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 33 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  2nd & 3rd generation pups-all moms are cockapoos or
yorkiepoos . I use a toy or mini poodle for the cockapoo dad. 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 $100 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 2 times, vet checked  and started housetraining.  The tails will be docked
and dew claws removed.   I am a Christian and try to conduct my business as
