Co-Own or Guardian Home - What is It?

 Without placing future breeding prospects into guardian or co-own homes, breeders must either keep a larger number of dogs or retire their mamas and papas. We love our dogs dearly as a part of our family. We have had to retire dogs and we are learning that that is not right for our family and much too hard on our hearts. In our future generations, we will be looking for guardian homes and co-own homes to keep our breeding program growing and moving forward or to place show quality puppies in other approved breeding programs so the bloodlines can continue. 

The guardian dog is used in my breeding program if it passes all health testing and titling. My guardian dogs that return to Ghibli for a litter, your purchase price is refunded! I believe guardian family's should be fairly compensated for their commitment to helping me achieve my goals. In addition, if you are local to me, your dog can be groomed and boarded here for FREE! for the duration of the contract. Your Guardian or Co-own dog lives with you and is your dog forever! We know our puppy buyers love their dogs as one of the family and it means much more to them as part of their family than it means to my breeding program. Ghibli Poodles has a very fair and thoughtful contract. Please email me to discuss or receive a sample contract.

Ghibli Poodles only breeds when we have a wait list.
Please let me know if you are interested in puppies from Memrie, Marnie, Clover, Meadow or Kiki.
More information about each female and possible litters below.


Memrie is a 30 lb Poodle - a wonderful little size and will be bred once more, stud choice to be determined. She has a very happy, bubbly personality and loves meeting new people. We are interested in placing the pick of her litter(s) into local guardian or show homes with co-owner or other approved breeding programs. Memrie is a Best in Show Winner and we are excited to see the quality of the puppies she will produce!


We are excited to be planning a litter of SMALL STANDARDS 30-40 lbs in apricot or black.  Marnie will be bred for her first litter sometime in late 2024 or 2025. Marnie is full of puppy antics but also always ready for cuddles! I expect her to be able to produce performance prospects with a great off switch. These puppies will have natural tails; Marnie has a tail that is naturally short and straight and we are aiming to keep that quality.


We are excited to be planning a litter of reds, maybe with some potential for apricot or black depending on our stud choice.  Clover has maintained a deep rich red color. Clover is a sweet, happy, delightful little girl. She has moderate energy and with her litters we will be aiming to keep that easygoing, calm temperament. She is 22 inches and just over 30 lbs.


We are excited to be planning a litter of white, maybe with some potential for cream/apricot or black depending on our stud choice.  Meadow is a playful and bold girl that exudes confidence. She is friendly to everyone she meets. She is drivey and eager to please, and loves to have a job. She is 22 inches and 38 lbs.


Kiki is a sweet, very happy, and cuddly little girl. She is 21 inches and just over 30 lbs. She earned her Champion fast as a puppy and we are excited for her ongoing show career. In the future, I will be looking to place her keeper puppies in guardian homes. Kiki is our youngest in the program and wont be bred until atleast 2026.
