Any experience with CKC breeder Dianna Morris

Hello everyone,

In my search for a toy poodle I found a CKC breeder called Dianna Morris her website: http://www.diannas-poodles.com.

I would like to know if anyone tried her in the past , if she is legit before sending her a $500 deposit.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks ..

Also, please GO and PHYSICALLY visit her dogs/pups.
See where the dogs/pups are being raised and bred ... you should absolutely do this before putting any money down. You want to physically see and meet the dogs to see the temperament ect.

Here's a good list of questions to ask the breeder-

A lot of breeders will want to meet you and talk to you as they are very careful as to whom they sell a pup to. They usually have a contract that will say they are not for breeding etc. The contract may include the $500 deposit required but at least you have it in writing. The FB reviews all look good but the last one is a year old. You could send a message to those that left comments on FB and ask are they still happy with their dog. You could also onto the CKC site and see if there is anything there about her. Based on her website and having had a dog in many dog shows she looks like she would be a good breeder. Good luck on your puppy search.

Thanks a lot for taking the time to write here. I did indeed call CKC representatives and they confirm that she is a registered breeder. So , *phew* Hopefully her pups will be great and healthy.

Thank you so much for your helpful tips. I will check the website you have provided. As for the FB page, I have seen it before and I found that the contact number was different than the one posted in the website. It's kinda strange, I know! Anyways, I will try to contact the guys who recommended her and hopefully will get some feedback.

They could be friends of hers. I would want to personally go and check out her operation. Also, I don't think just being a registered breeder with CKC means much.

Most of the breeders specialize in 1 type of dog. Usually the parents of a litter have gone through CKC dog shows and earned enough points to be a champion. This can be an expensive process. When the dog is a champion they can charge higher fees if it is a male and higher prices for the litter from a female. Again no matter how good it looks to you over the internet you need to personally visit the breeder and you interview him/her and they interview. Dog breeders are a unique group of people who care for the animals very much.

Please be aware that puppy mills are also registered breeders. In the purebred world, it is virtually meaningless.

HI. I am also looking at getting a toy poodle from that same breeder. Did you end up buying from her? If so, how was your experience? If not, can you share why? Many thanks Helen
