and realize he’s not…haha!). He looks so much larger than how much he weighs – we will be having him in for his first hair cut in the next few weeks. We have crate-trained him since bringing him home and due to that, he loves his kennel (this may be thanks to the Peanut Butter filled Kong he receives each time too..). He has done extremely well with potty-training and not had an accident in the house in weeks. He goes right to the door to go out, or whines, when needed. We tried to use bells but he learned quickly he could abuse that privilege and go outside to play – sneaky little guy!
He was extremely mouthy for the first few months but since he started getting his adult teeth (he has TEN as of today), he has calmed down with nipping and biting. He is obsessed with leaves and loves to play in them as well as eat and bring them into the house for a snack later. His toys and bully stick don’t stand a chance against him when it’s playtime, either. We can’t wait to see what he does in the snow!
He has learned he has a “voice” and barks only when he wants attention. He also hates when we aren’t all home together – he waits at the top of the stairs or in the entry way for Cory to come home from work each day (or for whomever is gone) and we love it! He is loved by everyone he meets, especially both of our parents. They spoil him and let him up on furniture (which is a no in our home) and he loves them equally back.
Multiple friends and strangers have inquired to where we got him so hopefully you are hearing from them! We are so thankful to have found you and your family. I ask Cory regularly what we did prior to having Theo, as we can’t imagine life without him. I already can’t wait to get another 🙂
Thank you for such an adorable and loving dog. As said above, we can’t imagine life without him and I imagine he loves us just as much. I have attached a few pictures (we are “dressing” him up as a Beanie Baby for Halloween, I have included that picture as well).
Lacee, Cory and Theo
Hi Donna, Just wanted to send a quick update on Theo. He is adjusting well after one week with us and is playing and is very happy. We are so appreciative of you and your family. We’ve referred a few friends to you! – Lacee
“Just wanted to send you an update on Ezra. He is 3 months old now and he’s been such a great dog. He loves other dogs and always wants to be around people. He is sleeping through the nights and is pretty much potty trained already. ”
Update 8/26/17: Here are some new pictures of Ezra. He is still so gentle- especially around other people and other dogs. He knows he can be rambunctious around us and we love it. I come home at lunch for a few hours to let him out to play and it’s his favorite part of the day. He is sleeping through the night and is only a mild chewer right now. He brings us so much joy and love. – Nicole and Matt
Hello, we will be celebrating this sweet boy- Max, all week! We love him sooo much! Thank you for bringing him into our lives.
We bought a double doodle from you and just wanted to send you an updated picture. I call her Daisy, and she is now six months and the absolute love of my life. She is everyone’s favorite dog in my building. She runs off leash thru the halls and greets everyone she passes. She is an absolute love bug, and I couldn’t love her more! My mom says all three Tucker, Emma Lou and Daisy are all the perfect pets for us three girls. All three mini doodles are from you!! Thank you for everything you do. I give your info to everyone who asks I hope it brings more business to you!! Follow Daisy on Instagram @doubledoodledaisy!
We love our Ruby Sue! (Matilda). She is such a good dog and has added so much joy to our family. The day we brought her home, our 5 yr old son exclaimed, “this is the best day of my life”! Ruby is 12 weeks old now and weighs 11lbs at her well puppy check up this morning. We couldn’t have asked for a better addition to our family or a better experience with Donna. I have told many people (because everyone who sees Ruby wants to know where we got her) about Doodle Doghill. Thank you Donna and Doodle Dog Hill!! – The Woody Family
Pixie is the cutest thing ever and a match for me! – Lauren
Humphrey and Stella at 6 weeks and now. We love them soooo very much!
The Knight Family
CJ and Milo traveling back to Florida. Such good kids.
– Chuck and Joanne
Hi, from Eddie! He is 12lbs now and doing great! He is the best and I have given a few people your contact info.
– Vanderscheuren Family
Griffy is doing really well. He is potty trained and kennel trained and he loves any toy that squeaks. Like ANY toy! He fetches balls and toys and brings them back to me. He has so much puppy energy. He is now sleeping through the night. He makes us so Happy! He is so funny and he makes the funniest noises when he plays. He also watches movies with me…he will actually watch 5-6 hours at a time with me. Thank you so much for him. He is the best ever. My son and I just love him.
Update 8/26/17: Griffey is 5 months old today! He is the best ever! He is obsessed with his squeaky toy. – Erin
Winston has adjusted to his new home quickly. He sleeps 4 hours a night and has had no accidents in the house. He is definitely in the chewing stage.
– Mary and Job
Charlie is officially a set dog! And he has his own Instagram page! @setdogcharlie lol! Everyone is in love with him.
– Ted and Corey
Hi, I wanted to send some updated pictures of our sweet baby Duncan who’s not so much a baby anymore. He is now one-year old. We made him a peanut butter cake and he donated treats and toys to our humane society. He’s Charlie from KC’s litter born on April 14, 2016.
Duncan has been our whole world. He’s such a great pup. We’ve been attending obedience classes over the last year, and he’s proven himself so very smart. His favorite toys are a deer antler and his JW rubber balls. He could play for hours and hours. We are so lucky to be his humans.
I just wanted to let you know that our little Leo (Mozart) is doing just great. We have just fallen in love with him. I have attached a picture of him for you if you need to put one on your website to show one of the black guys at 9 weeks. He is simply darling.
I have some great pics from vacation, she went swimming for the first time and had so much fun, also fishing and lots of boat rides. She just jumped in the water and started swimming and trying to eat the water splashes. Really cute! She’s really growing and looks like a little muppet or bear, may need a trim soon.
Thank you, Werner
I love our doodle!!!!
Liz and Steve
Just wanted to keep you up to date on our Ginger…. we all adore her! She house trained so quickly and with the help of some dog training videos and persistence (mostly from my husband), she is an amazing and obedient dog. At 4 and a half months old, she obeys all basic commands and then some. I didn’t know a dog so young could be so smart. She lays at the base of my chair as I write to you. A real family friend. All this to say, we LOVE our Doodle Dog Hill Golden Doodle! I have passed your name along several times!
Hope you enjoy her newest photo! She’s gorgeous (and others tell us this, too, so we’re not completely biased :-)!)
I thought you might like to see a picture of Romeo with our other dog, Abbey! They have gotten along wonderfully together since the very first time they met. 🙂 I hope all is well with you and your family!
God bless you,
Simon and Koda are tired from their walk. Simon is doing great! Thanks.
I just wanted to say thank you again for giving me such an amazing dog. He is friendly, loyal, sweet, playful and lovable. The only problem is he is too friendly and wants to say hi and give kisses to everyone that we walk by in the city! He gets along great with my other dog and my whole family loves him. I constantly am told by people that he is the cutest dog that they have ever seen. I wasn’t too sure about getting a dog and was a little nervous about the process of buying a puppy because of the stories I have heard about unethical breeders.
You guys really made the process easy and I could tell right off the bat that you had good intentions. I think its truly amazing that you are using the proceeds of the puppies for charity. The world needs more people like you and your husband. Thanks again for this wonderful gift. He is an amazing dog. My whole family loves him and he has been everywhere with me from my house at home, to my new apartment in Philadelphia, to vacationing at the beach. Thanks again for everything, hope all is well.
We just wanted to share a picture with you. We are so in love with this little girl!! We have changed her name to Hazel and she is so amazing. She seems to be adjusting well and everyone who meets her cannot believe how well mannered and behaved she is. Thank you so much for everything. You were so easy to work with and have helped make our little family complete.
Chris, Amy, and little Hazel
Good morning. We are doing great! Tinkerbelle had a name change, and her name is now Geneva (we got married over in Lake Geneva last summer). She has been a phenomenal puppy. Everyone in our families, our building and our neighborhood love her. Even our cat is warming up to her. Here are a couple recent pictures. Enjoy!
Paul and I have been wanting to update you on “Chewie” formally known as “Max”. Took several days for us to finally come up with a name the family members could agree on. Chewbacca fits. We are all Star Wars fans and he certainly looks somewhat like Chewbacca and even has the loyal trait that Chewbacca is known for. Everywhere he goes, he gets rave reviews on how cute he is.
To say the least, he is a real joy to have around. He is growing, now 16 pounds. Loves to run, play, eat raspberries from our patch, learn new commands, and really enjoys to be petted.
We are so glad that you breed miniature Golden Doodles and that we were fortunate to be able to purchase one from you. We like to give money to worthy causes so this worked out well for us. We both felt God’s hand was in the picture.
Keep up the good work.
Pat and Paul
Here is a picture of Bogey. He was born from your litter on 5/5/2012. He is wonderful and is about 32 pounds.

Hi Donna and Family,
We are sending you and update on Ole (Chase). Ole is about 43 lbs, which as completely fine with us. He is tall and mostly hair, but not over weight. He is truly a happy dog, who smiles a lot. We get comments all the time on how beautiful our dog is. He is a spoiled happy dog that gets presents from Josh and I as well as both grandparents for the holidays and of course birthdays.
Ole did eat something one time during the end of summer that we had to take him to the vet. He ended up being fine, just a 24 hour bug. The vet gave us a prescription of canned dog food that Ole went nuts for. He would bark and get all excited for his food. It isn’t exactly budget friendly, so Josh and I decided to buy canned dog food for occasional celebrations like birthdays and holidays. He loves to open presents too just like any kid.
We do go on long walks on the trails. He really likes the bunnies, squirrels, chipmunks, robins, and ducks. He thinks he can catch him but doesn’t come close. We have also seen deer (which he thinks are big dogs) and every once in awhile we will come across turtles, which he is not sure what to think of them yet.
In the spring time when it would rain, we would come in from a walk and carry him into the sink to spray off his feet. He wasn’t sure what to think of that either, but he does fit into our sink just fine and doesn’t move much once he is sitting in the sink.
He loves other people and loves to play with other dogs. The neighbor kids just love him and they always have to say hi to him. He gets really excited when people yell his name or stop to say hello. Ole likes to go the vet as well because he gets attention from all the nurses.
He does well with walking, but do have him signed up for a training class that starts end of May as he currently gets scared of bikers and runners, so we are hoping this class will help us fix the problem.
In the winter or on the rainy days, we don’t go as long on walks as we do during the warmer seasons or non rainy days. He has gotten use to us putting on the booties in the winter and would basically hop up on our bench so we can put them on. He still hops up on the bench as we get ready to go for a walk which is great!
His favorite thing to do is run laps around the house. Josh and I will also chase him or run laps with him, which he thinks is really fun. It probably isn’t good for training purposes, but it gets him exercise and it gets us some exercise too! He also likes to plop down our laps and be pet. Ole of course likes to give lots of kisses.
We have removed most of Ole’s plush toys as he will come to a time when he is tired and sits and chews it apart. I have sewn quite few toys back together, but now just rotate them in and monitor him on those toys. Josh and I bought rubber toys that he loves to toss in his mouth that doesn’t require us to monitor him on as much. He loves balls and sticks. If a toy gets stuck , he will let us know and would like assistance on getting that toy. He will even try to help get it if we are trying to get from under a coffee table or some other piece of furniture. We just laugh sometimes. His latest thing is he will bounce his ball and then take a bite out of his food. Then he will get to a point where he will just focus on eating his food. He is pretty good about playing with balls and toys while Josh and I are cooking, which is nice. We do give him vegetables sometimes in his dog dish. He likes carrots, zucchini and celery.
He does like his crate and that is where he still sleeps. Eventually we will get him to sleep in our bedroom but we are not there yet. He has three blankets in his crate which he will move around and lay on them. He will bunch up one of them and form a pillow that he will rest his head on. Josh and I will also play a CD that is for dogs that we will put on while we are at work. It is suppose to relax the dog. When he is tired and he is out of the crate he will lay down on the arm rest of the couch and fall asleep.
Ole also does well with traveling. We have hammock for the back seat of the car, which I think likes as he can move around better. We do have separation issues, and doesn’t like to be left behind, so he does get really excited when he gets to go somewhere.
Overall, he has really been a great addition to our family. We just love his personality and couldn’t imagine our life without him.
Hope all is well,
Josh and Molly
Leo is a fantastic and a smart dog. He is now 8 months old and weighs in at 65-70 pounds. He is smart, loyal, and well behaved already. He is so full of energy and very playful which can be tough at times but it is well worth it. You guys have done a great job breeding these dogs. I would not trade him for the world. I Attached are a few pictures of Leo.
Hi, Gus is doing great now at 11 weeks old. He is getting bigger and even fluffier. So cute! Plays hard and sleeps hard and loves his puppy chow. Comes to his name, sits, shakes paw, and loves to be called “good boy.” He is happy in his crate when we go out and happy to sleep under Hope’s bed at night. All and all the perfect pup.
Thanks for everything!
WE Love our new addition Izzy! Thank you! – Leith Family
Hope all is well with you. Rocko is beautifully trained. He is a mouther so we have a coffee can filled with bolts that we shake when he misbehaves. He quickly sits down as he only wants to please me. We love him dearly..thank you, Chrissie Herrle
Here is an updated picture of Rocko!
I just wanted to update you on Oliver. He’s doing great! He has the best personality and is such a good puppy. His fur is more golden like. He’s super long with short legs. I constantly get stopped and asked what kind of dog he is and that he’s so cute. I attached some pictures for you and a video of our walk today! Thanks again for everything!
Thank you for Bella. We lover her and she is such a great addition to our family. She is still learning but has passed her first round of puppy classes. I hope that you and you family had a very Merry Christmas!
Dear Doodle Dog Hill,
Zeke, aka Leo, is doing great and growing FAST! He is the best puppy we ever could have gotten and we are so glad he is a part of our family. Everyone we meet wants to steal him and always comments on his great personality and loving nature. He just graduated his basic manners class and is the PERFECT dog for our family. We could not love him more! We could not be happier! I have passed your name along several times as our family truly supports your cause! We can’t thank you enough!
-Stu and Jackie
I wanted to drop a note to let you know how Remy (Benn) is doing.
Though the first few weeks were challenging with the house training. He has been growing in to an absolute sweetheart. He is the happiest and the most playful puppy in his play time class. He is very friendly with other dogs and more so with people. He is also a local star, people stop us on the sidewalk to take picture with him.
He is also extremely well behaved. He does not chew on anything other than his toys. He patiently waits when we are late to serve his meal. I have never heard him bark at anyone. The most he does is growl in excitement when we have visitors.
We love him to bits and thank you for suggesting him for adoption. He is a great addition to our family. Here are some pictures of him before and after grooming (@ 7months).
– Raghu and Reshma
It will be six months on Christmas day since Koda joined our family.
Koda is a wonderful family pet!! He is very social, has a lot of
energy and is very smart. Our biggest challenge with him has been
separation issues, but thankfully those have improved as he has gotten
older. He loves his daily walks, playing with his doggy friends,
taking rides in the car and getting lots of love, attention and food!
He weighed in at 28 pounds at his last vet visit, but he’s probably
closer to 30 by now (and most likely leveling off).
We just love our little guy and are so happy with him. I hope you and
your family are doing well. We wish you a Merry Christmas and many
blessings in the coming year.
Update of Koda 6-2013
I wanted to send you another update of Koda. He turned one on May 5, and it’s hard to believe it’s been a year since he came home to live with us. Since my last update we thought he was leveling off around 30 pounds. It must have been wishful thinking, because he just seemed to keep growing. He is a big boy! We have not had him to the vet since last October, but he is definitely 40 pounds. He has the cutest face and personality to go with it. He is so good with other dogs, and loves people. With all this love comes a high level of excitement. We are hoping it’s a “puppy” thing and he’ll settle down with time. He is a lot of fun and an amazing family dog 🙂
I hope your family is doing well, both two and four-legged. God Bless.
Hi Donna! I purchased Coal (Stanley) from you last feb! We love him so very much and get compliments on him all the time! His coat is gorgeous, personality fun and loving! My life is never dull thanks to Stanley! He has made us very happy! Stanley is such a fun dog, and you’re right, the ebony color isn’t common! When I’m walking him, I always get stopped and people ask what kind of dog he is! I love that he is “different” from the norm! Totally fits him, and us! 😉 I am sending along a couple of pics! He is the perfect size! Nearing 40lbs (I think)! Still a lot of puppy in him, but doing great, nonetheless! He loves to ring a bell when he needs to go outside! If anyone needs more info on an ebony mini golden doodle, I’d be happy to give you good feedback! ~ Lindsay 😉
Holly is doing really well. We have been playing with her a ton and she is the cutest thing in the world. Please tell everyone how much we adore her and will take really great care of her.
We will give up dates from time to time. Thank you again for a terrific new addition to our family.
This email is long overdue! I’ve been meaning to write to update you on Piper (aka Gibson). He is such a good puppy….almost unbelievable he seems so perfect. From the first day he came home with us and was mobbed by the neighborhood kids at the bus stop, he was just so calm and relaxed. And each visit to the vet, we get comments from strangers as well as the vet staff on how calm and mellow he is!
He went to bed the first night with less than 2 minutes of whining and has slept through the night every night. (Many people had been telling me I would be up numerous times a night for potting and to expect a lot of whining through the night.)
He is so great with the kids and we’ve trained him to ring the bell when it’s time to go potty. He absolutely loves to play in the snow so he has brought joy to the fresh snowfall we have been repeatedly getting this spring!
I took him in to the vet this morning for some boosters and he is now 25 lbs. A big boy! I’m anxious to see how big he will be when done growing! His ears and tail are getting curly. I will forward a picture of him I took tonight. We love him so much and want to thank you and the kids for doing such a great job raising the puppies.
Scotty lives in California and is much loved by his new family there.
Hi Donna –
I just wanted to follow up and let you know how Cali (formerly known as Amber) was doing. I don’t know if my husband ever filled you in but I just wanted to let you know how much we absolutely feel BLESSED with this dog. She is the best dog EVER! We receive so many compliments on her from everyone we know on her demeanor and just her good nature. We could not have asked for a better companion for our 4 children! She is truly a member of the family and was from the day we brought her home. We frequently look at your puppies and would love to get another but no one could match Cali!
Thank you breeding a wonderful pet. I am sure your children have a lot to do with it!
I am attaching some photos of Cali so you can see how she is enjoying her new home in Minnesota!

I wanted to send you a picture of Finn and give you an update. We love him so much and life has calmed down (sometimes) now that he’s almost 6 months old. We just finished Session II of puppy training and will start the Intermediate level in Jan. He learns very quickly but is definitely one of the most rambunctious ones in class! He has a stubborn streak a mile long and even though he knows how to “Come,” he definitely chooses when to do it. We always have treats nearby!
He weighed 20 lbs. at the vet last week. I think he’ll be a lot bigger than we expected, but at this point, it doesn’t matter. Can I ask how much Miss Mable weighs? Many have said the parents can be indicators of how big they’ll end up being. Have you heard from others in this litter? We’re just curious if Finn is the same as his sister and brothers.
Finn has added so much love and laughter to our lives. We’re so grateful we found you!
Just wanted to touch base and let you know Otis and I are getting along famously. The ride home and first night went even better than I expected. Otis is making himself right at home. He has met a number of neighbors (and dogs) and is a big hit…of course! This morning he made his debut at the Twin Cities Marathon…the half-marathon mark is 3 blocks from my house. Also, he has had zero potty accidents in the house so far. We are off on the right foot.
I also wanted to tell you it was great to meet your children yesterday. Beautiful, handsome and delightful! I expect we will keep in touch and further discuss the fostering idea. Until then, give all the kids and critters an extra hug from me.
God bless your work and your day!
Just want to let you know Nina is doing wonderful! We love her so much already! She is being spoiled by the whole family, she is sleeping in her crate at night, and is pretty much potty trained already! Thank you so much for this wonderful addition to our family!
I wanted to give you a quick update on Remy, she is doing great! Adjusting really well to the apartment and Cory and I. I included a couple pictures, basically because we are proud parents we take pictures all the time to show everyone :).
Thanks for providing us with such a beautiful little puppy. I will send you an update in a couple months, and if you’d like something for your website (a testimonial or what-not) we can do that as well.
Pictures of Otis
Much loved by his new family!
Here is a picture of Ole from a couple months ago. He is awesome!- Sara
I just wanted to thank you for Harris‘s blanket you sent in the mail 🙂 He really likes it in his crate at night. He’s definitely made himself right at home. I can’t believe how big he’s getting already! Here’s a pic of him running in my backyard, which is his absolute favorite. Thanks again! He’s perfect!
Just a little update on Phoebe (Jojo) and Addie (Miley). They have both done fantastic and are both showstoppers! Both are crate trained and sleep through the night. Addie is the calm, but loud one and Phoebe is quiet but spunky! They love when we get together and they get to play together.
Both are pretty much potty trained and Phoebe has been bell trained as well! Thank you for such great dogs! My parents and I are both very happy with them!
Nina is doing wonderful, we love her so much 🙂 Her coat is still very soft and wavy. We took her to the groomers last week to have her face trimmed, turned out cute. The picture is after grooming. She has a great temperament, training is going wonderful, she lets the girls carry her around and play house with her 🙂 I think she is about 12 lbs at 11 weeks. Just can’t say enough good about her! I just gave a friend your website, so I hope you hear from her! If any more questions come up let me know, always happy to update you and send pictures!
Connor (Louie) is doing great. He’s doubled his size and he’s all puppy. No shedding that I’ve noticed so far. We’ve been going to puppy school and he’s a smart little cookie! Here’s some pictures for ya. Nice to hear from you – Amy
We couldn’t be happier with Lucy. She weighs 11.2 lbs when she went for shots.She had gained three pounds in three weeks. She does not shed. I trimmed hair around her face. She looks like a baby bear ha. Everybody comments on her. She starts obedience school a week from today. She has bouts in afternoon with hyper a.d.d. ha bites everything. Potting training is coming along great. I read your web page often to check on you the children and the puppies and doggies. I don’t have email on my phone but if you go to my facebook I I have pictures of Lucy. Praying for you and yours.
Thanks for all you do for others.
Teddy is adorable.
It was love at first sight for us all! The girls played with Jordy (they are keeping the “Packer” tradition) for the past two hours. He finally snuggled up and fell asleep. Thanks so much for our new addition – we couldn’t be happier!
I hope everything is going well! I just wanted to give you an update on Penelope (Dolly). She is doing so great! She is the cutest puppy ever. She is doing very well with training too- she already knows sit and shake (we are working on come- that one has been a little tougher J ) She is in puppy preschool once a week and she loves it- she plays so well with other dogs. She is truly such a great dog- we love her!
Thanks again- it was a great process adopting with you.

Hi Donna and family,
I just thought I would give you an update on Ole (Chase). He is doing well. Josh and I took him to Puppy class, which he passed, and is now in Beginners class with some of his friends from Puppy class. He is a smart and quick learner and loves going to Pet Smart. We get lots of compliments on his cuteness and his coat color. Ole/Chase is just the perfect fit for Josh and I. He does keep us on our toes, but he is just a sweet puppy. He is good with my neice and nephew who just love him. We have him Crate trained and that is where he sleeps at night for now. He also has booties, which he doesn’t like getting them on, but once he walks on them he forgets about them. You were right about Chase, he is a champ at baths and he still is!
Thanks for a such a fun, healthy puppy! We will keep you updated as he continues to grow.

I sent you some pics of Rocky… Everyone that sees him loves him…. He is a very attractive puppy and is really outgoing to people and the neighborhood where I walk him loves him… Some of the gals around here told me they wish they had him… We went to the doggy store yesterday and he was the “hit parade.” Everybody wanted to know about him and where I got him… All commented on his outgoing behavior and how attractive Rocky looks. He is one happy little fella. He should be happy because he gets a lot of love and has a good home…
… I have become attached to Rocky and he has bonded to me as well. I can tell that he trusts me and he has that unconditional love… I don’t want to be without him… we are “buds” and he is my companion and keeps me company and has helped fill my day… He’s a special little guy and growing as the bond continues to grows stronger with each passing day…
Enjoy the Holiday Season Donna with your family.
Wishing you and your family a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from Kirby (Gage)! He has been a wonderful addition to our family, we just love him! We thought you would like to see a few pictures of how much he has changed since we brought him home back in September. Thanks again for this adorable fur ball! He will be getting his first hair cut soon! 😉 Have a blessed New Year,
Dan, Amanda and Kirby
This is Genevieve, formally known to you as Faith. Our girl is bringing so much joy to the whole family. She is so smart and is catching on to house training very well. She seems to be bigger every morning. Karen
Hi Donna and family!!
Here is our Milo 3 months old! He is almost house broken! No accidents for the past week! He sometimes even tells us he has to go out!
I have been leash training him..he is sooo funny after a somersault or two he walks really well, especially when CJ comes along. He will also sit on command and mostly comes when called! What a fun little boy he is!
CJ is getting used to having him around. They play a lot and fight over the toys, just like kids!!
Have a great 4th of July!!!
Finn is doing GREAT!! Getting along perfectly with Moose the dog and the 2 katts. Looking back, I see that he was 6.5 lbs in April … now he’s sitting (sometimes) at 29 lbs! Sent a pic of him (attached) we took recently. He was a show-stopper yesterday at Muskie Days in Boulder Jnct. many people were interested in your breeding practices so I hope you don’t mind that I may have shared your information with them. Thank you and say hi to all!

I just wanted to touch base with you to tell you have incredibly happy we are with our little pup we got last fall. We named her Nala. We love her so much and couldn’t ask for a better dog to join our family!
Gus had his vet check again with clear stool. Toilet trained for the last two weeks and he is freaky smart. He weighed 12 lbs. on 6/27 everyone including us love him. Dave
Hi Here is Gus at 5 months–big and fluffy and sweet.
He is the biggest puppy in his puppy class (at 30 pounds) bigger than the huskies and shepherds and standard golden doodle–the trainer laughed when we said he was a mini doodle. But he is also the sweetest and smartest.
Hope adores him.
Thank you again for our sweet big muppet.
I thought you might be interested in an update about Jonah (we named him Sulley)! He is ABSOLUTELY the perfect addition to our home!! He is such a good boy! His potty training is going very well! He is already asking to go out! We took him to the vet on Tuesday, and our vet says he looks great! He now weighs 6.3 lbs and is growing more daily:) Sulley has been such a joy and we LOVE having him!! Thank you so VERY much for taking such good care of him!! I am sending you a current picture of our sweet little “monster”!! ~ K.Hasse
