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 32 years.  I started out breeding AKC cocker
spaniels, then began breeding cockapoos and eventually  yorkiepoos and now
shorkiepoos-shihtzu and yorkiepoo mix.  I like these 3 breeds for the
low-shedding factor, size, and most of all the temperaments.  I breed  2nd & 3rd
generation pups-all parents are cockapoos or yorkiepoos or poodles
themselves or shihtzu and yorkiepoo.  I think they stay closer to the size and
standard I want.  They are smart, hardy, loving family dogs. My main goal is to
place just the right pup in the right home.  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 non-refundable 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,  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, vet cjecked  and
started housetraining.  I do dock the tails for cockapoos and yorkiepoos unless
specifically asked not to by a customer and I remove their dew claws.   I am a
Christian and try to conduct my business as such.
