Gorgeous Gems

In January of 2022 our Gorgeous Gems litter went home.

This was Remi’s and Dalton’s retirement litter, such a bittersweet goodbye. It’s time for Remi and Dalton to retire together and spend lots of time at camp, taking long walks and swimming.

Sounds like a wonderful plan to me!

They were the beginning to Rockwall Doodles and will definitely play a part in training future Rockwall litters. They love puppies and training them so they will still play an active roll.


I do not know If I can adequately describe the journey that Remi and I have been on.

A dream that started when I was 8 years old. A long time coming to fruition.

The learning, heartache, sleepless nights and many moments that led to the amazing changes her puppies have brought to families lives. The hearts that have healed (including my own) because of her.

The Gorgeous Gems litter will most likely be her retirement litter. My heart is sad and heavy yet at the same time extremely grateful and happy for all that she has done for others.

I am forever thankful to Remi! For all she has taught me and let me learn with her which allowed me to follow my dreams.

Saying goodbye to this litter will be bittersweet for sure. I look forward to seeing them grow and watching parts of her spread the love to more families.

Thank you Remi for all you have done!

Happy Retirement Sweet Girl

Today, March 7, 2022, Remi will be spayed. It is a bittersweet day.

Could Remi have had more litters? Absolutely! My choosing to retire Remi and let her have extra camp time and just enjoy life as our family dog is what is right for her.

She was and is a great Momma and will have the opportunity to socialize and train other litters of Rockwall Doodles. I am beyond grateful that Remi gave me grace to learn the process with her. I showered her with love, respect and her favorite foods with round the clock room service lol?

Thank you Remi for allowing me to raise your amazing puppies and share them with the world.

Puppy Picks at Rockwall Doodles

At Rockwall Doodles families choose their pups and leave with them the same day. Picking order is based on the order reservation fees were paid and we utilize a master list for our future puppy families.

After an application is accepted, we discuss paying the $300 reservation fee. Once a non-refundable reservation fee is paid you will be added to the master list.

When we have a confirmed pregnancy we will contact people in order that reservation fees were paid. We will give you the information about the parents, due date and anticipated go home date as well as your position for picking order.

You will have 2 days to decide if you want to be placed on the litter list offered.  If you do not want to be on that litter list you simply will remain on the master list and be contacted when our next pregnancy is confirmed. You move up the master list as people receive their puppies.

How and when will I choose my puppy?

You will not know which pup is yours until 8 weeks! At that time you will choose your puppy based on your position on the Master List.

What if I do not have first pick? Will I still get a good puppy?

At Rockwall Doodles we do puppy evaluations at 7 weeks old. This information helps us understand the environment each puppy will thrive in. We will pass on this information to everyone that has paid a reservation fee.

Each person will be able to analyze the information and use it as part of the information to choose their puppy. Allowing us to match the best pup for your lifestyle.

At your appointed time (at 8 weeks old) you will let us know what pups you are interested in from puppies that are available. We will give you our opinion and help guide you to the best fit for you and your situation.

The person that has toddlers would definitely need a different pup than the person that wants to go hiking every weekend or the person that wants a Therapy dog.

What if the puppy I wanted is already chosen?

We ask all potential Rockwall Doodles parents to keep their hearts open to all colors, coats and gender of the puppy you want to have join your family.

Decide what are your must haves in a puppy and what you are flexible on. We know and understand what environment our puppies will best thrive in.

If you do not want any of the pups that are available than we can move you to a future litter.

What if we chose a pup that you do not think is a good fit for us?

We will explain why we feel it’s not a good fit and also what we feel can be done to make it work to get the best life for our pup in your home.

Our belief is that there is no ‘best’ pup in the litter, rather the best pup for each family, their needs and their situation.

When I asked my family and close friends that knew all our pups which one they would pick, surprisingly, it was different for each person for various reasons.

When someone chooses a puppy based solely on color/looks they are not thinking of the puppies needs.

I am! My job is to find the right family for each of my pups.

The only way you are removed from the master list position is when you receive a puppy.

Please note that I have the first 2 spots on EVERY litter. Nobody is ever first or second pick except me.

Every list will start with #3

If any person chooses to change their mind once placed on the litter list and wishes to wait for a future litter, (removing them from that particular litter list) the choice to fill their spot is mine!

I may simply move everyone up a spot or I may fill that spot with someone that needs a service dog, ESA or other situation based solely at my discretion.

When you place your reservation fee, you are acknowledging your understanding of our master list system.
