Tx Poodle Breeder that is a small family operation ran by us, Max and Sharon Hoffman.  We are located NW of the Dallas-FtWorth-Denton area.  If you're familiar with this area, we are conveniently close to the new Texas Motor Speedway off of I-35W between Ft. Worth and Denton.  We specialize in red poodles as well as phantoms, partis and other colors.
   We take great pride in raising our toy babies with lots of socialization... not only with us, but with the occasional visits from relatives, other babies in our nursery, and their moms.  They are picked up and handled from the time they are born until they go to their new adoptive family.
   We have a variety of colors including red, chocolate, cream, black, apricot, sable, phantom and parti in our poodles.  Our poo sizes range from the very tiny ones, referred to as t-cups, to the larger toys or oversize toys due to height only.  Rarely are our puppies over 10#s as adults.
   Also we do not sell our tiny ones to families with children under 10 yrs. of age. This is unfair to the child as they aren't old enough to understand, and also it isn't fair to the puppy being constantly handled.  We do not broker our puppies, attend trade days with them or flea markets.  Their health is too important to us to risk them being exposed to problems from those type of elements.  We would also like to mention that we do not offer stud service on our males for numerous reasons.

   
PRICES: We do not normally price our puppies until they are 4-5 wks. old unless we are fairly confident based on prior litters to the approximate adult size as no breeder can this.  Our usual price for toys start @ $600-700 for a male and go up to $1800 depending on the puppy's age, color & sex.  These are for limited registration.  Due to instances in the past dealing with other breeders, we DO NOT give breeding rights...so please do not ask.

  
DEPOSITS/PMTS: We require a $300 per puppy NON REFUNDABLE deposit to reserve a puppy.  PLEASE MAKE ALL PAYMENTS PAYABLE TO SHARON HOFFMAN.  We accept personal checks on deposits only, not on balances.  On balances, we will accept Cashier's Checks, Money Orders, Western Union, Money Grams or Cash.  If mailing payments, please send Priority Mail and furnish us with a confirmation/tracking number. Then we know the funds are on the way and will hold the puppy for two (2) days. Balances are due by 7 wks. on tiny toys & toy sizes.  Teacups are due by 10 wks. ***IF BALANCES ARE NOT MADE ON TIME, A PUPPY WILL BE REPOSTED DUE TO NON-PAYMENT.  The deposit is non-refundable should this occur.*** We do not make shipping arrangements until payment is paid in full on a puppy. So don't expect to pay one day and the puppy be shipped out the next day. Teacup size puppies as they are usually kept until 12 wks. of age, due to the small size.  Other sizes are usually kept until 8- 9 weeks of age unless upon our vet's opinion, it is to the puppy's interest to wait on shipping to a new home.  Please be responsible and do not ask us to hold a puppy past time for her/him to leave.  They need to be in their permanent home when we feel that they are ready for their move.

   
SHIPPING: SORRY WE NO LONGER SHIP OUR PUPPIES DUE TO MORE GOVERNMENT REGULATIONS THAT HAVE BEEN ENACTED.

   AKC INSPECTION: We would like for everyone to know that since the first time we were inspected by Mr. Robert Andrew James of AKC, we were complimented on our facility as well as the behavior of our Poodle adults and babies. He reported that he could tell the care and love we had for them because it showed in their appearance, personalities and general well-being.  We are in compliance with AKC's guidelines and have received acceptable in all aspects in every inspection.  You are either rated as acceptable or unacceptable.  There are no other areas that you can be rated. Update...we have been inspected yearly and always are acceptable in our inspection.

   
HEALTH CONTRACT: We offer a year health contract on all of our puppies from their date of birth.  This must be on file with us prior to a puppy leaving whether it is picked up or shipped to you.  Please click here to view our contract.  You must print it, mail it or fax it but remember it is your responsibility to complete it for our files.

   
WEIGHT CHARTWe try very hard to give you an accurate size of the puppy that you are interested in adopting, however, no one can guarantee the size unless it is an older puppy.  The weight chart that we use may be viewed by clicking here as just an example of adult weights.



   We reserve the right to decline selling a puppy to an individual whom we do not feel would be an acceptable home for one of our toy babies.  Brokers, Puppy Mills or non-responsible breeders need not inquire.  As we stated before, a lot of
LOVE, ATTENTION and CARE goes into raising a well adjusted, socialized and loving baby.
