Hello and welcome!
We have some exciting news!
We'll be expecting a litter of puppies around August 25th, 2015. These puppies will be the larger (Royal) sized puppies.
I am currently accepting a few deposits - which will hold a puppy in your name, prior to delivery. Please send an e-mail, or give me a call for details.
We are very excited to announce a new addition to our poodle family. Solo's Ranch Hand, also known as "REUBEN"
Reuben came from Solo Standards. Breeder, Jean Miller, located in Nebraska.
Reuben has been a delight. What a wonderful dog!
He is three years old and loves to play fetch. I've never had a poodle that loves a ball like this guy! I bet he could play fetch for hours... if only our arm would last that long!
Reuben is a solid built, male steed, with lots of muscle. Reuben tends to pass along this deep, dark red color, and large size/ stature to his off spring. He has the more 'squared' nose, (not like the smaller boned poodle with a more pointed nose) Our steed, Rusty has this same type of build.
Reuben will be an outstanding addition to our breeding program. He has the size, the personality, the dark red color and pretty much everything you'd look for in a companion.
Watch for updates and photos of Reuben. Reuben will be bred with DARCY, and GINGER (Rusty/Cedar pups that we have kept in our family from previous litters) - to say the least, these puppies will be outstanding!!!

We are a small, family operated poodle breeder, owning four red standard poodles. Three females (Cedar, Foxy & Ginger) and one male (Rusty) who is the father to all our puppies. All of our poodles live with us in our home. They are part of our family and we love them dearly.
Our puppies will grow to be a larger sized standard poodle. (some know them as 'Royal Standards') Adult males will weigh approx. 75-85+ lbs, females approx. 70-75+ lbs. 28"-30" tall, to the shoulders. We have had a few puppies reach 31" tall, when full grown. Checkout the photos on the 'Sold Puppies' page.
All puppies come with a limited ($1300.00) or a full ($2500.00) AKC registration papers. Full AKC papers will allow the owner to breed their dog, and register the puppies.
Once one of our females are bred, I will send out an e-mail announcing an expected litter. At that time I will accept a limited number of deposits, to hold a puppy. after the litter is born, I willl accept deposits on the remaining puppies.
A five hundred dollar deposit is required to hold a puppy.
At approx 6-7 weeks of age, the new familes can pick out their puppy in the order of which we received a deposit. Families purchasing full AKC registration will have a higher priority, when choosing their puppy.
Viewing of the litter prior to 5 weeks is fine, but only for a short time, as it makes the mother uncomfortable. Handling of the puppies is not allowed until they are 6 weeks old, at which time the 'puppy picking' will start. We will identify which puppy you pick out by marking them. (for example) a female with the front right foot shaved, or a female with the left rear foot shaved, male with both front feet shaved, etc.
In the event a familiy changes their mind on purchase, deposit monies will not be refunded, but used towards additional advertising expenses in selling the puppy.
At eight weeks old, the puppies are ready to go to their new homes. We do offer boarding for your puppy at $20.00/ day if pick-up is delayed and goes beyond 9 weeks old.
With each puppy, we send home ("scented" like their mother and siblings) a towel and a stuffed animal to help with the transition when leaving their parents. They will have their first set of vaccines, wormed (at approx 7 weeks old) a 2-year written health guarantee against genetic issues, (as of date, we have never had any problems with our adult dogs, their puppies or from the breeders we bought them from) and a 6 lb. bag of puppy food, (Purina Pro-Plan Puppy, shredded chicken) If you choose to change puppy food, use this bag to slowly switch them over and to avoid an upset stomach.
If a genetic issue arises within the two-year time frame. (or actually any time in your puppy's life, as we need to know this for breeding purposes) Please get in touch with us. Send us a letter from your veterinarian, describing the issue. If indeed there is a genetic issue, we will offer you another puppy, or place you on the waiting list for the next litter.
Please note: we do not ship our puppies out of state, as we have no problem selling them in Colorado. On the other hand, we have had several families from out of state purchase a puppy and find alternate ways of getting them home. All arrangements of taking a puppy home when living out of state is the responsibility of the new owner.
Yet another option is to use a 'pet chauffeur'. Katie Tice is located here in the Denver area and will help you make arrangements to fly your puppy. www.petsfly.com Katie is a pro when it comes to shipping pets and is very reliable. Phone: 720-291-4974
"Royal Standard Puppies" It is very important to pick up your puppy as close as possible to eight weeks old, as these little guys are big! At eight weeks old, female pups will weigh approx 17 lbs. Male pups will weigh approx 19 lbs. Both are about 14" tall to their back. The pups will fit in the soft sided carry-on bags, recommended by the airlines which fits under the seat in front of you. It will be tight, but families who fly in to pick up their puppy make it home!
These are BIG puppies!

Nice red coloring.
Our dogs are part of our family and are not kept in kennels. All of the puppies are raised in a family environment and able to run free. We do not keep our dogs in kennels.
Oh, not another picture... What a funny girl!
