Our puppies are sold on a first come, first serve basis based on the sex, color, and temperament needs expressed by prospective buyers. We guarantee puppies to be free of genetic health issues as tested for Standard Poodles.
The owners and breeders always reserve the right to pick and keep show and breeding puppies determined at eight weeks of age. Show quality dogs may be sold with co-ownership agreements in accordance with the Poodle Club of America ethics.
Puppies who do not qualify as show or potential breeding dogs will make outstanding companions. Puppies are sold on a companion basis with spay and neuter agreements.
All of our Poodle puppies are raised in our home in the midst of family life. From day one they are handled, socialized, and groomed in preparation for their future lives.
We will orient new owners and send puppies to their new homes with much information: veterinary history of the puppy, a written health guarantee, feeding schedule, future vaccination schedule and information about the parents including pedigrees and health testing. We expect to be available for consultation on the phone following puppy placement.
We will only sell to responsible homes whose occupants understand the requirements to take the best care of a puppy. We reserve the right not to sell to homes that do not meet requirements to the time and care needed for a new puppy.
A $500 deposit and completed application are required to reserve a puppy. This is non-refundable deposit as per the policy on good faith deposits (attached on the agreements page). We accept deposits only when we have a confirmed pregnancy by ultrasound.
Please see the “Sample Purchase Agreement” for the details about puppy purchase. A puppy will only be released from its litter after nine weeks old to provide for good socialization behavior. Releasing puppies at this time also allows careful selection of puppies to best match their new homes.

If you would like to make one of Canzone puppies a member of your family, and would like to reserve your puppy, please read the attached "Policy in Good Faith" deposits. When we have a confirmed pregnancy, you can enclose a $500.00 deposit (non-refundable) in the form of a cashiers check, money order or personal check made out to Jeff Smith. This deposit will only be refunded if for any reason I as the seller decide not to sell said puppy, or if the seller does not have the color or sex of the puppy available as stated above.
Please note: Companion puppies will only be sold on a spay/neuter contract. Conformation and breeding dogs are sold on a co-ownership contract agreement.

Policy on Good Faith Deposits
1. The deposit is non-refundable unless we do not have a puppy of the sex and color and from the litter you indicated at the time you made the deposit. This means that if you suddenly change your mind and decide you do not want a dog, and a puppy of your preference is available, you will forfeit your deposit. If we don’t have a puppy of the color, sex, and litter you want, we will promptly refund your deposit.
2. At the time you make your deposit, you must indicate the color (white, black or color doesn’t matter) and sex (male, female or sex doesn’t matter) of the puppy you want. This guarantees that we will be able to place the right puppy in the right home. We make extensive efforts, by talking to buyers and by observing the puppies’ behavior, to match puppy and buyer closely.
3. A deposit does not guarantee that you will be able to pick a puppy from several puppies. If several pets are available in a given sex and color (say, there are three white boys), we will let buyers who have made deposits pick their puppies in the order their deposits were received. This means that if buyer Jones made a deposit on April 21, and buyer Johnson made a deposit on May 2, Jones will be able to pick from the available pet white males. Because we are show breeders, we reserve some puppies as show prospects, and so picking from among a large number of puppies is not possible.
4. If there is not a puppy of the color and sex from the litter you indicated available, you may ask for your deposit back, change color, sex or litter desired, or hold the deposit for a planned litter.
5. Once we have a confirmed pregnancy, interested buyers may visit our home before making a deposit. This enables you to meet the Poodle relatives and see the environment in which the puppies are whelped and reared.
6. You don’t have to make a deposit. If you feel that putting down a deposit is not right for you, you can call back when the puppies are almost ready to leave (at seven or eight weeks) and ask if any are still available.
7. A separate agreement, signed at the time you pay in full and pick up your puppy, includes a 72-hour health guarantee and a three-year genetic health guarantee. A copy of this standard agreement is attached or available on the CANZONE Standard Poodle web page.
