Here at Southern Charms Little Luvs, we strive to provide only the best for our adult breeding dogs who serve as loving members of our family. To ensure we are able to give these dogs the best possible home life while being able to expand and produce the best possible puppies, we like to limit the number of dogs we have living in our home. We are now offering a guardian program where qualified families will receive a FREE puppy/dog while we retain the breeding rights.


Guardian families are expected to properly care for their new puppy/dog physically and financially. We will cover all costs associated with breeding and care for/own all litters produced by guardian family dogs. Basically, you will get an adorable dog to add to your family for no cost, and we get to use him/her in our breeding program. Pretty simple! Guardian dogs will remain your forever family pet but will come to us every so often to sire/whelp their litters. 




-You can have the opportunity to own a high quality & health tested dog for little to no upfront cost!


-Guardian families get to come over and play with the adorable puppies that their dog has sired/whelped!


-Free boarding while you are out of town! (Depending on if we currently have a litter at the house or not). 


-We will pay you an agreed amount for each puppy born alive.




Guardian Families Must Have:


-A fenced yard


-Previous experience with owning a dog or have adequate knowledge on caring for a dog 


*Guardian families must be able to*


-Provide a puppy/dog with proper health care, nutrition, and exercise

-Properly train and socialize a puppy/dog

-Keep up with grooming 


*Guardian families must be established and live no more than 2 hours from us with no plans to move.        


Owning a female guardian dog:

We will board your dog for a few days during the breeding process and the duration of whelping a litter. Once old enough, female dogs will spend at least 8 weeks per year or every other year in our care (guardian families are always welcome to visit during this time). Guardians must be able to detect a heat cycle and keep females away from intact male dogs during this time. Females retire at around the age of 4-6, after retirement the female will be spayed and continue to live the remainder of her life with her guardian family. 


Owning a male guardian dog:

Male dogs will spend a few days with us at a time when needed during breeding. Guardians must be able to keep male dogs away from intact female dogs in heat. Males retire at around the age of 5-7, after retirement the male will be neutered and continue to live the remainder of his life with his guardian family.  



Other requirements:


-For Doodles: We ask that you let the puppy’s coat grow out until around 6 months-1 year of age, although you may groom and trim the dog’s coat around the face and base of the tail. Brushing and bathing should be done regularly.


-For Standard Poodles: Hair should be trimmed as needed in a maintainable poodle trim with hair away from eyes.


-We ask that you allow us to make arrangements to pick up the puppy/dog throughout various stages in its life to get photos taken to display on our website/social media channels.


-Guardian dogs are to be kept on a healthy diet at all times and chosen food brands must be approved by us. 


-Guardian families are required to take their puppy/dog to the vet for its annual vaccines and whenever else needed (aside from breeding related visits).



We will be looking for guardian homes for both male and female dogs when they become available!
