you're looking for that perfect puppy you may need to wait for a
litter to be born. Reputable and careful breeders do not have
puppies available at all times, and a good puppy is well worth the
wait. If you are willing to settle for just any puppy, that is
exactly what you will get - "Just any puppy! "
As a respected,
reputable breeder of purebred Standard Poodles, I do not support the
cross-breeding of poodles to any other breed.

allow a poodle to adopt you! - Versatility In Poodles
Poodles is a small kennel and breeder, producing only one or two
litters a year. We are just beginning our breeding program, using
extreme care and caution, concentrating on health, temperament and
the betterment of the breed.
We expect to produce black, blue and occasionally cream puppies.
Puppies will be well-socialized, health-checked and sent home with
all vaccinations appropriate for their age at delivery, dew claws
removed and tails docked. Litter evaluations for show potential will
be made at 9 weeks.
Potential buyers will be thoroughly interviewed to be certain the
responsibility of owning a standard poodle is clear, and also to
help make the best match of puppy to owner. Please don't be offended
by our questions; it's concern, not curiosity! ..... A
non-refundable deposit is required to "hold" a puppy. All
puppies sold as pets are sold on a spay/neuter contract. Puppies
purchased for show potential will be co-owned until a championship
is achieved, and a future responsible breeding contract will be
included in the purchase documents.
If any buyer is unable to keep or care for a puppy purchased through
Calisun, we will gladly accept the return of your Calisun poodle for rehoming.
According to breed scholars, the Poodle's origins most likely took
place in Germany where it was known as PUDELIN (meaning "to splash")
because of its love of water. It was the French, however, who
honored the Poodle at home, in court circles and on the battlefields
thus earning the dog the popular but incorrect title, "French

Things you should rightfully expect from a reputable breeder - - -
health conditions common to the breed are listed on their web site.
Health conditions for puppies are guaranteed in writing. However,
please understand, even when the sire and the dam and many
generations have been tested and found free of specific health
problems, there is absolutely no guarantee that a puppy will not
develop one or more of the problems that commonly affect poodles.
BUT, buying a puppy from a breeder who tests breeding stock
considerably increases your chance of getting a long-term, healthy
puppy. A reputable breeder will give you a written guarantee on the
puppy's health, and information on the sire/dam's health
certifications. A responsible, conscientious breeder screens all
breeding stock for hereditary health problems for which there is
currently testing available prior to utilizing any dog in a breeding
program, and ceases to breed animals which have produced such health
problems in their offspring. They are delighted to answer any
questions about the health and temperament of the puppy's sire and
