Welcome to Abounding Poodles

Where Toy Poodles Are Bred Responsibly!

Our love for Toy Poodles and desire to see this AKC breed have a standard of excellence compelled us
to originate Abounding Poodles. Toy Poodles have been our passion since 1986.
We have been competing in the show rings since 2004.


We Breed to Improve

No puppy is an accident, but each is the result of a careful mating that will produce an exceptional litter of puppies, with qualities that are as close as possible to the ideal AKC Standard for the Toy Poodle breed.

Champion Bloodlines

Responsible breeders take a step back and honestly evaluate the good and bad points of their own dogs before making the decision to breed them. The goal of breeding is to produce a better dog. Dog shows are the best way to get an objective opinion of your dog, by testing it against others.

DNA Tested, OFA Certified

Our adult dogs are tested for various genetic diseases most common to Toy Poodles in order to ensure that puppies produced will not suffer from these conditions.

Good Temperament and Sweet Disposition

Our dogs are also screened for behavioral issues and only those who are sweet, intelligent, and with an overall sound temperament are allowed to contribute to the Abounding Poodles gene pool. (...more)

A Good Representation of the Toy Poodle Breed

We aim to produce what a Toy Poodle ought to be. You will not find a short-legged, big round protruding eyed dog in our lines. Our goal is to produce a "Poodley Poodle," a good representation of the breed that can proudly carry the Abouding name in its pedigree.

Health Guarantee

All puppies have a 48 business-hours window to be checked by a vet. During this period of time the puppy may be returned for any health issues. Thereafter the puppy will be covered in case of a genetic life-threatening disease until its first birthday. You can find the detailed Health Guarantee here.

Lifetime Support

We are just one phone call, text message, or e-mail away. Contact us here.

We Carefully Screen Potential Adoptive Families

No puppy shall ever be sold to a puppy mill, a pet store, or an agent of either. Potential families must fill out an extensive questionnaire and provide references.

Available in WHITE, RED, APRICOT, and BLACK.

Our Past and Present Champions

A Tribute to Our Champions

From time to time people tell me, "Lighten up, it's just a dog," or, "That's a lot of money for just a dog." They don't understand the distance traveled, the time spent or the costs involved for "just a dog." Some of my proudest moments have come about with "just a dog." Many hours have passed and my only company was "just a dog," but I did not once feel slighted. Some of my saddest moments have been brought about by "just a dog," and, in those days of darkness, the gentle touch of "just a dog" gave me comfort and reason to overcome the day. If you, too, think it's "just a dog," then you will probably understand phases like "just a friend," "just a sunrise," or "just a promise." "Just a dog" brings into my life the very essence of friendship, trust, and pure unbridled joy. "Just a dog" brings out the compassion and patience that makes me a better person. Because of "just a dog" I will rise early, take long walks and look longingly to the future. So for me, and folks like me, it's not "just a dog" but an embodiment of hopes and dreams of the future, the fond memories of the past and the pure joy of the moment. "Just a dog" brings out what's good in me and diverts my thoughts away from myself and the worries of the day. I hope that someday they can understand that it's not "just a dog" but the thing that gives me humanity and keeps me from being "just a human." So the next time you hear the phrase "just a dog." just smile.... because they "just don't understand." - Anonymous.

A show quality puppy is one which, in the breeder's opinion, should be able to become a champion. A pet quality puppy is less likely, in the breeder's estimation, to become a champion. (more...).

We have raised donkeys, sheep, goats, and dogs. In every case, the neutered male makes the best pet. If you are looking for a pet, I'm partial to the males. Here is why (...more).

Poodles come in a variety of colors - but never should be "parti" (mixed). We offer red, white, apricot, and black. More about the Toy Poodle Standard here.
