We at Powder Valley Poodles only breed dogs who have passed many tests to insure that we only produce physically, mentally, and behaviorally superior puppies. The dogs profiled on this page are who we hope to breed in the future. However, they first have to undergo many tests — hips, eyes, heart, temperament — before being placed in our breeding program. Our puppies are the future of our program.
Meet Cotton – Ellie!
Ellie is from the “Fabrics” litter of Dream and Elvis, Jr. She is an F-1 goldendoodle. This means that she is half standard poodle and half golden retriever. Ellie got her name “Cotton” from the fabric theme but the “Ellie” part was later added because she was born into the time of the toilet paper wars. Thus, “Cottonelle”, which became, “Cotton- Ellie”.
Ellie is a standard goldendoodle and has the potential to mature between 60 and 70 pounds. This picture, taken at 3 months of age, shows her beautiful blonde-gold color and her expression, which is focused and calm. And right when the picture was taken — a little worried, as she had just received her second set of puppy shots and didn’t know what horrible thing might be next!
Ellie is very sweet, calm, easy, yet still playful and engaging. She will make an excellent addition to our line up of breeding girls. I am so impressed with her, (and her entire litter), that I will breed her mom, Dream, to Elvis, Jr. the next time she goes into season in order to keep another little girl (and maybe a boy) from what will be Dream’s very last litter. Look for puppies from sweet Ellie in late 2021 or early 2022.
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 small mini goldendoodle only weighing 15 pounds at one year of age. I don’t think she will get much bigger — maybe a couple more pounds but that would be about it. 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. All of our other, older, dogs understand “Football Season” in our household. But Harper has yet to learn that yelling (happily), yelling, (unhappily), groaning and anxiety are normal behaviors and sounds while the football teams we follow are on tv. Harper spends a lot of time in my lap staring into my eyes while the Broncos are playing. I’m hoping she gets used to it soon….Expect toy (9 to 15 pound) goldendoodles and Micro, (6 to 8 pound) goldendoodles from our girl Harper sometime in the later part of 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!
Expect Munchie babies in early 2020.
(AKC Powder Valley Isis’ Pretty in Jewels)
Jewels is from Houston and Isis’ “Pirate” litter. She is a gorgeous, apricot with white standard poodle who is tracking to be a 65 pound adult dog. Jewels works with her guardian mom who is a therapist and is a much loved and appreciated member of the therapy team. Expect beautiful Jewels puppies in 2020.
Sophie is our cute little minidoodle daughter of Robbie and another breeder’s goldendoodle girl. She is blonde with red highlights and a joy to be around. We took Sophie in exchange for a breeding fee and are so glad we did! Sophie will mature around 25 pounds and when bred with Solo, Flyer or Vinny will produce some WONDERFULLY sweet, family-friendly and cute little goldendoodles. Look for Sophie puppies in 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. Under her puppy coat that will eventually be shaved off is a gorgeous, deep red goldendoodle with a huge heart and an incredible temperament. Dakota is the type of puppy 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 would be 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 in 2020.
