Adoption Process

Here you can learn how to adopt your very own Posh Doodles puppy! We do not have a waiting list and do not take any deposits or payments before adoption day!

Step 1: Follow

Follow on Instagram @poshdoodlesIf you want to, you can also turn on notifications for my page by clicking the bell at the top right corner. By doing this you can be one of the first to know when litters are born, pregnancies are confirmed, available puppies are posted, and more!

Step 2: Adoption Day

Adoption day here at Posh Doodles is a two day process and takes place on Instagram.



The first day, an Instagram post with the caption "TOMORROW IS ADOPTION DAY" will be posted. This post will have photos of the available puppies and include information like size, weight, and go home date. You must be able to get a puppy by the go home date if you plan to comment for one! This first day is for you to prepare, since keep in mind puppies when posted usually get adopted within a few minutes of posting. Be prepared for the next day and have all of your notifications on!


The following day, an Instagram post with the caption "AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION" will be made. THIS is the post you must comment the word "Adopted" on for your chance to adopt a puppy! The puppies will be picked by families in the order that the earliest comments were received. The first family to comment gets first choice of the litter, second gets second choice, and continues for however many puppies are available.


Step 3: Approval

If you are one of the early families to comment that is in line for a puppy, I will immediately send you an Instagram follow request, which must be accepted so I can see what your home and family are like and make sure it will be a good fit. Your account cannot be blank with no posts! You must be following me on Instagram at @poshdoodles to be qualified for a puppy as well. I will private message you with your place in the picking order for the litter & to learn more about your family and home.

Step 4: Picking a Pup

Next comes the fun part, picking your puppy! I will send you photos of the available puppies and give you some time to ask questions about them. You will have one hour to choose your puppy so I can move onto the next family.


If there is not a puppy available that you want when it comes to your turn, you can pass on the litter. If this does happen, I will move to the next earliest commenter on the list! If you do pass, you do not get any advantages for any future litters.

Step 5: Payment

After you choose your puppy, I will send you the information on how to make the full payment for your puppy. Full payment is due ON the day of adoption! You getting a Posh Doodles puppy takes away the opportunity for other families hoping to get one, and full payment shows me you have SERIOUS INTENT to bring your puppy home. Payments are considered a RETAINER, DO NOT roll over to any other litter, are ONLY valid for the puppy you chose, and are NON-REFUNDABLE. I accept payments via Venmo, PayPal Friends & Family, & Credit/Debt Card. If you have a Venmo limit, I will need the remaining amount via PayPal F&F or CC/DC. CC/DC does have additional fees.

Step 6: Get Prepared

Once I receive your full payment, I will let you know everything to expect for the next couple of weeks until your baby comes home! I'll send you info about the food your puppy is eating, things you will need to get your puppy, health insurance, what comes in their go home bag, and more! You will also get weekly photo updates!

Step 7: Go Home PLans

We will start begin to get your puppy's go home day planned on adoption day as well. You can choose to pick up from us in Salt Lake City, have us meet you at the SLC airport if you fly in yourself, or you can use our puppy nanny service. I will never ship cargo, it is unsafe!! Whichever way you choose, we are very experienced in helping our babies travel to their new homes, and will be happy to work with you in any way that we can.

If you choose to use a nanny, it is not included in your puppy's cost. Nanny delivery costs an additional $600 to $1000+ including the ticket, & depending on availability. Further & smaller airports = more expensive!!


At this time with so many border shutdowns and difficulty bringing puppies across borders, I can only have puppies adopted in the continental United States. I wish I could have my puppies worldwide! You can find more info about going home on the FAQS page.

And finally...

Enjoy life with your new best friend!!


As the page's owner, I can sort by earliest comments to see who's first. Your own comment, friend's comments, and larger accounts comments will appear higher, that's how Instagram's algorithm works. Followers cannot sort them in this way. Recently, most litters have had all of the puppies adopted within 30 seconds of posting. I comment under each family in order of the earliest comments. I also always post a screenshot of the earliest commenters to my stories so everyone can see them. I am fair and do not skip anyone, and go in the exact order of the earliest comments. Also, lowercase, uppercase, a mix, it doesn't matter.. as long as you type "adopted" that is what I will go off of. I won't pass over someone for not having a capital "A" or something like that!!

If you are a past Posh Doodle's family with one of our puppies, just message or text me if you would like another and you will get priority picking for any litters before they are posted on Instagram as available. I love when families have two or more Posh puppies!!

Please know I reserve the right to change the adoption process and/or fees in the future. I reserve the right to refuse a puppy to anyone that I do not see fit to have one of our puppies for any reason and at any time before your puppy goes home. I also reserve the right to allow picks before adoption day if I so choose.
