I have been involved with dogs all of my life, but with Miniature Poodles specifically (white or black) for over 40 years. I was drawn to them because of their extraordinary intelligence, wonderful personality and incomparable elegance and have devoted myself to them to protect and continue those qualities that have me so enamored of them still!
I breed mostly for what I will keep as my own to breed and show; and selectively to keep to the standard set by the AKC; But those puppies that I do not keep, I try to place with people who will care for and love them as much as I do as either obedience/agility dogs and/or family companions.
My puppies are raised in my kitchen so that we can watch them constantly and they grow up to be well socialized, used to people, noise and all aspects of everyday, family life! They come to their new homes with AKC limited registrations, microchipped, with appropriate shots according to Jean Dodds, DVM. Limited vaccination protocol, health checked and certified by my veterinarian, and guaranteed. In the past, we have had many AKC Champions, Top producers, BEST OF BREED AND MULTIPLE GROUP WINNERS, and OTCH'S. We currently have a puppy in the show ring and two littermates in Obedience competition.
Health Screening: We conduct OFA testing for HIPS, cardiac, and periodically others that become available or necessary, PLUS Optigen testing for Prcd/ PRA on our breeding stock and laboratory screening for other available testing.
