Who we are...
The rest of the team...
We are the Thornbrughs.... We are longtime residents of Northeastern Oklahoma. Our family consists of my husband and I (Joe and Krista), and our three beautiful daughters (Shea, Ashley, and Amanda). We are a small facility located about a mile from the Verdigris River. We own and operate our business from our 120 acre farm in Nowata, OK. We run a small cow/calf cattle operation as well as our dog business. Horses, a sheep, goats, a cat, and of course, lots of dogs call our farm home!
We have been raising Goldendoodles for over 10 years now, but have been in the dog business for over 30 years. We got started raising Doodles after helping a sick relative with his Doodles while he battled cancer. We fell in love with the Goldendoodle breed and here we are...
We value family over everything and know just how much joy a dog can bring into people's lives. You can rest easy knowing your Riverbend puppy has grown up in our home as part of our family and has been exposed to all the things that go on in a home. We handle the puppies multiple times a day and do everything in our power to ensure that you are getting a socialized, well-rounded, happy puppy.
We strive to bring you the highest quality, best tempered, loving, happy, healthy, forever companion, available. And because of the Low Shed and Hypo Allergenic qualities of the Mini Poodle combined with the bubbly and loving qualities of the Golden Retriever, we think we have the perfect pet for you and yours! Please check out our site and our puppies and let us be your choice for your next Doodle!
We would love to hear from you! Please feel free to email, call, or text us with ANY questions you might have about our puppies or pricing.
We are located in Nowata, Oklahoma and we can ship to any major airport in the U.S. for an extra shipping fee ($300).
Remember... there are no dumb questions... Just drop us a line if you would like more info or have questions about anything Goldendoodle or dog related!!!
Also, check back often as we are constantly updating our website with pictures and information!
We recently welcomed a few partners to our operation! They have played an essential role here at Riverbend in assisting us with day to day operations as well as providing guardian homes for a few of our dogs. They love dogs and puppies as much as we do and they were a natural fit for our program. We couldn't imagine expanding Riverbend the way we have without their help! They've become family to us and we are excited to have them on the team!
