Welcome to Darcon Toy Poodles, located in Eastern South Carolina, near Myrtle Beach. Situated on three country acres is where we share our home with various pets, chickens, goats, rabbits and a mini horse. My husband enjoys gardening and taking care of the animals. He also enjoys raising plants and vegetables in his greenhouse. You can find me inside taking care of puppies! I am home most of the time and enjoy the Toy Poodle puppies so much. They are precious. My first “breed” was the Yorkshire Terrier, but after the loss of one over 20 years ago, I decided to purchase my first Toy Poodle puppy and have loved the breed ever since.
I am a responsible breeder of quality Toy Poodles, breeding for my next show Toy Poodle prospect or perfect pet. I am very concerned about the health issues that plague the Toy Poodle breed. Most are hereditary, and can be prevented with careful breeding practices. Currently I do genetic testing for PRCD PRA eye disease through Optigen Lab in NY. This DNA test will tell if the dog is clear of the disease, a carrier for the disease, or is affected with the disease. You can visit www.Optigen.com for more information.
Select breeding practices ensure I am not breeding inherited problems. All of my Toy Poodles are checked for sound structure, (good knees and hips), sweet temperaments and overall health. I work closely with my veterinarian to make sure my Toy Poodles have what they need to stay healthy. I am available to answer questions you may have concerning Toy Poodles.
It is a fact that a healthy Toy Poodle comes from quality parents and ancestors. All of our Toy Poodles are Champions, Champion sired, or have a nice Champion pedigree. Our Toy Poodles are AKC registered (American Kennel Club). We breed white, black, and red, and occasionally have brown and silver. If we don’t have what you are looking for in a Toy Poodle, we have friends that may have puppies available.
People will often say they are not looking for a “show dog” as they are just wanting a “pet”. A well-bred Toy Poodle will give you many years of companionship without all the health problems of a poorly bred Poodle. Usually a good, quality pet Toy Poodle can be bought from a reputable breeder for about the same price (or less) than what you will pay in a pet shop, the difference being you don’t know anything about the pet shop puppy but the breeder will have all the information and the parents of the breeder’s puppy.
I hope you will enjoy my dogs as much as I have. If you have any questions please send me an E-Mail.
