Moyen is the fourth poodle variety recognized in 98 countries by FCI partner kennel clubs. Moyens stand 13 ¾ to 17 ¾” tall, with average dogs being 15-17 ½” tall. Moyen is also known as Klien in Germany. The moyen size’s appeal is the look of a Standard Poodle but in a much smaller, easier to manage frame. Our Dogs are European Imports and or have European Heriatge. I do not breed inter variety moyens. This variety is my absolute favorite and connects me to my Russian/European roots.

I am a big believer in manifesting your dreams. Gatsby is another of my dogs that just meant to be :-)
When I started to establish Moonrise Poodles as a breeding program, I had a vision for specific lines I wanted to incorporate and planned potential breedings three generations ahead in order to combine the traits I wanted to see in my dogs. Read more in our blog.

Starz is the moyen daughter of my foundation girl Luna ака UKC BIS Kassel’s Once In A Blue Moon and is sired by AKC GCH Gadabout Virtuoso N' Vice At Timari. Using Elvis for my breeding foundation is a tremendous honor, and I am forever grateful for my Moonrise Catch A Falling Star that resulted from it.

Starz’s pedigree combines some of the oldest AKC and Scandinavian lines. Even though she comes from “in size” miniature parents, she has inherited the genetics from her Scandinavian moyen ancestors. She is tall, has a deep chest, a strong body, the sweetest expression, and an amazing thick and lush coat. Grooming competition judges and handlers frequently comment that they have not seen this quality of coat in decades. She has successfully passed this trait onto her puppies!

Starz combined and doubled the enthusiasm for learning and performing both of her parents are known for. She is always eager to please, super handler oriented and loves to learn new things. Stars is a goofball and lovebug, devoted to her people. Starz loves to give hugs and adores her newborn human sister. Her love of people and good temperament allows her to transition and adjust to situations and people around her quickly.

Starz earned all the points for her UKC Championship in 2017.
