Sweet Basil’s F1 Pyredoodles

Meet our…Pyredoodles! Suga is a full blooded solid white Great Pyrenees and Dash is a full blooded Parti colored Royal Standard Poodle. These F1 hybrid pups were born on February 5, and will be 9 weeks old on April 9. FullSizeRender.jpg

Why breed for a Hybrid, you might ask? Because they’re the best of both worlds! We have worked on this particular Hybrid for almost three years, to make sure we got it right! Our Pyredoodles have thick and wavy coats, complete with manes, making it the perfect combination of both parents. Their coats are water resistant! This litter is white black Parti colored! The males from this litter are charting to be about 100 pounds! Big babies!! The puppies are intelligent, and following some basic commands already. Their characteristics are perfectly down the middle- calm like a Pyr with affection like a Poodle. They like to play in the water and with balls, but are equally as happy taking long naps!  The Pyredoodle is an excellent family and guardian dog. With proper training, because of their intelligence and loyal personalities, they would make a wonderful service dog. If you want a more laid back, bigger “Doodle”, this is your breed!

The Standard Poodle is also a skilled hunting dog,  with extreme intelligence, a relentless drive to catch its quarry, and strong swimming skills.

Great Pyrenees have a weather resistant double coat consists of a long, flat, thick, outer coat of coarse hair, straight or slightly undulating, and lying over a dense, fine, woolly undercoat. The coat is more profuse about the neck and shoulders where it forms a ruff or mane. In nature, the Great Pyrenees is confident, gentle (especially with children), and affectionate. While territorial and protective of its flock or family when necessary, its general demeanor is of composure and patience and loyalty. It is a strong willed, independent and reserved breed make it an excellent Livestock Guardian Dog. It is also attentive, quite fearless and loyal to its duties. The Great Pyrenees’ size makes it an imposing guardian.

An 1840’s General Store situated on our property, is used as our on site Farmer’s Market. The old General Store was once the central hub for a railroad community, and served many important roles in the community of Goggans, even a United States Post Office until the 1960’s. It later served a new, bigger community purpose, inspiring our Farmers Market To You program to be born. This building is registered as a Historical site, and is adjacent to the old “Doctor’s Building”, which is rumored to have served as a Courthouse, among other things. The history on our property, rich with farming and community purpose, inspired us to serve our community in a new and exciting way.

We, both David and I, have always had a passion for growing flowers and plants, rooted from wonderful Grandmothers’ teachings. We, like everyone, began to make a more conscience effort to eat healthy and naturally grown fresh food. Since we have 80 acres, we began by adding a “small” acre and a half vegetable garden. When people began driving an hour or two, just to buy our tomatoes and cucumbers, we realized there was a real need in many communities for families like ours….and Farmers Market To You was born. We have been blessed to expand in to several of our neighboring communities, with our Farmers Market To You Market Basket program…and touch and reach families along the way. We  donate food and cash to needy families, food ministries, PTA’s, churches and other vital community service organizations in each of the communities we serve.
