What We Do

Since 1989, we have been breeding apricot miniature poodles. We do not conduct nor promote crossbreeding to avoid possible genetic health problems.

How We Started

Our owner, Penny, received her first apricot poodle in 1988 from Marlene Miller of Kalista Poodle. The lovely female pooch she bought wasn’t good enough for shows, but she bred her and got her very first homebred champion. Penny has bred seven champions, all carrying her kennel name.


Our Puppies

Health Measures We Take

Our female poodles have been tested “A” for Progressive Retinal Atrophy (PRA) and hip score. We only breed these dogs once a year with males who have also been tested. All puppies we have produced have championship lines.

What They Eat

We feed our female dogs with a raw diet while our puppies have a raw diet and dry dog food. This way, whoever buys these adorable poodles can choose the food for their pet.

Play Area

Miniature poodles are intelligent and friendly dogs. They love interacting, which is why we have a dedicated space where they can play freely.


Other Services

PJs Apricot Miniature Poodles is a retailer for Columbia River Natural Pet Foods. We also do pet sitting for dogs we have bred.

“I spent two years looking for a puppy before I found Penny in 2013. My last poodle was a girl, which is what I was leaning towards. Penny had a litter of three beautiful boys. I fell in love and 9 weeks after their birth, I brought home my puppy, Bandit, who turned two last month. He is an absolute joy. He is also a little thief, living up to his name. Bandit and I went to school (Basic and Advanced Obedience classes using positive reward based training) and Bandit proved to be one smart puppy. Now when he tries to steal something, I say, "Leave it," and he walks away and picks up a toy. He also loves to catch a Frisbee, chase balls, go for walks, and curl up in my lap when I watch TV. I'm glad I found Penny and I'm especially glad I decided to get a boy.”

“Cooper has been with us for five years now, and we still say almost daily, "he's the best dog ever". He has a great temperament....high drive when he's performing, but totally mellow when hanging out with us. He's extremely smart and has been easy to train. We absolutely love this little guy. Thank you Penny!”


“Thank you, Penny, for our beloved family member. PJ's raises the most social, beautiful, and healthy puppies you will ever find in this area. Since Penny raises them in her home as her own, my puppy had such an effortless time adjusting to us and our routine. My dog returns regularly for boarding, so I have seen over and over the loving care and attention all her dogs and puppies receive. It's quite a special place.”
