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 31  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 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 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.
