Poodle Owners - please share your puppy buying experiences with us with our new visitors! The Testimonial Section of the website allows you to upload your Feedback directly onto the website, but does not allow photos.
Got photos to share? The Feedback Section allows for both photos and longer emails/letters - but you need to email them to me first, for me to upload onto the website for you.
Visitors be sure to visit both pages to see what our Puppy Owners have to say and see pics of the poodle kids at their new homes...
Love what you see but the time is not right, or your preferred baby just got snapped up by someone else???
Subscribe to our website - this will put you on my update list for new litters, announcements and the occasional special sale or price reduction for that "last pup from a litter" that is not mentioned on the website!
No strings attached, your information will not be sold, when you are no longer looking - simply unsubscribe.
How much deposit is required to reserve a pup?
Deposit is usually 50% of the purchase price and are generally not refundable unless something is wrong with the pup. Please go to the Deposit Page to have a look at a sample contract and to familiarize yourself with it before reserving a pup!
There is a pup on your website that says "Pending". What does that mean - is it sold?
Pups listings that say "Pending" or "On Hold" usually have either a deposit in the mail [snail mail] and I will need to make time allowance for that payment to reach me, or I have a definite pick-up scheduled within the next few days without a deposit. About 90% of the time, that pup will be reserved or sold within a few days, but every once in a while there will be a no-show or cancellation. Feel free to ask or request an update on this pup to double check on availability. Pups that say "Reserved" have a deposit received and are no longer available - and no - I won't sell a pup that has a deposit to another person, even if you offer me extra money for it.
Do you take checks?
Sorry no more personal or bank checks. Cash only at time of pick-up for the remainder of your balance or the full purchase price for a pup ready to go. Deposits and Installment Payments may be made via Paypal, Mobile Phone Paypal, US Postal Money Orders, NetSpend and Only1 Reload Packs, as well as Moneygram [Walmart] or Western Union. For more detailed info on payments, pls go to the Payment Page.
Can I make several smaller payments instead of one or two big ones?
Payment Plans are generally available on pups under 5 weeks of age - the amounts and frequency of payments depend on the purchase price and the age of the pup. If you want to do this, the sooner you reserve your pup, the more time you will have for smaller installments! If you need more time than that, ask me about upcoming or planned litters - I can give you an idea when we have new babies and you can make as many small payments in advance that you are comfortable with, and then choose from a new litter once they arrive.
Pick-Up, Delivery or Meeting, Shipping.
Use this zipcode to pull up directions to Lyons GA, just outside of Vidalia . If you are majorly from out of the area or out of state and are driving to pick up, I will gladly offer as usual to meet you along the I 16, I 95 or I 75 corridor = halfways or oneway up to 100 miles for me. I need you to work with me on scheduling though, as I work most weekends. During the week is always easier for me, as I can set my own schedule then. I have an entire page devoted to this information - please click here for more info!
Are your puppies AKC registered?
Lately I get this question quite often - so I rewrote that section on my website and made a separate page for it - look for the answers here.
One of the not so pretty things about many light colored poodles are tear stains. While not all white and light colored poodles get them [and those furkids are a treasure and so easy to maintain and keep looking nice], if you have one that does get tearstains - it can be a losing battle or require constant maintenance and upkeep to keep looking good.
Tearstains are caused by a number of things - partially genetic [not much you can do about that part] but also environmental, and you can make simple changes that may effect the appearance of your pet.
#1 Keeping the face trimmed short around the eyes goes a long way in preventing eye irritations from hair that constantly gets into the dogs eyes.
#2 On a light colored dog wash the face once a day with a wet wash cloth - for some dogs it is as simple as that. Use plain water, no soap, but you can also use witch hazel which is non irritating when it gets into the eye. Remove dust and grit from the eyes, wipe the nose and muzzle, massage the gums and rub over the teeth - this alone can make a considerable difference in the appearance of your dog.
If you have a pup or dog that is prone to severe tearstaining, you should also look at a number of other things to see if you can minimize eye irritation that causes excess tearing.
There are bunches of things out there, that [mostly don't] work - more or less.
Wipes, pads, eye washes, bleaches, concealers, powders, etc etc.
They all require religious application, washing, wiping [and often irritating the skin around the eyes, causing more tearing and consequently more staining. I've tried some of them over the years for those two of my white girls that tend to get tear stains, and thrown my hands in the air and resigned myself to having faces with rust colored streaks.
Well - there actually is one item I know about, that actually does reliably work.
In the long run. There is no magic involved, and you need to outgrow the old hair - depending on the breed that may take as little as 2-3 weeks [shaved poodle faces] up to several months until the hair gets clipped away during routine grooming.
It is expensive but it works. It's effortless to apply - just sprinkle over the food. It has a corny name - but then again - maybe not, LOL. Yes - we are talking about
Click on their name to go directly to their website for more detailed information, and you can also order their product directly from their website.
Or if you want to help us here out - order through the Amazon link below [listed on amazon.com for considerably less than on their official website!!!]. On Amazon look for the seller named "Angels' Eyes" - I believe this is actually the company themselves - they always have the best prices available there and about half of what they sell for on their website!!!
Here is the link to a comprehensive Tear Stain Product Review I found online during some related research, well worth looking into as well. Click here to leave our website to look at that review!

Q. What is Angels' Eyes®?
A. Angels' Eyes is a product that may help eliminate unsightly tear stains. Tear stains are caused from an overflow of tears (epiphora). The reddish brown color in the stains is from Porphyrin pigments (iron/magnesium) in the stains.
Q. How does Angels' Eyes® work?
A. Angels’ Eyes® works to prevent tear staining by tying up circulating porphyrins. A porphyrin is a compound that reacts with light to produce a reddish brown stain to the medial canthus. The active ingredient in Angels' Eyes®, Tylosin as Tartrate, will prevent your dog from contracting Ptyrosporin (Red Yeast) and bacterial infections which causes excess tearing and staining. Tylosin binds with Porphyrin pigments and prevents them from binding with the animal’s hair.
Q. What are the ingredients in Angels' Eyes®?
A. Angels' Eyes is wheat and dye free, it's made of 100% pure beef liver, tylosin as tartrate.
There are 3 formulas: Beef Liver, Chicken Liver and Sweet Potato.
Q. What's the difference between Angels' Eyes® and all the other products on the market?
A. All other products mask or have artificial food coloring, artificial food additives and preservatives, corn, wheat or soy which can cause the stains to reappear worse than before. Angels' Eyes® does not require rubbing or any other difficult maintenance. With Angels' Eyes® you will not need to use bleach, peroxide or any other topical product that may cause allergies and irritations. Many topical products do not list their ingredients.
Q. How long does it take to see the results?
A. Anywhere from 3 to 5 weeks. It depends on the growth of your dog’s or cat’s coat. Continue to trim off the stained coat and the new coat will grow clear of stains. For optimal results Angels' Eyes® must be used daily as suggested.
