Purchase information


At Almost Famous Doodles all of our puppies are raised in our home, are socialized, and given lots of love and attention daily. 

Puppies go to their new homes with a puppy starter kit which includes, their first food, some puppy toys, puppy care instructions, a cozy blanket scented with their litter mates, and a (2) year health guarantee: Which protects against fatal/life altering congenital and genetic disease, which adversely affects the health of the animal, as well as a spay/neuter contract.

Puppies are up to date on their shots and worming’s and are checked by our vet at birth, 7 weeks old.

We encourage puppy visits from our puppy buyers once the puppies are 6 weeks old. Our puppy buyers can visit their puppies in our home, prior to their puppy pick up date.

If you live out of town, for a delivery fee, we can ship the puppy to your location or you can come to us to pick up your new little bundle of joy!  

How to purchase a puppy?

Or send us an email!


Step #2 - Puppy Application & Leave a deposit

  1. Fill out our puppy application (see application tab)
  2. Leave a deposit: Deposits are $500.00 *You are not guaranteed to receive a puppy from us unless we have received a deposit from you*
  3. You may place the deposit one of the following ways: cash, PayPal, or Venmo. If paying by PayPal the 3.5% service fee that is charged by the banking institution, will be added to the purchase price of the puppy.
  4. Deposits are applied towards the purchase price of your puppy.  Deposits are non-refundable.
  5. If you change your mind about the puppy, find a different puppy, find out you cannot have a dog, or for any other reason your circumstances change and you decide you do not want or cannot keep your puppy the deposit will NOT be refunded.   

Step #3 - Select your Puppy!

If you are placing a deposit on an unborn litter, puppy picks are determined, in the order of deposit received.

  1. We will send out photos of the litter once they are born. 
  2. When it’s your turn to select your puppy, if what you’re looking for isn't born or is already spoken for, you are not forced to take a puppy, you may pass your deposit on to our next litter. However, if we have a puppy that is available and offered to you and you deny that puppy, your deposit is NON-REFUNDABLE. 
  3. Puppies are not selected in person until after they are 5 weeks old, as they are too young for visitors before that age. We will send out tons of pictures and descriptions of the fur-babies to help you make your choice. Puppies do not show personality until they are over 6+ weeks old.  

Step #4 - Paying Balance Due

  1.  The balance is due on your puppy when it is 8 weeks old, either before or at the time of delivery/pick up date. We will accept cash only for the balance. All Colors & Sizes: $2,000 (After deposit, remaining balance is $1,500)
  2. Puppies must be at least 8 weeks before they will be ready to go to their new homes. Some require more time with us. We will make the final decision as to when each individual puppy will be sent home once they see the vet for their 7 week check up.
  3. If you for some reason cannot pick up your puppy on the "pick-up" date and need it to stay longer in our home, then a $20/day boarding fee will be applied to the balance due.
