About Us

Our Family

The Russo Family  has lived in the San Diego area for generations. Toni and Rick have 3 children, as the children are growing up Rick and Toni spend more and more time with their furry family members! 


Gus is our male F1 Goldendoodle. After many years of not really wanting a dog, Toni fell in love with a Goldendoodle and had to have one of her own. When Toni, Rick, and daughter Giavanna went to pick out their puppy, Gus picked Toni. There was no way Toni was leaving without Gus. This was the beginning of our journey. Gus is a very active, super friendly boy! He loves people and wants to be close by all the time! He is our gentle giant.


Stella is our female Standard Poodle. After deciding to start a breeding program Toni & Rick had hoped to find a red female standard poodle. On a whim Toni did a quick online search and found a breeder close by that had a litter with a couple still available. Again Rick & Toni jumped in their car with daughter Giavanna in tow and went to just meet the breeder and see the pups. Stella picked them, and Toni & Rick were smitten. They were lucky enough to take Stella home that day. Stella has a shy, calm, loving personality. She is super athletic and loves to play catch, jump, and play agility games!
