Hi,My mom lost her poodle

Hi,
My mom lost her poodle and was totally devastated by the loss. I was looking online to get her another puppy and I came across Becky‘s site. I reached out to Becky for the possibility of a new poodle and as we got to talking she recommended we adopt, one of her four year old, female poodles. She listened to our story and needs so well. We “thought” a puppy is what we wanted but Becky brought some important details to light for our consideration. First, my mom is 65. Training a puppy is a lot of work. Also, all the money needed for a puppy. My mom wanted a boy since thats all she ever had but Becky had an adorable 4yr old female that she was going to be rehoming. She offered her to my mom for discount! She cared about my mom and could tell she was literally heart broken and wanted to help. All we paid for was her dental and spayed which she gave us her vet discount. We drove 3 hours to pick up our new fur baby. My mom has been having a lot of health issues this past year and her fur baby has been a blessing. This lil girl is so sweet tempered and just loves to be loved which has helped heal my moms heart and gives her a reason to get up every day. We all love her and we have an amazing new family member that is perfect for us all because of Beckys generosity and kindness. We are forever GRATEFUL!

Becky and her family are ethical and responsible breeders who provided us with a beautiful and healthy havapoo puppy in 2015. We personally visited their home to pick up our puppy, and having seen first hand some not so stellar conditions at other havapoo breeders, I have no hesitation giving my highest recommendation for Prides Poodles. They are prompt with communication and make themselves available for any questions, much to our comfort as first time dog buyers. The puppies are raised inside of Becky’s home by a loving family and are well socialized given that there are other pets and grandchildren to play with the puppies. My wife and I could tell that by the look on Becky’s face when we were leaving with our puppy, they are raised in a truly loving environment. We have had no health or behavioral issues. Our dog is a happy, healthy, beautiful addition to our family, and I would encourage anyone to buy a puppy from Prides Poodles.

Becky- as always, feel free to provide my contact information to anyone asking for a reference.

Best, Evan

Hi Becky,

This is Lulu. I adopted from you a female black poodle born on 8/22/13, parents are Pukoko and Mojo.

I’m way over due wanting to send you some pictures like I promised but it became too many snap shots, too cute and unable to decide which to send. This season is a perfect time to send some photos of our girl, we named DaisyMae, posing with my other two 14 y/o black toy poodle (Chiqui (Grayish / alopecia from old age) and Peppi (slight darker with gray whiskers).

I want to thank you for the care and love you gave our DaisyMae. She reflects your dedication. She is very alert, very attentive, looks straight at your eyes making an intimate connection. She has no fear, yet she is very respectful and friendly.

At home I groom, dog sit and also do behavior modification. My Chiqui used to be my right hand when I worked with other dogs. He knew how to ease an anxious dog and he led by example; but this past March Chiqui had a knee injury and also old age has limited him to do what he loves to do but he still is a gentle role model for DaisyMae. When I’m not around she goes to Chiqui for comfort and she loves to play with Peppi.

DaisyMae is filling Chiqui’s shoes in helping other dogs. I believe she will even be better at it because she is starting early. Her sensitivity has helped shy dogs to dare to play and enjoy it. She has also helped dogs that are anti-social; and they begin to emulate her energy. It’s amazing watching her study the other dogs and figure out the best way to help that dog to learn to enjoy life and trust the handler. She welcomes all dogs to play with her and adapts to their level of play; She even brings toys to them and runs to bring a similar toy & likes showing them how to shake their toys. If that toy doesn’t do it, she’ll bring another one. She also welcomes humans to play by bringing them a ball and putting it at their feet and stepping back. She loves fetch and catch in the air. To me, she’s a gift from heaven and you were a huge part of that blessing.

For years Chiqui and Peppi were my companions. They are so well behaved that I would even take them to church with me and no one even knew I had them. Now, I’m conditioning DaisyMae and she is doing so well that I take her with me — even grocery shopping and no one knows she’s in my doggy travel backpack (I think you saw the backpack). Since Chiqui and Peppi brought me peace in my outings, I decided to register DaisyMae to make it legal for her to be with me anywhere (except burn units in hospitals and surgery rooms). I take her once a month to the library, they have a program that kids read to dogs and she loves it. She’s also one of the favorites. In January I’m planning to register her to do visits with hospice, elderly and children.

After 4wks old bonding stage with humans is essential and You gave her the foundation with so much love that she still reflects the trust she learned with you and I want to thank you for that dedication.

I wanted to take a

I wanted to take a moment to express how much I LOVE my new Havapoo puppy that I got from Pride’s Puppies last October 2023! I named her “Nova-Bella.” My entire experience with Becky Pride in getting Nova-Bella has been amazing! Becky truly is a dog lover, and meeting her and my puppy for the first time was so pleasurable and beneficial to me as a new dog-mom. Becky’s gentle and attentive care for all of her puppies and dogs is very apparent the minute you walk into her place! You can immediately tell that she loves all her animals and has made the best, safest, and most loving “home” for them all until they are able to go to their forever home.

After getting Nova-Bella, I had a ton of questions, and Becky was patient and so great in answering them all, even offering me suggestions as to how I could ensure that Nova-Bella would be a happy, healthy puppy in her new home. I found that getting my puppy from Becky a most positive experience, and because she takes such good care of all of her animals, I knew I was getting a very healthy, well-treated, content puppy. Unlike an animal you might buy from a pet shop or adopt from a shelter, I knew the puppy I was getting had been cared for with love, fed the best food, and was in excellent health. Interestingly, I happened to go back to Becky’s website shortly AFTER I brought Nova-Bella home and there was a video I had turned on to watch with Becky talking in the background. The very instant Nova-Bella heard Becky’s voice on the video, she jumped up and down with excitement and joy! She obviously remembered Becky! What better testimony about Becky can than be than from Nova-Bella herself! Seeing Nova’s reaction to hearing Becky’s voice showed me just how much the puppies are bonded to her because of how well she cares for them, plays with them, and loves them until they leave her to go to their new home! I cannot recommend a better place to get a new puppy than Becky Pride’s Puppies! If I ever get another puppy in the future, I’d contact Becky and go directly to Pride’s Puppies! I encourage others to do the same!!

Stella Mae, our Havapoo born

Stella Mae, our Havapoo born 12/11/21 is the light of our lives! We lost our Daisy in 2019 and we’re reluctant to love a pup again. That is until Becky and her puppies stole our hearts. The timing of acquiring a little Stella may could not have been better and all the signs pointed to Becky and her litter of Havapoos. From the minute we walked into Becky‘s house to see the litter at four weeks, our hearts felt completely at ease with the care and love all her puppies and their parents are given. Becky wants only the best for her litters and loves on them so sweetly, and giving them the best of everything from accommodations to food to vitamins and tender loving care, we knew we were getting our puppy from one of the nations top breeders! The love we have for Stella and the respect we have for Becky has us already thinking about another one. Stella came to us with such a wonderful disposition and you could tell she had been taught certain things from the very beginning! This particular litter had many different colorings and we just love Stella‘s blue merle coloring. She is complemented on it all the time. Currently she is five months old and thriving! She is so smart, so well behaved and just loves life! Trust me when he say I did my research on who to get a Havapoo from and I can tell you with 110% authenticity Becky is your breeder! She will make sure that you have all the things you need and knowledge to take great care of your new family member. She wants nothing but love and the best of care for her puppies and we could not appreciate that more! I’ve already given her name out to several people and if I could shout it from the rooftops I would! Becky is the best and she gave us one of the most precious gifts, our sweet Stella Mae!

I had given up on

I had given up on finding a toy poodle that was out of the puppy stage. At my last online attempt, I came across Becky’s site and fell in love with Prince right away. It took some work to get him to Canada at that time, but Becky worked with me to bring him safely here. Prince is the most phenomenal dog I have ever known. He is devoted, gorgeous, protective, intuitive, sweet and quiet and he is a genius among dogs. He has also literally saved our broken hearts after a devastating personal loss. We can’t imagine life without him and will be forever grateful to Becky for our little angel.

My husband and I decided to adopt a poodle from Prides Poodles back in 2012. We brought him home March 23, 2012 and have never been happier! His name is Chance and he is very smart and well behaved. Everyone that meets him falls in love. They all say he is the happiest dog they have ever met.

A year and a half later we decided to adopt another puppy and this time chose a female. We brought Chelsea home in October of 2013. Best decision we have ever made was to have two. She is adorable and trained very easily also.

The thing we liked most about Prides Poodles is that the puppies are all raised in a very clean and loving home which includes children being around. Their poodles are not caged and have free run in the home and they are also taken outside to play and do their duties as soon as they are old enough.

My mother also decided in 2013 that she was ready to bring a toy poodle home and chose Prides Poodles too. She has a black female, Mitzi, that was born in July 2013. Her parents are Kinika and Mojo. She also trained very easily and is a great puppy with lots of personality!

We would recommend adopting from Prides Poodles any day! You are more than welcome to contact me with any questions at 231-730-8558. You won’t be disappointed with Prides Poodles puppies!

I cannot say enough on

I cannot say enough on how well loved the puppies are at Pride’s Poodles. As soon as I walked in the door to get my puppy, I was greeted by Becky’s husband with one dog in his arm and another in a sling. You could tell that every dog was loved on and adored by Becky and her husband. My havapoo is the smartest dog I have ever owned and very playful. He is pad trained after a little extra work once he got home. With a clean environment and great demeanor of dogs, I would not hesitate to buy from them. Actually, my daughter is getting one soon!
