In order to plan future breedings, we have implemented a deposit based Wait List system to our program. This allows individuals to secure their position & have a good idea of when they will bring one of our puppies into their homes!
We are excited to begin this journey with you!
The first step to adopting one of our Golden Retriever puppies is to submit a Golden Application (below) . If you have any questions, please message us before you fill out the application.
If you are placing a deposit, that means you have decided to work with our kennel & we are thankful for your confidence in us!
We require an initial deposit of $250 (Wait List Deposit) to secure your position on our Wait List, once your application has been approved.
An additional deposit of $250 (Puppy Deposit) will be requested once puppies are born to reserve your puppy from the available litter.
Both deposits (totaling $500) will apply towards the full purchase price of the puppy, as stated in our Deposit Agreement.
Deposits are non-refundable in all circumstances. These deposits serve as your commitment to work with Lost Forty Kennels in providing a home for a future puppy bred by us, secures your priority position on our Wait List for upcoming litters & reserves your own puppy when the time comes.
When pricing each of our litters, there are various considerations as well as extra costs that sometimes arise & therefore our pricing can vary. Our litters range from $1,800 - $2,500.
Price of your puppy will be included in your Deposit Agreement.
Once puppies are born, we will contact our Wait List to secure reservations for each puppy in the litter with the Puppy Deposit.
The remaining balance of the purchase price is due when you pick up your puppy at 8 weeks old.
Payment Options: Cash, PayPal, Cashier's Check, Personal Check (for deposits only; subject to 10 day hold.)
Pick order is determined by deposits taken and gender preference. First pick is always reserved for breeder, though we rarely utilize this option.
Selections will be made in person on Pickup Day, so that you will have the opportunity to interact with all of the puppies!
Puppies will be ready for their new homes at 8 weeks old.
We prefer that each family come to our home to pick up your pup. We like the opportunity to meet each of you & your family, and this gives you the chance to meet us & our dogs as well.
We’ll schedule a “Pickup Day”, on a Saturday, for puppy parents to pick up their puppy & ask any questions you may have. We’ll have your Puppy Welcome Kit ready to go!
Hold Option: We also offer the option of holding your puppy up to an additional 2 weeks to accommodate scheduled vacations, business trips, serious illness, etc, provided that your puppy has been paid for in full by the Pickup Day.
We do not ship our puppies. Delivery options can be discussed.
For more detailed info, please see our Frequently Asked Questions page.
Message us with any questions & we'll be happy to discuss!
If you have any questions, please message us first. See our Adoption Process above & read through our Breeding Program. If you have never owned a Golden, please read the info on the About the Breed page as well!
We are a sustainable breeder for every puppy that we produce. Sometimes things happen, life changes and you may find yourself unable to care for you puppy/dog. We WILL accept the dog back, without judgement, no matter the age of the dog.
I'll say it again: These puppies are our babies! Like any good parent, we want to keep up with how they are doing as they grow & learn. We ask for updates from you with photos at least twice yearly, but we hope you'll share much more often!
When you take one of our puppies home, you become part of our extended family! We will be available to you to support any way we can, whether your puppy is 10 weeks or 10 years old. You'll have our phone number, our email, and we encourage you to use them!
Males available to reserve!
