I am thrilled to introduce you to Patrick!
My long awaited dream of adding a very high quality solid dark red boy to our family came true! I had been looking for YEARS, literally, for a red of the highest quality, with black points, an even temperament and from a completely health tested background. I was looking for the total package, because as a breeder I know temperament, complete health testing and good conformation all do matter. I did not settle, and I am so very glad that I didn't and I waited for Patrick.
This sweet boy has a personality that is larger than life! If you follow my Facebook or Instagram pages, you will see him frequently because his cuteness just demands to be photographed. He is outgoing, confident, fun loving and is adored by our entire family. All three girls really love playing with Patrick, especially Gilda. The two of them can frequently be found playing tug-o-war with a rope toy, or napping together in a dog bed. Farrah and Georgia Peach both really love him too, but Patrick and Gilda have become quite a pair.
Patrick started AKC STAR Puppy class and he passed with flying colors. Patrick then went on to earn BOTH his CGC (AKC's Canine Good Citizen) title and his TKN (AKC's Novice Trick) title at just 6 1/2 months old! Patrick also earned AKC's Canine Good Citizen Community Canine title (CGCA) at just nine months old. He's a very "showy" dog. Besides his beautiful color, he's got a bouncy gait with wonderful movement and reach. We are currently enrolled in a Therapy Dog certification class through Therapy Dogs International. Following that my plan is do some volunteer work in our community.
Everywhere we go people comment on this boy, and want to see him. Patrick's happy-go-lucky personality is simply infectious. I can't wait to see what the future will hold with this little sweetheart! Patrick is genetically clear of disease through Embark, and has completed OFA Hip and Elbow prelims with hips and elbows both rated as "Good", as well as wonderful PennHip testing.results at the top 90% of standard poodles.
