We researched a lot! It was important to us to make sure we were getting a puppy with a good pedigree because then we hope to have temperament that is consistent with poodles. So we interviewed many breeders (even lost a small deposit-there are so many unethical breeders and puppy mills out there), found out how many litters they had a year, checked on health testing for both parents both of his parents(were glad that both of his parents are grand champions), kept the puppy with the mom at least eight weeks (or more) and was well socialized....after months of searching we finally found a breeder the next state over from us with one puppy left from current litter. Hubby is so patient with me (and loves me lots) so he agreed to go check the puppy out! The day came when we were going to meet the puppy and his mom...we loaded the kids up in the van with lots of snacks and movies and drove 4 1/2 hours to the breeder (who is a vet also). The puppy seemed to have the temperament that we were looking for and his mom was spot on what we were looking for...Blessing #5 wanted to take the mom home! We came home with our new friend that day!
