Phoenix came into heat in early October. We had hoped to use Mack, a tricolour stud from BC, but it didn't work out so we decided to use Canadian Doodles Rogue again since they had such gorgeous puppies last time. Phoenix was bred with Rogue on 17 October. An ultrasound will be done on 15 November to confirm pregnancy and get a preliminary puppy count. We expect the pups to arrive around 13-18 December - just in time for Christmas! These pups will be ready to go to their new homes in mid- to late February 2018, as winter is drawing to a close.
This is Phoenix's fourth litter. Both Phoenix and Rogue are around 30lbs, so the pups are likely to mature to 25-35 lbs.
Phoenix's puppies were born in the wee hours of Friday 15 December, with the first arriving on the stroke of midnight! We have:
- male, born at 00:00, 312g, black with white blaze on forehead (Winterberry)
- female, born at 00:11, 265g, chocolate (Cinnamon)
- male, born at 00:22, 282g, chocolate phantom with white blaze on forehead (Orchid)
- male, born at 00:35, 320g, black phantom with white blaze on forehead, neck, right shoulder (Olive)
- female, born at 00:44, 314g, chocolate with white blaze on forehead (Amaryllis)
- male, born at 00:58, 265g, black phantom with white blaze on forehead (Mistletoe)
- female, born at 01: 23, 342g, black with white blaze on forehead, neck, shoulders (Marshmallow)
- male, born at 01: 42, 244g, black phantom (Kiwi)
As of January 16, two of these puppies are still available as pets. Puppies will be ready to go to their new homes in mid-February 2018.
We plan to keep two of the female pups as potential breeders. We are looking for Guardian families for these puppies. Guardians must live between central Ottawa and Arnprior, and be willing to cooperate with us for breeding purposes.
If you are interested in being a Guardian family for one of the breeders, of if you are wanting a pet puppy, please contact us.
