Welcome back to another update at Lamgo Farms! We are so excited you’ve found your way to this page to see just what is happening in each of our litters, with our family and to see just what kind of crazy is happening on the Farm this week!
Well, it’s been “busy” on steroids to put it lightly. But we are oh so excited about all of our new puppies and I can’t wait until next week when we start seeing those little eyes open. That’s when you can really SEE the puppy and it’s little soul. For those who were on our Snowflake litter who have moved, please let me know if I’ve missed any double listings for you. After so much back and forth, I may very well have missed a spot. Just let me know and I’ll make sure everyone is in the correct place.
Right now we have 3 litters on the ground and are expecting another one this weekend. This is the easy part. Well, aside from the sleepless nights making sure all puppies are nursing and cared for by momma as well as vet appointments and the typical excitement cloud with a tinge of worry around it’s edges.
You’d think by now that this would all just be old hack for me and a puppy is a puppy is a puppy. But no. . .each tiny little life that enters the world right here in front of me is a complete miracle. Nothing is created by mistake. Maybe the vehicle to get here is off the rails or not the intended method. But those little lives, each and every one is made by our creator and I am just so honored to get to be a part of witnessing them grow. Even if it’s only for eight short weeks. . .it melts my heart for a lifetime.
As you can see, we have quite a few black and white puppies this time around! For those who have been following us for a while, you know I have a love for everything black and white! I am sooo excited about these puppies and can’t wait to see them grow.
It is currently a little past 1 in the morning which means it is officially my daughter, Melissa’s 15th birthday! I’ll be spending my day away from the computer to give her all of the attention and hugs she deserves. Any email, contracts or answers to questions will be postponed until Thursday. Thank you so much for understanding! The kids understand the nature of our business and they gladly give of their time with me constantly, but sometimes they do give a request to spend a little more time with me without the phone or computer. So, today is Melly’s day. Life is but a blink of the eye. . .so with that. . .let’s move on down to see just what is happening in each of your litters this week. . .
2019 Breeding Schedule
Here is what we have now and have planned: scroll down to the FAQ section to see how to place a deposit, pricing and to answer many questions.
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. We estimate these puppies to mature between 55-65 lbs.
Poppins delivered 3 girls and 4 boys on Friday, February 22nd. All puppies are doing great! We have 3 “brindle” and white and 4 black and white. Keep in mind that most Old English Sheep Dogs do turn gray, therefore, the black and whites will most likely turn gray and white. With Poppins being a black and white tuxedo- some black coats could stay black. Time will tell.
- reserved for Lamgo Farms
- N. Campbell- Female preference
English Golden Sheepies
Although this breeding was not originally planned, it seems that God has allowed the most beautiful puppies to enter Lamgo Farms! English Golden Sheepies are a mixture of our AKC Registered English Creme Golden Retriever Dam and our AKC Registered Old English Sheep Dog Sire. This is a first litter, so we do not have past puppy pictures, but a few links to a few Instagram pages for you to see what one of these beauties looks like fully mature.
They are black and white and will have the coat of a Sheepdog with the facial features of a retriever. Old English Sheep dogs shed lightly when brushed well. Brushing limits shedding greatly. The Retriever part will shed a lot. We have learned that brushing this particular mix does help with shedding greatly. But bear in mind, there will be a certain amount of shedding.
Golden Sheepies are know to be incredibly docile, brilliant, obedient, easy to train, laid back with a longevity of approximately 18 years.
Lamgo Farms is keeping the first pick of the litter. For pricing, please scroll to the FAQ section.
There is ONE little Burton F1 mini English Goldendoodle in this litter. He will not be in the picking order but can be reserved separately. His mature size should be around 30 lbs.
Puppies will go home Friday, April 12th.

2 girls, 4 boys born February 19
These puppies are cream, apricot and peanut butter color with mostly curly and some wavy coats. 30-45 lbs. Average is below 40 lbs.
What’s Happening Now:
Brie gave birth to her 2 girls and 4 boys on February 19th. The girls are the pink and purple collars. All are doing wonderfully and are now a week old! Both girls will have wavy coats and one boy (yellow collar) has more wavy than curly. The remaining boys are curly. These will not shed! Right now the puppies are sleeping and nursing and growing.
What Happens Next:
Right now the puppies ears and eyes are closed. Around day 14 we will see the first eyes open and they will be able to hear me for the first time. Once the eyes are open, we will start taking individual pictures of them.

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.

Mini Double Doodles
Expected to breed in August 2019. A Double doodle is the cross between our mini Chocolate Labradoodle and our Red Mini Goldendoodle. The coat is thinner and tends to have a cotton or wire texture. Puppies tend to have more of a Labradoodle coat.

Jasmine aka “Red” / Beans F1bb Petite Goldendoodles
(Fall 2019)- Breeding October-FALL 2019. Most likely Christmas puppies. We will know more on dates after her next cycle is complete.

At this time, I’m closing this list for further deposits until after our Spring breeding is complete.
- Ratzlaff – hold- double listed

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.

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.
