***** I work hard to raise each puppy as if it were my own and I have put years of work into making sure I have the best adults to create the most adorable and best tempered dogs. Your puppy will be born in my bedroom/bathroom with me carefully monitoring and helping mom all through the night. (i do not leave them alone because they usually only want to be in my lap getting their belly rubbed and won't let me leave!) They will stay in my room until puppies are 3-4 weeks old then I move mom and babies into the living room where they will be exposed to more noises and get used to being around the family more and learn a sleep schedule. I normally charge the same price regardless of gender. The more desired colors like the CARAMEL/TAN and CINNAMON ones will be on the higher end but all our puppies sell between the $2500-$4000 range. These prices might surprise you but what is it worth to you to be able to buy your MOST LOYAL BEST FRIEND for the next 12-16 years!? :)
Normally I keep each puppy until they are 9 weeks (so i can get their 1st AND 2nd set of shots for you at the vet and work on crate training) but tcup/tiny sized ones I may have to keep longer (10-12 weeks). It just depends on how they're doing and how well their mom has weaned them. (I never take them away from their mom early!) Once you have reserved a puppy with a deposit, I will send weekly updates with their current weight and new pictures so you can see how they are growing and developing.
Michele's Maltipoo Puppies: Range from $2500-$4000 Each (caramels start at $3500 and go up)
*for this price you are not only getting one of the cutest maltipoo puppies that money can buy, you are also getting one on one breeder support before AND after your puppy goes home. I will answer all your questions (if i don't know something i'll call my vet) and be there for you for the life of your pet.
**In order to be notified of puppies when they're available, you can pay a $100, non-refundable Waiting List Fee to be added to my waiting list. IF we ever have puppies available that are not spoken for, then you get lucky and don't have to pay the fee! Otherwise, you will be placed on the list in the order I received your fee AND according to your desired color/gender/size of puppy you prefer. I receive dozens of applications each month but not everyone is willing to wait so by charging a fee this allows me to only work with the families who are the most committed to waiting and working with me to get them the puppy of their dreams. (this fee is not part of purchase price)
****Deposit to reserve a puppy is a minimum of $500. (This is deducted from final price.) When puppies are born I will contact those on my waiting list and begin taking the deposits to hold the puppy of their choice.
*If you're not able to pick up your puppy when it is ready to leave (usually 9 weeks old) then I charge $20 per day to hold it longer. I understand if you're having to get a flight so I will work with you on that.
*IMPORTANT TO KEEP IN MIND: I am a professional, LICENSED breeder. I have worked on this breeding program for YEARS to get it to what it is now and earn the reputation that I have. None of these puppies are accidents and I make sure my adults are healthy before ever breeding them. I owe sales tax for every puppy I sell, and pay business taxes as well. Not to mention the cost of endless supplies and vet care for puppies and all my adults year round. Yes my prices are high, but I also do more work than any other breeder I know to make sure you get a puppy that's already used to a family schedule. Please keep that in mind when deciding if my puppies are worth the price you pay. Almost every past family has responded with "they were worth every penny!" Don't be afraid to ask for references...i have many families who said they'd love to answer questions and help anyone else out. (a few of them have sent in their reference to be added to my website so read those as well on the References Tab)
***Not only will I answer all of your questions BEFORE you purchase your puppy, I'll also be here to answer all your questions AFTER you take your puppy home. That is something you don't get with many other breeders. (if you find one that is as helpful, with the same quality, and also raises them in their home, and crate trains them.... please let me know because I've been looking for over 4 years to find a breeder I could give referrals to but I haven't found one I trust to take care of my families!)
A few other things that determine my prices are quality (my stud, THOR, has some of the most impressive bloodlines you'll find and it took me YEARS to find this line to make the beautiful dogs that we have today. He has MANY AKC CHAMPIONS in his bloodline which helps to produce some of the most beautiful puppies. You may think the champion bloodlines don't matter to you, but if you want your dog to be just as cute of an adult that it was as a puppy then the quality of bloodlines should matter to you. Also huge factors are supplies used, time invested, and the amount of vet bills we've inquired for their care. And the biggest reason my puppies are not cheap is the fact I put more time and work into my puppies than any other breeder I've ever met! TIME is so very valuable!! You won't find many who are willing to get up all through the night starting around 4 weeks old to start the crate training process like I do. (In fact I haven't found a single breeder who does this!) It's a LOT of work and with kids of my own it is very exhausting! I have to have some reimbursement for all the hard work or I'd be insane to keep raising puppies the way I do. :) And something else i've learned that i feel is a huge advantage of buying from me is that I will actually answer ALL of your questions! I haven't figured out why it's so hard for a breeder to answer my questions when I send 3 or 4. They might answer 1 or 2, but even after repeated attempts, they NEVER answer all my questions. Working with breeders that make you wait DAYS for an answer to your question is torture! When I'm excited and want to know about a puppy or dog, I want to know the answer yesterday haha! So I understand when you're trying to decide what breeder to trust and have questions for them you want to hear back soon. You will either get my response immediately or within a few hours...definitely SAME DAY! My personal experience has been that working with some breeders is so stressful because you'll send a list of questions but they'll only answer one, or they won't respond for days....so you panic thinking you're missing out on other puppies while you're left waiting for a response from them. Don't worry, ask my husband, it's like i become your slave during this process....he's seen me get up and let my dinner get cold because I was answering phone calls or responding to texts because I didn't want to make the family wait. I am trying to have some boundaries because I know I need to always have my family time come first, but I do understand how it feels to have to wait when you're anxious so I will respond quickly! Make your breeder EARN your trust and money....I have been so disappointed in my search for breeders, and it's a shame how dishonest some of them are! Many of them charge as much as I do and don't do HALF of the work I do! PLease don't ever put down a deposit on puppies until you have researched a breeder and feel comfortable that they are going to be honest and help you through this entire process. I've recently dealt with a breeder who was helpful, up until she got my deposit....then she wouldn't answer any of my questions and became very rude anytime I had a question. She woulnd't send pictures, she wouldn't send weight updates, and just kept telling me I needed to "stop stressing her out with questions and trust her because she's been breeding for 10 years and knows what she's doing." I gave her a 4-5 day break between questions and she still told me i needed to quit bothering her. I was lucky and got my money back, but for some it's too late and you'd be stuck buying a puppy from a breeder like that! So please ask questions before putting down a deposit with a breeder! I was foolish and trusted her online ad that said she was a small hobby breeder, but after I dug a little deeper I found she was a kennel with at least 5 different breeds of dogs (also raises cats) so she was not the kind of breeder I would have wanted to support. I made the mistake of falling in love with the pictures on the ad and didn't do my research on her like I should have. I've filed complaints on her with the BBB but unless someone researches that first, she will continue getting away with treating people like that so it's sad. And the crazy part is, she's like MANY others that I've dealt with...I wish there were stricter rules put in place for breeders but unless people hold them accountable and stop buying from them, they'll continue to get away with their practices.
Please choose the breeder of your puppy wisely!!!
