There aren’t that many out there in mini size. At least not good breeders and the good ones will either keep them for future prospects and or only petting them out. To get the right genes (phantom, parti, not ee, and no KB ) takes years of planning and breeding. Probably the best way of finding a breeder would be on the poodle color gentics forum on Facebook. I wouldn’t advertise that you are looking but search in the post for conversation and then you could contact and ask.

Good phantom breeders are hard to find, never mind phantom parti-poodles. The best mini poodle breeder I know that occasionally has phantom poodles is Darkover poodles. She does all the appropriate testing and shows etc.
Yeah still would love another phantom myself.

I'm glad you're researching the breeders carefully. There's an old saying in the horse world, "If you breed for color, you'll get into a lot of trouble." That's because a careless breeder might be willing to overlook faults or temperament just to get the color they want.

Since my wishes have been for performance dogs, that's what I look for in the pedigree first. I thought my current dog would be black but he turned out to be blue. That works, though, since a blue dog is much easier to photograph than a deeply black one!

I got this shot at a Southern ON ABID show. Many moons ago.
The Phantom belonged to one of our Cantope gang. Buddy was breeding Toys and happened to come up with a Phantom. Cute little guy.
He got out of breeding Toys tho. He said 'they break too easily'.

Check with Great Lakes Poodles in Michigan - greatlakespoodles.com. We have our Klein (moyen) poodle from them and Wynne is a wonderful breeder who does all physical and personality testing. She has phantom moyen pups, and has been researching additional colors, including a recent litter of parti/phantom. The smaller of her moyens are under 20 lbs, while the parti size are closer to 30 lbs. Wynne and her family raise all their dogs in-house and are very involved in their care and development. Here's our Charlie (black and red phantom) at about 5 months at Christmas and at 3 months.

It is hard to find partis, phantoms, etc. in good mini breeders. I originally searched for a Parti color mini, and found a few, but ultimately decided to go with a quality breeder of blacks and whites. Like mvh plank, I was looking for a performance prospect and knew her dogs had done well in agility. Long story short, I put a deposit down on a litter in which there would be both blacks and whites....and she unexpectedly had a black pup with a white blaze in that litter! That pup, who is my Gracie now, was meant to be with me.
I am very partial to parti colors, but don’t want to sacrifice quality for it.
Be interested to see what you find.

BTW, is the pic your puppy? Or an example of what you’re looking for? Cute pup!

Hi there. I got my mini phantom from a breeder in Florida, not sure where your location is. She does health testing and raises her puppies in home. My Bella’s mom is also a mini phantom, so more often than not one phantom appears in her litters (from what I’ve seen). You can try her Facebook at AnnaAsh Poodles or Anna-Ash Poodles
She occasionally has parti litters too!

I’m now partial to phantoms because Bella is my whole heart. I wish you luck with your search.
