Backwoods Homestead


Our History

Greetings! We’re Joe and Ruth Ann, a couple to nurturing a loving family alongside our shared passions. Married for 7 years, we’re blessed with 5 incredible children. Ruth Ann finds solace in cultivating beautiful gardens while Joe’s expertise lies in the artistry of stonemasonry.

Beyond our devotion to family, we pour our hearts into raising well-socialized and robust mini-Bernedoodles. Ensuring the utmost care for our pups’ health and happiness is our top priority. Each furry member undergoes extensive socialization, ample exercise, and meticulous veterinary care. They’re microchipped, vaccinated, and regularly dewormed to ensure their well-being.

We’re eagerly anticipating the opportunity to connect with you and assist in welcoming one of our cherished pups into your family.

Warm regards from our family to yours!

Common Questions


What is a Responsible Dog Breeder?

• Vet-checked and updated on all vaccines and deworming
• Microchipping of all puppies

Is my deposit refundable?
Your deposit is fully refundable within a 48-hour window. Alternatively, you can transfer the deposit to reserve another puppy
Is my purchase refundable?
Once a puppy is paid in full, refunds are not available, nor do we accommodate refunds for buyer’s remorse. Please review our health guarantee in our Refunds and Returns Policy page which includes a 30-day money-back health guarantee.
Do you provide a health guarantee?

We want every puppy to go home happy and healthy. To ensure that all is
well in its new environment, we ask that if possible you get your puppy
checked by a vet within 10 days of going home. We also recommend not
placing your puppy down on any grass where other dogs have gone to potty
until your puppy is seen by a vet. To view the whole health guarantee, please visit our Refunds and Returns page.

What is the process for adopting a puppy?
