Responsible Breeding of Toy Poodles
(Athens, Georgia - East of Atlanta)
Our love for Toy Poodles and desire to see this AKC breed have a standard of
excellence compelled us to originate Abounding Poodles. Nothing we do is an
accident, but each Toy Poodle Puppy is the result of careful breeding for
optimal results in health, compliance to the AKC standards, intelligence,
sweet temperament and good disposition. Our desire is to see each Abounding
Poodle Puppy be better than its parents. We carefully select and only
use the best Toy Poodles we have to produce new puppies.
Our Georgia (aka Ch. Shambala Abourding Georgia) became an AKC Champion when she
Atlanta, GA on Sept. 18-21, 2008. She won all 4 days and was able to
finish in one weekend, accumulating 4 majors and 19 points!
We appreciate the work of our handler, Adriano Rocha.
Georgia was added to our family when she was 8 weeks old.
I brought her with me from my hometown in Brazil to be
added to the Abounding family.
Georgia is currently on lease and shall shortly be back to
our Abounding Poodle home.
