Welcome to Elmbrook Poochon Puppies, where our passion lies in breeding toy Poochons/Bichpoos. Our carefully selected parents produce reds, apricots, and creams with white blaze, chest, and/or socks. At Elmbrook, we specialize in breeding only the smaller variety, weighing between 4-11 pounds when fully grown. We take pride in creating healthy, happy puppies for loving homes with families who will appreciate the unique qualities that only Poochons can offer.
Whelping, raising and placing pups takes a tremendous amount of staying power, effort, education, money and knowledge of applied science, and we take this responsibility seriously at Elmbrook. We believe that every puppy deserves a happy, healthy life, surrounded by love and care. That's why we invest so much time, effort, and resources into our breeding program. From making sure our pups are properly socialized to providing a healthy and nurturing environment, we go above and beyond to ensure the well-being of our pups and their new families. We understand that adding a new puppy to your family is a big decision, and we strive to make the process as smooth as possible. We are available to answer any questions you may have throughout the process. We stand by our commitment to place puppies based on compatibility, rather than popularity. We believe in being responsible breeders, which is why we ensure that our puppies are healthy before they go to their new homes. If you can appreciate selecting a puppy based on compatibility - we would enjoy working with your family.
A Poochon or Bichpoo is a Toy Poodle x Bichon Frise cross. A Cavapoochon is a cross between a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, Toy Poodle and a Bichon Frise. We now only breed the toy sized Poochon. We are not new to breeding quality puppies with a reputation for excellence; From 2000-2016, we built our reputation as a trusted Dog Breeder of Irish Jack Russell Terriers and Heritage blends of the Jack Russell and Sealyham Terrier. When we wanted to slow the pace, we passed the 140 year old lines on to our daughter (connemaraterrier.com) and said goodbye to breeding for good...or so we thought. When our last Jack Russell passed, it was then discovered one of us had an allergy to dogs. This is the how and why the first Poochon entered our lives.

How to sniff out a "puppies for sale" scam: If you’re thinking of buying a puppy:
SEE THE PUPPY LIVE - Try to see puppies in person first - if not possible or convenient, ask them to Facetime, Zoom or similar to show you the puppies and where they live. Any legitimate breeder will find a way to work with you here. Do not go by photos only... even if they appear current.
Ask if they keep a camera on the pups so you can see they are well cared for every day. If they have nothing to hide, they should be doing this as it adds credibility to their program.
Avoid wiring money, using an app or a gift card - legitimate breeders may ask for cash, check or credit card. Some may use Paypal or Venmo out of convenience... but you should be very sure before sending anyone anything.
DO MORE RESEARCH - Do they have a website? Can you find any other information on them on the web? Get a name and address and look information up on Google. Are there any complaints about them?
Ask for recommendations so you can speak to other families they have worked with.
Keep in mind that MOST advertisements for puppies are either from large groups of "puppy millers" who have created websites to appear more legitimate or from backyard breeders who know little about proper puppy rearing. - It is what it is - most are not worth taking a chance on.
Consider adopting from a local shelter.
I have been in the breeding world for 25+ years and I have never seen scams like people are now experiencing. If in doubt, move on... there will be another puppy.
