Hello all!! My name is Rayley and this is my first post although I've been lurking for 2 days now lol! You all seem to have such great information and I need your help. Ive known I was going to purchase a poodle this year now that I've moved into my own place. But Because of COVID-19, i decided to move my "puppy timeline" to now rather than late summer because I am teleworking for the foreseeable future. However, I am having a hard time finding a breeder near me (I'm in the Washington DC area). I've looked at the breeder recommendations in the Poodle Club of America, but it seems as if none of the breeders have updated their websites this year (some have not had updates since 2013!). So I need HELP!!! If anyone knows any reputable breeders preferable North Carolina and up and east of the Mississippi, please let me know! Thank you!!
