At Moonrise poodles my miniature poodles range between 13 to 15 inches and 10 to 20 lbs. Despite their smaller size, these are “real dogs” who make great playmates for active families.
Their smaller size makes them ideal for apartment dwellers and smaller homes.
Minis are easy to travel with, and older children and teenagers can handle and train them on their own.
Our dogs enjoy running and playing, hiking, going to farmers’ markets, boat rides, and any other activities we invite them to.

Black and white tuxedo

Beca was imported from Moscow Russia in December of 2018 at one year old. She handled the transition like nothing happened proving her stable temperament.
Beca was shown in UKC by my daughter but did not enjoy the limelight. Beca is very gentle, polite and clever. She is also a problem solver.
She learned to beat her tail against the door to be let in instead of barking.
She is very athletic and fast! Her morning routine consists of running as far and fast as she can to check a few trees for squirrels.
After a couple of laps, she is happy to sit down and have a morning coffee with us.
Beca has made an amazing and gentle mom and auntie.
Beca has been retired in 2021 and is enjoying life as an only dog and companion to a family member.

Ch. Gulfbreeze Show Me How U Burlesque
14” 20lbs

Tina joined Moonrise poodles as an adult. Tina was finished to her AKC CH while owned by her breeder Terry Wellman and gained UKC champion points while handled by my than 6 year old daughter Alyona.
I met Tina a year prior to her being offered to me while picking up Gatsby from Terry Wellman - Gulfbreeze Kennel.
At that time Tina struck me by her sweet and outgoing, yet confident personality. Her compact frame, thick coat, and poise screamed Poodle. So it was a no-brainer that she would come to Moonrise when the opportunity presented itself. She is impossible to overlook and everyone who meets Tina falls in love with her instantly. Tina is the matriarch in the pack for sure. She is hypervigilant, looking out for everyone's safety, and keeps order. In summer 2020 Tina bravely fought a 4 ft Timber rattlesnake, saving the lives of other dogs, and lived to tell the tale!
I am incredibly grateful for an opportunity that was awarded to me to own a dog of Tina's caliber.
Tina is sired by BISS GCh Compostela Sunraze Storm Surge "Sarge" who went Best Opposite Sex at Poodle Club of America 2011. Tina' dam is an imported AKC CH Smart Connection Remember The Time who comes from the top European bloodlines.


Kassel’s Dragon Lilly


Vivienne is a cheerful little red poodle who comes to us from Kassel Poodles to continue the late Mrs. Debb Smith legacy.
Vivienne is sired by Kassel’s Red dragon and is out of Shiann’s Lilly of The Valley Kassel.
I adore Vivienne’s personality. She is cheerful, loves people, she is happy to play outside and then cuddle inside, as long as she is with people.
She loves playing fetch but if no one available to play with her she will happily entertain herself by tossing pinecones and toys! Vivienne’s favorite place to sleep is right on my pillow!
