Can.Champion Finnesse Pretty In Pink is our pride & joy.

After over 25 years experience, she is our first intervariety poodle resulting from a mating between Can.Champion Alwaro Brown Bajgastop (Czech Imp.) and Baldemar Impulse (Serb. Imp.).  She was shown entirely by myself and is a group placing, multi Best of Breed over Champion winner.  Pippa is her call name and she has been also an exceptional brood bitch.  She is now spayed & retired. Her legacy remains with us in her offspring and their offspring.

Size Matters

toy: 10" or under

miniature: 10-15"

standard over: 15" (no maximum)

FCI European

toy: 24-28cm

dwarf: 28-35cm

(moyen) medium: 35-45cm

standard: 45-60cm

We strive for smaller standards that do not exceed 45 pounds and 24" at the withers. This is more in-line with the FCI standard.  We also love the even smaller ones who are at the top end of moyen in FCI around 17-18" at the withers & 30-35 lbs.

Welcome to Finnesse Poodles!

 We are over a quarter century old now and are focusing on an all brown line of genetically diverse moderate and small sized standard poodles.  Although the Canadian Kennel Club separates poodles into three varieties for show purposes the FCI (Fédération Cynologique Internationale) recognizes four varieties of poodles;

toy: 24-28cm

dwarf: 28-35cm

(moyen) medium: 35-45cm

standard: 45-60cm

The poodle however, is one breed and is the national breed of France with origins throughout Central and Eastern Europe.

Finnesse Poodles embraces all sizes of poodles which according to international registries conform to the same standard with only one exception being the size. We have a particular interest in smaller standard poodles.  We use unique bloodlines, diversification, and extensive health testing that incorporate DNA and Diversity Genetics through University of California, Davis, (Optigen & VetGen), and COI coefficient pedigree analysis, and other veterinary diagnostics such as ophthalmology, radiology, and blood work when planning a litter.

We produce quality, not quantity and our puppies are available by reservation to approved homes for companionship, performance, and conformation.  Adoptions are based on the suitability of fit of the individual puppy to the prospective new owner. 

Conformation remains a primary focus for us and our poodles are very outgoing. Over the years we have learned that history, pedigree, and temperament are key factors in the exceptional poodle, but we don't stop there. We are dedicated to incorporating different bloodlines by blending and diversifying our gene pool in the unique ways aimed ultimately at improving overall health in areas that currently cannot be easily assessed through currently available scientific methods.
