lily cd re recommended you to me; I wanted to know if you could recommend breeders within 2-4 hours of Philadelphia.
My wife and I recently lost our female Standard Poodle, she was almost 14. She was very special to us. Smart and attentive, good with people and OK with other dogs. Not too energetic but did have her moments of being silly.
We have one strong lead on a breeder locally, she (our groomer who has shown standards and done agility) is mentoring her first puppies under the supervision of Unique Kennels. They are just about 5 weeks old this weekend.
It is nice to know the breeder but we also think it's important to explore options. We are interested in a Standard and are leaning more toward a female. Our last was black but we are more interested in personality and intelligence than color. My wife works from home and will be able to keep an eye on the puppy but does need to work as well.
