chosen dogs standard poodles

Chosen Dogs breed and sponsor the showing of the Standard variety of Poodle in AKC sanctioned Conformation dog shows. My dogs have prospered under the presentation of Kim Russell, Allan Chambers, and Ann Rairigh. They have had success in American Kennel Club Regional and National Poodle Breed Specialty and All Breed Shows.

My involvement with the Standard Poodle breed began with the acquisition of Penndragon Independence from Kim and Rick Bates in July 2004. Ch. Penndragon Independence (Indy) 7-4-2004 is a lovely refined dog who represents the best of the breed. Indy completed his Championship in the fall of 2005 from the 12 – 18 month class. Indy was campaigned as a “Special” by Kim Russell through 2006. He finished his career ranked 8th in the U.S.. He is now retired from the show ring and has sired several AKC Champions.

Ch. Litilann’s Chosen Showstopper (Aubrey) 6-28-2006 was acquired from Litilann’s Kennels in September of 2006. Aubrey is a beautiful refined black bitch with a gentle temperament. She came from a litter that produced four female Champions. Kim Russell showed her to her AKC Championship. Allan Chambers campaigned Aubrey as his "Special" throughout the balance of 2008. Under Kim and Allan’s guidance Aubrey won several significant Poodle Specialty and Non Sporting Group victories.

On April 30, 2009 Aubrey and Ch McKay’s Fast and Furious “Diesel” produced a lovely black daughter, Chosen Celebrity "Charlie". Diesel, owned by Dale Sheraton, is a descendent of the great Wessex Celebration and King's Champagne Taste. Charlie completed her Championship while still in the 6 – 12 month puppy class. We are very proud of her 2nd place ribbon in a very competitive 2010 Bred By Exhibitor Class at the Poodle Club of America competition.

Ch. Litilaan’s Paray Chosen Heroine (Scarlet) 12-16-2006, a spirited, elegant white female with lovely movement was acquired from Litilann’s Kennels in August of 2007. Early in her career Scarlet was successfully presented by Kim Russell. In 2009 under Ann Rairigh’s guidance Scarlet completed her Championship credential and was led to the 2nd place Award in the 2009 PCA Open Bitch Class. In 2010 Scarlet was bred to Patty Moulthrop's SBIS, BIS Ch Blue Skies' Aris Uncloudy Day (Spenser). The litter of 8, comprised of 5 Males and 3 Females, arrived March 25, 2010. Scarlet’s daughter from this litter CH Chosen That’s Amore (Celia), completed her AKC Championship credential under skillful handling of Ann Rairigh in December of 2011.

I invite those with an interest in acquiring an outstanding Standard Poodle puppy from Chosen Dogs to contact me to discuss reserving a puppy.  Puppies from Chosen Dogs have excellent temperment, conformation, movement and attitude. Each dog within the breeding program has participated in a comprehensive series of genetic tests to minimize the potential of genetic defects or health issues. The results of these genetic tests are available for your review at A puppy can be reserved but will not sold until it is old enough to be graded by an independent breed expert. A written contract is used to govern the terms of sale and to protect the puppy, the new owner, and Chosen Dogs. The new owner is expected to abide with all the covenants of the agreement.  All companion puppies are sold under spay/neuter agreement and with limited registration. Information pertaining to the health testing and foster program is available through the highlighted links.
