I have been raising AKC Toy poodles in Toy, Tiny Toy,Teacup and Pocket size puppies for over 25 years.  They are the light of my life!  I am dedicated to producing healthy, happy, well socialized puppies!  I have high quality bloodlines but, my soul purpose is to place my puppies in loving homes where they become part of the family.  Therefore all of my puppies are sold with limited registrations (no breeding rights).   My puppies are raised  underfoot with lots of TLC and attention, as puppies should be.  All of my puppies will have had their shots according to age, been wormed starting at 3 weeks of age and in weekly intervals, and their tails will have been docked before they ever leave home.  They come with their shot record, AKC registration application and a written genetic health guarantee which can be viewed at the top of the poodle puppies page.  All of my dogs are treated as household pets.   My entire day is spent with them playing in their large yard or inside if weather does not permit outside play.  They are all kept clean as well as groomed on a regular basis.  I feed a well balanced diet of Science Diet hard kibble and canned Science Diet dog food. They get plenty of exercise, fresh air and sunshine which I believe contributes to good health and happiness.  Plus all the love they deserve (if you can give them enough love).  I do ship puppies within the continental US at their purchasers expense of and additional $400. through United Airlines Petsafe program.  This price includes the airline approved crate, health certificate from my vet and the flight itself.  Puppies can be shipped at no less than 8 weeks of age and are under no circumstances allowed to leave home before 8 weeks of age.  I only ship Toy and Tiny Toy size puppies, not Teacups or Pockets for their own safety to protect them from hypogylcemia.  Temperatures must not be over 85 degrees or under 50 at either end of the flight for the puppies health and wellbeing.

AKC Breed Standard for poodles states that:  A Toy Poodle must be 10" or under in height (weights vary) with a level back line, tightly curled hair in a variety of colors, a bright intelligent sparkle in it's eyes which should be set at ear level, an even/scissor bite.   The classification by weight (Toy, Tiny Toy, Teacup, and Pocket) is how we breeders determine the adult weight/size of a TOY Poodle and how to price them but they are all registered with AKC as TOY Poodles.   

 

NO PET STORES, PUPPY MILLS OR PUPPY BROKERS PLEASE!  My puppies go directly to new homes with loving owners only.  I reserve the right to refuse to sell one of my puppies/dogs to anyone I don't feel comfortable with.  I am responsible for them being brought into the world and assuring that they are maintained in the manner in which they are accustomed to.

These are the playpens that I raise my puppies in. We had to build on a sunroom just for them since we are not allowed to raise them in our home!!?? I couldn't tell you why but it's Texas law.

These playpens are great for a safe place to keep your puppy when you have to run errands or go to work.

Playpens come in a range of sizes. These are the smaller ones that fit pretty well anywhere. And they break down flat for travel also.

Please excuse our construction when coming to visit. As you can see by the line of tools along the fence, we are still working out here. The kennel itself is complete but we are running sewer and water lines at the moment and have framed up for the cement porch and sidewalk to be poured. Which should happen this week if all goes as planned. If you have ever built anything from scratch you know that not everything goes as planned.lol But if it does we will be moving in by the end of this week!!

We put an awning over their doggie doors leading outside so that they don't have to get out in the rain to "go" and it also shades their doors and prevents "splash" from coming in when it rains.

Inside we have the cabinets up but still have to install the washer and dryer as well as the bath sink and bathroom sink. Then the next step is to throughly clean and seal the floor (once we have water!) and install the inside runs fencing. The central heat and air works like a charm so we obviously did a good job insulating. Thank goodness because let me tell you it was HOT working out there in 106 heat index with no air!!

Also, since the state of Texas does not allow us to raise our precious puppies in our home (I'll never understand that one), we have adding on a sunroom to the back of our house (with a seperate entrance from the house as required by law) to raise our puppies in. That way they are still raised underfoot (as I have always done and believe they should always be) but we are still abiding by the law :) There's more than one way to skin a cat. lol
