HYPOALLERGENIC PUPPIES AVAILABLE IN IL
These cuddly fur-babies are all hypoallergenic non-shedding toy / tiny to small dog size.
Westies are also hypoallergenic, they have their own page 🙂
We plan to only have a couple litters a year of Designer Poodle crosses, Teddy Bear (Shichon/Poodle), or Maltipoo (Maltese/Poodle) puppies a year. Aryne's favorites!
See below for availability. Parents are at the bottom of the page, or on the Poodle parent page, available puppies here at the top.
See the other pages: "About our puppies," "what comes with your puppy", "FAQ" located on the contact page, and "To get a puppy , or not?" page above.
Puppies are all born in our home under constant supervision. A puppy is a very serious decision. 10 to 14 or more years of care and companionship. These puppies all have long coats that require regular grooming, both brushing and trimming. Please do not get a puppy, or a dog if you have any hesitation about long term responsibility of a furry best friend. We love our puppies and dogs and only want them in a home where they will be a part of the family!
Many make terrific therapy dogs. Plus being hypoallergenic they are tolerated by most people even if they are allergic to dogs.
Current Litters, if any are available they are listed below!
Angel should be coming in season fall 2018. She will be bred to Cappuccino for multi-poo puppies.
It will be 2019 when Ellie will have more Teddy Bear puppies. See the Cavapoo page for other soft furry puppies.
Slide show are past puppies of Ellie and Bubba's, including Eleanor (Ellie-Bubba daughter).
History of our hypoallergenic Mom's; Angel, and Ellie!
Angel is a purebred Maltese, only weighs 5 pounds and is grown. APRI registered. Sire is AKC, with a very nice pedigree.
The Maltese are full of themselves and so tiny. Perfect for those who want a really small dog that has some spunk, crossed with poodle they are much easier to housebreak and just as spunky.
We will eventually have Malti-Poo puppies with her and Cappuccino.
Angel thinks she is a princess, only under Jasmin, our spayed pet Pomeranian Queen Bee, who beehives she is Art's bodyguard.
We thought Westies had sass! Angel at 3 months and 1.5 pounds was going to take down a Shepherd who invaded "her" home. Granted she had to start at the dogs' toes, since that was all that could fit in her mouth, but bite her toes she did! Dixie was curious, but not impressed, and tried not to step on her. 🙂
She has since learned its not polite to try and chase visiting dogs out of the house. She still is ready to put them in their place should they not follow her rules, but she's more obedient and looks to see if I am watching!
After watching her I now understand how there are so many tiny terrors in the dog world with people who have no idea what to do, or mistakenly think its "cute". Angel was reprimanded for acting out of line.
At our home us people get to decide if visitors are welcome, instead of the dogs. I think life runs a bit smoother this way.
How Angel came to be "one of the pack."
When got Angel she was almost dead, and only 12 days old. We heard of her distress through someone looking to buy a motorcycle from Art. We insisted they take the pup to a vet for care. Their vet said she was "fine" and didn't do anything to help.
I explained she was going to die if she wasn't treated. They said she had not been nursing in over 12 hours, and was crying non-stop and getting weak. I offered to take the puppy and try to save her. They agreed to bring her to me.
A limp half-dead puppy was placed in my hand. She was a fat puppy, but limp as a dishrag, and had terrible yellow foamy diarrhea. In addition to those obvious signs for alarm they said she would still not nurse, and had been now crying piteously for almost 18 hours by the time they brought her to us! She was so weak she was no longer crying.
Our vet is much better and will treat tiny babies. I had to tube feed her as she was too weak to even swallow without risk of aspirating.
After a week she could take a bottle and was on the mend.
We ended up purchasing the puppy to keep her from going back to where she had come from. 3 of her litter-mates had died before we got her. The acquaintance who was the one who had helped little angel find her way to us had also said Angel's mom was so matted the groomer had told the family it was actual neglect. The 5 pound matted mom is was allowed to roam the neighborhood without supervision.
Needless to say I was very attached to the baby after feeding her every 2 to 4 hours around the clock for weeks and wanted her safe.
Maltese are a bit difficult to housebreak and she is unfortunately not an exception. She will still have accidents at 10 months of age. Much better then she had been. In part it is our fault too as we are use to our easy to housebreak dogs and did not watch her as well as we should. The cross with another breed, particularly a poodle is said to be much easier to housebreak. Our Poodle, AKC Bubba is too large as he is 12 pounds. We are hoping Cappuccino, our AKC chocolate merle poodle, will be small enough.
Angel, at the dirt bike race we took her and Bubba too.
Angel was fine until the start of the race when all the bikes went quite, then all started and took off in a thunderous roar. The sudden noise frightened her. By the end of the day she was good with it. Jenny, Hunters beautiful mom, was so happy I brought puppies for them to play with. Angel and Bubba loved all the attention and cuddling!
Photos from the race and other random times. Some with her "asian style of grooming I tried out on her! In the slide show above.
Ellie is a "Shichon" a cross of Bichon Frise and Shih Tzu.
I personally think they are a bit slow on the uptake, but it is one of the reasons they are so sweet and don't get into things much. They don't chew things up, they don't get bored and creative in finding things to do, (like opening cabinet doors...). Ellie will take a piece of dog food and play with it on the floor.
My oldest daughter in FL wanted a super easy dog who could tolerate being home most of the day by itself and picked this breed. We found the puppy for her, a friend who has small hypoallergenic dogs and does the first generation cross with AKC parents. Ellie is just a doll, only 8.5 pounds and sweet as can be.
Unfortunately my daughters life had a big upheaval and she had no quality time for Ellie. We brought Ellie home with us. She sleeps with us since she was accustomed to sleeping with my daughter. She is so easy, just sleeps there and doesn't hardly ever wake any one up.
Art felt sorry for Ellie who had not been around other dogs and was terrified of them. He made a point of giving her extra attention. He started taking her in the car and she travels so well he has made her his traveling companion. She has gone on quite a few long road trips with him and is always well behaved. Since she doesn't shed at all you don't have to worry about hair on your clothes while traveling (if that is something that may bother you.) She is now great with dogs and plays with them. It took months!
The Shichon coat is so fine it seems to always want to tangle unless kept very short. Crossed with poodle the puppies are very easy to keep groomed! In addition Shih Tzu have a reputation of being difficult to housebreak, the poodle cross with them alleviates that problem as well. Ellie had not been correctly house trained to start, and took a long time to re-train. Bubba, the poodle, even being a stud dog is very well housebroken.
The puppies are easy to train and both parents love children, and get along with all the other dogs and animals on the farm plus have wonderful coats, sweet personalities and are just adorable!
Our first litter, 2 of the boys were adopted each by families who came to see westies, and did put a deposit down for a westie. The relatives who accompanied them here to see the puppies decide they had to have a teddy bear themselves! They are just that cute, soft and snuggly 🙂
Aryne kept a black female, Eleanor, who we now have in a foster to adopt home. She moved and could only have 2 dogs where she lives. The family adores her!
