Where is Attala County Cockapoos located? We are located in Kosciusko, MS. Center of the state of MS. About 100 miles SE of Memphis, TN and about 70 miles NE of Jackson, MS.
Can I be added to your waitlist? I do not keep a waitlist. I do, however, keep a contact list of those who wish to be notified of litters whelped. I notify those on the contact list when pups are about 7 days old. Those on the contact list are notified of what is available a few days prior to my posting them on my website. Once I send out the notification email, I will take inquiries on a first come/first serve basis.
Can I make a deposit on an upcoming litter? I do not take deposits on unborn pups.
How much are your puppies? Puppy prices vary depending on size, color & gender. Please see our Prices & Shipping page
Can you tell me more about the disposition of a cockapoo? Cockapoos are generally "people pleasers". If they figure out what you desire of them, they strive hard to win your approval & devotion. They are easily trainable b/c of the high intelligence inherited from their poodle ancestors. They are also easy going & loveable, as are their cocker spaniel ancestors. The result is a dog that is the best of both breeds. As evidenced on my Home page, they are very good with children and make wonderful family pets. Because they are so people oriented, they should not be left alone for extended periods of time.
Do you temperament test your puppies? No. I know what all the books say, but in my experience these tests are unreliable and the tests seem more a form of bullying a small animal. One test suggests that you startle the puppies to see how they respond..? Seems a little mean to me.
What is required to hold the pup of my choice? A NONREFUNDABLE deposit of $150 will hold the pup of your choice. The deposit is applied toward the purchase price of your puppy. The only reason for a possible refund is that I or my vet determines that the health of the pup you chose is questionable in someway. Under those circumstances, you are eligible to apply the deposit toward another pup or a full refund.
Is shipping available? Due to increased regulations by airlines that cause extended wait time between connecting airlines and increased USDA regulations on businesses that ship live animals Attala Cockapoos will no longer ship puppies or dogs. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause. Please see our Prices & Shipping page for additional information.
When are puppies available for new homes? Pups are available for new homes when they are 8 weeks old & have received 2 vaccinations. Please do not ask to take possession of your puppy sooner. Pups are not fully immunized even with two vaccinations. I will not allow them to leave prior to receiving two vaccinations.
To what size do your pups mature? Pups generally mature in the 14 - 16 lb. range. However, I have had the occasional pup that is under 10 lbs. and occasionally over 20 lbs. Size generally depends on the parents. I cannot & will not attempt to guarantee a particular size.
Are cockapoos considered non shedding? Yes, like poodles, the cockapoo is considered to be non shedding & as a general rule, hypo allergenic. However, pups, like children, can take on the characteristics of one parent more than another. Occasionally a pup will have a more cocker like appearance with a straighter more cocker like coat. If so, the chances of some light shedding are more likely.
What are 1st generation cockapoos? 1st generation cockapoos are the offspring of a cocker spaniel parent & a poodle parent. 2nd generation cockapoos & further are the result of cockapoo to cockapoo pairings.
Do you breed 1st or 2nd generation cockapoos? I personally believe that you get a more consistent, classic "cockapoo look" from a cocker spaniel to a poodle breeding. (That is a personal opinion & other breeders often disagree.) Hence, I only breed 1st generation cockapoos.
Are dew claws removed & tails docked? If so, why? Yes, dews are removed & tails are docked. Dews are removed to eliminate the danger of the extra toenail becoming hung & tearing. Tails are docked for aesthetic and sanitary reasons. Tails are docked so that the pup will have a 3 - 4 inch tail at maturity. We do not nub the tails off even with the butt. I believe dogs should have something back there to wag!! That tail will tell you so much about how a dog is feeling!
We have chosen a puppy, but won't be able to pick it up when it is ready. Will you hold the pup? Pups should be picked up by the weekend following their availability date as stated on the website. If necessary, I will hold a pup til it is 9 weeks old provided arrangements are made ahead of time & this is preapproved. After that, there is a $15 per day charge for boarding, plus additional charges for any required veterinary care, vaccinations, wormings, etc.
Can we receive updated photos of our puppy? I update photos about every two weeks, More often if time allows. I am hard to please when taking & posting photos. I take a good bit of time taking photos & then there is a good deal of time required to load & edit the photos for a litter of pups. Please be patient. I know you are anxious to keep up with your pup's progress, and will update as often as I can.
What can you tell me about the differences in genders - male vs. female? There are some inherent differences in the males & females. Please see our Male vs. Female page.
Are visits to your home to see the pups allowed? Yes, visits are allowed. Please call ahead to arrange an appointment. Visits are allowed at the convenience of our family.
