Our love for toy poodles and desire to see the breed have a standard of excellence compelled us to originate Abounding Poodles. Nothing we do is an accident, but each puppy is a result of careful breeding for optimal results in health, compliance to the AKC standards, intelligence, sweet temperament and good disposition. Our poodle babies are God's gift to us to better enjoy life and share this joy with others.
Our Love for Poodles
The name "Abounding" came from the fact that our poodles "abound" with life, affection, beauty, and health. We aim to "Abound" in high quality dogs.
My first poodle was a white female I received as a gift from my parents in 1985, Mila. I have been in love with this breed ever since because they are so smart, beautiful, loyal, and affectionate. Their desire is always to please. There is never a day when they wake up in a bad mood - they are always happy, wagging their tails and so eager to please.
Our Goal in Breeding Poodles
We breed for quality, health, and a sweet disposition. We believe that if you want to get a poodle, it ought to be a POODLE -- one that fits the standard of the breed in good disposition, cuteness, health, and sweetness. I would not sell a dog to you if I was not confident that these dogs did not have the health they need to have to be a long-lasting companion. Please read article: Responsible Breeding Vs. Backyard Breeding. Also please read Questions to Ask a Toy Poodle Breeder.
Our Involvement in the AKC Dog Shows
One of our hobbies is to be involved in the AKC Dog Shows. We try to always have a dog either preparing for the show ring or competing in the AKC Dog Shows. We believe that healthy competition is a great way to always improve the Abounding Poodle lines as we strive for excellence. Just as a sportsman is always playing against others better than himself to always improve his game, we believe that being involved in the Dog Shows drives us to not be satisfied with just being "average."
The quality of our dogs speaks for itself: it has given us the good reputation that we seek to maintain.
We have added the DNA Type I von Willebrand's Disease (vWD) screening to our lines done by Vetgen. Ten percent (10%) of all Poodles are either carriers or affected with this disease. It is characterized by the abnormally low production of a protein found in the blood called von Willebrand's factor which plays a key role in the complex process of clotting a damaged blood vessel (something similar to Hemophilia).
