1 Week Update – Our much anticipated red litter from Dakota and Gavin. We are excited to announce their arrival! There are 7 boys and 1 girl. Dakota is settling into her role as mom and is doing a wonderful job. Puppies are all plump and contented. It makes us feel good to see a puppy laying on his back with his tummy sticking out. Right now, the puppies are blind and deaf, but they have their sense of smell and their balance. Socialization starts young here at Sunshine Acres as we prepare these puppies.
3 Week Update: We are pushing three weeks with this bunch! Puppies are starting to get real fun as they become more and more mobile. They are still role poly and scooting on their tummies but that will change by the next update. These puppies are all dark red. We are looking forward to the puppies climbing out of their whelping box which is when we begin socialization of the senses through motion, toys, different locations, and new sounds. Let the fun begin!
5 Week Update: This litter is definitely in the “fun” stage. It is kind of like our own babies. We each have a bias of when our favorite stage. This is it for me. The puppies are eager yet lack some confidence so the interaction is enjoyable as you see them try to be brave with new things, but can tell they are putting on. There is a lot of sniffing and “tasting” happening as they learn. Toys are becoming a favorite! There are little spats here and there as they play. I love to watch how fast they forgive and forget! Dakota is doing great but is beginning to appreciate our little outings where we give her a break. She has been such a good mother to these puppies. Introduction to the crate has started. We currently leave the door open and allow the puppies to go in and out as they please.
Current Availability: Currently accepting open deposits. These Irish Goldendoodle puppies will be current on their puppy vaccinations and have preventative dewormers as well as heartworm prevention when they are going home age (9 weeks old). They are from good, healthy lines and will soon be ready to come snuggle into your heart! They come with a three year health guarantee and a lifetime of support from us here at Sunshine Acres.
