Welcome to Just Doodling! As a small, family-run breeding program, Brian and I, along with our children and extended family, raise each puppy with love and dedication to prepare them for your family. Making this a four generation adventure. We homeschool our children on our little hobby farm, caring for a menagerie of animals, huge garden, and fruit orchard. We work together - loving and nurturing each puppy to insure a happy, healthy, stable dog ready for life in your home. Learn more about Joanie
Sproodles are a cross between an English Springer Spaniel and a Moyen (medium) Poodle. Both the Springer Spaniels and the Moyen Poodle are intelligent, obedient, loving, medium-sized dogs.
My focus is on raising puppies of exceptional health and temperament. Sproodles, also known as springerdoodles, are known for their sweet and playful disposition. Their softly curling, huggable, low-to-no shed coat comes in many color variations.
Fall puppies expected
Just Doodling is excited to announce that we are looking forward to litters late summer with take home dates in September. Once we have a confirmed breeding, we will post updates and send email announcements.
Make sure you have signed up to received emails from us to stay up-to-date!
Due to COVID-19, preference will be given to those able to pick up their puppies.
I will do my best to accommodate those who live farther, or need to travel.
We will try to deliver or meet families when possible.
Please be aware that the online puppy scammers are hard at work attempting to steal your money and sell you a puppy that doesn't even exist.
I will never sell a puppy without talking to you in person or on the phone. I also do not take payment through a click-to-buy option on my web.
What is a Puppy Scam?
Puppy scammers post fake litters online or pretend to be someone they’re not (usually an existing breeder) to take advantage of puppy sales (sans the puppies.) This means that if you aren’t careful, you could find the perfect puppy, send the ‘breeder’ your money, and never receive a puppy or any follow-up communication in return.
While many times these fake listings appear on websites like Craigslist, some scammers find ways to position themselves as reputable breeders by stealing personal information from them.
Luckily, it’s easy to know what to look for to ensure your puppy buying experience is both safe and enjoyable.
What are the Red Flags?
No phone calls. The seller prefers to handle communication by email and not the phone. A reputable breeder will always communicate with you via phone or video chat (if not in person) before selling you a puppy. Fraudulent sellers are oftentimes outside of the U.S. and may be hiding their phone number by only communicating by email.
Copycat or stock photos. Photos of the dog or ad text can be found on multiple websites. Search for the text in the listing to see if the seller copied and pasted it from another site.
Sketchy payment. The seller asks for wiring of money or payment by gift cards. Be aware that if you choose a non-secure method of payment, it is highly unlikely that you will get your money back.
Price is too good to be true. Research the prices for the breed you are considering ahead of time. Well-bred dogs sold at deeply discounted prices are typically frauds.
