I'm Nikki McKenna. I have been breeding miniature and toy poodles from American and International lines since 2012. It is important to me that I breed healthy, happy puppies with beautiful conformation. We raise all puppies in our home and I use puppy culture to develop well-adjusted and well socialized puppies that will be loving members of your family for years to come.
My bloodlines come from American and International Champions. We proudly boast the following bloodlines: Inishmoor (American), Trademark (American), Pipashand (UK), Bonoks (FCL Russian), and our newest line introduced is from the award-winning International Kennel Bewitching Stars out of Florence, Italy.
We are a family kennel and all of our puppies are handled from birth. The youngest members of our family (now all teenagers), are tasked with the day-to-day care and handling of each and every puppy, ensuring every puppy gets individual attention. We raise them in our home, not in a kennel where they are exposed to the sounds and smells of everyday life in a busy household.

We do all breed and variety specific recommended OFA and DNA testing. For our minis, we have hips, patellas, eyes, heart and DNA testing done to insure a healthy litter. For our toys, we have patellas, eye, heart and DNA testing. Hips are not recommended for toys.
Our puppies can be visited after they receive their first vaccine at 6 weeks old. A puppy application must be submitted and approved prior to visiting our home for safety reasons.
We release our puppies between 8 and 10 weeks of age. It depends on the confidence and independence of each and every puppy. We evaluate each puppy individually and make decisions based on what is best for the puppy's health and well-being.
