Adoption Process

So, you’re ready for a Flying Feather Farm Goldendoodle…here’s what to do.

1). Contact us with any questions by phone, email or our Contact web page.

2). Submit your application. You will then be contacted within 24 hours after we review your puppy application, with further information exchanged. 


After our application approval, we require a $300.00 non-refundable deposit to hold your reservation, which will be applied to purchase price of your puppy.  We accept check,  money order, or PayPal, we do not accept credit cards for the Puppy Application Fee.  Since your application fee is non-refundable, we recommend that you do not send in an application if you are not committed to waiting for a Flying Feather Farm puppy.

3).  Once the puppies are born, you'll receive an email with the details of the litter size, genders, and estimated pick-up date.  To hold your reservation, half of the total price of your puppy, $950 ($1250 minus $300 deposit) is due to move forward with your reservation.  If you do not respond to this email with your payment,  your non-refundable $300 deposit will be transferred to a future litter if needed.  Again, a personal check, money order or PayPal (plus 3%) is accepted for the payment.  Flying Feather Farm will send out our Health Warranty-Purchase Contract  and Spay/Neuter Agreement for your review.  This paperwork will be signed at time of puppy pick-up.

4). At about 6 weeks, you will receive a phone call to review the "Questionnaire" which helps us in selecting the best fit puppy for you and the best home for the puppy.  Puppy selection is based upon Temperament Testing which is done at 49 days old, (please review this process HERE).  Puppy visits can be arranged after 7 weeks in order to finalize the selection process. 

5). Final payment must be received by the puppy's 6th week mark, see below for payment options:
PayPal $1286 ($1250 plus 3% charge for this option)
Money Order $1250.00
Cash $1250.00

6). Pick up your puppy at 8 weeks, families must visit our farm to pick up the puppy, unless prior arrangements have been made. We charge $25 a day, for all puppies not picked up at 8 weeks of age. All of our puppies are introduced to their travel crate as early as 6 weeks of age to prepare for the journey home.


Other Delivery Options:
Delivery charges are not included in the cost of our puppies.  Unfortunately, we are unable to provide replacements for refunds on pups that are harmed or become ill during shipping.

1). Escort your puppy as a “carry on” home safely with you in the airplane cabin. This is much less stressful on the pup than shipping him cargo. Here’s how it works: You fly to Knoxville McGhee Tyson Airport (Knoxville, TN) or Tri-Cities Airport (Blountville, TN), where we will meet you to deliver your puppy. You re-board and fly back home with puppy asleep under your seat in a carry-on puppy bag. Delivery fee to either airport is $200.00, which will include official Health Certificate for travel prepared by our puppy’s veterinarian. You need to provide your own shipping container for on-board transport of the puppy and make your pup a “carry-on” reservation with the airline. Not all airlines allow puppies in the cabin. Consult Flying Feather Farm before booking your flight to assure you meet all shipping requirements, and to determine the best day & time for your flight.

2). Cargo delivery…Because of the stress of travel and the possibility of exposure to disease and weather,  please decide carefully if this is the best option for your puppy's travel arrangements.  Consult Flying Feather Farm if you should choose this option to secure airline and final destination arrangements.
