Retired into a wonderful pet home.

UKC Name: Spirit of Adventure at Ghibli

Titles: CGC, TKN, VHMA

Ellie is a small white, happy, joyful dog with pretty and moderate structure. Ellie Mae's pedigree includes generations of UKC Champions and even some AKC Champions! She is very toy motivated and food motivated. She is intelligent, eager to please, and people focused. She has high prey drive and moderate to low energy - our resident coach potato.  Ellie Mae has passed her health testing!

Ellie Mae joined our family in September 2022 from another breeding program. She stayed for a year here at Ghibli before retiring into her forever home where she enjoys more one on one attention in a family with just one other dog. Although we had grown Ellie into show coat and had entered her into a show to earn her UKC  Champion, she came into heat two months early and due to her older age, decided it was best not to wait any longer to breed her. After weaning her pups, the most perfect home came along for her and we decided that it was in the best interest of all for her to enjoy retirement sooner rather than later. She has three daughters placed in homes that have plans to show in conformation. Although Ellie never got to prove her structure in the conformation ring, I am excited to watch her daughters prove it for her! One of her daughters has already won a Reserve Best Puppy In Show!

The Standard Poodle breed standard reads, "Temperament : Carrying himself proudly, very active, intelligent, the Poodle has about him an air of distinction and dignity peculiar to himself. Major fault: shyness or sharpness.

Ellie matches that perfectly! She is a joyous, self-confident dog that carries herself so happily and proudly. She shows no shyness or anxiety. Her temperament is exactly what I hope to produce in my pet or performance dogs and we are hopeful that she will contribute that wonderful temperament to my lines in the near future.
