AKC Powder Valley Stunningly Brazen Magic N the Making
(clearances posted soon)
Magic is our gorgeous, big, deep red, standard poodle who at just 10 mo. of age is already 25 inches and over 50 pounds. He has all of his DNA clearances, has had his hips recently cleared by our vet for breeding and we will also be going the CERF and OFA route as soon as he is old enough at twelve months of age for his OFA preliminaries. This puppy is absolutely gorgeous. He is stately (when not being a goofy teenager), he is sweet, he LOVES people and everyone he meets, he is great with the little bitty poodles when around them and he is doing great in his obedience and conformation classes. I CAN NOT WAIT to show him and his sister Sunny in the October dog shows. I have a very good feeling that they will both do very, very, well. Last year we missed the shows because I had a dog due to give birth that weekend. I will do whatever I need to do to get Magic and his sister in those shows this year.
Yankee, (yes, Yankee Doodle. I couldn’t help myself…)
Yankee is a deep red male, happy-go-lucky and playful little mini doodle from Nilla and Robbie. He has beautiful deep color and a happy, tolerant and expressive personality. He has all of his DNA clearances and at 14 months of age his hips were declared normal per our veterinarian.
Solo (AKC Powder Valley Rowdy’s Millinium CMDR)
Solo is an International and National Champion Miniature Poodle. He is a beautiful tri-parti-color and has an outstanding, confident and outgoing temperament. Weighing in at 15 pounds and 15 inches at the shoulder, Solo is considered the “perfect” size for a miniature poodle and with his confident, friendly and engaging personality, he gives his puppies that poodle temperament that everyone who loves poodles is always looking for. We are very proud of our boy Solo and look forward to using him for many, many years.
DNA Clearances so far are:
vWD — Clear, DE — Clear, DM — Clear, PRA/PRCD — Clear
OFA Hips, “Good”. OFA Elbows, “Normal”
Flyer (AKC Powder Valley Rusty’s Red Radio Flyer)
Flyer is the sweet, tiny red son of our Rusty and Cameo (both retired). Weighing in at about 5 pounds you would think he was frail and needy — quite the opposite! He may be little but he is a robust, healthy, super-affectionate little boy. He loves everyone he meets and is also quite curious and friendly with even the biggest dogs he has been exposed to. His size makes him vulnerable — so he’s not allowed to meet many big dogs — He would be a snack if they chose so!
Flyer carries Rusty’s deep red color. We will be doing more genetic testing on him to see if he also carries Cameo’s abstract color patterns. So far, all the orthopedic tests and DNA have been favorable but done only to insure health. Soon we should also know what colors he will be able to pass on.
As soon as we see the results from those tests we will offer him as a stud. In the meantime, he’ll have to be content with just our girls.
AKC Tango’sHaus Placer Gold Robbie Burns “Robbie”
Robbie is a very correct red and white miniature poodle with a wonderful temperament and superior conformation. We are very happy to have Robbie as one of our stud dogs. He has passed all of his genetic tests. Robbie is one of our most popular stud dogs. He produced beautiful, colorful and desirable puppies when bred to golden retrievers, old English sheepdogs, Australian shepherds and — his most popular — Bernese Mountain dogs. Robbie adds sweet-nature and outstanding color to any litter he sires.
Robbie’s Clearances include:
DNA: vWD, DM, NE, PRA-PRCD — all are clear.
Cardiac, Elbows and Knees — Normal (OFA)
OFA Hips — Excellent
Eyes — Normal (OFA 2020)
Carrier for Parti-Color Markings
Houston is a beautiful red standard poodle belonging to Dr. Richard Wheeler, the Board Certified Specialist and professor of reproduction from Colorado State University Veterinary Teaching Hospital. Houston is from a hunting/working line of standard poodles on the west coast but is also gorgeous enough to have achieved a puppy championship from an International show. Houston is the total package, combining solid working aptitude with grace, conformation and a wonderful, tolerant, accepting personality.
Houston’s clearances include OFA Hips Good, DM, PRA – PRCD , vWD clear.
AKC Tango Haus Powder Valley Rosa Rosa Vino
Vinny is a tall toy poodle who produces puppies much smaller than himself. Typically, 2 out of 5 Vinny puppies will mature 5 to 7 pounds. The other puppies may be another few pounds depending on the size of the dam. Vinny is a gorgeous red sable and produces both red sable, solid apricot, apricot with white markings and phantom – patterned puppies. His puppies are typically friendly, outgoing and full of life. Vinny is very sweet and sensitive.
Vinny’s Clearances include DNA DM, NE, vWD, PRA-PRCD Clear OFA hips, “Excellent”
Elvis, Jr. AKC Golden Retriever
Elvis Jr., is not owned by Powder Valley Poodles. However, we do use him frequently in order to produce our half and half Foundation Standard Goldendoodles. When bred to one of our standard poodle girls, Elvis contributes substantial muscle, weight and color to his offspring. His deep, deep, red color is beautiful. And although Elvis, Jr. weighs in at about 70 pounds, most of that weight is in big bone and muscle. His children typically will mature at about the same height as their dam but much more muscular and with more weight. This added heft can do wonders when used to help someone with mobility issues go up and down stairs, get in and out of bed or chairs and when used to pull a wheelchair. Elvis Jr. is a typical golden retriever — he has never met a stranger and he loves everyone. Additionally, with genetically inherited cancer so widespread in the golden retriever breed, Elvis Jr.’s line apparently does not carry it. His predecessor, Nemo, also did not carry heritable cancers. This means that our goldendoodles — although not immune to cancer — do not inherit the propensity to develop the disease like so many other goldendoodles from other breeders do. We are very proud to offer goldendoodle puppies from Elvis, Jr. and our girls. They are sweet-tempered, tractable, good-looking and very healthy. They make incredible working dogs for assistance and emotional support and are wonderful, easy to live with family companions.
Elvis, Jr. Has been DNA cleared for genetic disease associated with golden retrievers and has an OFA “Good” on his hips.
