OOh this defiantely helps thanks so much Rebecca! I have met one of her toys that she used to show but now he is retired and my friend has him. I think she is the good breeder i though she was! Awesome well when im in the market for another Spoo ill have to go check out her place!Hey there--long time lurker here. I couldn't pass up responding to this thread as I just met Christine at a dog show last weekend. I don't know anything about her reputation in the standard poodle world but she couldn't have been nicer at the show. I sat beside her for an hour or so watching the poodles show and she was informative and super nice. She also brought two 4 month old spoo puppies that she had kept from her last litter. I fell in love with both pups--outgoing, sweeeet with awesome coats (already). She was telling people that her next litter would be in April--not sure the parents.
My impression was incredibly postive and if I were in the market for another poodle I would definately give her a call (if I didn't dognap one of her pups before then!)
Hope this helps,
I actually have no idea how to use one of those! So you can put the parents in and see what health testing theyve had etc?I wish I could help you, but I don't know a thing about them.Do you know how to use the Poodle Health registry. If not, perhaps if you got us the registered names of parents whose pups you may be looking at, those of us who do know could have a look on PHR and let you know what we see.
Just like Roxy said. You have to register to be able to look up dogs. You follow the instructions, and when you are searching for a healthy puppy, you put in a Parents name and go to verticle pedigree. It will list five generations of that dog with any health testing done on the dogs in its pedigree. Be careful how you view it. There are loads of dogs that say "parent of fair" "sibling of excellent". That does not mean the dog you are searching has been tested...it's offspring or sibling has. I have seen eight dogs I have been searching this past two days where none of the dogs in the actual pedigree had any testing done at all, but you see lots of hip results, etc. on other dogs that are involved in the pedigree, but aren't really in it. It sounds confusing and actually isn't. Just know what you are looking at. The COI appears in the top left corner, then the info is all listed below. If you wish to search it and have trouble understanding or figuring it out, PM me or Trillium. She is the master at it!!!I actually have no idea how to use one of those! So you can put the parents in and see what health testing theyve had etc?
