Welcome to his week’s update at Lamgo Farms! I’m so happy you’ve found your way here to see just what is happening with our farm, family and our furry friends!
It’s so good to be back in the swing of things and change that date above to 2022! I hope this week’s update finds each of you well. I know we’ve had so many families down right now but know we are praying for each of you!
I finally took the time to take down our Christmas decorations tonight. We usually keep them up until my sister’s birthday on the 12th but as usual- I was running behind a bit.
Right now we have a few litters on the ground that we are raising but for the most part- things seem to be slowing down a bit on the puppy front.
This means we can work on our store inventory, fix fencing, work on yards and of course for me right now. . .I am in the process of artificially inseminating our next 4 litters! One is a first time breeding with one of our new Golden Retrievers.
This will be an F1 generations which I know so many of you have asked for. We will wait another 25 days and then we will check for pregnancy via ultrasound.
I know so many of you have reached out and left voice messages for me to return your call. I am so very sorry but I am all filled up for the next few weeks for phone calls. Due to my busy schedule, homeschooling the kids and of course, my voice issues- I schedule 10 minute phone calls via appointment each week.
If you would like to schedule a phone call with me- please text me with your name and number and preferred time frame to call. I will schedule and confirm with you.
If your questions can be answered via text- please send me a message on my phone to 817-366-7995.
My mornings are full with puppies, chores and kiddos. My afternoons are filled with schooling and right now my evenings are filled with inseminations. But I do take about an hour in the afternoon for phone calls. It’s just a season of my life right now.
I know it will slow down eventually but for now, I appreciate your patience and understanding when it comes to communication.
Right now we do have 2 Double Doodles available that will go home January 29. Scroll down to the Ethel section to see more about them.
For the rest of our litters we are back to our typical wait times. I have taken down picking lists at this time. I’ll put them back up next week. Scroll down to see what we are currently breeding. We are taking deposits based on your preference of color, size and coat type. We do have spots open in Rosita’s litter due in February.
Our next available with picking spots will be our litters going home in May 2022. Now for some serious cuteness. . .scroll on down to see just what is happening in each of your litters.
Litters Coming Up:
Ethel and Beans
F1b Petite Double Doodle
Ethel delivered 2 boys and 3 girls on December 4. These puppies will go home January 29.
At the time of this publishing- the black collar boy and turquoise collar girl are both available!!!
What’s Happening Now:
Oh these beautiful babies are now already 6 weeks old and are now fully weaned! Time is just flying by way to fast for me and soon they will be going home. Yes, it gets sad. BUT I do love seeing the smiles on your faces. It makes it worth it!
The puppies will now be introduced to their crates with a buddy! This is an odd number litter so we will have 3 puppies to one crate and 2 to the other for the first several days during nap time. Once they are comfortable with their buddies, we will move them by themselves.
The babies are already use to the crate atmosphere as they already spend a little time in them during clean up in the morning while they wait their turn for playtime with the kids.
What Happens Next:
Week 7- First round of vaccinations will be given this week. The next set will be due at 10 weeks. Your Reading material that was emailed will have the exact date as well as your medical records in your puppy packet.
Week 8- Going home!
Jasmine and Beans
F1bb Pocket/Petite Goldendoodles (AKA Micro Mini size)
Jasmine delivered 3 girls and 4 boys on December 15. All red with some wavy and some curly.
Litter ALL RESERVED!- we are taking names for the wait list just in case we have cancellations.
What’s Happening Now:
Just look at these teddybears! Each one is absolutely stunning! I have fallen in love with each one. Jasmine is a funny one. She liked to take off her babies’ collars. I’m not sure why, but she just doesn’t like them on. So, I’ve learned that I have to remove their collars before returning them back to mama. This is until they are weaned and then they get them permanently.
Of course this means that I must memorize each puppy early on. At first glance, this can be a bit difficult when you have so many that look alike. But it’s amazing how each one already had their individual looks even before their eyes were open. I just love watching these babies grow into their personalities.
Right now the puppies are already just a few days shy of 5 weeks old!
What Happens Next:
Week 5- temperament testing is conducted and results will be emailed to you prior to picking.
Week 6- temperament testing results are emailed. Puppy picking video is posted the Wednesday prior to picking. Picking for this litter is Jan 29. This is a virtual picking.
Week 7- Vaccinations
Week 8- The plan is to release the puppies on February 12th which will make them 8 weeks and 3 days old. If puppies are not close to the 2 lb mark then we would want to keep them until the following Wednesday which is February 16th. I will know more at puppy picking and will make a decision at that time so you can make your travel plans.
F2b Red Mini Goldendoodles
Rosita is expecting puppies due February 12. Keep in mind that much like human pregnancies- puppies can be born a week before or a week after this estimated due date.
I will announce the arrival of the puppies on our Facebook page. So please, if you are on the Facebook platform, please follow our page. Once puppies are born I will email everyone on the list with a Welcome latter. This is usually sent out a week after birth.
All other updates will be made right here.
Rosita’s puppies are usually all shades of red and a few apricot colors. These are a smaller miniature litter which is estimated to mature around 20-30 lbs.
Her litter size is usually 6 to 7 puppies.
Right now we do have a few available picking spots in this litter.

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.
To be placed on our generic list (for instance- red mini’s or cream petites) simply send me an email to info@LamgoFarms.com with your preferences, email address and name and I will put you on our master list. Once we have our line up for that preference- I will place your name on the list. Once breeding begins- we will request your deposit.
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? Please send me an email to Info@LamgoFarms.com outlining your preferences such as size, color, coat type (wavy vs curly), gender, and any special circumstances I need to be made aware of for your situation.
I’ll need your name, email address and phone number. Once you are ready, you can make your deposit payment by choosing the PUPPY DEPOSIT button below. Deposits are non refundable but are moveable from one litter to another.
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? *** COVID-19: All pickings will be conducted virtually at this time. Regular puppy pickings will commence this coming Summer 2022!!! 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? *** COVID-19: All pickings will be conducted virtually at this time. 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 25, 20, 19, 17, 12, 5, 4 and 2 yrs 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. We also send home a 30 day free enrollment with Trupanion Pet Health insurance.
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 $550. 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: First set of shots, Crate, potty training bells, nutritional supplement, toys, treats, scented blanket from littermates, training material, folder with health records, Vet check prior to going home, 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.
What is your pricing?
Please Text Sandi at 817-366-7995 for current Pricing.
Do you offer discounts: Yes, we offer a $150 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. Breeding a Lamgo Farms’ puppy will result in a fine. We are pro-breeding and we support many other breeders, we just do not sell for that purpose especially for those who intend to breed for hobby of for just the experience of having a litter. Puppies not fixed by the requested time frames will void the Health Warranty.
What sets Lamgo Farms apart from other Goldendoodle breeders? First, having 17 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, mom and daddy dogs 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 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.
