What is the typical wait time?
1-12 months depending on your flexibility and if we have a surplus of puppies born.
Yes, we are taking deposits. Depending on what you are looking for we may have more puppies born than depositors for that litter and availability to take a puppy home within 1-6 weeks. The more specific characteristics you are looking for the longer you may need to wait.
All depositors may request from any litter born. Once the litter is 2 weeks old we establish the pick order, based on the seniority of depositors wanting that litter.
A 4-10 month wait should be expected if you have very specific preferences. We are breeding litters after we receive plenty of deposits for that type of puppy.
Safari Doodles has been blessed with many referrals and repeat puppy buyers and God continues to bless us with healthy puppies, but we have no control over what mothers are able to get pregnant or how many puppies are born in each litter.
Our mother dogs are pets first and we limit the amount of litters each girl has.
How much do Safari Doodles cost?
All puppies, regardless of size, variety, color or sex are $3500.
A deposit of $500 of that is paid up front to be placed on our master deposit wait list. $3000 remaining purchase price is due once your puppy is chosen at 8 weeks of age.
You can place a deposit here. Please also fill out a puppy application when you place a deposit so we know what you are looking for.
How does the Pick Order/Deposit Process Work?
First, we review your Puppy Application and contact you by phone or email.
After deciding that a Safari Doodle puppy is a good choice for your home, you may submit your $500 deposit to go on our master pick list.
Depositors get access to a private page where they see when litters are born by . You tell us when you see a litter you want a puppy from.
You are then placed on a list for the litter of interest in the order of seniority of deposits received. The more litters that are born, the higher a depositors pick order seniority rises on a future litter. You may not have a high enough seniority of deposit to be on the first litter of interest.
Depositors are given 2 weeks to respond after a litter is announced. After the 2 week deadline we establish a pick order for that litter (base d on the seniority of deposits). If you are not happy with your pick number for your litter of interest, you may move off that litter and wait on a future litter of interest.

When can my puppy come home?
Choices of puppies are made a few days before they are 8 weeks of age and puppies go home when they are 8 weeks old.
We typically send puppies home on Thursday & Friday. On pick up day we hand your previously chosen puppy (by video/phone) outside of our McKinney Texas home in the open air. We are taking precautions to help everyone stay safe.
Due to the Pandemic, we are choosing puppies via videos and phone conversations. Depositors are given a phone consultation appointment in order of their pick order for that litter. Choice of puppy are made over the phone after watching the videos. On puppy choosing day we help you make the choice by discussing the professional interpretation of each puppy’s Volhard temperament test results and our opinion of each pup’s temperament after living with them.
If a good choice is not available in that litter we will forward your deposit to a future litter. Deposits are non-refundable but they are transferable to future litters.
