ADOPTION PENDING ON…

“VITA” who is a very pretty, sweet, gentle and loving black Standard Poodle girl that comes to us from a family in northwestern Minnesota.   Vita was a family pet who was well cared for, deeply loved and had two litters of puppies.  Sadly, her owner’s health began to fail and she could no longer properly care for all of their Poodles, so Vita was surrendered to us.

Vita is just 5 years old (09/11/2014), a heavy 55 pounds and measures 34 inches from the floor to her shoulders.  She is very much a VELCRO Poodle who greatly enjoys and thrives on attention from men,  women and older children.  Velcro meaning she will cling to anyone willing to give her attention.  She will push her muzzle under your hand until you pet her.  I could see her enjoying a visit to a nursing home or hospice care unit to visit, love and share her joy with the residents.

This big girl is active and has been around other large dogs all her life.  She is just fine with them and greatly enjoys their company.  Yet she still loves and really wants to be with people while following them around the house, going for rides in the car, meeting people and being with our older grandchildren who are patient and loving with all of our Poodles.  Vita IS an extremely nice Standard Poodle girl and a great opportunity for the right family.

Vita is also VERY smart and knows how to move into your “space” to get your attention so you will pet her.  She will “sit” and “come” on command.  She also understands and knows the word “No”.   If allowed, her desire for attention can become excessive.  You will need to know how to say “no” and mean it.  Vita has been a perfect girl in our home (house trained), will run up and down the steps, has a strong desire to be a member of a family, is learning about the leash so we can go for walks, and absolutely LOVES treats!

 

PLEASE:

*NO cats and certainly NO aggressive or assertive dogs.  Veta would be fine with another large, friendly and easy going dog.
*NO young children as she will knock them over.
*A FENCED YARD WILL BE REQUIRED as Vita likes to run and play.
*STANDARD POODLE EXPERIENCE will be given priority.

Did I tell you this is a really nice Standard Poodle?  So Vita’s adoption fee will be 1 million, trillion, zillion, billion, dollars.

However to the right family, her adoption fee will be $550.00 which includes our $38.00 Minnesota state sales tax.  She is Vet checked “healthy”, has just been spayed, teeth have been cleaned, she is up to date on all of her shots, Heartworm / Lymes / Ehrlich / Anaplas tested negative, wormed, Home Again micro-chipped and registered.  Copies of all her past Vet records are also included.

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

NOTICE: Like most all reputable rescue groups, we do NOT adopt our Poodles to families who live more than 500 miles (1 days drive) from our location here in central Minnesota.

 

 

 



ADOPTION PENDING ON….

“LAYLA”  who is a cute and tiny Toy Poodle that came to us from an owner who could no longer care for her.  While Layla and Mika look very similar, the family is unsure if they are sisters.
Although the two girls have been together all their life, we have found that they are doing much better and are more sociable by themselves.  So we are adopting them separately to the right family.

Layla is a silver female about 6 years old, 3.8 pounds and measures 7” tall from the floor to her shoulder.

Layla reminds me of the few silver Toy Poodles I have owned and deeply loved.  While they have their “quirks” of being independent and tend to be a one person dog, they are extremely loving and loyal.

Layla will be the first one in my lap when I sit down so she can cuddle while being given love and attention.  But when she’s had enough attention, she will jump down and lay on the big, blue cushion.  She can sometimes not be the easiest one to catch, yet has learned to sit nicely on her cushion when I want to pick her up and is learning to “come”.

This tiny girl will follow me around the house, want me to pick her up when I’m working on the computer, prefers women, can be unsure of men, will easily go up and down steps, jumps onto our furniture, would prefer that all the other Poodles go away and is very quiet.

As seen in this video, Layla does like to play with certain toys while everyone else just watches her….

This is very easy going, loving and gentle girl who needs a quiet home. Because she is so tiny, it would be best there are NO large dogs and NO children.

Layla is not leashed trained as she is NOT a dog that you will take for walk.  She would rather enjoy being held while YOU walk.   A very securely fenced yard or a REALLY LARGE exercise pen (pictured) will be required.  Any hole in, around or under the fence will be quickly found for her to escape!  You will also have to watch her while she is outside as she can be an easy dinner for some hungry eagle, owl, fox or wandering coyote.

Layla has been just perfect in our home.  However, we do have her on our “routine” of going outside at specific times.  As with all our Poodles, we do watch them and kennel them while we are gone.

While Layla tested positive for Lymes and Anaplasmosis she was treated with Doxycycline and IS JUST FINE!!  NO PROBLEMS!  Layla also had an extensive and expensive teeth cleaning along with the removal of various rotting and broken teeth.  She still has teeth left so her tongue will not hang out.  She is a very good eater and gobbles down her tiny hard kibble dog food that is mixed with some soft dog food.

To the right family, her $350.00 adoption fee includes the $23.00 Minnesota state sales tax.  She has been spayed, is up to date on all of her shots, wormed, received a heartworm preventative, Home Again micro-chipped, registered and Vet checked “healthy”.

Her adoption fee helps pay for some of her Vet expenses, PLUS it includes her leash, collar, crate, a bag of a quality little dog kibble, a box of soft dog food, a warm sweater, treats, toys, a folding toy box, a new pink blanket with a dog bed and lots of good information to help your adoption move forward on the right paw!

 

 

 

 



ADOPTION PENDING ON…

“SKITTLES” who is a Multipoo (Maltese x Poodle)!  While we normally only accept Poodles, Skittles came to us at a special request from Joseph, the grandson of the late Susan Johnson of Sues Poos.  (Story below).

Skittles is a wonderful, white female about 2 to 3 years old, 9 pounds and measured 11” from the floor to her shoulders.  This very cute, active and silly girl just loves to play and run.

As you can see in this video, she greatly enjoys playing with the toys and then collecting them in her doggie bed while completely ignoring all the other Poodles.  When she’s done playing with the toys, she wants to be in your lap so you can give her some love and attention.

 

 

Skittles is smart and has quickly learned about living in a home with people.  She will check to see where I’m at and then decide if wants to stay with me or go back to play with her toys.  She is also very gentle and fearless.  With her tail happily wagging, she greets everyone as her friend.

While Skittles enjoys all the other Poodles, likes to play with other dogs her size, but also  likes being independent which is a reflection of the Maltese breed.  Example, while in our back yard, she’ll not play with the other dogs, but instead will follow all the dogs around while looking under all the fallen leaves!  Not sure what she’s looking for, but she has a good time doing it!

Skittles has been just perfect in our home.  No accidents!  However, we do have her on our “routine” of going outside at specific times.  As with all our Poodles, we do watch them and kenneling them while we are gone.

Can I go and play now?

This is a very easy going, soft and quiet girl who needs a quiet home with NO large dogs, NO cats as she will chase them and NO young children.  Skittles is not leashed trained, so a very securely fenced yard will be required.

To the right family, Skittles $500.00 adoption fee includes the $35.00 Minnesota state sales tax. She has been spayed, her teeth were cleaned, she is up to date on all of her shots, wormed, tested negative for Heartworm/ Lymes/Ehrlichia/Anaplasmosis, received a heartworm preventative, Home Again micro-chipped, registered and Vet checked “healthy”.

Also included is her leash, collar, crate, a bag of a quality dog kibble, treats, toys, a folding toy box, a new pink blanket with a dog bed and lots of good information to help your adoption move forward on the right paw!

 

 

 



ADOPTION PENDING ON…..

“MIKA” who is a cute and VERY tiny Toy Poodle.  She came to us from an owner who could no longer care for her.
Although Layla (below) and Mika have been together all their life, we have found that they are doing much better and are more sociable by themselves.  Yes, Layla has been adopted and Mika is greatly enjoying her life now without her big sister bullying her around!

Mika is a black female about 6 years old, 2.5 pounds and measures only 6” tall from the floor to her shoulder.  I have found that she is such a loving black Poodle who is smart, loves to be held and carried, wants to be the center of your attention, always ready for a treat and will be the first to find a sunny spot to lie in.

Mika will follow me around the house, wants me to pick her up when I’m working on the computer, prefers women, is very unsure of men, will easily go up and down steps, jumps onto our furniture and comes when she is called.

Mika is just fine with all the other little Poodles and really likes to cuddle up with them on the big, blue dog cushion.  This very easy going, loving, gentle and TINY Poodle girl is very quiet and needs a quiet home with NO large dogs and NO children.

Mika is not leashed trained.  This is NOT a dog that you will take for walk, but would rather enjoy being held while YOU take your walk.

A very securely fenced yard or a REALLY LARGE exercise pen (pictured) will be required.  Any hole or opportunity to escape a fenced yard will be quickly found for her to get out.  You will also have to watch her while she is outside as she can be an easy dinner for some hungry eagle, owl, fox or wandering coyote.

Mika has been just perfect in our home.  However, we do have her on our “routine” of going outside at specific times.  As with all our Poodles, we do watch them and kennel them while we are gone.

Mika enjoying the warm sunshine

Mika tested negative for Heartworm/ Lymes/Ehrlichia/Anaplasmosis, had extensive and expensive teeth cleaning along with the removal of various rotting and broken teeth.  She still has teeth left, so her tongue will not hang out.  She is a little picky about eating her tiny hard kibble dog food that is mixed with some soft dog food.  So I’ve learned to mix and serve it to her on a plate instead of in a bowl!  YES, I am spoiling her!

To the right family, Mika’s $350.00 adoption fee includes the $23.00 Minnesota state sales tax. She has been spayed, is up to date on all of her shots, wormed, received a heartworm preventative, Home Again micro-chipped, registered and Vet checked “healthy”.

Her adoption fee helps pay for just some of her Vet expenses.  PLUS it includes a leash, collar, crate, a bag of a quality little dog kibble, a box of soft food, a warm sweater, treats, toys, a folding toy box, a new pink blanket with a dog bed and lots of good information to help your adoption move forward on the right paw!

 

 




NOTICE!!

FRENCHIE – adopted

Since the sudden and unexpected death of Susan Johnson of “Sues Poos”, Picket Fence Poodle Rescue had been working with her husband Dale and family.  Sue had made it clear that if anything should happen to her, that Dale contact us…. and he did.

We immediately contacted our National POODLE CLUB OF AMERICA RESCUE as we knew this was going to be a very sad and difficult situation that would require a lot of help and support from other qualified Poodle Rescue groups.

BINGO – adopted

After Susan’s funeral, my daughter Theresa and I met with Dale to take a complete inventory of the situation.  Dale and his family had decided that taking care of the 50+ adult dogs, puppies and pregnant females while dealing with Sue’s death was too difficult for them to handle.  Sues Poos were then surrendered to Picket Fence Poodle Rescue.

CANDY – adopted

Because we limit the number of Poodles we can accept, a professional transportation service was arranged and paid for by our National PCA Rescue.  Picket Fence Poodle Rescue paid the STAPLES VET CLINIC to go to Dale’s home, provide the needed rabies vaccinations with certificates and health certificates for all of the dogs.  Thank you, Dr Kim Harff!

SEYMORE – adopted

Sue’s Poos were then moved to various PCA Poodle Rescues group where they will receive all their expensive and extensive Vet work (spay/neutering, worming, shots, dental, etc.) before they are available for adopt to qualified families.

THUNDER – adopted

This has been a difficult time for Dale, his family and me.  I’ve known Sue for 10 years and perhaps you will remember some of her dogs (as pictured) who were surrendered to us from Sue.

A special thank you to our “IT” children (Michael, Heather and especially Theresa) who helped Dale’s family obtain needed computer information,  then close down Sue’s Facebook page and her web site.  This will help Dale who now deals with the loss of his wife.

NIKKI – adopted

PATCHES – adopted

Only two dogs came to us from Sues Poos…. “Lilly” and “Skittles” who has been adopted.

“Lilly”, who was due any day and unable to be safely transported, came to our home where she  gave birth to her litter of 5 puppies on Thursday, October 17th.

Sadly, only 2 of “Lilly’s” puppies have survived.  With my years of experience dealing with breeding and showing Poodles, I tried so hard (tube feeding, vitamins, etc.) to save them all.  But it was too many puppies for such a tiny little Poodle, plus they were obviously premature.  My tears flowed and the angles wept as I buried each newborn puppy.  But I know they are all now in the loving arms of our Great God.

The remaining 2 boys are strong, healthy and are doing just fine.  Lilly, a small 2 year old Toy Poodle, is such a good and loving mom.  Lilly and her puppies will NOT be available for adoption until after Christmas.  Thank you for your patience and understanding.
