POODLES AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION

UPDATED:  THURSDAY – JULY 18, 2019

NOW AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION:

“AVA” is a sweet, gentle and very quiet, black, AKC Standard Poodle who comes to us from a breeder in southern Minnesota.   It was best that Ava not be used for breeding as she was intimidated by all the other dogs and quickly became very shy about everything and everyone.

We have been working with Ava.  Our experiences and knowledge of these reserved Standard Poodles is that in a loving, calm and easy going home, they WILL become the amazing and wonderful Poodle that they were meant to be.

Ava Enjoying The Toys

Ava loves and really wants to be with people.  She just needs a loving and patient family for her to realize people can be trusted not to hurt her.  Ava also gets along just fine and enjoys being with other quiet and gentle dogs that will NOT dominate or “bully” her.

This most beautiful girl is 23” tall from the floor to her shoulder and weighed in at a thin 36 pounds.  As you can see in this picture, she needed to gain some weight.  After her spay and her becoming more familiar with our quiet home, along with LITTLE help from the appetite stimulate prescription called “Entyce”, Ava is now eating a quality kibble mixed with canned food and has GAINED 2 POUNDS!  Good girl!

Almost 2 years old (November 27, 2017) Ava is a great opportunity for a family willing to continue working with her.  As we have already seen, you will also quickly see her change and grow more loving and friendly while she becomes a member of your family.

PLEASE:
*NO cats, NO small dogs and certainly NO aggressive or assertive dogs.  Ava should be an only dog or with another older, or gentle, or any easy going dog.
*NO young children.
*A fenced yard will be required as Ava has been a kennel dog all her life and is not leash trained.  Ava does love to run and greatly enjoys our large fenced back yard.
*STANDARD POODLE EXPERIENCE will be given priority.

Ava is VERY smart and quickly learned about house training with our “puppy routine”.  She will run up and down the steps, in and out of our home and has a strong desire to be a member of a family.

To the right family, Ava’s adoption fee is $800.00, which includes the $55.00 Minnesota state sales tax.  She is up to date on all of her shots, she has been wormed, Heartworm / Lymes / Ehrlich / Anaplas tested negative, placed on a heartworm preventative, Home Again micro-chipped and registered.   Also, her teeth have been cleaned, she has been spayed and Vet checked “thin, but healthy”.

Her adoption fee also includes a leash, collar, her large wire crate, a bag of quality dog food, treats, toys, a folding toy box, a new blanket, a big, soft, doggie bed that fits in her crate, along with lots of good information to help your adoption move forward on the right paw!

It’s HOT outside! Lets go back inside the house now.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 



 

NOW AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION:

“JAZZY” is a sweet and gentle, blue AKC Standard Poodle who comes to us from a breeder in southern Minnesota.  Jazzy had several litters of puppies and is now being “retired” to become a family pet.

While she is a little shy at first, she has quickly warmed up and enjoys attention from men as well as women.  She is an exceptionally soft and easy going girl who even enjoys being an understanding and caring mom to “Ava”.    Jazzy also enjoyed being with our older grandchildren who are very patient with these reserved Poodles.

While Jazzy gets along just fine with other quiet and gentle dogs, it would be best that she be an only dog.  She loves and really wants to be with people in a loving, quiet and patient home.

This beautiful girl is 23” tall from the floor to her shoulder and weighs 41.5 pounds.  She needs to gain weight, but that is now happening as she has been spayed and has  become more familiar with our quiet home.

At 2 years of age (November 10, 2016) Jazzy is a great opportunity for a family willing to continue working with her.

PLEASE:
*NO cats, NO small dogs and certainly NO aggressive or assertive dogs.  Jazzy should be an only dog or with another older, or gentle, or any easy going dog.
*NO young children.
*A fenced yard will be required as Jazzy has been a kennel dog all her life and is not leash trained.  Jazzy does love to run and greatly enjoys our large fenced back yard.
*STANDARD POODLE EXPERIENCE will be given priority.

Jazzy is VERY smart and quickly learned about house training with our “puppy routine”.  She will run up and down the steps and has a strong desire to be a member of a family.

To the right family, Jazzy’s adoption fee is $800.00, which includes the $55.00 Minnesota state sales tax.  She is Vet checked “healthy”, spayed, teeth have been cleaned, up to date on all of her shots, Heartworm / Lymes / Ehrlich / Anaplas tested negative, wormed, placed on a heartworm preventative, Home Again micro-chipped and registered.

It’s getting to hot outside now. Let’s go inside!

Her adoption fee also includes a leash, collar, her new large wire crate, a bag of quality dog food, treats, toys, a folding toy box, a new blanket, a big, soft, doggie bed that fits in her crate, along with lots of good information to help your adoption move forward on the right paw!

No Matter Where I serve my guests, they seem to like my kitchen the best!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 



 

NOW AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION:

“DIVA” and “GUCCI” are a pair of Miniature Poodles who came to us two years ago from a humane society in Wisconsin where they had been surrendered by their owner. They had been quickly adopted by a senior couple.  However, less than a year later, the couple’s health began to fail and the Poodles were returned to the shelter.

Picket Fence Poodle Rescue was contacted to help this exceptionally special pair of Poodles and we also quickly found these two wonderful Poodles a loving family. Unfortunately, two years later, the family needs to move and can not take Diva and Gucci with them. Once again, these two amazing Poodles are sadly without a home and family.

Gucci and Diva are creamy white Miniature Poodles who were born November 9, 2013. This brother and sister pair had been together all of their life. However, we do NOT see that they are “bonded”, so they are available for adoption as a pair OR we will separate them so they are able to find a “forever more” family which they need and deserve.

Diva (pink collar) measures 14 inches tall (floor to shoulders) and weighs a healthy 12 pounds. This is a pretty girl who is also a gentle, soft and loving Poodle. Perfect in every way and wants to join us in bed at night.

Yet like her name, Diva is more outgoing and interested in everything! What a Diva! And can she run!!! Like her brother, she loves to visit with everyone who comes to visit, enjoys sitting in any lap open for her or will snuggle up next to you if all laps are full.

Because Diva loves to run, please understand that she needs to be walked on a leash or in a securely fenced yard/pen. This is an extremely smart girl who found an opening in our fenced yard and dug her way out. YIKES! However, with Gucci’s help, we did catch and hug that naughty Diva.

As pictured, she was so sorry for what she did and has promised never to do that again. The hole was plugged, our fenced yard was secured with underground chicken wire (instructions found on U-Tube) and Diva has NOT escaped since.

 

Gucci (purple collar) measures 15 inches tall (floor to shoulders) and weighs a healthy 13 pounds. Despite his obvious under-bite, Gucci has an extremely gentle, soft, easy going personality. What a lover boy!  Don’t tell Mike, but I just LOVE this boy.  He would also love to climb into bed with us, but we’re going to let the new family decide if that is O.K.

He is active, alert, sociable and outgoing, but always ready to sit in your lap or follow you around the house.  Soft, gentle, quiet and loving, he is about the most perfect Poodle you could find.

What a opportunity for the right family. These 5 year old Miniature Poodles are the first ones to welcome everyone into our home, are quiet loving Poodles that enjoy being with men as well as women… while tolerating children. They would prefer to be the children and the center of attention in your family. Put on their harnesses, and both these Poodles will walk to the end of the world with you.

Both have been Vet checked healthy and recently had their teeth cleaned. They are spayed and neutered, up to date on all of their shots, Heartworm / Lymes / Ehrlich / Anaplas tested negative, wormed, heartworm tested negative and placed on a preventative, Home Again micro-chipped and registered.

Each Poodle has a $400.00 adoption fee which includes the $30.00 Minnesota state sales tax. This fee will include all of their vet work, kennel, leash, collar, harness, bag of dog food, treats, some toys, a toy box, a new blanket, a big bed, along with lots of good information to help your adoption move with the right paw forward!

 

 

Here are pictures of our how we set up our “secured” fenced yard with chicken wire, pea rock and landscape timbers…..

 

With zip ties, the chicken wire is easily attached to our chain link fencing then spiked into the lawn.  Yes, the grass will grow over the wire!

 

To the right, you can see that we put down old wire grates (like you have in your oven) at the gates.
Notice how unhappy poor Diva is now that she can’t dig under the gate and escape?

 

At the bottom of our deck, we’ve framed in the chain link fencing, with landscape timbers.  We then used old chain link fencing as a base and had 11 tons of (inexpensive) pea rock hauled in.

The dogs just LOVE this giant “kitty box” and they do use it.  It’s also very easy for me to find (the poop!) and clean up the yard.  Bonus: it saves much of our grass.  More ideas can be found on the internet!

 

 



NOW AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION:

Bonny on the left, Emma on the right.

“EMMA” AND “BONNY” are very small, cute loving apricot, Toy Poodles who are sisters.  These girls have been together all their life with a family that deeply loved and well cared for them.  Sadly the owner’s husband died which left the owner to downsize in every way possible as she simply could not afford the lifestyle she had been used to.   Sometimes the greatest gift you give is to let go….  So Emma and Bonny came to us in need of a new and loving family.

Bonny

Emma and Bonny were born August 6, 2012.  They are 9” tall (measuring from the floor to their shoulders) and are ACA registered (different from AKC).  At just 4 pounds, Emma is smaller than her sister Bonnie who weighs in at 5 ½ pounds.

The family did give me 2 pages of information about these girls including how they enjoy playing with toys, snuggle in your lap, obedient trained, let you know that someone is at the front door and how they really want to be a part of a family.

A Happy Bonny

I will share this little bit of information that was written about them:
These are the two most loving, emotionally amazing, sweet, content, joy-filled dogs I have ever known. Nothing gets them more excited than seeing their leashes for a “walk”, or being told they have permission to “get up on the bed” to watch a movie with you. All they want in life truly is to be by you as much as possible, to be in the sunshine, and to stretch their legs on long leisurely walks.  Although they would never say no to some treats or play time, like fetch!

Emma

PLEASE:
*NO large, aggressive or assertive dogs.  These girls need to be your only dogs.
*NO young children.
*A securely fenced yard will be nice, but they are leashed trained.  Just be aware that these girls are VERY smart.  If there is the opportunity to escape and travel the world, these girls can quickly find a way of getting out of your fenced yard!

Emma and Bonny will need to be adopted together.  To the right family, their adoption fee is $600.00, which includes the $41.00 Minnesota state sales tax.  They have been spayed, are up to date on all of their shots, Heartworm / Lymes / Ehrlich / Anaplas tested negative, wormed, placed on a heartworm preventative, Avid micro-chipped, registered and Vet checked “healthy”.

Emma

We want you to be aware that Emma did have a needed heart surgery to fix her heart valve at the University of Minnesota when she was just a few months old.   PLEASE ALSO BE AWARE that this little girl is doing just fine!!  No medication, no more Vet work or any future concerns are needed.

Emma did just fine with her spay a few months later.  She also did great at her recent visit to our Vet, where she and Bonny just had their expensive and extensive dental work done.
This included a teeth cleaning along with the removal of various rotting and broken teeth.  They still have a few teeth left, so their tongue will not hang out and they will eat a hard kibble, which is more nutritious and less expensive than any soft dog food.

Notes say these girls are afraid of men, yet they do like my husband, Mike!

Their adoption fee helps pay for some of their Vet expenses, PLUS it includes their leashes, collars, crates, 2 bags of quality dog food, treats, toys, two folding toy boxes, two new pink blankets along with a couple of big, soft, pink doggie beds and lots of good information to help your adoption move forward on the right paw!

 

 

 

 



NOW AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION:

“ABBY” is a very smart, easy going, little white Toy Poodle who is a survivor!  The owner had told us that she was 6 years old, but from the AKC papers that came with Abby, we can see that she was born May 6, 2006!

At one time, “ABBY” and “BENTLEY” (information above) had been deeply loved and well cared for.  Sadly, when the owner became ill, the Poodles were severely neglected.  Somehow the owner recently found the strength to contact various Humane Societies.  She was told they were full and referred her to us.  The very next day, I drove to northern Minnesota to retrieve the Poodles…..

Abby has slowly recovered from her horrific experience and extensive Vet work by spending most all of her time resting in the various dog beds we have on the floor in our living room and at her foster home.

She is now very observant of what is going on around her, is quick to learn, loves to be held and cuddled, likes her food and enjoys the warm sunshine.   She will also do the Poodle “zoomies” where she loves to run around really fast.   And yes, Abby is a VERY smart Poodle girl who knew all about house training while she will run up and down the steps into the fenced back yard.

Such a very sweet and lovable 5 pound little girl who is only 9″ tall.  She loves to be held, cuddled and loved.  You can clearly see that she has hope a loving family will adopt her even though she is a “senior” with a limited time left before she flies into our Great God’s loving arms.

PLEASE:
*NO puppies, NO large, aggressive or assertive dogs.  She needs to be an only dog OR with older (senior dog like herself), or gentle, or any easy going small dog.
*NO children.
*A fenced yard or pen will be required as she loves to run and is not leash trained.

To the right family, Ava’s adoption fee is $250.00, which includes the $17.00 Minnesota state sales tax.  She has been spayed, is up to date on all of her shots, Heartworm / Lymes / Ehrlich / Anaplas tested negative, wormed, placed on a heartworm preventative, Home Again micro-chipped, registered and Vet checked “healthy”.

Also, Abby’s 3 hour dental surgery had 18 broken, black and rotting teeth being removed.  She is certainly feeling and doing a LOT BETTER!  She is now eating a quality hard kibble just fine with her 2 remaining teeth.  Thank you for your donations and Dr. Amanda at Barrington Oaks Vet Clinic!

Her adoption fee also includes a leash, collar, her crate, a bag of quality dog food, treats, toys, a folding toy box, a new pink blanket, a big, soft, pink doggie bed that fits in her crate, along with lots of good information to help your adoption move forward on the right paw!

Can you see a smile on her face?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 



ADOPTION PENDING ON BENTLEY:

“BENTLEY” just loves men as well as women.  He is active and will follow me all over the house while being a perfect gentleman in our home (house trained).  He loves his food, treats and a soft cushion to sit on.  Clearly, this big boy is very smart, wants to be with people who come to visit, is extremely loving, has a sense of humor and yet, can still have his own set of rules.   I truly have never met a Poodle like Bentley!

No eyes to see

Bentley came to us with “Abby” (information below) from a home where at one time he had been deeply loved and well cared for.   When his beloved owner became ill and no one helped, the Poodles were severely neglected.  Somehow the owner recently found the strength to contact various humane societies.  She was told they were full and referred her to us.

The very next day, I drove to northern Minnesota to retrieve Bentley and Abby.  When I got home, I had to slowly shave the balls of matted hair and feces from Bentley’s body and around his eyes so he could see.  Bentley was racked with fear, but stood quietly and still during that ordeal.  He was also grateful for the soothing bath and soaking of his open sores.  At his Vet visit the next day, Bentley was placed on antibiotics.

Does this picture make me look fat?

Bentley came to us scared out of his mind, very independent, didn’t understand “come” (we worked on that with treats) and was difficult to catch.  Yet this 14″ and 15 1/2 pound, phantom Miniature Poodle who was born May 20, 2008 IS EXTREMELY SMART and has quickly healed from his physical and emotional scars to become a loving Poodle!

Trying to catch him now is a game!  He enjoys playing that ” TAG!  You’re it!  Catch me if you can” game!  Smart boy!?  Or silly comedian?  I found that if I ignore him or sit down, he will come and sit right next to me, look into your soul while asking that you give him hugs and attention!  His trust HAS GROWN while learning that life and people can be good.

Are we done yet?

*He would be good as an only dog or with another older, gentle, quiet, easy going dog.
NO large, aggressive or assertive dogs.
*Bentley is fine with our grandchildren, but it’s best he be in a home with NO young children.
*A fenced yard will be required as he is not leash trained.

At his recent dental appointment, Bentley had his teeth cleaned with only 8 rotting and broken teeth being pulled.  He has now been Vet checked healthy, is up to date with his shots, Heartworm / Lymes / Ehrlich / Anaplas tested negative, wormed, Home Again micro chipped and registered and ready for his new family to come forward and adopt him.

Did you say “Treat”?

To the right family, Bentley’s adoption fee is $300.00, which includes our $21.00 Minnesota state sales tax.  His adoption fee also includes a leash, collar, his kennel, a bag of quality dog food, treats, toys, a folding toy box, a new blanket, a doggie bed, along with lots of good information to help your adoption move forward on the right paw!

Bentley has quickly healed and continues to become a loving and amazing Poodle that I’m sure he was at one time years ago….   Yes.  Dogs do forgive and grow with love!
