About Poodle Pawssy
My name is Darla Hrankowski, my journey began in December 2016, when I experienced a slip on black ice resulting in a traumatic brain injury. I had prior to my injury, purchased a small standard poodle, a red little girl we called Lucy, which the timing was likely not the greatest decision. It turned out to be the best decision and just what I needed at that time. Lucy was a character and a very active 8-week-old puppy. She intuitively barked at me to get up. I taught her to bark very quietly (like a whisper) when I experienced migraines from the fall. Undoubtedly, the smartest dog I ever had. I ultimately trained her for assistant work to be my service dog. My love and dedication to the Standard Poodle breed gave me my life back.
I am now motivated towards a breeding program with a focus on family companions and service work temperament to assist those who experience permanent disabilities.
