About Sunshine Acres Goldendoodles

Are you searching for the perfect Goldendoodle Puppy? Welcome to Sunshine Acres, where our Goldendoodle puppies enjoy interacting with our family throughout each day.  As experienced, ethical Goldendoodle Breeders we help match many families to their wonderful Irish Goldendoodle puppy. 

What are you looking for in your new puppy?  A walking buddy, a cheer-giver, a friend of children?  In your quest for a healthy, loving Goldendoodle, we can help match you with your ideal puppy.  We are available with tips and advice to make the choosing easier since we interact with each puppy daily since birth.  Let us know what characteristics you are looking for in your Goldendoodle puppy so we can point you to the puppies or litter that best matches those traits.

Our Golden Irish, Golden Retriever and Poodle parents all live here at Sunshine Acres.  Our puppies are born here. They are lovingly raised by our family.  Because of this, we know not only their individual health history and temperament, but the history of their parents.  In many cases, our Goldendoodle puppies’ grandparents and great-grandparents were also born here at Sunshine Acres.  We are glad to be a source of knowledge for you, not only before your Goldendoodle puppy comes home, but for the many years after, as well.  Relationships are important to us and we are interested in watching our puppies integrate into your families and your lives.

Sunshine Acres is Customer Recommended

Sunshine Acres is a customer recommended Goldendoodle breeder since 2002.   Described by our customers as professional and responsible, open and transparent, we focus solely on the wonderful Goldendoodle cross and its parents breeds.  Our F1 Irish Goldendoodle puppies, F1B Irish Goldendoodle puppies and Moyen poodles are from lines carefully selected for their superior health and temperament.  We raised precious, snuggly, and beautiful Goldendoodle and Irish Goldendoodle puppies for sale since the days when almost no one knew what a Goldendoodle was!  As experienced Goldendoodle breeders, we know what genetic lines and physical characteristics to look for in raising smart, well balanced Goldendoodle puppies with a coat that is low to non-shedding.   After 20+ years’ experience in raising the sweet natured Goldendoodle, our puppies have developed a distinctive “Sunshine Acres” style.


Our puppies have a purebred poodle for their sire, and their dame is either a purebred Golden Retriever, or a hybrid Golden Retriever/Irish Setter.  A hybrid puppy from tested, purebred parents is the healthiest cross possible due to “hybrid vigor”.  We are committed to continually improving our breeding lines through carefully selecting each parent for the characteristics that results in puppies with the most desirable pet and therapy dog traits.


We welcome families to come and visit our Goldendoodle puppies and their parents.  Since we are NOT an online puppy wholesaling company, each of our puppies and their parents are available for visits here at our home in northwestern Indiana.  Unlike the commercial puppy marketing websites who have never raised a puppy or laid eyes on the dogs they are advertising, we are not reselling puppies from ANY other breeders.  Each of our puppies was born here, grew from babyhood here and will go directly home to their forever family.  Feel free to call or email us.  You’ll be reaching a family who wants to make the puppy picking process memorable for your family, not a puppy marketer.  We are available to help match you with the right puppy, at the right time.


Don’t just take my word for it.  Check through our website and read through the years of Facebook and Instagram posts by our Sunshine Acres’ families.  Links to our social media sites are posted on this page. Ask us, or the online community, questions about our Goldendoodles.   If you live far away or near, we have found that social media can bring you in touch with doodle families from coast to coast who are sharing their lives with a Sunshine Acres Goldendoodle or Irish Goldendoodle. 


Having families come back to Sunshine Acres as repeat customers to purchase another Irish Goldendoodle is very rewarding to us, as we consider this the ultimate compliment.  As the years go by, a larger percentage of our puppies find their new homes through referrals from our customers to their friends, family, co-workers and neighbors.   What fun it is to see our dogs enjoying their role as “Best Friend” to their new families.  While our puppies are happy to fill the role of family companion, some of our Goldendoodles fill a different role as service dogs, assistance or therapy dogs as well as search and rescue dogs.

What Our Customers Say

Our family had a wonderful experience with Sunshine Acres from the very beginning. Michael was so wonderful answering all of our questions and educating us on the litter we were selecting from. From selecting our new best friend (a day so memorable and a process made so special for our family) to pickup and beyond, the team at Sunshine was so very supportive. We can’t imagine our world without our boy!!

Erica and Michael were awesome in answering all of my questions and eased all my anxiety as a new puppy parent. You can tell that they love their dogs and the early stimulation and environment results in such an intelligent and happy puppy. We would recommend Sunshine Acres to anyone looking for a reputable breeder who loves their dogs!
Kathleen G.
Erica and Michael have been fantastic in communicating with us throughout the process of choosing, purchasing, and preparing for both of our puppies, and we are so impressed by the excellent care they give to their puppies and parents. Additionally, the extent of genetic and health testing completed with Sunshine Acres’ dog parents has made the cost investment in both of our furry friends more than worth it!
