If you’d like more information, feel free to contact us at any time.
Please read this if you are seeking a puppy during our very important time of staying home and staying safe during this COVID-19 Pandemic. It is lengthy, but very important to understand the bigger picture of having a puppy now and the problems that are likely to develop even with the very best of intentions. Our listings of upcoming litters begins at the end of this letter to those inquiring for Quarantine Puppies.
I could have sold 500 puppies the last month during this time with all of the inquiries since everyone has been cancelling their family plans and are home. However, I cannot stress how important it is to NOT add a fuzzy love to your home right now or for several months. A lot of folks are doing that right now, which is impulsive because they are physically home and I am seeing so many problems since vets are not seeing pets for anything routine (which puppy visits are) and are really pushing back on any type of surgery needed because they have to use PPE for surgeries (puppies are accident prone and eat things that sometimes require surgery); trainers are not training because it is not an essential business so they are closed; and a lot of folks are finding it hard to get pet food or ingredients for pet food. So even though you may have extra time right now, you won’t have the support outside of your home to raise your puppy the way that you should. So heed my advice, find a good breeder now that will help you plan for a pup later this year as well as give you the support and tools that you need to get off on the right paw for a happy family and a happy puppy.
I feel it is also responsible to add how vital proper and planned socialization if for a new pup as well. Without the socialization required before 16 weeks of age of the recommended 200 new experiences, you end up with a pup that is rather scared of the world. And with current directives to stay home, it is pretty darned difficult to properly socialize or train a pup, I’m afraid, without a lot of creativity and planning. From what I’m seeing in the doggy/puppy world, we are going to have a lot of anxious and totally untrained pups that aren’t properly vaccinated in a few months when life starts to be “normal” again. I am very worried about those families that just don’t have the proper support for their fuzzy loves.
I know this wasn’t the most positive feeling of “letters”. I just am trying to make sure that everyone understands that there is so much more to bringing a puppy home and right now, it is quite difficult to have that support that everyone needs when they start out with a puppy or a dog or a cat! So sit tight, even though there are breeders selling pups – they can’t get vet care either and a ton are getting desperate looking for pet food. Trust me, this is not the best time. Also, keep in mind that those of us with a waiting list that is for a few months or longer is for a reason – we really do care and raise our pups to exceptional standards to make less work for them and for you! I do hope this information is helpful!
Now if you’re ready to PLAN for your puppy, keep on scrolling!! We have some amazing plans coming up!
We are now taking applications for 2021!
NorthStar’s Chocolate Chipper Off the ‘Ol Block – “Paisley” will be expecting a variety of Stunning Parti, Tuxedos, Phantoms and Tri-colors with this handsome boy Moonlit Acres Friar Tuck – “Tux”!! These puppies will be Miniatures and you will be enslaved by their puppy gazes and silky soft coats to sink your fingers into!! This litter is Mid Summer’s Dream Litter!!
We LOVE the temperaments of these wonderful Pawrents, and their first litter was amazing!! Why not do it again?! So we are! All come from therapy & service lines being wicked smart and amazingly sweet – it isn’t a surprise. Their offspring will give us puppy gazes that will make us all weak at the knees. Paisley is just an AMAZING and loving little girl – happy, smart, floppy lovebug that just loves to be with her family and having fun. Such a little belly rubbed love – she is our newest girl in our program. But her heart is a mile wide and we absolutely ADORE her! She is a very popular girl for sure and is the Daughter of Bailey! Paisley is a wonderful example of an outstanding combination of two stellar therapy/service lines and I expect more of the same in this litter. Like our doods are known for, Paisley is incredibly intuitive with her people – if they are hurting, she makes sure to cuddle and allow them to rub her tummy while she paws the air making you laugh. Let’s chat about the stud in town, Tux, that we have the honor of using from Moonlit Acres Labradoodles in Washington. He is a gentlemen and aced his Canine Good Citizenship Certification and just sheer joy to be around! He loves everyone he meets and has such a steady and loving temperament. Moonlit Acres Labradoodle focuses on structure and temperament and it shows with Tux!! He’s just a warm soul in a beautiful soft, coat. Paisley and Tux both have mesmerizing eyes and they want nothing more than to be with people – they enslave you with those eyes!! This is exactly what we are seeking in our NorthStars and we are so grateful for this pair. Once again, we are expecting highly trainable, sweet, intuitive, wicked smart and silly pups that LOVE the water and playing! If you are looking for a fun, smart, miniature ALD….look no further, you’ve found the perfect litter right here!
This Mid Summer’s Dream Litter of STUNNING Miniature Parti, tri-colors, tuxedo, phantoms and wild agouti with little fun spots and possible white front paws shall arrive this late June and head home sometime in August. The pre-paid Reservation List is currently OPEN – Waiting List is currently open until puppies have arrived!! Keep scrolling if you would like to see other future options.
Below is a collage of these gorgeous parents – and their puppies. They are so stinking CUTE! (Professional photos of Paisley are courtesy of our friend & guardian, Shanna, owner of Shanna Chess Photography and photo of Tux from Moonlit Acres Labradoodles).
Are you ready?! No…are you READY?! Cuz this is Lex’s RETIREMENT litter!! Our drop dead gorgeous girl, NorthStar’s Let Freedom Ring, is a tiny package of awesome and she is going to be meeting up with our super fun and lovable Tango Wool Waltzing with Bears to make the sweetest chunkiest miniature rays of sunshine Evah!! These two love birds are going to make some Dark Red and Caramel Miniature fluff balls of love with some little NorthStar spots to make us squeal over just like they did the last time!! I can’t stand the wait! Literal Love Muffins! This will be our Love Muffin Litter.
Okay, I know that I’m gonna have to beat some of y’all back with a stick over these puppies. These two are LITERALLY perfection and an ideal pairing. Lex is sweetness, joy, smart and up for an adventure all wrapped up in a fluffy, happy red package. I have yet to see a bad picture or hear a story that isn’t awesome about this girl. She is doing this MidWoof proud carrying on our foundation lines and doing it with style. I needed to find a well balanced and cuddly boy that is a total love bug but can have fun playing …. and our very own boy Bailey (that we share with Cherry Lane Labradoodles) will be a part of making that wonderful balance with Lex that these puppies will need to be true NorthStar Labradoodles!! I KNOW these puppies won’t last long heading home after the craziness of summer.
We expect these miniature love bug puppies to arrive at the end of summer – so perfectly fun! Miniature possibilities of Red, Apricot & Caramel solid with tiny spotted pups are what we are so excited to see. Lex’s Pre-Paid Reservation List is OPEN. Waiting List is currently OPEN until puppies have arrived!!

Enjoy these pictures of Lex and Bailey as well as their puppies from their last litter. Seriously, they are even more adorable and sweet on the inside! Thank you to Shanna Chess Photography (Bailey’s Guardian) for the great photos!
Our very own, NorthStar’s Heart of Gold (Rosie) will be expecting a mix of simply adorable miniature Apricot/White, Caramel/White & Red/White Parti puppies with the confidently sweet little guy, Tango Wool Waltzing with Bears!! These Minis are going to be the talk of the town with their sweetness and spots!! This litter will be our Talk of the Town Litter!!
I’m so excited for Rosie’s first litter with Papa Bailey!! One, she is one of the best girls – sweet, cuddly, fun and ALWAYS smiling!! Just like her mother, I am sure she is going to LOVE being a mama. She will love nurturing and playing with them, I have ZERO doubt. We are pairing her with the ever so wonderful, Papa Bailey who has created a line of AMAZING puppies and many are wonderfully confident therapy dogs which is exactly what we are looking for to pair with that sweetness that Rosie carries everywhere with her. She has such an intuitive talent to connect with people especially on her local regular social runs at local wineries and breweries. She does and IS NorthStar’s Heart of Gold, after all! Bailey is a total cuddle bug, lap dog, and most definitely a traffic stopper! He is super loyal and makes amazing eye contact. His little goofy antics will keep you laughing all day and if you didn’t know any better, you would think he was a stuffed bear! Well, I think that sounds pretty perfect, don’t you?! These puppies are going to be a Parti Party waiting to happen! So, I guess that means this will be our Doodle Party Litter!
These puppies are expected at NSL this Fall 2020 in October and we expect to go home in time to enjoy Christmas in December – eeeee, so fun! Our Reservation List is CLOSED! Waiting List is currently full until puppies have arrived!!
Keep scrolling down for more options in the Fall 2020..
Below are some pictures of Mama Rosie & Papa Bailey growing up with related pups that we expect the pups to take after. Seriously, totes adorbs!! Can you even imagine these little guys during the holidays?!
Oooooh, YEAH BABY!!! Looking for a NorthStar Dood that is pure joy and fun with a gaze that will melt you? Well, we have some super smart and cuddly ALD puppies that we are planning for with these two in the Fall of 2021!! Are you dying?! I mean, seriously! These Medium Red and Apricot puppies are going to be the most adorable muppets, from our NorthStar’s Peek into Heaven – “Poppy” and our NorthStar’s Sirius Magic – “Ringo”. Can’t wait to see them create magic one last time – this is Poppy’s RETIREMENT litter! This will be our Harvest Litter!!
Poppy And Ringo! A total match made in Heaven as we proved with their last litter! Poppy was this teeny tiny little puppy (see the little one in the picture below – that’s her!) that had a heart that never knew how small she was. Full of fun, cuddles and personality – absolutely NO ONE could resist this little bit of fluff! And then she went to her Guardian Home and she GREW! Everyone who meets just laughs, she is so smart and so funny. Just a perfect ALD goofball FULL of sunshine and joy. But she has that gaze and that intuition that is uncanny. She UNDERSTANDS you and knows when she is needed to help let go of the stress of the day. She really is that perfect balance and I can’t wait to meet their next puppies! Now Ringo Starr (ummm, how perfect is this name?!) is just a drop dead gorgeous piece of studliness! I’ve said it before but this guy LOVES adventure, cuddles with family and is sooo good at training! Like his Mama, he is incredibly smart and loves to figure out puzzles and follow his nose to find something fun to share. He looks right INTO you with those eyes – it slays me. He really does understand what us Hoomans are talking about! I knew he was a keeper as soon as he opened his eyes and crawled into my lap as a newborn. Totally my buddy and a pillow stealer like his Mama Stella and Sister Mama Millie. Both of these dogs are simply the embodiment of Joy! Just like our other pups in these lines, those seeking family or therapy lines, this is a one stop shop. Fun and cuddly, but so smart for advanced training. Who’s ready for some Spring fun with one of these pups?!
These little bits of autumn will be Medium ALDs with a rainbow of Red to Apricot in color!! They should arrive the first part of October and head to their loving homes late November. So perfect to be ready for Christmas adventures!! This pre-paid Reservation List is currently OPEN! Waiting List is currently OPEN until puppies have arrived!!

Here is a collage of our Poppy and Ringo as adults, pups AND their pups from their last litter as well! Aren’t they perfect?! (Professional Photos of Poppy and Ringo are courtesy of our friend, Shanna, owner of Shanna Chess Photography.)
Who loves a beautiful rainbow of puppies with spots?! I do, I do, Me, Me, Me!! Our sweet and fun loving, NorthStar’s Dreaming Among the Stars will be making this fun and adorable magic once again with our Tango Wool Waltzing with Bears and we are BEYOND excited!! Rizzo and Bailey know how to make these adorably chunky miniature doods in Apricot, Caramel, Chocolate Sable, Chocolate, Solids & Partis to make us all squeal in delight. Wait until you see how sweet they are as they stop you with their need for belly rubs. Since these puppies will arrive in April and heading home in June 2021 just in time for Dad or Grad, they MUST be our Celebration Litter!!
What can I possibly say that I haven’t already gushed over with Rizzo and Bailey?! I absolutely ADORE these two lines – two of my very favorite! I mean, just look at those cuties! Pure joy and sunshine they both are. Rizzo is a sweet, smart cuddle monster. She loves all of the adventures she shares with her young family in Idaho (along with her daughter, since they HAD to have more of this bit of velvet perfection). Why? Simply because she is with them – spoiled and loved as she deserves! When she is with me I CANNOT keep my hands off of her – she LITERALLY is soooo silky, that she feels like the softest velvet you’ve EVER experienced. Why can’t I ever have hair this silky soft?! It just isn’t fair! Bailey Boo – this boy does love the ladies. But don’t let that fool you! He is such a total love bug and is such a wonderful companion to his sweet little girls at home. He gets to help keep kids and babies company at his photo studio, too! He’s pretty special. And together…amazing. They had a wonderful rainbow from Apricot to Chocolate Sable with white spots everywhere in their last litter. More importantly, they will be perfect for a fun home that loves to give belly rubs and snuggles. Yummy, yummy, yummy! I am so excited to be seeing spots again!
These miniature puppies shall arrive in April ’21 and are going home in June ’21! Eeeeee!! Love that so much!! Perfect for being ready for adventures BEFORE summer!! If you are looking for sweet miniature Australian Labradoodles to cuddle and make you giggle, don’t miss out! The Reservation List is OPEN! Waiting List is currently OPEN!!
