Powder Valley Poodles is a breeding kennel devoted to raising the best puppies possible for families, individuals and as working dogs.
We can’t do that if our dogs used for breeding have to live in an outdoor kennel for most of their lives. It doesn’t show us their potential and it is unethical and inhumane. I know most breeding kennels operate this way. But we are different. Dogs need companionship. Human companionship is best. We can’t have all of the dogs that we own right in our home. There is only room, time and energy for so many.
This is why we offer guardianship opportunities for families and individuals who qualify.
Guardian-care dogs in our breeding program must have a secure yard and an owner who is home most of the time. Someone working an eight hour, 5 day a week job would not be suitable.
- We pay for all routine medical costs and anything related to breeding.
- The foster owner agrees to pay for food, toys, beds and grooming.
Candidates for guardian parents must live within 60 miles of Fort Collins, CO and be willing to bring the dog to scheduled veterinary appointments. The new guardian family may keep the dog and her babies after birth and watch them grow up (until the pups are weaned) or choose to let the dog have her puppies here at the ranch and take her back after the puppies are weaned.
Guardian Homes Needed
Large Toy or Small Miniature Poodle, Female
Flyer (AKC Powder Valley Rusty’s Radio Flyer)
Male Red Tiny Toy Poodle
Flyer is the very little brother of our working therapy dog, Jo Jo. Jo Jo is almost seven years old and had been one of our stud dogs. However, his job now is to work in a medical practice in Greeley as my wife’s therapy dog. He visits patients about 9 hours a day four days a week. He is truly a working dog with a very important job to do and he LOVES it. And the patients love him as well. Flyer is Jo Jo’s little brother. At only 4 months of age, Flyer is on course to mature just around 5 to maybe 5.5 pounds. Right now he weighs 3 pounds at 4 months of age.
Flyer is very deep red. When his soft, lighter puppy coat is removed with proper grooming he will be a stunning deep red color. He should hit his mature weight at about 12 months of age.
Flyer is a dog that we will want to keep as a stud for many years. Assuming that he continues to pass all of his genetic tests we want him to continue Jo Jo’s tradition of exceptionally sweet, exceptionally smart, and exceptionally intuitive toy poodles. Additionally, Flyer should contribute great health, great conformation with color, and a temperament to make other breeders jealous. In other words — Flyer has everything we desire as our toy poodle stud.
Additionally, we will be showing him in conformation classes in order to (hopefully) get his International Championship. I don’t doubt that the judges will love him.
We are looking for a guardian home for Flyer that will give him a stable environment with a secure house and yard that is fairly local to Fort Collins. Other, small pets are fine as long as they are spayed or neutered. As the only intact male animal in the house Flyer will have NO reason to mark territory and be a pest.
The guardian home will need to make Flyer available when we wish to breed him. This could be as often as once every month or so on average. Breedings are done at one of two locations. Either at the ranch here at Powder Valley Poodles North of Wellington. Or, at the CSU Veterinary Teaching Hospital on Drake St. in Fort Collins.
My Dream home for Flyer is a retired individual or couple who really just like to hang out at home and garden, knit or watch tv. Flyer has no desire for long walks in the country, going to dog parks, or doing anything other than hanging out at home in a lap. He is a lap dog. He has no delusions of grandeur of being anything other than a lap dog (and producer of lap dogs). He just wants a lap with a person or persons attached to call his own and he will be DELIGHTED.
If you think you or your family will be a good match for Flyer let me know. Contact me via my phone. It is a landline and does not take texts.
Call 970-568-7585. Flyer is waiting to to hear from you….
