Welcome to Temple's Homegrown Puppies website.  Have a look at our site to
find out what dogs we breed and why. I am Corliss Temple, owner, operator.   
I've been breeding dogs for 28 years.  I started out breeding AKC cocker
spaniels then began breeding cockapoos and eventually  yorkiepoos.  I like
these 2 breeds for the low-shedding factor, size, and most of all the
temperaments.  I breed at least 2nd & 3rd generation pups-all parents are
cockapoos or yorkiepoos themselves.  I think they stay closer to the size and
standard I want.  Most of my female breeding cockapoos  have been bred here
as well as their moms, grandmas and sometimes greatgrandmas. They are
smart, hardy, loving family dogs. My main goal is to place just the right pup in the
right hom.  In 2014 I plan to start breeding first generation cavapoos.  That is a
King Charles Cavalier with a miniature poodle.  i prefer meeting the prospective
puppy buyers in person. If that isn't possible, talking to the buyer on the phone
can  work.  I ask for a $50 deposit to hold the pup til it's ready to go to it's new
home, usually at 6 or 7 weeks. The balance is due in cash at pickup. My
guarantee is that when  you  take the pup to a vet within 2 weeks for a well pup
check and it's next vaccine and if the vet finds something that will shorten it's
life, I will replace the pup as soon as possible.  I do not ship pups.The pups will
have their lst shot at 5 weeks and be wormed at least 3 times and started
housetraining.  I do dock the tails unless specifically asked not to by a customer
and I remove their due claws.   I am a Christian and try to conduct my business
as such.
