Adoption Process

If you are interested in joining the Artista Poodles' family, please review the Health Guarantee/Contract, then complete an Adoption Application and email to artistapoodles@gmail.com. You can print the application and complete it by hand, or click here if you prefer to complete it in Word format on your computer or tablet. If the application is approved, your name will be added to our waiting list. No deposits are accepted until after puppies are born. Temperament testing is performed on the puppies at 7 weeks of age by an experienced dog person unknown to them. We use the results along with the observations we made throughout their time with us to place each puppy into an appropriate home. We do consider color/gender preferences when placing them as well. If the puppy you need/want is not available at the time of selections, your deposit will be refunded. We want our puppies to stay in their new homes forever, so we will not try to place them in homes that aren't meant for them. Artista Poodles typically reserves one or two "spots" on the list for puppies being evaluated for showing.
