Absolutely a bad idea This is what the red breeders are breeding AWAY from. Of course the choice is yours. But the chances of your puppy having a brown nose is HUGE! This breeder has NO idea what they are doing !Can I expect DARK RED Standard poodle from Brown DAM and RED SIRE. Will it be DARK RED. I red somewhere in a forum that said not to breed between BROWN and RED.
Love your avatar pic is this one of the new babies ?One of my girls was bred to a brown before she was mine. What they got was ten black puppies who throw brown pigment. AWFUL!!!! The pups themselves were pretty enough blacks, but two of the females were held back for breeding and their pups, whether balck or red have awful pigment.
Brown and red are both recessive colours, so usually a breeding of these two colours will produce black, and not great blacks at that. This does not sound like a breeder who has a clue what they are doing. Bigrredpoodle is correct. THIS is what we are all trying to avoid and breeds away from. Terrible idea!!!
