|Meet our Cockapoo Puppies Parents
My Poodles are an average 13-18lbs. My American Cocker females are in the 15-25lb. range and my
males are in the 22-32lb range. My Cockapoo puppies are generally in the 16-25lb range as adults but
vary, depending on who they take after.
|Thank you for viewing our website and considering a Cockapoo if you
have other questions please feel free to call or email us.
Pricing: Cockapoo puppies prices are posted below their photos on the
'for sale' page. Please understand that if you reserve a puppy for a
particular price and, later, a similar puppy is offered at a lesser price,
the price of your puppy does not change. We sometimes, not often,
reduce the prices of particular puppies as they age or change, etc.
If you buy a Cockapoo puppy in Wisconsin there is a 5.5% tax added
onto all prices. We are a business so we claim all income, hence the
reason for the tax. If we ship you a puppy you do not have to pay
Wisconsin sales tax but you are responsible for shipping costs, these we
can discuss with you.
We understand our pricing may be higher than others you’ve seen,
sometimes even lower, but please understand we are NOT a puppymill.
We put a lot of care, time, and money into raising our Cockapoo puppies-
vaccinations, good food, advertising, vet checks, etc. are not cheap!! If
you buy a puppy somewhere for a really low price you are most likely
supporting a puppy mill and will get what you pay for so please do your
Adopting: A $300 Non-Refundable, Non-Transferrable deposit reserves
a specific Cockapoo puppy. Once you put down the deposit this
guarantee’s that you are for sure buying the puppy and that we will not
sell it to anyone else. Because of this the deposit is Non-Refundable and
Non-Transferrable unless we are unable to provide you with said puppy.
The puppy is not considered sold until we have received the deposit.
When you have for sure decided on adopting a particular Cockapoo
puppy there are a few ways to officially reserve your puppy: You can
send a deposit through our “Buy Now” button located on the website, or
you can mail us a deposit. Please discuss adopting a puppy with us first!
If you are going to use the “Buy Now” button please make sure we
know, and agree, that you are going to send the deposit. If you are
sending a deposit through the mail we require that it be fed ex’d, express
mailed, or priority mailed and payments are to be made out to Cute
Cockapoos. This way there is a tracking # on the package and we can
be sure it’s on the way and can track it if it does not arrive. We will only
hold a puppy for two days, this means if you call and say you are
sending out a deposit we need to receive that confirmation # within two
days. We have had people state they were sending a deposit before and
then not follow through, this takes away other possibilities for the puppy
to get a home.
Please understand that we have had more than one person want the
same Cockapoo at the same time. Because of this, if you are sure you
want a particular puppy we strongly suggest that you reserve it with a
deposit. If we are confident that each party interested is a good match
for our puppy we go by a first come, first serve basis, whoever gives the
deposit first gets the dog. We cannot ‘hold’ a puppy while you discuss
things with your family or think about it, that takes away opportunities for
the puppy to get a home. We only place puppies ‘on hold’ while we are
waiting for a deposit to arrive. Please note that we reserve the right to
feel that you are not a proper match for our puppies, it is very important
to us that they go to good homes!!
Payment Options: If we are shipping your Cockapoo puppy we require
full payment at least 10 days before the puppy leaves our home in the
form of a cashier’s check or money order only. Personal checks/Paypal
will not be accepted for final payments. If you are picking up your puppy
we require the full payment the day of pick up in the form of cash, a
money order,or cashier’s check. Personal checks/Paypal will not be
accepted. For a mailed deposit we will accept a personal check,
cashier’s check or money order. When using Paypal for a deposit their
fee is added onto the amount.
If we are keeping your Cockapoo puppy for longer than 8 weeks of
age full payment is required by the time the puppy turns 8 weeks
and buyer will be responsible for the cost of any additional
vaccinations/veterinary care required after the age of 8 weeks. If we do
not receive full payment by 8 weeks you will be sent one reminder to pay
within 24 hours. If we do not receive the payment you will lose your
deposit and your puppy will be posted back for sale on the website.
Please make payments to: Cute Cockapoos. Gift Certificates are
available in any amount!!
Puppy Pick up and Shipping: Puppies can be picked up at 7 weeks
old and shipped at 8 weeks old. When I post a puppy online I also post
the dates that they are available to go home. I prefer you make time in
your schedule to pick up your puppy the date they are ready for home
but I do allow a 3 day grace period for pickups before I charge a
boarding fee. For example if your puppy is ready for home March 10th
you will have until March 13th to pick them up before I charge a boarding
fee. If you are not able or willing to pick up your puppy within that 3 day
grace period I do charge a boarding fee of $20 per each day they are
left here. If you are having your puppy shipped I aim to ship them the
day they turn 8 weeks old unless there are not any flights available. If
you are not willing/able to pick up your puppy the date that they are
ready to be shipped I do charge a boarding fee of $20 per each day that
they are here. Please ask me first if you want to keep your puppy
here longer than the dates they are available!
Health Guarantee/Cockapoo Puppy Contract: We require a signed
copy of our Cockapoo Contract from each adopting family. Please click
the link below to view the contract, read it, make sure you understand
and agree with it, and then send it to us with your deposit. If paying
through paypal you can just mail a copy of the contract afterwards. All of
our Cockapoo Puppies come up to date on their vaccinations, are de-
wormed, vet checked, microchipped, and come with a health guarantee.
Size, color, and coat are not guarantee’d, we certainly tell you what
color, coat type, and size we think the puppy is/has but it’s very hard to
be exact when a puppy is so young and will continue to change as it
grows. Please note that puppies (and people) keep us very busy so
when you adopt a puppy I will send photos 2-3 times before they go
home to you.
More Info and FAQ’s about our Cockapoo Puppies: We often get
asked very similar questions over and over again so I have constructed

|I often get calls from people that are considering getting a
Cockapoo from us but they also mention that they are
shopping around (which is fine) but when I ask where they are
looking I'm often saddened to hear they are looking at places
that are known to be heavy puppy mill areas. It bothers me
that a lot of people still don't know what a puppy mill is and
that they are unknowingly supporting such a nasty business. I
copied this information off the internet hoping to spread the
word and get some information out on what a puppy mill is so
that hopefully we can help steer people away from this
horrible business. A couple things to be aware of when
looking for a puppy is to see how many breeds a person
raises, if they raise multiple breeds and mixes that can be
(isn't always) a sign of a puppy mill or just someone out to
sell anything that they can make. Also be aware of websites
that do not post the birth dates of the puppies they are selling,
this can be so that when a puppy is older and hasn't sold they
can simply tell you it's younger and you have no proof
because their birthday hasn't been posted anywhere. I am not
the editor of the paragraph below but thought it had some
very good information on the puppy mill trade:
Hundreds of thousands of puppies are raised each year in puppy mills.
Mills are distinguished by their cramped, crude, filthy conditions and the constant breeding
of unhealthy and genetically defective dogs solely for profit.
Very often the dogs in puppy mills are covered with matted, filthy hair, their teeth are
rotting and their eyes have ulcers. We have seen many dogs whose jaws have rotted
because of tooth decay.
The dogs are kept in small wire cages for their entire lives. They never are allowed out.
They never touch solid ground or grass.
Many of the dogs are injured in fights that occur in the cramped cages from which there is
Many dogs lose feet and legs when they are caught in the wire floors of the cages and cut
off as the dog struggles to free themselves.
Very often there is no heat or air conditioning in a puppymill. The dogs freeze in the winter
and die of heat stroke in the summer. Puppies "cook" on the wires of the cages in the
Female dogs are usually bred the first time they come into heat and are bred every heat
cycle. They are breed until their poor worn out bodies can't reproduce any longer abnd
then they are killed. Often they are killed by being bashed in the head with a rock or shot.
Sometimes they are sold to laboratories or dumped. This is often by the time they reach
five years old.
Puppy mills and pet stores maximize their profits by not spending money on proper food,
housing or veterinary care.
The food that is fed in puppy mills is often purchased from dog food companies by the
truck load. It is often made of the sweepings from the floor. It is so devoid of nutritional
value that the dogs' teeth rot at early ages.
Dogs in puppymills are debarked often by ramming a steel rod down their throats to
reputure their vocal cords.
Puppies are taken from their mother when they are 5 to 8 weeks old and sold to brokers
who pack them in crates for resale to pet stores all over the country.
The puppies are shipped by truck or plane and often without adequate food, water,
ventilation or shelter.
Many of the puppies do not survive the trip.
Innocent families buy the puppies only to find that the puppy is very ill or has genetic or
emotional problems. Often the puppies die of disease. Many other have medical problems
that cost thousands of dollars. And many have emotional problems because they have not
been properly socialized in the mills. Don't bring this misery into your home.
Many of the 4000 federally licensed breeding kennels have substandard conditions.
Approximately 3,500 petstores in the United States sell puppies. They sell approximately
500,000 thousand puppies a year. It is estimated that the puppy industry in Missouri is
valued at 40 million dollars a year. The puppy industry in one county in Pennsylvania,
Lancaster, is valued at 4 million dollars a year.
There are seven states that are known as puppymill states because they have the majority
of the puppymills in the country. They are: Missouri, Nebraska, Kansas, Iowa, Arkansas,
Oklahoma and Pennsylvania.
There is federal law, the Animal Welfare Act, and many states have laws to regulate
puppymills but the fact is that those laws are rarely enforced.
Our research has shown that 98% of the puppies sold in petstores come from facilities that
we consider to be puppymills. Petstores often tell customers that their puppies come from
local breeders or quality breeders. Don't believe them, ask to see the paperwork and find
out where the puppies really come from. We even heard about a sign in a Massachusetts
petstore that said their puppies were lovingly raised in homes in Missouri. Those puppies
actually came from the notorious Do-Bo-Tri in Missouri - a puppymill that has been cited
numerous times for violations of the Animal Welfare Act.
If the people of the United States refused to buy a puppy in a petstore, the misery of puppy
mills would end. Please tell everyone you know about puppymills and the petstore
There is no excuse for the abuse of mills to continue. Boycott stores that sell puppies.
