Hello everyone,
I’m happy to say that I’m a future miniature poodle owner. I’m interested in seeking out a reputable breeder who health tests and whose lines have good temperaments. I live in Gulfport, MS and I have no preference in color. My new family member will be strictly a pet, as I do not wish to show. I’ve found lists of mini poodle breeders online, and they all say they breed dogs with good temperaments. Pretty sure I still need some word of mouth recommendations to help in this process. I will be as patient as I need to be to find a healthy, stable pup. Willing to travel for the right breeder. I’d appreciate any recommendations or sharing of experiences. Thanks!

I’m just getting started, but I’ve bookmarked Aery in NC and Morning Glory in TX. I think I might lean towards silver, but like I said, color is low on the list compared to health testing and temperament. Since I’m not in a hurry, was hoping to find some first hand recommendations from happy pup parents.

Welcome! I was at your point back in March and now I have the most wonderful pup, so I can say there's lots of good times headed your way. There are sooo many things to research and consider when choosing a breeder and litter, and it can be a bit overwhelming. In my search I narrowed it down to four breeders and then selected based on which I felt would be the best match for what I needed. All breeders say they breed with good temperament, but a good temperament for one person easily qualifies as a poor match for another. Make sure you talk in detail with breeders about the sort of dog you're looking for, because there's a lot of variation even within litters. I wanted a breeder that would pair pups with owners rather than let owners pick, because I knew I was looking for a specific temperament. So far I am very happy with the outcome.

Welcome to PF. I second the recommendation on Aery and hope Skylar will chime in here too. I know a few others but they are further away from you.

I like this breeder in Missouri, of both standards and miniatures. My experience is limited to them being on my list 3 years ago. I submitted an application and was accepted, but went in a different direction. They health test parents and show in conformation. There is a miniature litter due on the ground in July.

ADOPTABLE STARS

Excellent choices! Skylar's beautiful and talented Babykins is from Aery.
Thanks MF for the compliments. Yes my Babykins is from Aery/Morning Glory. She’s a gorgeous silver. She’s a failed show prospect so I got her when she was almost a year. They did a wonderful job of socializing her, she loves everyone and all friendly dogs. She’s a sweetheart. Always up for fun but has an off switch so she can be a coach potato. I get tons of compliments on how well behaved she is and how beautiful.

Johanna’s Zoe is from Aery/Donnachada I believe, so that’s another good breeder of minipoos to check out.
