Adoption Process


Expression of Interest- Due to the high demand for our puppies, we have temporarily closed our wait lists to new enquiries. Families who express an interest in purchasing a Burrinjuck Labradoodle will be asked to re-contact in a few months time in order to be invited to join the waitlists.

Paying the Deposit - Families are asked to recontact during a specific month. We require a non-refundable $700 deposit from prospective families in order to be added to the waitlists. Due to the large number of people who are being added to our wait lists each month, we are unable to estimate a waiting period for families who opt to pay a deposit.


Although the deposit is non-refundable, there is scope to transfer your deposit to a later litter as many times as you would like and for any reason. Families can choose to have their name on all three waitlists or select the waitlists that offer their preferred sizes. Burrinjuck Labradoodles have three waitlist categories: 1. Miniature to Small Medium Size; 2. Medium; and 3. Large Medium to Standard Size.

Birth of Puppies - When a suitable litter is born, we notify families on the waitlists. A high position on the waitlist gives a family an advantage of being able to pre-select a puppy in terms of gender; colour and coat type. If you are fortunate to be one of the first people on the wait list and there is more than one puppy of a specific gender and colour, we may be able to work with your family over the ensuing weeks, to select an individual puppy based on personality attributes. In this instance, the person still chooses a gender and colour at birth, however, those families are able to wait a few weeks to see how the puppies develop. After viewing photos and having discussions with myself, families can let me know their preference however the final allocation is decided by myself as the breeder.


[** Burrinjuck Labradoodles reserve the right to retain any puppies for their own breeding program and will always give ourselves first priority].

A confirmation payment of $500 is required at the time of birth to secure a puppy from a specific litter. Families who are higher up the waitlist are contacted prior to families further down the waitlist. The position on the waitlist is determined by the date and time that the initial deposit was made.

Help us get to know you.

We would appreciate a little more information about yourself and your lifestyle at the time of paying the deposit. We would also like to know a little more about your preferences in a puppy. This allows us to put your name down for the most appropriate litters going forward. We can make no guarantee of the gender, colour, coat type or number of the puppies that will become available but use this information to send you notifications of appropriate litters once they are born.

Notification of new litters.

When a suitable litter is born, we notify families IN ORDER OF THE DATE THAT WE HAVE RECEIVED THE DEPOSIT. This gives that family a slight advantage in being able to pre-select a puppy in terms of gender and colour.

Confirmation Payment.

After the puppies are born, we begin notifying the people on the wait-list. Families are required to get back to me asap if they would like to go ahead with the purchase of a puppy. We allocate individual puppies to families in the order that we receive written confirmation of a desire to purchase an individual puppy from a litter. We also require another instalment of $500 as a confirmation payment at this time.
