Puppy Adoption Process Overview Wisteria Goldens LogoWisteria Goldens Puppy Adoption Process – Overview

This page has information about our Puppy Adoption Process, what we do and provide, the steps for families to adopt a puppy, and more.

Every Wisteria Golden English Cream puppy will already be micro-chipped and 30 days of free pet health insurance (must be activated)

Each puppy is provided love, cuddles, and group and individual playtime. Read here for more information on the foundational start each puppy receives here at Wisteria Goldens – Wisteria Goldens’ Developmental Puppy Program.

Wisteria Goldens has a procedure for adopting, picking, and getting your English Golden Retriever Puppy to you. We are often asked what this procedure is or what is the next step after deciding on getting a Wisteria Golden puppy.

Here is more information to share with you – we hope you find it helpful.

Puppy Adoption Getting Started:

  • If you are interested in a puppy, please complete the inquiry form.
  • This helps us know more about you and what you are looking for in a puppy. It also provides all the information needed for the contract, AKC paperwork, and getting your puppy to you.
  • Read our contract so that you know what we are mutually agreeing upon and entering this agreement together.
  • Once you decide to get a Wisteria Golden puppy, we will complete the contract with the pertinent details and email you the contract. This email will include the instructions for returning the signed contract and sending your $500 non-refundable deposit per the contract terms.
  • Once the puppies arrive, you will receive an email series to help you prepare for bringing your puppy home.
  • Payment in full is due after you choose which puppy is yours.

Time to Pick Your Puppy:

We take pictures of the puppies while they are growing up to help you choose the look you like. These pictures are taken when they are newly born and again at 2, 4, 5 & 6 weeks of age. We do not take pictures after six weeks of age, as we are entirely focused on working with puppies and preparing them for their new homes.

We provide detailed information about each puppy’s personality at six weeks. You choose your puppy when they are 6.5 weeks old. We will take pictures at six weeks, a video of the puppies playing together, and each puppy’s description. We send them to you the day before you choose which puppy is yours to give you time to review the information and discuss it as a family. We are always available by phone or email to answer any detailed questions to help match the right puppy for you and your family.

We call the 1st pick families the morning of Pick Your Puppy Day and go in order of picks. You must be available that day or make prior arrangements as to your 1st, 2nd, and 3rd choice, so we can choose for you, if necessary. All families are excited about “Pick Your Puppy Day,” and families with later picks are anxiously awaiting their turn. We try very hard to keep the picking process moving quickly.

While you choose which puppy is yours at 6.5 weeks, remember, that puppies don’t go to their new homes until eight weeks of age.

Additional Information About Our Puppy Adoption Process:

Your English Cream Golden Retriever Puppy has been raised on Life’s Abundance Large Breed Puppy We have been using this brand for almost 15 years. We have tried other foods and have always come back to Life’s Abundance and highly recommend that you do not change your puppy’s food. We have raised many Goldens on this food and can see in their health clearances the difference.

We do not suggest changing foods as your puppy adjusts to their new home. We feel this is so crucial that we provide a complimentary bag of dog food for your puppy to continue with a normal regime during this transition period.

We believe in the nutrition and quality of the food, and we have extended the health guarantee on their hips for an additional two years. (see the contract)

If you choose to switch brands/formulas AFTER they have settled into their new home, only use the food guidelines we recommend to comply with our contract and guarantee.

Feeding your puppy grocery store food and food with corn, wheat, or soy will VOID your health guarantee.
