We have some upcoming breedings in the fall of 2023 that we are really excited about! Check out the planned litters below.
“Planned” is the key word in the above sentence. Breeding is not an exact science – Mother Nature is involved. As a result, sometimes the timing of a female’s heat cycle, the success of a breeding, or an expected litter’s coat colors or markings don’t always match exactly what we had planned. We can estimate heat seasons, hope for successful breedings, and predict color percentages and markings of a litter, but Mother Nature makes the final call. We strive to select pairings of adult dogs that will produce wonderful temperaments and color combinations, and we are always thrilled with the puppies, no matter their gender, colors or patterns/markings. In addition, JoaLins may need to use a different stud than originally planned due to a number of contributing factors like the availability of the stud on the exact day we must breed. In the event we change a stud for a future pairing, we will make every effort to select a stud that will likely produce the same colors and sizes expected, however this may not always be possible.
When you pay your reservation fee, you will be placed on JoaLins’ Master Reservation list. After that, our process is very simple. We contact all of the families on our Master Reservation list and let them know that puppies are due about one week before the projected date of birth and after an x-ray is done by our reproductive vet. When the puppies are born, we reach back out to families on our Master Reservation list in the order their reservation fee was paid, the size of puppy they are hoping for, and those families with VIP status.
Our Master Reservation list is fluid and, by its nature, can change. For example, families who are at the top of the list may decide to defer to a later litter for whatever reason such as a health issue, a recent move, a new job, etc. That could result in families moving higher up on the reservation list. In addition, if there is a previous puppy buyer on our list, they receive VIP status. Finally, JoaLins may make a business decision and plan to keep one or two of the puppies from a particular breeding as prospective breeders since we usually only breed our girls 3 or 4 times before we retire them.
It is not uncommon for our reservation list to fill up quickly and for families to wait three months to nine months for the right Australian Labradoodle puppy from JoaLins. It is very common for reputable multi-generational Australian Labradoodle breeders to have such wait lists. Sometimes though we are able to provide the right match of a family to one of our puppies in less than two or three months if several of our families have deferred to a later litter. So please take the time now to fill out and submit an application and place a reservation fee to reserve a spot if you are interested in adding a future JoaLins multi-generational Australian Labradoodle puppy to your family!! Click here for the application. Your reservation fee is always transferable to a different litter at a later date.
Questions? Need more information? Send us an email using the form under “Contact Us” or call during our office hours listed on our “Contact Us” page. Between puppies and family, we can’t always answer the phone, but please leave a message or let us know by email that you’d like to talk, and we’ll get back to you promptly.
UPDATE: Reka had 3 adorable puppies on November 8th!
Our lovely True Blue Caramel Macchiato at JoaLins, called Reka around the house, is expected to go into heat in late summer – early fall. Reka is a small miniature Australian Labradoodle at 18-19 pounds that is full of energy and a real cuddle bug. Reka is a sable chocolate parti – an uncommon color combination. She also has a super soft wavy coat – it feels like soft cashmere when you pet her. She has an outgoing, big personality in a very tiny body. Sweet as can be too. Nole, the planned stud, is also a mini at only 20 pounds. Nole is a chocolate phantom Australian Labradoodle. He is cool, calm, and collected and nothing seems to rattle him. According to our trainer, Nole’s temperament is mellow, confident, and smart and he is as sweet as can be! Nole is living at one of our guardian homes nearby. Reka and Nole has been bred before and produced the sweetest, most adorable puppies that have grown into wonderful adult dogs. That’s why we are repeating this breeding instead of looking for a different stud.
Reka and Nole’s puppies may include caramel, red, apricot and chocolate coat colors with some gorgeous white markings and maybe a phantom as well just like daddy Nole. These puppies are expected to all be precious little minis, averaging between 15 and 28 pounds when full grown!
We are also planning to breed our girl Lucy this fall when she goes into heat. Lucy is a chocolate sable Australian Labradoodle. Her fur is super soft, loose and wavy. Lucy is a very small micro mini; she is only 12 pounds as an adult. Words don’t do justice when describing Lucy’s personality and temperament. Walking around town with Lucy is like walking with a celebrity. People can’t help but stop, stare, and take pictures with our little Lucy. Aside from being adorable, her dynamic personality draws people of all ages. She’s clever, social, and a spunky free-spirit – she lives up to her registered name, JoaLins Spicy Hot Chocolate! We found the perfect stud for Lucy in our own program. Lucy was bred to Theo and we expect puppies from this pairing around the beginning of December. Theo has red wavy fur and you can’t find a more perfect temperament. He is sweet, loving and loves to play with his two human siblings. These puppies from Lucy and Theo should be very small minis – approximately 14 – 18 pounds as adults. We can’t wait to hold these little ones!
Hallie, our Chocolate mini, went into heat about 2 months before we expected her to! We are so excited! This will be Hallie’s first pregnancy. She has honeymooned with Theo, our perfect little stud muffin. Hallie is a slim and trim 22 pounds of sweetness. She is the daughter of our Kesi who is now retired. Kesi had several puppies that went on to become emotional support and therapy dogs and we expect just the same from Hallie’s puppies. Theo, the sire to this litter, is a beautiful shade of dark mahogany red and he weighs about 20 pounds. Hallie and Theo’s puppies are estimated to be between 20 and 30 pounds when full grown. Hallie and Theo should produce a rainbow litter – their puppies can be red, apricot, caramel, black velvet and/or chocolate. I just know these puppies are going to be absolutely gorgeous! There is some availability in this litter so if you are interested, fill out a JoaLins puppy application.
