Puppy Application

Thank you for your interest in a Muddy Creek Poodle. We do our best to ensure that our dogs are placed in loving committed homes and this questionnaire will help us to better know you and what you are looking for in a dog. By filling out this application you are helping us to get a feel for what your family’s lifestyles is and what type of characteristics you are looking for in your new puppy.  An active, young family is more likely to be looking for an outgoing, energetic puppy that can keep up with their busy lifestyle while an older, retired couple may be looking for a more laid back, calm puppy.

 We sell our puppies primarily as PETS  without papers.  We sometimes sell to approved homes for breeding and showing WITH papers for an extra $500.  The name you call your puppy can be anything you like.  On puppies sold with FULL AKC registration we do require their registered name to start with Muddy Creek to show they were bred here.  All puppies are evaluated at approximately eight weeks for temperament and show potential. All puppies will have received age appropriate vaccinations and worming prior to leaving for their new forever homes. Puppies may go to their new homes at approximately 8-10 weeks of age. It is your responsibility to have your puppy examined by your veterinarian within 72 hours of taking possession of your puppy.

 Female puppies should not be spayed prior to 6 months to allow for optimal mental and physical development. Show potential and breeding quality puppies will be sold with full registration at an additional price. Please contact me directly to discuss availability, price, deposit, etc. We prefer not to ship our puppies, but that you personally take delivery of your puppy. However, should shipping be necessary, all costs of shipping are born by the buyer. You may “reserve” a puppy from a future litter with a non-refundable deposit applicable to a future purchase price.

We do not cut off our pup’s “thumbs” (dew claws) or dock their tails.  We strive to improve the health and well being of poodles through diet, improved genetic breeding, education, and naturally rearing poodle babies.  We start our babies off with  exceptional quality puppy food from Royal Canin.  Our adults eat either Royal Canin or Rachel Ray foods.
We perform Early Neural Stimulation on all of our newborn pups to improve their health, resiliency and intelligence.  This stimulation also encourages early puppy to human bonding.
We leave natural tails and dewclaws.  In Europe, it’s illegal to dock tails and remove dew claws.  See our page on tails and dew claws to see why cutting them is not the best for poodle health or comfort.

Please feel free to contact me for any information about our poodle kids, purchasing a puppy, or just questions about what it means to have the joy of a poodle in your life! Thank you for your interest in a Muddy Creek Poodle puppy.

My dogs are my babies so help me get to know you a little bit. Please describe your family. Tell me how many people are in the home, how many children you have and their ages. Please tell me about the other pets and their personalities. This helps me determine if one of my puppies would fit well and which one might be a better fit.
If this puppy is purchased for any reason other than a show/breed prospect, do you agree to have it spayed/neutered no earlier than 6 months but by 13 months of age?
It is important I get references before I place one of my dogs in your care. I will require two personal references where one is NOT a relative and your veterinarian\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'s information.

We register our puppies with AKC and the registered name includes the prefix “Muddy Creek” to show that we are the breeder of the puppy.  The call name of the pup can be anything you like! All puppies are evaluated at approximately eight weeks for temperament and show potential. All puppies will have received age appropriate vaccinations and worming prior to leaving for their new forever homes, and will have been health checked by the breeder’s veterinarian. Puppies may go to their new homes at approximately 8-9 weeks of age. It is your responsibility to have your puppy examined by your veterinarian within 72 hours of taking possession of your puppy.

Companion pet puppies are sold without registration papers.  Show potential and breeding quality puppies will be sold with full registration at a higher price.  Female puppies should not be spayed prior to 6 months to allow for optimal mental and physical development.
