I am looking for a reputable, responsible breeder of toy poodles. My pet of almost 16 years died recently. I am new to this forum.

I'm sorry you lost your dog.

I don't have a tpoo so I don't have any suggestions, but others who follow will. Do read through the following link on how to buy a puppy safely.

Welcome! I'm so sorry for your loss; I grew up with toy poodles and they're wonderful. My (from research, not personal experience) breeder thoughts are nearer to MA, though. The link provided above is excellent to start, though.

Hi and Welcome! It's sad to be meeting under these circumstances.

If you don't mind telling us what part of the country you're in (SC South Carolina?), or how far you could travel to pick up a poo, we often will have suggestions for you.

Sorry you lost your buddy. I know a breeder with a couple of toys available in New England. The Carolinas are a bit outside my circle, so I have no good recommendations there.

Closest to SC that I know I've heard good things about is G8rCreek Poodles. Even if they don't have any litters soon, it might be a good contact that knows breeders in the area.

Hi TomsMom99,

If you're still around, in addition to the suggestions given, I'm adding my handy dandy links for folks starting a search

This link should get you to pages which direct you to folks within PCA who can help with breeder referrals for your desired area.

These are AKC registered breeders but review their websites thoroughly. Look for OFA, CHIC health testing info in the site. If not on the website, ask the breeder to provide all health testing results and links (this will be on the dam and sire fyi). In fact, do that with any breeder you make contact with. A quality breeder will not hesitate to show the health documentation.

"Poodle Breeders" Standard Poodles, Miniature Poodles, Toy Poodles Breeders Directory!
All the breeders listed here are required to do appropriate health testing in order to list on that site.

Breeders here all do appropriate health testing.

Another site with multiple breeders listed. Use the same caution.

Most of us aren't breeders and don't have poodles for the purpose of showing, they are our loving companions. We are grateful tho to the breeders who believe in their dogs and literally invest the time and spend the money to train, compete, show and health test their dogs without thought of profit, so we can have our healthy and well bred pets.

There are two sub forums where you can find or start discussions of breeders recommended, and some, not so much. They're listed at the top of Poodle Talk.

If you use the Search at the top of any page, use Advanced search for breeders in your area.

Contact a few breeders to introduce yourself. Even if they don't have or don't offer what you're looking for, it can be a close knit community. They may know where to refer you.

Good luck! We hope you stay in touch.
