We are expecting a litter of several black and a few white Standard Poodle puppies: April 4, 2019. The dam is Ruth, and the sire is Julian. Due to strong interest, we have deposits on several puppies. We will know more about the availability of puppies to additional caring and responsible homes soon after the puppies are born.
We are also planning on a litter of puppies in November, 2019, out of Sophie. We are in the process of choosing an outstanding sire that will complement her pedigree and type. Once we know the sire, we will also be able to predict colors (black and/or white) of the puppies.
When the puppies are about four weeks old, they are moved with their dam to the kitchen area at the center of our home. This is where many other dogs stay and play, and where many different people come to interact with them. All of our eight adult Poodles live in our home with us as part of our family.
In addition, the puppies are exposed to many different home items (vacuum cleaners, umbrellas, stereo music, food processors, sliding doors, etc.) and grooming tools (hair dryers, brushes, spray bottles, etc.) They are given a variety of objects and dog toys for their learning and fun throughout their development. And of course, they play with their litter mates much of their awake time.
We keep our pups until they are nine weeks old so they have the very best start in their new, permanent homes. In addition to being well-socialized, the puppies are well fed and in good weight, veterinarian checked, vaccinated appropriate to age, and groomed. They are clean, healthy, and parasite free. The puppies have been introduced to crate, potty, and lead training, and they come with a health guarantee from genetic issues sometimes found in Poodles.
Thank you for your interest in Canzone Standard Poodles. We hope to hear from you soon after you explore our web page!

Canzone Breeding Bitches
RUTH (Am Champion Safari’s Canzone Di Compassione), about 23 inches tall and 50 pounds, gives us lessons on how to get along with all other family members, including some very other assertive Poodles! Ruth is loyal, upbeat, good-natured, confident, playful, and a good problem-solver. She is an “easy keeper” as she eats well, potties herself quickly after meals, keeps herself clean, and responds to training cues. In addition to wrestling with the other dogs, she loves to play ball, and makes a great shortstop! Her breeder is Cynthia Huff and Joel Haefner who have been breeding wonderful, healthy Poodles for about 40 years. Ruth’s sire (Grand Champion HG Safari’s Subversion) is featured on the Sept-Oct, 2018 edition of Poodle Variety magazine. Ruth has cleared all of the genetic tests recommended by the Poodle Club of America: Chic # 132480.
SOPHIE (Am Champion Grandeur’s Canzone Girl Crush) is about 22 inches tall and 38 pounds, pretty and white in color. Sophie is enthusiastic, affectionate, friendly with others, and quick on her feet. She is great about entertaining herself with dog toys, and she also loves playing with dogs around her age. She is really good with a ball, usually getting it before anyone else! Sophie has many years of successful breeding behind her by Phyllis Blair, Grandeur Poodles, known for their beauty and good nature. Sophie has cleared health tests in hips, thyroid, and eyes as recommended by the PCA: Chic # 135672.
