In 2014 when the time was finally right, my first multicolored miniature poodle Luna joined the family. I learned the ropes of show handling in UKC, taking Luna to her Best In Show win, group wins, and Top Ten Breed standing in 2014, 2015, 2016.
In 2016 I bred Luna to an UKC CH. Rosies Gift To Kassel making Moonrise an official breeding program. This breeding produced Alice, my first homebred Grand Ch Moonrise Lost In Wonderland and a moyen Hendrix. This two amazing poodles inspired me to follow my own lead. Luna’s second breeding was with AKC GR.CH Elvis and produced my moyen girl Starz. These breeding set the course for my focus on miniature and European style moyen varieties.
My breeding program’s goal has always been to improve and promote multi-coticolored poodles who fit my ultimate poodle criteria. I approach this goal through continuous interbreeding of high quality classic colored poodles with the best multicolors, striving to improve type and structure with each generation while preserving health and temperament.
I sought out to find black and brown poodles from German, Danish, Norwegian, Austrian and American lines to aid with genetic diversity, strong conformation, exceptional temperament, and health. My parties were imported from Russia and Ukraine for their sweetest temperaments. I was fortunate to acquire parti-color carriers from top US show lines, making it possible to stay on course from the beginning. My newest challenge is developing red and white parti colors and establishing toy lines. I am forever grateful to my mentors who believed in my ideas and freely shared their knowledge.
