Join Our Waiting List!
We are Cephas and Ruth Kropf, and along with our beautiful family, live on 11 acres of countryside near Itasca, Texas. We began raising family pets in 2011, first as Northland Kennels from Wisconsin, and now as Southland Puppies in south-central Texas! We fell in love with the popular Golden Retriever breed, not only because of their graceful appearance and high intelligence, but their family centric personalities. However, because of the demand for more hypo-allergenic pets, we've combined the best of both worlds, with "designer breeds" - crossing the equally popular Poodle, a breed known for its non-shedding curly coat, with our beloved dogs to produce our highly sought-after Goldendoodles and Bernedoodles.
Our commitment has always been to raise happy, healthy, family companions; pets that combine good coats, with an ideal temperament, and health. We are a state and USDA licensed facility
Our Golden Retrievers are known for their affection, and loyalty. Bred with our handsome AKC registered Red Poodle, they produce our highly sought-after Goldendoodles!
Our Mini Goldendoodles come in the same sweet and saucy package their standard-sized cousins do, except only half the size!
Our sweet, loyal, Mini Bernedoodles are prized for their beautiful fluffy coats, intelligence and family-friendly personalities.

In order to hold or reserve a puppy, we require a small (non-refundable) deposit which is usually 20-25% of the purchase price. This is normally submitted through PayPal, (or can be reserved by check). All puppies are reserved on a first deposit in basis. Your deposit is applied to the final balance due for your puppy.
If your deposit is submitted via PayPal, a receipt will be emailed to you. Please print it and bring it with you when picking up the puppy. We update the website regularly, but on the occasion that you should happen to place a deposit on a puppy that is already reserved, you will have the option of either a full refund, or another available puppy of your choice.
After you've reserved a puppy, the balance of your puppy purchase price is due by cash or check at the time of pickup. The puppy must be a minimum of eight weeks old and the purchase price paid in full/ verified before your puppy is released to go to it's new home.
While your deposit is non-refundable, if the occasion should arise that your reserved puppy should become unavailable for any reason, you will have the choice to pick another available puppy, use your deposit on a future litter, or have it promptly refunded.
The Owners Responsibility
The owner agrees to take good care of the purchased puppy, housing and feeding it properly, maintaining shots, de-worming and providing the proper physical and emotional care it needs. The owner also assumes all responsibility for any accidents or injuries caused by misbehaviour of the dog, after it is in the owner's possession. The death, injury, or loss of the dog, due to theft, carelessness, recklessness, abuse, neglect, heat stroke, or accident will not entitle the owner to any compensation from the breeder.
The Breeder guarantees that upon purchase, the puppy is in good health, and has been immunized and wormed according to its accompanying health record. We do encourage you have your vet examine puppy after you've received it.
We offer a 1 Year Genetic Health Guarantee
We work hard to ensure the genetic health of our puppies, and in the case your puppy is found to have a genetic disorder, (hip or elbow dysplasia, pathological spinal disorder, Luxating patella, continuing open spine, etc, as diagnosed by licenced veterinarian) within one year of purchase, we will exchange your puppy for one of equal value.
Keep in mind, this does not cover common sicknesses, or accidents incurred after the puppy is in your possession. All regular health care maintenance and immunizations are the owner's responsibility. Further, this guarantee is only valid for the purpose of being a companion animal, and does not cover for any other purpose such as breeding, showing,etc.
