|Place of Birth:||Hinckley, Illinois, United States|
|Birthday:||February 8, 1999|
|Health Issues:||PRA (diagnosed at 9 years of age)*|
*Teddy was diagnosed with PRA at 9 years of age. PRA is caused be a recessive gene. When Teddy was bred in late 1998, there was no DNA test available to show if a parent was carrier of the recessive gene. The first time I mentioned to Maureen, Teddy's breeder, that he seemed to be having some difficulty seeing in dim light, even before the diagnosis of PRA, she did what a caring, responsible and ethical breeder would and should do. She placed Teddy's sire in a pet home (his mother had been placed in a pet home years earlier) and tested any remaining relatives of his still in her breeding program. I plan to get my next toy poodle from her because I firmly believe that she is an ethical breeder who I completely trust and who I highly recommend to anyone looking for a quality toy poodle..
