Our Past Puppies

About Us...

     We are a retired Navy Seabee family. Bob retired in 2001 from U.S. Navy Seabees! "Can Do"  We have lived all over the United States We enjoy traveling, fishing, hunting and spending time with our grand children. We met well over 35 years ago.  We finally found a spark in early 1992 and made it an official relationship in June of 1992. We married in November of 1993.  We will celebrate 30 years of marriage in November 2023!

  We lived and bred poodles and Maltipoos in South West Michigan for 13 years.  We are longtime residents of Michigan prior to his military career. We now live in Central Florida as of May 2019, where we plan to retire at some point in the future. We do travel back and forth to Michigan, so if you are from Michigan and want to get a puppy from us, please give us a call. 

   I have been involved in breeding since I was very young.  My parents were breeders of Doberman's and I grew up around dogs and other animals.  As I got older and ventured out into the world, I missed my animals, but I also developed a horrible allergy to just about everything, including pet dander.  That is when I discovered my love for the Toy Poodle and the Maltese and that is what started our breeding of toy poodles and maltipoos.   I truly love the toy poodle and I love offering the Maltipoo.  We are called Red Toy Poodles, but we also have many other colors! We now breed a few litters of shihpoos.

ShihPoo Colors Change

A good rule of thumb when choosing a Shih Tzu puppy is never to base your decision on color. That's because the breed is well known for changing coat colors as he enters adulthood. In fact, by the time your Shih Tzu celebrates his first birthday, he may be a completely different color than he was when you brought him home.

For example, a puppy that has gold hair at birth may turn orange and one that is blue at birth can turn gray by his first birthday—and those born black may lighten over time. The only coat color that remains true is the black-and-white combination.

What accounts for these shifts in shade? Very simply, it's a matter of genetics. Two distinct genes determine whether a Shih Tzu's coat will lighten or gray over time—and what his ultimate color will be.

Fading: If a Shih Tzu carries the "G" gene, his coat will fade as he gets older. You will notice fading in puppies as young as a month old. Fading will continue until the dog reaches his first birthday.

Graying: If a dog carries the Chinchilla gene (CH series) he is likely to change colors as well, but not in the same way as fading. Instead, the dog's coat will turn a rich, silver color.

As with the Shihpoo, Poodles and Maltipoos can also change their colors as they age. Color is not guaranteed!
