Truffle spends some of her day playing tag with her friends through the bush.
She loves nothing more than to have a toy and tease her sister with it in a game of keep away.
Truffle is very soft natured and loves being groomed and fawned over.
She is quick and eager to learn to receive praise for her efforts, and wants to be with us.
Truffle is also our biggest prankster and loves to entertain everyone with her antics.
If we have company Truffle fills the role of our Poodle greeter going from person to person
getting cuddles and pats before she settles in on the biggest dog bed available, usually ontop
of Ruby (who of course gets up, as she prefers the couch anyway..)
Truffle is a brilliant poodle and has earned her Rally Obedience titles in no time.
Truffle even earned Total Dog Awards
(earned by accomplishing a performance event and Conformation win, the same day and same show)
~ Beauty and Brains ~ sure describes this girl
Truffle has earned her AKC Obedience title and Rally Titles with 1st Place wins !
Truffle has produced amazing pups that have accomplished their Championships and Performance titles such as:
Reigna and Beau, Duke, Zeppelin, Finnegan, Hank (shaved bald), Bodhi, Chula
and others featured on our Brown page and Facebook page.

We don't just "say" we have Total Dogs
we have the UKC TOTAL DOG AWARDS to prove it !!
