Mello came to us shortly after his 2nd birthday at the start of 2022 after we purchased him from a 3rd party. We contacted his breeder right away to see if she wanted him returned to her. She allowed him to stay in our home with our program for a litter. He stayed here for about a half a year to earn his UKC Champion and be bred to Miya for her retirement litter (the Treasures). While here, he was fully health tested above and beyond CHIC recommendation by me. After earning his UKC Championship, his breeder Missy welcomed him back at Kissme Standard Poodles. He has a wonderful temperament. He is confident, social, outgoing, and friendly. He has a lot of exuberance but also has an offswitch. He has gorgeous coat texture and he exudes breed type. He passed all his health testing with flying colors! We are forever thankful to Missy for the opportunity to participate in this dog's journey.
