Please review “Placement Process” before applying.

The answers you provide in this questionnaire are vital in assisting me in matching your home with the right puppy. There are no “right” or “wrong” answers. Some of the questions may seem personal; however, sincerity and honesty are essential—remember, I am trusting you for the lifetime of the dog.

The poodle’s most valuable asset is its personality, and we do our best to match our puppies with families based on temperament and family needs. We encourage flexibility in color and gender combination when applying for one of our puppies. We will not be able to accommodate prospective homes with very specific marking, pattern and color combinations, and gender preference.
