Current and Rising Stars

GCHB Rainbow’s Gold Rush
“Arionna” has shined brightly right from the start!

I knew she was special from the moment Connie Halcom of Rainbow Toy Poodles entrusted her in my care. I was smitten by her golden locks and temperament immediately!

Bred by Connie Halcom of Rainbow Toy Poodles and co-owned with Bruce Swift of Kotu Poodles we are delighted with the overall quality and showy spirit of this beautiful Apricot Toy Poodle.

At just under 10″ she is the perfect package. Balanced and moderate, with appropriate body for her size, excellent rib spring, good coat, nice feet, lovely top line and a showy temperament. “Arionna” demands to be seen, most notably in the Group Ring where she enjoyed the buzz and excitement of her fans and always gave fully when asked of her.

“Arionna” is the first Bronze Grand Champion produced by Rainbow Toy Poodles and the first Bronze Grand Champion and Toy Poodle to reside at Kotu.

“Arionna” came of age to show just after the start of Covid. Finishing her AKC Championship with very limited showing in just four weekends in the fall of 2020!

In the fall of 2021 “Arionna” was presented as a Special with limited showing and very quickly earned her GCH and Bronze championship titles.

In total she was awarded 75 awards including:

(44) Best of Variety Awards
(1) Group 1- Judge John Walsh
(1) Group 2 – Judge Joey Brewster
(2) Group 3 – Judge Mrs. Pamela B. Peat, Judge Mrs. Molly Martin
(1) Group 4 – Judge Johnny Shoemaker
(1) Best Puppy in Show

“Arionna” is currently ranked the #9 Toy Poodle All-Breed and is ranked 19th Toy Poodle in Breed. (January 1, 2022 – September 30, 2022)

We couldn’t be more pleased with this showy little Apricot girl and her many accomplishments and I am most grateful to Rainbow Toy Poodles for sharing her with me

Updated September 21, 2023

We will have more puppies in the coming months closer to Christmas time. If one becomes available, I will post it here.

I do not breed for teacups. There are too many problems in this size of dog. We get them occasionally but not often. When we do get them, they come from sturdy stock with fewer problems.

Please be patient with me getting back to you. I receive so many requests and inquiries that it takes time to respond. I am not a big breeder. I breed for QUALITY not quantity.  Most of my adult dogs are PRA clear or come from PRA-clear parentage.
