Do you believe in a sign? I do. Well let me explain. Like some of you know I'm looking for a miniature poodle, brown or black. I searched the web for poodle breeders, found this forum :clap:, selected few breeders in a driving distance and contacted them, searched more about them and eliminated them one by one. Last one has a line of poodles from I think is the one of the best mini poodle breeders, recommended also here, but she asks $2500 for a show quality puppy.
Here you recommend to go to poodle shows to meet breeders, so I Googled local shows and found one next weekend. I just called for more info and let the lady know I want to attend also because I'm looking for a puppy. She asked what size and color, so I told her black or brown mini, she responded she is also a breeder and her black and brown female poodles expecting litters in two weeks, so if I want we can talk at the show. I couldn't believe it. All her dogs are AKC champions, some international, with all the health testing. Well I don't have to tell you I'm so excited. Is it a good sign?
What else can go wrong? I'm learning so much here and because I learned, I was able to eliminate the previous breeders. I'm very grateful for that. So let me know please what else I should watch for to get a good, possible show dog, she promised to help me to pick it out, but I like to be also educated, at least little bit :wink: Thank you

Listen to your gut.

That's what I did with Flip, and so far he is the perfect dog for me.

(We've only had him since Saturday, but still, he's fantastic.)

Way to go Evik! Talk about dedication to the cause, that's what I like to see. :) Make sure you report back and let us know how it goes.

Congratulation on your Flip, what size and color is he? Did you post a picture I mist?

It sounds like you are very diligent and have found a real prospect worthy of your attention! Things always happen for a reason. Do trust yourself and enjoy.

Thank you, but little help about how to pick the "right" puppy will help.
What to look for, what to watch out for, .... will any more knowledgeable member help, please?

Since you are looking for a show prospect, I'm not the one to ask. I'm sure another more knowledgeable poster will give you some suggestions soon. You might even PM some of the members that are breeders or do showing for their specific advise. Best way to tell who they are is to look at previous posts and view their profile. Hope that helps.

Hey,

He is a standard pup about 6 months old or so.
He is cream. I posted his rescue pic in my intro post, but I'll work on getting more recent pics up.

He's a blast. :)
