I don’t know what’s happened with the people leaving the really horrible reviews, but we had a fantastic experience with this breeder.
Lucky was born in October 2019 and came home to us in December 2019. At the time of this review, we’ve had her for 2 weeks. She is beautiful, intelligent and healthy. She’s been checked out by the vet and looks great, is taking really well to potty training and learning what’s expected of her very quickly. She is confident and playful. She was clearly socialized to some new situations while still with her mother/litter as you would expect a new puppy to be.
Joella was a pleasure to work with. I have no complaints about anything and would gladly purchase another puppy from her if we were in the market for another one.

Shock at some of the comments. I bought Rusty from her 10/24/2019 liter and initial clean bill of health. A beautiful F1B GD. Healthy, always been, normal growth…currently at 62 lbs, interacts beautifully with my 10 YO Double Doodle, and keeps her active (which is exactly what I wanted). I’d buy again from her but I think AZ Doodles has played hardball and knocked them off the internet.

We visit Chedders frequently and have loved it every time. Everything taste wonderful and well worth it.

I do not recommend this breeder. She is flaky and will not answer any “important” questions about the puppies. She is unaware of what puppies have already been sold and what she has left, upon arriving to pick up the only puppy I was sent a picture of, turns out that one was gone and there was only one left.

After dealing with diarrhea, I took the puppy to the vet and she had 3 different parasites. Joelle (the breeder) acted surprised by this information and agreed to pay for the vet bills for it. I sent her the receipts the same day she offered to pay for it and heard nothing in return, I had to text her for 2 weeks before she responded. I sent her a paypal request for the amount shown in the receipts ($278), Joelle denied the request and instead sent me $76.

After taking the puppy for a follow up appt, she STILL had giardia, costing even more in vet bills and medications for the pup.

The puppy then had a reaction to the medications, causing us to have to rush her to the animal hospital where she had to stay overnight, costing $1,000.

In just 2 weeks after picking the puppy up, I went from spending $1,450 to pick the puppy up, to spending almost $3,000 for the puppy and then vet bills to get her healthy.

I don’t like leaving bad reviews but I feel I need to warn people before even considering buying a goldendoodle from these people. After forking out $1450 for a puppy that was Supposedly “healthy” I found that was a lie. I took our girl puppy home and noticed she had really bad diarrhea, So that same day I took her to the vet and they wanted a sample of the stool. Two days later the stool came back positive for Giardia. I’ve never owned a dog before so I didn’t even know dogs could get parasites. The vet also told me that our puppy was really underweight and was dehydrated. They said all around she was pretty sick. Now after months of fighting with Giardia we are on our third round to try and get rid of the parasite. As you can imagine we have forked out hundreds and hundreds of dollars for medicine and testing. I reached out to the owner of AZdoodles and she told me that she would refund us for vet bills which she only paid me a piss pour amount. She refused to pay the full bill, I would say she only paid twenty-five percent of it. She says she only pays for medicine, but she doesn’t pay for having to take your dog to the vet or the testing you have to do to even see what’s wrong with the dog. I find that to be totally wrong because I wouldn’t of had to take my poor little girl to the vet if it wasn’t for these people not taking care of the dogs. Nobody should ever buy from these people and they should not be in business!! They really need to refund everyone who has bought a puppy from them. If I need to I will file a complaint with the bbb.

I thought my experience with Joella was unique, but now I see this is her MO. March 2016 I paid $1500 for my puppy and three days later had a $300 vet bill for Giardia and like the rest of these reviews she did nothing. Now I’m seeing current reviews for the same thing! SHE”S STILL BREEDING !? When I went to purchase “Huckleberry” she bragged and boasted, endlessly about how she was a superior breeder and how “all the rest were hacks” The absolute worst part of all is how she puts her greed ahead of these poor babies welfare. I pray for justice.
