Portia from San Diego, Ca Writes:
When I first met Phoebe, she was only three weeks old. It was love at first sight. Phoebe is an incredibly loving poodle. Even as a pup, she was curious and alert. She adapted immediately to her new environment when she was old enough for us to bring her home. She was easy to house train and quickly found the doggy door. Her best friend is our six year old poodle, Sabine, and she plays nicely with other animals she meets. Phoebe is without a doubt a show-stopper. When we are out walking with her, people stop their cars to tell us how beautiful she is. She, in my opinion, could easily outshine the dogs at Westminster. Her temperament is gentle and she is happiest when close to her humans. Although Phoebe shows absolutely no signs of aggression, she is a good alarm dog. Phoebe is smart, playful, funny and a wonderful loving addition to our clan. We are very fortunate to have one of Barbie’s Standard Poodle puppies, and Phoebe is the perfect dog for us.

Not even going to try - because it would be Ditto Ditto Ditto to describe our precious and lovable - loving Phoebe. Our Standard Poodle puppy turns heads and stops traffic on each walk - or even in the car! Like Maggie - Phoebe stays in the lamb cut and is even more stunning when just back from the Groomers! Her coat is fabulous and again like Maggie - Phoebe has been a very healthy Standard Poodle. She plays well with others - all kinds of others ….especially her pal Sabine, our other Standard Poodle who is six. What can I say other than if the Standard Poodle puppy is from Barbie's Poodle Palace it will be FABULOUS!
Dana from New York Writes:
The two Standard Poodle puppies, Benny and Jynx, that we bought from you are the happiest healthiest dogs. Here, in these pictures, they are about one year old. You can see the confirmation is spot on. I highly recommend your breeding program as their temperament is so friendly. These Standard Poodle puppies are extremely trainable and intelligent. They are not anxious. They are angels and gentle around children. I can't express in words just how terrific these two dogs are. I dare say they are perfect! Please feel free to contact me and I'm happy to talk to any of your prospective clients about my dogs. Thanks Barbie!

Here are some pix of Maggie. None are particularly recent (and the two head shots were taken not long after we got her). But she was beautiful then and is beautiful now. She's a head-turner, even if most people have never seen a red Standard Poodle and so think she's some kind of "doodle." And, no fancy haircuts for Maggie. As you can see, she LOVES the ocean. In fact, I had her at the beach today and she was actually leaping over waves positively lab-like trying and reach me.
What can we say about Maggie that we haven't already told you.
She's a fabulous, gentle, incredibly lovable, intelligent and sometimes amusingly or, depending on the situation, frustratingly (sorry, but we have to be honest) stubborn puppy, with oodles of love and not a nasty bone in her body. She has an exceptionally soft mouth and we've actually never once heard her growl, and so we have absolutely no hesitation in letting her play with small children, other dogs and our cats (not chickens, though - she seems to think they are chew toys, a habit we need to break her of).
She's very playful and athletic - loves to play tug of war, keep-away, fetch and rough-house with her best friend, Motor the cat - but, at the same time, her essential disposition is exceedingly even and placid and she's quite independent (almost cat-like in some respects) - not at all hyper or clingy or in need of constant attention. Unquestionably, her outstanding temperament is in large part testament to the love and socialization she received early on from you.
She's also been very healthy, experiencing no illnesses of any kind. Indeed, a couple of months ago she was playing near some barbed wire and became hooked and tore up her left foreleg pretty badly at the elbow. The doctor at the emergency hospital we took her to failed to properly clean out the wound before suturing it and a month later she required surgery to remove large chunks of gravel and road base from her joint and the surrounding tissue. When the surgeon saw the amount and size of the debris that needed to be removed, he marveled at her constitution and the fact that she showed absolutely no sign of infection and what could have been a very serious situation seems to have been entirely averted.Bottom line, we couldn't be happier or love Maggie more, and we'd be pleased to elaborate on the above or to introduce Maggie to anyone seriously considering one of your Standard Poodle puppies.
