Welcome to this week’s Christmas update at Lamgo Farms! I’m so happy you’ve stopped by to see just what is happening with all of our family and fluffy friends. People or pets. . . You decide who is who! Haha!
We are so excited for our families to meet and take home their Christmas puppies starting tomorrow on through Saturday. These babies are beautiful. We’ll have a very short break before our Spring litters begin. Yep, you heard that right. We have a few Spring puppies coming.
Scroll down to our Snowflake and Poppins litters and our new “Lilly” litter to see just what is happening. We also have a surprise litter that should help out our owners that didn’t get puppies in our current Jasmine litter. I’ll fill you in as soon as we have a pregnancy confirmation!
We have a handful of Summer puppy picking spots available- so scroll down to our Lina and Bella litters to see what we have coming up.
Well, Christmas is literally just around the corner and then it’s January 1st! What is the significance of that you ask? Well, besides a brand new year- it’s the day we accept deposits in our FALL/WINTER 2019 litters. So if you are wanting a spot and your name is on a list or you find an “open” spot. . .make sure you email me the picking spot and litter info along with your info such as your name, address and phone number along with any preferences you may have for your puppy. Then pop over to LamgoFarms.com and make your deposit through our pricing/payment page. If for some reason someone has taken your picking spot ahead of you- I’ll email you to let you know. You can either take the next picking spot or I’ll send your deposit right back to you.
For those in our Spring and Summer litters who have already send a deposit and even a few in our Fall/Winter litters. . .I’ll be working on purchase contracts after I return from Christmas break.
Thank you all so much for the Christmas and holiday cards, pictures and well wishes! We love each and every one of you and are so thankful God has brought you into our lives!
Have a Very Merry Christmas!
Sandi, Phil, Andrew, Jacob, Matthew, Melissa, Jessica, Ava, Nathan and Sara Lamgo

Jasmine “Red”/ Beans F2b Petite Goldendoodle Litter. Jasmine is a Beasley/Burton Petite Goldendoodle. These will be mostly wavy and a few curly. All shades of red. This is a first breeding therefore we do not have past puppy pictures for this litter.
Our one little Jasmine baby! His name is Milo and he already has his family. More pictures will be taken next week when the eyes are open and then I’ll start video at 3 weeks old. Going home February 1st at 12:00pm.
Jasmine has been paired with our new little “Beans.” Not to be confused with our retired, Mr. Bean. Beans is a miniature dark red poodle. These will make the puppies an F1b generation. Because Jasmine is a wavy coat- we are using Beans to make sure we have the desired coats and colors. We do expect mostly wavy coats in this breeding. I’m so excited to see these puppies! Both Jasmine aka “Red” and Beans are dark reds.
Poppins and Banks F1 Standard Sheepadoodles
This is a first breeding for this litter so no past puppy pictures. Poppins is a standard AKC registered Black and White Tuxedo Poodle and Banks is an AKC Registered Old English Sheep Dog. Poppins is beyond smart and sweet and Banks is just about the best dog we have ever had. He is super sweet to our toddlers and baby and is gentle and kind. I can’t wait to see their puppies! We of course are keeping one! I’m not sure if we’ll keep a girl or boy. I’ve promised our kids a neutered male one day. Those are the most desirable around here with kiddos and busy schedules.
Poppins is now in season and will begin the breeding process next week or so. Puppies should go home around mid to late April. Colors should be black and white, however, with the first generation, puppies will most likely fade to a gray as they mature. We won’t know how much they will fade until we follow this first litter. Poppins’ black coloring could influence the fading gene.
- reserved for Lamgo Farms
Planned Breedings: Spring 2019
Jasmine/Beans Petite Red
Jasmine has been paired with our new little “Beans.” Not to be confused with our retired, Mr. Bean. Beans is a miniature dark red poodle. Because Jasmine is a wavy coat- we are using Beans to make sure we have the desired coats and colors. We do expect mostly wavy coats in this breeding. I’m so excited to see these puppies! Both Jasmine aka “Red” and Beans are dark reds.
Jasmine had a singleton for her last litter. So we are transferring many from that list onto this new one and any open spots will be reserved for her next breeding. Not to worry- she will still have a late FALL cycle.

Snowflake/Burton F1 Mini’s
Well, Snowflake has surprised us a bit by going into an early cycle! We are in the breeding process! Puppies should go home around mid to late April. I know many of you were expecting summer puppies.

What breedings to you have coming up? Please scroll back Up for current and upcoming litters (scroll down for more future litters) to the “Next Season’s Breeding Schedule” to see what will be bred and what picking spots are open.
How do I know if you have any open picking spots in a particular litter? Scroll until you see your desired litter. Any available picking spots will be listed as “open.”
How do I reserve a picking spot? Email me at email@example.com with “deposit” in the subject line. Note which litter and number on the picking spot you prefer that is listed as open. Include your name, mailing address, phone number and any preferences you may have for your puppy. Then go to our pricing/payment page at LamgoFarms.com to place your deposit of $250. There is a $5 PayPal processing fee that will be added to your total.
Are Deposits refundable? Unfortunately, due to the high demand of our puppies, we no longer refund deposits. If for some reason we do not have enough puppies born to provide for every owner- your deposit can be transferred to your next desired litter. The $250 is a picking spot reservation. This also helps us weed out those who are not serious about taking home one of our puppies.
Do you have any paperwork we need to complete? Since our puppies are Reserved almost a year in advance- we will spend that time getting to know each of you and will be offering the proper education to make sure you are fully prepared to bring home your puppy. When placing a deposit, please include your name, email address, mailing address, phone number and any preferences you may have. Once you place your deposit, I will email you your purchase contract which also serves as your receipt. You will need to sign and email this back to me. You will also receive a suggested supply list as well as our Health Warranty. The Health Warranty is not due back until 30 days after you take your puppy home.
Do you choose the puppy for us or can we choose our own puppy? You will be asked to visit the Farm at your puppy picking appointment and will be given an hour to choose your puppy. The choice is yours. Please understand that we cannot guarantee gender availability. When it comes to our donated therapy/service dogs, we will choose the top two for you and then you can make your choice out of those.
Can we visit Lamgo Farms for allergy testing or just to see the dogs? Every puppy owner that has placed a deposit is invited to the farm between weeks 5 and 6 for a puppy picking appointment. If unable to attend- we can send extra video and pictures or FaceTime the appointment. Unfortunately- we do not allow other visitors due to the health risk for our puppies and dogs as well as for the safety of our family. If you wish to have allergy testing- it’s best to find a doodle owner and see if you can tolerate that particular generation of doodle. We have several pictures, video as well as slide shows showing our grounds, parents and past puppies. You may also visit our Facebook page and join our open forum to communicate with any of our past owners about their experience with Lamgo Farms. We welcome your questions!
Do you do temperament testing? Yes, all puppies are tested at week 5 and the results are emailed prior to your puppy picking appointment.
Do you take weekly pictures of your puppies? Yes, The first week is simply a group photo but individual pictures are taken weekly starting at week 2. Video is taken weekly starting at week 3 and concludes at week 7.
Are your puppies socialized? Yes! We now have 7 children. Ages 22, 18, 16, 14, 10, 2 and 16 months old. We homeschool and are able to hold, socialize using sensory stimulation as well as play with and cuddle your puppy several times a day which prepares them for any home environment.
When do the puppies come home? Puppies are ready to go home on the Saturday between weeks 7 and 8.
Do you have a Health Warranty? Yes, Lamgo Farms has a 1 year warranty over hips and eyes.
Do you Health Test your Breeding dogs? Some are OFA tested but not all. After consulting an Animal Orthopedic doctor- we learned that these tests do not offer the assurance that puppies will not have hip issues. A good line of breeding stock along with cross breeding and proper care of the puppy will protect and prevent hip issues.
Do you allow boarding after the release date of the puppy? Unfortunately, we are unable to keep your puppy past the pick up date. You will be notified within 24 hours after the birth as to your picking appointment time as well as puppy pick up date/time/information. This will allow you at least 7 weeks to make pick up arrangements. Pick up is on a Saturday a 10 am. We do sometimes offer a Friday pick up by appointment. Lamgo Farms is closed on Sundays and cannot do picking appointments or pick up appointments at that time.
Do you fly puppies out of state? At this time, we only fly during the months of November through May. Our summer months are too hot to fly. Flying is an additional $450. We use both Flight Nannies (for dogs that stand no taller than 11 inches) and pet cargo flights.
What is included in the price of the puppy? An awesome Lamgo Farms PUPPY. . . complete puppy packet: Crate, potty training bells, nutritional supplement, toys, treats, scented blanket from littermates, training material, folder with health records, pedigree, etc, emailed photo collage of your puppy as well as a 10 lb bucket of premium puppy food that will last a few months.

Goldendoodles (Standard, Medium and miniature): $1,950

Do you offer discounts: Yes, we offer a $300 discount for our Military owners. Verification of service is required. Once a year we also offer donation dogs for those medically requiring therapy or service dogs. Please email me your circumstance and we will pray and ask God for the answer. We have a medical form that needs to be completed by a doctor to qualify for service needs.
Do you have a Spay/Neuter clause? Yes. All of our puppies are sold with our contract stating all males must be neutered before 5 months old and females must be spayed before 6 months old. We no longer sell for breeding purposes. Puppies not fixed by the requested time frames will void the Health Warranty.
What sets Lamgo Farms apart from other Goldendoodle breeders? First, having 14 years experience in breeding Goldendoodles- we have learned quite a bit about what to breed to create the perfect doodle for every coat type and personality desired as well as our dedication to each litter. Living on a farm and homeschooling allows us to constantly lay hands on the puppies and give them the ultimate care they need and you desire in a breeder. We care greatly for our puppies and owners and strive to give that personal touch to every one and puppy that comes our way. We also trust God to give us the perfect puppy you desire. We pray over every breeding and puppy and are genuinely blessed with the ability to raise these fluffy friends.
Pictures and Video: When we do have puppies. . .Pictures will be uploaded in our photo gallery at photos.lamgofarms.com and on our Facebook page. Video will be located on our Youtube channel at Happenings at lamgo Farms. Weekly pictures will start at week 2 and Video will start to be taken when puppies are three weeks old.
