Welcome back to another update a Lamgo Farms! Thank you so much for your incredible patience waiting for this post. I’m so excited each of you has found your way here to see just what is happening on our farm, with our family and of course, to find out just what is happening with our furry friends.
I have seen numerous notifications on my phone showing just how many of your are waiting for an email from me or a message on Facebook or even to return a text message.
Thank you again for inquiring about our doodles and I apologize for the delay in getting back to you. I understand there are quite a few Goldendoodle breeders now in the D/FW metroplex and we are both blessed and grateful that you are considering us for your new best friend.
Now that we have our three large litters gone, we can concentrate a little more on emailing, messages and answering your questions.
At this time, we do have a few dogs ready to go home now. We have our Maybelline mini Double doodle- light blue collar girl that is still waiting for her forever home. She has a thinner cotton/wire texture wavy coat and is what I call a peanut butter coloring. She will mature around 25-30 lbs. She is incredibly sweet, loving and would love to be an only pet or join a family that already has pets. She gets along with everyone. Her price has been reduced to $1,950. You can see video of this lovely lady by visiting our Youtube channel “Happenings at Lamgo Farms.” There are multiple videos of her from three to eight weeks old. She has had 2 sets of shots and has been crate training all this time.
We also have a Female Sheepadoodle that was placed as a service dog in a home that no longer has the need. We are interviewing families now for this sweet young Fluff ball. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in either of these sweet girls.
I want to stress that whether you get a puppy from us or from another breeder or even a rescue- we strongly encourage you to invest in proper training. My experties lies in the doodle breed. This is a very smart animal and because of that, you need a trainer that has years of experience with doodles. We have been saddened to see so many that claim to be trainers but in reality do not posses the knowledge of this breed which leads to damage and in my opinion, animal cruelty.
Because of this, we insist that our owners investigate and research trainers. The trainer that I have 100% confidence in is www.HiltonButler.com. They have trained many of our dogs and are experts when it comes to doodles. Check them out before you commit to one of our litters. We want the very best for you and our puppies.
As usual, life on Lamgo Farms is busy and always moving forward. We have a few new breedings you’ll see below and excited to have more options for you this fall and winter.
For everyone that has been praying for my husband, Phil. Thank our from our entire family! Phil’s surgeon and radiologist have confirmed that the mass in Phil’s brain is not malignant. We are not dealing with cancer here. I’m the first to admit that I have been falling apart since they told us they discovered a lesion on his brain stem several weeks ago.
We still have to see another specialist to see just what comes next, but we are severe thankful for all of the prayers, well wishes and the miracle God has given us or should I say the miracles that he gives continually. We just struggle to take notice.
Great things just keep rolling our way. Our youngest, little Sara Brynn turned one year old today! She is the sweetest and of course according to us, the most adorable baby ever. We are forever grateful to her Birth mom for choosing us to be her parents, for carrying her and going through an incredibly tough delivery to bring her into this world. There is no greater sacrifice and no greater gift.
We now have 8 children ranging from 23 years old down to 1 year old. To expand on that thought. . .our three little ones are now 3, 2, and 1. Yes, keep those prayers coming!
Ok, enough about me and my babies. . .let’s scroll on down to see some furry babies and just what is happening in each of their litters. . .

Sanjay and Paddington F1bb Petite
Sanjay delivered 3 girls and 1 boy July 29.
Sanjay’s Photo Gallery
What’s Happening Now:
I am so excited for you all to meet these babies. This is Sanjay’s first litter and we are so overjoyed as to how they turned out. Not only are they adorable, but they have the sweetest personalities. No matter which puppy you choose in this litter, it will be a rare gem for sure.
Right now these babies are eating their gruel and staring on hard kibble. Not everyone has their teeth coming in yet, so they are still on gruel to keep up the nutrition. This is the beginning of the weaning process. Because this litter is the petite size, we will keep them with mama as long as she allows. Once they have those sharp teeth, mama prefers to let them eat hard kibble and leave her alone.
They have received yet another deworming and are continually being socialized by all genders and a good variety of ages.
What Happens Next:
We will have our temperament testing tomorrow and the results will be emailed to you early next week. Directions have been emailed. Please let me know if you did not receive them. Puppy picking instructions will be emailed next. All other emails will be sent after puppy picking.
Invoices will be emailed this weekend so you have them prior to puppy picking. Checks are accepted at picking. For those choosing long distance and would like to pay your balance via check- please message me. Balances can also be paid via credit card, venmo or cash at puppy pick up. Checks, cashiers checks and PayPal that takes time to clear are no longer accepted at puppy pick up. Let me know if you have any questions.
We will be having our picking for this litter at week 6 on September 14th and then pick up at week 8, September 28th at 11am.
- Walls- Saturday, Sept 14 9:30am- prefers the purple girl
- Hayward- Saturday, Sept 14 10am- prefers the blue girl
- Howe- Sept 14 11am- interested in the pink girl if she is the remaining girl
Jasmine/Beans Petite Red
Jasmine delivered 3 girls and 2 boys on Monday, August 5th. Mama and babies are doing great!
Jasmine’s Photo Gallery
What’s Happening Now:
The puppies are now 4 weeks old! Half way there folks! Right now they are learning to walk and find their voice. They are now eating gruel which is our own recipe of premium puppy food, milk replacer, nutritional supplement and warm water all blended to an oatmeal consistency. They love it! They have had their first two deworming. This week is all about socializing with our family and letting mama getting to have a little alone time.
What’s Happening Next:
Next week we will conduct our temperament testing. Temperaments are very similar in our Jasmine litter. But we still want to identify those subtle differences so you can be armed with everything you need to choose your puppy. Directions will be send out during week 5 along with your puppy picking instructions. This will be everything you need to know to choose your puppy. For those choosing long distance- I will text you at your appointment. Choosing long distance is actually fairly easy. We can even FaceTime the appointment. During week 6 the puppies will also receive their first set of shots.
After puppy picking you will receive another email for Reading material which will have information for you to schedule your first Vet appointment. It is a good idea to start to check out Vet offices to make sure they will comply with our spay and neuter requirement. Females must be spayed at 5 months old prior to their first heat. Males must be neutered at 3-4 months prior to hormones setting in a 5 months. Every Vet has their recommendations but will still comply with our requirement. Over 16 years of breeding, our requirements for spaying and neutering has been the best decision for the best temperaments and for service dogs. Allowing the hormones does more damage and leads to marking (for both males and females) and can alter temperaments. Our requirements have never altered bone structure or natural growth.
We will be having our picking for this litter at week 6 on September 14th and then pick up at week 8, September 28th at 12 noon.

Brie and Duke F1bb Mini/Medium
Brie delivered 3 girls and 2 boys on August 14.
Brie’s Photo Gallery
What’s Happening Now:
Right now the puppies’ eyes and ears have just opened but they are still spending most of their time nursing and sleeping. Brie is such a wonderful mother. Because there are only 5 babies (Brie has had up to 11 puppies at once before) they are all incredibly fat. The blue collar boy however is very large. He will be more of a medium size when mature. As many of you know, Brie’s litters are my favorite for therapy and service. They have that sixth sense and are always incredibly docile. They are always very calm and so easy to care for. They have received their first deworming and will be ready to start eating next week.
What Happens Next:
Next week we will have video of the puppies posted on our Youtube Channel, “Happenings at Lamgo Farms.” I always upload video before pictures and before the update. So make sure you subscribe and click on the notification bell so when I post video, you are notified. That way if I am running late with the update, at least you can see current video. Pictures are now posted in our photo gallery. Just click on the “Brie’s Photo Gallery” above. The puppies will also start their first food called gruel. This is our own recipe of premium puppy food, milk replacer, nutritional supplement and warm water all blended together to an oatmeal consistency. They love it!
Next week during week 4, I will email directions to the farm so those of you planning to come for puppy picking can plan your trip. If you are flying or wish to choose long distance, please let me know so we can plan accordingly. For long distance picks, we can do a FaceTime appointment or send extra video.
During week 5 we will have our temperament testing and I will email your puppy picking instructions. Once puppies are chosen, I will forward some reading material, information about vaccinations and when to schedule your first vet visit. I will also send puppy pick up instructions which includes all the contents of your puppy packet and what to bring when you come to take your puppy home.
The F1bb generation is our most hypoallergenic and perfect for those with severe allergies and asthma. Both wavy and curly coats although the majority are curly.
Picking for this litter will be Saturday, September 28. They will be going home, Saturday, October 12th at 11am.
All times are Central Standard.

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? Complete the contact form located at the end of each litter. Then make your deposit payment by choosing the add to cart button. For litters not yet listed please 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 for any reason. 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 8 children. Ages 22, 18, 17, 15, 11, 3, 2 and 8 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 pet cargo 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. We can fly during the off season with Flight Nannies only.
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.
