We do have some mamas that currently live with a guardian family. These dogs live full time with their families throughout the year. When it is close to their due date for having puppies, they will come to our farm to have and raise their pups. The dogs will stay at the farm until their puppies have been fully weaned and are on their way to their forever families. Ownership of these dogs remains with Iowa Goldendoodle Dandy’s. We cover the costs of annual vet exams, vaccines, and breeding fees. Once they are ready to retire, they become full official members of their guardian family!

If interested in becoming a guardian family contact us below!

Here at Iowa Goldendoodle Dandys, we are always looking for exceptional families to adopt our retiring females. We consider age, previous litters, health and temperament when making the decision to retire one of our dogs. These are great dogs, who are approximately 5 years old, housetrained, and  full of life and love. We believe these girls should be “top dog” not having to share so much attention in their retirement. 
This is a great opportunity for retriever lovers who want to bypass the puppy stage.

We are Happy to announce that we currently do not have any retired dogs looking for their forever families! 

If this is something that you are interested in we would love to talk with you about our guardian program and out dogs that are close to retirement that will be next in looking for their forever homes. 


Noodles has found her forever home with Pastor Steve and Melissa! Both Noodles and her new family are lucky to have each other, we are so happy for them!
