Note about the German Shorthaired Pointer: The GSHP is a breed that has been around for a very long time. They have been used as hunting dogs and family companions for many, many years. They have such an excellent all-round dependable temperament and their scenting ability is so strong, combined by their friendliness and physical soundness that the United States Government has offered good, reputable breeders of the GSHP monetary incentives to produce more puppies to be trained for government service. The TSA, the DEA, the US Dept. of Agriculture and the secret service. The US government needs bomb-sniffers, drug-sniffers and fruit-sniffers — all in a dog that won’t be a danger to someone’s toddler who breaks away, runs up to the working dog and throws his or her arms around it. This very scenario happened to me while working in a very crowded mall with — thank God — a 115 pound German shepherd who loved kids. With a lot of working dogs that could have been a disaster. With the average GSHP it would not be anything more than a break in it’s focus, a good face licking and a lot of stubby tail wagging. This temperament and dependability is why I have chosen the GSHP to cross with my standard poodle studs. My goal is for these dogs to be less shedding, keenly intelligent and intuitive working dogs for people with mental or physical disabilities and WONDERFUL, kid-friendly family companions.
Benelli is a purebred German Shorthaired Pointer with an excellent nose and very good hunting instincts. She IS a hunter — and I’ve seen her in action. She, combined with our standard poodles Bandit or Magic — should produce some excellent hunting dogs who will not shed nearly as much as your average hunting dog. Being half and half — the puppies — depending on the individual — will shed some. Just not as much as a pointer. When combined with our miniature poodle studs, the resulting off spring will be the perfect-sized family dog that can entertain the kids all week AND retrieve water or land fowl all weekend. German Shorthaired Pointers are one of the very few breeds chosen by the United States Government to be multi-purpose scent dogs. They sniff out drugs, bad guys, illegal fruit, bombs and disease spores. They are a wonderful, stable, healthy and versatile breed. And the addition of the poodle genes reduces the shedding. And, as soon as we can, we will reduce the shedding even more when we add one of Benelli’s half-poodle daughters to the breeding line up. But, that will be in the future. For now, you can expect Benelli/poodle puppies to start being offered in the winter of 2020.
Dakota (which, by the way, is a Lakota Indian word that means, “Friend”) is a female, half golden retriever (Elvis, Jr.) and half standard poodle (Tahoe) first generation standard goldendoodle. Tahoe’s adult coat is turning out to be a gorgeous, deep golden red. Tahoe is a big girl and has an even bigger heart. She has an incredibly sweet, calm and steady temperament. Dakota is the type of dog that EVERYONE should have if they’ve got kids — especially if this would be their first dog. Dakota is gentle, naturally well-behaved, quiet, LOVES people (especially kids) and has NEVER met a stranger. As a watch dog she would bomb terribly. But, as a family dog she is the one that EVERYONE in the neighborhood wishes THEY had. An absolute gem, I’m expecting mini, medium and standard goldendoodle babies from this wonderful little girl starting in late 2020.
Munchie is the cute and playful daughter of Cous Cous Cootie (now retired) and Robbie. She got her mom’s beautiful phantom black and red color but her dad’s personality. Munchie is very much like her dad, Robbie — playful, outgoing, confident and LOVES people. ANY people. Not a serious bone in this girl’s body — she just wants to have fun, play, be held and be a bit of a goof-ball. This is one happy girl. When life gives you lemons — play with them!
Munchie babies from Vinny will be small miniatures and toys. They will come in all kinds of colors — reds, black, apricots, sable and phantom. The puppies will be playful, outgoing, curious and intuitive. These puppies from Munchie and Vinny will be wonderful, athletic and engaging companions and super affectionate lap dogs. They will be able to paddle board with you in the morning and more than happy to snuggle in for lap time and a movie that night. Expect Munchie babies by Winter, 2020.
Sophie is our sweet, 29 pound mini goldendoodle daughter of our Robbie and another breeder’s female. She is three quarters poodle and one quarter golden retriever. Cream with red trim, Sophie is calm, sweet, respectful and quiet. Still playful — A real joy to be around. When bred to one of our toy poodle boys I expect Sophie’s puppies to be incredibly cute, smart, fun and affectionate. Look for Sophie puppies in the summer or fall of 2020.
Harper is the adorable little mini goldendoodle daughter of Nilla and Robbie. She is three quarters poodle and one quarter golden retriever. Harper is a petite mini goldendoodle only weighing 16 pounds at 18 mo. of age. Harper is athletic, playful, curious and loves everyone and everything she meets. She is our little retriever and she gets a lot of retrieving in when I sit on the couch watching tv while throwing her toys down the hallway.
Harper is EXTREMELY tuned in to people’s emotions. She gets right up in a lap and sticks her nose inches from someone’s face to stare into their eyes when she encounters someone who is upset or crying. She LOVES children of all ages and is very, very gentle with toddlers.
Expect toy (9 to 12 pound) goldendoodles when bred to our boy Vinny, and Micro, (6 to 8 pound) goldendoodles when bred to tiny Flyer. We will also be breeding Harper to “Zip”, our European Biever Yorkshire terrier/poodle cross for our upcoming (in 2021) litters of Yorkie Doodle Dandys.
Silver is the gorgeous minidoodle daughter of Maya (now retired) and Vinny. She has her mother’s beautiful silver phantom color pattern and, her mother’s sweet, sweet, temperament. When you add Vinny’s intuitive and playful personality to the mix you end up with one heck of a great dog! Silver weighs 25 pounds. She is sweet, calmer than most and incredibly biddable. She, like her mother, lives to please and loves EVERYONE. We plan on breeding Silver to Robbie for some incredibly smart, intuitive, sweet and trainable puppies that very well could be extremely colorful. The combination of Silver and Robbie should produce puppies with a very high genetic propensity toward being excellent service, therapy and competitive obedience dogs. And, of course, WONDERFUL and easily lived with family companions and children’s playmates. Look for Silver puppies in mid 2020.
AKC Powder Valley Brazenly Stunning Sunset N the Making
” Sunny “
Sunny is the deep red, beautifully built sister of our new stud, Magic. She, however, at 22.5 inches at 10 months is much smaller than her brother. Combining her superior conformation, incredible, deep, red color, luxurious coat and refined, feminine features with our boys is going to produce stunning puppies with incredible beauty, superb conformation, beautiful color and superior temperament. A wonderful mix of great looks with working ability, intuitive nature and competent abilities. I can’t wait to see her pups in action.
(AKC Powder Valley Robbie’s Red Fox in Sox)
Foxy is our gorgeous miniature poodle daughter of Robbie and it shows! She has his color and his markings. Her temperament is splendid — like Robbie she is sweet, friendly, intuitive and very, very smart. She also inherited her mother, Cous Cous Cootie’s, beautiful and very correct conformation. I’m sure that Foxy’s gorgeous color, conformation, intelligence and sweet, sweet, nature, will be passed on to what will be very popular off spring.
Honey is a wonderful, sweet, easy-going and intuitive standard goldendoodle from Jersey (retired) and Houston. A beautiful, honey golden color, Honey is bright, friendly, playful yet respectful. A very, very, nice example of what people want in a family dog. Completely non-shedding, Honey will produce wonderful little working and family dogs when bred to our miniature and toy poodles, and stately and calm therapy, service and family companions when bred to our standard boys. Honey’s offspring — regardless of who the father is — will grow up to be the dog that everyone in the neighborhood wishes THEY had: beautiful, friendly, calm and loving. The perfect goldendoodle.
‘Shadow is our pretty and unusually colored chocolate and red phantom AKC miniature poodle girl from Allie and Robbie. She is a very sweet, quiet and respectful little girl who weighs about 10.5 pounds and is about 11.5 inches at the shoulder. She is a smaller miniature but with Allie as her mother and Rowdy as her uncle has the genetics to produce the full-sized 15 pound, 15 inch miniature poodles that some people prefer.
‘Shadow is a mama’s girl. But she doesn’t discriminate when it comes to WHOSE mama she is next to. ANYONE, male or female can be her mama. As long as they don’t object, she will quietly and discretely somehow end up in your lap and she is so gentle you won’t realize she is there until one of the other dogs complain that a visiting interloper is taking their spot. I am looking forward to beautiful Moonshadow babies in early 2020.
Chloe Spice is the cute, playful and loving goldendoodle daughter of our standard poodle girl Tahoe and goldendoodle boy, Roscoe (now retired). She gets her pretty parti-color markings from her granddad, Robbie, as he is a parti-carrier. Chloe Spice is a mini/medium goldendoodle and weighs about 28 pounds. She is very sweet, smart, and playful. Chloe loves everyone she meets, human or dog — doesn’t matter — and has never met a child she doesn’t want to immediately adopt and take home to keep. Chloe has passed all of her qualifying tests to determine breeding eligibility and will be having little toy goldendoodle puppies with either Vinnie or Solo starting in 2020. We are greatly looking forward to being able to offer sweet, charming, playful and colorful Chloe Spice puppies as family companions, children’s comforters, working service and therapy dogs and ESSD for anyone who needs that very special friend.
Autumn is the pretty little miniature poodle daughter of our girl Ritz and our red sable boy Vinny. She is a smaller miniature, only weighing 8.5 pounds, but she is lanky and still growing and will most likely mature right over the “Toy Poodle” height limit of 10 inches. Autumn is very, very, sweet. Very affectionate and very tolerant. She loves children and gets along with any dogs she meets. Quite soft in her personality — she isn’t timid at all — but she wants to be accepted by all and treats everyone she meets with respectful attention. From her point of view — EVERYONE is a potential friend and warm lap, and if you ask her to, she will be more than happy to sit there and be petted and talked to. Had a hard day? This little girl will try to take the burden from your shoulders. Respectfully, quietly, and lovingly….
Although Autumn doesn’t have the color, coat, or features desirable in a show dog, her personality, temperament and good genetic health earned her a spot in our breeding program. ANYONE would love a puppy like Autumn….
Kimber – Too
Kimber – Too is our sweet little 9 pound red sable toy goldendoodle — a daughter of Sachi and Vinny. Kimber – Too is a daddy’s girl through and through and loves hanging out with her guardian, Randy and his family. Whether he’s working at his desk or watching tv, Kimber – Too is right there with him, snuggled on his lap or by his feet. When Randy isn’t around Kimber is with the kids, watching — and participating — in very important kid-games of forts, dance practice, and make believe worlds. Kimber will be producing our microgoldendoodles when bred to tiny Flyer, our 5 pound toy poodle, for adorable — and very small — lap-sized goldendoodle puppies.
Jazz (Powder Valley Dandee’s Jazzed Juniper)
AKC Standard Poodle from Dandee (retired) and Houston. 38 pounds. Quiet, calm and feminine. Jazz is stunning. A feminine version of her dad, Houston. She is calm, gentle, dignified, very, very sweet and extremely intuitive. She carries her dad’s color and athletic conformation and her mom’s quiet, calm and attentive personality. A perfect blend of the two — Jazz — combined with either Robbie, (for our moyen-sized poodles), or Yankee, (for our mini-medium goldendoodles) will give us beautiful, friendly, sweet and easily trained babies.
Dolce (AKC “Powder Valley Houston We Have No Problem”)
Dolce (pronounced, “Dole Chay” Italian for “soft and sweet”)
Dolce is the inky black daughter of our beautiful Dandee, (now retired), and Houston. I wanted to keep a girl from Dandee that would be just like her mom — sweet, calm, intuitive and, of course, beautiful. I succeeded with Dolce. She is just as nice as her mom and just as pretty. Her puppies give us gorgeous inky black and red puppies when bred to Bandit that are sweet, calm, focused and easily trained. When bred to one of our goldendoodle studs we get the same thing with a hint of golden retriever gentleness in an equally beautiful but smaller, package. Be looking for your next wonderful family pet, working ESSD service dog or therapy partner from one of Dolce’s litters.
Ziva (AKC “Powder Valley Robbie’s Dangerous In White”)
Ziva is not dangerous at all — named after the popular character from the NCIS television show, Ziva is the beautiful daughter of Cous Cous Cootie (now retired) and Robbie. She is a very unique tri-parti-color in black, white and reddish brown. Ziva is a very sweet daddy’s girl — glued to her guardian Ethan’s lap when he is not working. She is a petite miniature poodle that weighs in at about 11 pounds and standing about 12 inches. Ziva’s unusual color is outstanding, but, unlike many unusually colored poodles — her conformation is just as stunning. She is the very epitome of a female miniature poodle — feminine yet sturdy, athletic, pleasing to the eye, and so, so, sweet and wanting to please.
Skye ( AKC ” Powder Valley Bandit’s Red Skye at Morning”)
Skye is the beautiful daughter of Dream and Bandit. A wonderful combination of Dream’s sweet, intuitive nature and Bandit’s calm, regal presence. Skye is a stunning, true, example of what a real working standard poodle should be: regal, intuitive, calm and focused. This makes for both a great service or therapy dog as well as an awesome companion for the family.
Tam (AKC “Powder Valley Dandee’s Sleeping Lady”)
International and National Champion Puppy 2017
Tam is a gorgeous, tall, lanky, solid inky-black standard poodle. An International Champion like her full sister, Tahoe, Tam looks nothing like her sister. She does, however, look almost exactly like her grandmother, Diva. Same coat, same head, same stance and same inky-black color. She looks so much like her grandmother that we wouldn’t be able to tell their pictures apart if they were not inscribed with names.
Truffles is the sweet little daughter of Pebbles and Vinny. She is a brown sable with white and weighs about 8 pounds. Truffles is three quarters poodle and one quarter Biewer (European) Yorkshire terrier. Like her mom, Pebbles, she has a soft, sweet, affectionate personality. Like her dad, Vinny, she is smart, intuitive and friends with everyone she meets. When bred to tiny Flyer, our 5 pound toy poodle, Truffles gives us sweet, active, playful and BEAUTIFUL little tri-colored puppies that don’t get much bigger than 6 or 7 pounds.
