She's really cute and probably more so dryed. I think she maybe a Cafe Lait in color and will turn lighter as she matures. I say that because the muzzle is lighter and nose is more liver and the lighter eyes. Being Cafe is not a bad thing at all just something to expect.

Are you looking for a show potential too or just a good companion/therapy dog. I think your right about the pedigree....good lines behind her. That always make me feel better regardless of a pet or show dog. I think she's pretty and is going to look like doll all dryed and fluffed up.

I am not planning on showing in the show ring but in AKC obedience trials, poss. agility, as well as taking to nursing homes and hospitals and horse back riding but also for future breeding after her OFA and other tests are done. So, I want to, obviously, start with good quality as well as excellent temperament/personality. I don't want to breed anything that has serious/obvious faults, whether it be in form or in temperament. So, I was curious if the eye color was a serious problem as it states the eyes should be amber and these are a bit on the light side.

And, thank you for the pics... very helpful. I have been studying everything to do with standard poodles for months now and bought two books on them, but I cannot believe how hard it is to find decent photos of adult Cafe's, silver beige and adult browns that have faded, as they say they all do. To find pics of puppy to adult pics is not easy..lol. Much easier to find black or white puppy to adult pics. :) I really like his adult color a lot!


Well Mikey's eyes where a lighter hade as well. I think that if you would like to breed her eventualy just make sure the male has dark eyes and not medium to light eyes. She sounds like she's what your looking for except the concern of her light colored eyes. I certainly agree about finding decent pics of cafe's and silver beige Poodles.

She looks like she's pretty otherwise. She's probably a little over angulated right now but that gives her room to lose some angle's as she matures. If he had her stacked a little better her top line would be even more level and it would show her tail set better. Her being understacked make's the tail set look a bit lower. Nice length of neck and length on muzzle in my opinion. I think she's worth seriously considering.

I had thought that they were, I talked to the breeder and they are not, the grandparents on both sides of the pup are OFA'd and are excellent and good, but I had thought the parents were also done. Yeah, I already told the breeder I would have to pass on her. Well, back to the looking again..lol. I want to find someone close enough so I can drive to see the pups and parents- at least the mom if she was bred out. Well, time to do more searching. :)

Thanks all for your thoughts!
Do you mind me aking what state you live in?

I forgot to add that if you do not mind shipping http://www.ben-chers-poodles.com/ has some great looking poodles.

Would you be willing to drive to your neighboring states? Go to akc.org and look at the show list in your area. try UKC also and go to the show and talk to some poodle breeders. Tell them what you are looking for and they probably have info on breeders in VT.
Umm.....Im not trying to be negative but that website sounds like there running a business of breeding Poodles. I also didn't see that they practice health testing if thats something she was looking for. :bolt:

There is another website called pupcity that breeder's list on. I don't know anything about the website but I took a quick browse and lots of adds...some good and some undesirable which you'll get on everywhere.

Maybe try Kijiji classifieds. Ive seen breeder's list on this site as well.

THANK YOU EVERYONE for your thoughts and helpful info. I have been searching the web and looking for good breeders reasonable distance around me and found one 5 hrs. away and will be going down to see the pups (two chocolate females) Thursday. Both parents are OFA'd and eyes done and sebaceous and thyroid. I am excited to go see them and, if I bring one home, I will be certain to post pics of her!
Oh good! I can't wait to hear what you think or if one comes home.
