Chocolate Merle Parti Toy Poodle
7 pounds ; 9 inches
5 Years Old ; Birthday 6/28/13
Chocolate Merle Parti Toy Poodle “Dixie Chick” is a sweet, gentle, loving little dog from the south , like me! Her favorite thing in the whole world is to sit in someones (ANYONE’s) lap!!! She is quite light colored herself and has not only the Parti gene, but also the Merle gene. That is quite rare to have both! She is a top quality poodle bred by Kathy Belaire from LA. Dixie is a quiet, mannerly little lady just like the Southern Belle that she is named after. Little Dixie has been my little buddy here with me since she was 8 weeks old.
Dixie’s favorite things, (besides cuddling in someones arms which is #1) are playing games with her friends.
Although little Dixie may be the dainty little lady, she can sure keep up with the big dogs on the trail and have a blast! Yup, those southern gals are hearty!
Sweet Dixie is spayed now and had been planning her retirement summer of 2018 to live with my mother in Florida. Circumstances are different now for my mother. Mom is going to live with my wonderful brother in NC who already has 2 Golden Retrievers so little Dixie is looking for her forever home. She is very well house trained of course. She prefers to use the bathroom outside but will also use a potty pad indoors if needed. She is trained well on & off leash with excellent recall. She is very mannerly, low to medium energy little gal that just wants to be your shadow and in someones lap! She has been my little buddy for a long time & I am looking for a loving forever home for her.
I like to match the right dog with the right owners so they are both happy for many years. That means you will need to come here and visit Dixie and me to see if the match is right. Dixie’s adoption fee is $1,500. She is micro-chipped & up to date on all vaccinations, etc of course. See many more fun pictures of little Dixie in her Photo Album!
A little about the Toy Poodle:
Identical to the Standard and Miniature Poodle except in height, they are a descendant of the Miniature Poodle. The Toy Poodle is a dainty, sensitive little dog who make perfect pets for a less active person who has time to pamper these natural little clowns and be amused by their quaint antics. Well proportioned and squarely built, the Toy Poodle was bred down from the Miniature Poodle. They are an intelligent breed with a delicate disposition and are very easy to train, the easiest of all the Poodles. Toy Poodles are delightful, good natured, and lively dogs. The Poodle makes an excellent family pet who will adapt to any situation and will try anything an owner wants. Toy Poodles are an efficient choice for the owner who wants an obedient dog. They are affectionate with their family, a little wary with strangers, but still accepting of them. They love to be around family and friends, and get along well with other animals and children. They come in any colors, and have very curly, thick fur. Not only do they have an winning personality, but their hypoallergenic coat is non-shedding. (as are all my dog breeds) Toy Poodles are bright, perky little dogs. Responsive, alert, sensitive and eager to please describes this breed.
The Poodle rates very high as a watch-dog. These dogs are highly alert and will let you know if something unusual is happening. Their Learning rate is also Very High. Toy Poodles are very intelligent. Obedience – Very High. Problem Solving – Very High. They are extremely intelligent and very obedient. There are not very many breeds that rate this high in everything. This is why the Poodle has been such a popular breed for so many generations.
This breed is known to have a very long life span of 15 to 17 years.
