Rhett came to us from Sapphire Poodles in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountain region of Virginia. We are blessed to be co-owners of this kind-hearted boy!

From his breeder: Rhett’s first conformation show was on September 17th, 2021 . He was 7 months 10 days old. Less than a month later, on October 10 he was a Grand Champion at the age of 8 months, and after only 3 weekends of shows. He really sailed through those two conformation titles.  He loves to show.  I’m very proud of this boy.  

  • UKC Grand Champion at 8 months of age
  • Best of Breed winner at 8 months
  • Group placement at 8 months
  • AKC CGC and CGCA title
  • AKC Trick Novice title
  • UKC SPOT-ON title

Rhett is the sweetest boy ever and he gives the best hugs! He was made to give love and gets along with everybody – cats, dogs, people! Rhett loves tug toys and playing tug, he also likes balls – especially tennis balls!

Rhett is currently training in nose work and becoming a therapy dog. He is already showing us what a quick learner he is, and how much he wants to please! He earned his BCAT in FastCAT in two weekends and attended a four day scent workshop. Our plans are to try Rhett in Rally, Agility and Precision Coursing and anything else available to see what he likes.  We also want to try dock diving now that he has a short trim!
