We had a wonderful standard male poodle--Onyx. He was with us for 15 years. We all enjoyed obedience training--and agility, when he was younger. In his prime he was 26 " at the withers and weighed between 70-75. He was lean and fit. Of course, he had a loving personality--doesn't every standard poodle?

Now we are poodle-less and looking for a new family member. So i joined the Forum to see what's new in the poodle world. Like all poodle owners its fun to read about the breed we love.

We are looking for a tall white standard. We are strictly a pet family, so he/she will neutered/spayed.

We live in Syracuse, NY but travel frequently to Baltimore, Maryland to visit our daughter. If anyone knows of a breeder who may have large whites, please drop us a note.

Thanks for organizing the poodleforum.com.
:peace:

WELCOME Onyx.... nice to have you join us. :)

Sorry to hear about the loss of your boy. It is nice to hear that he lived to be such a good old age. I know what you mean about "once you have a standard poodle"... I have always had a doberman, still do have one and still love them, but now that I have two standards, I found there is nothing to compare them to. I know I will ALWAYS have standards till I am too old to take care of a dog anymore...lol.

I do know that the person we (my sister and I) got two of our standards from... and they are wonderful personalitied ones.... had a litter of all white pups. We stay in contact with her so I can email her and see if she has any or any upcoming if you would like? She lives in RI, if that is not ridiculous distance for you. We live just Southeast of Bennington, VT and it was not a bad ride for us at all. I think it took us 2 1/2 hrs.

Again. welcome!

Welcome to the forum, Onyx. Glad you are enjoying it here.

I am jester's moms sister. We absolutely love the two poodles we got from the person that she mentioned. Her white puppies were just adorable.

I, too, am sorry for your loss. That is a lot of years to spend with a special friend. I hope you find another to love just you did him.

:welcome: I am new to the poodle world, my boy is almost 11 months and I know exactly what you mean about once a standard always a standard - although I think my taste may be spreading to the little guys too, but definately another poodle for us once the old GSD goes.
