We are back once again to searching for the perfect male. There are a few things that are paramount to the perfect stud(for us)
1) Great health and clearing all health testing
2) Shorter body smaller, great conformation, with a higher tail, nice rear angulation, great teeth, and a bigger chest.
3) Great personality, willing and eager to learn, smart, patient, with self control. loves people and other animals.
4) Beautiful with the correct coloring of the Standard Poodle standard.
We think we may have found him! He is missing a couple thing on our wish list, but so far we really like what he is offering. We had another male lined up, but upon deeper investigation, He had a couple things that were not optimal. We still may use the other stud in the future, we will assess each breeding after each litter. Keep checking to see if we indeed do decide to use this male , and voice any concerns you may have if you are on our wait list.
***I will post full body stacked pictures when he is better groomed lol
Diamond in the rough
try to look past his scrappy non-groomed look, he really is nice, just lived at a non show home.
Here are his pros and cons:
*Great health record
*Happy, friendly, smart
*Shut off switch/willing
*produces healthy puppies
*really nice square body
*learns extremely fast
*easy to groom
*likes other dogs
*nice rear angulation
*All testing already performed and passed
*carries Parti, Brindle, Phantom and Sable
*along with black/blue/silver
*Med/high energy (i like
*could have a shorter nose
*non titled/has run fast cat
*can be food aggressive
(may be because he was
fed in crate)
*a little bit larger than I
was hoping for
