The adorable French Bulldog resembles the larger English bulldog in miniature, except for the large, erect “bat ears” that are the breed’s trademark feature. Their head is large and square, with heavy wrinkles rolled above the extremely short nose. The body beneath the smooth, brilliant coat is quite compact and muscular.
Bright and affectionate, a Frenchie is also quite the charmer. Dogs of few words, Frenchies don’t bark much - but their alertness makes them excellent watchdogs. They easily adapt to life with singles, couples, or families, and do not need a lot of outdoor exercise. They get along very well with other animals and enjoy making new human friends as well. It is no wonder that people fall in love with this amusing and companionable breed.
Affectionately known as "Frenchies" they are bred primarily as pets. Frenchies are remarkably intelligent and can actually serve as watchdogs as well...
The breed was developed in the mid-1800s when a small-sized Bulldog found favor in some English cities. This was at the height of the Industrial Revolution in England. The lace-making industry was among the "cottage industries" that were increasingly threatened. Many in the industry relocated to Northern France and brought along their toy Bulldogs who had become somewhat of a mascot for lacemakers and the little dogs became quite popular in the countryside.
Over a span of several decades, the toy Bulldogs were crossed with other breeds. Probably terriers and Pugs along with other breeds. Along the way developing their now-famous bat ears and were given the name Bouledouge Francais.
Paris eventually discovered the breed and before long was associated with Paris cafe life and Parisian dancehalls. By the end of the 20th century, The Frenchie's popularity had spread across Europe and to America. The breed was a tough sell in England where the English Bulldog was a national symbol and many Englishmen were insulted that their long-time rivals, the French were trying to change the breed into something else.
American devotees in the early 19th century contributed to the breed by their insistence that the bat ear and not the "rose ear", a strain that had persisted for a while, was the correct Frenchie type. This feature is what makes the Frenchie instantly recognizable the world over.
The ever-popular Bernedoodle is a designer breed resulting from the crossing of a Bernese Mountain Dog and a Poodle. They were first intentionally bred in 2003 though a hybrid of these 2 breeds may have happened by accident before then. Happy, gentle, goofy, and playful, a lot of people have found the breed to be the perfect companion and family pet.
Most of the time a female Bernese Mountain Dog is bred to a male Poodle, rarely is a female Poodle bred to a Bernese Mountain Dog male.
Bernadoodles come in several sizes. Standard, Mini, and Micro Mini. The size is normally determined by the size of the dad of the puppy. The Bernese female can be bred to either a Standard Poodle or a Miniature Poodle. Obviously, if the male is a Standard Poodle, the puppy will be a Standard Bernedoodle and can be expected to be around 55 – 70 lbs. If the male is a Mini Poodle, the puppy will be a Mini Bernedoodle and will be around 30 – 40 lbs as an adult.
Both of these would be called an F1 Bernedoodle. An F1 cross-bred puppy is a puppy that is the result of 2 purebred dogs of different breeds being bred together. If you take an offspring of the 2 different breeds of dogs bred together (an F1) and breed it back to a dog of the same breed as one of the parents, the result will be an F1B puppy.
Let’s say the dad of the F1 was a Mini Poodle, making the puppy an F1 Mini Bernedoodle, that puppy grows up and is bred to a Mini Poodle, the puppies resulting from that would be an F1B Micro Mini Bernedoodle, the smallest of the Mini Bernedoodles.
Let’s Talk about Temperament
Both the Poodle and the Bernese Mountain Dog have very friendly temperaments and love interacting with people and also with other animals. The Bernese can be very energetic and playful but they also love to just relax and chill. The Poodle is a little more high-strung and craves and loves constant attention.
Blending these 2 personalities together makes for a very people-friendly puppy that generally has a great attitude with a streak of goofiness and orneriness. The F1B puppies will tend to be even more energetic and playful since they are 3/4 Poodle and 1/4 Bernese Mountain Dog.
What About Coloring
The classic Bernedoodle has the same markings as a Bernese Mountain Dog… Mostly black with a white stripe from nose to forehead, white chin, chest, and belly. They also have white on their feet and lower legs. A classic trademark of the breed is the “rust” spots on their cheek, eyebrows, and lower leg where the dominant black coat meets the white feet. These rust-colored spots really add another dimension to their beautiful coloring.
Depending on the color genetics that the male poodle (the father) carries and passes on to the puppies, they may sometimes be a merle color or have more black and not as much rust coloring. An F1B puppy will be more likely to have less rust color and more black or even more likely to be merle colored than an F1. Finding an F1B with the classic Bernese Moutain Dog markings is sometimes harder than you would think.
No matter what color puppy you end up getting, you are sure to be pleased the with playful nature, trainability, and eagerness to please.
If you are here and reading this now that must mean you’ve narrowed it down and picked out a puppy that you want to bring home. Here is the point in the process of buying a puppy, that you may not be sure on how to continue.
First things first, when you initially choose and purchase your puppy, a deposit of 20% of the price is paid by you. When receiving your puppy, whether that means you coming to pick it up or we bring it to you, at that time we ask for the remainder of the balance to be paid in full with cash. There is, however only one exception, when we don’t have ground transportation available to your area and need to fly the puppy to you. In this case, we will send you an invoice for the final payment that needs to be paid before we ship the puppy to you.
On Goldstarpups.com, when you click into the puppy that you choose there is a “reserve me” button, If you click on that link it will add the puppy to your Shopping Cart.
Once in your shopping cart, you will have the following options to follow,
Upon previously clicking the "Proceed To Checkout" you are now in the “Checkout Details” tab where you will fill out the payment and personal info forms.

You will receive an email confirmation that you made the deposit and will also tell you the cash balance that is still remaining. If for some reason your payment doesn’t go through, check that you filled out all the info on the required fields and that the info is correct.

Our office hours are:
8 AM - 5 PM Monday - Friday,

(All times are EST)
One question we get asked quite a bit is “why we require your driver’s license”? The explanation is simple we were running into the problem of people filing claims with their credit card company saying they didn’t authorize the deposit payment they had given us, so our web developer suggested we require a valid driver’s license to be entered when making the deposit.
We never share your driver’s license number or personal info with anyone besides the transportation company that delivers your puppy which is Route 62 Pet Transport. We also give them the name, address, and phone number of the people that will be receiving the puppy.
We hope this has made your process of buying a puppy go smoothly and also has helped make your experience with us one to remember!
Let's talk about Puppy transportation! So you chose Gold star Pups as the source for your next furry friend, but it's too far for you to drive to north-central Ohio to pick up your puppy, so now what? Most likely we have the solution already in place.
We work closely with Route 62 Pet Transport to get the puppies to their new homes. Route 62 Pet Transport is a locally owned professional pet transport company that takes puppy care and customer service to the next level! They are the go-to pet transporters when we need a puppy transported.
The puppies ride in style in a customized coach outfitted especially for this purpose. Each puppy has their own individual crate where they stay during the ride to their new home. They are supplied with food and water during the duration of the trip so don`t worry, your puppy will not suffer from lack of food while en route. And of course their vehicles also have ample heat and air conditioning (depending on the season) to keep your puppy as comfortable as possible.
We will place the transportation order with Route 62. At that time you will receive an automated text from them confirming that they received the order to transport your puppy. In that text, it also says that they will be in touch later with more details.
Once Route 62 has your address, they will find a suitable location based on their puppy delivery route. The puppy delivery routes change on a weekly basis. The location to meet must be a public business with plenty of parking and must have security cameras. Walmart, Home Depot, and Lowe’s right off the highway are the type of places we typically look for. They offer ample parking and always have cameras in the parking lot.Delivery Route Maps
Route 62 picks up your puppy and takes him/her to the vet for a final physical exam to get the travel papers. Before they start their route they call you to give you the approximate time they will meet you. They then start on their route to your area and you will meet them at the designated spot to receive your puppy. They will stay in touch with you concerning any time changes that may occur because of traffic etc.
At the time of arrival, you will give whatever amount you still owe to the delivery driver that brings you the puppy and you will receive an invoice stating that the puppy is paid in full. We do ask that you pay that final balance in cash. You are then ready to go home to love and care for your new puppy for the rest of its life!
Hi there, my name is Jamin Schrock. I along with my beautiful wife own and operate Gold Star Pups LLC. We have been married for 3 years and are enjoying life among the rolling hills of Holmes County, OH. So far we don`t have any children but we are hoping God will bless us with some in the future.
We are a sales agency representing puppy breeders. There are quite a few Amish breeders in our area that are raising Quality Puppies but in order to uphold the values of their culture, most of them don`t have access to the internet. So we help them out by posting them online and finding new homes for their puppies.
A lot of people ask us "so you`re the broker"? No, a broker would be someone buying and re-selling the puppies. We are simply the sales agency representing the breeder. Similar to what a real estate agency does, if you will.
Since our goal is to provide our customers with happy, healthy puppies that have gotten a great start in life, we work only with breeders who follow the state and USDA guidelines for raising puppies.
If a breeder is unwilling to let a customer visit their home to pick up a puppy because they are afraid of what the customer will see, we will not work with them. If they need to hide something, they aren`t the type people we want to be working with.
To me its about more than just the puppies, I want to work with honest, trustworthy people that I would be comfortable getting a puppy from.
You can choose to take advantage of the quality transportation service provided by Route 62 Pet Transport or depending on where you`re located, you can come out to pick up your puppy yourself at the breeder`s place. I will write more about our transportation options in a later article so stay tuned.
God Bless, Jamin
