Q. Are all Doodles Non-Shed and Hypoallergenic?

A. NO! There are no guarantees to whether a puppy, especially early generation hybrids, will be non-shed or hypoallergenic. Because of the genes from the "Poodle" most Doodles will be "low-shed" and people who are allergic to dogs will be able to "cope" easier with these breeds than with the full blooded "Retrievers". Some however will be completely non-shed and hypoallergenic, and Melorich's oldest bloodlines have proven to be 100% hypoallergenic, but you will not be able to make a final judgment until the puppy is approx. one year old.

Q. Can you guarantee what kind of "coat" the Doodle will have?

A. No! The final "coat" of the puppy will not be evident until they are approx. 9 - 12 months old. Coats can vary from Straight, Wavy or Curly.

Q. Do you have a health guarantee?

A: Yes. We give you a written TWO year health guarantee on genetic disorders. We take every medical precaution before breeding our dogs to insure against any health problems. However some things are out of our hands so we will back our puppies for five years against any genetic health problems.

Q. Do you ship your puppies?

Yes we will ship our puppies. The cost to ship within the US is  $300. This includes the crate, vet check and airfare. Puppies will not be shipped until they are at least 8 weeks of age.

Q. Will the puppies have any shots or vet checks?

A. All puppies are wormed at 6 weeks of age. They are also treated for Coccidia at 6 and 8 weeks of age if they are going to be shipped. Booster shots are given at 6 & 9 weeks. You will need to follow up with another booster at 12 weeks, rabies and heartworm when recommended by your vet and monthly flea/tick prevention.

Q. What should I feed my new puppy?

A. We start feeding our puppies Chicken and Rice puppy food at 4 weeks of age. We recommend that you continue on a quality puppy food until 5 months of age and then move to an adult food. We find that large breed puppy food contains too much protein and can lead to some large bone growth issues. Costco Chicken and Rice adult formula with vegetables is a good quality reasonably priced food. See our recommended foods and foods for dogs with food allergies. Also, we mix in some commercially available raw dog food as well

Q. What if I can no longer keep my new puppy?

A. Melorich will take back any puppy that came from our dogs at any time and any age. There will be no refund given but your dog will be kept in our care until we can find a suitable family to adopt them. I do not ever want any of our puppies to end up in a shelter or someplace even worse.

Q. Do you have a contract for our safety?

A. Yes, No puppy is sold without a signed contract from both parties. If you can not find a copy on our website request a copy and we will forward one.

Q. How do I reserve a puppy?

A. We require a signed application along with a minimum deposit of $300. This deposit is non-refundable. The balance is due before the puppy is 4 weeks old. Shipping costs are due at least 5 days prior to shipping.

Q. Is there a waiting list?

A. There is a waiting list from time to time. There is a $300 non-refundable deposit required to be put on the waiting list. You can always "pass" and wait for the next litter. If you do not take a puppy within one year your deposit will no longer be applied to the purchase of one of our puppies. This deposit is refundable if we can not provide you a pup from the first litter you requested

Q. Is there a notification list?

A. Yes. This list is free.
